Music for the Masses

Music, books, movies, TV, games, hobbies, food, and potent potables. And forum games! Pour a drink, put on your smoking jacket, light a pipe (of whatever), and settle in.

My old grandad passed on today. 94 years old, played for the equivalent of the NZ national cricket team in WW2 (air force), stubborn and staying in his own home to the last. The latter was real stupid old man stuff.

Something lonesome is appropriate. The country musician who popularised that term was really onto something.

Thanks dudes.

I've probably posted this before, but it's a really good country-boogie mix:

Belated condolences, db. Sounds like an interesting guy. Did you get to see him a lot?

Supposedly a new TOOL album at the end of the month. I'm curious what it will sound like. 14 years is a long time between albums, and 10,000 Days never really grabbed me.

Tool is the ultimate dad metal band.

Or neurosis if the dad is a software developer for a startup app that tracks your craft beer drinking.

Hmmm. What are the other categories here?

I mean, the Dad Prog title has gotta be Porcupine Tree / Steven Wilson, although I will accept wrong arguments for Opeth and Dream Theater.

There's no way that Waters and Mason played the rhythm section on The Wall. Gilmour is probably the only one who's on the album. Even the trademark Waters bassline is doubtful.

The bassline at the start of Comfortably Numb is way too warm and smooth to be Waters.

I can get into this kind of conspiracy. Who do you played most of the bass parts? Gilmour? Unknown studio ace?
