Yes sir. At the Las Vegas Hilton. It was around 1972 or 1973? , I was about 11 years old.

99% sure he was based at the Hilton for a long time and this is where we saw him.




This is for my buddy @BipolarGuy

This conductor, Barenboim, is a top conductor for Beethoven. This Orchestra is a mixture of Israelis and Palestinians. Nice to unite through music.

YouTube has videos of Barenboim conducting all nine Beethoven Symphonies with this orchestra. Interesting that I've watched them all except for the 9th and 5th. I enjoy the dude playing lead clarinet as well as the lead flutist.

Cheers @BipolarGuy my thoughts and prayers are with you buddy!

This evening I'll watch the 9th.

This is one of my all time favorite songs. I like the studio version way better but this song helped close out the 1990s as my favorite decade ever in music. It's Lit - My Own Worse Enemy.

I find these lyrics simultaneously funny and sad. I shouldn't find the lyrics funny perhaps but it just tickles my funny bone for some reason.

Right there with you I love The Smiths and Morrissey and Johnny Marr.

If you are a younger member and the deep thinking melancholy type and don't know the Smiths and Morrissey get on YouTube and listen - great lyrics.

Perhaps if the younger generation had decent music from much to select they would be more chipper.
I agree, rock is dead almost. No legendary bands will be remembered from the last 2 decades.
So my 3 favourite bands of my life:

Pearl Jam, I have connected with them for a long time. The lyrics and the music are surreal, the energy and friendships you can make at their shows are one of a kind, they don´t need any big stage to amaze you. This songs makes me cry like a baby every time:

Morrissey/The Smiths I discovered him late, as he had a hiatus for several years and was too young to hear him the first time he was around. Now I have recovered and seen him several times live. Jumped on stage to grab him and even caught one of his shirts. Yes I am a big fan hahaha. But taht is common on his shows. I love the next song as I will probably be the first of the gang to die of all my gangs.

My biggest musical love has been U2. Saw them over 50 times live. Starting back in 1997 Pop Mart. They were the real deal, until they were not. If I am still alive I hope I can see them live again if they do a tour for the twenty years of Achtung Baby. This is my favorite song ever and will be part of the tracklist when they make my ashes a vinyl:

If you could some how magically go back in time to the year 2018 and do one thing what would you do? Exactly! We all would do this, because this is a rhetorical question. If you're new here and don't know the answer, we would all rush over to the SN mega thread to post on the very first page of the thread, thereby securing our place in history!

Well, this is your chance to be on the front page of the SN mega thread of tomorrow - today.......the musical flashbacks thread! We all missed the boat once; don't miss the boat twice! Get on here NOW before we roll over to page two.

Next, we're going to switch it up a bit. We're going to a post-grunge group called, Audioslave. The interesting thing about Audioslave is it was formed by the three musicians from one of the all-time greatest bands, Rage Against The Machine. They added Chris Cornell formally from Soundgarden to be the lead singer of Audioslave. This was quite a change for Rage Against The Machine, since they were known to have their incredible, hip-hop rap singer who was phenomenal, but then added Chris, a true legend to the lineup. This was just a stroke of genius as far as we're concerned, because Chris has one of the best voices ever in rock history. (RIP Chris....he CTBed).

Interesting fact Tom Morello, the guitarist, is a Harvard grad.

Little known fact Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Nirvana all three released their first albums all within 2 (?) weeks of one another. And all three were from Seattle at the time of these releases. Random? I'm doubtful.

Anyway here is Audioslave - Show Me How To Live.

Fyi, 10/10 recommend this if you are triggered manic/hypomanic.

No other song hits me like this one, when triggered.




Sorry I am a music nerd, PJ, Nirvan and Sound garden didn´t release their first albums at the same time. Bleach came out in the 80´s and Ten came out in 91.

Thanks for the contributions! Keep them coming! And, if my factual misstatement was the reason to suck you into my thread let me know and I'll intentionally keep these sort of errors coming in the future.

I'm only as good as what I read under YouTube videos in the comments section so just wait until I track down the dude who misinformed me about the timing of the first album release dates for those three legendary bands!!!

Frankly, that misinformation was another "fact" I incorrectly used to point out that nothing is random and the coincidence of these three huge bands coming out at the same time, in the same city, reeked of some sort of reincarnation in my mind.

Oh well, one less tool in my reincarnation tool belt.

You'll most likely be a fan of my next post below.
Little known fact about the Smashing Pumpkins, Billy Corgan cut school to appear for this video and unbeknownst to Billy the school principal was a fan of MTV, and when the principal saw this video she was so outraged with Billy's ongoing antics that this was the last straw. She then made Billy repeat the ninth grade.

