Music thread for all you old hippies (vanity, oh yeah)
some former hippie

Posted on 03/16/2013 3:31:44 PM PDT by West Texas Chuck

Who among us used to be one of those long-haired flea-infested dope-smoking denizens of the rock concert world?

Guilty. And recovered.

Post up some old tunes for a Saturday night.

I was never all that much a Dead Head, but this song always meant something to me, I can't exactly put my finger on what. Its just so simple and captures something from those days so long ago.

Old dead (no pun intended) Jerry and his band.

I am right there with you brother. The “Dead” were some group. Recovery makes it all more appreciable. I am heading out to “Bethel Woods Center”, site of the original 1969 Woodstock festival, for an Irish folk concert momentarily. Happy St. Patrick’s Day to ya.

Yeah, if I hadn’t cleaned up, I might not be here to annoy the mods.

I got a few dead pals who went just a few steps too many down that Highway to Hell.

Happy St. Patty’s back at ya.

Saw many that were loved go down that highway. Many were just doing their duty in Vietnam and could not handle what they saw once they came home. Miss them all. They were the best of our best, and could not adjust.

The Scorsese documentary of The Band, The Last Waltz, raised the bar for concert documentaries through the roof. Unlike most, it is a good movie even if you never heard of The Band before.

Animals - House Of The Rising Sun 1964

The White Buffalo - The House of The Rising Sun (Sons of Anarchy Version)

Both are brilliant. Heck the Animals could probably read music.

Yeah, I'm the Brasilian music guy. Doesn't mean I don't love the genius of the classics, I just can't find comparable today.

Cheers!

Oh mang, I ain't heared that in at least 30 years. My only recourse at this point, is A Classic. Chew on that for 17 minutes and 6 seconds.

I was an oddball hippie, always very Conservative. Learned to play (sort of) lap steel one day, and played this tune at the first Milwaukee “Be In.” We were the big hit of the show!

Slipknot is pretty bad. The 2000s was a dark period for music. Terrible radio bands designed for 10 year olds like Creed, Nickelback and Linkin Park, old geezers like RHCP and U2 running on fumes, etc. Luckily it’s a new decade now and all the stale remnants from the 90s are finally fading away.

By far and away my favorite Dead tune is “Box Of Rain,” but there’s not a single decent YouTube, the studio recording is better.

So, here’s Cream instead. “Badge.”
