    never knew it either
    found this concert w an all girl band that is pure fire
    always liked his music but more appreciated his talent i guess
    have seen a bunch of live clips from him but this one is special and that band
    i'd never heard of Donna Grantis but she's on the other guitar

    Most underrated movie soundtrack ever ... and a brilliant movie that never gets any love but should.

    so the birth of the 60's changed the culture into populism which popped like a blister in the sun in 69 birthing the last rise and fall of western civilization
    previously the 50's were really an extension of the 40's which because of the ww2 cultural pause were still the 30 which really was the twilight of the golden age of the 20s.
    when the culture got a taste of power
    and global indoor cooling birthed external global warming
    its when everyone wanted to be cool
    but now that's hot
    the music that dominated was the invention of the crooner
    there is a secret to crooning
    crooning was like a secret society in a lot of ways
    it was a way for any dude regardless of money, looks, talent, brawn, or class could beat any of those other guys when it came to the ultimate prize
    the one that hurts the most to know you got beat by someone you consider inferior

    Oh wait, why did I think this was Angel Heart and not To Live and Die in LA?
    I think I saw those two movies in the same night when I was a kid.
    Angel Heart has a great soundtrack, mostly jazz so some of yall would love it more than me.
    But then there is this gem by good old Johnny Favorite.

    Check out the BeeGees documentary on HBO.
    Fucking awesome. Really done well.
    Everyone thinks they created disco, but all they did was morph into the cultural zeitgeist.
    They were so much more, ultimately. And ultimately, a sad story, too.

    They are one of the most american bands of the spanish rock scene.
    By american I mean authentic. Like the bands coming out at the time or just shortly prior.

    Most bands either ape an American style going completely overboard.
    Caifanes were my favorites but they were obviously trying to be the Cure at first.

    Others make a bigger deal of being mexican or argentinian rock band or whatever over being a rock band and need to have native instrumentation or 'deep' lyrical content.

    These guys felt similar things we were feeling in the late 90s.
    And I spent a lot of time south of the border there.
    Made my share of wrong turns.

    enjoy Kinky, Zoe, Campo, Juanes, Babasonicos and of course Mana
    picked up most of it w shazaam or watching late night Central American tv
    yeah a lot of bands are obvious imitators especially in the goth arena
    Rosarito used to have a great annual day of the bands outside on the beach of Rosarito hotel that i caught a couple of times
    fuck that was fun and what a party!
    will have to check out Caifanes

    i watched it and really felt for the guys
    sure they were primping and preening in the bright lights but they probably didn't deserve what they got either
    i remember being aware of what was going on musically in the late 70s and not having anything in common w disco ever
    so to hear those voices incessantly everywhere you went was certainly monotonous
    and they probably went all in a bit too much w the tight suits and bare chested gold chain thing lol
    i had already lived though the Elton John years when that was pretty much the only music on radio but i loved Elton
    so i was happy to see it end when Bee Gee music was forced off the scene
    still there's no denying in retrospect what a real talent they were and how they managed to endure w decades of success
    i like how they included bands like coldplay in how they made their points about backlash
    had to be devastating to go from kings of the world to outcasts in a micro second

    For me, they were always around and part of the 60s, 70s music of my heyday. I sure wasn't a disco guy...got thrown out of many discos back in the day. Not the place for a rowdy long haired hippy in bibbed overalls.
    To those that loved it though, they were a force to be reckoned with...but Beatle/Nilsson/CSNY,
    et al, fans, the Bee Gees were background noise on the box.
    Now, I realize how unique and incredible their sound was...and some of their songs were just pure songwriting and vocal gold before disco ever appeared.
    It's similar for me as I used to think "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" was the worst hokey bullshit imaginable...
    Now, I think it's absolutely precious and beautiful and a part of the fabric of Americana, just like Jackie was.
