I love rock (not the faggot shit that passes for rock nowadays, the real stuff), metal, outlaw and classic country. I am a classically trained musician. I play oboe, guitar, drums/percussion, piano and clarinet in order of competence. I love to rock the fuck out. 
what are you guys into?

That's so cool that you are a multi-instrumentalist. I've deeply loved music my entire life, but--sadly--have no training. One of my very few life regrets. I will admit some envy here. I have played a little clarinet (I own one). You would not be impressed with my musical talent.

 

As a child of the 1960's and 70's, I love the music of that era. So much great stuff. Bob Dylan is a particular favorite but OMG, so much great music. The Beatles, Stones Animals, Doors, Van Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Santana, and the Grateful Dead are among the favorites. But I could go on for pages. Unique era.

 

Like you, I am also a fan of classic (and "outlaw") country. In my case, as a rock and rolling city boy from Los Angeles, country music wasn't the necessarily the "obvious"choice, but I've always loved it. From older stuff like the Carter family and Hank Williams to more modern artists like Merle Haggard (RIP),  Johnny Cash (RIP), Willie Nelson, Patsy Cline...better stop, it is a very long list. I have a pretty deep classic country collection. I'm pretty ignorant about contemporary country pop.

 

I hooked my 15 year old son on Kitty Wells' "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" and familiarized him with the antecedent songs based on the same melody, from the Carter's "Dreaming Tonight of My Blue Eyes" to Roy Acuff's "Great Speckled Bird" and Hank Thompson's "Wild Side of Life." Improbably, my boy also picked up a taste (from me) for the late French chanteuse Edith Piaf.

 

In addition to pure country, I love a lot of country rock including Graham Parsons, The Flying Burrito Bros., The Byrds,. and Emmylou Harris melts my heart.  

 

I loved Bob Marley and got to see him in concert before most Americans knew who he was. Peter Tosh as well.

 

As I grew older and I became less attached to the current music (80's) I re-discovered great Be-bop era Jazz. Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Dexter Gordon among the faves. And I'd always loved Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald.

 

I love the great Egyptian diva, Om Kulthum (name transliterated variously). A truly great artist. She had greater fame in the Arab world in her day than any American artist has in our society today. When she died the region shut down and went into morning. I also enjoy Hindustani (Indian) classical music and have a large collection.

 

In recent years, I've gotten much more drawn into classical music, and especially romantic and late-romantic era music. I've come to really love the music of Anton Bruckner and Richard Wagner. And greats like Shubert, Schumann, Beethoven, Dvorak, and Mahler. Love both German and Italian opera. Wagner was a musical genius (if a repulse person in many ways). 

 

Perhaps you are sorry you asked. LOL.

 

Anyway, I love music. I feed my soul with great music. It moves me. Vital to my life.

 

My collection is vast and varied. But I can't play a lick. Very sad. LOL.

 

Bill

That’s all cool stuff! I like some classical music, too, from my orchestra days. I like a little punka, ska, and reggae if I’m in the right mood. Lots of oldies, too.

I got to see the Clash on their first American tour in a small venue (they were virtually unknown outside the subculture). Saw groups like The Dead Kennedys and X all the time when punk was first breaking. Rarely in the mood now.

You gotta build up callus on your fingertips, then it won’t hurt.

I used to play guitar but found that it really hurt my wrist. Sure that the pain would have went away over time but in my early 20's, I was too scatter brained to focus on that. 

 

Am about as big of a rock music fan as most will ever encounter. 200+ shows, 500+ albums on vinyl, 500 CD's, and about 2 TB of digital stuff. There is a time and place for almost every subgenre of rock music (Reggae being the exception)... at least for me there is. My favorites are 1. Simple Minds 2. Nine Inch Nails 3. Tool 4. Bauhaus and 5. Social Distortion. I can't really do it justice but a good intense rock song conjures up emotions in me that almost nothing else does. The only time that I am really outwardly expressive is at rock concerts.

It did not help me in elementary school. Being short, round, and having the name of a certain short, stout character on "Christmas Carol"

Well, thanks for the laugh. 

 

Back to the topic. One reason that I am not a fan of the lockdown is that live music comes to a screeching halt. Have tix to shows in Las Vegas and El Paso that as of yet have not been cancelled. Crossing my fingers.

Modern music is not all bad. However, like most humans we gravitate towards what we listened to in our youth. In my case, that was roughly 1986 to 2000. Most of the artists that I go out of my way to listen to were relevant during that time. My only issue with modern day music is it is frequently highly electronic and therefore the live product is nothing special.

I played in several bands when I was younger...and yes,  we were cool...and yes, I'm blowing my own horn.    😎

 

We played everything from Patsy Cline to Steely Dan...

 

 

Reelin' in the Years...we use to play all of this stuff, and a whole lot more.  I was blessed to be in a band with good musicians...I was kind of average-good, but I played my parts.  :)

 

 

It's obvious that the "studio version" of "Reelin' in the Years" was laid on top of this live video...

No holds barred chat

  • Hey kfools.. does this help? 


  • By Vegas

    Liberals are going to hell.


  • grgle



  • Where’s at @slideman?


  • Hola


  • I know this one, this new chat thing. I've seen it called the "shoutbox" among other things in my past. Very hard to hide from the chat box. The question is asked, there's no time to go search what other folks think, this is real time. Only seconds should be between chat box replies. This one is made for me. In the chat box one has to be quick on their feet with stuff at the ready. This chat box is the worst nightmare of anyone trying to deal with ol' teach. 


  • By pmurT

    hey @teacher that sounds like too much work for me LOL I need that useless thing called *time* in order to authenticate facts and truths which get posted by deceitful Dems


  • What does the red number refer to? currently, on my screen it says 2

     


  • Where does it say 2?


  • So. In the chat....if you tag a member the text afterwards should be a private message. 


  • How do? I'm teacher. If I'm online and the powers that be can figure out how to make it immediately apparent to me that whatever I've said here has been replied to I'm gonna show up right quick and kick some teeth in. It's the chat box, all this is new and scary. I know this gig. This starts now. 



  • Hey kfools, did you lose your securtiy cert? On my browser it is saying your site is not secure?


  • Mine too. I'm looking into it.


  • Mine too. 


  • I thought it was my location.. 


  • Just gave to renew the security cert. No big deal I'll do it tonight


  • OK thanks

     



  • Happy Anniversary, America... on your Civil Union.


  • All lives matter.


  • Double post deleted.


  • By teacher

    Scroll the other way for a while and you'll see me saying that these days the chat box ain't gonna work as one has to be quick on one's feet. The question is posed, there ain't no stinkin time for ya'll to refer to your betters for the answer, ya'll don't understand these things, this political debate, ya'll don't have the answer at hand, ya'll haven't thought this through, ya'll ain't ready for the next question I'll ask,  ya'll can't handle the pace that a bloke such as I can bring it in the chat box, ya'll can't handle this format.

     

    This one is made for me. 


  • By teacher

    Being offended does not make one correct. 


  • By teacher

    Some few days before the next election Mr. Fools is gonna pin my horse thread. it's gonna be horrible, I shall endevour every day to bring some some fresh. 

     

    I still own this cat box.


  • By teacher

    "I'm coming to you for ask a quick favor."


  • By teacher

    "Anyone that places a color in front of their name is racist." That one is not mine, got it from another member. 


  • Where’s all the hot bitches?

    Kidding me?
