Transcript Below As Follows: Participant #1:

Hello and welcome to out on the Tiles Music Rewind live stream team. As you know, Music Rewind is a podcast where we look to tell the stories behind our favorite albums. I'm your host, Steve Epley, and today we are bringing you our very first livestream. We're going to talk about the now completed seasons one and two and whatever music good stuff comes up. Joining us today is a full cast of characters, all previous guests on the show, sometimes multiple episodes and roundtables. And rather than introduce everyone myself, I will let them tell our millions of viewers who they are. Go for it, Mike. Oh, wow. Mike Boroski. I was on season one doing pro jam versus and then again on season two for the 90s round table. And then one more time on season two for let's supply three. Happy to be here again. Love the rock and roll. And by the way, we have extra guests. My dog Joanne in the background. Luke. Luke. I was in season one for the Radiohead and Rainbows episode, also in season one for the classic Route roundtable and season two for the who Quadraphenia episode. As Mike said, happy to be back anytime I can talk music with some good people. It was a good day. Danny. And I'm Danny. I feel like a slacker. I was only here for Diary in season one, the 90s roundtable. I have not yet done my second record. So happy to be here with you guys. You are slotted for early in season three, though, so we'll give you credit there. Well, there we go. I'm next to the guy who's going to be next to the guy who's next to the guy. You got bumped from season two because you couldn't pick a damn album. How good you I envy you guys. This is what I want to talk about. My therapist has put in a new driveway, thinking about dealing with all my anxiety about talking about records. You need the spreadsheet, man. I'm telling you. Yeah, exactly. Spreadsheets are handy. And we got Bryce. Hello. Sorry, guys. My wife had a friend over tonight. I was like, I love this person. We never get a sear. So my apologies, but I'm here now. Welcome. Tell our viewers who you are. Okay. So you guys all saw the reels that he was posting. He was nice enough to let the show use my new song instead of good man's brother. I'm sure a lot of you guys have heard that cover. I'm sorry. I heard the original, but I did the cover. That's who I am. I made that. My name is Bryce Evans. I got, like, that coming out. And Steve has been a great supporter of my stuff and I love this podcast. He had me on an episode. So nice to meet you guys. Welcome, fellas. Appreciate it. Allen might be joining us a little later and we'll go until we're done. Bullshitting. I had a lot of crap to talk to Al, so I really hope he joined. I've got a list of talking points and he's the focus of many of you. He's the focus. Yes, Steven. If it's anything like the 90s roundtable, I hope you guys have enough power in your computers. Speaking of 90s roundtable oh boy, luke's coming right out.


Participant #1:

I don't know how you guys feel about Bush, but we didn't mention Bush at all, did we? Not once. Absolutely. I think there was a reason for that. I adore the first four albums. You can't talk you know what, Luke? What it's so crazy is because I had lists and I know Michael is the same way I don't know Steve is the same way about bands and records that we wanted to talk about. Sure. And then it was 3 hours or well, Steve cut it down at 3 hours. Yeah, we talked over 4 hours on this and then as soon as he stopped recording, we're like, oh, what about it? Just started ticking off now. I am not a Bush apologist or whatever, not a big fan. But they should have been mentioned. They should have. They're a huge person. Machine head alone. 16 stone and he's dreamy. And he's a dreamboat. That's right. No, stop it. They made records, but it wasn't out of spite. Understood. No, I'm giving you a guess. I'm giving you a guess. I'll give you credit. 16 stone and razor blade suitcase. I enjoyed both those olives. I couldn't name you one after that. Golden State was number four. I absolutely love Golden State. And Science.


Participant #1:

Was that the chemicals between us? Yes. And letting the cable sleep. That's an excellent song. Okay. Just giving you a hard time. I know. I'm doing the same. Back at you. And then cake. Where was cake? Not once. That's a little harder for me. Yeah, they bridge the lot though, don't they? Yeah, they were late. Short skirt, long jacket. That was two thousand s. No, I know. It was the distance of their very first friend is a four letter word. But anyway yeah, speaking of late camera, so I've got incubus. Modest Mouse, Queens of the Stone Age. Wilcott was mentioned. Was Modest Mouse mention got really popular though in the early 2000s. Exactly. But, like, in crowded west is perfect. And I believe they're on their 25th anniversary tour. Or they just announced they're going to be on the 25th anniversary tour for that record. Golden casket just came out. What? Last year was a great album. That's a good record. The new one is really good. Luke. It was only because there was not enough time and then I'm going to get a little pretentious. So we talked about this this morning.


Participant #1:

I had neutral milk on my list, but I thought we'd try to keep it a little more commercial. Understood. Yes. Again, I'm just because Michael bows down to all corporate sponsors, but no, all of those. And like I said, as soon as we stop recording, we were like, oh, what about these records? What about this? And I'm sure I've missed a couple, too. Trust me. I was trying to cross Mop as we were going, and I'm like, oh, we got to talk about this. But I'm like, how do you go from talking about, like, Mariah Carey and go, oh, by the way, neutral milk, hotels, airplane over the sea. She was really inspired. That's a tough transition first, but I will say bryce so your episode about Clapton and that came out in July? Yeah, I think it was 2000 and 2003.


Participant #1:

I'm not giving away the ages of any of us out there. And Luke, I don't know how old you are. So that came out and that was sort of you talked about it was a contemporary record, you're listening with your dad and all that kind of stuff in the 2000s. What is your 90s for recollection, or did you get all of that stuff a little bit later?


Participant #1:

I was born in 94, so all of that came later. That came to me when I was, like, I don't know, sophomore in high school, something like that. My best friend burned me this CD with all these freaking people that I had never heard of. And it was a burned CD. So it's not like it had a track list. It was like he called it like blue moon mix one or Guinness mix two. And I'm 17, so it's not like I'm drinking, right? He's like, this is what you would have with the goodness. And I'm like, okay, sure it is. Right? I hope. Was that like, dude, I don't know. He made me 15 of these things with stuff that I had never heard. Yeah, thankfully, I had him because he showed me, like, Corn Lamagott. It's really great rock bands that I now love that I wouldn't have found without him. But, yeah, like, he got me all these CDs and I just was like, all right, why not? I'll flip them in the CD player and we'll just go to town. And there was a few that I was like and then a lot that I really fell in love with, and Bush was one of them. What is that song? I could not think of the name. It's one of their big hits. It's not glycerine. Glycerine? Machine Head. Both of those. Machine Head is the big man. The video was awesome, though. I don't know if you guys remember the video where it was just like somebody riding, like, a motorcycle through London, and it was pretty cool. That was way before you could do that with GoPros and stuff. Sure. So it was, like, big production. Yeah. So my thing was very little with all that stuff until a lot later on. But my influences were so much different than that. He was on the whole rock and metal side and I was like blues and guitars and old cool cars. That was where my whole case went. Bright. I want to ask is because I think Steve not to take over the rule here, but why I asked is because it's so much different than I know how Michael and I came into Bush. When we got into it, it was a tail end of grunge, you know what I mean? And it was like now Michael's had a couple of beers. So when I said we got in the bus. Sorry.


Participant #1:

My mom and significant other would like that joke. But all I want to say is when you hear those songs without context, without any preconceived notions, that's why I was asking. Luke brought it up. They are great songs and for better or for worse, the first time I heard him was like, oh, this is the death now of


Participant #1:

my wife is enjoying this conversation.


Participant #1:

Steve, for the people who will be listening to this as a podcast, can you please explain what was just said? Moderator right. You've got to say it out loud. Yes. My wife is one of our many viewers right now and she does agree with and she thought the Bush joke was very comical. That's what Mars are going no, they are a good band and who wouldn't want to are they better than Creed in your opinion?


Participant #1:

And now it's like cursing me because I feel like it's following me around and it's playing in like sores just because me and Danny talk about it. Now she looks so mad. He walked away about cruising. See, he's been crying out to God. Yeah. Seeking only his those videos are absolutely ridiculous. I bet you Luke went to get a Creed vinyl and he's going to show us he's got the Creed superbox set. I know, but I also want to after Luke shows us his head too, I want to get Bryce's opinion on Creed as someone coming up a little bit younger than us. I was just going to grab my Creed albums, actually. I can't find


Participant #1:

you. You had your headphones off Luke. But I kind of have their first two albums. Why? My wife is not going to listen to this now. She's already said she's done. You know what? Creed is not that bad of a band. Yes, they might be derivatives of what came before, but Creed is not that bad. I'm not going to say they're one of my favorites. I would agree. Right. So here's the thing. I didn't grow up on Creed, right. I heard a Creed when I was like, I hope not. No, Thankfully, I didn't. My dad did me better than that. But here's I think they came out with some good stuff. Not all of it by any means. It's not like I have all of their stuff on my liked playlist on Spotify or something. But there are a few choices on that and I'm like, yeah, I can get into this every now and again. I had to do a cover of a Creep song.


Participant #1:

If you get requests, which one did you do? My own prison. I did with the one you have to at least my Own Prison is like, okay, I thought that was a pretty good you're wearing mike down. No, I had their CDs in college and then I stopped like, I don't know, drinking heavily, I don't know what happened. Like a beer. I think I had my prison. I will say sound wise, all that, they check every box, right? They sound good, they look good, the singer, but there's nothing there.


Participant #1:

My mom just texted me because she doesn't know how to message on the board like Michelle and she said, I can't comment but I love Creed. There you go. 65 year old woman says it's got to be good. That's right. I wonder if we go back in time. Like somebody saying Vanilla Fudge is better than Led Zeppelin. Right. No one claiming that Creed is better than anyone, though. Creed is better than everyone. Oh, creed bratton. Hey there's Nicole. Thank you, Nicole. Nicole is going to be a guest guest on season three. Steve's got her in the book. So Nicole and I have actually recorded some music together. We're nowhere near what you've done, Bryce. We do it very yeah, I can't comment, but I love Creed and by the way, Nicole, the only Creed worth listening to is Creed Brat. There you go. Or Creed from the office. That is Creed Brat from sorry, I just watched it once. I don't like re watch. The only friend is Ross.


Participant #1:

Sorry.


Participant #1:

Nicole is going to be doing the Cranberries.


Participant #1:

Excellent. That's a great record. Yeah. And Luke, you brought up bands we didn't talk about much in the don't know if we talked about went down in 90s path about how great the Cranberries were. Zombies. The Zombie video alone is one of the heaviest. Just that drumbeat of zombie. Come on, man. Zombie is second album, though. Yeah, it's funny. We were in Dublin, Ireland, and you would have thought, okay, they're not going to want to listen to the Cranberries because it's Ireland and stuff because you hear it enough. But like every bar we went to, every bar we went to, the guy who was like or the lady who was just playing at the bar always played Zombie. Always that and like Snow patrol a snow patrol song. Like they were bringing a snow patrol because I guess their first concert ever, chasing Car was Chasing Cars. It was huge. The first time they ever played, I guess was in Belfast. Like we walked by a place, they had like a placard that said snow patrols first concert. And those two songs would play at every bar and I'm thinking, man, I love Zombie. But you would have think that you would hear it you get sick of it, I guess. But I guess it's like Nashville. You don't get sick of whatever honky tongue songs that you want to hear in Nashville. I didn't know. Snow patrol. So they're Irish snow patrol. Oh, yeah. Zombies about.


Participant #1:

Oh, they're from it's weird because they're from England. Wales. But they're not from Ireland. But that's the first place they ever played was in Belt, Ireland. They're huge in Ireland. I can honestly say


Participant #1:

the first time I heard of them and I saw them at the Metro, I saw him at a bunch of places in Chicago. But they put on a good show. Their first two albums were pretty that's a good show. We saw them, didn't we, Dan? In like 708 in the City. All right, so I've got a new topic here. So I did the math and for 19 70, 19 80, 19 90, 20 00 and then 2010. So there have been seven episodes from the 70s. There have been three episodes from the 80s. There have been six from the from the from 2010 on. That's wrong. Is that right? There's two from 2010 on. Because you had did you include this week's episode with the Preservation Hall, Jack? Oh, I did not. I just had the Alabama Shakes. So, yeah, we've got two now. Negate all your credibility. We can't believe a word you say now. That was a surprise.


Participant #1:

So I guess my question for the group is 2010 to 2022, do you have any bands that you find that are outstanding and would deserve to have their own individual episode? I do. Prices banned it. Well, was Shine Down after 2010 or did they have an album before that? I think they have an album out after 2010, actually. Yeah, I was saying bands that were formed after 2010. When did my Chemical Romance come to like, when was their first album?


Participant #1:

Let's do that then. From 2000 to 2022. So let's open it up because there haven't been that many for what did I say? For 2000? A lot of good bands out of the can mention. Okay. Shine down. Bryce, tell us what you think about Shine Down. That first album that they had, that thing is unreal from the inside or whatever. Was that the single? I think that sounds of madness.


Participant #1:

Eva Whisper was their first album. Okay. And then looks like I'm a poorly prepared person. You're fine. This is just a roundtable, right? I'm legit. Just going through my spreadsheet. The first of these not even cheating. We need to Talk about I absolutely love Leave a Whisper. And then I caught on to shine down during Sound of Madness that was it for me. What year is that, Bryce? Sound of madness. I think it's like 2008. I want to say something like that somewhere in there, but that's where Sadam Madness came out. Haley's Comet. I always remember Hailstorm. Is that hailstorm is fantastic. I didn't know if that's what you were trying to think of? Yeah, I was trying to think of a song on that Shine Up, but there's so many. That album is freaking in. Fantastic. Speaking of Hailstorm, though, Hailstorm is also in that group. She just released one, I think, this year. Wow. That chick is like, she's on fire. And her band is just fantastic. I love Hailstorm, and every time she always surprises me, right. I'll catch onto an album, I'll listen to it for like a couple of weeks, right? I'm like, yes. Kill her. And then it's just like, cool. I'll find other music and I'll keep going. And then she'll come out with something else. I'm like, oh, shit, Lizzie Hale. I'm like, this isn't for kids. You're good. Yeah, don't worry. My mom's already probably sworn like three times, so yeah, I'm like, Hailstorm is great. And she always comes back and she's like, hey, don't forget about me. And she always is just so powerful. And she has those emotional songs that she comes out with usually on the end of her albums. Right. And it's like, man, there's a reason that you have the success that you have. Like, you are on fire. Insanely good. I love so, Bryce, are those bands forgive my ignorance, but, like, Trivia, do you know Trivia? Yeah. Seen Trivium in concert. Do you know Avatar? That sounds familiar, but everything outside the Avatar, I'll check them out. Like Ramstein. I can't stand Ramsey. Right. They drive me, Avatar, to my buddy who likes Shine Down and some of those fans. He's a big slip knot guy. You like slipknot, I'm assuming. I like them. Yeah, but they're not one of my mainly listened to okay, I do, yeah. But he turned me on to Avatar, my buddy Paul, and it reminds me of how you were talking about Shine Down, but Avatar goes there's theatrics there's, heaviness there's apparatus singing. So, yeah, check them out if you get a chance. Sweet. Yes. I have written down. I'm going to check those guys out for sure. Yeah. So since we've spread it from 2000, I've got countless fans, so I don't even know where to begin. As you said, Arcade Fire. Arctic Monkeys. Arctic Monkeys. What a great show. We saw them, like, in our first tour. Nice. Yeah. See that first album, I would have loved to have seen them back. We saw that right there with my brother. Yeah, we did. They put on a hell of a live show. Oh, sorry. Luke, go ahead. No, you're fine, you're fine. They're like 19, too, when we saw them, so they got a lot of energy at the time. The Shins


Participant #1:

fleetfox.


