  1. Jungleland is the best song Bruce ever did. In my opinion. :)

     

    Not my choice. But more than worthy I totally cannot disagree with anyone ranking this number one.

     

    Mine is personally a split between New York City Serenade and Drive All Night.

     

    But Meeting Across The River and Jungleland are right up there!

    Huge Bruce fan. Jungleland is actually not one of my favorite songs of his but meeting across the river is .

  2. I saw Adrian Belew a few weeks ago, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds last Saturday and TOOL on Wednesday (my face fully melted off from this one!)... next comes King Crimson, King Crimson and King Crimson... Oakland, Denver and Toronto at Massey Hall. This is going to be a really good summer concert run for me!

     

    Rock ON!

     

    Just added Midnight Oil in Toronto, on Aug. 25. Another train trip from Windsor to YYZ... looking forward to another adventure to the east, eh...

     

    Rock ON!!

     

    Love Midnight Oil. Saw them do the show on the back of the flatbed in front of the Exxon building 30 yrs ago.

  3. Going to U2 tomorrow night, 30 yrs later to see The Joshua Tree again!

     

    The same friend who went to see Maiden went to the U2 show too. I'm more into intimate club/theater gigs these days. My last big show is probably going to be Roger Waters in a few months.

    I generally prefer smaller venues as well, but there's something to be said for a top band at a stadium sometimes.

  4. OK, I'm just beyond excited that all of you (well, maybe it's only 10 of you, but still) love this as much as I do, I thought I was the only Styx nerd here....

     

    I agree with mostly everyone. Trouble with the Big Show is a typical JY song and probably my least favorite. I love Locomotive, Red Storm, Radio Silence and Gowan's piano on Khedive is brill.

  5. Tribute to John Wetten with Asia including Carl Palmer on Saturday night. So excited to see Carl Palmer play .

     

    Carl (and his band) are awesome. Seen them about a dozen times Enjoy! Best set in years too.

    It was great. He's quite something, so it made me miss Neil LOL . But they did Fanfare and he did what must've been a 15 minute solo in the middle and it was just out of this world .

    Then Ken Dashow (one of the last cool rock DJs in nyc) interviewed the members of the band afterwards which was very cool .

     

    That's Carl. He's a never miss for me now (His band not Asia although I love Asia.)

     

    Saw some clips on you tube. It was awesome seeing Lisa Wetton play. That must have been very emotional to be there. She seemed like she was having a blast.

     

    Yes, it was really nice to see her play. The crowd was super supportive. I have some friends who are friends with a lot of Marillion fans that were there, and they know Lisa. it was cool.

     

    As for Carl, I wish I'd seen ELP, but at least I've seen him now!

  7. Twinkies ice cream

    where did you get that???

    It was at Foodtown it was just in the ice cream freezer with all the rest of them there's also Hostess cupcakes ice cream I think .

    It's really not bad it's kind of a butter vanilla ice cream with little pieces of Twinkie and a little filling is in there as well.

  9. I actually won tix through Live Nation to see Maiden again last night in Newark, never saw them before Sunday and now I've seen them twice for free! It was fun. Next up is the John Wetton Asia concert in NJ.

     

    That's awesome.

     

    My friends went Wednesday too. They said it was a good show...a lot from the new album.

     

    yes, it's a lot of songs from The Book of Souls. Which is fine with me, I like it!
