First topic message reminder :

Cover wise it's hard to look past Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley, not usually my kind of thing but the haunting beauty of his voice is a guilty pleasure, one of the weaker songs on his only true album to be fair.

I love that Prince solo and i've always got to the end and thought the exact same thing 'where the **** did his guitar go?', can't go wrong with a bit of Stevie Ray Vaughan but not a fan of Hendrix being covered, it's near impossible to get the guitar tone right to do him justice but SRV does an admirable job.

Not sure, just think it was a term coined to lump rock bands together who came from the same area. Not a phrase I like. Soundfsrden, who I love, had been around since the early 80s, and Aic - dirt is obe of the great rock albums - were not really a "grunge" band.

Though, the grunge marketing and Nirvana helped a lot of groups sell more then they probably would have.

Well yes that the grunge scene is made up entirely of bands from the pacific Northwest but it goes far beyond that, it's born from the teen angst of the time and most certainly resulted in a cultural revolution in the youth of the late 80's. Alice in Chains were definitely a Grunge band, they like Soundgarden, Truly, Gruntruck, Love Battery and Green River combined the attitude of punk with the musical sensitivities of heavy metal, nobody encapsulated that more than AIC.

Grunge was a marketing ploy. Alice in Chains,Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden are all different.

I think you're missing the point of what Grunge is there Ben, it was a musical scene not a genre.

Odd it doesn't mention Husker Du who are widely regarded of being the pioneers of that genre/scene, Bob Mould from that band did some decent stuff with a band called Sugar, which sounds like some terrible teen girl band's name but is worth a listen.

Interesting if you don't know the history of the bands and their inter connectivity, yes the sound may have varied but the scene itself did exist.

A music scene obviously existed the grunge tag was added on, primarily from Sub Pop it would seem and the term grunge was mainly marketing.

Pacific State is outstanding, never a big Fatboy fan other than Santa Cruz, same with Chemicals other than Star Guitar (which is incidentaly the best music video of all time)

That happens with every music scene or genre, it exists and then gets labelled, whether it's Rock n Roll, Blues, Jazz or Grunge.

Weird though isn't it?
When I started to listen to music, American R & B, with a smattering of Jazz and a good helping of the (Delta) Blues, was the genre that influenced and informed our listening habits and the British bands of the day.

It feels as if R & B has subsequently been hi-jacked and old-style Blues just about eliminated.

Agree, That's what I mean by the thought that the name/phrase has been hi-jacked.
First concert I went to headlined Chuck Berry and included a pre-HOTRS-release Animals. In many ways it doesn't get much better than that.
Edit: Anyone else remember "Mike Raven's R & B Show" on the Beeb. About 50 years ago - essential listening at the time. Seemed he always had some Swamp Rock featured, usually Tony Joe White. Don't hear much of that any more.

Rhythm and bass rather then rhythm and blues. It was a 90s thing, which I don't think has kept on that much, though I'm not up on popular music.

I wouldn't overly class beyonce in the same sphere, as brandi, usher or sone other the others. Though maybe a bit of destiny's chikd did fall into it.

On Beyonce though, crazy in love is a wonderful pop song. I love a good pop song.

I think you're meaning Drum and Bass Ben, people like Roni Size, LTJ Bukem, Blue Marten etc.

It's the warbling voice of RnB I can't stand. It's so contrived.

R&b I remember reading that contemporary r&b was more rhythm and bass rather than the old rhythm and blues. I kniw its totally different to Goldie.

Of course it's 'art'. Art, and the liking of given types, is about as subjective as it can be. The fact you don't like something does not mean it's not 'art'.

I'm afraid I disagree. If you want odd time signatures, check out Tool, for example. How many 'rock' musicians excel in multiple instruments? Quite a few. I'm not an expert on Davis, but what else did he excel in? Jazz is not some mystically superior musical genre. I like jazz, but the sort of soloing masterbati0n you objected to re. guitarists (Vai, Satriani etc) is exactly what the many of the jazz virtuosos got off on i.e. free-form improvisation etc.

Agree, thought about that as well. Did Nirvana make one or two albums? And today they almost have an iconic status. Helped by Cobains suicide of course, but nevertheless pretty mindbaffling. Still, I’m not sure how many would call Cobain a genius?
Groll is pretty talented. Wonder how much of Nirvana were down to his musical input really?

I didn't say it wasn't art because I didn't like it. I don't see music in general as art, and I certainly don't see pop acts as artists. I don't think just because you have a voice which is in tune that it makes you an artist, even if you write your own songs, any more than a chef is an artist for making a dish.

