    There will be awful music till the end of time. Case in point, Kajagoogoo. Or Joni's 80s albums (Although My Secret Place is a decent song).

    Too Shy had one of the coolest intros and bass lines of the decade, and was played by a great player (Nick Beggs) using a great instrument (Wal Pro IIe).

    You know what I hated about the 80s? That stupid keyboard/chimes patch that set the stage for a hundred sappy ballads sung by Kenny Loggins or the like

    You can find the sound on Eddie Rabbitt and Crystal Gayle's duo Just You And I

    I saw RHCP and Fishbone a few times when I was living in CA in the early 90s and they were great shows. I lost interest when AK tried to actually sing. Homie is not good.

    Love these old stories like this one from Skunk Baxter.

    But before he began playing with the aforementioned artists, Baxter was employed by Jimmy's Music Shop in New York City where he modified guitars. And while recently being interviewed on 955KLOS by Matt Pinfield, he recalled one memorable day when a pre-fame Jimi Hendrix walked into the store (transcribed by Ultimate Guitar)

    "He had a band called Jimmy James and the Blue Flames, and came into the store and had a guitar. A kind of beat-up old Fender Duo-Sonic, and he wanted to get something nicer. And I was repairing guitars and doing a bunch of guitar work."

    Then, a trade occurred that would ultimately get Baxter in hot water with his boss.

    "I had just set up a right-handed guitar for left-handed players, and the guy never came in and bought it. So, I traded it even. Seemed like a nice guy. Frank Squillaci [his boss] got real mad, and he said, 'I'm docking you three weeks' pay for that because it's not a great deal.'"

    Then, Baxter received an invitation from Hendrix.

    "He invited me to come down to the club and hang out, and then the bass player didn't show up for one gig, so I was there."

    As a result, Baxter jammed on stage with Hendrix that night and, as a bonus, met another notable musician.

    "Randy California was there in the band, and Randy and I became very close friends." California would go on to co-form the rock group Spirit.

    mine too, although there is something rather captivating about Vanessa Mae and how she weaves the violin into this one...

    There would be something rather captivating about her putting sunflower seeds in the bird feeder, programming the new remote, or any of a number of otherwise totally mundane tasks

    Weren't both Flea and Keidis in a scene in Point Break? They're like in a rival surfer/nazi gang or something?

    I have seen this video channel and avoided it but decided to give it a try. It is a clear advert for a drumming online class. They have the same thing for guitarist. The show is to take a drummer from one genre and play them something from a completely different genre and ask them to play the new song they heard.

    Still listening. But right at the very beginning, he easily nails a Nirvana drum part to Lithium. I watched here and not on YT so I missed all the misinformed comments from teenagers about how it was "missing something"... intangibles they cannot identify are irrelevant

    There are now quite a few great videos from the drum companies that feature great talent. That's how I found JDBeck and Domi. You don't usually get to hear that kind of talent in a friend band setting (that woikd be most of 'em), but you can count on the trade publications and instrument manufacturers to separate the wheat from the chaff.

    I wish I'd done that decades ago. Piano is really the basis of all composition, but that doesn't give you the band experience you need to contribute to something larger than yourself. I wanted atbthat time to be a drummer. I still wish there was time and promotion of senior (over 21) corps.

    One of my regrets is that I could have seen them opening for REM but we were running late and we chose to smoke the weed we had in the parking lot instead of watching them.
