  1. Even though I grew up in Illinois, Bobby Orr was my favorite player and I loved the Bruins(probably because they were on the TV game of the week a lot). Other players seemed to be going in slow motion compared to Orr.
  2. 1 Rockin' In The Free World-Neil Young 2 Share The Land-The Guess Who 3 Hallelujah-Leonard Cohen 4 Both Sides Now-Joni Mitchell 5 Stand Tall-Burton Cummings 6 Straight From The Heart-Bryan Adams 7 Let It Ride-BTO 8-Sweet Jane-Cowboy Junkies 9 Last American Exit-The Tragically Hip 10 One Week-Barenaked Ladies
  3. Always enjoyed P.J.'s work in Rolling Stone. He did as well as humanely possible to live up to the Gonzo standard established by the legendary Hunter S. Thompson at RS.
  4. Lamm was my favorite, especially for his songwriting. When I saw them in 1975 he was the only one I asked for an autograph. There's a really good biography of Kath on YouTube, produced by his daughter. The Terry Kath Experience.
  5. Albums 1 Tumbleweed Connection 2 Don't Shoot Me 3 Goodbye Yellow Brick Road 4 Captain Fantastic & The Brown Dirt Cowboy 5 Elton John
  6. 1 Burn Down The Mission 2 Tiny Dancer 3 Skyline Pigeon(Empty Sky version) 4 Your Song 5 Come Down In Time 6 High Flyin' Bird 7 Cage The Songbird 8 Funeral For A Friend/ Love Lies Bleeding 9 Empty Garden 10 Candle In The Wind
  7. Robert Lamm's plea for leadership sounds even more timely now than it did in 1975.
  8. 1 You're My Best Friend 2 Bohemian Rhapsody 3 Need Your Lovin' Tonight 4 Somebody To Love 5 39 6 Don't Stop Me Now 7 Under Pressure 8 It's Late 9 You And I 10 Another One Bites The Dust 11 Spread Your Wings 12 Killer Queen 13 I Want To Break Free 14 Seaside Rendezvous 15 Who Needs You

    Take Two

    Love this new cover of the Beatles Don't Let Me Down by Miles Kane
  10. And I can't leave this one out
  11. This is my No. 1. I could easily make an entire top ten consisting entirely of Cure songs.
  12. I actually think I first discovered his music in Dec. 2020, but I'll go with Sam Fender. My favorite new artist this century. First two albums have hit No. 1 in UK and he's nominated for 3 Brit awards this year. Huge Springsteen influence.
  13. Another more recent(2005) favorite of mini is Wilco's Kicking Television Live In Chicago
  14. 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.
  15. Sparks are still great. Loved their album a few years back with Franz Ferdinand, FFS.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.

  19. 5. International Geophysical Year
