View Full Version : Music Influences
11-21-01, 06:37 AM
I would like to say thanks to all the people that have contributed to such a rich culter in the Arts.
It has been a major influence in my life, and I as an Artist I am the total sum of all my Listening experiances as far as style in Arts go.
*Just wanted to say that, top Female artists listed soon.....:)
* Im gonna list all my favorite Artist here on this thread.
Please additions are welcome
"GREEN GABLES", Waylon Jennings and the Outlaws........Waylon and Willie and the Boys:)
Soon Rebba McIntire's wonderful collection from My home in Oklahoma:)
Soon Bjl review page.....................coming soon;)

Well, I like Arts a lot, have seen beautiful drawings, but don't know exactly by whom. That is a pity, for I can't give you the name of such artist.:p
Ever looked at Bebelina's homepage? she makes Art, in a different way, but it is Art. Give it a try, perhaps you like it very well.
And Music is so dear to me, can't live without it, not a second, but I can't listen to it every second of the day and night. Sometimes you have to do things without your favorite music, but as soon as I get home, the Music play's again, oh yes.;)
You look it up in the thread Favorite Bands and Mucisians.
There I posted the most of them, but still I forget some of them to mention, because there is so much beautiful Music I love.
And Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones belong certainly in the toplist.:)
If you're a registered user on those sites and somebody is snaking your identity, notify the sites' masters then change your passwords. You may have to recreate your identity and refer to your old identity somewhere in your profile.
If they just happened to pick the name Bobby Lee first and have a profile that looks like you, well, hmm. Maybe you have a doppleganger.
If it IS the first one, GO GET THE ^%$&%!

I too am pissed off that somewhere out there a mini-army of "David Watanabe"s are pursuing successful careers in the public spotlight (or at least the public gutter behind the spotlight), possibly corrupting the purity of my name and my chances to make it big on the silver screen (or whatever). Alas, you think my parents would have been more creative than to marry a solid Christian name (feh) with perhaps the most common Japanese family name. If they really wanted to take the theme to its obvious conclusion, they should have called me "Jesus Watanabe". I guess that I'll make that my screen name.
11-22-01, 12:24 AM
So that really is you? Alright, that's very cool. I must admit the steel guitar does have an awesome sound to it.
Anyways, back on subject. The first thing I would do is contact the webmasters of those sites. If someone is truly trying to pretend to be you (more than just coincidental name), let the webmasters know so they can take action. I know that if that were happening on sciforums, I would take prompt action. Hopefully the operators of the sites are sufficiently decent people that they will recognize the gravity of the situation and respect your requests.
However, if they drag their feet or ignore you, you might have to threaten legal action or take things up to their internet provider. But, again, hopefully this won't be necessary.

