  • Concerts I've been to

    28 Mar 2007, 18:37 by JCaesar007

    Bands I've seen in concert (from best to worst):
    .38 Special - my favorite band, they kicked all kinds of ass, every song was utter perfection
    Ted Nugent - the greatest guitarist by far that I've ever seen, and very politically incorrect, he's my idol
    Blackfoot - a lot better than I expected, 2 good guitars and a cool old Indian guy on bass
    Molly Hatchet - the lead guitar was fantastic, the rest of the band paled in comparison but they were pretty good
    Toto - they rocked out but just couldn't stand up to the southern rock bands I've seen, however the black guy with his four keyboards surrounding him was the definition of cool
    Styx - flamingly gay (except for Tommy Shaw on guitar) but they rocked pretty hard
    The Rolling Stones - probably would have been better if I hadn't been up in the nosebleeds, but at least I can say I saw them
    Cheap Trick - pretty good, the 5-necked guitar was pretty cool
    The B-52s - they kinda sucked
    Franz Ferdinand - they sucked all around except for that one song in Guitar Hero…
  • Music for the journey

    Last September I had an (almost) epic journey through western Europe (namely: Ireland, GB, Spain, France). Back then I compiled a little list, representing the trip in a musical kind of way.

    You can actually even see something of the trip at
    Flickr.com

    Well, today I am reusing it here... therefore enjoy the music for the journey:

    From the Ryanair flight ("Leaving on a jetplane"), through Ireland ("Land of green") on to the ferry ("Don't pay the ferryman") and then by bus ("Hit the road Jack") right into the "Streets of London".

    Finally we are "Southbound Again" and it might seem like a "Magic Carpet Ride", but then we are going to listen to the "Spanish Guitar". Yes, we are "On the road again" and we might as well sing the "Highway song".
    The way is: "To France!". In Paris we will be "Down by the Seine".
