Here's what the fans think of the "music establishment" wait until the end....HBO edited the applause from their broadcast but we have youtube!   

 

I actually felt a little bad for Heart that night.  They made some good music in their day, but everyone there got drowned out by Rush finally getting into the RnRHoF.  Kinda wish Heart would have gotten in at another time. lol

The RRHOF did it to themselves, Rolling Stone punished Rush for not doing any interviews, they pushed the induction back 14 years, the fans just got more and more restless, signing long petition lists. Then in 2013, they lined up and made the trip to LA to basically tell them "up yours". Heart just happened to be at the same induction. Saw Heart do Stairway to Heaven live, was amazing, Anne Wilson, a voice for the ages.

Remember seeing them do the tribute to Led Zep.  Looked like Plant and Page enjoyed it.  Obama too! :P

Goddamn! I only like a handful of Rush songs, but I respect the shit out of those dudes. All 3 are amazing musicians, it's just a shame that Geddy Lee's voice sounds like swamp ass smells.

 

As for the topic, sadly, there is no perfect album. But, if I had to choose only one album to listen to for the rest of my life it would probably be Avenged Sevenfold's "Waking the Fallen."  I fucking loathe the metalcore genre and this was Avenged's last metalcore album. The vocals (outside of the cliche' metalcore screams) are very good. But, the guitars, and the drums on that album are fucking amazing.

That's what's so disappointing about Heart currently. I'd consider seeing them live (if the tickets were free and the concert was next door) if most of their set wasn't covers (mostly Led Zeppelin.) They have more than enough solid material to carry a full headliner spot, but they opt to go the covers route.....Shit, give me a solid hour and a half of "Barracuda." That riff is a fucking monster.

Music is so subjective and there different albums for different moods.  Here are a few that I love.

 

Floyd-Dark Side of the Moon (when I want my brain to escape)

Foo Fighters-The Color and the Shape (when I want to energize)

Miles Davis-Kind of Blue (when I want to chill)

Prince-1999 (when I want everything) My first and favorite Prince album. Haters just don't understand the brilliance and the concept of it all.

 

I am at my happiest when the wife and kids are gone so I can sit in the sweet spot of my system, have a "few of something", turn it up, and let my mind go.

Euphoria Mourning by Chris Cornell

 

Cornell was known as a rock singer because of Soundgarden, but the guy could wail on some soulful bluesy stuff too.

 

 

 

Not on this album, and at the risk of going all High Fidelity, Sunshower is top 5 for me.

Saw them backing up Metallica this past summer, good stuff.
