Just a bit of homerism on the OP's list
I know what you are saying - but when i think of the all-time top five or ten, i look at influence, historical impact, critical acclaim, etc, and bands like the Beatles make it without hesitation. On the other hand, if I think of bands who get more play on my ipod, Deep Purple and Sabbath are definitely up there and there are actually a bunch of bands that would be in my rotation over the Beatles, including Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Pink Floyd, the Dead, Sabbath (but I would never argue that any of those bands belong in an all-time greatest list over the Beatles). There are some bands, like Led Zep and Pink Floyd, that would make any list i complied (all-time greatest, my personal favorites, best concerts, etc).
yep - throw in Pink Floyd and we probably have the top five
not sure what this means.
I think you missed the point
Do you know what would help our perception? kicking the shit out of Alabama next week
Im sure i missed more than a couple! (Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, James Brown, the Beach Boys, the whole Motown sound;, Simon and Garfunkel, all of the prog bands on the UK side)
I think that is correct on Fleetwood Mac
Good catch on the Band. I'll keep them as a North American band!
Saw Levon Helm sit in with the Allman Brothers at the Beacon a few years ago (year or two before he died) - it was great to see him.
I think that's right - its not a close call.
Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Yardbirds, the Who, Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Cream, Bowie, Sex Pistols, the Clash, Black Sabbath, Queen, Radiohead, The Cure, Elvis Costello, Deep Purple
Its not that the US hasnt had its moments (in addition to inventing rock n roll and the blues):
Bob Dylan, the Band, Allman Brothers, Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, CCR, the Doors, Alice Cooper, Ramones, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Aerosmith, Springsteen, Hendrix, Eagles, Guns n Roses, Van Halen, ZZ Top, Neil Young
I guess we get to split Fleetwood Mac!
so fave song and album have been done. The next obvious progression. Curious as to what you guys are listening to.
Love these threads (I started one of them!) - good way to kill time until the Sugar Bowl! next thread in the progression? best concerts you attended!
I have tickets to Jack White's show at MSG next month and I'm really looking forward to it.
Speaking of sucker punches - we will always have this one! (though the Boise state player was asking for it)
Here is some more:
I am sure your heart is in the right place but many unintended bad consequences will come out of this plan
Radiohead is so good in concert -- caught the OK Computer tour at Radio City Music Hall, which was one of the best shows ive ever seen. I try to catch them anytime they come around (missed Kid A, but saw the next three tours)
In no order (im doing ten):
Rolling Stones- You Cant always get what you want
Led Zeppelin: Kashmir
Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here
The Who -Wont get fooled again.
Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone
Bob Marley - No Woman, No Cry
Nirvana - Smells like Teen Spirit
Beatles - A Day in the Life
John Lennon - Imagine
Pearl Jam - Black
wait- did he just call Vonn Bell "uppity?!" That is an incredibly poor choice of words.
I did think his analysis of the Big 12 was pretty good (Oklahoma screwed the Big 12; not going to playoffs but going to shit bowl).
Gene Stallings was Alabama's head coach the last time the Crimson Tide faced Ohio State (a 24-17 Alabama Sugar Bowl victory),
Not Sugar Bowl - last game was the Citrus Bowl
Agreed, but I'm also talking about their game coverage, which is often very amateurish
BTN is still amateur hour, but its certainly improved over the last couple of years. I did enjoy the game replay of the Big Ten Championship, where they included replays with radio calls.
Michigan - I think basketball expectations are much higher there.
By the way, Incarnate Word is a football opponent for Baylor in a couple of years! Baylor really needs to make some scheduling changes if they want to be taken seriously!
