Clive Bunker was in a short-lived band called Jude with Robin Trower, after Trower left Procul Harum. Just a hint.

When I was a kid I preferred Barriemore Barlow, Bunker's replacement in Jethro Tull. But I've started to appreciate Bunker again in the past few years.

DM, I'm not choosy about Tull drummers, for me Tull was always an Ian Anderson solo project with a band name.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 10:18pm pacific standard simon:

One of the weirdest fan pages I ever saw was one that was half fanatical Grateful Dead stuff and half right-wing rants and demands that The Dead recant their support of the left.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 10:19pm Droll:

I think the jumpsuit uniforms with the letter A gave me the impression everyone in a jumpsuit is a hired sideman, the guy with bug-eyes and a flute is the one to pay attention to.

Chung King track unclicks itself each time I click the star, is there a remedy?

Droll, excellent. Let the not caring commence.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 10:26pm Dave Mandl:

I abandoned Tull long before the jumpsuits. And really they weren't just Ian Anderson. The band, especially the drummers, were always extremely important to the group.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 10:27pm David L.B. is RRN63:

fleep: If you look @ you Faves on your Profile page - you'll see they're there (pretty sure) - & the ☆s will 'fill in' later. Doesn't help keep track of them (not 'filling in') of course...perhaps even Wizard Kenzo's powers are limited by Iluvatar (that's Theology)...

Had to stop cooking and come back here to agree about this drummer. Spiffy stuff!

Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 10:32pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Twenty-some years ago, my friend and I were at the Museum Of American History in Washington. In the agricultural room, he pointed to a plaque that mentioned Jethro Tull. We had a good laugh just then.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 10:33pm Dave Mandl:

@Tome: That's Tony Iommi on guitar, but the band is lip-sync'ing.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 10:33pm David L.B. is RRN63:

I know but just seeing Tony with the left hand strat!!!,, and he was with the band what like a month or so? .. or lip sych for sure that is directly from the first "This Was" record...

Iommi was in the band for about a week.

I decorated my first apartment with spools for tables; sides decoupaged with my dad's empty Camel unfiltered cigarette packs. And kept a woodburner on hand for guests to burn art work on the top. Eventually upgraded and had a friend surface the tops with faux leather formica.

Dinner still burns my lips, but my Sriracha bottle is getting low. Is it true there's going to be a shortage in 2014? Should I stockpile?
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:15pm pacific standard simon:

I've already put aside an extra bottle, just in case. Now I'm wondering if it should go sideways.

@RRN63 - I figured out that your link was a goof pretty quickly, but was entranced by another link at the bottom of the same page:

Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:22pm Droll:

pss, If the Sriracha requires decanting, it is past the "Best By" date.

fleep, Have you ever tried ketchup in phở? They don't call it "Hipster Ketchup" for nuthin'. Accept no substitutes.

I like to mix sriracha with ketchup for french fry dipping.

@fleep & RRN63: When a star looks like it's unclicked itself, fear not: it's just an illusion that happens when the DJ makes an edit to the song info. It'll fill back in in 54 seconds or less!
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:30pm Droll:

If I could get a rejection letter from Fahey, I'd frame it. They (The Industry) haven't returned tapes since the 60's, and written individual rejections since the 70's, or any notification at all since the 80's.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:31pm Dave Mandl:

Kenzo: So it's my fault. Figures.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:32pm fleep:

Droll, Sriracha: chilis, sugar, salt. Avoiding the latter two means if I want heat, I just dice up a jalapeno.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:32pm Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

P.S. I've got my jerk seasoning, kalonji, and homemade pineapple habanero sauce goin' right now.

54 SECONDS?! [Rolling eyes] I thought you used "technology".
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:32pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- I think Irwin said Fahey told Mogerman to get a particualr kind of Therapy. Not exactly creative mentoring...
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:32pm pacific standard simon:

Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:35pm tepid charger:

If your an artist being asked to give encouragement to an aspiring artist, it's a tough call. I seem to remember a story about Jon Bon Jovi, while employed as a janitor in a recording studio asking Bruce Springsteen for advice (which was not encouraging). So, depending how you look at it....Springsteen might have just been trying to protect us all from Bon Jovi. And of course, Bon Jovi will never let Springsteen forget it.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:37pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- I have found that Artists have enuff ego invested in their own particular Vision that they don't always relate to Another's...which makes sense in a way - because they have chosen to do it *this* way - not some other guy's - if you see what I mean...
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:38pm pacific standard simon:

I've been reading the biography of Richard Brautigan lately. It makes it pretty clear that if you were a writer looking for advice or encouragement, you would be making a big mistake talking to Brautigan.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:41pm Dave Mandl:

Professional jealousy, I guess. Not a huge surprise, though many successful artists are generous and encouraging to the new kids.

'The best advice is __ advice @ all.' - John Cage
...Like - if I were to show the rudiments of Guitar to anyone, I would start by saying do what makes sense to you anyway; Bach wrote for lute, not guitar: to quote Austin Powers - it's history is it's been the village bicycle - everyone's had a ride...
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:42pm pacific standard simon:

And to wrap up that thought, I would never put sriracha in pho, but I do have a few drops on my poached eggs in the morning.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:43pm Pintos and grease:

Yes, personal vision probably clouds all serious artists perspective. But if, from experience, you know that you have just heard (or seen) crap, you know you'll be hated for saying so, or worse, lie to fella', likely sending them into a goose chase life of hardship and frustration. Like you mention, it can be just a simple matter of ego that gets between any reasonable criticism.

DM, At first I thought the same thing, but the most humble musicians who will break down everything and show you for free (YT has dozens of examples). They have no secret to keep: Van Halen sounds like Eddie regardless of the gear. Ditto Beck, Belew, May, Holdwsorth, Snakefinger, B.B. King, Fripp...
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:48pm Lil' T-Bird Ford:

Clapton made an telling statement in the beginning of his career, explaining exactly what settings he used to get his sound...as if that information was going to help ANYONE play as masterfully as he. It wasn't the treble setting that made Clapton a legend.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:50pm Dave Mandl:

Keith Richards's comments on his 5-string guitar playing in his autobiography were interesting. He said thousands of people have tried to copy his stuff but couldn't because they were using normal 6-strings with standard tuning.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:50pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- than again, knowing he was fiddling w/ the tone knob *does* make a difference!...The accepted wisodm now is that if you have the stuff to begin w/ - it takes 10,000 hours to master anything: this characterizes the Coltranes & Hendrix's: they are inseperable from their instruments...

It was Nigel Tufnel's volume setting, however, that made him famous, and is the secret to his tone. One of my amps goes to Infinity, but it's actually impedance, not volume...

I would tend to claim they are inseparable from their *talents* and discipline. They could pick up any store bought instrument and make it come alive with sheer virtuosity. Hendrix did a lot of electronic tricks with the circuitry too, of course.

True, because the student cannot help himself.
Avatar Sun. 12/29/13 11:57pm David L.B. is RRN63:

- After the Student has come, sure...

You can't just practice though, you also have to experiment. I find a lot of young students get stuck practicing the small collection of things they learn and never try to sound like the musicians that inspire them because they think they're not ready for that page..
