Long ago, when I worked as a euphonium player in the Army, I

a euphamism player. :-)

I couldn't possibly top the Army for euphamisms.  That would truly be a full-time job.

Euphemasia.

I suppose now would be the appropriate time to mention that IGlet and IGlette seem to have started their own marching band. But since neither of them plays an instrument, they use a ringtone of "Stars and Stripes Forever" that's on my cell phone. They march around the house to a cell phone. It's kind of bizarre.


I'd love it if either or both of them took an interest in music. We want to be band parents. :)

I never got out of rush for the same reason Ig mentioned, I mostly got into them at 1987 my graduating year.  I've listened to them for a few years before that, but I wasn't really a big fan or anything.  But the other reason the lyrics don't bug me all that much is because I concentrate on the music aspect.  (I do this with every band actualy) To me the Music is everything, all lerix are to me is some guys opinion about something.  Everyone has opinions, just because someone can play the drums doesn't mean his opinion is any greater than anyone elses.

Re: Yes.  Yes is great, when they have Steve Howe, and Wakeman, and Anderson.  The other combinations don't do the band justice.  I saw Steve Howe live, solo it was pretty awsome, he was litteraly 10 feet from me in a little pub in NY city (I forget the name) I won tickets on wfuv. Although he can't sing to save his life. 

Other people have told me that they think RUSh's lyrix are sophmoric, but I've done a comparrison with just about every band I come across, and I still can't think of any band that is any less sophmoric than Rush.  I mean when it comes down to it, it's all pretty sophmoric.  Ever really listen to Pink Floyd?  Syd is the least sophmoric of the bunch AND IT TAKES A TON OF DRUGS TO DO THAT!!!

If anyone is really into progressive/clasic rock, do yourself a favor and go to youtube and look for The Outlaws, green grass and high tides. 

Not to mention anything with Frank Zappa *with* John Lennon.  (try and chew tin foil when yoko sings, it helps a lot.)

Groo, what did you think of Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman, & Howe?  I liked them at the time (late '80s), but when I heard the guitar-based mix of "Fist of Fire" that was on one of the Yes box sets, I liked that a LOT better than the originally released version.  (Did Rick Wakeman lock Steve Howe away from the mixing console the first time around?).

Bill Leeb.  Destroyer of nations.  Scourge of all that is sonic.  Or so I understand.

My sonic sonorities are sonorous.  And alliterative, on occasion.

I came across an old tape yesterday with a recording of "50 ways to rank your mother" on it.
And it's not the howard stern skit. I have some vague memory of it being dr. demento. Anybody knwo what I'm talking about?

I grew up with Yes, Pink Floyd, and the Who. Lots of LSD trips on those three. :-)

I grew up with Yes, Pink Floyd, and Dr. Who.  Subtly different.

No LSD trips for me.  I don't really seem to require them.

Man, I was trying to learn Jamiroquai chord progressions the other day, and I think I gave myself carpal tunnel. Much more jazz-rooted than I ever thought just casually listening to it.

I never did LDS but the thought of watching Dr. Who while on it would be interesting to say the least.
