@Woodsof NH You're lucky your wife knows who Jandek is. Based on my bride's reactions, WFMU only plays 2 songs: "I like this" and "What are you listening to NOW?"

Phillipe, I read Irwin's book and then bought several Jandek records. She has never forgiven him.

That surprised me. I have to listen to Freddie freeloader and killer joe back to back.

I think that there was a plan to swap Peter Lewis for Neil young at one point when stills had hits and Neil didn’t. Between the grape and the Springfield , an even swap. Neil was Ahmets Achilles heel.

I find Food diet & Musical diet to be useful analogies to each other...

Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Wed. 9/4/19 4:40pm Itzall ClearD'me Nåu:

If reports are true, Mr. Collins is one of the world's wealthiest "rock" musicians, in a league with the likes of Sir Paul, Elton John and other super rich poppermost toppers.
  Wed. 9/4/19 4:41pm McGroovey:

Genesis lyrics would be profound if they meant anything. Kinda like "Surfin' Bird". Except you know up-front not to waste time figuring out if Surfin' Bird means anything.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 4:41pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

"By the Pound" might be my most-played album during my college years.

Agree re Phil & drumkits.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 4:44pm G:

Even after he began doing vocals, he still popularized gated drums, which was pretty big in the 80s and ended up kind of overused.
  Wed. 9/4/19 4:44pm prudy:

not ashamed to say I still appreciate some pieces from Trick of the Tail...

Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/4/19 4:50pm G:

On Yes discussion boards back in the day, arguing drummers was big (Bruford v White), and often working/touring drummers would chime in. Quite a few of them seem to firmly believe that Ringo was considerably underrated because of his goofball persona in the group mix.
  Wed. 9/4/19 4:52pm Ochre Ochre:

Hey Irwin, just listened to "Selling England" the other day, one of the best prog albums. Agreed, always thought Collins should have stayed behind the kit.

  Wed. 9/4/19 4:54pm prudy:

I have to say representations of rock icons is not the most exciting idea...but whatever, if it raises money for the station, great.