Garth Brooks has certainly made his way from rags to riches. Coming from a small Oklahoma town not far from Ponca City Okla.
He played in every club in the state it seemed, over a 10+ period of time.
After a long process of getting a portfolio togather he made a break for Nashville, leaving the love of his life at home, to try to enter the ranks of the very few who ever make it in the Music Business.
After being drilled by the ranks so to speak, he returned home to his life long love....Broke, in more ways than one. His heart was also broken, because he really believed in himself, and the messages he was writing in his Music..
Well there is a happy ending to this story. He was contacted by a AR record spokes person, and the rest is history.....see biography?
Catch GARTH BROOKS and friends on Thanksgiving night for a STAR studded show.....
He got his "SATISFACTION".........good job Garth, and God bless!
*(this is a two part series.....more to come on the rest of the STARS who will Join Garth...)
I once had the pleasure of seeing him perform years ago in a small Oklahoma town....
My opinion is,
Its his Heart toward the almighty thats the real story of a STAR!
Bobby James Lee
more to come on JEWEL and friends......got to go eat some TURKEY with my stars.. My family...:)
11-22-01, 12:12 PM
Bobby Lee, I know a little of Garth Brooks songs, but didn't know this story about him. Nice to tell it, for it is always nice to know how some Mucisians live or have lived.;)
Though I know a lot of Artists who play their Music right from the Heart and didn't have a happy ending....really sad these Mucisians had to die in such rotten way...
Porfiry, I like that Jezus thing you mention.
Can I call you Jezus then, the next time? Do you still give handkisses then? It would be a pity if you should leave that behind with Dave (David)...:p
11-22-01, 02:39 PM
Sorry, Bobby Lee is fine, If your looking for the Christ, or Jezus, you got the wrong guy? It aint me babe!
I copywrote the name @BOBBY LEE@, its my intellectual property and its a trademark@ I like just fine.......
Why the interest, just asking or have you got a motive??
"CATCHER IN THE RYE"
available on selected book sites..
11-23-01, 10:59 AM
Bobby Lee, I was referring to the reply of Porfiry, above, look at it.
He says that if he wants to, he could change his name into Jezus, to play another character so to say. Here at Sciforums.
I was replying to him. Read my former post and that one of Porfiry, above, you shall immediately see what I mean. I even said his name before my reply to him, look at the former posts. Ok?.;)
Nothing wrong with Bobby Lee, oh no...
I like to talk to you and reply to what you have to say, really, no bother to me. Bobby Lee is a fine name and a fine person, believe me.:)
Do you have some other Mucians you know off and want to tell something about them?
The story about Garth Brooks was nice to read. I always like to know how good Mucians live or have lived their lifes.
Hope to talk to you soon.
Have a nice day.
11-23-01, 08:44 PM
Here is some more;
Larry King live yesturday had Paul McCartney on his late night show.
Paul as everyone knows was a former member of the "The Beatle", but after a fued between members of the Beatles, concerning a recording with APPLE records, he and the " Beatles" broke up. Paul and John Lennon, Ringo Star, George Harrison went their own way.
Paul and Linda(Former Wife) played for years togather as performer song writers, and toured extensively with the group"Wings."(Over America)
To me he has not changed one bit. He's still the sporting chap he's always been. Not to mention still a great writer.
While Paul came from humble beginnings in Britian, he never forgot how easy it was to lose what you have.
He currently has a performing Arts School in England and is active in its administration. I will also add, he does a damn good job at it to.
Come to think of it, he does a pretty good Job at most things he does. What can one expect from a Knight the Queen commisioned?
It so hard to mention the above groups without the other members. I mean no slam to any of them, I will write later on their careers as well.
The "Beatles White Albums" is probably the most controversial of all the recordings that the "Beatles" evr did. It left a mystery to this day at the real meanings of some of the songs.
Charles Mansion whom was prosecuted in the late sixties along with the "CHILDREN", swore that the "Beatles" where sending him messages. Songs like "Helter Skelter", and Piggy, Piggy!"
After exhausting investigations into this allegation, there was no link ever established.
However, one does wonder though when songs like "Sexy Sadie" where writtin, "Sadie Thompson" was a Mansion Child?
Or was that Madison.....
How about Leslie Van Houghton...or was that Hugoton?
Paul scored hit after hit with the band "WINGS OVER AMERICA", there shows where state of the art, and a major production live by anyone's standards..
I was lucky enought to have seen them in the old "MIRIAD" at the fair grounds in Oklahoma City, not far from where I was raised.
Band On the Run, Silly Love Songs, Uncle Albert, ect.., and so many more are music Icons to this day?
One song I remember him commenting on that was off the "White Albums" was a song called "Martha My Dear!" It was a harpscord sounding tune.
Paul later commented it was about his "OLD ENGLISH SHEEP DOG!"
"LET IT BE"

