where's that old rock and roll thread part two?
A popular phenomena on you-tube is black guys listening to white music for the first time.
A bunch of people do this, and they get lots of clicks.

Led Zeppelin was an outlandish band.

Ages ago, me and Mary got psychedelic and i played her this song:

Since I've been loving you. Led Zep.
She was stunned by it. Couldn't imagine how she ignored this sort of music all her life.

It's not like she became a head-banger or anything...but she really got it.

It is an extraordinary piece of work. If you don't know it, check it out:

Led Zep was preposterous. Hard to dodge.

I dig female folk singers from the 60's.

But i also dig Tool.
I love loud and chaotic music...it soothes me somehow.
As long as it is deep.

never been a fan of hair metal bands.
i suppose i'm a snob in that regard.

There's no accounting for taste. Or lack thereof.

I love how Tool's Maynard James Keenan appears so bland.

Here is one reacting to a Neil Peart solo after seeing a John Bonham video.

Yeah, he's a freak. Three bands; a vineyard...and those videos. wtf?
The rhythm signatures are so strange; when i first heard them, i thought "I could never play this."

Here's something weird:

Some of the most creative guitar music is coming from the Saharan desert.

so many great drummers.
many of them white.
Procol Harum had one; Yes had one.
The Who may have had one. Keith Moon may not have been technically great, but he made up for it with crazy.
Cobwebs and strange:

Aw, shit, mate...

Just heard that Neil Peart had died; hours ago. Brain cancer. Really sucks. And several years younger than me. Not fair.
Maybe you already knew this when you posted that drum solo?
Just realized he died 3 days ago.

I really dig songs that are done with one take in the recording studio.
Actually, there are whole albums done in one take.

But here's a few pop hits done in one take:

I found out about Neil Peart last night when my wife sent me a text about it while she was at work.

At least I was fortunate enough to see him perform several times.

A master of percussion.
