I can see this being a popular thread!

Can I make a personal appeal to people putting youtube vids up here to tell us what they are? Many people can't view youtube from work and it would be helpful for a one line description of what the vid is so we can know to come back and visit it later from home?

Think so too Davie. So far 3 excellent pieces and each a different style.

CGG,
The Radio Head song reminds of some of Morphine's stuff.

Noshank,
Forgot all about her. Super but a sad ending.

Doc,
Joe B. is getting better with age if that is possible.

Very Nice NST - a bit melancholic and somewhat hippy dippy, but nice all the same.

Reminds me of an old mate of mine who used to say his dream was to back Joan Baez at a festival and for the crowd to shout - 'shut up Joan, we want to hear Dave's guitar work!' Rolling Eyes

I however, have been mostly listening to the great Waylon Jennings interspersed with Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Kris Krostofferson.

I'm beginning to worry about your state of mind NST. It seems everyhting you are listening to at the moment is, how should I put it? Introverted maybe. Please do not put that Leonard Cohen album on, you know what it does to you.

Actually, I am not a jazz lover at all, however, I quite enjoyed that. I might have a listen to the rest.

Doc - I've heard that version before, Bonamassa is mighty on it, and Beth Hart is good as well. Looking at the comments below it, she was likened to Janice Joplin. Good she is, Janice Joplin she just ain't!

Post by Davie on Tue Dec 13, 2011 9:12 pm

Those who have heard me talk music on the beeb and other sites know I'm an old rocker

Favourite bands are Rush (hence the avatar that I've used on lots of sites over the years), Deep Purple (though I'm coming to the conclusion that it's only really Blackmore and Lord that I like in the band) and Blue Oyster Cult (saw them on their first headline tour in the UK more years ago than I care to remember - my first ever "big" gig). Kinda proud of the fact that I was into BOC before Don't Fear The Reaper (not one of their best IMO) - I was introduced to them through a hole in the wall record shop (remember them?) when they were pretty much unknown in the UK and their vinyl could only be got on import

My favourite band of the moment though are Dream Theater - again not very well known but possibly one of the most talented bunch of musicians I've ever heard - some consider them a little TOO perfect technically and they get accused of lacking some emotion in favour or technical perfection, but I don't buy that argument!

I also did an internet radio classic rock show 3 times a week until about nine months ago - I needed a break from it and sadly the station folded shortly afterwards (no I'm not claiming it was my departure that caused their closure!)

As we are talking music, I'm pretty much off work now until after Christmas - a surplus of annual leave to use up before year end) and I was listening to Planet Rock radio while typing the above message - and Motorhead came on with the charming little ditty "Orgasmatron". Motorhead are really a bit too heavy for my liking but really enjoyed hearing that for the first time in years!

Here is a little poser for a bit of fun, be interesting to see what opinions come out of it.

Compose a supergroup from any era of popular music! Lets have vocalist, lead, rhythm and bass guitars, keyboards, maybe a brass section and some strings as well.

Guess a lot will depend on your musical taste as to how you see this panning out. My choices would be pretty much rock based.

So..........

Vocals?
Lead guitar?
Rhythm guitar?
Bass?
Keyboards?
Drums?
Trumpet/Sax/Trombone?
Violin?

The only clearcut ones in my mind at the moment are........... ermmmm........thinking about it..............

Lead guitar Mark Knopfler (by the tiniest of margins ahead of Clapton)

I'd have Mike Portnoy on drums, Geddy Lee on Bass, Alex Lifeson rhythm guitar, Nuno Bettencourt on lead guitar (could have been John Petrucci but that would have been almost all of Dream Theater and Rush) and the maestro himself on keyboards, Mr Keith Emerson.

Cant really think of a singer to go with that lot! Paul Rodgers is one of my favourite singers but not sure he'd fit in with them - Glenn Hughes perhaps or maybe they just stick to instrumentals

I did notice the Rush theme there, sure you don't want Neil Peart on drums?? Mate of mine is drummer and knows his stuff, he rates him as the best of the best. Personally, being a huge Genesis fan, it would be Chester Thompson for me Smile

It was the usual barrage of Crimbo songs on the radio today and whilst listening to Band Aid, it made me think. Is it the greatest single ever released? Not because of the quality of the song but more to do with the whole story surrounding it. Written in the back of a London cab, the bringing together of some of the biggest egos in British pop music at short notice, the millions of pounds raised and most importantly, the effect it had on so many lives in Africa.

So, is Feed the World the greatest single of all time?

No doubting the effect it had on so many lives in Africa but perhaps only in the short term?

Is there much difference between the number of people suffering from malnutrition now in Africa and when Band Aid released Feed the World in 1985? My guess is that the only difference now is that it is not in our faces on our TV screens every night...

I honestly don't know the answer to your question. I'd like to think that fewer people are suffering now than in the 80's, unfortunately the media only cover the stories that grab peoples attention. Millions dying gets more headlines than thousands surviving. Hopefully there will be long term benefits, self sufficient villages, water bore holes, education and health programs.

Was Band Aid the root cause of this, or even just a catalyst? If nothing else, it was the first of many charity singles and that can't be a bad thing.

D4S sums it up for me by saying it maybe wasn't the greatest song ever written but it was certainly massively influential

I can't comment on the humanitarian effect it had as I don't know te figures but it was certainy iconic and the live aid effort that followed was truly groundbreaking if only to hear Sir Bob say "give us your fucking money" live on mainstream TV

As a music lover I still say to this day that Live Aid day was one of the best days of my life outside of family things such as birth of a child etc.

To see bands such as Queen, Bowie, Dire Straits, U2 at their VERY best all on one say is something I wont forget quickly - and some of the unsung heros of the day like Paul Young, Elvis Costello, Weller and yes, even Adam Ant who never really get a mention when remembering the day

Did you see the documentary about Live Aid last Christmas? Apparently, Geldof never actually said that, it's an urban myth. I thought he said exactly that phrase as well.

Interesting D4S - I didn't see the documentary, and have never heard the urban myth story.

I've just done a bit of searching though and it appears you are right. However, what did seem to happen was he got exasperated at the BBC plugging the postal address and wanted more people to call ni and pledge right then - apparently he did say "F*** the address" and then later added something about give us your money. So although the words have become mixed up the sentiment remains

Live Aid - A day well spent watching some fantastic acts and one or two acts that didn't quite pull it off.

Didn't realise it at the time, but the whole shebang was produced by Trevor Dann, an old school mate of mine.

Clever Trevor!

It was an excellent day; first time (as far as I'm aware) that they coordinated such a huge event on both sides of the pond. Thought Queen and The Who were the standout performances for me on the day, but was a fantastic event which people I was working with at the Q (ranging from 20s to 50s) all watched and gave money to a worthy cause. The 'money-shot' song, the one which really got people reaching for their phones and their wallets was when they played 'Drive' by the Cars Crying or Very sad

Good choices Shanker; I agree with all those with the exception of the lead; which I think would have to be either Steve Marriott or Otis Redding - I would also have 'Moon the Loon' on drums because he gelled so well with Entwhistle
