    I got this idea from another thread. It might be interesting to post who or what you are binge listening to during the "that which may not be mentioned" quarantine.

    I've bought 3 Johnny Hiland CD's. Great guitar playing, not at all what I was expecting. Some of it is Joe Satriani meets the Hellecasters.

    Albert Collins - I've gone crazy on Youtube and listened to a ton of his material. Great blues playing.

    Stevie Ray, Kenny Wayne Shepherd - 'nuff said!

    Whatever you do, don't use the "C" word. Either of them. :D

    I’ve been listening to my Rory Gallagher collection. If you haven’t listened to the Check Shirt Wizard album you’re missing out. Here’s the first song from it.

    In 1976 or so I had a big brass belt buckle with that ABB logo, and bell bottom jeans to go with- simpler times!

    I have the 2 disc Allmans Live at Ludlow Garage in my car CD player now.
    Raw, but boy these guys are cookin' !

    Yep -- working from home has got me listening to stuff all day. Here's the latest:

    Did a deep dive through ZZ Top's entire catalog for the first time. Honestly, the compilations do cover the highlights pretty well, and it all gets a bit redundant, but still a great band that I've frankly underrated for too long. Billy Gibbons playing is fantastic of course, but the biggest revelation to me is the terrific rhythm section provided by Dusty Hill and Frank Beard. Those guys can really lay down a groove. Love the bass breakdown at the end of I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide . . . my dudes are getting funky with it!

    I watched the ZZ Top documentary on Netflix. My biggest surprise was that the bass player is really quite good. In the studio he plays mostly root notes, but live he lets loose.

    And a thick head of hair halfway down my back. It's still halfway down my back, but not so thick anymore. :cry:

    I actually never got to have the long hair I wanted to have, say in HS.
    But I have more ( now) at 61 than you are supposed to have.

    * I used to also wear the really wide leather watchband ( with cheap Timex watch) with buckles/straps to go with ABB belt buckle.

    For some unknown reason a couple of weeks ago, I started thinking about the book The Stand. This led me to think about the TV miniseries version from the '90s, which got me to thinking about the song in the opening credits- Blue Oyster Cult's "Don't Feat The Reaper."

    This, in turn, led me to binge listen to Blue Oyster Cult. I'd never really given their catalog a thorough listening, and I was richly rewarded.

    Today is my first “mandatory” day off. I’m going to start with Pink Floyd’s “the wall”. I haven’t listened all the way through it in decades. Then probably “animals”. From there who knows.

    Chameleons UK... and this song is quite appropriate:



    (There's some nicely played eBow by Dave on this one right around 3:05, for those that are interested in that kind of thing, like me.)

    In the late '70's in College, my wife-to-be, her roommate, our drummer buddy, and me ( I had my own apt. but practically lived with them)
    used to ' Neil Out' on weekends ( did just a few times)

    This involved ( practically) chain-smoking bong hits ( and cigarettes), and non-stop listening to any form or media of Neil Young music!

    So this was Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, and solo recordings , on vinyl and 8-track!
    We would start out Friday night, go all night into Saturday >Sunday
    Real geniuses!!

    Dusty Hill is a national treasure. He should be the goal of every bass player, sure, you can play busier, but will it be BETTER? The man has impeccable taste.

    Dusty Hill and James Jamerson are tied for #1.
