  3. Is it too soon to ask what Queen will use in the future for it's closing music? Is God Save The Queen still going to be a thing?
  4. If they were interested in it, they'd run it themselves (management company or whatever). On that basis, I'll say no - they won't show. I suspect that they want to not 'publicise' on Neil's death. Want to leave it quietly where it is and just let everyone remember their brother each in their own way.
  5. Kind of a shame that some are criticizing the precision of semi-retired older guys who no longer rehearse their complex parts for months on end.
  6. Going through an Alcatrazz and UFO phase. Imprisoned on an island, rescued by aliens..... :)
  7. Doug, The Charismatic Voice, and Lost In Vegas - the 3 best 'analysis' channels on YouTube. IMHO. I don't always agree with their opinions, but I find myself learning far more than I disagree with. All good.
  8. New Jersey is almost as bad as NYC these days. Thee were some fuckups in the mid 2000's with State Worker pension investments apparently. So since then NJ has been jacking up the taxes to cover those commitments. My info is current as of 2016....but i doubt much has changed since then. Except more taxes of course.
  9. Ask them what they pay in rent today. Ask them for proof of payment. if they can't provide, then lay it on the line. $900 a month, and that is a kindness. If they balk, give them a month for 'compassion' reasons before you start the legal process. So that you can tell the judge at the eviction hearing that you tried to be reasonable (to counteract the sympathy ploy they will obviously try), but your creditors will be zoning in soon and you want to put the affairs in order - while trying to help these people if you can. Just my opinion. Good luck.
  10. Kinda bar-band quality to tat intro. But still, that was great! I noticed Geddy looking up at the lasers at one point and he smiled.
  11. Ged and Lerxst have still got it!!! This made my weekend for sure. Yeah!! Nice that a Rutsey song was part of the set.
  12. I've got 6 primary influences that make me want to bang on the bass. Geddy and Cliff were the first 2. The other 4: Thunderfingers Squire JPJ Geezer Many others too, of different talents and styles.... but they are second tier to me. Only in terms of importance as influences. Like, Harris, Wooten, Sarzo, Lake, Hamm, Sheehan, Wetton, Myung, that guy from Phish.....
  13. Was number 1 for a long time. But not anymore. Not sure I have a favorite anymore. A bunch of bands just kind of cycle in and out of my playlists these days. Depends on the mood I'm in too.
  14. I am late to post this, as ORFIE passed earlier in August back in 2020. Rest in peace brother. You are not forgotten.
  15. I think the best we'll get for an ESL 40 is the alternate live stuff we got in MP40.
  16. Styx, tomorrow night. Outdoor gig. REO and Loverboy opening up.
  17. Spend some time in the suburbs of Charlotte - your own family tree will start to look like a straight line just by the force of induction. You can see the lack of education and critical thinking skills, in just about everything they do Shoes are a fancy thing apparently.
  18. Rand is gone too. Grace Lee Whitney.
  19. So the status of limitations has now expired. Ged and Al can come out of hiding.
  20. I was going to see Anthrax and Black Label Society. Was really looking forward to seeing a couple of NYC area bands, and my first show in a while. Figured I'd be front and center in my L'Amour shirt. But COVID is freaking me out.... dude from work died last week - he thought he caught COVID at a small theater in Nashville. f**k this, I'm out.
