Marshall Tucker, Blind Faith, Mountain & Bad Company. I haven't been able to shut off my iPod for days now!
You a** ...lol...I am so jealous! Boy, we could have had a lot of fun together if the timing would have been right...sure we wouldn't remember but perhaps we would have taken pictures with a polaroid.
I am going to have to listen to some Hook...I will think of you now every time.
Dav, Was it Kathryn & Duffy & the Enemies? They were somehow connected to Lindsay Buckingham I think.
Remember when 8 tracks came with new cars? ROFL
Look at you go Sarah! Did you grow up listening to the music radiating out my window or what? :). Lest us not forget Jimi Hendrix, The Who. Pink Floyd,Jefferson "Airplane", Neil Young w/Crazy Horse, Johnny Guitar Watson, Phil Collins, TenYears After....And IBKleen?,,God, Quicksilver Messenger Service. I haven't thought about them in ages!
Think I'll have to go down to my barn and see what "8 tracks" I have left in my box! There's one band I'm trying to think of, can visually remember listening to them in my bedroom with the black light on looking at all my posters on the walls..Don't you just hate that when its on the tip of your tongue, can hear one of the songs in my head, and just can't connect. I remember part of the lyrics mentioning "Our Pres Nixon" verbadum, but can't connect. I'm thinking it was a solo album that one of The Dead might of made.
And mention of Woodstock? I was looking on the web here about 3 months ago and tripped across all the interviews and stuff they did in celebration of the 40th anniversary last year.. With alot of digitally reworked video..I got lost in that for about 4 days showing my kids what a "real" concert was :):) Darn, I was just shy of being old enough to go..My older brother did get there though. At the time we lived about 60 miles away from Max Yasger's farm..Got a great video of him speaking to the crowd ,then present day interviews with Michael Lang , Artie Cornfeld, and Wavy Gravy, the hog farm commune guy that brought all his group in to cook, cook, and cook again along with some other things.. .
Yes, 8 tracks,,still have them, but no player to play them on anymore :):)..This thread certainly is a blast from the past! Got all kinds of memories swirling here....
Yeah Yeah Yeah
Talking about old concerts
Seen Led Zeppelin they were the opening act for Vanilla Fudge, 5 encores nobody cared to see VF after that.
Pink Floyd concert one of the best featuring dark side of the moon 360 sound.....wow
Frank Zappa, Alice Copper great shows.
Elvis that was a concert to remember.......Women throwing panties and hotel keys on stage??
Okay, Phil Lesh...where have I been? Hanging my head, tail between my legs, sneaking out...
WHO IS PHISH! I didn't think we were suppose to hurt others feelings here. LOL. Get on youtube and listen to scents and subtle sounds, or sparkle. Some like some dont.. Ya know how music just becomes apart of us (kinda like drugs) music's an addiction I will keep.
Spell check please...what I have done to these poor bands names. I don't remember a lot of it but what I do remember was cool at the time. Good memories!!
That so rocks,,,I would do anything to have been in ur shoes just half of those times,,,You must have the best stories!!!!!!!
Oh yeah,and in what I remember to be 1967 maybe I saw Cream, The Who and Mitch Ryder and The Detroit Wheels play in NY. It was cool..I think..LOL
Okay, now I feel liver spots bursting on my hands I am so old..thanks for the memories guys?
You are not going to believe this and I will have to take a lie detector test. Dr. Hook, lead singer Dennis I might add, was a guy who I hung with at a park in Jersey City. I suppose you could look it up. I am not tooting my own horn..it is just cool.
Janis, saw her at least 3 times, alone, with Jimi Hendrix and of course at Woodstock.
How about the Bnad..The Weight? Saw them in CA. Saw Hendrix twice, Morrison once, the Dead more times then I can count, Airplane more times then I can count. Eric Clapton...Carlos Santana, Freddie Mercery.
Wow, you guys are freaking me out!!!
I am stuck in the 60"s...........
A song that has always helped me when I am down is Bob Marley "Three little birds",,Gotta love CCR and Floyd,,how the list could go on,,wish I was born 30 years earlier my life would be great!!!!!!
I want your CD IBKleen!!! Throw on a few ACDC songs and we're good to go!!!
I was at the Fillmore West in SF when Janis performed her final shows with Big Brother..unfortuntely I had to listen from outside as the line went all around the building and she played 2-3 shows. Was great to hear though. Saw her several times prior to that.
I forgot to mention CCR (how could I forget them guys) and I love Jefferson Starship...Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Dr.Hook - I love Dr.Hook, are there others with me on that?
I do enjoy the posts about music, music has been such an overwhelming inspiration for my fiance and I - when we feel bad, we just crank up some music and it leads us through....every time.
A song that I can always enjoy is Gloria Gaynor...I Will Survive...lol
Every time this post comes back up it gets me singing. I'm sure I posted earlier but I won't go look. I know me, it was all 60's and 70's bands probably.
I was just thinking of some stuff I have on CD in my car:
Traci Chapman, UB40, Stevie Wonder, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Hot Tuna, Blind Faith, George Benson, Johnny Lang, Frank Sinatra, Bob Marley, Genesis.
I must be getting old, who the heck is Phish?
Always Loved Metallica! But Pink Floyd is one of my favorites! The DOORS KICK A__! Janis Joplin is One Of The Greats! Seen OZZY a couple times he rocks. Rage Against The Machine ROCKS> I could go on and on. MUSIC IS MY INSPIRATION!
1. Lynyrd Skynyrd 2. movie themes ( braveheart, Legends of the fall, and other classical symphony acts) 3. zeppelin 4. Jethro Tull . 5. Be bop Deluxe
Mother Love Bone, Grunt Truck, The Melvins, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Korn, Static-X and of course........
Although I am not a fan of newer country, there is a song I want everyone to hear that struggles with addiction....Rodney Atkins (I am almost certain) 'If You're Going Through Hell'...Check that song out, it is very inspirational.
Phish was at Bonnaroo last time we went - I am a dead fan for sure - I love Pink Floyd, Doors, Beatles, CSN&Y, love love love Janis Joplin. - I was born in the wrong era for sure!
Ya can have the drug's but Im keeping the music..... Dance on my friends dance on...
I was at the last Seattle show. Awesome. Phish ive been to 43 shows and loved every second of it. I understand why some dont enjoy it. I think its the memories of the shows and people I saw.
Maybe it's my age...never been able to get into Phish. Only saw them once about 15 years ago..opened for Santana...
Now the Dead...what I'd give for just one more show.
