Sounds great!

There is such a variety in guitarists nowadays...so many styles, techniques, and approaches.
The soundtrack from "Sound City". It's from the movie that Dave Grohl produced. It's about the recording studio in LA that still recorded using tape. VH1 classic has been showing. It has Stevie Nicks, Trent Reaznor and even Rick Springfield (His song was actually good). But the highlight was Paul McCartney - his song rocked. It's a must see movie.

That is an awesome doc! I've seen it a couple times, very compelling story, and YES a lot of the sounds & songs that were created through the famed Neve console are definitely classics in modern music history.

Of course, it was neat to see a certain up-and-coming producer cut his teeth in the music biz at that studio....I think we all appreciate his experience and talents, as evidenced by his more recent works...Rolleyes
The iPod is finishing up the final few songs for tomorrows 950 mile drive to Billings,MT. Been getting loonie lately with some hardcore stuff from groups like Dimmu Borgir, DevilDriver, Amon Amarth, Dark Funeral, and the most AWESOME Suicidal Tendencies!!!! All will be represented with many other genres of music...along with a certain trio. Big Grin
Vintage KingsX...Out of the Silent Planet and Gretchen Goes to Nebraska at the moment.

Soooooo tasty! Never understood why these guys couldn't gain any mainstream traction? We'd sprinkle "Summerland" and "Over my Head" amongst the more standard bar/club type covers and folks would be rockin' their brains out.
I wholeheartedly agree! I've been a fan ever since l first heard Summerland when it first came out. I'm glad they're still going after all these years.
Songs from the Lighthouse by Italian progressive rock band Moongarden. Good stuff!

Opera Sauvage by Vangelis. Moody and wonderful...a favorite from the olden days! (LOL!)

They played the Porterville, CA High School auditorium back in 1999. On one hand I felt the tour manager who booked that one should have been shot. It was a horrible venue, and it wasn't marketed at all. As a result only about 100 of us hard core fans showed up. But on the other hand I was also experiencing a fair bit of schadenfruede because it was like they were playing at our own private party.

Did a search and found some bootlegger posted a vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AS5xVjkyg9Y

Interesting! Kinda like a softer Dream Theater meets the phrygian mode...
Yes, that is a good analogy for Moongarden, Sunset.

And on the subject of relatively high-profile bands at high school auditoriums...I think that would make for an interesting article. I think all sorts of bands did that at one time or another, even well past the point where they were playing big venues. I saw Renaissance at my HS in 1975. I still am amazed we were able to pull that off. It was a GREAT SHOW!
