  1. Another more recent(2005) favorite of mini is Wilco's Kicking Television Live In Chicago
  2. I love several of those mentioned, including the UFO REO, Head East, Live At Leeds, Pop Art, and Here And There. Also love Ramones Live and Springsteen's Live 1975-1985. But my all-time favorites are Cheap Trick At Budokan and U2 at Red Rocks.
  3. Sparks are still great. Loved their album a few years back with Franz Ferdinand, FFS.
  4. My top three would be be Roll With The Changes, Riding The Storm Out, and Someone Tonight( I always thought Someone Tonight sounded like a Raspberries song). Agree that the live album is great.
  5. A local band(Champaign, Il) I used to go see all the time, the Elvis Brothers, were approached about playing the New Monkees but turned it down. They did use one of theirs songs though.
  6. https://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/music/features/the-jaded-hearts-club-interview-matt-bellamy-b515732.html
  7. 5. International Geophysical Year
  8. Elton hit U.K. No. 1 on singles list for first time in 16 years. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2021/oct/15/elton-john-scores-first-no-1-single-in-16-years-ending-15-week-ed-sheeran-run
  9. Love They Don't Know, but I prefer the original by Kirsty MacColl.
  10. He was the best Weekend Update host ever.
  11. My favorite new artist to come along in the last 15 years or so. Gives me some hope(along with Inhaler, Bono's son's band) that rock will once again rule.
