Morrisey with the Smiths was awesome!  Everything since…

I actually never had much time for The Smiths then, although now I realise that Marr's guitar playing was great and they have some awesome songs. Morrissey I would happily travel back in time to off. Waste of oxygen imho.

Agreed!!!

When I look at the PF catalog, I see my favorites from Meddle through Animals, a childhood favorite (I was angsty) that I still love but can't hold quite in the same esteem as those previous albums today in The Wall, a thoroughly forgettable second Waters-led album in The Final Cut, and then some inconsistent Gilmour-led material that had a few gems like "Learning to Fly." When I think about all that together, the things that mostly stand out to me are Gilmour tracks and the amazing keyboard work of Wright. That is why Waters takes a back seat for me. I know he's a dick, but have not really stayed on top of precisely why he's been a dick, so while I also sometimes struggle to separate art from artist, it's the quality of the art in my case that ranks my Floyd appreciation.
Think it, be it.

Agreed. Although personal preference dictates that Animals has always been my favourite record (also Waters led), while The Final Cut has value to me. Meddle and DSOTM are just lovely, and I really enjoy the apocrypha like Saucerful and Obscured (Barret/Gilmour). Divison Bell can suck a fuck as far as I'm concerned. It's only saving grace is the keyboard noodling.

Also, I was an angsty teen, but I'm sadly an angsty adult too  :D Waters should pay for my therapy.

Animals is also my favorite, with Meddle close behind. Waters is my man. Gilmour's an amazing guitarist, of course, but I always felt like Roger was the beating, angsty heart of that band.

@IH-GARY the Billy Strings shows in the UK appear to be available to download (for purchase) on Nugs: https://2nu.gs/3tuG9hu

I look forward to listening to them on my streaming account with them.
Think it, be it.

Cheers for the info @mclaincausey - listening now! Wish all my fave artists would support Nugs as much as Billy!
I subscribed a few years a go for the Tyler Childers gigs but he stopped posting in 2019.

I've got Brothers Osbourne and Kingfish gigs coming up soon - great to be back attending live events!

Nice!

I was supposed to catch Tyler's Red Rocks debut but had to travel for work. I did catch the stream and it was fantastic.


Think it, be it.

Those guys are absolute Killers,got kind of a Linkin Park vibe whenever they hit the chorus. Singer even reminded me of Chester Bennington.
