Chris, I fully agree with your statements above. Pondering what Mag would sound like wihtout an orchestra is: first, silly because they wouldn't have produced incomplete music, and second, a poor argument because it is the same as wondering what CTTE would have sounded like without Howe. Unfortunate...

Thanks, Relayer. I noticed that later on in the day, tried to hook up to ticketcrapper, and was stuffed. I needed a presale password. I'm not a member of Rush.com, so I'll have to wait for general sale. I see they'll be in Vegas! Wish Vegas wasn't so far away. I'll most likely go to Marysville...onl...

Jack, I like the sound of Ani DeFranco. Never heard of her, but your description of the music sounds yummy (electric alternative folk).

DT, i'd love to see Dream Theater. Damn, I wish they'd come around here again. Hope you have a great show. I've heard they are simply divine.

Yet, another dinosaur awoken.

The Ladder? I remember I loved this album when it came out. Listened to it bigtime for months, then...well, I haven't listened to it from start to finish since.

So, the Ladder, just a fling? A one-album stand? A fleeting memory?

Great idea. We do need Yes on VH-1. How do we get this done? Emails obviously didn't work, but maybe in mass quantities, they might. Any ideas?

While it's not all live, I really like Rattle and Hum from U2. The video is excellent cinemaphotography and the music is superb.

Otherwise, I don't too many live albums. I'll check my collection and get back to you.

Only bracket 2 gave me a problem. Gates is a great one, of course, but I'm partial to slower/acoustic work.
