Mind officially blown...

If you are a lover of virtuosity in music, you must see Zappa Plays Zappa if it comes through your town. Never been a big Zappa fan (I am now) but a buddy had an extra ticket. I knew the name Dweezil but i didn't know he could play for shit. I'll go on a limb right now and say that Dweezil Zappa is ...

Those that dont like the falsetto Jay may not want to listen. I thought it sounded alright, though I never thought Jay would cover The Beatles. Or at least have choosen a more obscure song. However the jingle is quite clever and works very well for the ad. Jay has covered the Beatles. Saw him do "L...

Haven't logged in for a while but for a new fan, anything. In no particular order: 1. Last Minute Shakedown (possibly the greatest song of all time) 2. Route 3. Hanging Blue Side 4. Left A Slide 5. Live Free Windfall and Tear Stained Eye are givens so they don't make the list. And allow me to ask, g...

I also got booted. I left everything i downloaded open for like 2 weeks and nobody was downloading from me. I don't know what the problem was. I felt guilty for not holding up my end, but dang, i tried my best. Getting booted is one of the worst things that's ever happened to me. I flew too close to...

Do you really think it's everyone else? No, I don't... just a vocal minority and people like you who seem to make inferences in my postings that aren't there or are simply determined to get offended, angry, or upset. There's the "who, me?" i was talking about. People must just be making the wrong i...

Although i've sworn off the board, i had to come back for to respond to this thread. TinyE, regardless of what it is you're saying, and i don't disagree with all of it, there is no doubt that you are a classic passive-aggressive antagonist who clearly revels in every minute of it. You're also very g...

Any ideas on where this came from, how it ended up on Amazon and if there's any more of it?

Anyone else wanna see the Meth or Beacon Soul if there is one?

What's happened in this thread is the reason this board had started to blow and blow hard. Just posted the thread to see what people think about Bruce and why they feel that way because i've always loved the guy. That's all. But every thread gets hijacked by a couple of guys who feel the need to com...

Springsteen

A lot of people on this board hate Bruce and I just don't get it. A lot of Bruce is the stuff of Jay - stuff about the downtrodden, disenfranchised, forgotten underbelly of middle America. The lyrics cut to the bone and he writes beautiful music. Anyone bother to pick up the Seeger Sessions? If that...

Just got back from vacation in the Dominican. Highly recommended. But i digress. I brought my laptop along so i'd be able to download The Search and listen to it on the beach, uninterrupted and unencumbered. I'll start by saying that I love everything Jay. But this album is not as good as Okemah. I ...
