You’re right about Bobby Keys. It’s like another song pushed aside the start, and it is so good you really don’t mind.

And yeah, I’ve seen the movie. Penelope Cruz can always help me past the sadness.

If you have time you need to check out the new/old King Crimson.

Adrian Belew, Robert Fripp, Tony Levin, and Bill Bruford.

Layers of complexity

Nothing like ever or ever since.

I don’t think so.

Ever since I can remember, my life’s had a “sound track”.

Every song has a person, place or thing attached to it.

Some happy, some sad.

You could say I’m nostalgic but I prefer to think I’m “Living In The Past”.

/shameless Tull plug

Salamander -—
born in the sun-kissed flame.
Who was it lit your candle -—
branded you with your name?
I see you walking by my window
in your Kensington haze.
Salamander, burn for me
and I’ll burn for you.

[so..am I now too old to rock and roll and too young to die?]

;D

I should stay off these threads too.

But here I am!

Two things, The Who, along with all the pseudo music they driveled out of their collective bung holes need to be flushed.(But I really don't have a strong opinion on them.)

Second - and I'm not saying this should be Number One, mind you - the list is worthless without -

~This~!

Sweet.

Still love this classic, though

Which reminds me, NO PROCUL HARUM??
No Moody Blues??

Ack!

That does it.

I’m plugging my iPod into the stereo beside the couch.

I need my “good stuff” fix.