Participant #1:

Yeah. The Strokes. Absolutely. Yeah. And then at the drive in, broke up and created two stellar bands, mars Voltage Driven. Oh, I saw Mars voltage. Amazing. Holy count. Like Queens and Stone Age. Yes. Which I love their first album, but yeah, they really didn't hit the mainstream until then. When did Portugal the man started making records? I think they were probably like late two thousand s. I like them. Oh, yeah. I like them a lot. They might fall into the 2010 they might be category. Did anybody cover Cedar yet? No. Cedar is another disclaimer. I'm that age where I'm thinking you're talking about the Bruca Salt song? Yeah. The band? No, I got you. The best thing that Steven ever did was let Amy Lee sing on their record. That was a great amy Lee is one of my favorite singers ever. She's really good in college. I do have to call out that Michelle. Just call those the darkness. I believe in a thing called love yes. One of my dad's favorite song. His two favorite songs are More Than a Feeling by Boston and the Darkness. I believe in a thing called love did you guys see the Foo Fighters Taylor tribute concert? So Brian Johnson actually asked the lead singer of The Darkness to sing with him on stage, and apparently he never does that. So he kind of said, no, I can't do it. And someone came up and said, hey, Brian asked you to do it, you got to do it. Is it justin Hawkins? I believe so, yeah. Okay. Good call. They opened up first. Got an amazing voice. Absolutely. Lady got it. Oh, my gosh. Yes. It sort of sucked for them because I think when they came out correct me if I'm wrong, but they sort of got pigeonholed into a niche. Like, maybe they're making fun of a genre, like the hair metal stuff. But I think the music lays it down to all of their music videos. Their music videos are kind of wild. They just came out and they rock. I think they had a new record out last year or two years ago. Yeah. And I think really good. They're much bigger in England. We have the tour poster from the Lady Gaga show that my wife went to, and The Darkness was like, the opener. And she was like, they were so awesome. And then, as my wife called it, Mother Monster came on and that nobody else even mattered. After having just seen Lady Gaga a couple of weeks ago with her,


Participant #1:

it's a hell of a show. I mean, you could feel the flames from the stage from a good 50 yards away. Does lady Gaga predate 2010. I believe so. Barely. Yes, she does. Remember, Danny, you weren't at the show, so in La LaPole,


Participant #1:

she was like, on the side stage. And I'm like, who is this blonde girl that everybody cares about so much? And we watch her for ten minutes, and then a couple of years later, she was the headliner. I'm like, I was like, we saw this person sing like, who the hell is this? I didn't have anything. And then my wife is like, Obviously, you can this way there's a lady that got like, poster behind me from the Vegas residency when she went to there. So yeah, Lady Gaga is one that I really enjoyed. One of our songs is from the Star is Born soundtrack is one of our wedding songs. Nice. And the other one is a Pearl Jam's song. Well, I will say a band that is not post 2010, but I think Luke, Bryce and Steve were really big. Do you guys know the Marcus King band? Yes, I've heard of them, but I've never given him a shot. Oh, God, he's so good. Price. I know. You would dig it. I think he's like a 24, 25 year old dude down home. Price, take it away. I love him.


Participant #1:

Like that guy. Yeah, absolutely. And so I don't know this because I haven't vetted this, right? I had an old coworker that used to go to shows upon shows upon shows upon shows. I had a day job time. I couldn't do that. So she was out there living the life, right? And she was like, yeah. Did you hear about how he got his record deal? I'm like, I have no idea. She's like, well, from what I heard was if he went in and snuck into who was the guy? He's in government mule. Warren Haines. Warren Haines. He's stuck into a Warren Haines concert and he got in he somehow worked his way past security and backstage. And he got in front of Warren Haines and he's like, look, man, I know I got caught, because he got caught at this point, he's like, I know I got caught, but I tried to do this so I could show you my music because I need help. And Warren Haines is like, show me what you got. And so then on he goes. Warren Hainese heard his stuff and he's like, oh, yeah, that's cool. His records are good. I'm going to pass that on as if it's true because that's a great story. His records are so great. He's on tour right now with if you guys don't know Neil Francis, who's an artist from Chicago or the Chicago land area, check him out. And then Dean Delray, who's a comedian, is actually opening up for this on the stadium tour around that they're doing cool. But Marcus King is one of those, like old school every once in a while, like you said, Warren Haines, those guys. I know you guys are blues fans, but all of a sudden a young kid comes out and just starts playing. And I knew Bryce. I knew you would tap into that so good. Yeah, he played with another band, which is slipping my mind. And I just listened to that song today. Anyways, it's more funky. Dumpster punk or dumpster punk. I don't really know how you pronounce it, but he is, I don't know, awesome. Yeah, dumpster punk. It's a weird spelling. Just try to google it. You'll find it. But the song called Bu is Freaking insane. And United Nations stop, man. He took this funk song and this soul song that dumpster punk did and he joined him on it and he just ripped blues licks all over that thing. And I'm all for that. So it's really good. I recommend that. That's insanely good stuff. I actually heard of them because Gary Clark Jr. Dropped his name. So I don't know if you guys are Gary Clark Jr. Fans. I saw him at Bonnero. He was fantastic last summer. We're living in Austin and one of the last things that we did was it was the beginning of Austin City Limits, like outdoor festivals and stuff. And Gary Clark Jr. What he does is he has like a free festival for the day and he brings bands and artists that he really likes and they play like two or three songs and he comes on and noodles of the guitar with them and everything. Because I know Stevie Ray Vaughn's brother, I don't know it's the guy from the fabulous Jimmy Bond. Jimmy Bond gave him that opportunity like that. So he wanted to give opportunities to bands like this. And it was really cool because then he came on at the end and played like three songs and stuff. And it was just the whole time I'm just on my phone, like typing who these people were because they were awesome and unsigned. So of course I couldn't find them or anything. But it was really cool that he gives back because he was obviously seen the Foo Fighters documentary about the Exes on their hands because he was underage when he was hanging out with Wright. I think that's how it goes. He was hanging out, like in the clubs too young. And so to make sure that he wasn't old enough, they had exes on his hand. But he would come up and play with all those guys in Austin. I think that was the Austin episode. I haven't seen it in a while. But you talk to Sonic Highways, right? Sonic highway, somewhere on the shelf. Yeah, because I was like, gary Clark played on the Austin episode and the song. But yeah, Gary Kurt Jr. I mean, some of those songs, especially the last big single, obviously None Of US is called, but it was just fantastic. Considering why he wrote it and the fact that he released it. Yeah. He is going to be a force for years to come. I think it was probably 2010 and he was one of the bigger stars at Bonru and the way Bonru has a dozen different stages, same with all the other festivals. But he plays like Friday or Saturday, one of the main stages. But then they have a green stage which is tiny and off to the side. And it's usually where some of the main acts will then do. Sometimes a surprise show stripped down, just them. And he did. That on Sunday. And Tony and I caught it and we caught both sets. And the stripped down green stage was better to me. I just enjoyed it more. Just him in an acoustic guitar, tons of passion, tons of feeling. He's got a whale. Yeah, he was great. He's so good. He's so good. I really enjoy Gary Clark Jr. But I don't listen to him as much as I should. And the reason I say that is because he got for me, right. Because I didn't really hear him until he really hit it. And once he hit it, I was like, yeah, he's good. He's like bringing this new blue thing into focus, which is awesome. A few of the songs did it for me and then after that I was like, you know, I'm just not nothing I'm in love with so much that I have to continue listening. But that dude can frigging whale. He is great. He's a great guitarist. Just something about his style and the way he writes his songs work with me on a few of them, but not all of them. It just didn't catch my like for playing. I want to tack on the modern blues here and mention the Black keys.


Participant #1:

Fantastic. Except the one record they've experimented a lot, but I enjoy, turnblue is the one that you're talking about, right? Yeah. Turn Blue is the only record of theirs that I haven't purchased. I tried it so much that I boycotted it. I could listen to Rubber Factory or thick rubber factory. They're absolutely fantastic. I guess you will say, because I think we're all in agreement about term blue. But a better band that's been together that long, a band, two guys that have been together that long to experiment. You give them their props, but I'm glad they found their way home. Speaking of Turn blue, unfortunately, the person who steered them in that direction was danger mouse. And danger mouse, everything that he's touched, I kind of love. So Narles Barkley is obviously his band with silo are you the same way? What was it? The Gray album.


Participant #1:

The Gray album is so good. The Mashup of the Beatles, white album and JM. Yes,


Participant #1:

he did nora Jones little broken hearts. He came out with a new record, danger mouse, a couple of weeks ago. Okay. He's also coming out with another new album this year. Yeah, it was really good. The guys that were on it I never heard of, but they were awesome. I want to say that this is I'm going to segue to somebody who is probably one of the best in the last five, six years. Run the Jewels was on it. And Run the jewels, we saw them open up for Rage machine. And those guys are because they're like my age. They're me and Danny's age and Steve's age. And they just kick ass, man. You got like a white guy from Brooklyn and a black guy from Atlanta and they met each other and they just make such cool stuff and they got Zach De La Roka to actually wrap on a record. He's on their new record. He was on all of them. He every one of their records. And the guy hasn't put out, like, released music since Battle of Los Angeles or I guess if you want to count the covers or covers up. But to have him come out and still be Zack and spit fire and kill it, run the jewels and rage. We were at the show where he actually blew his Achilles out. Like when he was jumping up Zach. I thought he was just sitting for the majority of the concerts this year. It was nuts. He was like, I will tell you this. I will crawl on this stage to finish this tour. Cool. Because I've been waiting since I was like,


Participant #1:

go ahead, Luke. Sorry. I was just going to attack onto the rage. Did you see the clip of the fan that ran up on stage and the security card tackled him, but tackled him into tamarillo? No, I'm not sure it was recent. It was within the last month. So anyway, tomorrow was flying off the stage and he got back up like a champ. He was still playing when he fell. That guys and the fact that his mom still alive, that they do the radio show together on Sirius XM is awesome. From Marsales, Illinois. Yeah, I was going to say he's from very near where Michael, Steve and I are from and she still lives in Marsales and she does it from her kitchen table with them. You may know more sales by being close to Starf Rock. If you have watched HBO Starf Rock murder documentary. I don't know, I'm only an hour away. Oh, there you go. Central Illinois boy as well. Sorry. No, don't worry about it. You're doing it for Bryce. If you ever make it to Central Illinois, go to Starve Rock. And apparently there's good fried chicken there, from what I remember, the background alone, this livestream. Background is where the chicken is nice. The best fried chicken in the world. Which episode was that? Was that versus we talked about we did talk about reps. I wanted edges out, by the way. I kept telling Steve, I'm like, you got to edit this out. And he's like, no, that was only episode five or four. That was fine. Go ahead, Michael. No, I was going to say, Luke, to get onto your question, maybe narrow it down a little bit more. Is there a new band or a new record that just come out? Maybe it's not a new band. Sorry. Or maybe it's a new band, but a record that just came out recently that blew you away within the last maybe it's Cruel Country by Wilco. Maybe it's something that just hits you over the head, a light for attracting attention by the smile. So Tom York and Johnny Greenwood had a side project. And holy crap, if you put that on your HiFi or put some good headphones on, it'll take you to another world. I think I mentioned it in the End Rainbows episode, but it makes you feel like you're on drugs without even being you're completely sober listening to it. So check it out. Light for attracting attention. Michael, how about you? Bright? Go ahead. Sorry. Oh, no, sorry. I was just writing down when he was it is so cool. So cool. They got a jazz drummer to do the album as well, so he's got these jazz beats going over the top of Johnny, who's just a noodler, he's just messing around. And Tom's vocals coming at you both sides is so trippy. It's so cool. Check it out. I would say, and I think I actually talk about them in every episode is Jason Isville 100%. Anything that Jason Isbell does is in the last ten years. The guy's songwriting is so good and his guitar playing so amazing. I'm so happy that he got sober, and he wrote some of the best Drive By Trucker songs from the early 2000s. But he's a 22, 23 year old kid and just drank a little too much. It's like you got kicked out. He's how old now? Oh, he's our age. But he wasn't driven by a truck when they first came out. Like, not their very first Preservation Hall album in 2010. Yeah, he wrote like outfit. He was on the Southern he was on the end Drive By Truckers from probably, like, 2001 to 2005. And if you ever, like, do, like, I'm an Apple Music guy, but if you do, like, Drive By Truckers essentials, four or five of his songs are still on the main essentials. And the guys who've been in the band in 20 years, and that's how good of a songwriter is. And Danny and I the first show that we saw after the shutdown and all that stuff was Jason Isville. And it's one of those things. And that guy's songwriting was so good that he was, like, crying because he's so emotionally such a great songwriter. And the fact to see him live because that's the first time I resolved. And then it was, like, right after it was the first concert that I haven't seen since in 2019. The last one was in December at the United Center. And then fast forward almost two years. Yes, two years. And we saw him at a minor league baseball stadium on the outskirts of Chicago. We're going next Friday at the Bourbon and Beyond Festival and then Pearl James on Saturday night, so I'll be there as well. It's Pearl James on Sunday. I had to take Monday off of work. Oh, yeah. You guys are going to Bourbon. Okay. Luke's going to the Pearl Jam, St. Louis. Shonan. Well, let's all meet up.


Participant #1:

But to me, and Jason isville the 400 unit. And his wife, Amanda Shires, she's a fantastic her new record is fantastic if you don't know highway women. Her solo stuff. Yeah. Amazing. And as my wife says, she's very taxi. She is so attractive. I'm like, all right, I'm not going to argue, but she was excited to see her. So, Bryce, what did for you, man? Dude. Tyler Bryant. The shake down. Have any of you guys heard of him yet? No. This guy got picked up by AC DC a few years ago. Five, six years ago, something like that. He got to open up for AC DC. Right. And don't think that's his style. Right. He's not like, kind of a classic rock hitter. That's not really his thing. He's more of this, like, kind of like I don't want to say what I do because he's ten times better, but kind of what I do. He does this, like, bluesy rock with a new modern age twist, but he's really trying his best to keep the roots. I do a horrible job at keeping the roots. He does not. He's fantastic. He just came out with an album today, Shake the Roots, and then the other one is called 2019 Truth. And truth and lies. That is a fantastic album. Check that guy out. He's kind of like Marcus King. Oh, nice. Tyler Bryant and the shakedown. You guys are giving us a lot of homework here. Yeah. So good, man. He's so good. I heard a few new on my release radar throughout the last few days here of his old stuff, and I think it was kind of priming me, right? Like, start listening to Tyler Bryan again and then bam, here we are. I got his new album and I'm like, yeah, man, you're killing it. Like, he's so good. That dude is great. Awesome. Steve, anything new? No. I have been so deep into researching for this. You're in season eight of this? Well, every single album, I want to give it the proper respect it deserves. So I listen to it, I make notes, and I'm pretty much running it on repeat in my headphones right up until showtime. Dedicated. And coming up on season three, there's a Chicago blues historian who's going to be joining the show, and his selection is a three volume set of old Chicago blues. It's amazing. And since he sent me the link, I've been listening to it non stop, so I haven't seen anything of new music. So he's going to top the quadrafinia longest episode. Steve, what was I tell you originally, would you say it was like 52, 54 songs. 42 songs. Holy cow. How are you going to do track by track? It's up to him every episode.


Participant #1:

This man is a very knowledgeable historian of Chicago blues, so he may likely just talk Chicago blues and pick out certain tracks that'll be very intense. He's been on podcast before, so he knows the drill. Nice. That's awesome. Well, I'll answer for Steve, then. So red hot chili peppers unlimited. Love. Spoons. Haven't had a chance yet. Is it good, Luke? It's so good. It is amazing. Really? Yeah. John Tashani, his guitar tone is perfection. It is superb. That's right. What's that? I do have to ask you about the Chili Pepper. So I've been in a spot right now where I just can't stand them. And I think it's because I think the lyrics are just horse shit. Has he ever had good lyrics? And no, fleet is awesome. He's fucking awesome. Michael, pause, because I'm going to counter with Luke. I agree with Luke because he said, has he ever been a good lyricist? So I'm going to say the same thing. If you like the Red Hot Chili Pepper, it's the same thing as, like, picking the stones over the Beetles. Now, here we go. But Mick Jagger's lyrics. Come on. Shit. Right? Anthony Ketis is 43 steps below. Okay. So I always felt like, man, this is just a horse shit. Like the one song from California Kitchen where he just, like, spits gibberish for ten minutes. What the hell goes on there? Sorry.


