I'm not so keen on their new stuff...sounds like they are trying to hard to relive the glory days. I prefer the pre-90215/pre-Trevor Rabin days.

(Scootie??? Oy...)

I'm excited because he's coming with me to the Jones Beach show in June ("Aerosmith" LOL). I'm trying to get him to listed to the songs on the set list.

I figure it could be the last...

It took a bit for me...but, they do have an appealing sound. I think it's about time for Aerosmith to retire. I never was a huge fan of the Toxic Twins, but the sound has changed too much for me. Kind of like Van Halen for me, loved the early years, liked the Hagar years too, now though...it's time is past.

Listening to Heart Shaped World by Chris Isaak , and watching Wild At Heart...drinking Absinthe. WOW!

Interesting! Did you do combine Isaak and Lynch on purpose? If not it is a synchronicity because David Lynch used Chris Isaak in his other film (the "Twin Peaks" prequel) from that same era. Isaak's music often has the same twangy/reverby guitar sounds that Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch both like to use.

And isn't "Wild at Heart" bizarre? It is quite a mishmash of silly and terrifying...classic Lynch!

It was a spur of the moment deal, where I saw the movie was about to come on...looked up Wicked Games on iTunes and downloaded the whole album. I had forgotten how much I liked Isaak's sound. Played lightly in the background while watching the movie is a nice addition, to myself anyhow. I never saw any "Twin Peaks", but I heard how bizarre it was. "Lost Highway" is ok to watch, but not as good to me as "Wild At Heart".Smile
Cool!
Isaak is a quality act. His recent album that pays homage to Sun Studios is good.

Sometime when you have 2 hours to kill, watch the pilot of Twin Peaks. You'll either waste two hours or become a huge fan.
My latest disc is Steven Wilson's "The Raven that Refused to Sing." This new disc is gathering lots of attention for very good reasons. It is progressive rock with one foot in yesterday and one foot in today. I cannot recommend it enough!
Listening to a few early Iron Maiden albums, and will finish off with Cynic(UK).
NWoBHM lost a great drummer today when Clive Burr passed on. Sad

I cannot say I would stay in the same room with you if IM was playing but I did recently buy some of the Cynic CDs (and the related bands) to check out their style. Interesting...