Jennifer Lopez is bouncing back like the true champion she is.
Some scandel threatened her career earning abilities when becoming involved with questionable characters sometime back involving a gun and a night club!
She almost bit the big one, so to speak following by some legal hassels.
Jennifer is looking good, and Dressed to kill with her new image.
Bobby Lee give's the girl a 10+ for her dedication to the Entertainment business.
This is the true Star quality that put her there to start with.....
"And What a Babe"
11-24-01, 11:20 AM
Charlie Danials and his band have a new Vid out on CMT., Its earmarked by the same professional performance's he is known for...
This is a tribute to the Everyday people.......
I think the performance on CMT was excellent.....
Hope Charlies around for another Decade.....
"A Country Boy Can Survive!"
We are looking into Hank Williams JR(S) recent works, we will get back to you on that one...
11-24-01, 12:57 PM
Are you confusing me with Banshee again? :confused:
11-24-01, 03:20 PM
Bebelina, guess it is not so hard to do to confuse other members, for we have a lot of times the same opinion. Though you always tell it in a more Sunny way.;) :p
Bobby Lee, thank you for the information about Paul McCartney.:)
Most of it I knew already, but the later things you tell about him and what he is doing now, I did not know. Thank you.
Jennifer Lopez...well...don't like her so much, sorry, but I like to read about the singing stars them all, so it is nice to read something more about her. Don't know a thing about her, just not so fond of her music.;)
The information about Charles Manson I did not know...A rather scary person that was, terribly violent together with the group he was surrounded with. He killed several humans, just like that, without any reason. Crazy creature....really.
What you are telling about Sexy Sadie might be true, but I wonder...
The Beatles making a song for one of C. Mansions helpers??:confused:
Charlie Daniels I know a few songs by him. Nice to read this information, for I am always curious how Mucisians live(d).
Go on please, I like to read it all.:)
11-26-01, 12:13 PM
Does anyone remember the song "One Tin Soldier Rides Away?"
I heard this on a Okc radio station but I didnt get the artist? Its been so long I couldnt remember?
11-26-01, 03:16 PM
Hi Bobby Lee, there has been some research done here for you, to find out who exactly sang this song.
It is coming from a movie called Black Jack and the woman who sings this song is now known by the name of Toni Braxton.
At the moment, the movie was there and she sang this song, she had a different former name. She changed it later on in her life.
One Tin Solider Coven/Original Caste
They don't allow you to copy the link and neither do I have the lyrics for you.
Toni Braxton herself has come up with a new c.d., so if you want to listen to that one, you have to go to the music store and listen there a little bit. It is the Blues she is singing on the new c.d.:)
Don't you love the Blues? What about Still Got The Blues by Gary Moore? Beautiful song.....
Well, I hope you can do something with this information on One Tin Soldier.
I am sure they know about this particular song in the music store.
Why don't you just go and ask it there? ;)
Perhaps some relative or friend of yours has this song on tape or so and you can copy it...
11-26-01, 07:24 PM
HEY YO Bobby E Lee McGhee !
just curious to know where on Fleet Street you live !
and for conversational content, I find Garth Brooks
THE TOTAL personification ANTITHESIS of the
Country & Western genre, devoid of feeling,
blandly expressionless,and quite frankly I am alarmed
insofaras this new Big Encilada Tim McGraw follows suit.
Do you figure this to be symptomatic of the homogenization
of the population via mass-media or what ?
Spike Lee ( coz?) does a bit ina movie where the old dudes
hanging on the corner berate the Rapsters for their "craft"
Suspicions here that something is a foot..........and it's bad
11-27-01, 04:42 AM
You Must Have me confused, im no McGhee??
11-27-01, 08:40 AM
of course only metaphorically bjl !
once you've heard Janis J sing the song
it's always between the ears !
and I aspire to speak "cockney" dialect too ! LOL !
11-27-01, 02:47 PM
LordDeLaWar, there you name a great mucisian.:)
Janis Joplin, yes, that is good, good music. You are referring to her song 'Me and Bobby McGee' here. Just to make it a little clearer to Bobby Lee.
Guess you know Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel also then???
You say you prefer to speak Cockney... ;)
Bobby Lee, have you been listening to the c.d. of Toni Braxton already?
Let me know if it is good to you please.:)