Participant #1:

And I love Chad Smith because Will Ferrell is a great drummer.


Participant #1:

That Will Ferrell thing was awesome. Tonight show, that was one of the funniest things I've ever seen. So I'm going to say, no offense as well, especially to Bryce. John Fishoni, in my opinion, is the greatest guitar player of all time. I love him, but of all time. My opinion again, my opinion, there are many good guitar players. Obviously, we could talk about that sometime tonight, but John Trashani does it. Yeah, for me. Have you heard the Imperium and solo album? I'm agreeing with you for Shanti is amazing. Listen to the imperium. He's one of those players and one of those rare, I would say modern day players where as soon as you hear it, you hear that tone, you know it's him. Absolutely. Bryce, I think in your episode you said Eric Clapton makes the guitar talk or sing. And John certainly does that as well. Yeah. I mean, I don't have my qualms about the guy, but not on my top five. You're a much better guitar from what I've heard. I'd say he's a top tier guitars, but I wouldn't put him at the top of my list. Honestly, everybody who has a record out and they're like a band that's been playing for 40 years, I got to think those guys are all top tier guitar, top tier guitarist. I mean, he was so good, they created Michael. They get paid for it. You know what I mean? Yeah. But there's Jingve Milestine and there's Guitar Center guitar players who are fantastic, but there's no way they're saying is not a top tier. Do you actually know why they said Stairway denied? Yeah, we talked they couldn't afford the rights to the song. Nice. So he could only play two chords and then the guitar center, they wrote it into the script. But what I'm saying is there's technically proficient and there's amazing guitar players just like creed. They sing good, they look good, they sound good, but there's nothing there. I will say this, that's what I'm going I think Steven Ray Bond is a fantastic that's a leader. But I fucking hate his music. I do too. I absolutely hate it. Like, I don't like his voice anytime it comes on, I can't stand it. But I know that he's a great guitar player. I would rather listen to Los Lobos, who I think sounds similar guitar tone. Now you got Bryce and Luke. You guys will tear me apart. So lost Lobos or lost Lonely Boys? Which one are we talking about? The two different bands. Right? Oh, I'm sorry. Lost Lonely Boys. I love las lobos. That dude is freaking fans. Thank you for calling me out on that. Yes, I love bless them, but similar tones and all that kind of stuff. But I agree with Michael. Whenever Steve comes on, I'm like, yeah, this is good. If you get off the once they play on the radio, you got your pride and joys and those are okay. But there are some Steve Ray Vaughn albums and the first one that comes to mind is Blues at Sunrise. It is one of the most amazing blues albums I've ever heard and I would recommend it to anybody. I love Steve Rayvon. He's amazing. He was amazing. Check out Blues at Sunrise. He's playing with Albert King on there. He's playing with others. There's just a really good couple of live tracks on there that I had never heard before. Excellent. I could listen to that any day. A lot of times I think it's just like there's some guitarists that I think maybe shouldn't sing. And Bryce, I'm going to say this about


Participant #1:

well, you know what's funny about that too. I mean, the guy was in like six different bands because that's what he thinks. He's an asshole. That's what he thinks. Right. In his autobiography, he even says, not a singer. I have to work very hard at singing. And if you watch a lot of his life stuff, there's a lot of times when he's not playing, his hands are off his guitar. He's trying to focus on his posture and his actual body movement to produce the best sound possible because he knows he's not a great singer. It's one of those things, right? We're all given a gift, I guess. And I like his voice, but I would agree he's not like Adele, right? He's not somebody who has like this amazing speaking of somebody oh, yeah. Oh, Adele. How would we not talk about Adele? I was going to bring it up. Hold on. Before we go into Adele and Mariah Carey where my will defend and say that we're all fans of bands that they don't have great singers. I mean, Neil Young, Bob Dylan, let's go on and on. We're not technically proficient. So I will say for Clapton that it's not necessarily something where you're like, oh, I can't stand his voice, so I don't want to listen to the records. But if you don't connect with it, there's something there. Like Michael, you're saying about Stevie Ray Vaughan, maybe his guitar playing is to whatever, clean his voice compiled with that. But I don't necessarily think it's like, oh, I can't get past his voice. We all love Neil Young with that. I like similar artists. I guess to me, he kind of lumps in and maybe I'm wrong when I say this, but like Almond Brothers. I love the Almond Brothers, but I like that bluesy, I guess. I like it more rock bluesy, I guess maybe that's how I feel about it. But honestly, we're talking about something that's subjective, which is music. It's like art. Total. You're going to look at a painting and to me, I don't know anything about art. And to me, it's just like if it's a house, I know it's a house, but if it's some kind of thing that I'm supposed to think about, I feel like I could have done it. That's how I feel about techno music. I feel if I can press a bunch of buttons, like, I can't blame it. I've tried. Look at these hands. They're little. My son's not going to like that comment. I have an argument with my brother in law all the time about it and he's like, well, this takes a lot of time. I'm like to press buttons and stay off his lawn, everyone. And stay off of his lawn. I do want to throw out another guitarist that is unlikely that some might not think about, but John Mayer. Oh, John. He has an album. He has an album called the John Mayor Trio. Try. Not only that. Born and raise. What's that? Check out his album, Born and Raised. If you like the John Mayer Trio record, check out Born and raise. I'd say that's his bluesiest studio.


Participant #1:

The Try Episode is all live and he's got a three piece trio with Palodino Palodino and I can't remember the drummer, Neil Jordan, I think comes to mind. I can't remember. But it's great. It's freaking fantastic. And it comes out of nowhere because at the time, bubblegum pop stuff from John Mayer, I didn't realize he was that good. And that album was him just having fun, playing great blues that he wanted to. As a guy who checked out the Dead Company for the first time this summer with him, danny seen him a couple of times, but I was like, holy shit. And we were not even close. But you could see him just noodle and play like awesome. It was awesome. And speaking of tone, like I said, with John Froshani, john Mayer's got a tone that's very recognizable and nice. Yeah, he does, definitely. But I would just say for check out the board and raise record. I agree if you don't know it or price if you don't know it, check it out. Especially realize


Participant #1:

our blues based and his tone and his playing on born and raised as far as blues tones and songwriting, I think you're going to dig that if your high water mark is the trio and also if you go back to the stuff that you referred to as Poppy from the early 2000s, songs like Neon. Ask any professional guitar player to play that song. It's near impossible. There's a reason that man went to Berkeley, right? Yes. He is a fantastic guitar player. That dude can wave. There's an episode, a DVD of one of the Clapton crossroads things where he has all these awesome players, right? I think it's 2004 or 2007 and John Mayer comes on and he does a version of


Participant #1:

God. Oh, my God. I can't think of the name of the song. I'll think of it before the conversation is over, but it is on fire. It is absolutely on fire. He took his song from the he flipped it on his back and he wrote all these sweet guitar parts over it. And you can kind of tell that he's kind of liquored up, right? And he just like just enough drinks not to be too drunk, not enough to be really bad, but instead you're way better than you usually are. Wow. Now I have to frickin find out what that song is on that he does daughters, which is completely different than the pop version. And the pop version I would ignore any day of the week but the one on the blues out, I mean, they'll bring a tear to your eye. Well, and I will say this, I got into Grateful Dead a lot later and I'm not an apologist or a diard by any fan by any means, but I will say for him to step into those shoes and now you can make any jokes you want to about how the audience is fried and whoever wants to get up there and play. But his tones sound like Jerry and are better than Jerry. I will say that I didn't know he was playing with that band. No, he's in debt and company. So he took the place of Jerry with Bob Weir and then Bill, you should also talk about Bob Weir, how great he is. Boy. But I will say so for John to go from I want to run through the halls of my high school, your body is in wonderland or all the things that her daughter and then to be so into the blues and then to shift and be playing these songs from 1965 through whatever to make them sound not only passable but inflect something new into them. How many times do you think Althea and all those dead songs have been played to make them feel new again for outsiders to listen to. That's a testament to his playing. Actually, speaking of Alfie, and that was the song that got him to join. I saw a documentary he was talking about joining Denco and that was the song. He said he heard it and he was aware of the grateful that but when he heard that song, that was what drew the passion out of him. Love it. So, two things. One, I was totally wrong. It's actually Crossroads Guitar Festival 2010. And it ain't no sunshine when she's gone okay?


Participant #1:

You got to check it out. It's on YouTube. Just go watch it for ten minutes of your life. It is freaking on fire, man. That's really what made me have respect for John Mayer because that was like I was kind of the same way. It's like all these pop songs I'm like, there's some good ones. Daughters. It's a good song. It's a really great song. Even though it's not like my go to thing to listen to, but it's a great song. And then I saw that and I was like, okay, like, you're a guitar player first and then a songwriter and then a vocalist first, right? Oh, he's so good. I think at first he was, I'm going to write these songs to get laid


Participant #1:

out. Honestly, I don't think anything less or more of the guy. I thought he was always a good guitar player. It's just a lot of his stuff was very kind of some poppy dremel stuff that was like that you would play in the dorm rooms to maybe like make out with a girl that you heard it a lot with Jack Johnson and other genre. No way am I advocating for anyone to listen to any other podcast for music rewind. However, there's a two part episode on an episode called Let There Be talk with John Mayer. Dean Del Rey is the host we talked about. He's with Marcus King now, but they talked for about 4 hours about all that stuff about how he was perceived, about he loves the blues, all the things that we do, and how they kind of pushed him into one direction and he was fighting against it. Again, he was in one direction. No, sorry, maybe I have no idea. Again, not a mayor apologist, but when we talk about all that kind of stuff because he was I think he came out, it was like Jack Johnson, John Mayer, maybe like Donovan Franken Rider. Do you guys remember him at all? No. All of that kind of stuff. So yeah, this all spawned from the Chili Peppers. So Steve, thank you for telling us. That was your greatest album of 2022. So I think, Daniel, you're the only one that hasn't said which album in the last few years has been oh, jeez. One of the albums that I go back to over and over again. Are you familiar at all with Death, Heaven, so kind of quote unquote metal or I think they came out as like, black metal. I don't know. I don't know all of the titles, and I'm sure if the millions of people who are watching are going to tell me that I'm wrong, but they put out a record, I think, last year or maybe two years ago called Infinite Granite. And if you're a fan of early Smashing Pumpkins or even Siamese Dreams, the band, like, ride some of those, like, early Drone, even early Built to Spill. Luke, I know we were talking about that before. Check out that record. Okay. Death, heaven. Infinite granite. And I will say I've only listened to it twice today, but that there's something that hits me every time a new Build this bill record comes out. It just seems like everything is right in the world. I don't know if it's just because it's like I don't know what it is. Doug Marsh is so consistent, but he brings in different players for every album. This one, I don't know if you had a good set of Headphones on, but it is it's one of those tricky albums as well. There's something going on there that just draws you some of his lyrics. Just on the first couple of lessons about, oh, I'm trying. He's exhausted about doing the day to day or playing, and now this is just me putting on his lyrics, what he may or may not be thinking. But I was just like I only listened to it once this morning, but so far it's going to be one that I revisit. So I'm really looking forward to dissecting it and for sure. Yeah. So I've got more if you want to hear it. We're here. Let's go. Fiona Apple, fetched the bolt. Cutters was phenomenal. I don't know if you're Fiona fan, but the album came out in 2020, I want to say. Okay, she had worked on it for what, ten years? Oh, yeah, that was good. That was like her dogs were in the background stuff, too. Yes. Oh, yes. She was recording, like, during the pandemic, right? Like stuff in the kitchen or like ambient noise, right? Yes, exactly. She was playing pots and pans, and it was just so cool how she did it. Now, if you put it on the HiFi, it's not going to make a difference. It was recorded in her house on a computer, so, I mean, she probably sent it to a good producer, mixer, whatever, but it's never going to be that album. That sounds amazing, separations there and all that good stuff, but for some reason, it just hits home for me. It's from the heart. If it's good, it's good, right? I will say, Daniel, I'm kind of surprised that you did not bring up, like, the two bigger bands that you have loved in the last ten years with. Strands of oaks, strand of oaks and war on drugs. I was getting, well, one record I wanted to get to because we're talking about records that came out just with Fiona, about records that came out during the pandemic. And now Michael and I are obviously homers apologize, but gigaton by pearl jam, really? I am not a fan. I have tried so hard. 07:00 isn't very good. It's fine. Noon river cross. Michael likes all those slower songs, but whoever said it kicks you in the butt,


Participant #1:

super blood moon are fantastic. So here's the deal. Super blood cross was so good when he did it. It's a beautiful sonic release. Now, everyone always complains about ole on the ten clubs forum. They're always like, ole sucks. Ole sucks. But if you put ole next to super blood wolf moon, it's the same song. Better lyrics for super blood, but it's pretty. So did I just break the glass for you on super blood wolf? No, I'll have to listen to you again. But you're basically being the record company suing John Foberty for plagiarizing himself with credence. There you go. Yes.


Participant #1:

I thought it was pretty goddamn good. It's better than rolling Stones record that came out 32 years after they started. You know what I mean? I'm not saying it's possible. So lightning bolt didn't do anything for me. Backspacers. Okay. So just their last three albums for me. And I still love pearl jam with all my heart. They're my all time favorite bands. I would like better than Backspacer. That's my opinion. Sure about it. Even though I think Backspacer has the song that our wedding song,


Participant #1:

future days, which I can't remember what record that's on now. Future days is lighting bolt. Yeah. Okay. So my god really hates backspace getting


Participant #1:

a pearl jam albums I've never even heard of. We can talk pro juke. Michael had mentioned this right before when I said pearl jam. Do you guys know the pan strand of oaks? Do not. I know of the ship. It's going on the list. You should see this list that I've got going on the music rewind list. If you guys have apple music, you could just follow me and Danny and there's enough for decades that you could listen. I'm older than you guys when it comes to that kind of stuff. I have never streamed a song in my life. Good for you, Luke. If I could show you what I got going on back here. It's too dark right now, but it's all analog. These are my prisoner over there. There you go. But straighter, folks, it's one guy. He's from Goshen, Indiana. Okay. His name is Tim Shoalter, and he grew up he's a little bit younger, maybe early 30s, mid 30s, younger than myself. But he grew up, like, on the pumpkins and all that kind of stuff. Like, his first two or three records are very acoustic driven. I think he was like a substitute teacher or something, just putting out records on the side. Okay. And then his breakout record is called Heal. Heal. All right. And then, like, J. Masqueus, did you talk about them in your I did. I was going to say I vaguely remember. Yes, but his newer records are just check them out. They're, like, gorgeous. Especially if you're from the Midwest. They're like, perfect Midwest records. You put them on tonight where it's like, you know, like the Falls coming. It's like exactly the type of stuff it's almost like you have to say what it's called anymore, the latest what the lyrics are about. Not only the lyrics, but I mean, the mood. I think what Michael Mean is like, get in your car, roll down the windows. There's a Chris Chill coming to the air without using the AC and then War on Drugs. Both guys are awesome. The new record, I would love it. I don't know if it's in my top. Yeah, it's not as good as the other ones. I will say to kind of connect to that chill error. Roll down windows song. Have you guys ever heard of Bonniber? Absolutely. I believe it's pronounced Bonavair. You're right.


Participant #1:

There's a guy


Participant #1:

no, you're totally correct. For Emma. Forever ago. That album. Yes. Wonderful


Participant #1:

bananas. His girlfriend broke up with him. Right. He just went to his family's cabin and just didn't leave until he came out of the record.


Participant #1:

Wow. And then he became so cool that he was on Beyonce, like JayZ stuff and Beyonce and Kanye stuff. Yeah, Kanye. He produced Kanye. Remember the SNL skit where it was my Rudolph was Beyonce and Jay Farrell was Kanye West? And something about it was like, whatever, bow there. We don't care about you. And he's like, Well, I want to sing to you. It's not the best kid, but it was kind of funny that they brought this random white guy in this conversation. But it was kind of crazy how his success because, like you said, he was with Kanye and all those guys sort of reminded me not in the same way, what reminded me of when Elliot Smith was nominated for Grammy.


