 I know it got the garbage played out of it in the 80's, but it's a great album......maybe one of the best of all time.........

 For those experiencing a "heartache", the last track is just what the Dr. ordered..............great stuff

Agree-

I owned the cassette  when it was released- now have the disc and play it often-

Saw REO with Styx last summer- they were not bad, but damn is Kevin Cronin looking old- of course the same might be said of me-

 I saw them about 15 years ago at The Gorge in George,WA with Peter Frampton & Foreigner...............it was the 1st time I ever saw Cronin with short hair...........great show.

 Man......15 years ago? wow.........I'm getting old

REO Speedwagon is one of those bands I could just never get into.  I think it was Kevin Cronin's voice.  Even back in 1980 when they were really popular and I was only 13, every time I heard his voice I wanted to grab him by the throat.  But hey, that's just me.  They are great musicians and Richrath is a 1st class guitarist.  I think the only tune I liked was "Riding the Storm Out."  Glad you guys enjoy them though.

I'm not trying to be al macho, but after Ridin The Storm Out. Time For Me To Fly, and I can't get enough to this day of Roll With The Changes,......

.......their lovy dovy stuff just was really hard to swallow......

"I can't fight this feeling anymore" (that was difficult to type, and if I ever said that to a girl, I hope she'd punch me......lol

Not making fun, because I am perfectly willing to serve myself up for you guys to slice and dice at will for emabarrassing crap I really like. If we are honest with ourselves, we all have songs (love-ish crap) for us to hammer each other in a fun playful really mean evil way......

OK, when I was young Diana Ross "Touch Me In The Morning" . I had the 45, and I'm pretty certain that I didn't have pubic hair #1 yet, If I wasn't playing Hockey and playing with AFX slot cars, my parents might have checked under the bed for barbie dolls.....

I had some super lame behind 45s.

Someone will remember this one.........

Loudon Wainright   

That wasn't embarrassing. I was also listening to Zappa.....Songs like Dynamo Hum, and at that age not having any clue what the lyrics meant, but the music was great. Thank goodness my Mom didn't know either. ( but lucky about it )

Embarrassing garbage like Saturday Night Fever, too young to drive, but if I'm old enough to smoke weed, I guess I have to sign my name to it.

Someone has to explain how anyone (me and my friends) can smoke pot and play Zeppelin, Joe Walsh, Rundgren, Yes, and fit Bee Gees in there. I'll rationalize it away by saying we only listened to the f#g Bee Gees because it was being played over and over on car radios, and we didn't ever actually own that crap. We played the cool garbage in friend's basement's where we could smoke pot and not be disturbed by stupid things like rules against drinking beer and smoking marijuana at age 15.

I would play Barry Manilow (pre-weed days) on the radio, and not change the channel mid seventies.........


I haven't been around in a few days. Been under the weather, stiil can't talk, but does that guy sugarhouse still hold me responsible for anyone who dare call anything "best" and who I piss him off so much in this forum? ......

Never felt that same bitterness back. I'm sure that silly stuff will fx itself. I saw he posted A "chronological history of his music" thread, and I'm sure it was decent, just couldn't sit up and go through it, but I plan to. Good for reminding me of cool garbage that I forgot and stuff I never heard........Any chance to add to the computer/I Pod library..............

Sugarhouse, hopefully all is good, and you get that there aren't arguments here, just talk.........I am going to check out that one thread of yours. I usually keep a working notepad of stuff to download or take a closer look at as far as additional new to me type stuff that I want to add to my music library......capiche?

Mugg, downloading as we speak R.Waters "Amused To Death".

the complete album. I guess it just got finished. I've never owned it or listened to it all the way through........

jmw, got somemore Cure stuff and some obscure guys that did cover songs of "Love Song:"

Damn, I need a beer after that typing/pecking.........Watching Troy.

Brad Pitt is about ready to sword rape Eric Bana.

Henry, Chicago was one of those other semi cool 70s bands that was halfway cool, some decent tunes, then they just got completely  in the early 80s

Chicago, Reo, Doobie Brothers, Styx

........all poster children of 70s bands that just were lost ships at sea flying rainbow flags on their masts....... 


I felt really sorry for Styx guitarist Tommie Shaw who just fricking rocked, and teamed up a little later with Nugent in Damn Yankees to salvage something from the stench of hanging around Dennis De Young .....the biggest ever, including G.Michael.

Well..
 
There have always been a few of us that never went for the country / western slant that is so prevelant here-

Montgomery, AL's own- 

By the way- James Young has always been my favorite member of Styx- quite underrated IMO-
Tommy Shaw was ok, but always struck me as a bit soft- maybe undeserved- just the way I always viewed him- 


Sorry to get off topic, but that's how threads like this go-

If you never knew ahead of time what Tom. Shaw looked like (david Spade's twin), then you wouldn't have as much trouble believing his was the strongest guitar in that band.......

Sorry to rib ya about Bama, but had to after we talked a few times on the phone.


Oh garbage!!!!! Now I have Coach Jimmie Johnson wearing a Nascar uni next to a race car pushing pills to make his pecker bigger......At that age, isn't viagra, and just getting it up at all enough? 


Hey Dsn, you actually got snow, didn't ya?

You're probably right- he always looked like the kid who had yet to hit puberty- no doubt he can play-  

As for the snow- we got none, but about 50 miles inland got a bit-
I got my fill in Indiana, but I do still miss it occasionally-

I noticed the Extenze car at Daytona last week- kind of funny really- of course the sponsors know their target audience, I suppose-

 Understandable..............tastes are a weird thing. I could never get into Bruce Springsteen. I liked some of his stuff but it just didn't hook me. Same with Styx (since they're being talked about here).......like some stuff; don't own any of it.

Mugg, I was the same way. I had Tix in the late 70s twice given to me for free, and I gave them away to friends who were more into him than me. I realize Springsteen's live shows were better thn the Stones, but same thing late/early 90s with Mick and his crew.

I feel much differently about Springsteen now, as far as wanting to see him live. I think I had better see he and the E Street Band before something happens to the big man, Clarence Clemons.....I think he's a little older than Bruce, and I worry about his health.......

I want to see them (Springsteen & E Street almost as badly as R.Waters).....well, not really that close, but that just illustrates how much I need to see Waters......

 I saw him about 7-8 years ago @ the Tacoma Dome............pretty good show considering that's the worst venue for a concert around here. I'm glad I saw it but it didn't give me any new-found passion for his music. Given the chance to see him at a smaller venue I would probably go see him/them again, but then, I could say that about a lot of other bands/shows.
