Clapton Concert

Your chance to write big-time blues reviews. Only two rules: First, if you're connected to the band or artist, go to Shameless Promotion; Second, don't write a book -- keep it relatively short and simple, no 1,000+ word epics.

Oh .. and make it fun.

Strangely, my rebellious 18 y/o son also is into rock and significantly turned off by Rap and what he calls Dance Music. However the mainstream seems to be going in the direction of rhyme, beat and little instrumentation. Skill seems to have died.

Oh man, how often have we heard that? Try every generation. When I was a kid, my parent's generation called rock a bunch of stupid jungle music - primitive beat, no musical skill, insipid lyrics, etc., etc. The irony is they got the same reaction from THEIR parents to Jazz - stupid jungle music, primitive beat...

Notice a pattern here? Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Louis Armstrong - those guys were innovators, not traditionalists. Don't get me wrong, I love the blues tradition - as Keith Richards once said, it's the motherlode. But I also like Wyclef Jean and Outkast and actually see them as part of the evolution.

Am I gonna get kicked off the board now?

Hell no... if Zak can play in punk and rockabilly bands, we can probably handle another member who isn't zoned in completely on blues.

Contact me for directions.

Hey, what's going on in this thread?

Is that a copy of "Disreali Gears"?

Ok, you, put your hands on the wall.

I've had trouble with you before.

Move the word 'interested' over a couple words to be:

"...said parties might be interested in looking at these files before they get removed."

lalalalalala, Just ignore my butchery of the language in the early morning hours.
