    My oldest daughter (35) picked up on my tastes but leans a little more toward heavy metal.
    My concerts were at the Capital Center in MA or Richmond VA. The security was pretty intense back then. They searched you as you went in and if you didn't have at least a pint of whiskey they wouldn't let you in. That was the minimum. The rock-n-roll standards were pretty high back then. My son did the same in music taste and learned to play guitar. He got pretty good and if he kept the distortion down I thought the metal sounded better because the music was clearer. It was funny because even though the difference in music style wasn't as different as the style I liked compared to my father's taste I still found myself saying some of the same things to my son that my father said to me.

    The New York state thruway's closed man.... I was 11 in 69 so couldn't make that one, but did get to Woodstock 94. It was surreal when Joe Cocker came out and you heard the opening bars to "With a littel help from my friends" and then Joe hit the chords sounding just like he did in 69. Something that I"ll never forget. Lucky that it's something that I remember. Jack Daniels stock spiked up considerably that weekend.

    Yeah, I never even got close in 69. I was 22 and my then girlfriend used to live in the Adirondacks so we were pretty used to zipping up and down the thruway but not that day. We were heading downstate and the traffic was backed up pretty much to Albany. Turned around and spent the day in Lake George.

    Somehow I don't think anything like Woodstock could be pulled off these days without there being some major violence.

    Funny how different parts of the country handled things. No way we could have brought in alcohol at The Garden and the Filmore was about as bad. Yet, security tended to look the other way if people lit up.

    I have my preferences musically and can enjoy most any style with one exception......rap. I didn't like disco a bit but enjoyed Saturday Night Fever (filmed mostly in my old neighborhood in Brooklyn) and at least you could dance to it, but I just don't get the entire rap thing.

    Last night I saw Judas Priest and Black Label Society live in concert.

    What a show! They both rocked but Judas Priest was absolutely amazing.

    Been spinning Primus quite a bit these days.

    I almost forgot how completely insane, yet immensely talented that band is, in any iteration

    Love their song Hang Me Up To Dry.

    I've been recently playing Florence + the Machine's new album, Ceremonials. Can't believe I hadn't ever listened to them before this album.

    I just listened to "Odessa" on You Tube; pretty cool s#*t.

    If Satriani joined Dillinger Escape Plan, I think it might sound a bit like that

    Not a raging fan of these dudes, but this tune is killer and the vid is quite entertaining.

    Been on a folk music kick for the past week or two. Joan Baez, Judy Collins, Buffy Ste. Marie, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, as well as a bit of Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie. Currently listening to Joan Baez singing Sagt Mir Wo Die Blumen Sind.
