I'm really excited about this weekend - it's all classic rock and live.
Growing up I was a huge fan of Rush - I was always fascinated by the drumming of Neil Perth - one of the best and most influential drummers in rock history (see link - I ranked Neil as my second favourite drummer of all time). If you doubt - just take a listen to Tom Sawyer and Limelight.
Moving Pictures" (1981) seems to really reflect that chaotic yet beautifully synced drumming of Neil on the tracks mentioned above. And I'm in Tampa this weekend to see Rush perform at 1-800-Ask-Gary, where they are doing the entire Moving Pictures album! I can't wait to see them as it was one of my childhood dreams.
On another front - what's classic rock without Pink Floyd...."The Wall" is like the 3rd biggest selling album in history and "Dark Side of the Moon" is the longest running album in history - about 15 years (770 weeks) on the charts - wow!
Roger Water's "The Wall" tour this Sunday in Boston - one of my fave cities.
Also whilst in Boston I hope to catch up with fellow blogger Rob at BosGuy and his partner for dinner/drinks!
So that's classic rock weekend! With music to boot!
Anyways peeps TTYL!
