And both Keith and Brad can play massive guitar!!!! OMG, they are soooooooooooo talented....and we might be at the Jonas Brothers concert next month, my girls love them....and they are my account. LOL

Not really into country but Robert Earl Keen is classified as such. And he is up on my favorite list and have seen him several times.

Is anyone here going to All Good in WVa next month?

Oh, sure it grooves! I'm not hitting All Good, but the line-up looks great. The headliners are a given, but I've see Lesh, Widespread etc . plenty of times. What it'd be excited about, is checking out MMW w/Scofield, as well as Lettuce. The funk will be brought!

I just can't do country either I respect the musicianship of many of them, as I play a Fender Telecaster myself, but I just can't get into the mainstream country sound. I like Bluegrass and love artists like Bela Fleck. I even like cross-over stuff like the Eagles and Neil Young, and a lot of southern rock and blues. But the popular country stuff I hear today really does nothing for me.

I also can't stand John Mayer (not country I know), but the guy is insane on guitar. He released a John Mayer Trio live CD that is killer ... but put him in his pop music context, and I fall asleep.

I guess I enjoy country stars guesting in other peoples music, where I can enjoy thier talent in another context.

.
John Mayer as in "Your Body is Wonderland" John Mayer?

I did not know he was that much of a talent. Then, what is sad is, people only know him for the crap that you hear on the radio- all the little girls know him from dating that whack job Jessica Simpson and now Jennifer Aniston- I am sure the fans he has from his top 40 songs would never appreciate his guitar playing- they would not have a clue as to what they were hearing Let alone appreciate it!

I would think it would be frustrating for him to be stuck in such a pathetic mold

Totally OT!................

8 DAYS TO TYPE O!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yup, that was kinda my original response as well. I think Mayer got tired of being stereotyped, so to show his chops, he toured as the Mayer trio. He really rocks on his stratocaster! Not shredding, but a more sloppy blues stlye similar to Hendrix, Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn etc ... The Trio live CD was his big F-U to the pop scene

Look at the infamous Kelly Clarkson/Metal Skool video from a few years back. I've seen interviews since with her, and she seems like a legit fan of 80's hard rock and metal. I think she grew up with her brother listening to the stuff. I'm not saying I like her music, but it does change my opinion of her a bit when I know she respects the classics.

I am tellin' ya- The guitars in Tripping a Blind Man by Type O- are FREAKING crazy- very GROOVY! It stinks b/c there is no video for the song. It made me stop breathing for a few seconds when I heard it!

I mentioned page or 2 back that when I heard it for the first time- It brought me to a whole other place, it could have been the moon, not sure though! But it was a GOOD place...and I liked it!

I can't beleive how addicted I am to their music right now. I can't stop listening. I was talking to myself just yesterday I do that often....and I thought, self, I can't believe how many levels they can have in just one song! I never thought that way about a band before. I think if you really love a band- you can feel it.

You know what really stinks- I cannot IMAGINE not feeling transported when you listen to music- some people just "like" music- and yay, they hear a song on the radio that they like, woo who..........but to not want to hear music that you really love constantly, is like starving yourself...... That sounds deep.....

Love it. You would all get along very very well with my DH. Anyhow, one of our favs for a long time now is Floater. Don't know if you've ever heard of them they are out of Oregon and have been around for a LONG time but never went mainstream. Check them out if you like floater.com some of the live videos take a minute to get going but once they get started their good.

I remember while back I read that the HOB was not going to have any more (good ) bands playing there- as in metal bands- does anyone remember hearing that?

I just checked the HOB event calendar and Opeth is going to be there on 10/21!

I think I would plan a trip just around that concert !

I also see Demon Hunter will be there- buuuuuuttt- not much into the christian music scene-

I know exactly where you're coming from. I'm not the biggest TYPE O fan, but Bloody Kisses is a masterpiece. The mood/vibe was great. I always though Goth metal took itself too seriously, and here was a killer concept that wasn't afraid to go over the top and cynically poke fun at the entire genre. I also own October Rust,which I enjoy, but it can't hold a candle to Bloody Kisses.

The rise of MP3s is slowly leading to the death of the concept ablum, and for that, I'm really sad. Pop bands are focusing on once decent single and an album of filler, when I'd rather have a flowing concept album that may not have a hit single at all.

There are people who'd rather listen to 'greatest-hits' and muzak in the background, while I'd rather sit back, enjoy the liner notes, album art, lyrics, etc. and take in an album in its entirety.

Judas Priest's latest, Nostradamus, is a 2CD concept set. It's a little over the top, but it's one of thier better efforts.
