  1. I too was there Friday evening...first time seeing Paul live. Hard to believe he's nearly 70. Sounded incredible. Looked great. Highlight was, for me, The Night Before. His band is absolutely amazing. A very memorable evening. And what about that full moon rising over the stage? A perfect night. Bob Allen
  2. I am (for better or worse) not easily impressed, but man - I sure was that night. When I think back about it -- seeing this band reunite after three decades -- it almost didn't seem real, or possible. But there they were. There we were. I think I pinched myself several dozen times that evening (and in several different places). It was a very special night. Bob Allen Syracuse NY
  3. This topic has been discussed ad nauseum. Anyone with 2 brain cells to rub together and even a shred of dignity understands that the RRHOF is for touristas only. Quite frankly, if I were a 'rock and roll' artist with some merit (ie, Alice Cooper), I would consider it a badge of honor to NOT be involved w/ that operation. If someone came up to me on the street and offered me $5,000 to tour the facility I would let them keep their money. I mean, honestly, ABBA's in the RRHOF and Alice Cooper isn't? That defies logic, not to mention the natural order of things. J Wenner is gross. PS -Alice Cooper was blazin' the other night. Still looks and sounds great. Plus, he's a very funny guy.
  4. Acid House Kings, Brookville, Justin Currie, Tahiti 80...now go do the right thing.
  5. Alice Cooper is a damned legend, pure and simple. Classic in every sense of the word. Rock and roll does not get any better than the stuff he put out 'back in the day.' His newer material t'aint half bad neither. (Love his version of 'Pretty Ballerina'; I'll be draggin' my 16 yr old daughter to see him in a coupla weeks...I'll tell him you said 'hi').

  6. Sadly, the Dolls of today are, alas, not the Dolls of yesteryear. (Happily, one cannot say the same about the Raspberries.)
  7. ...a sad, sad day. god rest his, er - I mean her - soul.
  8. "A bit thick then yourself ah?" Been peekin',eh?
  9. 'he's added on a good 100 lbs...' don't sound too good to me!
  10. Joe Pernice David Cassidy Burton Cummings (back in the day) Myles Goodwin
  11. No 'power pop' list is complete w/out Van Duren (not to mention Twilley's 'You Were So Warm').
  12. rolling stone don't know shit. you should all know that by now. triple ho y'all...gotta go track santa's arrival on norad.
  13. The thing I remember about CBGB was the fact that it smelled strongly of up chuck the minute upon entering. And the floor was really sticky. Rock and roll baby.
  14. I heard this the other day, it had been awhile, and I'd forgotten what a powerful song it was (is): Benny Mardones: "Into the Night" For reasons that are not within my grasp, Syracuse NY is, and has been for years, a 'hotbed' for Benny Mardones. He swings thru town twice a year (summer/X-mas) and plays to a few thousand people a pop. I haven't quite been able to figure it out, but there you go. Apparently he has some type of neurological 'condition' that causes him to shake, rattle and roll (if you will) on stage, but they say his voice is as strong as ever. He's gained a ton of weight and has grown a substantial pair of man-boobs to boot, which only adds to the mystery of it all.
  15. ...not to mention 'Go Back' - Crabby Appleton (a tune that's just beggin' to get covered by someone..perhaps the Jonas Brothers...)
  16. 'Summer Girl' was my top fave single during the summer of '74. Brings back many a memory (as all good summer singles do).
  17. where's my man craig rhunke 'fer godsakes?
  18. She's the best. Give 'Summerlong' a listen.
  19. 1. Wal Mart is just plain gross, all the way around. The ones in my neck of the woods make K-Mart seem like Neiman Marcus. 2. Re: the (alleged) 'singer' in AC DC. That voice has GOT to go. Sounds like a pig being slaughtered. Puts me in a bad mood (like whenever I see a PT Cruiser).
