    Sitting here in Philly 'burbs riding the ROCK high. Rock is not dead ------it lives in the minds+hearts of its followers. I get up at 5 every morning. I need something to get the cobwebs spinning. The cobwebs are my friend, clear-heads are not needed in 2016. I pound 61 oz of black coffee and get into my Lumina. My mp4 player is set on random=Venom+Carpenters+Albert Ayler.........creates an open mind. I push THE BUTTON?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Yes. Uncle Ted hits the cranium. Great White Buffalo----this is one of the "chippiest" riffs ever. Those Detroit guys-Mc5+Ig+Bob Seger+Mitch+++++ get that "shifting gears" sound. The Motor City does not play tippy tap.

    now what???????????????????????

    Beatles Anthology=I Dig a Pony-Some say this is a weak song? No! The guitar has a sweet half-cocked wah tone. The Beatles "rejects" are better than 99.9 others "gems." I prefer listening to alt versions of familiar songs. I listened to a live version of The Wall yesterday. Opened my eyes. Gilmour brings new twists live.

    Silence...............

    Under My Wheels- MORE DETROIT ROCK! I hold my energy inside. I used to ride bumpers-that is for kids. I now drive SSSSSSSSSSssssssssssssssssssssssssllllllllllllllloooooooooowwwww. Let my chakras rest. The slower you move ;the more your inner "volcano" bubbles. I pull into 7-11 for MORE coffee. The DOPE behind me gives me the finger........THANK YOU R+R!

    Life is full of surprises.

    I never never never never never never expected that I would hear, on this forum, anybody talking about Albert Ayler.

    For one thing, the forum is not aimed at people who play jazz, or play horns in general, or sax in particular.

    But you're right Fezz, it's good to have an open mind.

    (Meanwhile.... I only listen to AA infrequently.)

    "I prefer listening to alt versions of familiar songs."
    Me too.

    Although I have to fight some band members about this, whenever somebody suggests to cover a song I always go towards live versions, versions from other people.

    I don't know why my mates are so attracted to the studio version of a song: seems to me that any live version is likely to have more life and interest in it.
    ___

    'The Beatles "rejects" are better than 99.9 others "gems."'

    I'm still with you.

    For one: I feel the same about Hendrix. My faves are the ones that are seldom mentioned. I love 'The Burning of the Midnight Lamp' for e.g.

    For two: I feel the same about Shakespeare.
    The play I know best, and have spent the most time with, is 'Pericles' - which is universally discounted as his worst work.

    For three: with William Blake I go in the same direction as I did with Shakespeare.
    You guys probably don't need to know chapter and verse about that.
    But you can be assured that what I like best from Blake is something that most people count as uninteresting.

    For four: well, members here already know; I bought Marshall's worst amp specifically because I knew it was universally esteemed to be the worst.

    There's pattern here. Maybe there is something wrong with me.

    Fezz is making me love him tonight.

    Also, we have not even mined the original post.

    Fezz mentioned MC5...

    In the 80s I normally assumed that there did not exist any American punk, I mean, not any punk like English punk.

    But I had an ear for MC5.

    Isn't that something, meaning we all should be able to turn on the local rock station and have these songs at our fingertips but NOOOOO! Radio has become "The Great White Buffalo". If you want cool grooves you have to pay for Sirius XFM or use your mp3 player. Auto dealers might as well throw away the radio portion of media players in autos as they're about as useless as tits on a boar hog. Just like department stores which are just about as useless. I'd rather go to the "Airplane Hangar Store" that has everything and do away with department stores AND mail order.

    Does this sound grunty enough to grace the presence of thine ears?

    When I was a teen, Ted Nugent came through OKC everytime one turned around (seriously). He must've had a girlfriend here as I've never seen any group tour OKC as much as Ted did.
