1. What is the first record/tape/CD that you bought?

1. What is the first record/tape/CD that you bought?

I'm struggling to remember, but I think it was a cassette of TV themes, or something similar.

2. Who is your favorite all time band/singer?

audioscrobbler tells me Disturbed, by a long way. But Queen is definitely way up there, too, just haven't listened to much lately.

3. What is the first thing you ever owned to listen to music on? Extra points if it was an 8 track player. [Wink]

An ancient cassette player.

4. What is the first concert or live band you ever went to see?

Guns n Roses.

5. Can you recommend a good song or CD that everyone should listen to?

Well, most people don't like metal, so this may not work. But Iron Maiden's stuff that I've heard so far has been amongst the most intelligent, lyrically speaking ever. Who else could do a song about "Rime of the Ancient Mariner", for example?

2. Who is your favorite all time band/singer?

All-time? I don't know. The Hip and BNL are up there. Faith no more, Linkin park, Our Lady Peace, Finger Eleven all also occupy somewhere around the top for me.

3. What is the first thing you ever owned to listen to music on? Extra points if it was an 8 track player. [Wink]

Vinyl.

4. What is the first concert or live band you ever went to see?

Not counting nobody live bands playing at festivals and stuff, the first concert I intentionally went to for the purpose of seeing the band was Live. (The band that did Throwing Copper, I didn't accidentally screw that sentence up. [Wink] )

5. Can you recommend a good song or CD that everyone should listen to? [/QB]

Lots.

Finger Eleven - Any of their albums (specifically Tip.)
Tragically Hip - everything they did.
Barenaked Ladies - Gordon or Maroon.
Great Big Sea - everything.
Mudmen - everything.
Phil Collins and/or Genesis (both pre and post Gabriel) - everything.
Foo Fighters (or anything Dave Grohl had any involvement except the Queens of the Stone Age, really..) - everything

quote:

Any band featuring Chris Cornell

Really? I loved Soundgarden, liked Cornell on his own, but I find Audioslave to be nothing short of painful.

no idea, I was not paying attention at the time

2. Who is your favorite all time band/singer?

well, since I have not been arround for all time and have not heard all bands/singers it would have to be The Sisters Of Mercy at the moment

3. What is the first thing you ever owned to listen to music on? Extra points if it was an 8 track player. [Wink]

old beige and brown portable tape player

4. What is the first concert or live band you ever went to see?

The Sisters Of Mercy, smoke and mirrors tour

5. Can you recommend a good song or CD that everyone should listen to?

I'm sort of embarrassed by this, but it was Phil Collins. My only excuse is that I was young at the time.

2. Who is your favorite all time band/singer?
That's a tricky one as there are quite a lot of bands, but I can narrow it down to Garbage or NIN, but I can't decide between the two.

3. What is the first thing you ever owned to listen to music on? Extra points if it was an 8 track player. [Wink]

Unfortunately no 8-track. I think the first thing that was actually mine would be a hi-fi system with one of the first CD players in it. It was one that you puts the CDs in vertically and you could see them spinning around, it was cool. [Smile]

4. What is the first concert or live band you ever went to see?

The first real gig I went to would be to see Echobelly. I'd seen a few live bands before, but this was the first that I had actually paid money to see.

5. Can you recommend a good song or CD that everyone should listen to? Yes. Everyone should listen to Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt. It is a great song and is very poignant when sung by Cash.

1. What is the first record/tape/CD that you bought?

Two at the same time: Foreigner's 4 and Olivia Newton-John's Physical. Both on vinyl.

(Now, the first two CDs I bought were Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon and Genesis' self-titled album, the one with "Mama" on it. But that was much later.)

2. Who is your favorite all time band/singer?

Genesis, with Marillion a close second.

3. What is the first thing you ever owned to listen to music on? Extra points if it was an 8 track player. [Wink]

Well, it was either a "portable" stereo record player (I think made by RCA), an old Realistic transistor radio, or a Hallicrafters S-38B AM/shortwave radio that once belonged to my father. Can't remember which. I also used to have this beautiful old console radio with a "Magic Eye" tuning system, which was originally my grandmother's. Lovely piece of furniture, but huge.

4. What is the first concert or live band you ever went to see?

My parents dragged me to see Roy Orbison performing live at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. At the time, I was too young to properly appreciate it. Now I regret not having appreciated it more.

5. Can you recommend a good song or CD that everyone should listen to?

The Marillion albums Clutching at Straws and Brave. Also many of the tracks on Johnny Cash's American IV - The Man Comes Around. (Yes, "Hurt," but his cover of "Personal Jesus" is good, too.)

Gotta be the Beatles in all honesty - contraversial, huh?

3. What is the first thing you ever owned to listen to music on? Extra points if it was an 8 track player.

Crappy vinyl-spinning plastic shitbox.

4. What is the first concert or live band you ever went to see?


Helix. I was about seven years old. They played some fair thing (the 'Central Ontario Exhibition', no less). My sister knew them - that's how I got in. I remember it being very loud - and they had a big gong. [Smile]

5. Can you recommend a good song or CD that everyone should listen to?

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band - 'Next'. (A cover of the legendary Jacques Brel song.)

Sure he is. He's a skilled drummer and songwriter, and a decent vocalist. Listen to his drumming on Peter Gabriel's third solo album, in which no cymbals are used. On the entire album. He and the producer cooked up the technique of using a noise gate on a snare drum; Gabriel liked the effect so much, he wrote an entire song, "Intruder," around it. [Beard of Peter Gabriel!]

Does that mean if Phil Collins released an album where he didn't play drums at all it would be the pinnacle of drumming genius? [Roll Eyes] Playing the drums without using cymbals isn't that difficult or innovative. Lots of people that can't afford a couple hundred of bucks for a cymbal do it every day. [Razz] He is a good drummer, but songwriter? One word is proof that he isn't-Sussudio.

Sorry, I haven't been sleeping well.

1. I think that it might have been the Space Man single, by Babylon Zoo. Interestingly, I just bought the same song from iTunes.

2. Enya, by miles and miles. Out of my iTunes "Most Frequently Played" list, she takes first place (Orinoco Flow, with 167 plays) and seven others in the top ten. The other two are Clannad - the band Enya was in.

3. Mac Classic. Game themes. Tetris is the one that sticks in my mind.

4. I'm not sure. Maybe when Kraftwerk went on tour. I missed a chance to see The Orb live recently, for which I deserve a polite kicking.

5. Well, Orinoco flow. But maybe Adiemus, by the 'band' Adiemus and composed by Karl Jenkins. Awesome song, where the lyrics are chosen for how they sound rather than their meaning.

1. What is the first record/tape/CD that you bought?

I bought two at the same time, actually:

Dire Straits - Brothers in Arms
U2 - Joshua Tree

Both're still great albums.

2. Who is your favorite all time band/singer?

Incredibly difficult to say. Maybe Led Zeppelin or Pink Floyd. Page and Gilmour are both gods in their own right(s).

3. What is the first thing you ever owned to listen to music on? Extra points if it was an 8 track player. [Wink]

A tape player. For cassette tapes. When I was five or so.

4. What is the first concert or live band you ever went to see?

Joe Satriani on his Strange Beautiful Music tour.

5. Can you recommend a good song or CD that everyone should listen to?

Led Zeppelin I through IV. As well as A Momentary Lapse of Reason and Atom Heart Mother by Pink Floyd.
