Once you get to
Jimi is God then you are 7.1 on the Dawkins scale.
Beck is God then you are 7.2 on the Dawkins scale.
Page is God then you are 7.3 on the Dawkins scale.
Clapton is God then you are 7.4 on the Dawkins scale.

Once you are the dog in the picture you are 9 on the Dawkins scale.

Right now I am looking forward to seeing Larkin Poe live on Sunday.

Rebecca is lovely and all that but Megan is some killer on the lap steel guitar.

Her non-mainstream songs are all about depression, death, near-death spiritual experience, ghosts, suicide etc. However, reading the lyrics while listening to the group's songs is strangely uplifting.

My wife and I are huge Clapton fans! Over the years we have seen four of his concerts, once in the UK, once in the Netherlands and twice in the USA.

Phenomenal artist and guitar player, but in all honesty, quite an arrogant git on stage as well. In the sense, he hardly interacts with his audience. He comes, plays his songs, he is always very very good life, and then he leaves. That is it.

We went to see Paul Simon farewell concert last year and apart from the music being outstanding, Paul talks to the audience, interacts with the audience.
Artist like Jackson Brown and Robert Cray, apart from being brilliant musicians, are true entertainers. They are at their best at relatively small, intimate concert halls.

We saw Jackson Brown perform solo at the Stiefel theatre in Salina, KS.
This is a gorgeous little, early 1900 restored back to original style theatre.

jackson brought a bunch of guitars and a piano. He came on stage, started talking to the audience, got people to talk about his songs, why they liked a particular song and then he performed it. Completely improvised and completely naturel.

just look at the current line up in the Stiefel theatre. i would book just about each concert:

https://www.stiefeltheatre.org

We love going to concerts and there was no better place then when we lived in Kansas City. The big bands and artists might be hitting New York in the weekend, during the week they all pass through in Kansas City, and some of the other Kansas/Missouri little towns. We went to see more concerts in our three years in Kansas City, then in the previous thirty years combined.

Going to these concerts in the Netherlands is a bit more tricky. You need to buy tickets 6-9 months in advance. And they are ridiculously expensive. Our Paul Simon tickets cost Euro 200, admittedly very nice seats, but still, that is silly money really.

And who knows what you will be doing 6-9 months from now? So last year we bought several tickets and in the ned, we could not go. Luckily, there is a good website where you can sell and buy electronic concert tickets. And you are not allowed to add more than 20% on the purchase price. So I always managed to sell my tickets for about cost.

One of my other big heroes is Ry Cooder. And somehow he never made it to Kansas City. But he was in the Netherlands last year. Of course, I got us the best seats money could buy, only to have to sell them as I was on yet another business trip at the concert date.

As with the Chiefs, we were based in Kansas City Missouri as well.

But there is also Kansas City Kansas, part of the Kansas City Metropolitan.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kansas...ropolitan_area

Kansas city Kansas isnít much to write home about we thought, it is really Kansas City MO you want to be! We lived right smack in the centre, top of Rockhill Road.

Literally, just round the corner of the famous Nelson Atkins museum. Ten minutes away from the equally famous KC Plaza.

Many Americans were not impressed with KC MO, let alone KC KS. I had great difficulties in persuading some of our staff to move from Dallas/Plano TX, where we had our HQ to move to KC. Those who did, never wanted to move back.

We found it a lovely town. Not to big, but big enough to have all the conveniences of a large town. very MidWest. Relaxed, easy going, people are still gracious. No traffic jams. Lots to see and do, big arty-farty scene. Nice enough climate. Very central for all our travel all over the USA. We loved it.

Hmm.. yeah he used to superb in concert. Of late (post-2005 or so) he sticks to a routine.

I got lucky to see 3 of the 4 Gods together on stage at MSG in December '83.

This is what I could google. http://catchagroove-kaiser.blogspot....t-concert.html But I have a wallpaper on my laptop with all 3 playing that night.

I have a theory: Most of us like the music groups that were popular during our high school and college times.

I'm 40 and I can't point to a single song by artistes/groups like Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones, Beatles, early Pink Floyd etc that I like. That's probably due to the fact that - when I was in high school and college, groups like Metallica, Nirvana, Guns N Roses, 90s Pink Floyd (after exit of Roger Waters) ruled the cassette tapes. And these are the rock groups that I prefer to listen to.

Nirvana & Metallica and some songs by Eagles.

And Kurt Cobain, what a loss of talent...

OK agreed. Eagles is pretty likeable.

A few years back, I realized that about 50% of Metallica songs are horrible. Thrash metal it is called I think - their songs were used to torture Guantanamo Bay prisoners.

Or what we grew up listening to. Too young to understand music, but used to run around the side aisles of the halls while the stalwarts of Hindustani classical vocal music used to perform at the functions of Karnatak University @Dharwad. I continue to listen to the genre, but till day I have not found the inclination for Carnatic music.

Hindi film music from 70's onwards, classic rock, and some pop - stuff that we had when we were growing up is what I continue to listen to now. And my playlist is a mix of all this. However, I dont have any Kannada songs in there though it is the language at home.

I have a decent Kannada song collection (mostly Dr. Rajkumar, Mano Murthy, Raghu Dixit songs). While 99% of Bollywood/Regional movie songs can be placed under "pop music" genre, Raghu Dixit's rock music is a breath of fresh air.

Hooked on since Enigma days and think it will stay.
