    And, I suppose Blaze Foley would certainly enjoy some BBQ. (Take a couple minutes to appreciate this one. This is a truly great American song.)

      Quote about Foley from his friend Townes Van Zandt: "He's only gone crazy once. Decided to stay."

      Yep. But this is a freaking awesome song. He wrote some simply amazing songs: "If I Could Only Fly" is incredible.

    Townes:



    Someone once asked Townes why he wrote so many sad songs and he said, "I don't write sad songs I write hopeless songs."

    Musical preference, like any preference, is a very personal thing. Just like your choice of pet, spouse, car, and job. When I have the music rolling, I put my phone on a speaker and hit shuffle. I play anything from 1950s-2000s country, 80s-2000s rock, and the occasional pop or even R&B tune. My absolute favorite music is 50/50 80s-90s hairband rock and 90s-early 2000s country.

    The first guitar solo I ever learned was the one to Comfortably Numb. Although I'm not a huge Pink Floyd fan, it was a fav song of mine for a couple years as a teen, and so was On The Turning Away, and I love the guitar riff to You Better Run. My favorite band since I was a kid in the 80s through today was and is Def Leppard. I get teased a lot by my buddies though, they think DL only made one song and burnt out long ago (not true, still touring & making albums after 40yrs together). I always say "Hey, you don't have to like what I like, you don't have my ears, I do."

      Huskee I am also a big hair metal fan (Maybe I shouldn't admit that). Saw them all in concert back in the day. Still going to some of them. Just saw Tesla in concert a little over a month ago.

      And same as you, when hair metal died I gravitated toward country music. Still listen to artists like Clint Black, Brooks & Dunn, Sawyer Brown, Tracy Byrd, etc. etc.

    The older I get, the more I music I love. I can listen to almost anything now. I put up some sort of lonesome country because I saw some trends, but I could have put up '70s punk (I was a stage guard for The Ramones for one show), '60s psychedelic, '30s big band, '20s Chicago & New Orleans, boogie, blues, jazz, most pop music, Lady Gaga, whatever. It's all awesome. Mrs and I saw Steve Earle live about a year ago, we have tickets for Donny & Marie next month. I just love music!

    Sondheim wrote this with Glynis Johns in mind, while the show was still in rehearsals. He knew she didn't have a wide range, but he felt that the song would be better performed with her acting instincts rather than a singer's vocal instincts. He obviously knew what he was doing.

      I'm with you, brother. I listen to all genres, only two exceptions are opera and rap. That said, topping my list are blues, alt country, rock/pop, and classical.

    With Father's Day coming up I have to share this one. Guy Clark is by far my favourite singer/songwriter. I'm not ashamed to say I've cried my heart out listening to his songs. This is one of them. Whether you loved or hated your father, we all have a Randall Knife. There is something from our childhood that defines our relationship. Mine is his truck, a 1956 Ford F100. It was the first motor vehicle I rode in, and I still have it.

    That's my father standing next to it. The story goes he was 17 working in a grocery store after school. He wanted to purchase the truck, but because of his age he had to get his parents to co-sign the loan. My grandmother said to forget it, no way it was going to happen. So he went to my grandfather, who asked for some time to think about it. He came back with this offer, he would co-sign the loan on one condition, that if my father missed the first payment, or the last payment, he was to hand over the keys. My father asked for some time to think about it and went to his older sister and asked if he got into a spot if she would help him out. She said yes and my father told her to keep quiet about it. He went back to my grandfather and told him he agreed to the condition. My grandmother wanted to kill my grandfather, and my grandfather thought he'd be getting a truck half paid for. As it turned out my father never missed a payment and kept the truck all his life. We were his caretakers for the last four years, he was afflicted with Alzheimer's.

    Now, here is the song, Guy Clark, The Randall Knife:



    Bonus track, Watermelon Dream, what should be the official theme song of summer;

    If nobody else gonna pimp these guys, I'm stepping up. Just can't believe this was 40 years back.

    Wore that LP out. When it finally hit CD, there was much rejoicing.

      Olde and In the Way was the album we listened to my first Thanksgiving out of the house and away from family. Left an indelible mark on me. Grisman is such a virtuoso, probably seen him 10 times. Grisman-Garcia stuff is tight BBQ listening too-

    Here's a genre that doesn't get much love these days: 60s/70s blooz rock. I dug the heck out of it back then, though. My first concerts were Humble Pie, Savoy Brown, J Geils, etc etc etc.

    Nobody... NOBODY could do it like Steve Marriot. Here he is at the height of his power.

      I spent the summer of '76 wearing out a copy of 'Frampton Comes Alive'. Went to a show at Anaheim Stadium (where the California Angels play {sorry, I bleed Dodger blue and refuse to call them the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim]) where he opened for Yes.

      Back in '73 we saw an all-day concert: Black Oak Arkansas, J Geils Band, Frampton's Camel, and Humble Pie. Chester, West Virginia. The only problem was that it was outdoors, 90*, and there was no water and were no concessions. But J Geils were insanely awesome that day.

    And once there was a time when a bunch of lads could get together and write some songs and call themselves a band!

      One of my all time favorite performances on YouTube. Eric Kaz says this was one of the greatest moments of his career.

        According to his biography Fortunate Son, this was the first time Fogarty played "Born on the Bayou" since CCR broke up; the copyright belonged to Saul Zanz, and Fogarty refused to play any of the CCR music.

          Last one, thanks for letting me do a little DJing. This is the one you dream to. I could listen to Sergio Webb's glissando every second for the rest of my life.

          Opera can be hard because it not only is in a different language, it is from a different time and is performed in a different manner. Singers weren't amplified then, so they developed vocal techniques that allowed them to project great volumes without shouting; to today's ear, it isn't familiar so it is hard to connect with. I grew to like opera by first listening to Kiri Te Kanewa and Julia Migenes-Johnson sing jazz and pop, and then I became interested in what they sounded like in their own element.


          This is pretty riveting, it's not opera but a lieder by Franz Schubert. Schubert was like a rock star of the early 1800s: lived hard, died young, wrote amazing music.

            And on a completely different note (hehe), Stephanie Trick plays Pete Johnson's "Dive Bomber", and it really doesn't get any better than this! Bouncing piano, hot boogie, nothing like it.

            Here's probably the best cover of 'Stairway to Heaven', and considering the audience, it had to be spot on.



            By the reaction, I think it is safe to say it was.

            The Allman Brothers...Old Before My Time. "there is a long, hard road, that follows far behind me." I'm sure some here can relate. www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vYr1cD49aA......As a big fan of great lyrics, these seem to have a personal feel.

              "Dreams" and "Not My Cross to Bear" are big favorites of mine (along with just about everything else).