Talk to you later...
11-27-01, 07:50 PM
Janis lived the life and paid the price....sad tragedy her's.
Now one of my favorite bunch of Scots musicians
The Tannahill Weavers reside in your country
and have told me it is the most civilized place
on Earth ! Could that be so ?
Europeans always seem so much more eclectic
than Americans..I have seen Juke-Boxes in the
UK that seem to have never been changed since ELVIS !
( save the addition of current hits )
Bye the bye
The Delaware Destroyers
w/ George Thorogood are from nearby here
and currently more popular abroad than USA way !
go figure !
11-28-01, 06:39 PM
LordDeLaWar, the Netherlands is a real 'paradise' if you compare it with the U.S.
No stupid laws and rules, much more freedom there and nobody can come look at what you have been doing at your p.c. if they have the idea you did something wrong. (illegal in the police's eyes, Law)
That is a lot different then in the U.S. where the police checks everybody out and have the right all of a sudden to search your car if they have a lightly suspicion of smoking some good Marijuana.
All legal in the Netherlands. Which doesn't count for alcohol. If they stop you in the Netherlands, most of the time they check if you have not been drinking. If you have been drinking, they take away your drivers license for some time. And of course they check your drivers license and roadtaxeses and if you have an automobile insurance.
Guess the police in the Netherlands is much more friendly also.
But this is real off-topic.:)
So let's continue with Bobby Lee's thread about Mucians. Ok?
The Janis Joplin story I know very well, just like Jimi Hendrix. They were around at the same time and had both a rotten death...Real sad...For these 2 are great Mucians and their Music lives on.
Bobby Lee, what do you think about Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix?:)
Do you have some other Mucians you want to tell about?
I really like the stories you tell about the Mucians.;)
11-29-01, 08:47 PM
Jimmy Hendrix was a music icon, unfortunately he had a "Monkey" on his back called heroin.
His upside down guitar playing is still considered to be tops.
He came along in a period of civil reform.
Jimmy gets a 10, on the scale of 1-10 on the artist scale.
With songs like "Purple Haze" and "Hey Joe" he contributed to the 60's revolution.......get it, listen to it, enjoy.......
11-29-01, 08:54 PM
Janis Joplin has no match, of course no original artist does. Its their own stuff.
With the last album she made "PEARL" she sold kazillions of copys.(Thats a lot...lol)
Songs like "Me and Bobby McGee" and so many others she is still a music icon to this day.
As others, she had a hard time with fame, a "Monkey on her back, and a set of personal issues from childhood. It made for a passionate singer unmatched, but it was a lethal combination.
Here is to "PEARL"
11-29-01, 09:02 PM
Britney Spears still kickin it on the charts, she's doin it again.
With the looks and Charisma, and a state of art sound system, we should be seeing her staying power for along time.
"Do It Again"
Britney in my opinion has the hearts of millions, and what a woman she's turned out to be...........PURRRR!!
I say she deserves her spot.
Good job Babe...........
11-29-01, 09:08 PM
News wire reports;
Rebba's music still holding a market!
Rebba is a "Star", she is a dynamic multitalented woman who knows how to get what she wants and needs.
She has her own sitcom, and a music career. What a combo!
With the personality and Charisma that put her where she's at, we should be see alot more of Rebba in the future..
Not only that, she's a native Oklahoma girl, that gets her a big applause in my book, of course Im a little biased...lol
11-29-01, 09:19 PM
New wires international critiques dis Paul McCartney and Mick Jagger as well as many other Classic Pop-Rock artists!
This may all be fine and good if your a young pup doin it for the money! Did the critiques ever stop to think that after 50million dollars or so that these artist do for the ART??
They dont have to compete anymore to pay major label overhead and costs.
WHERE HAS THE BRAIN OF THE CRITIQUES GONE?
On a competitive level, none could rival the Stone on a live performance level. Anyone commenting on this hasnt been to a concert of Micks and the Stones, if they had...well?
Paul McCartney doesnt need the approval of the snip noses, and neither does Mick, they are doing it because they are real artists who enjoys what they do best!
Getting a message to a audiance, and doing like no one else can.
If you ever saw them live you would go back again and again....
False reports say they are slipping in the market.
Read their there portfolio and "EAT CROW!"

