Pretty much need to just close this thread now. Pretty tough to follow that.
First song I learned to play
Proud dad moment. My youngest daughter has just added drums to her musical interests (guitar and keyboards). She was playing Saturday night at another of the jams we do a few times per year. This is from our annual Uncle Sam River Jam. Just a really short clip, its the only one I took, was too busy enjoying watching her. She is doing a great job holding her own with all of these guys, some of whom have been playing way longer than she has been alive. They love having her there and she just soaks up their advice like a sponge. You can see Keenan (middle) talking to her...just bringing her along. It's amazing how quickly she picks up an instrument.
was a real fan,.. then Billie Joe got sensitive, developed a social conscience, and their music turned to shit,.. the album Dookie is especially good. Green Day is the last group that I liked, 1995, haven't much cared about anybody's new music since them
Before any of you music nerds start in on me, yes I know this is a Sam Cooke song. I just think Otis did it better, a LOT better. It really pisses me off that he died at twenty fucking six! Especially since if I had to guess I'd say I was 6 or so the first time I heard this. To think of what else he could have given us to listen to?
Damn life, it sure is cruel sometimes
You're right. Otis was a musical artist who left us way too damn early. Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay was my favorite song that he recorded.
And i think the last one released, it was for sure released after his death. To each their own but it would rate near the bottom of his work for me just because of how commercial it has become. He has a ton of MUCH better work in my opinion.
