  1. As I sit in my crappy cubicle at work, I once again am listening to "Man in the Box" by Alice in Chains.
  2. The Pogues - "Fairytale of New York" Ronsard39, that was a nice choice - I love The Band.
  3. As I was driving this morning I was listening to Elvis Costello sing, "And I would rather be anywhere else but here today," which pretty much summed up my feelings about going to work today.
  4. Freddie King - "Hide Away" This was one of the songs my old band used to cover.
  5. ZJ, is that the guy from The Band? Right now I'm listening to the Iguanas - Nuevo Boogaloo.
  6. Sonny Boy is a fine choice, although I like (and please keep in mind this is a personal preference, not a judgement) Little Walter more. Among the harp players I've seen live, my favorite is Junior Wells, followed by Rick Estrin of Little Charlie and the Nightcats and James Cotton.
  7. Zachary-Jean, you can't go wrong with Little Walter Jacobs. Muddy Waters sure could pick harp players.
  8. Elmore James - niiiiiiice, ZJ. I'm (unapologetically) going poppy this morning and listening to Fountains of Wayne's "Out-of-State Plates."
  9. Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band: 1975 Hammersmith Odeon Concert zlanger, you live in Plattsburgh? I was there about a month ago. My friend and I hit the Naked Turtle (everyone in the smaller bar knew us by the time we left), "appropriated" some "Kasprzak for Mayor" signs (we have a friend with the same name), and handed out cold ones to the staff at the Comfort Inn. Ahhh, good times...
  10. Ahhh, I see we have another Rick Jenerette fan in DonFu23! I hope you enjoyed watching the Canes lose on home ice as much as I did! To get back on topic, right now I'm listening to Jimi Hendrix, Live at the Fillmore East.

Don't get me wrong - I like what I've heard from them, but there are bigger fans of the band than me. di two, I can't speak for everyone, but I don't listen to rap. I'm not judging; if that's what you like, great, but I didn't like it when I first heard it over a quarter century ago, and the years haven't made it grow on me.
  12. The bassist in my old band was a huge Chili Pepper fan, and he was a blast to play with. You're right - Flea's a monster player. Right now, I'm listening to Joe Jackson's "Volume 4" which has two discs (one studio and one live) in it. Graham Maby's no Flea, but he shows that he can also play some serious bass lines on the live disc.
  13. Texas Tornados - Zone of our Own What can I say? I like Tejano rock 'n' roll.
  14. The Mars Volta - Francis the Mute To my old guy ears, it's kind of like Pink Floyd for the new millenium.
  15. Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers - Natural Boogie Blues the way it should be - raw, unpolished, and boogying. As Hound Dog himself said, "When I die, they'll say 'He couldn't play s*#t, but he sure made it sound good!'"
  16. stevefrombuffalo wrote: Oh yea, we totally can't tell your from Buffalo Hoser, I don't know if you were implying that I must like country and western if I'm from Buffalo, but I'm not much of a country fan (right now I have Megadeth, Los Lobos, and Howlin' Wolf in the player); however, Hank III is such an unpredictable, loose cannon that I really like him. When he goes on stage, you never know if he's going to do a set that his grandfather might have done or if he's going to be supported by A**jack, his Black Flag-influenced punk backing band. He's constantly railing against his record company (he once sold t-shirts on his website that graphically expressed his hatred for Curb Records) and modern country music in general - he's never boring. What can I say? The people I like the most tend to be "unconventional".
  17. The best of the Smithereens and the latest Hank Williams III CD, which has the following lyrics: Well, I was rollin' by myself, went down to Memphis, Tennessee And I was lookin' for a guy who had a mullet and no teeth And I was trippin' on some acid a Latino gave to me Hey, I was smokin' morphine 'til it knocked me off my feet Then I scored some "H" from my old Uncle Pete Now I'm startin' to feel like I might've ODed On an overdose of drugs, overdose of sin I'm gonna live it to the fullest like I'm on ten And I love gettin' high - hate bein' low And I like to drive my truck down a muddy dirt road