11-29-01, 09:25 PM
music news wires report;
Jennifer Lopez get nomination for music awards.
Ill say it again, she has the looks and the staying power of true star quality! She came from the bottom, and refuses to be kicked back down. I give the girl a A+ for these admirable qualities that have earned her the rights of being where she is...you go girl!
11-29-01, 09:31 PM
Travis was a heating and airconditioning man before he got his break in the music business. There was some concern by top exec's that there would be no stay power in the market for him.
Guess they missed that one. I've been watching and following Travis from afar for sometime now. Its my opinion that he is a professional with the passion in his heart to remain on top for along time in the music industry.
I saw some years ago a video he did with the members from the "EAGLES!" It was a remarkable performance that I wont forget. Since he has continued to maintain decent revenues and hold his own in the hardest occupation there is, POPULARITY!
Good job Bubba........

mvj news wire report,
Kidd Rock, Rocks!!
I saw Kidd Rock on MTV not long ago, dressed in the "RED, WHITE, and BLUE", with a "Uncle Sam" dress, and a show to match the big guns too..
I watched him as he performed the show for thousands on network and live.
He is a professional in his own right, as far as I'm concerned.
I was impressed with his stag demeaner, and it was very well orchestrated.
Kidd Rock get a A on my list for that one! Keep it kickin!!
Bobby James Lee
11-29-01, 09:53 PM
There are so many artist worth mentioning that I must acknowledge their contributions, so here is to the ones I've not mentioned. Thank you so much for your contributions to the Industry. I'm sorry I missed so many in this short dissertation! However, I'll get to ya soon.......promise!
New Asian Performer Coming, and rumor has it, its gonna be good! Stay tuned...........
Bobby James Lee
11-30-01, 12:55 PM
Well Bobby Lee, that are a nice couple of Mucians you mention there. :)
Jimi Hendrix I have on c.d., what do you think. I am his best fan, since the day I heard his Music for the first time. I was around 9 years old then, so go figure out. I was an early bird what Music concerns, but my parents kept me away from buying certain Music, for they didn't like it at all.
Same goes for Janis Joplin, though I don't have her on c.d.
It is a real pity these Mucians died in such a rotten way. I really feel sad about that. But that is another story.
Travis and Creed are good Music, oh yes. I know them very well.:) Good Music....
The Rolling Stones I have seen performing live...,Great show, I love them. But you are right in saying that they are around and still kicking for such long time now, that they are like an Icon in Music land. Same goes for Paul McCartney, heard him on the radio yesterday with Wings, 'Band on the Run'...
I am sorry to say so, but I really don't like Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez. They have the looks alright, but do not have the right Music for me.
Hope I don't upset you by saying so. It is just another opinion. No critic on you or what so ever.:)
You have great stories to tell about the Mucians.
Will you please go on doing so. It is real nice to read it all.
Talk to you later.
Have a nice day.
12-02-01, 09:32 AM
Thank you, Im going to be gone for a bit. That is on the net!
I will however be back on soon.
12-02-01, 03:22 PM
Then have a nice time Bobby Lee and enjoy yourself.
Talk to you some later.
Tell me another story then. Ok?
Have a nice trip on the net.;)
See you later...
12-04-01, 03:46 AM
LeAnn Rimes decides to drop suit she had against her first label(Record) with when she was 12. She has resigned.
A good choice if ask me, I think....lol
She's a great gal and a good performer. My hat goes off to LeAnn...:)
12-04-01, 04:23 AM
I have been watching Faith Hills career for some time now, and I am impressed with her talent as a performer and song writer. She's a good person, wife and Mother. If that's not a hand full, she tours with a band and plays music for the multitudes the rest of the time....
Keep up the good work .............
12-04-01, 03:10 PM
Bobby Lee, there you mention two very good Artists.
Really like them both and you are right, great performers both of them.;)
You know the Alan Parsons Project? The album 'I Robot'?
If you have the chance and if you want to, please listen to it.
Great Music, not only that album, but nearly all the albums are wonderful Music.
Don't know a thing about the story behind the Alan Parsons Project, but I will go and try to find some information at the Internet.
Rather silly of me not to know a thing behind it, for I have the Music for more then 20 years...:p
The Alan Parsons Project works with a lot of different Artists who sing on the albums, that is all I can tell you.
Talk to you later.
Tell me more stories, I really like it to read them.
Thank you for that.:)
12-08-01, 03:25 AM
James Hendrix died on this date in 1970 if Im not mistaken..
12-08-01, 02:00 PM
Bobby Lee, Jimi Hendrix died in November 1970.:)
Guess you are confusing him with John Lennon.
John Lennon got shot on this day in 1980, Dec. 8...
A ridiculous human came by and did his pathetic deed. To monstrous for words...
His Music lives on...Forever...
12-08-01, 08:13 PM
Pink is the next Madonna, definately not Britney Spears. Don't ask me why, I just think so. That new album of hers is a total new thing than her last. Yet enough of this. Pink isn't of much value, as are most of today's new musicians. I'm not counting on bands, either. Excluding Radiohead, they all tend to get a little too blearyheaded and predictable. I'm counting on singer-songwriters, Alicia Keys, David Gray, Jill Scott etc.
Wow, I haven't posted for awhile. How stupid I must sound. Anyone take a look at 'Foursquare Centres'? What was that I wrote? I really don't know. Nor do I care to. You try to make your own sense of it, cause I'm not even going to attempt it.
So, it turns out Heinz is the thickest afer all. Followed by Hunt's, Disney World official. How about a thread for rebuilding the WTC? I think I'll do that.
Sorry, anyone in this thread. I have just used you for my personal thoughts. And did you hear....
The next Michael Jackson video will cost 64 MILLION dollars? And it's directed jointly by Steven Speilberg, George Lucas, and Francis Ford Coppolla. Not that anyone cares, but i thought I'd share taht as a ridiculous notion for today, December 8th. Rainy and Cold.
12-09-01, 09:17 AM
To each his, or her own man...
Makes since to me........
12-09-01, 01:50 PM
Bobby Lee you are very right.:)
Everybody has his/her own favorite Musicians.
There is so much going on in Music land now a days and there are good Mucisians and worse Mucisians among them.
I prefer the older Music, but there are a few good ones who are not that old and make good Music these day's.
Like The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Aerosmith.
Older Musicians, but still making the same good Rock 'n Roll...;)
And then there is one new Musician who I think makes good Music: MUSE...wonderful, great Artist...
Do you have some more stories to tell about Musicians?
Love to read them...
12-09-01, 08:24 PM
You seem to be very well versed in Music history for the "Modern Man, or Woman?"
Why dont you take the lead for awhile on the artical writing?
I like your opinins just fine myself.
Ive been listening to the new billboard artists, there are some very good performers out there. So many infact, its hard to write about any without leaving someone out!
In my opinion, the music and entertainment biz isnt based on how good you are. Lots of other factors are involved!
12-10-01, 04:42 PM
Janet Jackson has established for a longtime that she is a stand alone act that can rival the best of them.
She has had some personal things that have delayed her limelight, but guess what?
Tickets are available for her new tour........go, go, go man, its a show you'll never forget!

