Aqualung1989: Hey steelmonkey, do give Irish Heartbeat a chance, it's by Van Morrison & The Chieftains... I'm not a big fan of Van Morrison myself, but that album is pure gold. Nov 19, 2014 11:40:47 GMT *
JTull 007: I hear Van Morrison every day on FM radio here. They sometimes play some TULL if I get lucky. Nov 19, 2014 12:43:38 GMT
nonrabbit: He's ok..ish, overrated and an arrogant t**ser Nov 20, 2014 9:31:53 GMT
steelmonkey: I never understood either Morrison ( Van, Jim). Take (took) themselves too seriously and got stuck in psuedo-poet poses.....Give a self-effacing blabbermouth like Rick Wakeman anytime ( I'm reading his hilarious book). Nov 20, 2014 16:26:51 GMT
steelmonkey: Wakeman's book is called 'Grumpy Old Rock Star',,,,how did he beat Ian to that ? Nov 20, 2014 17:19:18 GMT
JTull 007: Ian's not grumpy, just a little over concerned from time to time. He thinks there are too many fans that don't understand what H.E. is all about. O_o Nov 20, 2014 18:22:41 GMT
tootull: Van Morrison's not grumpy. HE's just misunderstood. (two for fun) Nov 20, 2014 19:32:59 GMT
jackinthegreen: Van the Man is superb live, seen him twice, Avalon Sunset, and Enlightenment tours. Mind you, that's a bloody long time ago.... :D :D :D Nov 20, 2014 23:55:48 GMT
jackinthegreen: Unlike Dylan, who WAS crap......... (puke) Nov 20, 2014 23:56:24 GMT
Aqualung1989: Yeah I have a cousin who went to a Dylan concert and said he was a total asshole. Nov 21, 2014 11:41:35 GMT
tootull: When your back's to the wall, and your luck is your all, then side with whoever you may. Seek that which within lies waiting to begin the fight of your life that is everyday. Nov 21, 2014 13:57:32 GMT
steelmonkey: I've seen Dylan live Good, Bad and Ugly....Once with Paul Simon who blew him off the stage....Every now and then in an obscure, low profile location, Dylan will shine.He usually craps out in big attention gigs. Nov 21, 2014 18:03:23 GMT
tootull: Incomparable = Ian Anderson/Jethro Tull Nov 21, 2014 18:30:57 GMT
jackinthegreen: Dylan is a brilliant writer of songs, and can produce nice studio versions of them, but IMO he is not a good live act, I dont know why, maybe a few reasons for this, but, for example, I absolutely love the single release, Lay Lady Lay, (superb), but live Nov 22, 2014 0:07:23 GMT
jackinthegreen: releases are absolute carp........;) Nov 22, 2014 0:08:00 GMT
tootull: Now how about a little light music to chase it all away? To chase it all away. Nov 22, 2014 15:57:50 GMT
Aqualung1989: Dylan gets tiring though. I mean, I do love some of his stuff (Don't Think Twice, It's Alright may be the most moving song I've heard), but usually after twenty or thirty minutes of Dylan I just need to listen to something else. Just a personal opinion. Nov 22, 2014 19:49:11 GMT
steelmonkey: I'm with A-89..Many masterpieces ( Don't Think Twice, Idiot Wind, I and I), many merely great but too much chaff and too few good live performances....whether song or concert. Nov 22, 2014 22:49:10 GMT
Aqualung1989: Chaff... that's exactly the word I was looking for. Nov 23, 2014 9:03:00 GMT
