  1. Well yeah but that had horns to start with. I believe the OP intended what is better with horns that didn't start off as such.
  2. A big influence on Bruce and so many, but not so much on me. And murder aside, by most accounts not a nice man. But still, rest in peace Phil.
  3. I'm a Nils fan. I had several of his albums before Bruce came into my consciousness. But that Prove It solo is awful. Just show-offy. It might have been nice background noise for a cheesy '50s sci fi flick but I have no use for it.
  4. I know what you mean, those two were pivotal in my indoctrination in 1978. But here in 2020 (2021?) I don't feel a need for them anymore.
  5. I have no issue with the Sunny day kids because I never listen to that song anyway.
  6. In my early fandom I found Bruce's stories endearing but I'm done with them now. But I now have the technology and developed the skill to digitally edit and I do it extensively. So songs like Growin' Up get the clip. I like live performances but I have no use for the crowd. I do a lot of edits to get rid of crowd noise. If there was a magic app that could remove the crowd and not affect the music I would be all over it. I could go on and on about my editing hobby but it would be too much typing and no one really cares. But I do some great work. (I say humbly)
  7. I don't think he's ever been much of a pedal guy. I recall a '78 show where he called out for the sound man to add some slapback to his guitar. He's not really a gear head. I think he lets the tech guys handle that stuff.
  8. Well of course I could. But come on now burgfan, I think you can figure out that the "strings" I'm referring to mean orchestration. If you do I appreciate the humor. If you don't I don't care to humor you. Y'all have a nice day.
  9. A few years ago Ray Davies did an orchestral album of his classics. I bought it because I'm a huge Kinks fan but I never listen to it. My general opinion is in classical music strings rock. In rock music strings are unneeded.
  10. I remember seeing something in print about Spuce Stringbean. It has a nice ring.
