So right you are! I have a knack for running into rock stars and always employ this "non" method. So far I've met all by accident Joan Jett at Starbucks, the Bangles warming up at Rye Playland, Ted Nugent going back to meet Geddy and Alex, Dream Theater, Kings x among others...always be cool man!
NEW: The Fusion Syndicate CD which is another Billy Sherwood project (like The Prog Collective). Very interesting so far...not stunning but very much worth the effort.

Always the best approach. We used to get Lee Marvin in my old neighborhood market when he lived in my town. He was so laid back...almost always in grubby pants and a white T shirt. He'd come in for ciggies. We'd never let on that we knew who he was.

And many times I'd take care of Steve Baldwin in my other biz but that doesn't count because no one really cares about him, right?

I'm listening to Gretchen Goes To Nebraska on this wonderful day.

Our Daughter had us take a listen to them. Different and melodic.
Cool but the masks freak me out a little.

Has anyone heard the new Verticle Horizon single featuring that drum guy?!?

I heard part of it yesterday from a link on facebook. It's not a bad song, it sounds like a well done Vertical Horizon song. If you are a fan, you shouldn't be disappointed in the least.
For a first listen I really like it!
My treasure-hunt for decent melody (something that shouldn't be rare but is anyway,) landed me on a Tsukiko Amano vid not long ago:
"Ningyo" (Doll,) from the "Meg & Lion" disc.

First it scared the hell out of me (and the neighbors, presumably,) with a serious volume-jump, then pulled me in with some boilerplate bitchy-rock that's got... some brilliant, memorable melody. 'Sounds like she's got (or had,) a boyfriend who's at once controlling and indifferent, and she's a tad annoyed about it all. The world's gain? Good tune.

The translated lyrics are here if you're curious.

The odyssey continues...

I'm listening to Page and Plant's 1998 album " Walking Into Clarksdale". It is one I need to listen to more often.
Good stuff there, Smoker.
