Well, here's some synchronicity:



“Remember when you were young… You shone like the sun.” Four thousand light years away in the constellation of Serpens, a millisecond pulsar binary is pounding out its heartbeat. Meanwhile an international research team of scientists from Australia, Germany, Italy, the UK and the USA, including Prof. Michael Kramer from Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, German are listening in. Utilizing the 64-m radio telescope in Parkes, Australia, the team made a rather amazing discovery. The companion star could very well be an ultra-low mass carbon white dwarf… one that’s transformed itself into a planet made of pure diamond.

I like to separately consider guitar players in terms of their technical prowess and the feeling/impact of their playing. Technical prowess is a more straight-forward thing to compare, but the feeling/impact is a very subjective thing.

For me, Gilmour is tops for the feeling/impact of playing, with Mark Knopfler a close second. Santa and Clapton are up there close, and are the best in their respective sub-genres (of course from the perspective of my own preferences). Derek Trucks is needs to fit in there somewhere very high, sometimes #1 or #2 if I'm in the right mood.

Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Yngwie Malmsteen, and most of the Guitar Player Magazine coverboys have amazingly honed technical skills but their method of musical expression leaves me cold and unsatisfied. I can intellectually appreciate how difficult something is to play, but that is about the extent of the value for me if the feeling/impact is not there.

[quote]Actually Sleeper, just listened to Fat Old Sun...pretty sweet. I'd probably enjoy older Floyd, I really never got into pre-Dark Side of the Moon Floyd. I just like to ruffle some of you classic rock focker's feathers from time to time.

Iand the Black Keys, channeling some Led Zep getting their THICKFREAKNESS ON:

Rock on Sleeper!



That's what I figured, Dick

I'm a big black keys fan, too!

"Astronomy Domine" signaled liftoff.

"Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict" took it to a whole new level

The Pink Floyd, incidentally, invented the 'Ambient Music' genre; for those who don't already know that....

WTF?? Not sure I agree with that assessment.


Gilmore has excellent chops, obviously. And Amazing soul to go along with it all.

But there are so many excellent musicians, to say one is the best, it's like saying who is the best climber. No competition, or person, is going to be able to make that decision.

Hendrix, making his guitar talk on Hey Baby and various other cuts. His ability to hit the notes, and to pause in the right spots, yeah, he understood that. I have a track of his rhythm on "Have You Ever Been to Electric Ladyland". If you didn't know what cut that was from, you'd have a hard time figuring it out! Too bad he only made 3 1/2 albums in a little over 4 years...

Doh, how could I leave out Hendrix in my quick summary... and Stevie Ray Vaughn (Riviera Paradise!). Just reinforcing k-man's assessment that it's too hard to put labels on who's the "best." But it's fun to try. Signing off for the night, going to pump some plastic at Berkeley Ironworks.

I saw PF twice, once in 1970 at the Santa Monica Civic. This was right after they had released Meddle. The venue only held 5K people, so the atmosphere was pretty intimate. The next time was in 72 at the Hollywood Bowl where they performed Dark Side of the Moon for the first time iirc. Both times were pretty surreal, not to mention highly "electric"

The guitar solo(2nd one, I think) in
Comfortably Numb is cinsistently at the top
of the "Best Guitar Solos of All Time" lists.
Usually battling Stairway for #1.

I'm a big Animals fan.

Saw that tour in 88-89. (Edit: 87? When was that?)
So rad!
