    Judging by the peghead, he is playing it with only five strings, though... if we could just establish that it is in open G, we'd know for sure that it is him...

    I have not heard Roni Size since the early aughts

    I posted an old school hip hop video last week and YouTube suggested this gem from the late 80s. On a personal note, not matter how much credit or accolades they get, it will never be enough.

    I had heard of Can for decades but had never gotten around to listening to them until recently. So much I have missed.

    The La's. One perfect album that almost wasn't even finished.

    I've been thinking of Lee Mavers this week in light of Saint Shane MacGowan's obvious mental issues along with Lee's. These people give us so, so much. All we do is take. And so often genius is tied to such illness.

    Rainy sick day thoughts.

    Another one - Elliott Smith. Perfect for a rainy day though.

    It was more than dress up - more even than an alter ego. It was the creation of a persona with a fake history. I wasn't a fan of the music, but I loved the audaciousness of doing something like that, and he has my respect for trying. But I get why it didn't work. As is said in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, "Audiences know what to expect, and that is all they are prepared to believe in." -

    At least the album has a legacy.

    I’m surprised that there’s no mention of Queen.

    That stretch from 4-9 is pretty impressive. Billy Joel was never as popular as peak Elton John, but he did just fine.

    Metallica, Madonna, Springsteen, Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston can go.

    :) I never got onto any of those 6 either.
    A little at first with the young Houston and Carey. But their life choices left me cold.

    Most of those Beatles records sold in the US were pressed here, in a mostly-abandoned factory that's now a warehouse. I walk by it regularly on longer weekend walks. It's mostly a warehouse now, though (fittingly), the casket factory is still in operation.

    The only Roni I liked was from the Ronnettes. As in “Be my Baby.”
    Edited. :)

    Ronnettes?

    For decades I thought that line was just a strange part of an Eddie Money song...

    There's only five!

    What did Mariah Carey do? I heard Whitney had a street side.

    I'm with you--what little Krautrock I've already heard (a few Can tracks and very early Kraftwerk, mainly) hits my sweet spot so it's a surprise I haven't made more of an effort to get further into it.

    Perhaps it was just my perception. After she married her manager things changed and so did her music. I guess I moved on.

    Just heard a great anecdote about that song--apparently the fairly iconic, simple drum beat at the beginnning was the result of Hal Blaine dropping one drumstick just as they started recording. He did the best he could with one hand while leaning over to pick up the other, then realized that if he started playing the full pattern he'd intended to from that point on it would make the mistake at the beginning stand out, so he stuck with that simple pattern through the song.
