    Asia (Official Thread)

    Re: Asia As a progressive rock fan, I felt obligated to like Asia when they first burst onto the scene in 1981. I saw them on their first tour at the Santa Monica Civic and got all their autographs on my copy of their debut album during an in-store appearance at Licorice Pizza. Even though the...

    Rolling Stones - Exile On Main Street (1972)

    Let's take a giant step back in time. I was walking by the cut-out bin in a department store when suddenly I noticed a copy of the Rolling Stones’ Exile On Main Street – a special double LP with a full set of trendy postcards packaged inside of a B & W collage comprising war-torn photos of...

    8 Track Flashback

    Yes, I remember the 1977 tour very well. I always thought it was six nights at the Forum, but it could have been seven. I went two nights at the Forum: the night Keith Moon showed up and sat in, and the final night (night 6 or 7). I also saw them the week before in San Diego. I was a bit of a...

    8 Track Flashback

    It was quite common back in the old days that either your deck or tapes got stolen. I remember in 1975, I was riding in a guy's van to the Long Beach Arena to see Led Zeppelin. I don't remember the guy's name (he was a friend of a friend), but I remember he was big. One of the other guys in...

    Ronnie James Dio (Official Tribute Thread)

    Re: Official Ronnie James Dio tribute thread Very sad to hear about RJD's passing... I saw him with Rainbow, Sabbath, H&H and as a solo artist, and he always delivered. I also got to shake his hand and drink a beer with him at the Troubadour bar back in the mid 80s. A true gentlemen, a...

    Censorship of music

    Yeah, I think some of the profanity in "gangsta rap" is a bit excessive. Seems like they do it to get a rise out of people, without actually saying anything. If there's a message, it's buried too deep... The other thing about "gangsta rap" that amuses me is how these millionaire rappers with...
