I'm a sucker for an acoustic guitar...

Ran across this funky instrument, dude plays the hell out of it.

Andy McKee - Rylynn

Cool guitar, never seen frets angled like that.

I've never posted in the "best live band you've ever seen thread" or whatever because it is impossible to pick a best. No way to say one was best.

What is clear to me is the band I'd wish I've seen but never did. ELO hands down. I have tons of concert footage and it's a possibility that ELO had as good or better discipline and skill in it's live musicians as Zappa, Steely Dan, King Crimson, etc. I would go so far as to say that Jeff Lynn may have been a better Beatle than any of the Beatles. Sacrilege? Shoot me.

This may sound weird. I don't know if any of you have music in your dreams, but ELO dominates my dream soundtracks. Maybe the beat matches my heart rate or something, but for whatever reason, a large percentage of their songs tug on my soul. I believe that if it wasn't for the sunglasses and hair, Lynn could be more widely thought of as one of the most beloved and celebrated rock and roll acts of all time. Hot backup singers don't hurt either.



Electric Light Orchestra - Turn To Stone




ELO-Strange Magic

I decided to cancel my self challenge of listening to each XM station a week. It started with Magaritaville a month ago and it's still there. I'm further down the country/reggae/island genre than I've ever been. Something is wrong with me. I'm broken. I ordered a John Prine cd from Amazon and added a maragrita machine to my wish list.

Not broken,just need re calibrated.This might help. As for the margarita machine,remove it from your wishlist and slide it into your cart and enjoy,in moderation of course. smile.gif