12-10-01, 10:22 PM
The Eagles, Carly Simon, Carole King, Reo Speedwagon, James Taylor, All Motown Artists, Aerosmith, Led Zepplin, Styx, Foriener, All CMT artist have hit a market for sales.
Sony and Bmg have been seeing a rise in remaster and release of older material.
New artist also have been doing remakes.
On the Top ten scene, "Creed" is doing very well in the market sales. Ticket sales are up and it looks like we picked a winner again.
More to come.....
Michael D. Venable
12-11-01, 11:23 AM
Yeah...Styx is very good.
Bobby Lee, all the Artists you mention, I have mentioned at the Topic 'Favorite Band and Mucians' in the Free Thoughts Forum. ;)
And I do agree with you that there is a lot of good Music to be found now a days.
Go see Janet Jackson, great performer...
As far as the Music you love goes...That is different for every one I guess. But I give my opinion about what I love.:)
Have you heard about Roger Waters giving Concerts in the U.K. and the Netherlands? That will be great...
12-15-01, 04:55 AM
Pink Floyd Rules....
How about the Band Sweet?
Lets not forget Eric Clapton(Clapp)
and 10cc's hit........ "Im not In Love?"
12-15-01, 01:37 PM
Yes, Pink Floyd rules. Always...
But I love Eric Clapton also really much. Have albums by him, what do you think?:)
As far as 10CC concerns, I love some songs made by them when they were in the old formation. When they split up it became less good then before and it was a little good I think in the old formation.
I love the song 'I am not in love...' - Great song. And there was one I forgot the name of, but Lol Cream sung it not Eric Stewart who does 'Iam not in love...'
Do you know which one I mean Bobby Lee? It was a big hit back then. 'Carol' or something like that. A girls name any way.
Good to hear you love such great Music.;)
(hear P.Floyd at the radio now, while I am typing...great!)
12-16-01, 04:53 AM
Ill have to go back to that one, as soon as I can find the Album? I know that Layla was a hit, but I didnt think Cream Did it when Clapton was with them. I could be wrong. These bands are a generation ahead of me. The White Room by Cream was a good one, and many others.
I did hear some Gordon Lightfoot today, Lay Down Sally, and The Edmond Fitzgerald. I kinda like the ballad stuff.
I also heard one that I use to listen to by Pure Prairie League "Amy"..
Do you dig the Eagles?
gotta go for now....
Ill get back to ya on the Cream stuff, I think.......lol
I still like the Beatles White Albums songs, not all of them, but alot of them? "Day In A Life!"
How about Paul Revere and the Raiders, "Stepping Stone", and "Kicks?" I think the Monkeys did one of these also??

