    It was by far the best and he was without doubt the most-talented of the group.

    Have you ever seen him in an interview though? His laugh was so annoying!

    I also agree with you on the solo albums, Gene's was the worst, and why Cher put her voice in it? I will never understand...
    Thats an easy one Gene was putting the tool to her and bought her houses. She was no dummy follow the money.
    Yep the first albums were by for the best. I played the first alive album so much i think my needle punched right through and i was left with spaghetti on the floor. Geesh 1976 I was in 6th grade a looong way from going to those long haired concerts as my countryfied parents called them. I do not recall kiss ever coming close to Bloomington most likely Chicago was the closest but my parents were never going to spend any money on that i assure you.:)

    They are all butt-ugly mothers!! Take away Gene Simmons' and Paul Stanley's money and they'd be lucky get dogs to play with them if they had pork chops tied around their necks.

    I feel the need to confess that I am, as I type this, sitting here listening to Close to the Edge on the original vinyl I bought way back when.

    No, I changed records -- I didn't have the stamina to listen to the title track :p

    I would answer the question posed in the original post, but it would take me 3 or 4 hours to type it all out and I have a big Polk speaker to put back together.

    Jethro Tull ..
    I like a few but when I was going to buy "Songs from the wood" box set, I sampled it and turned green. Thank God I sampled a lot of those songs.

    I'll stick to my Jethro's greatest hits CD. It's actually pretty good!


    Also, The Boss.... I lost a neighbor because I dissed the Boss. I said yea he's cool but his lyrics are soooo Frikn repetitive, I question the songwriter's intelligence. Has anybody counted how many times the Boss says " Born in the USA "? in that song. Also my neighbor is a Hillary hater and who did the Boss team up with in 2016? I haven't brought that up yet. I might just let it die...
    Most people just listen to music and watch movies . I am glad to be a part of a select group that tries to take our auditory and visual senses to a higher level: we EXPERIENCE them.... GOT SDA?... Got TFM ?

    Agree about the Boss...musically of course.

    But you do make a very good point. A lot of artists nowadays will flaunt their political views in your face. I find that distracting and annoying...

    At Vegas this past December we watched Cirque du Soleil's "Beatles" - pure torture!!! At least it affirmed my indifference to the Beatles...

    I haven't bothered watching The Grammys since 1989 when Jethro Tull beat Metallica for Best Metal Album. :D

    Jethro Tull is no Metallica but they put on a great show. Had the pleasure of meeting when they came to town in the early 90's. I believe the steel monkey tour steel something tour....

    I liked Johnny Depp in a way. But after he mentioned assassinating a US president, one that's trying to better this Country, was over the top. Now I don't want to watch a single movie he stars in!
    He should've kept his Assinine Assassin thought to himself as far as I'm concerned. Sure, he can dislike the Pres. but these beheading and racist bull just takes it too far.

    Yeah I'm with ya. Not that I'm a grammy awards regular viewer, more like never, but last night's viewership was the lowest ever!!! Hmmm...wonder why???

    3 hours of a bunch of self-important egomaniacs kissing each others rear ends and telling each other how great they are - sprinkled with unfunny humor and for the most part horrible “musical” numbers.... what’s not to like?

    I never understood why these people seem to want to advertise their political views. I’ll never forget my uncle growing up - he was a plumber and an avid Clinton supporter. I once asked him why he never talked about politics outside the house. His response was genius - “why would I risk alienating half of my customers just to talk politics?” Besides he said, “there are far better things to talk about.”

    Amen
    Too much stuff to keep track of.