Participant #1:

Elliot obviously has a bigger track record, and I'm not comparing Elliott to Bonavare. But at the same time, you're like, what is happening? Does it end the same? Yes. Agreed to go. You guys like Elliott Smith? I love Elliot Smith, by the way. Same. I've got all of his albums. I'd say he's top 25 all time for me.


Participant #1:

Yeah. 22 Million was not his latest album, but the one before that. That's one of those albums that has so much going on, just production wise. It's perfection. The most recent, what was called II. That's a great album as well. But I agree with you. Forever Forever Ago was probably his all time great. Fantastic. Don't know if he'll ever top that one. Just the passion. And you could feel the pain. You said you could feel that even in the guitar they had feelings for sure. So that kind of brings up a good question because obviously that's the first record we heard from him by himself. But do you think if it was like the second or third record or do you think if it mattered if it was his third record but it was the first one you heard, do you think it would matter? I guess what I'm trying to say is a lot of bands, if they have a long track record, you might be like, well, this is my favorite record by them because that was your entry point to them. Could be. So do you think somebody else going, oh, well, I heard him on his fourth record and I think that's the best. Because I agree forever. Go is his best. But now I'm like, well, maybe I don't know. Yeah, I completely agree. PearlJam is a perfect example. I was introduced Pearl Jam as an actual band that I listened to frequently. Riot act was my first album. Is that your favorite record? I'm gonna say is your first record? No. That was my first Pearl Jam. Well, that's crazy, because first I wasn't I was a junior in high school, so kind of formative years and something about that my buddies and I would play poker in his back room and we just crank that. And that's when I fell in love with Pearl Jam. So, yes, I knew Jeremy. Yes, I knew alive. Yes, I knew even slow. But Riot Act just that was the album that stuck.


Participant #1:

Champagne. We were talking about that before the show. But I will say that goes back to what I was asking Bryce about, like Shine Down and all that kind of stuff is because he was coming out of that without any sort of preconceived notions or anything like Creed and all that kind of stuff where we were kind of ragged on before. So when you say Riot Act automatically, Michael, you know, he was like, well, have you heard? But if that's something that connects with you. So that's so interesting because, like I said, when you come into a band, it might not be their best. It might not even be your Socalled favorite of I can think of, like, Metallica, for example. And justice for all is the first record. I had one of the first cassettes because Michael bought it for me. I think it was my 8th or 9th birthday. I was at a liquor store with my dad and I grabbed the cassette and said, Daniel likes his face. But I remember I didn't know what it was. This was before they had videos out because one wasn't even out yet because that came out the video. So I remember listening to that. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. So that, for me, is my quote unquote favorite Metallic record. I don't think it's the best finance rate, imagination. I would even say I would probably enjoy Masters more or go on and on. So it's very interesting to say like, oh, right, act or coming in to shine down records and stuff. And I think that's sort of what this whole what Music Rewind is about. Like we're talking about all these episodes and stuff is I would have never listened to Bryce. You're talking about? The Eric Clapton record. Your episode had nothing completely passed me by. I would have never given in the second time. In fact, the first time I heard it was after your episode. I agree. Same thing with me. The same thing with like, who hasn't heard Lightning crashes or the live Throwing Copper record. But I would have never given it a second thought except after the episode. And I think that's what's awesome about it is because you're coming in, you're talking about different things and what resonates with you. That's a question that I had to decide for you guys. Have you discovered and really latched on to any records that you've heard through Music Rewind? I'm not going to say that I stuck to it because of Music Rewind. But my favorite episode of Music Rewind was the Throwing Copper episode that you just mentioned


Participant #1:

live, pretty passionate, the tattoo and everything. It's not like I got a Pearl Jam tattoo. It's amazing that she got to it influenced her career and then she got to meet the band. See, that's the kind of story that you want to hear on this show. I want people to work that have those kind of stories that have meeting the band. Not only that, she goes and buys was it the record or not the record, but the CD? I forget. And then she sits down, she's reading the liner notes and all that kind of stuff. And instantly I remember listening to it when it came out on the train. And I'm like, I'm right there thinking about how many CDs or records or cassettes where I was like devouring everything. And like I said, it's so cool to see that connection with people. And that's what I love about this podcast is that I do have my own personal story about that. If you guys want to hear it, it's between me and the do any of you know who Davy Knowles and Backdoor Slam is? Or Davy Knowles or backdoor slam. Backdoor Slam? Yeah, I saw the bond roof. They were great. So backdoor slam backdoor slam is now just David Knolls. They've split off. David Olsen was the lead singer in The Guitar Player. It was a power trio thing in the early, like, I want to say 2008 and on. They just were like david Olsen is like 17 at the time and he was just this powerhouse guitar player. Ended up playing with Peter Frantin. Now he's like one of the better blues rock guitar players out there. He's very small still, but over the years he's starting to grow a decent following. Like he just got done playing a whole bunch of loose festivals throughout the country this summer. Anyway, so I saw him last year, last year, and he was in Denver. So I go down to Denver because I've been listening to this guy for years. When I really started getting into the blues, probably 2008, I want to say somewhere there that's what I saw was I bought that album that year. Yeah, you bought the Backdoor Slam album, right? Yes, this one? Yeah. Okay. So that was what I came in on as well. And he was amazing. I was like, wow, this person could play. What a voice, right? Like, God, he's such a great guitarist. So listening to him for years and years kind of lost him after he backdoor Slam did this one album went through, he did like a whole thing. He split off into, like, David Owls and backdoor slam. So it was like still him with Backdoor Slam, but it was kind of in between section of his career. And so he came out that album I caught onto him again, like kind of later high school. I'm like, wow, man, I forgot about David Mills. He's so good. So I just again replayed that album, right? That one album that just really connects with you. So I replayed that one. I was listening to the old album Love This Guy, and it kind of resonated with me because I was really trying to aspire to be a guitar player and do that job and be that person. So to see somebody his age to do that and I was kind of right around his age. He's like five or six years older than me, something like that. So it's like, wow, cool. You're actually out there killing it. So it was a big inspiration, right? So I go down to Denver, I see this guy, I get there, get my tickets, get there early, like cool. You know, I got my front row, I'm right next to the stage. It's going to be sweet. So I'm like, man, I want a shirt. So I go to the merch booth and I'm like, hey, what do you got? And this lady is showing me the stuff and I'm like, do you guys take card or cash? And all I had was card. I didn't have any cash. She's like, no, I don't know, I need to talk to Davy about this. So if you want to come back in like ten or 15 minutes, I'm sure he'll come down and he'll tell me, and then when you come back, I should have an answer. I'm like, okay, cool. So I go down, I'm sitting by the stage, we're having a few drinks. I see this guy walk out of the elevator and I'm like, looks like Daisy Knowles, right? So I'm like, all right, I got to go say hello. If it's him. So I walk my little butt up to the merch booth, and he's standing there, and I'm just like, freaking old, man. I'm freaking out, right? Like, internally, I'm screaming like a little girl. I let him do his thing. I'm not bugging him. He comes around the booth to walk towards the stage, and I catch him. I was the first person to catch him, thankfully. And so little precursor to this. I was kind of like, he just came out with a new album, and that's what he was touring for. And so I really love a lot of songs up with this new album that he came out with in 2021. And so I was, like, taking them, and I was playing to them on Instagram, right? I was tagging them in, and I'm like, oh, man, Daniel is so good. You got to check out this album. So he comes around the booth. He goes to the stage. I'm like, hey, I know you're busy. I don't mean to bug you up, but are you digging oles? And he goes, yeah, man, I am, right? And I'm like,


Participant #1:

I'm freaking out. Like, God, that's so cool. So I'm like, dude, I start girling, right? I'm, like, hardcore. I start fan girling. I'm like, Man, I've listened to you since I was, like twelve or 13 years old. I'm, like, one of your biggest fan. And before I could get any of that out, though, I was like, Dave, I've been listening to you when I said that. His eyes get, like, the size of the moon. And he's like, you're that guy. You're that guy on Instagram, aren't you? And I was like, no way. Yeah, like that guy. I'm a guy on Instagram, sure. And he's like, no, man, you're that guy that's, like, been redoing my songs on your reels. And I'm like, yeah, I've been doing that over the past month. And he's like, Dude, you're so good. You're so frickin next to me, man. You're amazing. And I was just like, okay, I'm going to die now. There you go. Nice, dude. Awesome. It was crazy cool, man. It was crazy cool. Nicest. Beauty is so nice. I'm like, Dude, that's amazing. Before I could say anything to you about you influencing me, you told me how good you think I am, which is a freaking insane compliment. Like, that really kind of cool. You're on the right path. Like, keep doing what you're doing, right? So I was like, well, all right, man. I was going to buy a shirt or something. Can I have you sign it? And he's like, we buying a record. And I'm like, I was going to buy your LP. And he was like, all right. Yeah, man. So I'm like, Can I get a picture? He's like, yeah, of course. We do a couple of pictures, me and him and me. Him and my wife or whatever. And then he's like, well, give me that record, right? And he opens it and he's like, I'm not supposed to do this, so don't tell anybody. And he signs this record for me. He hands it to me. He's like, here you go, man. And I'm like, what? You're not supposed to do that. I'm like, okay, cool. I asked you to sign it. I didn't think you were going to say that, but then you did it, right? So then I was stupid. Next day, I freaked out. I'm like, oh, you got to meet David Doles. Here's my side record, right? Like, I freaked out. Well, a few days later, I see an ad, and his record company gives those away as giveaways. So Stein, David Ol'albums, you're not going to get unless you get through a giveaway. So I was like, that


Participant #1:

if you could get more. I know you're not just going to dig people up like that, but if anyone's listening and you have awesome stories like that, bring them to the table. Come on Steve's podcast and bring it out. Definitely. When Meryl said that she helped him help Ed move, I mean, who gets the chance to do that? Yeah, you get to just help them move that's, right? Yeah. Anyway, I've loved throwing copper since I was a kid, so that one hit home. Same with Wilco Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. That's been an album dear to my heart for many moons, and it was awesome to see that one take off, too. So I was really hoping to be the number one out episode of season two, but that thing just blew me out of the water. Yes, wilco and the dad rock. It just kind of skyrocketed. Speaking of headphones albums, yes, I know you guys approach that in the episode, but that one, there's so much happening. Spoons manga. It's an oral Red Hook noise, I think I called it. Yes. A-U-R-A-L. It's such a good record that they made a whole documentary about it. As it stands right now for season two, say Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is one, but Live Rust has a gigantic following. Julian's. Julian episode. Awesome. Nice guy. Nice dude. Yeah, he's got some new singles out yellow Eyes recently. Oh, my God, dude, I'm drawing a blank right now. Oh, the flood, the flood. I am in love with the flood. The flood is flood and alcohol. There's another one that I'm thinking of that I really love that came out just after or before the flood. I mean, these albums all pale to animals. Yeah, of course. Everyone's favorite episode and favorite record. That question.


Participant #1:

My wife was wondering, why are you laughing so long ago, Steve put a question, said what was the best episode and why was it animals? And I was just cracking up. I'm like, don't tell the viewers how the sausage is made, Michael,


Participant #1:

because I was reading it today. I want to be prepared and everything, and I'm not doing work from home. Why is it animals? You know what I love about Steven? All episodes, you guys just have a bond. It's that family knowledge. You guys have known each other since your kids. Let's go back to the very beginning. Band on the Run, you guys describing your grandma's eight track player. That high five system was a beast. Huge. But see, those are the kind of stories I want to hear, too. So not only do you want to hear the cool stories of meeting the band or having an awesome show experience, but also the personal stuff. I think that's why a lot of people are drawn to your show as well. I love how he knew the records that were left there because they were squared. How amazing is that? I can't remember when I got dinner yesterday, but alcohol. When me and my sister got the chance to sample the record collection at my grandma's house, all that was left there was, like, The Funky Town, Lip Sync and The Carpenters.


Participant #1:

Yes.


Participant #1:

Sorry. There's no way we can't have discussion about The Best of Bread. Best of bread. But, Luke, what's cool to your point, I think it goes back to how many times have you listened to Band on the Run? Like, how many times have you listened to your episode Quadrophenia or Michael Versus and all those kind of records? But when you hear it again through somebody else's storytelling or somebody else's like that the records that were left or the eight track, those tangible memories, which is, I think, why we're all music fans to begin with. Absolutely agree. You know what I mean? And to listen to those episodes and then to hear why it means so much and to either discover them or fall in love with them or to hear something new. I think that's what's pretty fantastic about this podcast, because it's not. Yeah. Yeah. I will say one of my favorite episodes was the DMX one. Oh, yeah. Dumb. I'll be honest with you. Like, I was never a big DMX guy. And the joke was always, like, from Marissa's family was the Rudolph the Red Nose Ranger version that DMX did and bark and sound and all this stuff. But Dom started talking about it and then meeting Dom as much as we could because, unfortunately, he's going through, like, the Holland Tunnel and the worst WiFi ever.


Participant #1:

He's such a cool guy. And then I'm really excited about him doing Hybrid Theory because it's interesting. From a guy that has lived everywhere, that was really cool. You hear about where he was from and all these different places. And for the most part, Danny and I really never left Illinois. And we from a small town and we love our music and everything. But the DMX thing was really cool because I just wasn't a fan of DMX. And then I listened to it, like, the record after because I do it probably similar to Danny does. It like I don't listen to the record. Like if I know the record, I know it, but then I listen to the show and then I listen to the record after the show and to me that's like it's like almost listening to it like a different set of ears. Even though if I've heard Quadrapedia a hundred times or Animals 100 times, the way that it's supposed to sound to somebody else. I love Paul McCartney and Wings and Band of Runs, one of my favorite records, but it was really cool to hear it that way and I think that's what makes the show really good. And I think that I texted you that I'm like it's an itch that people like. It's one of those things that it's like a good thing that came out in the world that's great, that have nothing to do with music. We just love it. I've tried, but in some of those albums, way outside my comfort zone. DMX, Pastor Brighter's Anthem, I couldn't have named you another song. I didn't know what I mean. And so walking through that album with Dom, it was really cool to hear how he discovered it with his brother and then also how that album filled the gap between After Biggie and Tupac That Void, that was one of the hip hop artists that stepped up. And then in season two, talking with Aaron Whitfield about Common, same thing. It was another branch of hip hop in that level of poetry that I never would have listened to. But it was fantastic to hear it in that context. And I enjoy both albums. Yeah, comedy is like a record that I really like and so I was excited to hear about it, but like, DMX, I'm like whatever was on MTV back in the day. I didn't really care for it, but I liked rap and I liked hiphop and RB. But there's something about DMX after you talked about it in all the different ways. That's what's cool. And honestly, Steve from season three, I will tell you this, I'm pretty excited that you're doing Lord because that record was like I've talked about it in the past about divorce and everything and all that and stuff. And that record for some reason, helped me through my divorce. I don't know why, but Green Light was a song. Yeah, but I was very excited about it and it helped me get through any crap I had to go through. And then next thing I know, like six months later, I meet my future wife and my life is a lot better. I'm not that happy about it now. Way better. Well, on that note, the Alabama Shakes episode is a personal favorite of mine. Demetrius Jamal is a close friend of mine. I've worked with him since the early two thousand s and we stopped doing the satellite engineer game with the government right about the same time. He went in a different direction, and I knew he went doing the audio engineer career, and him and his wife, they came to our wedding. They were there. They lived downtown Atlanta. We live out in the burbs. And I had no idea that he had gotten divorced, and that was going to be the soundtrack to his divorce. It was a very personal episode to him, and I tried not to let it be known on that particular episode during editing that like, Holy shit, man, you're divorced. I didn't know. Nobody knew. They kept it quiet. And this was his almost final step of closure, and it was a very well received episode. A lot of people like that one. Yeah. And I will say that one was another one. Oh, that was great. Yeah. Really heartfelt and just fantastic. Never listened to that one before the podcast, and I put it on. Steve you emailed all and I personally and said, put your headphones on and listen to this one. It's got a lot going on, and I enjoyed it very much. Another 2000s band that everyone should listen to.


