  1. A great, great writer.
  2. He could make the same comments with a guitar in his hands.
  3. I have no interest in listening to Bruce play disc jockey.
  4. I don't think it's a ring signifying the end of a relationship. Throughout the song, he tells her "don't wait up for me, it's gonna be a long walk home." I always took that to mean the woman he is walking home to is in the distance, in the town where he was born. For me, whatever doorway he's standing at in the opening verse is meant to imply that he's in a place far from home, or far from the ideals that the song is actually about. It may not even be a she who slips the mystery object into his palm. Every time I hear the line, I am reminded of the title track and the coin in his palm; he could make it disappear.
  5. Just watched a good documentary on Netflix. ZZ Top: That Little Ol' Band From Texas. I only saw them once live and it was a great, great show.
  6. Yep. Just the other day, I told him to sit down and he stood up.
  7. Anybody remember this band. They should be on the one hit wonder thread.
  8. I used to be a fanatic with the bootlegs. At one point I had a huge retail rack of hundreds and hundreds of boots I had bought or burned. When I went digital, I had the entire contents of the old SPL FTP downloaded to various hard drives. Over the last ten years or so, I guess since The Rising tour, I've whittled my digital collection down to bare essentials, almost exclusively soundboard or FM quality. The thing is, I don't listen to them anymore. I think they're just marking time until they are replaced by Archive Series releases.
  9. I love his music, especially the first two albums. That debut record was one of those albums that almost everyone in the neighborhood seemed to own.
  10. I love soft rock when it's done well and this album was perfection. Get well, Christopher Cross.
  11. Thanks, Bruce. Was hoping we'd still get a show during lockdown. It really is the little things that count and lately the little things seem a whole lot bigger. Enjoying my campfire immensely tonight. Finding myself especially emotional during the roll call. The world's gonna have a tough, tough roll call when this is finally over, but tonight, alone by my fire with another healthy day behind me, everything's okay for the moment. Take care, everyone.
