    too many to mention!
  • Musical Instruments You Play
    drums/percussion/nose flute
  1. "Natural Science". Just really intense drumming, especially the first three quarters of the song up through the "Science like nature..." line. "Secret Touch" for the same reason. The drumming over the solo section seems almost angry and ferocious, which is not normally a word to describe his playing, but understood given the circumstances of making that album.
  2. Saw Styx last night at Billy Bob's in Ft. Worth. Great show! Larry Gowan has Dennis De Young's voice down pat. Really stayed true to the melodies. Good showman too what with spinning his keyboard rig around on it's riser and even standing on top of the instrument. Oh yeah, he plays it real well too! Song list covered all the hits: Blue Collar Man, Grand Illusion, Lady, Miss America, Snowblind, etc. They played a 15 minute medley in the middle of the set of a bunch of other tunes which I can't all name (the opening to Mr. Roboto drew big cheers though) Chuck Pannozzo was introduced late in the show to come and play Fooling Yourself, Suite Madame Blue, and Come Sail Away. He played well, and looked pretty good despite his illness. If they come around your way, go see them... a definite good time.
  3. QUOTE (-D-RocK- @ Dec 17 2006, 05:48 PM)"Dave's not here man" "No man, it's me! DAVE! Now open the goddamn door!!!" Love it.
  4. Reality TV is the prophecy of Andy Warhol come to fruition: "Everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes." I used to watch The Osbournes; they were amusing. It made be realize you can live in Beverly Hills and still be trailer trash. Gene Simmons show looks decent too, though his family is decidedly more normal. It looks more like an unscripted sitcom. For example, Shannon Tweed decided to hire a rabbi in an attempt to cajole Gene into a shotgun wedding at her birthday party. Gene almost left skid marks out of the room when the rabbi walked in.
  5. QUOTE (sullysue @ Aug 7 2006, 09:53 PM)The way seeing the Jesus fish on the back of the car of the woman who flipped me off on 183 and then cut me off is funny. Now THAT'S funny! And unfortunately, all too true!
  6. QUOTE (Milton Banana @ May 24 2006, 11:47 PM) Call me crazy, but check this out... Chris' girlfriend/wife says she's pregnant. But three weeks back when they were all having dinner at Tony's house with the stolen wine, didn't she have some and compliment how good it was? If you knew you were pregnant, would you be drinking alcohol? Remember, the Feds had used Adrianna for a while to keep tabs on Chris. He is not the sharpest tool in shed by any means. I think Chris' wife is a Fed. We've got a few more episodes to find out... oh well... there's that idea shot to hell. What do I know?
  7. QUOTE (lerxt1990 @ Jun 1 2006, 07:38 PM)I'm not sure if Im amused or nauseated. Kind of both. The choreography was hysterical. Whos' that group that makes LOunge Lizard songs out of rock tunes..., same idea very funny.... Richard Cheese and Lounge Against The Machine are who you're thinking of. very funny stuff.
  8. wife is out of town and I hate going to a bar/club/restaurant, etc. by myself. Gives me an awkward feeling.
  9. Would you like a meent? Eet's only wafer thin...

  11. I read somewhere, probably in one of my wife's gossip rags, that Rachael is married to a guy who is a part time musician in some NYC band. So therefore I have to vote Rachael. However, the same article mentioned his band sucked! Rachael was apparently the only one dancing (which stirs the imagination up more).
  12. I saw Spock's Beard Sunday nite in Fort Worth. They played a small theatre here, and did not have a great showing, but those who were there were treated to a great show, and the band played very enthusiastically. Neal is no longer with the band, but Nick is no slouch on vocals, and their touring drummer, Jimmy Keegan is more than capable. It was the last night of their mini-tour, so they goofed around on stage a bit more and Nick kept sipping on Jack from a shotglass that was always being refilled, but the music as was solid as you would expect from The Beard. Seemed a mix of mainly mid-period and new Beard, though Beware Of Darkness was the opener. Nick and Jimmy played a double drum solo. Ryo is to Beard what Alex is to Rush. Complete cut up on stage. He made a comment that when they play in Texas again, we should all bring lots of buttplugs because the airport screeners keep taking his away. Someone in the crowd offered up their water bottle, and Nick looked at it and laughed. Ryo then sang the word "buttpluuug" in place of a word he was supposed to sing in Thoughts, which made Nick crack up and blow his vocal cue. Alex and Ryo in a room together would be quite something. Dave Meros, above all, is a cool dude. Not only did he book the arrangements for the whole tour, but he spoke to a bunch of us fans before and after the show. Very friendly and giving of his time. Makes me like the band even more. All in all a great night from a great band.
  13. going to see Spock's Beard tonight at Ridglea Theatre in Ft. Worth! General admission so I'll get there early to be nice and close. I'll miss not seeing Neal Morse singing, but whadaya gonna do?