Participant #1:

Her solo record is really good, too. That woman, steve, what you just mentioned there about you didn't know anything about her. So for Luke, bryce anyone listening? Steve michael and I grew up together. Michael and I are cousins, if anybody didn't know that. Michael is my older cousin by a year. Yeah, but when you hear somebody's favorite record and what it means to them and Michael and I have been talking music, I think, since we first uttered our first word about because we've been talking about everything. But to hear him on Versus or to hear him on Zeppelin Three steve to hear you talk about animals, all that kind of stuff, and then to meet guys, you know, people. Bryce luke, what a record means to you and then to listen to it again or rediscover it. Let's keep going back to it. There's something about this podcast that is it's not appointment listening. Like, oh, my God. If you want to hear about five, eight notes and all that kind of stuff and who produced what, right? But if you just want to hear about what a visceral feeling listen to a record is, or what it means to you, or what it has meant to you, or what it continues to mean to you, divorce records. The first time you heard this? Bryce when you're talking about being the cab of your dad's truck going to Monster rally, that was deep. I enjoyed that. You know what I mean? Like, I've got a six year old son, and I'm thinking, what am I playing? What is he going to remember? That kind of stuff is just, yeah, what will influence somebody else along the way? And you don't even know you did it. It has a record for sure. Music is amazing, and that's what I love. About it. That's what I love about the podcast. It brings you into this world of memories for everybody. And no matter the album, if you've listened to the podcast, you can come back and you're like, I don't even know who these guys are. Like, there's a few you guys have mentioned tonight. And I'm like, I have no idea. But I'll go later and I'll listen to these be like, man, holy crap, that's cool. There's such a wide spectrum of ages that people have brought albums to the table, which I like, whether it's a six or seven year old listening to Eric Clapton or Band on the Run or Kiss, those are, like, the first things that they remember, and it really clicks with them. Or the high school years where who am I? What is my musical identity or musical journey? That's where you're going to get your Lauren Hill, your DMX, your Pearl Jam. Sunny Day Real estate. But then there's also the adult ones. We mentioned Alabama Shakes, bruce Springsteen. Nebraska was another one. Preservation Hall Jazz Band. For me, there's so many different I don't know. The album that clicks with people clicks for different reasons at different points in their life, and that's pretty amazing to me. Well, and what I think about it, too, Steve, is that and what a testament is to your platform or to this podcast is a judgment free zone. It's two friends talking about a record, whether we just met when the cancer cameras so the recording turned on or whatever, or if you listen to the record or not. But do you like Adele? Do you like Phantom of the Opera? That was a great oh, yeah, the Phantom Opera. Yeah. But it's not like, oh, well, you should have picked this obscure indie band, and it'll


Participant #1:

put the chair going back to your no judgment. No judgment comment. There is that one weirdass song on that elbow. Danny, I really didn't pick that record to be weird or off kilter there. I love that. I love diary. Giving you a guess. Well, on Sunday Real Estate, that was one that having grown up right in that era with all the pearl gem and pumpkins and everything, I skipped right over Sunny Day Real Estate. I didn't discover it until you. That would have been hard, Steve. You have to kind of be, like, dig deep to kind of know that was great. I loved it. And I'll go back to listen to my episode, but I think it just hit in that time where I got the cassette, and then I first started listening to it when I had a Walkman, and then I got my first car that had a cassette deck, and I started listening to it with the windows down, as we were talking about before. And then you start listening, so it wasn't necessarily like and actually, all of the emo and basis of all that stuff, I found out about way after. It was just one of those things that I loved and I love to listen to. And then like, oh, you like that? It's cool. And the album cover had the peoples on it, which Justin played with all the time. My brother just that's why the little peoples? Yeah, the little people. That alone was there you go. Nice. And apparently their reunion tour is doing quite well. They're going to be at Riot Fest here in Chicago next weekend. Their drummers liked one of my Instagram posts. That was in the intro of Bryce's episode or Luke's. When you talk about the high water mark,


Participant #1:

maybe a producer or something. Bryce the Holonotes producer. Yes. Head like the Tweet or something of yours. And then Steve said, will Goldsmith from Sunny Day Real Estate. I've got it framed. It's on my fridge. No kidding. But I think that leads back to your previous statement. So if he had never heard Diary, would he have that same response to the album? I think it's right place at right time when it comes to that passion. I would say probably not as visceral and not as brought it together. But I mentioned like Death, Heavens, Infinite Granite before about record that came out at the same time within the last few years. And I think there's DNA between diary in that record. Sure. There's sort of the same guitar tones that undertone. So no, I don't think it would great points. I don't think it would impact me the same way. Sure. So Animals for me, was high school, and if I listen to Animals for the first time today, I think it would have the same impact. However, my other one, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, that was Adult Steve and I heard that album. That's a specific genre of music. If I would have listened to that when I was 16 or 17, I wouldn't have cared two shits about it. Sure. Well, that kind of brings up a good point. And to Luke's point, is there a record that maybe you've heard or tried to listen to or whatever it is, it's been on top of mind. Maybe you have to revisit it, go back. Maybe it's not a record. Maybe it's a band. Yeah. It's called a computer in the last few years has resonated with you in a way that maybe it didn't before. Okay. Computer. Absolutely. He did it at first, resonate, and now you like it. I talked about this on Luke's episode a bit, right. Because I was such a big Pink Floyd fan. Some of the guys in the garage, they were like, you have to like radiohead. If you like Pink Floyd, you are required to like Radiohead. It's like, all right, let's play. Let's hear it out. And it was just not it didn't click with me, and that had a lot to do with it. The pressure of just you will listen. Hey, Alan. Hey, nice. Oh, my gosh. You guys are still babbling on about nonsense we are cares about. Is that a rat tail hanging over your shoulder there? No, it's just Ed Koloski. I thought you were doing Ed Kolwski too. This is my class. My grandma glasses. Cool points went down. I thought you had a rattail going. Don't worry, Alan. We all got the readers these days. We all have to now and then some of us went blind early. Yeah. I was like, I don't have night there in a computer every day. Really quickly. We're going to bring Alan. But I will say radiohead was late for me as was cool because I love the Benz is amazing but completely different than their modern support group.


Participant #1:

But I will say that's the last record, that's where I checked out. And Michael Can attest he kept you got to listen to these. You got it.


Participant #1:

After Luke's episode of In Rainbows, I went back and listened. Okay, computer. I haven't gotten through CA yet, but I went back and listened. Okay, computer. And I have a much higher appreciation for it now. But at the time I was like, this is the same nonsense to me, Steve. I will say yes. Like Kit A and Amnesiac pretty much like they were all made at the same time back to back. I will say this about me and my cousin Danny, we've been listening to music together forever. I am definitely more of like the progressive rock, experimental, different guy. And Danny's definitely more of like the punk aspect. There's a lot of punk fans that Danny likes or punk type sounds that I'm like. He has to pull me into it. We've been talking about music like you said since birth and there have been times like we disagree on albums and artists and everything because I made Danny get into Rush more or like Stealing Dan. I was like, I got this exact text from he goes, are we seriously listening to Stealing dam


Participant #1:

good. Stealing damage, which I do now appreciate. Can't buy a thrill is amazing.


Participant #1:

I'm not an Asia fan. Can't buy a thrill, though. I listen to that all day every day. I hated progressive, but Danny and I, our dynamic has always been that way. I'm way more trippy type stuff and he's just like, let's play three chords and rock. If it sounds like the replacement sort of being molested by Killer ball by Metallica, I'm in. Yeah. And I'm more like stuff with like the 35 minutes base. That's how I am. What were you saying, Al? For me, Steely Dan, I didn't get into them until probably, I don't know, maybe like ten years ago. They were always too slick for me. I always liked something that was a little


Participant #1:

raw. If that's more raw, it's too slick for me. Even in a season, I like this. But even the Eagles were too slick for me for the longest time. He's getting the gloves out. All right, we can get into the Eagles here. Steve, do you want to get my wife in here for the Eagles? They're near flawless. She will be here to fight for the Eagles. That was their first concert I ever went to. I mean, their last album was Hell Freezes Over. Nothing after that. They had that Walmart release. Nothing after that. My old man, just like you, too, has had nothing after Octoon, baby. Steve, I will say this. One of the funniest things ever was we went to the show at the UC, and my wife is there. She's not my wife at the time, but she's in there and she is dancing. She's the only person dancing in the 200 sections. She's like, Why are these guys because everybody's got bad knees.


Participant #1:

You're the youngest person here by, like, 30 years beside me as I saw the Eagles right before the world ended, doing their Hotel California tour, and it was fantastic. Me, my brothers and my dad all saw them here in Atlanta, and everybody sat and there wasn't much stand up rock and dancing. Not a lot of movement.


Participant #1:

Who is the best musician ever to play in the Eagles? Best musician? Joe Walsh. I was going to say Joe Walsh, right? I say Joe Walsh. Who do you say, Steve? That's a very vague and difficult question because I like Bernie Leedon a lot in the early days. What was your answer? Don Felder. I said don Felder. I mean, he wrote one of the most underrated bass players. I will say one of the best players, joe Walsh. Don Felder is the guitarist.


Participant #1:

Don Henley. I'm just going to throw it out there. When you say musician, I mean, there's an arrangement process and, Bryce, maybe you can back me up on this. There's a lot more. And when you are the drummer, the rhythm section. I really want to say Don Henley as far as because you say guitars and musicians. So there's just a lot more to it. Okay, maybe not the best. Yeah. But nobody goes, oh, man, the drumming that Don Hanley did. Boy, who's your favorite what's your go to? Like, what do you think of the Eagles? I guess who's your favorite member of the Eagles? I would say Joe Watson. No, I'm going to say Glenn Fry. Glenn fry easily. I like his vocals and I like his early songs a lot. The Desperado is a fantastic album. Did he do? Tequila sunrise. Is that him? Yeah, that's his vocals on that one. So I love that documentary, steve history of the Eagles. Yeah. When he was just like, I know I could sing, but we have Don fucking Henley here to sing, so we're going to fucking have him sing. And I'm sorry I'm swearing, but that's what he said in the documentary. Like he goes, we have Don Fuck and Henley singing do you have anybody else there was a lot of talent in that band. And when you have that much talent and then over time, egos, I mean, you're going to have an implosion for sure. They pretty much have always been a super group. Right. You can call that because with the session musicians mixed in with some people from Poco and Flying Burrito Brothers all bangled into one. Yeah, but typically, I think the classic rock definition is more when they come from big groups. Yeah,


Participant #1:

because they've blindfold or cream.


Participant #1:

I was going to say, if you're going to scrutinize Eagles members, we should just scrutinize all the Steely Damn members that have played on albums. That'd be a whole podcast in itself. The problem is I can't name Steely Dan members of is Fagin the one who died, isn't. He died. That's the only reason I know. Because he died. He died, yeah. Becker. Walter Becker. This guy here is dead. I don't think it's still alive, as far as I know. Unless it's the other guy. The other guy out, man.


Participant #1:

Well, Alice, since they covered this, are there any episodes of music Rewind that stand out to you that maybe brought an album to your attention that you still listen to? Memorable moments? Well, I mean, that's easy for me. I mean, I said it a couple of times. That brought that back into my view, my listening habits, big time, because I totally missed that album. I got lost in the shuffle of all the other albums I got. Luke, have you bought the Rerelease yet? Is that on October 7? Yes, it should be in the Mail short when it's released. I hit purchase the second it went on their website. October 7. I got the SACD, I got the vinyl when I heard Dogs. Holy crap. That was so beautiful. It was. Rick Wright has never sounded so good. Whoever remixed that should get an award. I agree. It's different from the 2018 remix. The 2018 remix is what's coming out. They've battled Gilmore and Waters. They have been battling for the last four years over liner notes. Wait a minute. It's already out.


Participant #1:

I saw in the record store, it said 2018 remix, and I thought it was the new one. But it's read on the website that said October 7 is the official usage. And then it's like fourth is the UK release for the new October. What is the difference?


Participant #1:

Yeah, so it's next week. It's coming out next week. But anyway, so 2018, if you go to the website, the Hype sticker on the album, it's the 2018 mix. Because again, Gilmore and Waters are being little babies and they were arguing over some minuscule liner note that meant nothing. So they've been hoarding this beautiful masterpiece. No joke. I've listened to that Dog's remix 20 times. Is it that good? My opinion it is. My opinion it is really good if you are a fan of the original and you know, Dogs kind of by heart. Then you'll notice all the little things. Yes. I can't wait to put it on the high fi. It's going to be everywhere. I love listening to music in a dark room. No lights on at night, and I can say, there's the guitar, there's the drums, there's the bass guitar, everything. It's just layer sandwich. I don't know. Yes. I am so looking forward to that album. Anyway, and I will say really quickly, since Al joined, we'd be remiss if we didn't say he's the OG he is who started this whole thing with Steve number one. Actually, I have a question. No, I just meant episode one. Yeah, we've already talked about episode one. Al, I did have a question for you about episode one, though. Quadrophinia has recently surpassed Band on the Run as far as downloads go. So I'd like to know, in your own words, why you think my taste in music is better than yours. Okay, well, when I first got on, you were talking about radio head, so no,


Participant #1:

wait, let me get updated numbers here. Which episodes? Paul McCartney, band on the run and the who. Quadrufania I have overtaken you. Band on the Run is at 430 downloads. But am I above both of them? Hey, listen, five more downloads. I'm going to beat versus And DMX. Which are the next two? You have nine more than Aleke. Yeah. Hey, Steve, where's Diary? Two. I'm doing Abby. Roy. Diary is two. But here's why I'm doing Abbey Road on dark side of the moon. There you go. Diary got the crossover bump. Diary got the crossover bump from the Cinema Decon podcast. No, Steve, I thought I had two downloads, not seconds.


Participant #1:

My wife didn't even listen. Diary did pretty well and I really did enjoy that episode, so yeah, don't sell yourself short. Hey, Danny, our mom's listen to it, that's all. It no, that's right, your mom might have no, my mom and Marissa's mom, 1000%. Listen to our episodes. They are the ones. So what time does this thing start? How does it work? What do we got to do? Do we just hit the thing or how does it work? Your wife is a Jewish lady like your mom, Mike? No, this was both the moms. This is both the moms. I walked out there to go get a beer and it's a completely different apartment. I don't know what the hell happened. She went to Michaels and Target and I don't even recognize what the hell the apartment is right now. I have no idea what just happened. I'm only allowed to decorate this room. What a bang of job you did, by the way. Animals is up to 1060. That's amazing. So just throwing that out. I don't think any but Wilco is coming for you. Wilco was just released.


Participant #1:

We're not making excuses. Yankee Hotel, Fox Stride isn't. And just wait till Danny and I are on his podcast. Talking about singles, which is the 30th anniversary. Seasons is the best Chris Cornell recording period. I'm going to say that one too. Do you know what I just heard today? So funny that you said that is because Cameron Crow was talking about it. I don't know if it was today or whatever.


Participant #1:

He recorded that song as a joke. Really? Yes, because he didn't want to divulge because it's very personal. He didn't want to divulge his own feelings or whatever. So he recorded that and said, well, if you need it, you can put it on there. Best soundtrack. It's up there for sure. Garden is another one, but Seasons is one of the best Sound Garden songs. I'd say it's one of his top performers. Luke, the guy from Soundtrack Your Life, is going to have Ryan, right? He's going to have a handful with me and Danny. I've been listening to his podcast and it's kind of mellow, and I'm thinking the two of us are just going to be like


Participant #1:

Ryan. It's a fun podcast, though. He's got some great episodes. He does soundtrack. So it's called soundtrack your life. And you talk about movie Soundtrack associate. He's a great podcast. He's got one for Almost Famous, which is great old brother Empire Records, Airheads, some really good musical movies.