Love their music but don't know much of the back story. I rember reading once that Billy was a big fan of the Regis and Kathy show. I guess a producer heard this, and thus, invited Billy to appear on the show. Apparently, the story was neither Regis or Kathy had a clue who he was and the questions allegedly were awful.

Here is the Smashing Pumpkins - Today. Shout out to Chicago!!!


Edit- not sure if it was some sort of Fraudian slip but I typed "shot" instead of "shout" in that last sentence above. Here I am back to edit the error, and while here I'll add let's fix that stuff in Chitown.

Hahaha, yeah I love the Pumpkins too. But only while James Iha was still around in the last 2 decades they haven´t done any new music that is worth it. I agree with you that Seattle had a lot going on late 80´s early 90´s. Even Duff the base player from Guns N´Roses was from there and he was one of the last persons to see Kurt Cobain alive. Anyway here comes my favourite track from GNR:

Today's musical quiz, which singer posses posses the widest vocal range in popular music according to VVN? I'm unsure how exactly this was tested but I saw the vocal ranges listed previously a year or so ago. It included most of the heavyweights from rock music and many of the mainstream pop stars. Seeing how the ranges were charted out makes me nearly positive that it was computer analyzed. Just thinking about this again, I'll search and post it, assuming I can track it down.

The winner of the vocal range possess range of six octaves. Not sure what this exactly means but I think a range of 4 is really good. Perhaps someone who sang choir in high school can chime in and explain what six octaves means. Of course I could Google, but I want some engagement.....

@Mm80 before you get all ancy and chatty with me behind the scenes, the winner was not the construction worker from the Village People, and yes, I agreed with you that the Village People truly were vanguard.

The winner of the vocal range contest was Mike Patten. Here is my favorite song of his from Faith No More - Strip Search. His voice sounds angelic to me on the high notes and at the highest notes sends chills up my spine.



Found the list and it's attached below.

Growing up I always thought David Bowie had the best range and he is on the list, but beat out by David Lee Roth? SMH. I am a huge fan of both, but don't see that.....

Does anyone of you hear David Lee having more range than Bowie? I know both reasonably well. One of you big Van Halen fans post a video that you feel best shows David Lee's range, because I can't hear it.

If your musically curious, do yourself a favor, and take a quick look at the attached list. It's laid out well and easy to read.

Fun fact #154

Abba’s Chiquitita is pro-lifers’ international hymn. Did you know that?!

Chiquitita, tell me the truth
I'm a shoulder you can cry on
Your best friend, I'm the one you must rely on
You were always sure of yourself
Now I see you've broken a feather
I hope we can patch it up together

Chupacabra 44 said:

To my knowledge the singers with the highest octaves are Freddie Mercury and Axl Rose.


I honestly can’t listen to this song without getting chills down my spine. Sublime! He knew he was dying...

Empty spaces, what are we living for? Abandoned places, I guess we know the score, on and on
Does anybody know what we are looking for?

Peal Jam’s Release holds a special place in my heart. My first serious boyfriend was a big fan and we used to listen to them together. He never liked this song, but it was my favourite back then. Now it’s Black.

Time for me to post something to. These two sisters are rocking since the 70"s , this is one of their classics. Ann Wilson revealed in interviews that the song was about Heart's anger towards Mushroom Records, who as a publicity stunt released a made-up story of an incestuous affair involving Ann and her sister Nancy Wilson.

When it comes to musical tastes luckily Chupacabra has varied interests. However, when it comes to television and movie tastes Chupacabra has very narrow interests. For TV, Chupacabra likes all of the "grown up" cartoons - South Park, Simpsons, Family Guy, and King of the Hill. When Chupacabra wants to impress visiting friends and go highbrow he switches the channel over to the Deadliest Catch. The saying simple things for simple minds....

In an otherwise dreary day, how about some Motown. Those were the days when Pop Rocked. Don't believe Me? Just ask your grandpa!

Here is something seemingly apropos: Diana Ross and The Supremes, where did our love go.

Since you mentioned Motown, here’s another one I pulled out of the vault. This song is smooth, oh Lord, real smooth, like a good whiskey burning down your throat when you take a sip.

Brilliant artist. Marvin gaye was shot by his father, with the gun he bought for his father.
They reckon he had a death wish and taunted his father into doing it.
Almost like a suicide by pop. Sad story.

I’d like to pick grapes in a grapevine one time before I kick the bucket. It must be a lovely experience. Autumn colours, sweet, heavy grapes, low skies and misty winds :heart:
