Was it Canned Heat that did Goin' Up the Country?     Well they were not really the first. Nope --  Henry Thomas a.k.a. "Ragtime Texas" from Big Sandy, Texas.

Speaking of great vocalists, this woman is incredible. Another from the greatest open air music festival on earth. Wacken...

 

 I've seen Nightwish and I don't know how tall Floor Jansan is but I'm 6'5 and we seemed to be eye to eye.

 

Another highlighting her abilities.

 

Floor is 6’ and all awesome!

Been trying to see them live for quite a few years, its not easy to coordinate 

Tarja was no slouch either.

yeah, Floor likes to wear heels so that's probably why we were close to eye to eye.

 

Seeing Nightwish live was a bucket list event for me.

 

Tarja was great, I like Floor better ;)

 

The last show with Tarja.. I have the dvd.. The entire band knew they were firing her after this show... She had no idea it was coming. The music business is a shitty business..

My parents had front row seats for "Phantom" with original cast including Michael Crawford in London secured by my British citizen sister who lives W of there in High Wycombe. They said that when they were waiting for it to get started the stage looked so shabby they wondered what they had gotten into. But then when the chandelier lit up and rose from the floor right up over their heads and it transformed the stage, they were mesmerized from that point on.

Had to end it with something not.

Bob Seger's live Bullet came out in 1976...I'm still a huge fan.. Our entire family saw Bob here when he was 73. Great Show as always !

Bob will turn that magic year of 76.. this May.. That Rockin Robert's voice ain't changed one bit..

Visited Bob's Sarasota residence a few yrs back in a professional capacity.  Nice trophy wife 😊 Decent fella..

Saw RUSH blow him away as an opening act back in the AFTK days..

 

If you have to sit thru your set and your name isn't Jeff Healey then maybe it's time to pack it in.. ;)

I met Dio, backstage at the Cleveland Public Hall in 1988. The year I graduated high school .A great guy and cool to hang out with. 
One of the most unmistakable, and great voices of all time.

Another one that Nipper can erroneously claim to be a KISS wanna be..

 

Nipper, sometimes you really should do yourself a favor and just STFU,  and not hit "submit reply"  🤣

KISS. one of the most OVERRATED bands of all time 

While they were one of the most marketable bands of all time. They are one of the least musically talented. They are the Monkeys of hard rock

Sure they could sell lunch boxes, pinball machines, and caskets, their music is lame and amateur at best

Save for the actual real range and vocal talent along with a surrounding band that weren't mediocre musicians... 

I mean, sure.  Other than that you're spot fucking on.  

 

P.S.  I do love me some 70's KISS.
