Alas! Although I have not been in bar bands since retiring a decade or so ago, I still needed a musical outlet; hence, I started the Dark Elf File, a music/literature/film blog, six years ago (just celebrated its anniversary last month):
Not knowing where to put this, I suppose this is the best sub-forum. My latest article is the Greatest Albums of the 21st Century: 2000 - 2013, Part One. Just to show you what I've been listening to this past century (other than old Tull remasters).
"Amplified Edith Bunker" is a disturbingly accurate description.
Nice list. Can't help but be happy when four of my favorite bands receive accolades (Tull, Yes, Tool, Nirvana). Even good old Henry Rollins gets a nod. Since the sharing of our own favorites is encouraged in the final note, I'll mention that Rush's "Limelight" always begins playing in my head when people discuss great opening riffs.

itullian: Is there a section/thread where Ian's lyrics and poetry can be discussed?
Jul 2, 2021 21:27:57 GMT
nonrabbit: Hi itullian, because it's such a big subject Ian's lyrics are discussed on just about every thread. There are some old threads - Cross Referenced; Books/Poems that Influenced IA's Lyrics; >>

nonrabbit: You can also use the Search button - top left, and although it looks a bit of a faff - I use the first box - "WHAT"... type in "Lyrics" Ignore the "WHERE" box and go to "WHEN" and I usually specify something like 8000 days>>>

steelmonkey: Don't be sad, Brits. When my sports teams lose I just remember that sports are just soap opera for men, with no writers, to sell beer and cars.

steelmonkey: When a team I support wins, sports are good diversion and apt metaphors for life...when my team loses? See above.

steelmonkey: Montreux live album: no audience recognition nor response to easy hint of Budapest coming up or opening notes. Tell me...what is wrong with people? What Tull fan in 2003 doesn't have the sense to express sheer joy at onset of Budapest,live?