Jack of all trades master of all comes to mind there to an extent. I'd agree to an extent on Tool which is why I regard Danny Carey as most probably the finest modern drummer.

Vai and Satriani is not free form improvisation in the slightest, it's all very choreographed, for improv you want Peter Green or Jerry Garcia.

Opinion. I've seen Satriani a couple of times and he's plenty impressive. I like Peter Green's playing, but there's another sort of BS mystical reverence for blues, same as jazz. It's not better; just different.

I'm not doubting he's not an impressive performer, I saw a G3 show years ago with Vai and I believe Robert Fripp, but I just don't enjoy his playing all that much, I place far more emphasis on the feel that the Blues guys have. Satriani or Vai, there's no real discernible tone to their playing whereas with Green and Garcia there is but you're entitled to your view Navy.

Going back to guitarists/bassists a second, how could I forget Michael Schenker for lead guitar?!? You want some 'tone' Soul, how's about his? Iconic. Forgot about 'Geezer' Butler on bass too.

Also, a nod to John McVie for the iconic bass line leading into Lyndsey Buckingham's solo on 'The Chain'. Talking of Buckingham, quite like the musicality of his playing too.

I've not heard a great deal of Michael Schenker's playing, not a big fan of the bands he's been involved with, find them generally a bit meh. Geezer Butler as a heavy metal bassist has no equal, the raw power of his playing alongside Bill Ward is something to be admired, they were even better live, complimented the 'simple' riffing of Tony Iommi perfectly.

Worth checking out 70s UFO featuring Schenker. He went off somewhat (drink), but I love the sound of his guitar. The Schenker-Pattison stuff is good in places, and segues nicely back to the earlier conversation about covers.

Butler, I think, was a lead player prior to hooking up w/ the rest of Sabbath, but Iommi was basically "I'm lead guitar and we need a bassist. Go learn it Bill.". Think his bass playing is interesting because he did a lot of things a lead would do, but on a bass, as well as the basic rhythm stuff.
You're right re. his meshing w/ Ward/Iommi - brilliant. Saw them at Download a couple of times, but unfortunately w/o Ward. That said Tommy Clufetos can't half drum, but not quite the same percussion feel as Ward, who was (obviously) a lot more old school.

I'll give them a listen later on today, always on the lookout for new music.

That meshing is something you lose with a rhythm guitarist for me, I think it's Children of the Grave where Butler plays the lead riff and Iommi plays a subtle background riff, Ward hammers away with the precision of a brain surgeon too, they all bounced off each other so well, in their early days they were a very well oiled machine, lost it somewhat as Ozzy succumbed to the lifestyle. Clufetos isn't bad and I don't know why they didn't use him on 13 where Brad Wilk was decidedly average.

Having a bit of Staind period just now. Some good anger in there, but they've matured a lot and some cracking songs. Pity they've gone on hiatus...

I only sold my Staind cd's recently, I have terrible collectors OCD so I either have to have all the studio albums of a band or none of them. Break the Cycle was a decent album in fairness with 'It's Been Awhile' becoming a rock classic, 'Open Your Eyes' and 'Outside' were decent too.

Mezzanine is also a great album.

Not something I'm familiar with, that. Bizarrely, I was looking them up the other night as I used to go to school w/ someone who I think might have been related to Grant Marshall.

Mezzanine was the title track for "House" with Hugh Laurie. Great show and an introduction to Massive Attack.

You mentioned your Bristol roots in the other thread! Your not Banksy are you?

I would def recommend mezzanine, its pretty dark, but the first track should reel you in. Then teardrop hooks you.

I wish - my wife would chuckle at the idea that I can paint/draw. I'll check it out sometime

Checked this out on YouTube. Not bad overall and one or two really good bits. Not what I would have considered listening to off my own bat, and probably not something I'd have bothered w/ a few years back. Interesting thing as well - after YouTube had finished it, it looped into a load of stuff from Thievery Corporation. Some interesting stuff there and good to just soak up.

The MA album is mood music, probably not something for constant listening to but really fits certain moments. If you didn't hear unfinished symphony, I would also advise a listen to that. Its earlier but also superb. Never heard of Thievery Corporation but will look into them.

Always good to broaden musical horizons!

I ordered an acoustic bass guitar online and will be taking delivery shortly, so excited. Do any of you folks play music? I've played some guitar and ukelele in the past but I really suck. Also played tin whistle in primary school (not sure that counts), and got a harmonica for christmas one year, which was quite intuitive and fun to play.

Sounds like a real contradiction in terms.
