When playing in my old band at some dodgy place in Ascot Vale, the 'crowd' had reduced to zero at one stage. While the guitarist was playing an excessively long solo, the singer wandered off (mid song) for a toilet break, and returned to the stage to participate in the completion of the song.

 

 

When you gotta go….

You were the bass player?

Grandmaster Flash would beg to differ 

Hi WCW. I figured it was safe to enter the conversation now that it seems to have moved on from death metal. 
 

I just had to google Grandmaster Flash. He’s a hip hop dj apparently (more uncharted territory for me unfortunately). Edge is a lead guitarist so I’m not sure where the similarity is but I will look him up online later and steer you in the direction of Edge’s guitar solos in the middle of live versions of The Fly and Mysterious Ways.

Nah ... keyboards/backing vocals.

Look up the Rick Wakeman story online, it is one of the funniest music stories i have ever read. 
Rick was also interviewed on “Top Gear” a few times. Loves his cars

He lives in Canterbury in Kent. I’d pass him in the street a lot when I lived there. Might give that a read Sir.

I didn’t realise your comment was about Edge, the U2 member. I was thinking of a line from “The Message” a song by Grandmaster Flash which goes, “Don’t push me ’cause I’m close to the edge.” 
PS: not a U2 fan.

I'm down with all forms of music and musical expression

except most country music. It has a very whiney, formulaic quality to it. Maybe there's a country music fan on the forum that can explain or enlighten me regarding the attraction of country music.

I'm the same, never got into country music other than Johnny Cash. It's the only genre of music (other than formulaic pop music which I don't really count) that I just can't get into.

On The Beatles it's only in the last 5-10 years I've really got into. Always thought they were overhyped as a kid though I did get that at the time they would have been revolutionary. But I've really come to appreciate them in recent years.

King Crimson are a bit of an enigma band to me - I absolute love their debut In the Court of the Crimson King but haven't been able to get into any of their other work much.

As a teenager I turned my nose up at electronic music and hip hop/rap as "not real music" but I've come to appreciate and love certain acts.

I confess ... I'm a dinosaur. To me rap = talking/shouting/mumbling.

Johnny Cash covering Depeche Mode and U2 in his dying days breaks my heart.

Back on topic, might be time to change my moniker. It's a bit too close to the truth.

I had noble reasons for using my real name - wanting to be accountable for the things I said online, keeping myself in check. But to hell with that now!

Also, I don't want to be confused with @BenF, @Ben, @Ben Elliott@Bendigo Demon, @benman (binman's NZ counterpart!) etc.

I'm liking all this music talk. Perhaps that's where I'll go with the new name . . .

Give the album Red a shot mate 

Also their 80s comeback Discipline is very good 

My personal favourite is Larks Tounges in Aspic, but it's not for everyone

Some is but like every genre there is great stuff along with the dross.

I have Kendrick Lamar's good kid maad city as my favourite album of the 2010s, I can listen to it on repeat for days.

I'm not a fan of Drake and the mumble rap stuff but Snoop, Ice Cube, Dre, Nas, Tupac, Cypress Hill, Ill Bill, Necro, Eminem - there's serious talent there creating another spectrum of music. Even bands like Rage Against The Machine who fuse rap and rock although as good as they were they could also be charged with paving the way for nu-metal 🤮

I’m lost for words. Surely you can’t deny how important they are?

I know a lot of people hate The Beatles especially those in the punk scenes. For some they were the next generation rebelling against The Beatles for some they just don't like their style. I don't like everything they did but there is gold in their catalogue - I can see why some people wouldn't like them though but I guess it also depends on what they've heard of them.

I always get a laugh out of the Simpsons saying The Beatles are the songs on Maggie's tape player - it's true, one of the things that actually got me to listen to The Beatles properly was my kids watching this show called Beat Bugs when they were younger where animated bugs put together the Beatles songs 🤣

There’s a really good song exploder episode on Netflix where Reznor talks about writing the song and all it represents. 

That entire album is amazing, from memory it was recorded in the Tate house where the Manson murders occurred. An absolute masterpiece of 90s post-modern nihilism.

I remember watching Fight Club and about 30-40 minutes in going "this story is following the same story beats as The Downward Spiral" - a few years later I read an article with Chuck Palahniuk where he said he was listening to Downward Spiral on repeat while writing the book.

They’re a band. They’re one of many, many bands. I understand they are considered important by probably most people but I just don’t like their music.

You can see there is a difference in that statement though

I appreciate that many other people find them super important - including one of my personal favourites and the influence on his career and life Paul Weller, however me personally, The Beatles are tepid, middling and uninteresting ... and I've tried.

Blackbird is bloody cool though...

Prefer Nick  Drake... but maybe cause I'm miserable :)

Depeche Mode = 🤌 💛 

I was a huge Rammstein fan back in the day and my fave song was “Stripped” which I later discovered was a Depeche Mode song. Respect.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
