I liked the performance. It was interesting the way the drum kit was set up.
Yeah, I'm a fan. You have to respect everything he's accomplished at such a young age. He has a unique style, I don't care for everything he does, but some of his songs just knock it out of the park. His live versions of Ball and Biscuit, and Death Letter are just amazing and full of energy. And then the opposite of those, We're Going To Be Friends is an incredible tune as well.
I did not mind hearing a loud rock trio on the boob tube.
Bass, drums, amps, pedals.
Seriously? What's wrong with this? He's even playing a Tele. Some of you guys are a tough crowd to please.
I thought the medley was fantastic. Loud toneful telecaster? No? Really?
Some of his White Stripes stuff leaves me cold, but not much, and usually only because of whatever he’s doing with a whammy pedal. But the dude’s a major talent and an innovator who loves gear and found success being different.
This is TIGHT. You don't like this? That drummer is a boss.
Well said. And true.
I'll have to check out those performances. Thanks for shouting it out. He does his own thing. He clearly has the respect of his peers across a lot of genres. So, there is clearly something there from an objective point of view.
Also, I like scrolling past threads where people are enthusiastic about any given subject, rather than weighing in about what I don't like about said subject and trying to crap all over their good time. Obviously, that is just me.
as my future spouse told me when we first announced our intentions "
" Take it or leave it , Sparky, cause this is the real deal either you do or you don't "
I also like Hound Dog Taylor, RL Burnside, Lightnin’ Hopkins,
rather than the sequenced layered pro-tooled lip synced drivel nicely put.
Dude loves his job!! ❤️
I really like him.
Excellent work indeed. His first piece included a cover of "Jesus Is Coming Soon" written in 1928 after the 1918 "Spanish Flu" pandemic and very contemporary today. Great homage to Blind Willie Johnson and superb cover. Who else is covering 1928 blues songs....?
Extremely tight especially since he got the replacement call the day before. They were tight on every level.
He never did become Jimmy Page. He's just not playing any good runs, rifs or notes that make sense or sound good if they don't make sense!. Now if he acted like he does, but played well, with soulful, good runs, distinct notes etc I could maybe buy in. It sounds like a lot of random notes to me. As do his changes in the song also! I was actually thinking when he changed to a totally different song style in the middle of a song last night; "I wonder if he just closes his eyes, picks a note, no matter what key he WAS in, for the "bridge" he just started?"
Tele with a bigsby...
Unique doesn't automatically = good.
A cool customer indeed but not for me, aside from a few tracks.
Do you like Sonic Youth?
I love it. I am a fan for sure. I love his energy and sound. I love music that feels urgent.
Like him or not, you hear the tone and you immediately know who it is. It's like when you hear a song and immediately know its Brian May, Bob Mould, or Jay Mascis.
Elephant is a masterpiece.
I think I have a new image in mind for the bulk of the forum:
big fan here... my wife got up the youtube performance of SNL a few mins ago... i like it...
i was lucky enough to see the white stripes play in 2005 in amsterdam at the heineken music hall... it was fantastic...
apparently the late, great john peel always carried a small brief case with his fave singles... upon his death it was revealed that he had more jack white material in there than any other artist... good enough for john peel - good enough for me..