Participant #1:

That's from your mom. I'm going to assume that's your mom. I was wondering what that was. Al, really quickly, I'm still on Luke's question, but we sort of all went around and said, what's a record or a band from, what was it, 2010 to 2000? We changed


Participant #1:

a newer band that you're digging our record, maybe newer in the last 20 years. And I think I know the answer, Al, but I want to hear what you say. Cordovan Fleet. Now. Can you include supergroups? Can I circle back to Luke's question? Can I circle back to what was your first album that you did on Music Rewind? In my radiohead, which I will stand by and defend. How many downloads did you get on that one? Oh, boy. No. Hey, hold up. I've got it up here. Anything? We're like pulling down 335. Okay. And how many records have I done? Or how many rewinds have I done? Well, if you add both in Rainbows and Quadraphinia, then I smoke you, man. I'll tell you what, here's what I'm going to do for my second music Rewind, if Steve will allow it, of course. I think I might have do Abbey Road, then Led Zeppelin four and then darkside. Are you saying quadruple? Do you think I'll get enough views on that? You think I'll get enough downloads? Yeah. Someone does have the wall, though, for season three. Nice. That's going to be a deep episode and a long one. Season three, just to give a glimpse, we've got master puppets. We've got nevermind by the way, it's me and Danny's cousin doing master puppets. So now it's like three relatives we mentioned that we got with Cranberries. Everybody else is doing it. Why can't we? Lincoln park hybrid Theory the Wall Lord Melodrama tribe Called Quest midnight Marauders It's going to be a fun one. The Chicago blues historian doing Chicago the blues today. Chemical romance. Black parade. Lester. Jake. Hello. Rock View. Big star number one. Number one record for Big Star. When you posted that, I had never heard of it. Bigstar really inspired oh, my God. You say it because my brain's broken out. Inspired Tupelo, which inspired well, obviously, Wilco, there's a good that was a good Big Star documentary out there, by the way. Yeah. Those guys are going to be they inspired the Replacement. There's a song called Alex Chilton by the Replacements. He was a lead singer of Big Star. Okay. And if my cousin was here who loves the Replacements, he would have mentioned that. But Steve, there's so many good records that you guys are talking about. I'm back and I've been looking. I know. All right. You got to go the bathroom. Mersa was like, sorry, did you mute it? I'm like, well, we'll find out. But if you haven't heard this song from the Replacement, wasn't Alex Chilton the lead center of the box stops? He was the letter. He did okay. He was like 15 years old or something. Yes. And that was his first sort of claim to fame. And then he started big star. And I think al, you were saying there was a documentary bottom. Definitely. Check it out. It's fantastic documentary. But then if you like the replacement, if you like any of that music, big starts huge. They seem to be that mythological. Would have, should have, could have sort of bandwidth. Now was saying about influencing ram and all that. I think today's generation or not today's generation, but a lot of bands that we like now, it's almost like the Velvet Underground many years ago. Yeah. They probably fired more bands and soldiers. Exactly. That's what I was going for. Al. Thank you. That's exactly right. Yeah. That's all about underground. That's a great reference. Yeah, I'd agree with that. I think the quote with them is, like, not a lot of people heard them, but everyone who did started a band. And I think that carries over to Big enough. There you go. Yeah. So


Participant #1:

I know the answer. What's my answer? I don't know. What's my answer? Your answer is them crooked vultures.


Participant #1:

They were awesome. I would love that. That's the super group I saw with the Aragon. How could they not be? John Paul Jones, dave Roll and Steve


Participant #1:

I will say this, I saw them at the Aragon in Chicago, and we were like the fifth row. And my buddy Matt was my roommate at the time. He's like, Danny, he's like six four. And he was standing in front of me and he's like, do you want to see? I'm like. Well, I can't. I'm the short little man, but I jump and see Dave girl drum and just to see John Paul Jones play the bass. I hate to say this, but like, Josh Homie, he's a great guitar, he's a good singer, but to see those two legends play,


Participant #1:

no, that was it. They only played by themselves. That was a loser, right? Yeah. I don't know. I can't remember how my buddy got the tickets and went to Ergon and we kind of did like you go to like certain places in Chicago. Like, if you go down different ways, you can kind of sneak through and man, it would so awesome. The rumor is that they're supposed to be making like another record they played at Taylor's tribute, I was just going to say. Yeah, did they? That's awesome. And Josh Homie kind of got me too there for a minute. So I don't know if that kind of stalled things, but I think I don't know. I don't follow the social media. I don't have social media. I think I heard it through the Ten Club. So that's my only form of social media. Oh, really? The Forum on the Ten club. Which gets pretty toxic. 3000 review. I know that. Josh's head. Was he like dating? The lead came from the distillers. They were married. They have kids together. Yeah, she was married to the guy from Rancid for a while when they were like she was like a kid. That was a whole thing. Like I said, 30,000 of you. Josh's Head, from what I know, dependency issues. Then when he got what you were saying, Luke, about like me toot, or whatever, apparently there was a photographer in the front row of one of their shows and he took offense to it and he kicked the camera and it was a female photographer and he got very aggressive with her there's. That not right. Wrong or indifferent, but yeah. Brody, his ex wife new boyfriend, apparently he almost shoved him over at Second Store Balcony, which is funny because I remember the guy from Ransom wanted to kill John,


Participant #1:

apparently. Honestly, the two records that came out, like, in the early 2000s is stillers great. Women, Punk, Pong. Sorry. I love I thought their records. I do apologize. How about talking about great female fronted, quote unquote punk? Michael, you know where I'm going with this. Can we talk about hold for a minute? You didn't talk about holding the 90s either,


Participant #1:

Danny. I think you mentioned it in passing. I think you said something along the lines of hold. I think you said it was one of your favorite


Participant #1:

lived through. This is criminally underrated. That is one of the best records from the know. Kurt wrote it and then she killed him. He did it. That documentary so ridiculous. You're right. Billy played on it. He did not write anything on it. Allegedly. Speaking of, if we want to get into books, that's a great book. Yes. And I'm just now finding out that Courtney was good friends with Michael Sype and he really helped her through that whole solar deal. Luke I have that somewhere. I'm looking


Participant #1:

without the added chapter up above. So it was written before he died. And then there's a book called Heaven something. I won't be able to find it, but he pretty much a lot of what is written in there is Curt's own mythology. Like maybe he wasn't living under a bridge, maybe his dad wasn't that terrible to him, all that kind of stuff. That is one of the first I read that book over and over again. I've had this since I was a kid. So much that the spine broke and I had electrical. There you go. Nice. Yeah. Anyway, hey, just a little spot on for season three. Daniel broke up is going to be doing the Nirvana Nevermind album. You might have heard of it. It's a record that came out in the know what. And I will say I have to get Luke better.


Participant #1:

I like in utero better. I love in Utero as well. Francis I have to give you credit because I was


Participant #1:

quadrafinia episode. Not that I was listing over Al's episodes because I didn't want to throw off the algorithm, see the numbers. Yes, one episode. But I was listening to that and I think I actually texted Michael and Steve at the same time. Listening to how you were talking about I was always wary of doing Never Mind. Sure, because who doesn't like Starbucks? And what else could you add to it? And not that quadrophenia or anything of that is the same nature, but listening to your owner, I'm like, the only thing that I'm not adding to it or the only reason I'm not talking about it is because of my own fear. Now, I'm not saying I can add anything to the conversation or anything new to it. Personal experience is what you why not


Participant #1:

tell your story when you talk about it? Tell what you feel, tell your experience with it. That's what makes this podcast. I agree. And I was talking about Never Mind during verses because without Never Mind, there isn't the Seattle sound and all that stuff. Sure, it wasn't being made. It just brought attention to Seattle. It brought attention to Alison and everything. But I'm going to divorce all that hyperbole and everything from it. Like Luke was saying, like when you're talking about Abby Road, talk about that a little bit more when you first heard it, what it means to you, because it's not Abbey Road when you hear it, just like it wasn't Never Mind, it's not my eight year old buying Nirvana Tshirts at Target. If you're serious, I would love to do that album with you because your experience hearing every row the first time is going to be completely different than me hearing it because I heard it in pieces. On classic rock radio for years before I heard the album in full. Exactly. I hate to say it, but it didn't ruin it for me. It is still my favorite Beatles album. It kind of wrong, but it is my favorite. My favorite. Steve. I'm on Team Abby road, whereas Quadraphenia outside of the real me and Love rain over me. I hadn't heard any of those songs. Think about it. If I want to do Ivy Road, you think about something like the Beatles. The Beatles have almost like they're cannon. It's almost like Christmas carols. Even if you never listen to the Beatles before the Beatles. Pink Floyd. No, the Beatles are like, they're commercials. No. So what I'm saying is that would be amazing to hear someone's personal experience about hearing Abbey Road. Like we've been talking about her finger. No, what I'm saying is for the last 2 hours or whatever, is what brought you into that record. And then everyone knows the Beatles or Abbey Road, but does anyone know it through your eyes? Does anyone know it through your perspective? Okay. There you go. Yes. You don't want to be the Palmer dude. Steve we could bring my old man in here and let him talk about


Participant #1:

forcing to talk about Rush. He'd probably come in and talk about the Beatles and he would be like, The Beatles won. Speaking of another fantastic thing, you talking about your dad's pranks with Rush. That was hilarious. I don't use the term laugh out loud often, but I laughed out loud to that.


Participant #1:

It was so funny because my dad's usually not in Danny when he comes back in the test. My old man is not like a guy who's really pranky unless he thinks it out for a bit. And when he did that with the bread because him and I have been fighting about bread for years and I know he hates these bands, and so I always play him. Honestly, my wife and I like when we talk about Tom Petty. He's legit threw me off when he was like, tom Petty is a piece of shit. And I'm like, Tom Petty, I died. I go, and he's made great music. And you said your dad loves the Willberrys, but he hates it. He's only good in the Willberry. Willberry like the worst Tom Petty shit. And I think,


Participant #1:

to be honest, we all know that Tom Petty has better songs from just the however, I will say if there's one Will Bearies member where you're like, well, I don't like his solo stuff. Would you say my dad was solo stuff? Jeff, and doesn't really have a solo career to the height of all it's a different story, but a solo career. But if you're like, oh, Will Berry goes back to the supergroup. But you're not going to be like, oh, I love Tom. Right? But I know my dad never liked Bob Dylan, but Bob doesn't, like, sing enough but he likes Neil Young. But he loves Neil Young. Love. And he loves Frank Zappa.


Participant #1:

Wait a second. Elton John. He loved John. He loves Elton John. My dad, we took him to the show and, like, the end of 2019, because that was supposed to be the end of the door. And you would have thought, I brought my dad to the end of the rainbow. Like, my life is over. This is the end of the Yellow Brick Road. Yes. And then you got the gambling because it was right by the casino in Rosemary. You need to get your dad on a podcast and delve into this more. Let Steve. I don't know why he would talk. I've got a story about the first time I met Mike's dad, why he likes each band would be and why not this group? But why this group? Here's what really great.


Participant #1:

He's more am. Remember he had the Zeppelin cassette Boxette, but he didn't even like Led Zeppelin. You talked about it on three. Doesn't even like, load Tesla. Because my dad this is not even a joke. And if my brother ever listens to this, he'll love it because he goes, Listen, Stewart, it's live, sweetie. Dad bought well, eventually this will be a podcast, right? He goes, dad, I'm going through Dad's CDs collection. It's got a bunch of bullshit in here and I don't even know why. And he goes, there's like Britney Spears and, like, all this well, they're greater sits. They're the greatest hits. I was like, what? He goes, well, if they're greater sits, they got to be good. I'm like, that doesn't mean like, it's fucking music. I'm like, just because it says Greatest Hits,


Participant #1:

right? My old man still gets a catalog and gets the CDs through the mail. Nice. I didn't know they did that anymore. I saw it and I go, how are you doing this? I still buy CDs. I'm on team analog. Like I said. These are actually CDs behind me. Nice. Yeah. See, band camp is amazing. You can buy the CD, you can buy the vinyl, but you also get the digital download in wave or flat or whatever. Band Camp is the way to go. Anyone listening? Camp is saving musicians, man. It is. Band Camp is great. Hold price. You could talk about that. I'm not on it. I'm not on bandcamp. I say that. Do it. I'll buy your album. I really need to. Honestly, I really do. On top of Band Camp Fridays, they do it every first Friday of the month.


Participant #1:

Wait, hold on. Al brings up good point. What are we saying, right? Does it cost musicians to be on there, or can you just get on? If I remember right, when I started looking into it in 2019, before the Pandemic with my old band, it was a very low cost to be on it at that time. And I kind of started working on it with that band. And then that band went away, so I stopped. But throughout the pandemic it was like, hey, we're waving our shares this month. So it might be a monthly fee or something. But it's one of those things, like, people know the people that know about Bang Camp, especially, like, listeners or other musicians that support other musicians is they actually nice. Steve


Participant #1:

I thought it was every Friday, but it might be one Friday. One Friday a month. 100% of the proceeds go. But here's the artist. Even when it's not the band Camp Friday, I think the artists still get 90% or 85% somewhere around there. You keep a lot more than streaming services, right? Yeah, streaming services pay nothing as a streaming service, too. So once you've purchased that album, you can stream it. If you don't have access to your physical media, you can buy the physical media for not much more than just the digital and you get the flag download. So how awesome. I just think that, like you said, saving music. I will say, especially during the last couple of years, I went to Band Cap and I bought T shirts. Cassettes. Yes, exactly. T shirts are there. Whatever. Somebody be like, oh, we're doing a one off of dawn. Exactly. Did a covers album. It was all for benefiting a cancer institute or something like that. You can run so many great things through bandcamp. That's one of the things I need to get on. Thankfully. Season is slow down. I'm working on it. I have a lot of scheduled for winter and that is one of them. I will throw you some money. From what I've heard, Bryce, I'm not trying to stroke any egos here, but I'm digging what you're putting out there. Sweet, man. I'm glad to have that. Definitely. You can go to my website and you can get downloads there. That is one thing. Okay,


Participant #1:

I've not been to your website, so I will throw some money your way. Yeah, please go check it out. You got to get your band a tour out there to the Illinois Valley. Do it. Yeah. Honestly, this summer we're working on a tour. We're trying. It's very difficult, but I have started to make connections that I hadn't made recently. So I started a new project called Bryce Sevens of the Blackouts. That whole thing has kind of like, started its mind of its own. I got with this one bass player. He's fantastic. And he just is kind of hooked into a local music scene. He knows people. He runs security to a couple of clubs. He's one of those, like, social butterfly people. And I'm not that by any means. That's not what I'm good at. Right. I stuck myself in a room for 21 years and I tried to learn how to play a six string. So yeah, that group, he's great. And he has kind of given me a lot of different roads and outlets to go. So next Thursday, I'm opening for Shiny Ribs, who I've never heard of. So kind of like music rewind, right? Like this job is giving me this whole, like, who am I opening for? I've never heard of you. One time. And then I go check out their spotify and it's like, oh, you have 146,000 monthly listeners and a tour bus and like 14,000 Instagram followers. And Bryce, where is that show and how can we get tickets? The Moxie Theater in Greeley, Colorado. All of my tickets are on my website. How close is that to Aspen? Aspen? I've got family out there. If I go visit them, can I make it to your concert in a reasonable distance? Probably 4 hours from me. And that shows an hour from me. Colorado is the size of Peoria. Everything's like 30 minutes from each other. My cousin lives. How about Pueblo? Bryce? That's a good 8 hours. There you go. All right. Colorado cities. In Colorado? Yeah. I've been like my mother loveland. No, I'm just not lovely.


