I don't know why, and please don't judge but I woke up wanting to listen to:

The circumstances of the world are continually changing, and the opinions of men change also; and as government is for the living, and not for the dead, it is the living only that has any right in it. That which may be thought right and found convenient in one age, may be thought wrong and found inconvenient in another. In such cases, who is to decide, the living, or the dead? -Thomas Paine

Working on some old Rush tunes these days. My friend Jason, the best drummer I've ever worked with, is nearly finished building a new studio a couple of towns over, and wants to work on a few sets, one of which would be an hour or so of old Rush. I love that stuff. We will probably also work on a blues set, a classic rock set, and (ugh) a country rock set.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Roy Hunter wrote:Lots of solo Beatles music.

I am doing a charity night as I have done many times in the past, playing drums in a house band for a bunch of micro-celebs to sing songs on a theme, and also shout at people to cough money into a bucket for CHARIDEEE!!!

I very nearly got burned a few years back with a Simon and Garfunkel-themed night, Paul Simon (and to a lesser extent Art Garfunkel) used some amazing drummers to produce some amazing music, and I had a week to learn a month's worth of music that was three pay grades above my ability. I got away with it. Just. Only just. No, seriously, there were some Steve Gadd-emulation "don't fuck up" moments that will haunt me until I die.

Anyway, music by solo Beatles. An interesting canon, and by far the standout guy is Harrison. He's not bitter (Lennon's How Do You Sleep?), Complacent (er - Ringo's entire back catalogue), or lost it completely ( McCartney's Frog Chorus anyone?). Really enjoying the Harrison stuff. Less so the Lennon and McCartney stuff. As for Ringo...


Arr , Harrison was and is my favorite Beattle . I always found it annoying when music snobs refer to Lennon as "touched by God" and Harrison as just a dedicated musician .
I was going to flame the pompous twat

Theme from " The Stationary Ark " by John Mills-Cockell on youtube , it's not the original version I remember from 40 years ago but still hauntingly beautiful . I'd love to have a copy of the original but i suspect it no longer exists . Supposedly a fan contacted Mills-Cockell years ago asking for a copy , no luck , all gone .
When i am deep in depression and feel like death , music like this snaps me right out of the funk , thank you Mr. Mills-Cockell your composition is a medical marvel for me !

A lot of Jon, personally. Pandora occasionally throws some Nickelback, sometimes a bit of Queen, my way.

It's part of my job. I don't just listen. I talk, too.

In the thumbnail for the 'Up next' video, the main is wearing an eye patch. Coincidence that you were drawn to him? I think not!
