    Crossed the double yellow line
    Off to who knows
    With six sets of glory a night
    In some bar

    Love MSB! My first real concert was MSB's last concert at the Coliseum. December 27th, 1983, if I recall correctly. One of the loudest bands I've ever seen. Of course, I was on the floor, 27th row, I think.

    After the bombast of 80s hair metal and early 90s grunge then pop punk climbing up the charts, I got into this guy as I started playing guitar. The beauty and simple arrangement was a complete Aha! moment for me at 15.

    Glenn Campbell - Southern Nights
    Gorgoroth - Wound Upon Wound

    Southern Nights always picks me up when I’m in the abyss. I’m also a dyed in the wool southerner.

    Wound Upon Wound has a malevolent essence that is cathartic and energizing when I’m moving slow.

    Jackstraw, Grateful Dead, off the Dick's Picks 10 CD (Winterland 12/29/1977).

    Actually, the whole show.

    Why this one? Well, it was pretty darn good ;), but more than that, it was the main thing my son and I listened to, over and over, when we'd drive to the mountains in my truck. He was 11 or so when I turned him on to the Dead, and he got hooked big time. It brings back several layers of memories for me.

    OK, one more. I was into the Stones as a kid. Had all the albums. But Goatshead Soup did something to me. Grabbed me, still hasn't let go.

    This one never gets any attention, but I just LOVE it.

    I remember the first time I heard this one; just grabbed me at the first listen.



    And two more that have haunting and near perfect lyrics.

    It sums up how I feel about those types of organisations that would want me to follow their path / teachings.

    That’s a great song, and was written by Billy Joe Shaver with his son Eddy:

    This album and song in particular came to me 20 years ago at a transition time when I thought there was no good new music being made and the roots based music I loved was dying. It made me realize how wrong I was and there was great music out there beyond FM radio limits. It eventually led me towards many other artists and largely responsible for where I’m at musically today.

    Here's one that was put up the otherday in the best instrumental thread, i have been learning some of it the last few days, helps with feel and bending as well. To sound right you will need wah and a fair amount of delay in parts but it even sounds good without.

    This song makes me feel my age and mortality. I've been married 35 years now


    It's knowing that this can't go on forever
    Likely one of us will have to spend some days alone
    Maybe we'll get forty years together
    But one day I'll be gone
    Or one day you'll be gone

    This one really impressed me when I was young, and still does, the power in the performance just gives you chills, and the way he "spanks" that reso is amazing.

    Growing up there were handful of bands that kept me sane. The Who, The Clash, The Replacements, Husker Du. But the greatest of them was the one least well known: X

    The finest track on one of the greatest albums of all time, to me at least...
    The title track from "Under The Big Black Sun":
