    Re: The Band

    A big Band fan. During the summer of '76 (I was 11) I saw my first three concerts. One was McCartney and Wings at the Forum. Another was KISS, Ted Nugent, Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band and Uriah Heep at Anaheim Stadium. The third was the Band at the Greek. The Band was the only group I wasn't familiar with. The person that took me (a cousin) was a metalhead. I assumed the Band must be a metal band, like KISS or Alice Cooper. Boy, was I wrong. They were great. In the years since, I tried to see them whenever they came to town. I saw Danko and Hudson twice (once with Gary Busey), once as the Band with four original members (supporting CSN), once as the Band with three originals (Richard had passed) and once when Garth, Rick and Levon played with Ringo's All-Starr Band. A truly unique collection of musical talent.

    Nice to see both you FunkyD and BobD like The Band.:D

    I never got to see them live, but I remember the day my older brother brought this album home and we played it constantly for couple of weeks.

    I used to have the MFSL vinyl edition, but now I only have the deluxe CD.

    Love The Band, love their sound. I personally would put the Last Waltz concert DVD up against any other Live DVD Concert. I absolutely love the sound and of course the guests such as Dylan,E.C.,Muddy,N.Young,Ringo. I could go on and on and it was also directed by my personal favorite director (Martin Scorsese).



    A couple of qoutes/thoughts from Eric Clapton re: The Band

    So it was when Eric Clapton heard The Bands Music from Big Pink. It was like all of a sudden he heard this record and said to himself, “Now this is what music should sound like.” For me personally– this has always been one of the most interesting moments in rock music history.

    So when he put Music from Big Pink on his record player he listened once and was mesemerized, he listened a second time and may have been slightly confused (the vibe of the album makes it sounds like in could have been made in 1868), he listened a third time and began to feel that spark that every artist feels when they have a creative rush– and by the fourth listen Cream was done.

    I've watched it at least half a dozen times over the years, but I don't own a copy.:peek

    Does this mean I'm excommunicated from the MetalPriest school of Rock?
