Oh, I read the AMG site. That's damn near my homepage. I just wanted the personal touch from you and LABF.

I'll probably pick up a few this week sometime.

I thought you probably knew about it , but just in case you didn't...

Speaking of LABF (because I know he's a Tubes fan) Has anyone heard that new live Wild In London? If you have, whatcha think of it??

I've been listening to the album, Bat Country by Avenged Sevenfold. It's awesome.

That's not to say I don't own any.....here's what I have in the way of Zappa:

FREAK OUT - the first installment. It actually has some pretty nice sounding stuff on it musically without going over the top. That's a minor miracle given Zappa's oft repeated mantra "The modern day composer refuses to die"...spelling it out from the very beginning the kind of musical snobbery that says this will never condescend to being 4/4 stuff. Of course the humor is there from the get go as well. I like it because it has some pop elements on it to be honest with you...songs like "You Didn't Try To Call Me" & "Any Way The Wind Blows" balance out the indulgent 12 minute "epics" quite effectively IMO. ABSOLUTELY FREE has a couple of interesting songs on it that makes me keep it in my collection, but besides LUMPY GRAVY (a disc of atmospheric tones) it's the weakest FZ CD I have IMO.

WE'RE ONLY IN IT FOR THE MONEY - Is a vicious attack on the peace & love crowd....from the cover on down. As Zappa's answer to SGT. PEPPER, who knew Frank hated hippies so much? "Who Needs The Peace Corps?" is indicitive of the set....It's basically a collage of sounds and some songs and , for some reason, years later reminds me of something not so dissimilar to a Negativland CD.

YOU ARE WHAT YOU IS - Another vicious CD, but this one probably has the musical aptitude you're looking for as well on it. I consider it his best work and a lot of it still holds up in terms or music and content...if I had to recommend one to anyone, hands down this one would be it....it's very solid.

A SHIP ARRIVING TOO LATE TO SAVE A DROWNING WITCH - Yeah, the Valley Girl one...it's a skimpy release but what's on it is pretty good stuff...if you liked the single, you'll like the album.

There, I kept it as short as I could...hope the rambling helps...BTW I've never heard any of the SHUT UP AND PLAY YOUR GUITAR or the YOU CAN'T DO THAT ON STAGE ANYMORE series but by the descriptions I've been given of them, they might be what you're looking for as well. I'd also check out the AMG site for this which has some very accurate write ups on anyone in music...that could help you out also.

For you Zappa fans...check out Mike Kenneally. You all are probably familiar with Mr. Bungle already, but their another modern take on Zappaism.

I was a Tubes fan back in the day, but about the only thing I listen to for pleasure nowadays is jazz/fusion stuff.

Alicia Keys Unplugged -- http://www.mtv.com/overdrive/index.jhtml

I love Alicia. Even better with a real band instead of the crap programmed stuff on the album. R&B DEMANDS a drummer and bass player dammit.

Plus, there's nothing sexier than a beautiful woman who's a great musician.

I agree to an extent, but they have to do music that doesn't suck, which eliminates Alicia Keys(and Michelle Branch for Hogan.)

Nothing better than chicks in rock bands that play bass, or any instrament but it seems as the bass guitar is the choice instrament.

Any fool could play any instrament, but you have to be a bit better than that to actually be in a band.

I'm unafraid to admit my guilty pleasures DenFan...she's one of mine.

Speaking of chick bass players...The Ponys have been around my area quite a bit since last November....seems Buffalo is a frequent stop....I may have to check them out again some day.

Of course...I have to mention The Donnas for the Disco Man WWWWwwwwwwwooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

any potential future trips to Cleveland?

I'm going to see system of a down on September 26th, and after paying 105 dollars for 2 tickets I'm about sick and tired of this big band big venue crap, time to hit the grog shop or beachland up again for a good time.

It may be the easiest to pick up and play, but it takes a lot more than picking it up to be able to play in a band.

I wish....I had The Pietasters ask me repeatedly if I was heading to Cleveland for their show next month @ the Grog Shop...but I don't think I can swing that (wish I could)....other than that, I've seen nothing.

I'll keep checking though and let you know if and when I'll be coming out.....much better selection of bands coming in there than in my area.

I'm sure those trips to Bronco games are hurting the concert scene for you, but I'll keep an eye out for anything still.

The fuel costs kill the long concert trips more than anything else.....road trips are just not all that possible with 3 smack gas.

That's true, the guys that went down to Columbus for the OSU-Texas game on Saturday spent between 40-60 dollars just on gas...and thats just a 4 hour round trip.
