MUSICIANS: Who are some of your favorite ones?
Posted 22 May 2004 - 12:03 AM
Elvin Jones, the great drummer with the classic Coltrane Quartet.
Rest In Peace, you bad-ass you
P.S. "Sundia"=Rest in Peace in Kobaian, the language invented by another of the drummers on my list, Christian Vander of Magma...got the pic from their site, Elvin was Vander's first drum teacher when he was a wee lad.

Som many of my fav's here are redundant that I will only mention those who I think have been left out:
Joe Tex (a poor man's James Brown, but no less a genius)
Fugazi (The Godfathers of Modern Punk)
Ray Charles (God got tired of listening to the records and recently demanded a live show)
Rollins Band (auditory amphetimines)
Clifton Chenier (the Jimi Hendrix of the zydeco accordian....no, it IS possible!)
Smokin' Joe Kubek Band w/ Bnois King (the Lone-Star-State heir apparent to the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn)
Little Charlie & the Nightcats (Blistering westcoast jump blues....Little Charlie Baty slays 'em with the theme from "Batman" for an encore!)
Alejandro Escovedo (A thinking man's Bob Dylan)
Nils Lofgren (I'm not capable of further comment)
Derek Trucks Band (see comment above)
Lightenin' Hopkins (The inspiration for all of the ZZ Top songs you ever dug)
Freddie King (Texas Blues Giant)
Jim Carroll Band (NYC 80's punk visionary poet)
George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers (Modern slide guitar at its finest)
I could go on and on....

I've posted it here a few times, but I don't know if anyone ever checked it out. The link sends you to a page with some video footage that I've never been able to open up, and a full concert in MP3, divided in 3 parts, and all 3 in one big file.
This stuff is just Drums and Guitar, and it's nucking futs! It may be a bit too much to take...super-fast Heavy Metal fragments going at light-speed. But if you can wrap your head around it, this guy's doing shit on the level of a kind of Thrash-Metal Coltrane....so many ideas going by that you gotta pay attention to catch it all.
In fact, if you like Coltrane's "Interstellar Space" album, I think you'll like this too
I don't think you can right-click and save the file, so if you like it, get your tape-decks connected to the PC. And if you know a way I can grab the MP3 without needing a tape deck, please let me know.
My friend described it as "The sound of a million spaceships colliding at once", so be warned For adventurous listeners only!

-crap, I should stop. I'm leaving out so many great ones though.
As far as instruments, I jam on the:
Bass- Rock, funk, classical
Guitar(acoustic preferably)- Rock, classical
What would the world be without music? I love it all, excluding country.
