Speaking of Cover Bands... How about the one at the RNC?

Without delving into politics...

 

Just on a musical note. They have a cover band at the Republican National Convention. They opened with "Happy Together", and now are playing "Hip Hug Her"!

 

When do we get the Headliners? Oops... They are the Headliners.

I thought you were talking about Skynyrd. No offense intended I think Peter Pisarczyk is great and they have done some new material in recent years.

Its a quintet. The keyboard player is using a real B3 (Kudos for that!). The singer looks unsure of what is coming next. Hard to turn down that gig.

 

When does Ted Nugent go on?

I don't know if Uncle Ted will be allowed a mic but I thought I read on FB that Skynrd and Kid Rock were playing the RNC.

From a protesting Never Trump delegate during chaos on the floor: "The jazz band is going a great job! A nice smooth riff..."

 

What they need is some yacht rock.

Excellent - I like this game. Both great selections ... I'll nominate for the CEB-Best title:

 

Strangers In The Night - probably too dark a horse for this title, unlikely to win. its the best live hard rock album I know with extensive Wurly throughout.

 

Kiss Alive - one of the early live hard rock albums - its inexplicable success spurred music exec's impulse to spit out hundreds of otherwise unneeded "live" records for a decade to follow till that craze finally died out. You wanted the Best, You Got The Best ...

 

Frampton Comes Alive - a single album propelled an unknown brit rocker to the peak of the world rock charts and #1 touring rock act for 2 years. The album faded and so did his career.

 

Deep Purple - Made in Japan. Perhaps the best live album I know. alas, it was an incremental addition to their already legendary and voluminous musical contributions to hard rock, and for that reason, cannot garner my vote. Unlike our other contestants, I'm fine listening to their prior studio versions.

 

no, after careful deliberation I must cast my vote for the live album that came from nowhere to take the planet by storm in the latter 70s and lift a then-unknown rock band primarily (and oddly) appreciated in Japan to universal worldwide acclaim, recognition, fame and ... induction to RRHOF! I give you ...

 

... Cheap Trick Live @ Budokan!

 

yes, fun game.

The baiting I do is purely for entertainment value. Please feel free to ignore it.

Think they are making more than $500?

Technically, yes... besides the $500 payout, each band member gets a free case of Trump Steaks.

yep...

 

to try and steer away from that, I thought the keys player kicked butt last night. He was channeling some good grooves and riffs on the EWF tunes they played. i think Larry Dunn would have approved the guy's take on the stuff.

They are playing some of the same songs from the 2008 DNC.

They've also received numerous cease and desist demands from Sony and Queen to stop using "We are the Champions" without permission

The RNC is claimng that all the music being played is actually composed by them. "It's just a series of common musical notes..."

I am proud that I have tried to be non-political with my comments. They are certainly not meant to be. But if you take them as being so, then I apologize.

 

One thing I think that this country needs more than anything else is a little less hate and a lot more humor, from both sides.

To get back on track... Where are the headliners? There must be someone famous out there willing to play for this crowd!

Did it really? For some strange reason, I didn't notice... until you said that.

 

Unless you mean, like, actually mentioning that this is a convention for the Republican Party (a political organization)... and posting a picture of the actual nominee for the party... is "being political".

 

:pop:
