  1. 4 years? yes, very sad news. The guy was loved by so many.
  2. Even though they've been labeled a grunge band, they really are a rock band with some punk influence. But, mostly they follow in the same lane as early 70's The Who or Neil Young. I've seen them a number of times, and they have regularly covered songs by The Who, Rolling Stones, and Neil Young. Enjoy the show. I'm still looking for a show in the area that I can make. Maybe Nashville.
  3. Last photo of Keith Moon (Sept. 6, 1978) Always the rocker, he was photographed after sharing a dinner with Paul and Linda McCartney in London before the movie premier of "The Buddy Holly Story". Notice the Wings shirt that he is wearing. Moonie was dead the next day.
  4. Four of the best pop/rock songs in the past fifty years:
  5. An ironing board is a completely different item. This is not a completely different item. Just sayin’. This is of the same vintage with nearly identical graphics. Likely from the same printer and the same distribution. I think it’s a pretty good guide as to the OP poster.
  6. They seem to be doing exceptionally well. Maybe they're talking about the proverbial "others".
  7. http://www.limageriegallery.com/Bruce_Springsteen_Original_Promotional_Poster_p/rock_805.htm Here's another. 36"x36" double sided promotional poster. Listed on the site for $200, but currently sold out. Might be a good guide to the value.
  8. Yes, a certain segment of our society has absolutely no sense of humor....unable to laugh at themselves, and absolutely horrified and willing to cancel those who find humor in others. Now, throw out your hands!! Stick out your tush!! Hands on your hips. Give them a push!! You'll be surprised. You're doing the French Mistake!!
  9. This was one of my legendary "travel for Bruce" weekends. Mrs. Sonic and I made the trek to Tampa for that Super Bowl. Having been the year before in Phoenix (Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers graced halftime that year), and having access to SB tickets through a friend, I knew that we could not pass up the chance to go see Bruce.....and gawd, what an awful match up for a Cincinnati Bengals fan -- the Steelers and the Cardinals. Anyway, we spent the night down in Sarasota about 45 minutes from the stadium, and glory be to God, the E Street Band was staying in our hotel. Gary and Nils sat at the next table over from us at the bar. Barbara Carr sat close by as well. I got to say hello to the Professor by the elevators at closing time. They were all smiles and very excited about performing at halftime. On the day of the Super Bowl, it was terrific Florida weather. We partied at the big NFL pre-party near the stadium....Journey performed and maybe John Legend too, but I can't really remember seeing him. Tons of athletes and other celebs running around. It really was a great time for us and the other couple that we brought. On to the game and the show, the game came off as a Pittsburgh home game. Those folks are seriously die-hard, and travel very well. I recall getting slapped in the face with one of those Terrible Towels from an excited fan. I asked her to be a little more considerate...she told me to sit back further. I told her for the price of these tickets, I'd sit how ever I wanted. She stopped. Finally for the halftime show, Mrs. Sonic and I barreled down to the lower level to get a better view. Stood next to Warren Sapp, if anyone knows who that is...he's a human version of a mountain. As Bruce came on, it was truly magical. Really loved it with the streaming fireworks, the crazy crowd (Pittsburgh fans love them some Bruce), the Born to Run backdrop at the start, and the full-bore energy that Bruce brought to the stage. My God, it was sixty minutes of an amazing show condensed into eleven. So glad that we made the trip...I consider it one of my top five Bruce highlights. And it was great to watch the original broadcast on YouTube posted on the OP. Makes it even that much more exciting for me.
  10. Last time my wife and I saw Pearl Jam was in Cincinnati in 2014. We held off on tickets until the morning of the show and ended up with these seats... We were seated five rows from the side of the stage...and Mrs. Sonic even got to meet Sean Casey who was sitting against the side of the stage....
  11. This is on Mrs. Sonic's short-list this year.

  12. Has he considered investing in the stock market? It's doing quite well, I've heard.
  13. I plan on seeing him in Tel Aviv.
  14. Maybe you knew something back then?
