    Rush -- I am right there with you. Cannot listen to 'em.

    Boston -- I am pretty much there with you; way overrated (at least by their fans). Tom Scholz put "their" first album together in his basement -- there wasnt even a band. Their (his) first album sounds horrible, too (unbearably bright and thin). Still, I was of an impressionable age, so the first album gets a pass ;)

    Queen -- a few great songs, and they get a pass for having a guitarist who 1) was pretty good and 2) went on to earn the PhD in astrophysics.

    When she picked me up, she nearly broke my spine.


    See....I thought she was one of those bigass Texas women, Ron.
    But, once I saw she had a bigger "member" than mine.....I was embarrased.
    Confused at that point.... I questioned this anomoly before me. To which she/he stated...."You bought me drinks, so I am returning the favor."
    Never...EVER....buy a woman from Texas a drink.
    She's more of a man than I'll ever be.
