    Just let it drop - wolf - he's just another teenybop idle like Shawn Cassidy
    or any of those kids from back in our day ...
    They ran out of steam on their own dime and sure didn't need our help to do so,
    and so will he ...!

    The thing that kicks me crazy is old hotlegs Rod Stewart doing The Great American Songbook for new fans ...
    That 2 octave range of his whiskey voice doing all the classics - and people actually pay money to see/hear him ...
    and brag about it afterwards!

    I like his old rock stuff with Jeff Beck, with The Faces, and his old solo stuff,
    but he doesn't have the voice to croon ... yet he's making tons of money doing so!!

    THAT is amazing

    I once read an interview with Jeff Beck and they asked about a Jeff Beck/Rod Stewart reunion. Mr. Beck said.."Rod and I have a love/hate relationship...he loves me , and I hate him.." So much for that...!

    Play a little Fire Fall, well recorded and it will change your mood.

    Artists I can't stand...

    I have to go with Rush. Every time I hear Geddy Lee sing I want to grab him by the throat, bitch slap him, and tell him to STFU!

    Then you have Michael Bolton, Celine Dion, Bruce Springsteen, the "Biebs", Paris Hilton, and that skank Miley.

    There you have it...

    Bad singers

    There is a fine line between awful and cool when it comes to a husky voice.

    Michael Bolton: Awful

    Tom Waits: Cool

    Kim Carnes: Awful

    Janis Joplin: Cool

    Oh, and there is one more musician who makes me want to hurl. "Mr. Elevator Music", Kenny G. Gorlick for those who may remember his debut on the Jeff Lorber Galaxian album. The soprano sax was cool until he hit the charts. :-( Thank God he doesn't play a tenor.

    As for the "Biebs". That kid will be yesterdays news if his balls ever drop.

    I do have a favorite female singer at the moment, Melody Gardot. She's a smokin' hottie too! She overcame a personal tragedy that is worth reading about.

    I was out riding ,with the little Nano going (low) ..... I generally really like
    THE YARDBIRDS , and recently had put their greatest hits on it.

    After a while up comes one of the worst tunes that I've heard in a long time.

    HANG ON SLOOPY .... who even knew they covered it, much less it was a GH ?

    (the studio version is even worse)

    While Katy Perry is innocuous enough , and I'm pretty sure she didn't design that half-time mess , she certainly won't be on my fave artists list after my first exposure ...

    looks like the press agreed:

    Perry is an artistic light-weight. Her songs are catchy pop confections, sweet and frothy, but bereft of depth or even a hint of surprise. And while her stage attire for her concert tours has included pyrotechnic-equipped bras, she didn't bring any of them with her Sunday.

    There was a car commercial last Xmas where Bolton popped up in the back seat of the car singing (?) like some ghost, scaring the driver ..scared me too .

    Kenny G ?? oh yuk

    yeah, I enjoy JJ too.

    Michael Bolton in the back seat? Yikes!

    I'd rather deal with this;

    Hey Krunchy, try Radio Paradise. http://www.radioparadise.com

    "RP is a blend of many styles and genres of music, carefully selected and mixed by two real human beings. You'll hear modern and classic rock, world music, electronica, even a bit of classical and jazz. What you won't hear are random computer-generated playlists or mind-numbing commercials.

    Our specialty is taking a diverse assortment of songs and making them flow together in a way that makes sense harmonically, rhythmically, and lyrically — an art that, to us, is the very essence of radio.
    ...

    Your grateful hosts, Bill & Rebecca Goldsmith"



    Not sure if anyone has yet mentioned that King of Morons - Ted Nugent. Wango Tango? Seriously?

    I just came in from outside, doing something on 2 wheels (won't name the activity, so as not to piss off the OT intolerant one) ... the Nano was playing a Live Eagles concert. When they finished "Ol'e 55" , the speaker came on and mentioned that it was an old Tom Waits song. Said "Tom didn't much like our version, 'till he got the check , now we're good friends"

    Ahhh, it has been a very, very long time since I listened (at home) to DK. I do still listen to the PB tracks that aren't in evidence at the shows.

    On a slight twist to the original post, in my late teen years I had a prejudiced dislike for Donovan due to his big hit Mellow Yellow and his over-the-top hippie persona. I picked up a used Donovan vinyl record on a whim just recently (Open Road 1970) and was startled in listening through the album. Granted it's a departure from his earlier style but I realized that the dude had talent far beyond my recollection. Apologies, Mr. Leitch.
