Music Fandom

    All of them!
  • Other Favorite Bands
    Beatles, Stones, Who, Hendrix, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd...
  • Musical Instruments You Play
    Mainly guitar. Also bass & drums.
  1. I thought of the song "Ashes To Ashes" by Bowie.
  2. I guess I found all my favourite artists during the early 80's. 81-85. Can't really remember exact years or exact order, but at the age of 8-12 I found Rush, Zep, AC/DC, Who, Stones, ZZ Top, Floyd, Skynyrd... Two exceptions, though. My mother is and was a huge Beatles fan, so I got into them in the 70's as even a smaller kid, because she used to play their albums all the time. I loved the melodies and the variation. Then again, I found Grateful Dead as late as 1987, when In The Dark was brand new.
  3. You know, I really, like, get it, you know, what you're, like, saying, you know.
  4. Why not those two. Then the next batch could be 2112, Grace and Clockwork.
  5. English is a fine language, and I'm quite pleased I have learned to speak it rather well. Still, there is one aspect that could be bettered there - the cursing. Your swear words are lame compared to ours. In Finnish we have PERKELE. When a Finn bangs his fist to the table and shouts PERKELE, everyone, no matter what language they speak, understand that it is a curse word. So do whatever you wish with your mild 4-letter words, I will always have PERKELE up my sleeve. (Perkele = Satan, The Devil, The Apocalyptic Beast)
  6. It can't be "both" then. :) If you guess how many coins I have in my pocket I give both of them to you.
  7. Well, I'm not particularly into Olivia Newton-John.
  8. I am a fan, and I feel very bad for the whole family. Sad news.
  9. ...and what connects them? These guys have ALWAYS been true to their vision and have never produced any bullshit. They have never let me down, all their efforts have been good music. I love them all forever.
  10. Besides Rush, there are a few rock musicians I love above all. There are some dead ones - Jimi Hendrix, Ronnie Van Zant, Bon Scott - and a few living. Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Lemmy, Malcolm Young, Billy Gibbons. That's about it.
  11. Malcolm Young. AC/DC was his band right from the start, but Angus and the singers got all the media attention. Still, Malcolm is probably the best rhythm guitarist in rock'n'roll ever. Save perhaps for Keith Richards.
  12. The Stones "replaced" Charlie Watts several times throughout the decades. Sure they did, but it can be heard. For example, the producer Jimmy Miller played drums on "Happy" in Exile. It's good, but it lacks the "touch". The songs where Stones groove the most are played by Charlie. And you can hear it live. Nobody, NOBODY plays like Charlie Watts. I love Charlie Watts. I'm just nitpicking. If someone does not love Charlie Watts I'll kick him right in the nuts. (Night In The Ruts. Always wondered where that album got its name from...) I once worked security for a short time. One of my assignments was the Rolling Stones' Bridges to Babylon Tour announcement near the Brooklyn Bridge. I had to stand outside the restaurant on the deck and note if any boats or vehicles came too close. The Stones, Charlie, Mick, Ron and Keith, were milling around inside. I could see them through the windows. At one point they decided to come outside, on the deck, for a photo-op. The only Stone to acknowledge me was Charlie Watts. He looked at me and said, "It's a nice day to be outside." He smiled. The one one not to come across as ignoring me. By the way, Ron wood was pounding back the pints. True story. Damn, great story! Strange that Keith wasn't doing the same thing; to me he has always appeared as a down-to-earth gentleman. Well, maybe it wasn't his day then. The greatest thing about Charlie is the story I read. Once, in Paris, the Stones were in a hotel. Mick and Keith were doing their night club tour, while Charlie was back at the hotel, sleeping. The Glimmer Twins got back, and Mick was very drunk. He called Charlie's room from the reception demanding "HIS drummer to come out of his room." Charlie woke up, got well dressed, combed his hair, took the elevator down and when he saw Mick, punched him in the nose and dragged on a table. "Don't ever call me your drummer again. You are MY singer!"

Whenever my next band makes an album, it will be called "Anger In The Final". And the band will be named Space Lesbians.
