    changing topics a bit
    ever stumble upon 70's bands doing live 30 or so years later and sounding good, if not better?
    these vids are now all about 10 years old now

    like both of those bands
    PSB were dj's iirc
    cocteau twins have several songs that hit me on some kind of ethereal emotional level
    worked for Lynne when he was a Wilbury btw
    what would life be without music?

    never could figure out what the cocteau twins were singing about and guess maybe that wasn't the point anyway
    just takes me back to a place where everything felt amazing in life
    kind of like this song

    seems like that's usually the formula
    Blondie, Heart, Pretenders etc.
    i was dating a little gothic pixie that looked a lot like her at that time w the exception of having super short hair
    met her in AA and still remains one of the strangest girls i ever had the pleasure of knowing
    and yes i did think of Harriet lol

    Don’t know how many Kraftwerk fans are out there, but I can’t believe they are finally getting some recognition from the Rock N Roll HoF.

    One can argue they were the genesis of many forms of today’s music. And to think they started kinda like a hippy 60’s jam band.

    don't think bands like New Order, Depeche, Ultravox etc. even exist without Kraftwerk
    Florian Schneider just passed last year

    That’s what I mean. And Florian passing away before the HoF giving even a whiff of recognition is a travesty.

    tbh the R&R hof is a total joke anyway
    i don't think it would have made much of a difference to his life and he possibly wouldn't have bothered going since he lived as a recluse more or less didn't he?
    i saw an interview w Gahan and Gore and they praised him and his band, i mean there's just no denying their influence on modern music
    pretty sure he knew how important he was besides they are inducting them w Jay-Z and LLCoolJ...talented guys but not exactly R&R
    after bashing the hof for years Steely Dan gave one of the best induction speeches imo
    little over a minute and at the end he says "we're persuaded its a great honor" and they walk off leaving the trophies on the stand!

    a bunch of these mash up videos out there
