Love "Manic Monday"... can't tell you how many times I played that song on my way to work Monday mornings after tough Pats Sunday losses...
Love "Old friends". My Maternal Grandfather, Frank ward up in Northern Vermont Was best friends with old Charlie Coll Another small dairy farmer about a mile up the road. Both barely spoke to anyone. They'd help each other with their work (haying for instance). And would sit on the old wooden grain box. And sip an ice cold bear from the Milk cooler (water at appx. 35°). Whenever Old friends played I could see them sitting side by side on the grain box, quietly and slowly having their beer.


Cheers

Lovely. Never knew the song.

Delighted to see the visual cross ref To Simon and Garfunkel.

For a long time in my youth, the following tune was, to me, the greatest song of all time. Some great songs have been gifted on me since then, but Sounds of Silence, for lyrics and music both, stay at the top, accompanied by a very few others.

Yes, the 90s are nostalgic for me. I'll be 50 in June.

Sorry for the youngin music. 🤗

First time I saw Layne and Alice In Chains was in the early 90s at Lollapalooza at an airfield in Kingston, RI. Some 30,000 of us little bastiches on a 95 degree day for a 9 hour show. Got there early enough to race to the barricades front and center.

Tremendous show with epic talent and some little known bands to most of the world at the time but not us little shits.

AIC headlined with Primus following stellar performances from Tool, Rage Against the Machine and more.

One incredible day and night. One of the highlights of my 40 year passion of attending live performances of types and genres from Billy Joel and Sir Elton to Paul McCartney to the ballet and opera, BSO and the Pops at Symphony Hall and Tanglewood to Pink Floyd to Slayer, Sepultura and everything in between. Last show sadly was about 2 years ago right before the world lost its collective mind, a dynamite performance by a band I had very heard of In This Moment crushing it and opening my eyes to their angry, dark energetic and sexy music as they opened for Five Finger Death Punch at Meadowbrook in Gilford, NH. Helluva night.

Yep, just rambling. Lol . Cuz that's where wonderful nostalga has a tendency to lead.

Cried the morning I read that Layne Staley passed. It was well telegraphed in advance and his lyrics were beautilly self aware on the hole trajectory of his life and what was going to happen yet I still cried.

Rest in Peace man, your soul gave much to many as it burned.

Song: Shine On You Crazy Diamond
Artist: Pink Floyd



Favorite quote: "Why have I not ever listened to this? What the hell is wrong with me?"
I've watched a couple of this guy reacting to Zappa. As far as reaction videos go (which are usually completely lame), he's not bad, and is far more qualified with his musical education than most of the yahoo's.

I'm amazed that he could have made it to this point never having heard Shine though.
