  1. LOL - Kay I am guilty of this one too. On that note - I used to dislike John Mayer, but have come around a bit. This has been heavily influenced by his being part of Dead & company.
  2. This has been a fun read. As Promised61 said it's in the ear of the beholder. (I like to say "There's no accounting for taste" mine or yours really ) Last year I did one of those 10 albums in 10 days things on facebook. Was more a conversation between various friends as I had enjoyed reading a few of their lists. I chose a Bruce album of course - it wasn't necessarily his best but the challenge was 10 albums you still listen to, and I based it on a few things, like memories, and importance then, as well as still listened to. So I chose River, but I wouldn't call it a Masterpiece. Not sure which of Bruce's I would call a Masterpiece , a number are great all time albums, and BTR is a kind of masterpiece. But for me I would probably start this conversation with Nebraska. After that, hard to say GOTJ, ToL, and BTR (in no particular order but not sure they are masterpieces) As for Promised61's four masterpieces - two of them made my list of 10 on facebook. PS - Highway 61 is in fact a category all to itself as far as I'm concerned. Greil Marcus wrote an entire book about one song on it, and the rest of the album is just as good/important/ground breaking etc.
  3. I sing this as a lullaby to my daughter (sans chorus). It is just about as beautiful as anything I can think of.
  4. Mostly it's about the money Daisey. In the 80's when India toured Australia it was often a 3 test series (if I remember correctly). No its 5 all the time, due to the fact that India vs Australia draws big crowds and big TV audiences. The Ashes has been 5 tests ever since the 70's. Before then it was sometimes 6 tests or whatever - particularly before they were flying.
  5. I thought it was about the fact that Paine is/was a New Zealander. Wasn't he born there? There is this old joke from 10-20 years ago: Why does English cricket tour South Africa so often? - So the players can visit home.
  6. Not so rescued possum: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7148945/The-stuff-nightmares-Husband-wife-stumble-spider-eating-entire-POSSUM.html?fbclid=IwAR0u3SKHJEenwDSAveXifQpSD01mNL_2G2Sh8SkPU907Z9S1-4_5m9rRSCw
  7. Well we are all allowed to be selfish in our wishes and desires, but I think that some of this material has led to him doing some of his best rockin work. Without Seeger sessions would we have Death to My Hometown, which I consider one of his best from the last 20 years. I am also a fan of the GoTJ live with Morello on the High Hopes tour as a live rocker (I know I will probably get skewered or that :) )
  8. Good point - or he could easily decide to go the Billy Joel route, and do regular (monthly) shows at MSG and a few other east coast venues for a more extended period. Though this may not include the full ESB if he does - don't know why I think that but I do. Doesn't really strike me as his style, but as said given his family circumstances he may want to stay close but keep playing and this would be an option.
  9. I don't watch it either, was sent to me by a friend a few years ago. For me there was one other thing, but I won't post it here as its more of a Fight Club trigger (Karl's response to Peter Dutton about refugees coming to Australia )
  10. Well part of me says you can have him, but he will always have a place in my heart for two things: 1) Wearing the same suit for a whole year on air, and only revealing it when the year was up as a shout out to female colleagues criticised over their attire. and 2) This:
  11. Well given Max and Roy are all over Bat out of Hell it's not that far off, but yeah kinda agree.
  12. Leave it on the shelf where it belongs, it has no value and serves no sensible purpose.
  13. Relax mate, you're marrying someone from ONE state, as such you need to learn that lingo, and then scoff and roll your eyes and tell all the others that they're wrong, or crazy or whatever you like. Unless of course her family are from a different state, then best learn that one too, when the in laws send you to buy the beer knowing what is ordered is critical!!
  14. Yep - listening to the second Melbourne night from 2017 ATM Wish I could forget the drunken Irish woman that was right in front of me being really annoying. Would still put up with it any day for another show.
