It's actually amazing how many people listen to blues without even knowing it. A lot of what people call "rock and roll" is really blues. Even bands like Led Zeppelin are blues oriented.

From opera to Rammstein, over Enya, Led Zepp and DPurple, slide to Dylan Donovan and CSNY, jump to Paganini and JSBach, back to Simon and Garfunkel and Pavaroti, continue with PFloyd Tangerine Drewam,Olfield and JMJar ...

 

Depends of day, and if I want to research particular author, style type or direction in music

 

On PC I have about 70GB different mp3 music, select and copy to phone and connect to little speaker in shop

Ah yes, I often listen radio drama, and talking program with articles from sociology, philosophy history etc etc

 

Sometimes good old classical rock is good enough, sometimes Verdy just feet well, but never silence

I just took a look on Wikipedia and Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown died in September 2005, so of the four I mentioned earlier (including BB) only Taj Mahal is still alive. I must have missed it but my wife's favorite, Oscar Peterson is gone - 2005 I think.

Serious bummer about the"King". I've seen him play a dozen times in the last 20years and he was amazing every single time.

 

He's left a huge recording library behind but he will be missed.

 

Best,

John

 

PS. Eric Clapton has a really nice tribute to BB on RollingStone.com. I would have posted the link, but I have no idea how to do that on my IPad. There are a couple of great videos as well. One is BB King and friends. It's wild. There's BB, Eric Clapton, Etta James, Gladys Knight, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Paul Butterfield, Phil Collins??, and a bunch of others. You have got to check it out!!

A tune from my CCR collection I thought appropriate to this forum. A classic!

The "finest" concert I ever went to was at the Orange County Fairgrounds in '68...  250,000 people.. Quicksilver, the Dead, Country Joe... I think I recall Janis and Hendrix but for 3 days it was a who's-who of that music. 

     Back in 69, if I remember correctly, a concert similar to a Woodstock was held outdoors by the UW Platteville (still a state university at that time) campus (sort of a backwater of Wi.) and was held for one day.  This concert, surprisingly enough, featured: The First Edition,  The Allman Brothers Band, Alice Cooper (complete with his Boa),  Blood, Sweat and Tears, and Mitch Rider with his Detroit Wheels. :o

    This was at a time when they were quite popular.  Being a student there, I was somewhat shocked to see that our school was able to put this concert together.  I am sure that they were all probably on country wide college town tours, but just the same the student body and alot of area residents were all thrilled to have such popular groups available! :dancetl6:

Wow Jim, I remember buying albums, then replacing them with cassettes then replacing  them with CD's.  Most albums I had to buy 3 or 4 times to keep up with technology.  I also went from an LP Player to a "boombox" to a Sony Walkman.  I just kept buying modern technology.  Looks like you embraced the past and hung on to what you had. Nice job. Would love to check out your place just to hear the songs the way they should be played.

Uriah Heep...  That brings back a lot of memories.  Some of my first kit builds were Dynaco amp, preamp and tuner.  They were all I could afford delivering pizzas in the evening while attending my first year of medical school during the day.  I still use the amp.

    Just about anything from Joe Walsh's Greatest Hits Album.  I'm currently working in the shop to his seven minute version of The Bomber.  Ho Hum, just another guitar wizard.  Hits with the Eagles, James Gang and more solo.  Often referred to as the clown prince of rock, as just about anyone that's seen him live in concert could attest to.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
