Music favs

 
This is the best website for people with an Ostomy. So much understanding.

Today I was trying to decide what my 2 favorite albums are and what my 2 favorite live concerts were...

I finally decided that my current favorite albums are: U2 - Achtung Baby and Sting - Fields of Gold.

My 2 favorite concerts were both in Houston:    The Eagles and Tom Petty

What are your favorites?????? 🎼🎤🎸🥁🎹🎧

 

Geez, I might have to think about the albums part of it for awhile. 🤔 for concerts, I’ve only been to 1 in my life so I guess that’s my favorite…..IceT /Bodycount.

There was an Eagles album way back when that I used to listen to all the time when I was a kid . IceT’s Rhyme Pays is pretty tough for me to overlook. 

 

Mmmmm that's a thinker, my faves can change on a daily basis but if it's most played records, flicking through my albums would have to say the top 2 over the years would have to be:

Queen - A Night at the Opera (naturally enough for Bohemian Rhapsody but Brian May does the vocals on the song '39 which is a definite fave).

Kate Bush - The Hounds of Love 

As for live concerts the top 2 would have to be Elton John and Bon Jovi (back in the 90's when Jon lopped off his big hair and all of sudden was as sexy AF!) - my bestie and I had seats right up front near Richie Sambora who she claims was giving her the eye - yeah nah mate that was me he was looking at, LOL!  🤣

 

The Eagles... Tom Petty... what could be better!  Good choices, CircleC.  

 

Let’s see, two concerts I paid for and loved were Jane’s Addiction in Cheney Washington in 1990 and a tie between Queens of the Stone Age at the Gypsy Tea Room in Dallas in 2006 and the Beastie Boys everytime I saw them from 1989-2006.

As far as Albums go it’s Queens of the Stone Age Rated R and the Beastie Boys Paul’s Boutique, fun fact it was also one of Miles Davis favorite Albums, honorable mention Steely Dan live in America the back album cover is of them playing at The Gorge at George, Washington, I also happened to be at that show and in that picture although I can’t find me in it 

 

Hi all i would say bob seger- live bullet and jimi hendrix -are you experienced, as for concerts zz top and the last one we went to bob seger.

I'll have to admit that I have never heard a Beastie Boy's album but on yours and Miles Davis' recommendation I will give it a go!

I too enjoyed Bob Seger in concert.  No bells and whistles stage production but his voice was mesmerizing!

I'll have to check his album out!

(I am only familiar with him as Tutola in SVU.)

 

That's a really tough question and tough to narrow down. In terms of albums I could always listen to and never get tired of, I'd choose Aja by Steely Dan and That's The Way Of The World by Earth, Wind and Fire. Favorite live concerts are the Flaming Lips and a Talking Heads cover band (I never got to see TH live) called Start Making Sense. Can we have other categories? Best concert I missed most of because I was nineteen and imbibing? Jackson Browne (I caught the last two songs.) Best concert where my ex-boyfriend told me he cheated on me, right before the curtain went up? Pat Metheny.😉

 

Definitely Pink Floyd (almost every album).

As far as a live show-Sky show 8 in San Diego ca. like 8 bands

Ice-T is an absolute legend in the rap game, Body count is his all black metal band. I saw Jane’s Addiction and Body Count together at Lollapalooza 1 and both bands came out for an encore and did a Sly and the Family Stone cover of “Don’t call me nigger, whitey” it was incredible

I would start with “the in sound from way out” not a lot of rapping mostly instrumental and yes they play their own instruments. Paul’s Boutique is over 30 years old and I’m still hearing new things each listen.”Check your head” is the third album in their discography and the one where they started playing their own instruments again and a great album. 
I hope these tips help, they are an acquired taste.

I’m partial to the Kate bush track Babooshka. There was a roadie I used to work with and he was always coming through Seattle with these big metal bands and once we got the show set up to tune the PA to the room he played Babooshka so loud the chandeliers would rattle in our old theater but it was also very funny, here we are getting ready for a theater full of metal heads and we are listening to Kate Bush!

Geez.....nice timing on that last one!😳

Steely Dan and Earth Wind and Fire remind me of two additional greats:  Dire Straits and Chicago😄

 

I would find it impossible to pick only two favourite albums, but up high on my list would be Madman Across the Water, Elton John, Rumours, Fleetwood Mac, Rubber Soul, The Beatles, Desperado and Hotel California, Eagles, Full Moon Fever and Damn the Torpedoes, Tom Petty.

As far as concerts go, yes, I was lucky enough to see Tom Petty too, pretty awesome.  Would have loved to have seen the Eagles.  Among my best, Led Zeppelin, Elton John, The Who, The Stones.  

Wish I could have seen The Police while they were still together.  The Eagles are coming to Vancouver shortly, and I am tempted, but seeing them without Glen Fry would be hard.

Have loved her for over 40 years ever since Wuthering Heights, her music is so avant garde and " out there", always an underlying story whether it's Heathcliff or Houdini!

Glad to see she's had a resurgence recently thanks to "Stranger Things" on Netflix with Running Up That Hill.

Below is one of my all time faves.

The Fixx, The Thompson Twins and The Police was my very first concert. Synchronicity tour, so last one before Sting dumped the band!

 

Still thinking about fav albums but my 2 fav live concerts were Bob Seger and the Rolling Stones. 😎🎸🎶💓

Oh, the Synchronicity tour!  You lucky dog.

 

My 2 favorite albums? Impossible to pin down. I'd have to go with anything by Traffic and The Moody Blues.

Concerts? In 2011, Eric Clapton played with Wynton Marsalis and The Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra. JALCO included the incredible Victor Goines (sax & clarinet). In the second half of the concert, they were joined by Taj Mahal. Just wow!

Also in 2011, Hot Tuna played at The Tilles Center For The Performing Arts. Invited guests included Charlie Musselwhite and G.E. Smith. Incredible...

I'm a Tuna fan, we can all say it!

 

There is nothing like a Grateful Dead concert.
