"With the exception of Pearl Jam's first two albums, I could have done without the entire 90's grunge movement (Nirvana, Soundarden, and their ilk). While I appreciate the fact that they blew hair metal off the map and admire their lack of…"
"I'm still confused as to whether the shark jump is the last great album or when the sucking started, so I'll include both:
Last great album: "Running on Empty", Sucking started: "Hold Out"
"Always hated Journey. Foreigner and Toto too. (Wizard of Oz reference not intentional.) Starship was okay til they dropped the "Jefferson", then I totally agree they sucked. Air Supply and Vanilla Ice aren't really worth mentioning,…"
"In the words of an old commercial: often imitated, never duplicated. On the other hand, their own covers of "Trouble No More" and "Statesboro Blues" compare favorably, at the very least, to the originals.
"A bit obvious perhaps, but in response to all the anger, mud-slinging, and name-calling that seems to have reached an all-time high during this particular campaign, I think everyone involved would do well to heed John's advice and "free…"

"It's truly incredible, how his attitude seems to have changed. He PERFORMED with the remaining Monkees, something I swear he said he would never do again after the '80s. It is baffling. As for the meeting, he was so gracious and answered…"
"Harry, I was moved to buy that song based upon your post. And Anna, it is WAY cool to meet Mr. Nesmith. In all of my readings, he was very reclusive and didn't make public appearances...and damn sure didn't reaffirm his former…"
"......hey Eddie....I hope we don't crash cuz (Stan breaks into song...) "I Wanna Go Back!"......you know what I mean pal....I need the plane to "Take Me Home Tonight!" (rim shot.....tip your bartenders..)"

A couple of years back, he got on Facebook and he posts long, winding tales about himself, his dogs, his home, his past, and a really lovely Mother's Day post last weekend. Photos go up.
