I tried to put music on but that's almost worse than the tv. I play the drums so there are plenty of other times I listen to music. Sometimes I'm listening to music to learn how to play a tune. Almost always while in the car, although I often put NPR or the news on in the car as well. My favorite genres are jazz, fusion, funk, rock. My greatest musical influence? Frank Zappa.

I saw them at the Roxy back in the 70s, not sure if it was that performance. I remember Ruth Underwood and George Duke but nobody else.
I saw the Mothers at Pauly Pavillion when they did the "Just Another Band from LA" concert with Flo and Eddy. Amazing concert, 3+hours non stop. They did Mudshark, Billy the Mountain, Lonesome Cowboy Bert and finished with Happy Together.

On the trainer: whatever the soundtrack of that particular Sufferfest workout is featuring.
On the road: The sounds of nature and the beautiful sounds of a well-tuned bicycle. Sometimes, the music that plays in my head. Iím a musician. No earbuds on the road for me.

My son likes Pink Floyd from Dark Side of the Moon on out.

I prefer Umma Gumma and everything before Dark Side and dislike the later stuff.

Generation gap, I guess except he wasn't born until 1995.

The Fisher in the middle is a pre-amp driving the top right in the cage.
It sounds good is an understatement.
Unfortunately it caught on fire, but I expect it to be running when I get back from my trip in a week or so.
Any SoCal person should hear this on a few different speaker combos.

Zappa was a huge influence on me. I have first pressings of Freak Out and Absolutely Free. The guys at the record shop asked me (about 12 years old) if I knew what I was buying. The real answer is "no", but I knew some older folks that clued me in and knew that I liked music. I loved it.

And check out Mike Keneally (sp?).

Had a later day at work on Monday and found myself in the lab for a bit, so I played Sgt. Peppers and Magical Mystery Tour back to back on high volume while tending to something. I always preferred the psychedelic Beatles albums. Revolver comes in a close third.

I have a bunch of different playlists with a wide variety of music and just pick one for that ride. Lots of Nahko, Michael Franti, Damian/Stephen Marley, Samini, Dirty Heads, Satsang, Trevor Hall.... and on and on.

All positive, uplifting stuff so I can share a peace sign, or shaka when I hear the horn, get buzzed or flipped off.

Heard some Francois Couperin streaming KUSC this morning, cute little piece called "Sister Monique", cute little piece. It caught my ear and distracted me while working from home so naturally I had to post .

Turns out he's French and from the Baroque era. I will be looking into him more.

Yeah, light and pleasant. I enjoy all the little trills written into the melody.

I was surfing youtube and found this video of Sara Brightman and Antonio Bandaros performing a song from Phantom of the Opera. I did not know that Banderos was that good of a singer. I always thought of him as Zorro or western outlaw shooting things up. Having said that, IMO, he is not in Saraís league but hey, he sounded great and looked great.

We saw Sara live in Phantom of the Opera and Aspects of Love. She is in a league of her own and I total get why Andrew Lloyd Weber fell in love with her.

In other music news, we watched Hamilton on Disney. It was excellent but quite a change from an Andrew Lloyd Weber musical. The digital version was very good but I am sure the live version on Broadway would make a lasting impression such as Phantom and Aspects of Love. Highly recommended to watch on Disney streaming.

Normally I'm a Dead Head, but right now listening to a Moon Duo and Wooden Shjips playlist.
If you're a stoner, that likes world beat music, you will totally appreciate this.
