    Last In Line - "Landslide" (Official Music Video)

    Thanks for posting. Great guitar playing as one might expect from Viv away from DL. I also liked Vinny's 'less is more' drumming. A pity that the camera does not show the bass playing, as Phil Soussan gives them bite. I am not sure about the vocals, but they may grow on me yet.

    Dire Straits to Play Rock Hall Induction Without Mark Knopfler

    ^ None of the big earners live in the UK, because of the tax laws. He may have a home(s) here, in bricks and mortar, and may be here for a few weeks of the year, but that's all. From the government tax office (which is reliable). Notice the 'UK residence and tax' and 'Work out your residence...

    Lindsey Buckingham Leaves Fleetwood Mac, Mike Campbell Joins the Group

    I am a Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac fan first and foremost, but Buckingham Nicks (and Perfect) recreated the band with strength. Bob Welch kept the group going and without him there would probably not have been a Buckingham Nicks version of the band. His reward was a kick in the teeth. It had...

    Dire Straits to Play Rock Hall Induction Without Mark Knopfler

    Keyboard player Alan Clark did not notice David Knopfler's absence: "The final Straitsman who attended the ceremony, keyboardist Alan Clark, is a bit more laid-back about the whole situation. “A great time was had by all. Except Mark who, as you’re probably aware, stayed at home,” he wrote on...

    Dire Straits to Play Rock Hall Induction Without Mark Knopfler

    Perhaps for part of the journey, although my guess is that he does not live in the UK. In any case, I meant it figuratively.

    Michael Schenker Group (MSG)

    I could never get into the Bardens, Macauley, Bonnet versions of MSG (I haven't heard them with Leif Sundin). Macauley's voice does nothing for me, so I must be missing something. Kelly Keeling was a good match on The Unforgiven, recorded around the time of UFO's Covenant, and they should've...

    Tracks Opening With Drums: Led Zeppelin

    When the Levee Breaks has the better drumming and is the better track. It is probably my favourite Zeppelin track, but I am not really a fan.

    Tracks Opening With Drums: Deep Purple

    Ian Paice's drumming on Fireball is pretty powerful throughout, to the extent he drives a band of drivers. I voted for Fireball. In writing this reply, I wrote almost an essay extolling the virtues of Ian Paice, but thought better of it and deleted them. Suffice to say, he remains somewhat...
