Re: “Inside Brian Wilson

The late Terry Melcher may have summed up best when observing that if Brian Wilson had lived in the 1700's, he'd have been revered as one of the greatest musical geniuses that ever lived. Unfortunately, he existed in our disposable era when stardom is fleeting and celebrity is acknowledged with little or no thought.

Re: “Inside Brian Wilson

There will NEVER be enough that can be said bout Brian Wilson. Calling him the greatest is even an understatement. Brilliant beyond any recognition, his music on a level thats ingrained permanently and infinitely.

Re: “A farewell to the Ancient Mariner

English Simon Here. From Manitou now. Yes I was one of those transplants who wondered in there one Saturday night about 10 years ago and came across A Newsense Gig. The warmth and acceptance I felt straight away overwhelmed me. Plus the awesome Music that blew me away. Iv'e always had A real passion for Music and Dancing. Over the past 10 Years I have made so many good friends, Heard soo many great artists perform ,Danced until my bare feet ached, Enjoyed soo many great bar staff, Had so many good laughs, and made so many great memories too numerous to mention. My hat with all the pins on it is already crying for the "Last voyage". Thank you Manitou, and thank you Ancient Mariner for "The Long Strange Trip It's Been". " So many Roads" brought so many of us "Weirdos and Freaks" together on those Saturday Nights. I love you all. " Don't tell me this town ain't got no heart". One last quote from Jerry Garcia. "Don't cry because It's all over, Rejoice In the fact that you actually got to be there." God Bless Newsense, Joe Johnson and The Legendary ANCIENT MARINER.
Namaste..... Simon Keyte.

Re: “Richard Shindell on singing about Ayn Rand and viewing America from abroad

I would point out that Rand's opinion about tobacco when she wrote "Atlas Shrugged" in the 1940s and 1950s was just that: an opinion. It was not a philosophical principle and is not part of her philosophy, Objectivism. She weighed the possibility of harm against the pleasure that smoking gave her and chose to smoke. Tragically, that did not end well for her although it does provide opportunities for puerile humor at her expense.

Re: “Shine on brightly

I haven't cried, i couldn't cry until I read this....i love you sis. Long talks over the phone sharing your emotional pain with me while I endured my own in the sorrowful hills of Pennsylvania. I heard you, you felt me a sisterhood as I watched you grow from Natasha Spence to ItsRealLight, from silly sleep overs to stages and bright lights. Peace Love and Light my friend...you will sing again on that great getting up morning. Who could ever forget........

Re: “Thus spoke Shagrath

Awesome, very good interview! This band is one of the originators of this genre and although I'm not a big fan of Abrahadabra-- Dimmu is still and will always be heads above so many of the other black metal bands. Saw them for the first time last Saturday at The Gothic and they were everything I thought they'd be and more!!! EPIC!!!! This band will not be ignored!!!!

Re: “Richard Shindell on singing about Ayn Rand and viewing America from abroad

In other words, this take-down is nothing of the kind since the songwriter attacks a straw man and lies about it.

Re: “Toad the Wet Sprocket's Glen Phillips on success, depression and going it alone

Leaving Old Town,wow, I really like this song. Glen Phillips is a master songwriter,one of the best in my opinion. I just saw Toad, here in VA. Beach last week & what a show! His demeanor is that he truly appreciates the love his fans send out. That smile on his face at the end of each song performed, just melted my heart. His lyrics are spiritually uplifting. His music brings tears to my eyes at times. I love everything he has ever written & still exploring all of his solo & collaboration music. He walked right past me after their show last week, towards his tour bus, & I was overcome with respect & admiration. Of course I blurted out " thank you for coming here to play, you guys are awesome, I'm a fan from WAY back", & felt stupid. I was just overwhelmed with emotion seeing him so close, remembering when I was 19 & first saw the Walk on the Ocean video & (total crush) I had on this guy- just something about him that melts my heart, and I am not about being a groupie girl. I just love everything about Glen Phillips. He smiled at me & it was genuine. Thank you for your beautiful soul & awesome music all these years.

Re: “James McMurtry on Lou Reed, gun control and why Leonard Cohen must die

Yes, he's a lefty. But I love the guy. When he wrote "...No I hate the men sent the jobs away.", I was tempted to write to him and ask if he hated the politicians that raised our corporate tax rate to be the highest in the world. "TAX THE RICH" --- doesn't that have a familiar ring?
However, I doubt he sees it that way. I will avoid going to his show simply because I don't feel like sitting through a bunch of political commentary between songs. But, I won't stop listening to his excellent music.

Re: “Inside Brian Wilson

Thanks Darian Sahanaja! I watched the documentary showing your total involvement and encouragement in getting Brian to finally complete, produce and bring Smile to the world. You are very dedicated and obviously a close friend.

Re: “Inside Brian Wilson

I can't believe that I will be able to shake his hand in a couple weeks and thank him for all his music and his story has done for my life.

Re: “Next of skin: Total Annihilation returns from the dead

Apul, do your research before you make a statement like that. If you don't know anything about the skinhead subculture then don't talk about it, you are clearly showing you ignorance on the subject.

Re: “George Winston denies 'father of new age' reputation

It is sad. But you can go to Stargazer's and probably see a George Winston tribute act........

Re: “George Winston denies 'father of new age' reputation

Gotta go to Boulder to see a good show. There are TWO shows over in Grand Junction at a nice winery we've been to, might be worth the trip. But no shows here. Sad.

@siggie Go to his show. I just went last night and there was just great music. There's no need to miss out because of that fear. If you love the guy, go listen to him.
