I don't necessarily like him. I think all during the show he was hiding a preference for a more cutting edge music.

Are you getting your email?

I guess I can see that. Compared to JD, at least. But he seems like such a phoney suck-up (not that he's alone, there). And he bobs his head the same way to every song, it's annoying.

And comon, like JD really feels the music, man.:-) You can see it in his little retarted hand convulsions.

The reason he seems phoney may be because he was playing 'em.

Watever. It's no big deal.

I know, but I'd like a guy who doesn't care, just acts himself, doesn't resort to playing the game they want him to. That guy probably wouldn't want to be on the show or in the band, anyway...

So I don't like any of them. Just on principle.

Oh yeah..."every junkie is setting sun..."

I found Marty in that I thought he might have hidden depths. I may be proved wrong. Neil has proved me right about him.

One day a long time ago I dropped acid and guy in the next apt. played "Helpless" about forty, fifty times in a row. The walls were paper thin. That was it for me and Neil Young...His whiney vocals are like chalk on a blackboard for me.

Are you sure he kept playing the song? Or were you merely stuck in one of those weird, reverberating trippin' moments...

(not that I'd know anything about this. Nope. Just what I've read in books. :-) I've also read that nitrous is a good way to ramp up that reverb.)

Minz: Yes nitrous is used like that. It's also known as whipits, 70s style. It'd be interesting to try DMT on an LSD trip, to send you off. :-)

Agree about Neil, Stephen.

OK, I know this is a Neil/music-DVD free zone but I just gotta say I've had Neil's "Freinds and Realtions - Live at Red Rocks" DVD on heavy rotation here at the ranch lately and it's fucking great.. Might even be good enough to convert some folks :-). With you about CSNY, though.

That's probably the best way to appreciate KB2. Donít pay too much attention.

CSNY is Crosby Still Nash and Young. I agree with Lucius, they were/are wusses. Neil is much better on his own.

Posted on Tuesday, September 27, 2005 - 07:21 am:   

Yeah, re KB2, I was rooting for Bill.. I forgot DEAD MAN. That's a good soundtrack. Someone just turned me on to Bettye LaVette, an old soul singer from Detroit, been around since Motown days...I Got My Own Hell To Raise is her new record. She covers songs by Lucinda Williams, Roseanne Cash, Sinead O'Connor, Joan Armtrading, et al. This is a woman with an Aretha quality voice and chops, but her own style. Amazing she hasn't really made it....

Just the two, but I intend to check out some others. What I hear is that her Motown album is awesome, but the company let it go out of print and hasn't resissued.

I was introduced to a new concept last night - the instant live CD. I saw Joseph Arthur, and within 5 minutes of the end of the show, he was selling live recordings of the show. I was willing to get one because I found his looping interesting. With just an acoustic guitar and effects pedals, he looped drum, guitar and synth-sounding guitar parts into a really full sound. I've seen looping before, but mostly from experimental guitarists, never from a singer/songwriter.

Yeah, the guitarist Elliot Sharp does instant CDs...and loops.

Quoted from Yahoo Avant-Prog group message posted by Steve from Wayside Music:

+QUOTE+
While you're at it, you might also consider trying to find the 3 CD Destroy
All Monsters collection that is out of print but rumored to be returning to
print soon. These very early recordings of DAM have alot in common with the
early Residents, with a heavy emphasis on multiple reel-to-reel experiments
and fractured electronics.
+END QUOTE+

Would this have been from your tenure with DAM?

There was no tenure, Bill. I played/sang with several bands back then, but nothing official. But yes, that was the time frame. I'm not listed on the collection, at least I wasn't on the last printing....but that's no guarantee I'm not on it.

All right. That whole Rock Star: INXS thing was a good laugh while it lasted, but now, THEY MUST BE STOPPED...

Page Six reports that my icon, my fantasy, the luscious Estella "Planet of the Apes" Warren spent time cooped up in the L.A. Park/Hyatt with her new beau, none other than "Brother J.D." Fortune himself...

Now I know why men start fires...

"Of 31 concert dates, which kicked off in Vancouver Wednesday, 27 sold out within two hours of going on sale. That show sold out in five minutes."

I can't believe this. Not only is rock and roll dead, but its corpse is diddling my former lady love!

"He debuted his bluegrass stylings in Fire Down Below, which I'm sure you saw."

Wasn't that his foray into adult videos?

I did enjoy his lobotomy of TLJ in Under Siege. One of Hollywood's more amusing antics was the bait and switch in "Executive Decision" wherein SS bites the dust a few minutes into the film. I chuckled over the imagined dismay of Segalites everywhere...