Tomarro I'll get back to the top Billboard tunes for the recent artists. We just needed to mention those that came before us!
"The Cars Greatest Hits"

There you name some great Musicians. :)
Totally forgot to mention Gary Moore and the Eagles. Great Music. You know 'Still Got The Blues' by Gary Moore, for instance? Great song, great guitar...download it...you can find it at the Internet and download it at your computer. My son has it and plays it every day.;)
I was referring to 10CC with that song called 'Carol' or something. One of the members of 10CC is called Lol Cream.
The band Cream is something completely different, with Eric Clapton in the leadrow, wonderful, as everything made by Eric Clapton.:) In Cream and as a solo Artist.
And I remember The Sweet yes, even got a little single-record by them. Wasn' t that fond of them, some songs yes...
Heart I love...good Music you have found again Bobby Lee...great.
Go on please, I remember more and more as soon as you mention them.;) Forget the half of the great Musicians I love, to mention most of the time...Love so much Music...

Here's a line from a Eagles tune "Hotel California!"
quote, "Some Dance To Remember, An Some Dance To Forget!"
How about you Banshee?
Ill write more later.....

You can check out any time you want, but you can never leave...:)
By the way, that song by 10CC is called 'Donna', I remembered it all of a sudden, yesterday evening.
What about Lou Reed, heard him on the radio last night with 'Walk On The Wildside'. Love that song, but prefer 'Sweet Jane' and then the 'live' version. Great guitar in that one...;)
I forget a lot of the great Mucians and then all of a sudden I hear them on the radio. Real great to hear.
What about U2? You don't like them?
12-25-01, 07:33 PM
U2 is a great band......I like them alot.
12-26-01, 04:19 PM
Yeah...I have been to a concert by U2 last July 31st.
Man, what Music and what a show. Wonderful. When they came up to start the concert, the base was rolling through the floor, right into your body.:)
Great, I just want to go another time, and again and again. great Music, great Artists and a great show.
I know U2 from their start. Have seen them play several times and it stays great.;)
What about INXS? Do you know about them? They have made some nice Music. But the leadsinger died and the Band is no more. A real pity, for they made such nice Music...
Just got The Doors album: 'Greatest hits' for christmas. Great Music...70 minutes non stop Thje Doors...wonderful.:)
And the c.d. 'A Momentary Lapse Of Reason' by Pink Floyd. Guess I don't have to say anything about that one. Oh, so wonderful...:cool:

Zwan...A quality group
01-02-02, 11:18 AM
Fathoms, I tried to listen to Zwan. Can't download it.
Can you tell me what kind of Music it is? I can read most of it and am curious how it sounds.:)
Talk to you later...
01-02-02, 07:17 PM
Go out and buy the CD 'Agaetis Byrjun'!
When I first heard it I cried.
I don't know exactly how big this band is in Europe, but in the US, they've got no public profile at all, and you really have to look for the album. But in Europe, I don't know, maybe they're already huge.

