Interesting how people are asked to keep away from politics on these boards because it can be "offensive" ..... but not from religion.

Just an observation.

I miss the girls.  They gave this place that certain touch that countered the macho posturing and provided a more socialized, less competitive feel.

Censorship is counterproductive, my take.

Same here I have no clue what happened, but Ian should be unbanned.

I'll be reading this thread with interest, since this is the last stuff I want to touch by Dylan, and religion bears very little interest to me. So do we know/does he say why he became a Christian?

I seem to remember somewhere reading that Jesus walked up to him one night and said: "Why have you been resisting me?"
and so it was that Bob Dylan did not resist anymore?

Like Michael Moore, the job of people like Lydon is not to solve the world's issues, but to point to them asclearly as their mind will let them.

I hope you're being sarcastic. Michael Moore.... BAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!

She's not being sarcastic. Agree or disagree with the guy, he definitely raises some interesting issues.

Indeed that was my point.

Just listening to "I am a child" by Buffalo Springfield, VERY Gainsbourg, or maybe its the other way around.

Amen to you both Chris and Jason. There's NEVER any harm stirring the pot.

Just heard a complete version of Better. WOW WOW WOW.

and thanks for elaborating, I've been thinking aloud on this too, and only too glad I am not dreaming, you know its kind of reassuring. I am really interested in finding out Brian's legacy in other forms than the straight harmony lines. Peter Whitfield wrote a great article about Jellyfish and Brian Wilson on the Blueboard the other day. I tried to convince him to post it here, but failed Sad

The last 2 days I have been plagued by the idea of this post. I have been listening intensely to the song "Born to Run" and have made up a story in my head that it is musically inspired by the uptempo songs of Pet Sounds amongst otehr influences.

By this I mean that usually, people refer to Brian's influence in the harmony structures. Obviouslynot so in the case of Born to Run. But compositionally, it is, and maybe it is a well know fact. I havent got the foggiest, but. Take Wouldn't it be Nice, That's not me, I'm Waiting for the Day, Sloop John B, I know there's an answer. Pet Sounds, its all in the use of the drums and horns. Clarence's sax is very like the bass harmonica use throughout Pet Sounds, the bells, even the use of the bass at times. Uncanny, but there you go. of course what got me thinking was the fact that after all Bruce tokk 6 months to wrtie this song, the time it took Brian to do GV.

Watching this DVD is so revealing about the idiosyncratic interpretation Bruce gives to rock & roll. I even hear so much influence of Irish music in this album. Listen to "She's the One", can you not see the Irish dancing that can be done on that, all dictated by the piano rythm, supported by the drums later on in the song? No to mention the huge Van Morrisson feel.

Flame away!

So does one know when Bruce is touring next? I'll travel for this.
24  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Guns n' Roses new tracks on: February 22, 2006, 07:30:18 AM
The new tracks are seriously good, the ones I heard anyway.
25  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: Loose Windscreen and Alan Brightmore on: February 22, 2006, 01:49:27 AM
Seeing him playing You'reMissing on the piano and that encor on the DVD, makes me really feel like hearing a Bruce version of L & M.
