    Not for me. I was buying Genesis from their early years and "grew" with the band. The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway was their absolute best for me, although some may find it pretentious. I stopped buying after And Then There Were Three, they had slipped too much toward 'commercial' rock for me.

    What an interesting thread. I had read GILD's very first post (at the time it was posted) and decided this was not for me so I skipped it since. Wrongly.

      I think I'd agree, especially from the songwriting side of the equation. I just like the musical execution of those pieces on Seconds Out! a bit more, maybe because I got to see them on the tour where they recorded the album. I'm not a huge Phill Collins fan, but he was on top of his game during those concerts.

        Eddie Van Halen turned 50 this week.

        Back in the mid 80's I hung with the Stand Up Comedy crowd in Portland, Oregon. Johnny Johnston, Mr. Bagpipes, did a killer rendition of "Eruption" into "You Really Got Me" on the pipes. (The pipes on his intro page sounds like it may be the transition between the songs).

        I can't hear VH without thinking of that routine.

            The Seconds Out version of "Los Endos" was a great example of the "New" Genesis really putting out LIVE.
            I need to get that album on my computer. I only have it on vinyl and haven't listened to it in 10 years.

              I just read this entire week is slated for the celebration of 60th anniversary of Bob Bob Marley's birth on February 6, 1945.

              Google is full of articles.

                  Thanks GILD, for prompting me to listen to two CDs that have been gathering way too much dust. One by Buddy, one by Don.

                      They're not all dead.

                      32 years after "Killing me softly with his song", Roberta Flack is alive and kicking at 66 today.

                      Then again, she's not exactly rock.

                          Here's a music list from today's news:

                          Friday, February 11, 2005 · Last updated 7:00 a.m. PT

                          Dee Snider's listeners have edgier rockers

                          By WAYNE PARRY
                          ASSOCIATED PRESS WRITER

                          He's not gonna take it. Dee Snider, Twisted Sister frontman and five-nights-a-week deejay on Philadelphia radio station WMMR-FM, was less than impressed when he heard what listeners of a British radio station decided were the Top 10 rock songs of all time.

                          The poll by British station Planet Rock got worldwide media coverage.

                          "It was getting picked up all over the world as gospel," said Snider, who's known almost as much for his onstage profanity as for his music. "I said, `What are we, wood? Why should we have to sit here and be subjected to some arbitrary ... list out of England?" (You can guess what the ellipses were.) "Let's subject them to my arbitrary ... list."

                          So he did. WMMR conducted an online poll for several months, and came up with a list long on Metallica and AC/DC, with classic rock and grunge mixed in. "It's a little harder, a little edgier," Snider said.

                          The Dee Snider list:

                          1. "Stairway To Heaven" Led Zeppelin
                          2. "Back In Black" AC/DC
                          3. "One" Metallica
                          4. "Freebird" Lynyrd Skynyrd
                          5. "Sweet Child Of Mine" Guns 'N' Roses
                          6. "Enter Sandman" Metallica
                          7. "Smells Like Teen Spirit" Nirvana
                          8. "For Those About To Rock" AC/DC
                          9. "Bohemian Rhapsody" Queen
                          10. "Gimme Shelter" The Rolling Stones

                          The Planet Rock List:

                          1. "Stairway To Heaven" Led Zeppelin
                          2. "Freebird" Lynyrd Skynyrd
                          3. "Bohemian Rhapsody" Queen
                          4. "Smoke On The Water" Deep Purple
                          5. "Paranoid" Black Sabbath
                          6. "Whole Lotta Love" Led Zeppelin
                          7. "Hotel California" The Eagles
                          8. "Rock And Roll" Led Zeppelin
                          9. "Highway To Hell" AC/DC
                          10. "All Along The Watchtower" Jimi Hendrix

                          For the record, no Twisted Sister songs cracked the WMMR top 10, although "We're Not Gonna Take It" and "I Wanna Rock" came in at numbers 21 and 22 respectively.

                          "The fix is in. I'm on the radio every night," Snider said with a laugh. "I wasn't pushing it, but, you know..."

                          I can't say I agree with the G 'N' R being on Dee Snider's list. I change the radio station every time I hear one of their songs.

                            10. "All Along The Watchtower" Jimi Hendrix
                            I'm impressed and see it as a sign of progress that Freebird was as far down as #4 on the Dee Snider list.

                                That's actually pretty funny. I think Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only the Piano Player was John's last overall good album. Elton John and Madman Across the Water are probably his best.

                                Okay, fess up, who all here owned the soundtrack to the movie, Friends? I did.