Participant #1:

Loveland is pretty close to loveland, player. The first week of October. Oh, really? Okay, cool. Well, I actually have shows around there. Yes, there is. I know there is. See, I have so many shows coming up, I'm like, dude, I don't even know. This is amazing. This is awesome. I love it. We got greeley, Colorado. We've got loveland. Yeah. Dan, I was going to say, like, Carly for sure. He said we're 9 hours away, so let's see. Actually, October 8. That's a solo show. The only show I really have in October for this so far, that's public is the 29 October. So that's towards the end of the month. But yeah, I have to yeah, that's a really high paying show. Like, that's how I make my living. Right. It's awesome. And I'm good enough to push for a lot of money. Excellent. Yeah. Where is it? That one is a Koa campgrounds in Fort Collins. They have this like, monthly things. And this one is retail, the big Halloween show. So that'll be a cool danny four gallons from I think it's like 4 hours. Yeah, because four towns is an hour north of Denver thereabout. Pueblo is like 2 hours south. Well, Danny's sister lives in Pueblo. It's a good drive if you wanted to do it. I used to audit a company in Fort Collins, and we used to always fly to Denver, where's like, Colorado Springs.


Participant #1:

So basically what we're saying is we might all make the trip out there. Yeah. Do it, man, do it. Yeah. Or we have to facilitate. What I need you guys to do is I need you guys to find bars and send me bars and venues that I can try to book into. Well, that's what I was going to say. Facilitate. I didn't know you last year facilitate places in Illinois. Yeah, please do. Michael and I are in the Chicago land area. I'm in Peoria. Luke's in Peoria. Yeah. I have a few samples of Pennsylvania and this one guy was like, dude, you need to play this blue stuff. So I got a hold of the guy and he was like, yeah man, I'll check your stuff out. So I'm waiting to hear back on that guy. But the shiny ribs thing is pretty sweet because it's like I mean that was kind of literally I got noticed last night. I woke up this morning to a text message. It was like, oh yeah, it's like 1230 at night. My face. Yeah, we got that show so that's cool. But it's just like more and more work. So hopefully next summer I'll have a whole bunch of touring shows throughout the country. But it takes time. When you get to the Grammys, remember where you started, right? Yeah. Well, I'll just come back on the music rewind all the time. Luke Bright, you had mentioned before you were working on some new stuff, you got new singles coming out or anything like that. Where can we find them? Sure. So sends A Good Man's Brother, which Steve has been nice enough to use for season three for the intro. So that's like an old grandpa railroad song, right? And I thought it could have been so much more, so I tried to do my best with it. So you can find that on my website. So all my music is on my website. Brysonmusic.com right there. You can download it. If you sign up for my mailing list, you'll get the newest episode. That may be the newest song. And then basically when you sign up, you'll get that and then almost every other song that I release I will send to you if you're part of my mailing list. It's kind of part of the whole deal thing. I am working on two different projects. One right now, so since A Good Man's Brother came out on the second, it's got over 5000 plays, I think less than looked within a week. So that's been pretty good. And then the next single will be coming up as soon as I can get approach tools, I lock USB to unlock my Pro Tools so I can finish the mix, which should be soon. So that'll be in about six weeks. Once that happens, then I'm going to start working on a three time EP, which is when I'm going to get into bandcamp. I'm going to release one on the streaming platforms and for my mailing list members, but then the other two you'll have to go buy and pay for. Depending on how the next release goes and how shows and touring goes, I may put together like a finalized copy of the CD and then put that on banking on my website to buy. So just go check out the website, join the mailing list. It's probably I just did it. I already got a copy of I hope you like it. No, I listened to it. I listened to it on YouTube after your episode. Oh sweet was fantastic. That was one I'll put it on my ipod classic here.


Participant #1:

Yes. It's like an Hrax. No, this is a Frankenstein's monster. There's a guy on Etsy, pirate Pete, I believe, is the name. He takes the guts of these old classics and he ups them to gigabytes of storage. And you can store high res music on


Participant #1:

Etsy. Sorry, Luke. We need to talk about this after. Let's do it. He's the coolest dude. I've ordered multiple ipods from him because this is my go to again. It's hires because it's no longer protected by Apple. They don't put that lock on it. So he takes that off. Luke is like pono. That's right. This is a Pono player for sure. What pilot does for the iPad is what Neil Young does for Pokemon. Read his book if you want to hear about trains. There you go. Speaking of books, I'm going to get back to books. So have you guys read this? I can't see it a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other. It's Shannon Hoon's biography. Holy crap. This is the best book you will ever read. Please go get it blind. I didn't even know it was out. It's been out for I'm a blind melon for years. But what I'm saying is, this right here is the best biography I've ever read. It's so cool. How the author, Greg Prado, I don't know if you can read that down there. So anyway, he's done stone tuple pilots. He was big in the grunge scene. So what's up? Wait to interrupt for one moment. 1 TB ipod Classics, $400.


Participant #1:

Luke, I will say this. I spent thousands and thousands of dollars on CDs. Hold on. I have 3500 CDs. I have probably 500 records. I think the music industry got my money. I've got all that. I've got 1000 CDs and I'd say 500 records. And speaking of L, I promised you in the classic rock round no, you're not going to send the I've got an alpile. Hold on. No, I've got an alpile. I'm going to show everyone what I've got going. Oh, boy. Alleged second copy of Coda that I'm supposed to get two years ago. Two years ago. Two years ago. He's got it next to the Elvis scarf. What out? This is a work in progress, all right? This is the album I promised you. This is the one that I promised you two years ago? Yeah. No, how long has music rewind been and how long ago was classic roundtable? I'd say two years ago. Happy year. But look at how cool this is. So someone in peak in Illinois has clipped a newspaper article onto the album. Is that from the Peoria Journal star? Yes. So what this is I degrade the value. No, it doesn't, because this is a promo. I haven't looked up on discogs yet, but I think this right here is going to be worth something. So I've also got for you this amazing copy of Bird Springsteen Live. It's a five disc album. Yeah. Brothers and arms. Come on. Who doesn't love it? I got myself a mofi cap. Not on vinyl. You know how this goes on vinyl? They mix that down on digital and then they put it on analog, which sounds like crap. Jgyles Live. Alex. I had that. I traded it back in. Okay. I have that record right over here. Dooby brothers live. Come on. Come on. I love the Dooby Brothers. How much


Participant #1:

don't you think that should have been Bowie Live? David Bowie is David. I mean, when you say David, you think David Bowie, right? No, I think you had Bowie live. And then here is the Best of all. So this is another band from Peak in Illinois. That's not the good times. The good times from peak in Illinois. Who's the band members? Jim Carroll or Crow? Carol, was he in there? Jackie Wilcox, Bill Wilcox, Bill Lonus and Kurt Milkwright. The good times from peak in Illinois. Recorded in peak in Illinois. At Anna they went on to fly. This couldn't be yours. That wasn't wood. Nickels. Was that before or after the high school mascot? It was definitely before. This was back in those days. There's a Johnny. What's up?


Participant #1:

Nothing. There's not a grand wizard, but anyway, I'm glad I don't know what you're talking about. I do have an alpyle going. We could talk about it after. We're not talking about Kookens old mascot. Got you.


Participant #1:

There's a band, honestly, but from Illinois Valley. Dan. The Buck acre. They got a Buck Acre vinyl records, if you like. The Eagles. You guys want to hear my story real quick? Yes, we do. Yeah. Let's hear it. Absolutely. It's not much of a story story, but I was seeing those guys play at VFW halls, american Legion outposts, before they broke big.


Participant #1:

These little halls were like 2300 people, maybe at the most. And at the time, I was kind of not really into that heavy rock scene. The people that I was hanging out with were so I'm just going along. But then, of course, with Gary. Were they playing that type of metal at the VFW? Yeah, they were already doing the whole really? Yeah. Wow. So there was a band called Taxi Wardance Loop. Do you remember Taxi Wardance? Okay. If Gary was in that group that was going to see him with you. Because I know Gary was no, he was. Yeah, before I knew Gary. But then there was also this band called Rebels Without Applause. I actually liked that ban better than Muddling at the time, but I don't think anything ever became of them. Music or every VFW that I've been affiliated with has been like, I don't know, grumpy old men that would not allow that inside their VFW, so I was surprised. It was pretty amazing seeing them around, peaking, peoria Creep Corps, those type areas in those little bitty places. And the amount of people that they drew at the time, we call it crave tacky. Yeah. That's what's amazing about, like I always think about, like, Mudding and I think about Slipknots from Iowa City. Yeah. And I want to say that they were at one or two of those shows because they would, like, come over and then they'd go over there because that's pretty close, Iowa City, right? To viewer it. Yeah.


Participant #1:

I don't specifically remember Slipknot, but I almost think that they did play a couple of shows with those guys right around that same time when I was in college. And Budding won, I think, like, best video or something. Like the MTV Music Awards. And they had the bullet


Participant #1:

makeup. It looked like a bullet that was shot through their head and it was, like, bleeding down. And they want it, and they're just like first time I saw them, I was like, who are these fucking guys? And then they're like, we're from middle of Illinois. And then I found out that the Slipknot guys are from Iowa. And I was like, what could happen to you that you start making this music and just be so angry? Yeah, there was a small metal scene at the time, but then Cory Taylor comes out with I'm looking at you through the glass. Don't know how much time has passed.


Participant #1:

It's complete duality there. Yes. It blew my mind. That was the guy from Slipknot. Yeah. About it. I know he was on the am I echoing here? Someone's echoing you. That's me. Probably me. Sorry.


Participant #1:

Sound City, Corey Taylor. The song you did for Soundcity was absolutely amazing. He's a good singer. I'm not saying that, but it's kind of like Kiss when they did a mask, actually, I said Doelle. Anyway, it's


Participant #1:

a stone sour for me, right? It's one of their newer albums. And everybody loves I think the name of the album is House of Golden Bones. House of Golden Bones 2012. And everybody loved absolute zero. Right? Could care less. I hate that freaking song. It's horrible. The rest of that album is fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. The Travelers, part one that leads right into Tired and then Ru four, eight, six and then right out of there. My name is Alan. There's so many awesome tracks on a lot of, like, I find with Stone Tower and with Caesar as well. Everybody falls in love with these A side tracks that get tons of radio play and that's what everybody buys their tickets for. But the true fans go back and they dig through the rest. That's probably the way every album right. The true fans will find those gems that are hitting the dust of the Forgot songs that they wrote 20 years ago or whatever. It's like, yeah, that is the band, right? Yeah. Nothing better than finding that B side that's just fantastic. That you love and nobody else. Absolutely. That's vinyl. I mean, vinyl is perfect for that. That's, like, one of my things, finding that track that you love but nobody else really cared about. Yeah. All right, guys.


Participant #1:

Sorry. Go ahead.


Participant #1:

You need to plug them back in. Look at this. This is analog. This came free with my iPhone. The iPhone Se, by the way. These are wireless, and it's fine. It's those damn iPads.


Participant #1:

Got you. Okay, so I got to get out of here, guys. My base players called me three times now about a show that we played a few weeks ago, and now the owner wants to John at Whistle. So I am out of here, but I'll see you guys later. Thanks for joining Bryce. Absolutely. Thank you. I'm sorry, man. You better be wrong. I wanted to tell you that I did actually realize that my settings were wrong. So you got a copy of Grindstone. I sent you a copy of Nice. Sends a good man's, brother. So that should be in your email, and I will fix that for anybody that signs up, and you guys sign up tonight. I'll fix that for you tomorrow, and I will send you a copy. I'm really excited, man. I wish you luck. Yeah. Thank you, man. Take care. More episodes. Hopefully I hear more. You guys. Thanks, guys. Have a good night.


Participant #1:

Yes. We're probably not too long from wrapping this up ourselves. About to hit the three hour mark. I thought you said the 90s was 4 hours. We've still got another hour. Who's. Four and a half. And Al is West Coast time, so, I mean, the night is young. The night is young. We've got so much more to talk about. Technically, I could take my headphones out and go to bed. He just wakes up tomorrow


Participant #1:

working on the East Coast. There you go.


Participant #1:

I will say it's very interesting to hear the difference between a younger person talking about the bands that we knew. And


Participant #1:

there's a lot of stuff that came out after 94 that I'm just like. Yeah. I bought the CD. And it sounded close enough to like stuff that we like. And then looking back at it. And I'm like. Oh. Man. There's no way that I want to hear this ever again. Examples


Participant #1:

I enjoy trying out, I'm not going to. They're in my top 100.


Participant #1:

They're top 200, probably. But I'm going to throw out filter. All right. I love filter as well. Hey, man, nice Shot was a great


Participant #1:

shit. I just bought these last week. Honestly, Luke, if you watch some CDs,


Participant #1:

I think I saw a Filter at the heart of Illinois Fair. I saw the lead singer from Filter. He opened up for Garbage about two or three years ago. And I went by Danny's sister and her husband, and the guy was like, I'm sober and this is great. And I'm like that's, right? I don't know if it's anything after Luke. You cannot honestly say that's something you listen to front to back and you love like they're underrated. You want a band that I think is underrated? No, it's asking about service. Because I have a lot of records where I'm like, oh, I like those songs. I enjoyed Filters single, so I thought I'd explore their deeper discography. And here's the other thing. No, what do you think about those records? Okay, I'm going to say this, production wise is absolute shit. So I've recently purchased a CD player that has an amazing DAC for those of you listening that don't know what that is, it's digital audio converter. And so here's my two cent for the night. I love vinyl, but this DAC on my CD player freaking rocks. All of my CDs here. I've got 1000 of them. They have got new life. The DAC on the CD player is amazing. Filter sucks balls. Exactly. I enjoy their singles. Do you have the CD? Me or Danny saying, hey, do you have the CD? We'll ship it to you. Okay. If you look here, the CD falls. They don't even have the fucking I mean, like I said, I bought it because I was like, I'm bored. I'm on disk. Gogs, I enjoy this single. Let's give it a shot. It's a dollar. I will honestly think, or will honestly say I think they got a lot of because what is it? Hey, man, I shot. And here's the other thing. He was in Nine Inch Nails touring band before he so that's what I liked about it. I love nine Inch Nails is top ten for me. Bandwise I absolutely love. No, I said top 200 for


Participant #1:

Creed. Yes. Filters top 300 is top ten for sure. Nine of Snails is top ten, period. I will say that the Hayman I shot single came out like, 94. Yeah, I think that sounds good. And there was a lot of gray area about whether or not that which is very PC these days. Yeah, there you go. Right? He's not going to get canceled for that, right? Hey, man, Nice Shot was in that buzzworthy. They played it a lot on MTV.


Participant #1:

Is this about Cobain? No, it was about a dictator. Dictator? No, there was a can you say that? No, we can't say dictator anywhere. Bleep that out. No, there was a congress person. He went to retire. If you want to cheat, look it up. There was a congressperson who is going to retire, like in the something he held a press conference, maybe a mayor, congressperson, senator. And then he held the press conference and he got up there and I called everybody here today and then he maybe in Ohio. Okay. Everybody wants to look it up. It's kind of famous enough for him to write about. Well, obviously that's pretty impactful. However, anyway, There's a lot of records like that. You know what I mean? Danny and I stole money from BMG and Columbia House to help you out with that. I'm getting bored so much stuff that we could just give it to him. I'm getting bored with music. So what I'm doing is I'm revisiting the past and I'm saying, I liked this single. Let's try the entire album. And that's probably why I have a thousand. And what I was saying is that Back in the was sucked in. But I liked that single that I heard on MTV. Yeah, I bought the album, I bought the CD. And the rest of the songs sound nothing like this one track. I am bored with this album. And then a couple of years later, Take a Picture comes out. I enjoyed this. Take a picture. It doesn't sound like filters. Like, actually, it does. It sounds like the rest of that first album. I felt like the music's not being able to even say that because that first album what was the single that was on the Spawn soundtrack? Spawn. Yes. Spawn at the time was


Participant #1:

my little brother. I think Justin had that Spawn record and I was just like I remember when I was in college. Can't you trip that guy? Yes. I love that song. A crystal method. Yes. Crystal Method was an excellent band at the time, too. I do like that song. Yes. Do you guys remember, is that, like, in the era of, like, stabbing Westward? Yeah, stabbing Westward was huge back then. Remember that was the late 90s when we were in college. Silver Chair. That's the thing we didn't talk about in the 90s thing. I always loved that. Silver Chair always said we never heard Nirvana or anything. And they came out with this record that sounded like even the video looked like Kurt. And remember, it was like 95 when that record came. Oh, he had the long yeah. Those guys were like 15 years old. Yeah. We never heard of that because we're from Australia. We have no idea. It was like a battle band or something. Wasn't that.


