Uh oh - bad juju to speak ill of the dead, which sorta includes Keef ...
Well, I'm sure you read into my tongue in cheek response enough to realize that by definition Favourite to me is actually a compliment....lol...and based on your response I'm sure you intended the same.....
No bad JuJu for either of us.....lol
Several great musicians died in 2013. Lou Reed died in 2013 too.
I'd rather hear Bill Bruford's cymbals than some curmudgeons midrange guitar tone.
Best me to it
And to Lou reed . Love some of his stuff . But seemingly what not the best person to be around from what I’ve read . Never met him ! Probably a good thing . John Lyndon is funny as hell , but probably not so much in person as well . Love some of his interviews
That's the best thing I have read all day.
Ian Anderson. Intelligent, articulate.
I’ll go with Van Morrison.
Yeah, I’ve heard he’ll get real angry and aggressive, then reach up and punch you in the knee.
Except in his case, it's the UNDEAD
No mention of Bob Dylan either! We're slipping guys. And, I believe that Noel Redding was a PITA to be around too
Ginger Baker was an old curmudgeon before he got old.
After the past year and a half, I have well earned my old curmudgeon card. I could only dream to be like today’s Neal Young.
My kind of curmudgeon.
Started at the bottom of the barrel and has been successfully digging straight down ever since.
Ginger Baker....poops sorry for the dbl post
Y'all forgot Steve Earle.
The guy's got an opinion on everything and he'll tell you about it.
Occasionally he'll play a song, too.
Sir Bob Geldof tops anyone mentioned so far. But as I am not into him or his music it may be a stretch. The one curmudgeon that I actually liked, or used to like? Ritchie Blackmore. Hands down. Although I haven't followed his music slavishly, or revered his playing to the moon and back, I do very much like his interviews (those few he made) way more than his music. And frankly, buying his DVD that came out a couple of years ago where he actually laid it all out, I found a kinship with him that was unexpected. In that he started to play guitar before he got interested in chicks and fame and all that. Nothing he has said ever, neither in print or in television or DVD I was vehemently against. In fact, he's one of the few that I agree on everything he says. It's just about people can't stand their own medicin, and wants everyone to smile all of the time. Mind you, that Ritchie was like that even when young, so it's not an old geezer stuff kind of thing. He is frank, candid, and honest about both himself and others. He confess to the Deep Purple "war" that "by and large its just us alpha males strutting about, pissing contest". He was as bad as the others.
The thing is. Don't let the offical superficial facade fool you. I've heard of more behind the scenes things, with people that are officially nice, and in public humble, but are faced with domestic violence at home, and "closet" problems, like alcohol and drugs, but they smile and laugh as fast the cameras are on. R Blackmore has never been suspect of summoning up demons at home, or domestic violence, or in and out of rehab. Neither has mr Wakeman. I'd rather trust a public - somewhat - bitter, curmudgeon, grumpy demeanor, than one who smiles and acts nice all of the time. It's like the old proto "the sad clown". Has to put a face to make everyone think you're a funny guy, and likeable, but at home you have severe problems. Robin Williams was but one.
and Andres Segovia.
When you book Rick, you must specify whether you want the rock show, the smooth jazz show, or the born-again Christian show. He is, ultimately, a very kind man and you will not hear him speak I'll of others.
