The Music Thread

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

With The Hot Band. Why does that have to be so long ago? I feel really old now.

I just heard this today. My favorite of his was "On the Road to Freedom" with Mylon La Fevre. I still have that record. And, of course there's the classic "A Space in Time" as well. So long, buddy.

I was just listening to a Ten Years After CD a few days ago, and
the next day I see that Alvin Lee had passed away. Spooky.

Well now, I'm going to give the Beav a teeny tiny break because of his youth.
He might turn out better in the coming years, though I wouldn't bet on it. Now
if I owned a Barry Manilow CD, I'd have hit the play button ASAP, but I don't.
I could buy one, but that would only put a few pennies in Barry's pocket and
I don't want to encourage him. And the worst of Barry is mostly over with, I
hope, I hope, I hope.

I just now heard about Richie Havens. Playing on XM right now.
Our musicians are departing at an alarming rate. Sad.

I guess if they held Woodstock now it would only last
a day, maybe a short day. Oh well, time keeps passing.
Yep, the Dead played at Woodstock. 8-)

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield handed over command of ISS to Commander Pavel Vinogradov yesterday. He returns to earth on a Soyuz today.

Before leaving he released the first music video recorded in space, David Bowie's Space Oddity.



Be sure to view that in the larger size, BTW.

Are we off the hook for Celine Dion yet?

Let's be honest here. What this video really needs is some Muppets.

Well a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Considering
everything, it's not all that bad, but you can't beat the original. :thumbup:

Absolutely not.

Agreeing with Vrede. It's really cool that Chris is sharing his experience- the power of social media. Think of the youngsters being introduced to David Bowie; broaden the little buggers' horizons.

<sigh> it's bittersweet for those of who believed, fifty years ago, that space travel would become commonplace in our lifetime.

P.S. Muppets in the video. :thumbup:

And if paying back the debt of Celine ever ends, it will be time
to take up the Rush debt. This is going to go on for some time. :think:

A very long time. Don't forget the Beib. (Hey, there's no hurling emoticon.)

I completely forgot about Justin. Put him in the mix and this thing could stretch
out into the 22nd Century. O, Canada. Thank goodness Barry Manilow is an
American.

We are not taking the blame for the Bieber.

It was an American talent manager that "discovered" him, and American corporations that made him a star. If it weren't for them, he'd be just another Tim Horton's employee posting self-made YouTube videos from his mom's basement.

I figure that Rush is, er, carbon neutral. Their good stuff up to 1982 balances out what they've recorded since.