I dont Know either?

Zwan are a recently formed group (somewhere in mid 2001). They consist of indie rockers David Pajo (Slint, Papa M), Matthew Sweeny (Chavez), Ex-Smashing Pumpkins Frontman Billy Corgan and Drummer Jimmy Chamberlin. The Influences of the group include the Doors, The Rolling Stones, U2, Pink Floyd, New Order, R.E.M, Blues Music alltogether, Bob Dylan, and the members former groups (similarities are unavoidable)... The music is very multi-dimensional, spanning from 9 minute Doors like rock epics (like Jesus I) to uplifting dream rock (Glorious). Because the band is still a work in progress, there is plenty of room for experimentation. As far as I know they have four seperate incarnations (Zwan, The True Poets of Zwan, Djali Zwan, Zwan?). Each with distinctively different sounds, different melodies, lyrical styles. I think its safe to say at this point though that a great deal of the music is either very relaxed with a timeless feel to it, or cosnsists of upbeat love anthems with depth. They are a very intimate band.
Because frontman Billy is a workaholic 80+ songs have already been cemented but only 40 have been performed live at the six small club shows they have played so far. Despite the unfinished lyrics, minimal rehearsal time and vocal limitations (that haven't seemed to be a problem thus far) I can really see this band being a positive and refreshing addition to anyones musical collection. First album details haven't been released. Though I do believe recording begins early Febuary.
Websites: www.zwanmusic.net (most of The emerson lake show is available to listen too under the 'songs' section though there have been problems.
www.zwanmusic.com (official one, though not very useful at this point)
There does seem to be a little bit of a buzz around Sigor Ros around here even though they are about as far away from mainstream as is possible. 'Agaetis Byrjun' is very refreshing and enjoyable to listen to, especially late at night because it just has those kind of ambient/chamber dynamics that make it so. Its' great not understanding anything about them, or the words that are sung on the album. It keeps them mysterious and interesting, open for interpretation.
Another album I would reccomend to everyone is New Order's 'Get Ready'. It's excellent.

At the moment,
Lucinda Williams, Shawn Colvin, Nanci Griffith, Lucy Kaplansky, Julie Miller, Bob Dylan, Dar Williams, Shawn Mullins, Sarah Harmer, Tori Amos.

Thank you for the information. I know the Smashing Pumpkins.
I certainly go listen a little to Zwan.:) It sounds great, like you describe it. My kind of Music.
New Order has great songs also. But I am not that familiar with New Order. I know some of their work and that was good Music...oh yes.
Thank you so much.;) You'll hear what I think about Zwan.
Talk to you later...:)
Hey banshee, how ya doin?
If you haven't alrerady done so, Leave the house now! if you have no spare cash, busk, or mug somebody. If it's late go to an all night music store or break down the doors and find an album called
UNDER THE PINK
By the goddess
When you get it home, Dim the lights, put your headphones on, smoke a joint and close your eyes.... Then listen, at least five times.
You will never forget the moment.
That goes for the rest of you guys....
Are you still here?
Trust me... I'm BRITISH!!
01-15-02, 12:06 PM
Thank you for the tip. I'll listen to Tori Amos. Sounds good the way you describe it. Good advice with it too.;)
Zwan IS good too, listen to it. Just klick on the link given by Fathoms.
Oh, I love Music. Go on people, more Music stories and favorites please.
Does anybody of you know the Music by Muse...?:cool:

In my opinion the music market is a little stale, excluding some ovious hits of course. I think the scene is changing and not everyone who is hip now will make the transition. It happens to the best.......
