Oooh good choice.

We used to cover 'Do you like me' in a band I was in at college.





I'd have to say for me it's The Wildhearts. EVERYONE in the audience sings at one of their gigs, it's infectious.

The most underrated guitar player of all time: Mark Knopfler. Been to five of his concerts, and they have all been amazing. Telegraph Road and Brothers In Arms live..say no more.


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Obviously, you're exaggerating. Your timeline doesn't match the facts...

Punk scientists discover fourth chord
24-03-15

LEADING punk scientists have confirmed the existence of a fourth chord.

Punk scientists have been researching the possibility of an additional chord since the late 70s, but only in a haphazard DIY manner.

Researcher Mary Fisher at the #%&*$# Your Mum Punk Laboratory said: One of our team was frantically strumming while buzzing on amphetamines and he just kind of came across it.

If we had known about this chord forty years ago maybe we could have smashed the system.

Still, its better to take a while than to be too technical because then you end up with prog rock*.

She added: If there is a fourth then maybe there is a fifth or even a sixth, though sadly they will not be discovered in my lifetime.

* Speaking of prog rock and favorites... I can't say a single band is my favorite. I can only get that list down to three and one of those is Genesis (1970-1977 only.

Been awhile since I saw a VH Blue Angels video. I always liked the version when they were flying the A-4's the best.

Probably my favorite rock band as well. Repeater is certainly my favourite rock album (that or In On The Kill Taker). I've met and interviewed Ian. Nice guy. Highlight that day, though, was getting to watch them do their soundcheck.

I'm not a huge rock music fan, but I do love my Fugazi.



Merchandise is probably my favourite tune by them, with Waiting room a close second.

Pink Floyd and Queen are the only two that have a dozen or more songs I love and listen to all the time. So let's go with Pink Floyd since nobody has posted them yet.

Yeah I was given a Pink Floyd CD for my 15th birthday but didn't really begin to appreciate their work until recently and Great Gig in the Sky is just fantastic, easily my favorite of theirs as well.

You didn't discover them until you were 45? Turn in your Englishman card right this instant!!

I took my son to see the Australian Pink Floyd Show.

My duties as a father are complete. Unless the real PF tour again...

Well, the qualification is "favorite" as opposed to "best" so I don't need to qualify with a dissertation:
Rush. Fortunately, most people seem to know enough about them to love, hate, or be indifferent to their music so I won't have to explain anything that YouTube or WikiPedia can't tell you about them.

But since YouTube videos are the norm in these threads, let's see . . . here is Entre Nous live:

Jimmy Buffett hands down.

Over the years my musical tastes have changed, but have never grown tired of listening to his music. He really can't sing.
And not a good guitar player, but love his lyrics and songs. Plus he stacks the deck with a good band/performers.

Tons of great bands, but currently the one I had to have tickets to see in August is the Foo Fighters! I don't think there's a song they've done that I haven't liked.

Foghat, UFO and Nazareth always come to mind, but I'd have to say Genesis. But before your clip. Trespass through Seconds Out. And then There Were Three is only half Genesis. Every album after that was a complete sell-out. Albeit a very successful sell-out...

1973...



1977...



I saw a lot of concerts in the 70's. Genesis blew them all away (and that was at a time when I'd never even heard of them or their music!)
