Wow. Such awesome energy.

I remember listening to this on my first Commando. I had a Simpson M61 helmet that i hollowed out the foam ear pieces and put some butchered Walkman headphones into.

Had to turn it up max, as i struggled.to hear it well over 70mph. I even butchered up a cigarette lighter power adapter to power it.


Brilliant !

Too much music to list it all here..
Just to share what I played in the last minutes:
What Mama Said, by Jeff Beck LOUD!

After that The Treble Spankers album Hasheeda.

We had some pretty good bands on our rallies.
One was the LBBB, the LowBudgetBluesBand:).
Will never forget their priceless version of Jon Amor's Hit So Hard.

You don’t even have to like The Who to enjoy this, just watch Pete Townshend, that’ll put a spring back in your step...

Saw The Who at the Sports Arena, I think (LA California) in 1980 or so. Tremendous show. I am not a druggie so I remember it (LOL). And yes Pete Towndsend is a real showman. And Roger Daltry whipping the mic around was awesome. However, Keith Moon pounding on the skins was a thing of the past, I would have liked to have experienced that...

The Guess Who / Bachman Turner Overdrive is my number one go to anymore... Never saw either of them in person, to my regret...
The Dead and the Allman Bros I listen too a lot. Saw the Dead in Santa Barbara in 1977 or 1978. The crazy thing is, you can look up any Dead show and find the opening acts (For this one it Waku, Elvin Bishop and Warren Zevon who were all great by the way) and the playlist.
Those are who I turn on with Pandora 95% of the time.

I like that one SugarLoaf song "Dont Call Us", it is semi-autobiographical. The best is to listen to it while watching in this quirky stop action music vid. Pretty bubble gum, and nothing like Green Eyed Lady, but it is funny and catchy. It also features in the beginning a touch tone phone call being made to an unlisted number (at the time) of CBS records as a pay back of sorts for the subject of the song.

I know: 'Remastered Motorhead' may seem a pointless exercise to some, but their 40th anniversary releases are well worth the effort....
Apart from the most recent: 'Ace Of Spades' Alas their best known album is a total let down in it's reissued form, maybe the vinyl version benefits but the CD is lifeless compared to the 2005 release.

Fair spoiled my Xmas :-(

If I had to pick one album only that I could keep, it would be the Grateful Dead - American Beauty..... it is just beautiful.
