  1. It's obvious when you watch it how much they really did/do care for each other. Also, how they wouldn't/won't go out as Rush without Neil.
  2. Where are the Barbie dolls? Me too!
  3. I read/heard someplace that Paradise was originally 27 minutes long...Steinman thought that Todd Rundgren "butchered" it.
  4. I've always loved this song, but this is beautiful! It seems like he has been practicing his guitar during lockdown.
  5. I wanted to love this, because I think Nancy's great, but I don't . I think it's good, but it doesn't blow me away. For some reason, I tend not to like Bruce covers done by women.
  6. This reminds me of once when my concert schedule was empty (pre-Covid), and I went to a free show in a park. I texted my friend, "I'm so desperate for live music, I went to see a Bon Jovi tribute band." His reply: "It couldn't be worse than the real thing."
  7. Two of my faves on the same stage. I so wish I could have been there for this!
  8. I think I played this album every single day for an entire Summer (at least). Sometimes in the dark with the headphones on. Maybe better even! And the screaming chickies are Moms and Grandmas now, so they don't scream as much anymore! Peter's son, Julian, is a very talented musician in his own right. And I just stumbled across this- love it! Especially the second song:
  9. Wow, so you've gotten Factory and Something in the Night, but not Candy's Room? That's crazy! Candy is fairly common (more than the others). I've also been lucky to see pretty much all of my bucket list songs, including ones I never thought I'd hear, like Mountain of Love and Prove It '78. But I guess I'll pick: Something in the Night (speaking of) Ain't Good Enough for You And this one is a real stretch, since it's a Stevie song, but I'd plotz if I got to hear Until the Good is Gone
  10. My favorites have switched positions throughout my life. I still enjoy listening to my old "number ones" (like Van Halen and Meat Loaf), but I don't follow them anymore like I once did. Peter Frampton was once my favorite; I kind of forgot about him for years, then "discovered" him again several years ago, and I'm so glad I did! Currently, Bruce will always be my number one. After him is Keith Urban, though I'm not overly fond of his last couple of releases. After that, in no particular order, I'd say: Rush Elton John Frank Zappa (Loads of others)
  11. Nice interview with Meat in Rolling Stone: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/meat-loaf-remembers-jim-steinman-1160041/
  12. Indeed. Rest in peace, Jimmy. Thank you for a lifetime of rock and roll dreams. With love, from the kid in the dark with the headphones on. <3 (Skip to 5:33)
  13. I don't think there is any song that I wish he hadn't played, though there are some that I'd happily swap out for others. I don't mind Sunny Day (I enjoy watching the audience have fun), though I wouldn't mind at all if he dropped it. Especially at the 11/7/09 Wild and Innocent show- having it start up after the album was like a slap back to reality with a dead fish!
  14. This was also my last ESB show. (My last time seeing Bruce was Stand Up for Heroes 2019.) It was amazing- Bruce pulled out ALL of the epics! Before that last run of shows, if someone had posted that setlist, they would have been accused of lying! Sandy was just magical that night. It felt like an end to me also, but more like the end of a chapter than closing the book. Having said that, if it turns out it was my last show, I'm ok with that. I've seen pretty much every song I really wanted to see (though I'm sure I can come up with one of two more ). I really hope they have at least one more tour in them.
  15. This one is fan-made, but I watch it sometimes when I need a "fix". (Maybe some of you are in it.)
  16. Wow, I don't know what to say except that I'm very sad to hear this! I didn't really know Marsha well, but she seemed like a very sweet person. My condolences to her family and friends.
  17. I've thought that the guy in Somewhere North of Nashville was sleeping in the backseat of a borrowed car.
  18. I was at the Pittsburgh 4/22/14 show. I got very excited when Bruce sat down at the piano (I love it when he plays piano ), though I was expecting For You, so I was thrilled to get The Promise instead. Having said that, there's something really special about the '70's performances. The aforementioned Seattle one is great, but I also like Dallas '78 (I believe). I do like the full band version also, especially the Carousel performance with David Lindley on violin.
  19. Oh, no doubt Bruce has good lawyers. My source also said (as you did) that impairment is much harder to prove without a BAC.
  20. According to someone I spoke with who knows about these things, there technically is not a permitted alcohol level. I asked him what is the point in having a limit if a person can still be charged below it. He said the difference is the potential penalties are higher if someone is above the limit. If the stories are true, Bruce admitted that he drank and then intended to drive away. Having said that, he didn't think Bruce will receive any serious penalties, if any.
  21. I've been told I drive like an old lady, and even I've been pulled over for speeding. But the nice sonny boy officer let me go with a warning.
  22. Exactly- there are reasons why (eg. age, previous injuries, etc.) he might have failed the sobriety test without being drunk. I think the blow to his reputation is likely to be worse than any punishment he might receive. Which, if this was leaked deliberately, the damage was done.