Participant #1:

I need to listen to the soundtrack. This Tomarello and the Prodigy song, one Man Army. There you go. I don't know. It says Tamarello comma the prodigy. I'm curious, to say the least. The best thing about Tamarillo's new record is that he has other people singing it. That leads to another recent Discogs purchase. So I got this for $20 on Discogs. It's got all of their studio albums in one. So I already own all of these. Like a set? No, it's CD. I feel like I'm watching Jack Brasky, like, open up his like,


Participant #1:

can you let me know the next time you're in Spring Valley? I'll just bring you right to my dad's house.


Participant #1:

You unbox all the UCDs you've got from his dogs. You go see the old man another one. You'll just be like, oh, I got this. So radio head. Oh, that's a good one. These are the B sides to Hail to the Thief. Yeah, your wife can meet up at Blue Jay Way. That was from actually, a lot of that's from like okay. Computer $5. Discogs. I love discogs. Discogs is like band camp for me. I think we're saving things from the landfill.


Participant #1:

It's a


Participant #1:

drug. No Elvis scarf is still here, so the dude that I was talking to at Graceland, he just kind of fell off. So if you guys know any Elvis fans that are looking for stage warren signed Scarf, let me know. Well, set the stage for everyone watching still. What is the Elvis scarf? How did you get it? Okay, and what is it? My mom's sister back in college. Do you want me to get it? They need a visual. It's in a safe. I've got a fire. Okay, we'll talk about you while you're gone. Okay. I'll be back. Do we have like a DNA test done? Actually, there's makeup on it. There's brown and blue. Are you trying to insinuate that the King of Rock and roll wear makeup? Yeah, absolutely. Yes. Apparently they will. He would wipe his face or wipe his neck and then throw it to a hot girl. But when he's wiping his face, he's getting some of that mascara, he's getting some of that makeup on there, so yes, I know, but could it be something that my aunt had on her hand? Yes. I'm not trying to say that it was directly from the King's face, but it could have been. So I'm going to go grab it. Go for it. Okay, let's see it. That's one thing we never talked about was the King of Rock and Roll, the Elvis that's never been talked about. I mean, the Beatles haven't been talked about yet. We brought it up on the show because we don't have a Beetle episode yet. On our classic rock round table. We talked about kind of the origins of classic rock. What is classic rock for someone like me? I grew up thinking classic rock was pretty much sixty s to ninety s. That's what Wrrz told me it was. Right. And that's still kind of the way I feel. Whereas everything prior to the 60s is kind of your golden oldies. What was that station that used to be in the area 100.9? Was that WRZ? No, that was the classic graph station. But there was a chance that would always play like Elvis. There was an oldie station. Yeah, when we were kids, it was the oldest station. Yeah. Christmas time, they would play that jingle Bells, barking dogs one. Yeah, I don't think Elvis you never hear Elvis up in Chicago, even on XRT. Really? Good point. I don't know the last time I've just heard an Elvis song on the radio. Elvis station on XM. It's fun to listen to, but you definitely don't hear it on classic vinyl on XM. Yeah. Just for the massive size of one of these things. So if you can see this, you're the big man. You're going to get all your makeup on it. Luke it's going to towards the end, my makeup is coming off. This is a huge scarf. That is a big scarf. Where's this autograph autograph is I've got it backwards. Can you see it? Elvis Presley. There's that. And then let me see if I can find some of the makeup. So there are clear blue and brown streaks on this thing.


Participant #1:

Blue eyeshadow? Is it blue eyeshadow? I don't know. Yeah, that was probably from the old lady sitting next to your aunt. It could have been. My aunt was very young at the time, so she since passed away. But that's why photograph is at least the autograph verified. I talked to the dude at Graceland, and he said, this is authentic. He looked at the stitches, so apparently the stitching on these things that I'm fully you can see this, but he said, yes, this is authentic. And I knew it was because I have the ticket sub. My aunt told me the story. My grandpa had this framed in his house since I was a baby. So this is real. Like I said, chills. If you know anyone who wants it. Holds value to me pretty well now because that movie yeah, the movie. And now it's on HBO. Max, anyone listening? Hey, that's what he said. The guy from Graceland who, again, told me he would sell it, and he did not. But that's not a big deal. He authenticated it. I've got the emails proving it. He said I have the exact one while he was waiting on apparently there is a book coming out on the Champagne concert alone. So apparently the Champagne concert was so grand that some guy is writing a book on the concert itself. Not the tour, the concert. Wow. This came from I saw the ticket sub, too. That is a new turntable.


Participant #1:

That is a brand new turntable for me, which has more value to me than this, because, again, the story is cool. Yeah, but you have that story and you have all this. That's how I feel about it. But I'm only one man thinking about that. You're right. And I may regret it if somebody told me I have a Decemberist sign vinyl. And if someone goes, oh, 23 grand, I'm like, what's? Fucking December? Nobody gives a shit. I love the December, by the way. December. And you have a story about your aunt and all that stuff that's a little different. I will say that brings up a good $200,000 then. Yeah. Have you guys seen the market for concert T shirts and stuff? That's stupid. Yes. On Etsy. I look for, like, an original who T shirt. It was in the thousand s insane. I have an original 1960s Who T shirt. I have a nirvana incest. Aside T shirt that I bought at the mall. Hundreds, if not thousands, right? $1,500. There you go. And craziness, isn't it? Concert, pool, gym, and all that kind of stuff. Sell them now. Sell them now.


Participant #1:

Since we're all here, let's get into the Ten Club. So I have every Ten Club T shirt that has ever been offered, and those are stupid money. Let's say $40 a piece. I've got, like, 20 of them.


Participant #1:

Can you really tell them I didn't know that on the fan club? So people are saying, like, $30 for the night or the 2000. When did they start giving the T shirts? The Imanalog, the original black with the Imanalog on it. That's going for 30, $40. I think six, because that's what I joined. The first year I joined was when they were first starting to get they didn't give out those out back in the early two thousand s. Yeah, I joined in 2006. But the fan club started way before yeah, it started in 91. Since late 90s, actually. We had a card table, or my grandparents had a card table in their back room, and we were listening to the Ten on a cassette on a little boom box, and we unraveled the and it said PO. Box or whatever. And then our cousins were around the table. They said, hey, do you guys want to join you? And I said, no, that's stupid. So that was, like, 93. Al gave me one of the original Christmas singles when we worked together. He came in one day, and he's like, Luke, I know you're a Pearl Jam fan. Here you go. He gave me one of the original. Nice. There you go. So this one here is Pearl Jam from summer early Ninety s. You could only get a ticket in Chicago. It was 95s.


Participant #1:

Gave me the original recording for that before they did the re release through the what are they calling it on when they release a new live album every year? Vault. Yes. Al gave me the original vault for Soldierfield. He had that on CD again. He came into work one day. I got so many surprises from this dude. Al is a stand up gentleman. He would just come in and say, hey, Luke, here's this Soldier Field recording. And it was stellar for what it was, the original Soldier Field. It's actually one of the best. I got to get that from you. Yeah. You don't mind? That was my first ever program show. There you go.


Participant #1:

My wife's older brother, remember, Jason was the one who had it. Like, he got it from champagne. Yeah, it was, like, ridiculous for, like, two dissent, and we had it on tape forever. Nice. It was expensive back then. I want to say it was, like, $40 back then, but I figured I was there. Might as well get it, because I remember, like, you were on the in the bootleg it's crazy. And then I went and saw what is it called? Monkey Ranch radio. Right? They did. The guy went and saw the Almond brothers in Rockford. I was living in Rockford at the time and walked out of the show, and they're like, hey, would you like the concert? It's like $20. We just like, high speed burners.


Participant #1:

This is, like, 2002. That's amazing. For the time. Yeah, I was, like, 100%. I'm like, how much does it cost? Threw it out. And I had that like all my brothers concert from on the Waterfront Festival in Rockford, Illinois. And I can't tell you the last time I listened to it, but the fact that I was there and then that started, because we used to just do the bootlegs. But if you had to know somebody in college, that would get it, because they had to be college towns that had it. My wife's brother, who is six years older than me, and Danny used to take us to Pearl Jam shows, and then my wife is ten years younger than me, so the gap is crazy. And he would take us and he would bring us to all these shows. Don't worry about it. I'll find it in champagne. And next thing you know, we have in a cassette. There you go. I've got an atlanta.


Participant #1:

They released that as a vault recently as well, but I've got the original. There you go. That was the one that was on Dissident and then Dissident.


Participant #1:

You guys are damn weird being able to just take he wrote a song once. Oh, yeah. That was champagne. That was, like, 94 Tuesday. It was rainy. Speaking of, if any of you have a 2003 Champagne poster, I will buy it off of you for an elevator. You know what? I never bought that.


Participant #1:

Eddie Veterans. Yes. I have that one as well. My dad and I went to that concert together, so I was chicago posters, same. Got it. Another one I went to. I was at Moline when they did no code. I did not get that poster. It was sold out. You want to talk about next wife? She said, I can't go because we can't afford it. And so Danny's like, oh, I guess we can't go. And then they played, and it was stellar. They did an awesome job. I think that's how the divorce actually proceeded. That's awesome.


Participant #1:

The next night, Minnesota, right? Yeah. In Milwaukee. Milwaukee, okay. It was yield, right? I thought it was Minnesota for some. Minnesota was probably the next night, and I texted you with the Vikings on the post, I think it's time to get divorced. I will say what we're doing is what tipped the straws. She cut up all your old Pearl Jam concert T shirts and sewed them into a blanket. Did you get the blanket at least? No. I will say, though, I did. I have an old quote like, that nice. And he didn't get the blanket out. I will say this, I did see them play ten. Nice. I think I remember you doing that in the verses. Maybe led up my brother and able to like there's no way they're going to holy shit. Like people were losing their fucking minds. Seriously. We could just have like a whole Pearl Jam podcast that Steve could just cut out as a whole thing we could. Do you want to listen to three assholes talk about Pearl Jam? Here it is. This is part four of Pearl Jam. The loop dropped off, but it is getting close to time to wrap this up, though. It's almost 01:00 a.m for me. Thank you, Steve.


Participant #1:

But, yeah, go ahead and I guess say your goodbyes to our streaming guests here. I'll do it right away. This podcast is awesome. I'm looking forward to season three. I'm looking forward to Never Mind and Master of Puppets and revolving the satellites and all these guys that are like especially like the people that are going to be in there and talk about these albums that I've been friends with forever and relatives. So to hear Tommy Jefferson talk about recovering the satellites is going to be awesome. I have nothing to share except beguile again. I had some big oils tonight, so I appreciate that I'm here. Thanks, Steve. Thanks for joining, mike,


Participant #1:

thanks for having us. I think this live broadcast, this live, whatever we want to call it, was just a testament to music rewind both season, the third season, just music fans talking about music. And I know we've said it numerous times, but do you think you've heard an album but you've never heard the album through somebody else's ears? There you go. You've never seen it or experienced it through somebody else's eyes. And that's the beauty of the podcast. So I hope everyone goes back and listens to the first two seasons. I know there's great things in store for season three and beyond and it's been just a pleasure talking to everybody. So thanks again for having me. Steve, thanks for joining. I agree 100%. The stories behind it make this podcast, so keep listening. I also want to say go ahead and download the Quadrofinia episode so that we can smear versus DMX.


Participant #1:

I'm telling you right now, I think Quadrafini is number five or six. So Versus and DMX are next. You guys are getting smeared within the next, I'm going to guess two weeks. Quadrophinia is up there, but you got Live Rust in there, man. Live Rust and Yankee Hotel Foxtrot are the next to beat after that. Danny and I are telling everybody about Pearl Jam versus all those Pearl Jam weirdos, the most fascinating thing about the numbers is that Pearl Jam and DMX, they've always been neck to neck. They're identical. One week it's this. One week it's this. One week it's this one. It's really neat. It really is. It's a battle the originals, the original battle. Would you say they're verses? They are. They are very verses.


Participant #1:

Yeah. That's a good one to leave on, for sure. There you go. Now I'd just like to say thanks to Steve and music rewind for bringing us all together and just letting us talk about music. It's fun to geek out with people who appreciate music as much as you do. Yeah, thanks. It was great talking to all you guys. Agreed. Yeah. Thanks, you guys for being supportive of the show.

Participant #1:

There you go. Yes. No, I did not get that there. But what are you doing next time? Next time I'll get from Drizzley. But this is organic coin. This is from Kroger central Illinois. It's organic. Your bathtub. That's right. This was a lot of fun. And we'll do it again, definitely. I haven't started recording for season three. Sometime in October. November? I'll probably start that back up. Got some family stuff to take care of and vacations and just overall taking a brain break from been going pretty much non stop since last year. Unlimited love is on your playlist. Limited love. Yes. Unlimited love again. Do it. All right, I will. I have a lot of YouTube links on the list that you keep sending. I haven't listed all yet. Well, thanks to everybody who's been watching or anyone who saved the whole time. They're professionals. I agree. Yes. I believe my mother in law was on here and she was texting me. She goes, you're a star. I'm like, all right, Laurie, you're the best. My mother in law, she's one of the greatest. You're all YouTube stars now. Yeah. I was going to say I will tell my kids tomorrow morning that I was on YouTube and I'm an influencer. There you go. Yeah. And don't believe the comments that we're going to get on this either. Never read the comments. Right. Don't read the comments. I've got a lot of positive comments and I've got a handful of negative comments. Can you read them out loud? Just off top of my head, I am not a Pink Floyd fan because I don't like the song Pillow of winds. Pillow of wind is beautiful. Pillow of winds is a beautiful song. Horrible.


Participant #1:

Another run sucks because Paul McCartney broke up the Beatles. It sucks because quadrophinia is so much the realm was like years after they broke up. It wasn't Paul McCartney like the original record. Internet comments are a thing of beauty. Quadrant Gibberish. No, that's it. The movie is but the album the movie was great, too.


Participant #1:

Someone said Wilco was boring as shit and not the show, the album. They're talking about the album. Wilco does have an album named Wilco. So if that's what they're referring to, maybe. But Yankee Hotel foxtrot. The guy said that bruce Springsteen's. Nebraska needs to be wiped from the Internet. There you go. Yeah. The negative comments are just great comedy. They're wonderful. They're wonderful. Sunny Day real estate is a pretentious choice. It was another one. There were no comments on Sunday. Real estate choice would have been aeroplane over the sea. Yeah. Airplane over the sea Come on. It's our number two episode. Luke, if I see you in St. Louis for Pearl Jam, you will see me. I will be there. Make sure we get your number and everything so we can hang out. We'll connect through the email thread. What's happening? I'm going down? Is that what you're saying?


Participant #1:

No, sir. All right. Thanks for calling me out, though. I really appreciate it. I want to thank everybody for listening, for watching Animals, for the greatest Pink Floyd record. I'm right there. No, I told him that from day one. Animals is my favorite. Before he did the episode, I said that Animals is beautiful. That's never been debated. Is this the number one? Sure. You just got to cut these music geeks off. Just cut them off? Just end the show. Yeah, just press I can mute everybody at a regular bar. At a bar. Just shit. Talking about everybody needs to meet up in chilla coffee and watch Sunny Day Real Estate. There you go. Yeah. All of us pretentious after. Hey. Yeah. My dad's house. My dad lives in Silica. He can all sit there. Let's do it. Wait, Illinois or Ohio? This sunny day in the pumpkins, right? Is that right, Fest? Yeah, that's Chicago this weekend. Next week, there's one, I'm pretty sure, but I could be wrong


Participant #1:

Participant #1:

Well, Mike is not available. He's going to be the Dave Matthews concert. Tom Petty was at summer camp, though. Tom Petty was there a while back. Is it already over? That's what I was talking about. You know why we missed it? Because Michael was following Creed. There you go. Who blames him? I mean creed. Come on. Number one on my list.
