Re: “The tale of Ethan Rose, his lathe and his DIY label, Funky Frankenstein

>>"He was telling me about this guy in New Zealand that does lathe cutting, and I had never heard about that before. I was like, 'Wow, that's crazy. You can just make lathes at your house or whatever? Just one-offs, as many as you want, of anything?' I got kinda obsessed with it.">>


Child, you're not "making lathes", the lathe makes the record. Wish I knew how to facepalm.

Re: “In 1989, Nashville's rock scene was on the verge of a breakthrough that never came

And any weekend night, getting into 308 underage to sit on the riser in the bag and have your mind blown. Thanks for the article

Re: “Nashville bassist Billy Cox, Jimi Hendrix’s longtime friend and collaborator, recalls a guitar god who still casts a long shadow

sorry, but billy knows damn well he was no Noel Redding...not sayong he can't play, but as for musical 'fit', Noel had a far better comprehension of Hendrix musically and artistically and it is why 'experience' got so big and embodies most of jimi's most passionate, visionary stuff...he floundered badly after that because he was trying to pacify the people calling him 'coon' and 'uncle tom' (mostly black people saying this)...jimi never could tell what buttered his bread and between that and his faux guilt trip for having blown up with white guys, he started complaining his commercial success was holding him back...this caused the rift with the his manager who could see between the drugs, his 'black guilt', and hangers on that jimi was talking professional suicide...but jimi got what he wanted...not to take away from band og gypsies, but everything after Experience was Jimi trying to answer accusations of being an uncle tom and a sober, bright, gifted mind saturated by drug abuse....

there's an old saying about famous bands....never trust the members who outlive the star they rode in on....if it weren't for Jimi, you wouldn't know Billy...Noel was well established prior to the Experience as was the superhuman Mitch....peace don't live in lies...

Re: “Jay Farrar and his Son Volt revisit their roots on Honky Tonk

"Uncle Tupelo are one of the only country bands in history that don't stand as an embarrassment to the genre..."

Holy hyperbole! Did you mean to say *recent* history? If not, then you are completely dismissing the long, rich music history of the country music genre. Even so, there's no need to dismiss the broad array of quality independent country music artists working today, including in Nashville. How many of those artists have you actually listened to?

I got here in '93 and discovered Johnny Hiland in the Honkey-Tonks, that's all I needed to find out, he's the man, all around!

What about Intruder, and literally half of Every Mother's Nightmare was from Nashville, so they did play there a lot

I guess metal doesn't make the grade. What about Intruder?

My favorite mid to late 1980's Nashville band was Walk The West, great article.

Come listen to some music from this era when Eleven 59 and Riff Rath play the High Watt this Saturday! Neither band has played a show since the early 90's. If you were around back then, don't miss this show!

Jet Black Factory was also part of this same lineage

Re: “Twenty-five years later, the Class of 1989 still looms large

Alan Jackson's 'A Little 'Bout Livin' (and a Lot 'Bout Love) and Mary Chapin Carpenter's 'Come On Come On' are true polar opposite listening/reacting experiences. One makes me want to jump around and kick up my heels with delirious boot-scootin' abandon while the other one calms me down to sit completely still and think about love, longing, regret, and (in)decision-making.

Joy AND pain. How basic human can one get?

Great piece! And it's great even though it didn't mention Clockhammer, Jet Black Factory, the Shakers, or the Grinning Plowman!

Don't forget about The Cannery! That is also back when 103 KDF was a rock station and they hosted the "Days of 103" at the Cannery to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. Not sure if they made it....

Re: “Why George Strait's farewell tour is the closest thing to a classic Western ending

Yeah, his song choices is what does it, I quit playing when my dad died. I remember scratching line by line from my play list because a female told me I was the most authentic strait impression she had ever seen. I didn't take it as a complement as it was meant. Trust me, no one wants their natural sound to be like strait. His songs came so easy and no one else could do them right. Imagine if you sounded like elvis. Lost my horses, my dad who taught me, almost lost my daghter. As a traditional singer I appreciate his life example even more than his songs. Real men don't brag, whine, cry in public and they secretly do without for the people they love. Thanks George for showing me my porch picking clan is still ok. Btw. Me and the boys played anywhere we wanted when I was active. Yup just standing there in my country suit and singing. He's not rare, just rare to be willing to quit instead of changing for anyone. Thank god he got that first hit aired or we would have missed it. I also played music while stationed at schofield then returned to the south. More impressed with the man than the music. Don't overlook it folks.
