Re: Music Thread

Lots of bands have claimed to be the loudest. The Who may have been the first. I believe Deep Purple were another. Of course no one is louder than Spinal Tap. "These go to eleven."

"Won't ring a bell"??? I've played air-guitar to Slade, Sweet and Suzi Quatro more than to any other artists!

I was a virtuoso on the tennis racquet, albeit to the sound of Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Cream and so on. I liked Slade as well though - a real kick ass rock'n'roll band.

Well,like MaricaInAHole posted,there are lots of groups who've tried to promote themselves as the loudest,but you are correct that it doesn't stand for much without talent.I knew a rocker back in the U.S. who loved some of the harder,older Iron Maiden stuff(from before Dickinson's joining the group),and he went to see Accept once...and referred to them afterwards as 'a big cloud of noise'

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Peggy Lee (totally different genre of course) did the opposite. In her early pre-fame days when she had to sing for often rowdy and boorish crowds that didn't pay much attention she said that her tactic to make them listen was singing softly. Than they would have to keep quiet themselves or they wouldn't hear what was going on onstage. And it nearly always worked she said.

Btw,that word I used resembles a profane word,but it means something else in Mexican Spanish....That's an interesting bit of psychology that Peggy Lee used.My mom told me a story about Dionne Warwick who got VERY angry and told a single fan to sit down--that she wasn't finished--when he got up and left his seat.He then replied,'My psychic advisor told me that I'd shit my pants if I didn't go to the bathroom right now'

.....He didn't actually say that,but he DID merely get up to use the bathroom,he mentioned to a reporter afterwards.It would have been nice if he HAD made the comment above,don't you think?

Re: Music Thread

Unfortunately,so many younger musical acts languish in frustrated creativity because THIS duo sets the bar of excellence so very high:

Can't wait to see 'em when they come to Mexico on their international tour
