    No Thomas Dolby, Human League, New Order, Depeche Mode, or Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark riffs?
    I think he's more into R&B and that Italdisco shit.
    That makes sense. The dude seems to be completely clueless. Synth was a popularized early 80's thing to me

  2. DLR: "I'm Only In The Middle Of My First Retirement"

    These aging, wheezing classic rock bands are on the whole too old to get it up.

    Had to ask myself several years back, why am I continuing to pay good money for substandard performances? For the privilege of being in the vicinity of 'living legends'?

    Fuck 'em. Let others fund their golden years.
    Depends. Saw Cheap Trick and they are still good. Robin Zander sings as good as ever. Saw Ace Frehley. Must have been a good night. I enjoyed it. His solos were great. Alice Cooper still worth seeing. With Ace he had a great band. He lays back and let’s the band carry him while he throws picks out but when it’s Ace do a solo time he’s still Ace Frehley.

    I can see wanting to see the band before they finally tap out from touring, therefore you bite the bullet and overpay the piper, particularly if one has never seen them live...because the Stones...they're just one of those bands...and with Charlie having passed an Mick having suffered heart problems, clearly it is no longer the case that the chances to see the band are endless in terms of years and years left to check them out.

    I can recall thinking at the time that the $50 I paid for my scalped Stones ticket in 1989 was akin to highway robbery...good luck paying less than 6x that amount now, and that's just for nosebleed stadium seats.
    What’s funny is in 1981 I did the same thing. I had a summer job at a country club. Two of the lifeguards who were older were talking about getting tickets to see The Stones in Phoenix. Me and another guy decided we might as well go because The Stones we’re getting old and we might not have another chance. So we bought our tickets and headed to Phoenix in one of the life guard’s van.

  4. Dave: "I'm Retiring"

    Dave is a smoker. Cigarettes, pot and cigars. I don’t think he was the chain smoker Ed was. I will speak from personal experience. Everyone I knew who smoked which was a lot of people (neighbors, teachers, people who worked for my dad, relatives) all died of smoking related illness before they were 70. My doctor even smoked. He lived right next door to us. He never smoked at the office but at home he always had a cigarette. Nice guy but the Winston’s took him.

    If Dave didn't participate, reason number one was he couldn't have sung his parts correctly IMO.
    Sad but true. Dave could be a dancer in the background though. Give the guy a cane and a top hat and a few females to balance it out. Just don't sing Dave. Please! Well hell. Maybe Dave should become Jami Van Halen's new dance partner. I'm sure Ed would love that. They could be on Dancing With The Stars.
