  • The other night I got the live version of Mountain's 'Nantucket Sleighride' stuck in my head (from the Twin Peaks album recorded in Osaka). Don't mind it a bit.

              • Martin, that was different.

                Reminded me of a time I saw a band doing Smoke on the Water with an accordion, trumpet and drums.

                  You should see Hayseed Dixie doing a live cover of Black Sabbath's "War Pigs".

                  • Just found this! Read through and couldn't see any of the links below.

                    Lets start with this super cool video from one of my favourite bands 'Sigur Ros' - Glosoli. I've been listening to this album a heep lately.

                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr_MJAOyOeU

                    Favourite band of all time is Radiohead (going to see them in Auckland in a few days! Super excited!) My best albulm of this millennium is Kid A (closely followed by Peter Gabriel's scratch my back) Here's a video of 'There there' off their album Hail to the theif.

                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7AQSLozK7aA

                    Favourite voice - David Sylvian (followed by Peter Gabriel) Here's my favourite of his songs 'When poets dreamed of angels' (fantastic guitar!)

                    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gHjjisKxzs

                    And talking of guitar (yes - I play too (or at least used to) hard rock/ heavy metal and classical) here's a video of my favourite guitarist playing one of my favourite solos - Steve Vai 'I know you're here'. Check out the three neck guitar! Anyone who likes guitar should watch this! The guys insanely good - every trick in the book, but so melodic. I'm also a huge fan of David gilmour's playing (amoung many others). For a not so famous solo try the one about 5 1/2 minutes into 'Dogs' of Animals.

                      • I just spotted this thread and have enjoyed reading about everyones musical tastes. Very cool!

                        This is a bit off topic, but I know Rick and several others mentioned being fans of the Who. This is a really cool story--maybe some of you die hard fans have already heard it. In 1973, the Who were playing a show in San Francisco and Keith Moon had passed out while the show was going on because he'd downed a bunch of horse tranquilizers and booze. He finally collapsed one more time and had to be hauled off stage. Pete Townshend gets on the mic and asks if there's anybody in the audience that can play the drums. Up to the stage comes a 17 year old kid who sits down at the drum kit and jams with the band for a couple songs--he even got to take a bow with the rest of the band!

                        The 17 year kid was from Muscatine Iowa and I got a chance to interview him about the experience (I think it was about 10 years ago). Unfortunately, he passed away in 2008. Here's a link to a video of the entire incident. You can hear them finishing up "Won't Get Fooled Again" with no drums, then they go into the next song and you see the roadies hauling Moon away from the drum set, then at about 5:00 is where Townshend goes into the "can anybody play the drums?" part:

                        And here's a link to our interview:

                        http://www.2dorks.com/scot_halpin.html

                        There's a wikipedia entry about him and the incident, too. Rolling Stone Magazine named him the "Pick-Up Player of the Year."

                        • Bill,thanks for posting that.

                          I was familiar with that concert and didn't know about the back story that you provided.

                          Also didn't know you do a radio show.

                          The first time I was supposed to see The Who was either late 1975 or early 1976 at Madison Square Garden.

                          The concert date was postponed one night because Keith had gotten "sick" the night before after a show in Boston.

                          Just by coincidence The Who are playing The Garden tonight.

                          Might as well post a Who video while we're here.

                          • That was a very cool story Bill!

                            Wow could you imagine!

                              • Glad you guys liked that story.

                                Rick--yep, I've been a morning disc-jerky with my college buddy for 20+ years. We interviewed Kenny Jones years ago (he was awful). Dee Snider, Ted Nugent, Eddie Money, and Rob Halford are always fun interviews. But the best was Eddie Van Halen. I traded a radio friend some celebrity home numbers in exchange for Eddie's number. We called him on a whim real early (4:00 or 5:00 am his time)one morning. First he denied it was him, but then he opened up to us. We kept calling and he kept talking to us over the course of about 4 or 5 years. Then, we think one of our former producers posted the number on a VH forum. He got flooded with calls and changed all his numbers. Oh we'll. it was fun while it lasted!

                                We still have some clips on our website. Listen to the beginning of clip 1. Isn't that exactly how you'd picture Eddie Van Halen answering his phone:

                                Anyway, back to the subject at hand...I always thought this was a cool VH tune:
