Differences between Irish, British, Polish, American and other nations culture, tradition, music - loose talk

Is Roy Moore Michael Moore's Republican brother ?

As of right now it looks like a 11 to 10 vote for Kavanaugh.

The Commie Socialist sure have stirred up their tribe for the mid terms with this circus.
Doesn't matter who they had to destroy to do it.

HAHAHAHA even the Republicans can't even pass a vote in the committee stage without screwing it up. Now there will be an FBI investigation, and Kavanaugh is toast. They're going to find out all about his history as a rapist, and his career is rightfully over. We warned you repeatedly to take your time and do things properly, and instead of listening, the GOP gambled and lost badly.

Oh man, this is going to be hilarious. No investigation, no Kavanaugh. It's that simple.

Aaand bang. Two Republican senators now want an investigation, so there's no way he's getting confirmed next week.

And after all the abuse of the FBI by the orange baby and his supporters, well... well well well.

@Johnny,
Kavanaugh is a true American hero...

@Lyzko,
"Boys will be boys", is that about it? Well, I don't buy it and neither should most of America. Looks as though the Committee is going to vote in his favor, unfortunately,

so you people have gotten your wish.

But what about the country itself? Trump, to paraphrase what was once said about Hitler, has made the president great, and the presidency small.
I hope you're satisfied.
LOL

the Committee is going to vote in his favor,

It ain't over yet Lyzko.
The vote was 11 to 10 in Kavanaughs favor.
The Dems are being given another week before his appointment to be sworn in so more investigation can be done.
Now bet me a $100 that ANOTHER victim or witness will step forward next week to testify in Fords favor if I know how the Dirty Dems work to keep the circus going. lol

"Boys will be boys", is that about it?

NO witnesses, NO evidence, No recollection of where it happened, when it happened, who she left the party with....NOTTA !
All she had was an ALLEGATION !
She could have said YOU did the same thing to her 37 years ago.
So NO, it is not about boys just being boys because Kavanaugh WAS NOT even in town where those parties took place that summer and he has a witness and evidence to support that unlike Ford who has NOTHING to support her allegations.

Now be objective here and deal with the facts and not your emotions.

and he has a witness

A serial alcoholic who can't even testify in public is hardly a reliable witness.

He better get ready, because his career is finished. He can explain to his daughter why he was a drunken rapist and why he felt it was appropriate to force himself on women. I'm sure she'll be proud of him, LOL!

Watching you getting your panties all wet over the American political process is totally hilarious and something only a troll would do.

Why dont you watch re-runs of the Clarence Thomas conformation and compare the similarities, same crap, no big deal at all.

But, why is it such a concern to a Scottish expat? Besides just to troll this forum, we all can tell this by your overwhelming 15.5K posts,,geeez give us a break!!!!

Another question : When you stated that PF was the "Joke of Poland" didn't it occur to you that being the member of this forum with most posts, its a direct reflection upon you?? LOL

I prefer wilder stuff like MC5 or Patti Smith Group. Check this one out:

I forgot about those wild men, good stuff!

They certainly dont make music like they used too. Hey did you hear the new Box Scaggs CD? I was never a really big fan, but with the evaporation of decent artists around and plus its a Blues album, not bad at all!

youtu.be/bXTbg44v5m8

My vote goes to Eric Clapton as my all time favorite.

As much as I like Clapton and Cream, I never seen him live. I must have seen Jeff Beck play close to 10 times though:)

He seems to come to Chicago quite frequently.

This is for Joker,one of my favourites..

Whoa! I just copied and pasted it and pleasantly surprised:)

I didn't know this song was on YT

I wish I had YT when I was younger, but then again we didn't need it!! LOL

Clapton was a twat, sorry. Derivative and dreary. Yes he could play the guitar a bit. Mostly he stole material from various American musicians and was known to use his concerts to spread hate messages., that he 'wanted foreigners out'. Lucky for him Hendrix, from whom he stole so much material, was already dead by then.

His dreadful dirge 'beautiful tonight' mostly shows him up as a talent free control freak.

Clapton......derivative and dreary.

Can't agree at all. What you probably mean is that you don't like his playing style. Name me a better rhythm rock guitarist? Did he copy Hendrix? Nope. Not a Hendrix clone - that would be Trower, SRV etc. Nothing wrong with a Hendrix clone mind :) :) Different musical content; different styles...Clapton with his Hammond organ through-put sound, Hendrix with his Roger Meyer octavia - both brilliant musical innovations, and both at the apex of the tree.

We got to enjoy Clapton for 50 years, Hendrix was cruelly denied us. Both could create myriads of musicality, like Stockhausen or a Bernstein. Golly gumdrops. 60s Clapton and Hendrix are neck and neck as they pass the post and a photo finish is always inclonclusive. I used to think that Hendrix pissed all over Clapton, but in my old age I can't separate them as they are completely different musicians, such as Schubert and Chopin were. You can say that Beethoven and Mozart influenced Schubert, but to draw a line from that and portray Schubert as a schmuck is just lazy.

Clapton - not the life and soul by many an account; an irrelevancy though. He's not a candidate for the American supreme court. A brilliant interpreter of American R and B though.

I agree with you Dough.
Clapton has been referred to as one of the most important and influential guitarists of all time.
Here is Clapton's undeniable positive review.
Eric Clapton, CBE, is an English rock and blues guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and of Cream.

Clapton ranked second in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" and fourth in Gibson's "Top 50 Guitarists of All Time".

PS: Marty Balin. Sadly today another frontline artist leaves the stage.

Has to be one of my favorite bands for my high schools days. A space in time, what an album!

The Lees, and Leo L - all from my home town:) I must have come across Alvin Lee, we both lived in the same part of Nottingham. Very "middle-class" it were too :) :) Though we didn't know that of course..... A nondescript 2 up/2 down semi-detached costs 300,000 big ones there now:(

"Watt" was my favourite. They must of had a terrible time putting the bass player Leo Lyons back in the box after each concert. I can't off the top of my head think of a faster bass riffer:)

Hands down Hendrix was the probably the best and nobody can really touch him, but I like many different styles. Everybody has different taste. He did steal a lot of riffs from BB King, everybody did. Stevie Ray Vaughan studied Clapton growing up and wound up jamming with him and becoming friends.

What about Jeff Beck? I would say hes better than Clapton and Jimmy Page. His music is much more original and improvisational, mostly only other guitarist get into him and his songs are too long for radio. Hes a musical genius as well.

I think this is the best guitar album ever:)

youtu.be/o7ALPziEOyc

I guess, it depends on my mood, because I like heavy metal too sometimes:) No Rap ever!!! lol

"Watt" was my favourite. T

I used to drive around in my beat up 1970 Ford Fairlane jamming out this song:)

youtu.be/cwQp9CEGplE

Ten Years After doesnt get the credit they deserve.

Clapton ranked second in Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time"

Johnny Winter is a great blues player as well. Muddy Waters used to refer to him as his son.

Ry Cooder

I like his work with Malian musicians over here, like Ali Farka Toure. It's excellent.

I wonder which British musicians are most popular in the US nowadays?

Yes! I like the Talking Timbuktu album, although that's a fair few years old now. Another great Malian musician is Salif Keita.

which British musicians are most popular in the US nowadays?

No idea to be honest, maybe someone will let us know......

Ed Sheeran is massive over there. Bush are/were an interesting one, as they were huge in the US and yet unknown in the UK.

Yes he copied Hendrix

Might seem patronising to you.....Clapton is many things, but he stayed well away from playing Hendrix style licks.He was lauded as a better rhythm player than Hendrix, which admittedly is not difficult, but isn't the same performer. But obviously you haven't been listening, as you don't like him. If you don't like country or soul, then you might mistake it as dreary, but ask a guitarist what they think. If you had said Clapton's album,s were dreary then I might have let it go, but to say Clapton per se is dreary (and copies Hendrix and Dylan) shows musical ignorance . Can't say I care for 90 percent of Claptons' 80/90s albums myself, but there's no real need to put other people off though!

The first gig I ever went to was when I was about 14,in 1971 at The Royal Albert Hall,Deep Purple had released In Rock the previous year and so played most of that plus some songs from their new album,Fireball....quite an event for a young kid's first gig.Support band were Hard Stuff I think.

Many years later I saw the Coverdale/Hughes line up at Wembley and they were truly awful.....but I've seen both Trapeze and Whitesnake and they were superb.I'm a bit too young for the early Purple but I did like some of the songs mentioned but Hush was my favourite.

That sounds cracking Atch. I am somewhat perturbed that we will get a strike for going off-topic! :) My school is still standing, but they should have put a _____ under it years ago (not funny in the current climate, but it's a view shared by all who went there at the time.

Now it is a top 50 "academy." My arse:)

I've seen both line ups

Wow!

The first gig I ever went to was when I was about 14,in 1971 at The Royal Albert Hall,Deep Purple

More wow!

I was 14 - there was more chance of me going to the moon than being allowed to go to any concerts such as that. I missed Hendrix :( :( Mods - get some emoticons:(

Deep Purple when they was great. Mmmmm........
Loved Coverdale/Hughes - when they started off. Did you see Tommy Bolin Miloslaw?And Steve Morse is a nice chap by all accounts - but that's hardly the point.

It was a close run thing Doug.....Dad only allowed me to go because my friends Dad drove us there and picked us up....in 1970 Grand Funk Railroad did a free concert in Hyde Park and Dad wouldn't let me go.....the second gig I went to was also at the Royal Albert hall in 1971 and was Black Sabbath.....at their peak.....that was a real eye opener....I think Wild Turkey were supporting and my third gig was at The Rainbow....Humble Pie....

My first concert was Kiss back in "76" the Bicentennial year. Ya, I know, I was just a little snot kid then. This is before I ever heard about Led Zeppelin or got my first guitar.

I wish I still had that Kiss Army stuff, probably worth a few bucks now.

2nd concert, U.F.O and Judas priest, now were talking!

My top 10 Rock Albums, not in any particular order, subject to change of course.

Dark side of the moon - Pink Floyd
Made in Japan - Deep Purple
Phenomenon - U.F.O.
Appetite for destruction - Guns N roses
Are you experienced _ Jimi!!!!
Texas Flood - Stevie Ray Vaughan
Live at the fillmore - Allman Bros.
Van Halen 1
Truth - Jeff Beck Group
Billion Dollar Babies - Alice Cooper
Jailbreak - Thin Lizzy
Rocks- Aerosmith
Hotel California - eagles
Blood Sugar Sex Magic - Red Hot Chili Peppers

I went a bit over 10..lol

I`ll comprise a Blues list later, it will be much harder.

Good call. I'm also a big fan of Husker Du

I remember this band from H.S. days! Yep, Im surprised they didn't go mainstream as well.

Here is one out of obscurity, Lucifers Friend

youtu.be/frrMv7NvKo8

I had the 8 track tape of this...lol Check these guys out!

Royal Albert hall in 1971 and was Black Sabbath.....at their peak.....that was a real eye opener....

Im jealous! I never seen Black Sabbath or Ozzy and I dig them so much.

I forgot to add Zep to my list, yikes!

Whats your favorite guitar solo???????

youtu.be/JjPW35eot70

Michael Schenker from U.F.O is an awesome guitarist and great band as well. He has fantastic melodic solos!

Lucifers Friend

German band if I recall correctly. They had some pretty awesome ones back then like Amon Düül, Atlantis, Scorpions, Frumpy, Epitaph, Kraan and others.

Whats your favorite guitar solo?

Hard to say. I like Richie Blackmore's solo in "Strange kind of woman" on the Made in Japan album a lot. Frank Zappa's "Willy the Pimp" isn't too shabby either. UFO's "Boogie for George" is also great. Vanilla Queen by Golden Earring, too.

Speaking of Frank Zappa. Did you guys know that he played with Pink Floyd once?

Wiily the Pimp,,hahaha I had the 8track in my 70 Ford fairlane, with the mud shark and "Fido" the killer poodle. I gotta YT this one:)

Speaking of Zappa hes another great guitarist.

Scorpions

Its Micheal Schenkers brothers band.

Did you guys know that he played with Pink Floyd once?

I made it all the way to 6:02 before I started getting flashbacks! lol

What about Gillan's vocals on that!

Made in Japan was one of our favourite albums when I was growing up. Pocket money was pretty much unknown as a concept in the Ireland of those days so you generally only had a chance of getting an album as a present for your birthday or Christmas. I remember getting Led Zep Vol 4 for my fifteenth birthday :) We shared albums, lending them to each other and you'd stick them on the three-in-one sound system and record them on a cassette. Dark Side of the Moon was especially coveted in the gate sleeve. I think it must have been very expensive or something because not many people had it and that did the rounds of many a suburban semi :)

One of my friends was lucky enough to have indulgent parents who did a basic attic conversion to give Patricia and her brother a 'chill out zone'. They had their sound system up there, a couple of guitars, big cushions on the floor, and a lava lamp which was really retro even then. I remember spending a glorious summer afternoon not in the fresh air and sunshine (which is pretty rare in an Irish summer) but in the attic listening to 'albums' :) 'Horse with no Name' America, that was one of the songs we listened to that day. Do you remember that thing of listening to the same track over and over and over! I had a record player in my bedroom and started every day with Led Zeppelin, 'Rock 'n' Roll' and the minute I got home from school on it went again - I was OBSESSED with that track for a while :D

'Horse with no Name' America

What a great record. The simplest strumming chord pattern for this song is four chords - all on the second fret. The greatest records are the simplest. Brown Eyed Handsome Girl was another :)

Truth - Jeff Beck Group

A very avante garde choice there Joker. I am embarrassed to admit I had never heard that (apparently groundbreaking) record until this year :(

cassette.

Still got mine - all 3000 of them. And the sound from not a few of them beats digital recordings on my low end Sansui any day of the week.
