I intentionally didn't include Bowie, Dylan or McCartney since they seemed too obvious and any of them probably would have easily won.

Well, there's a 10-choice max ... I listed Waters since he's doing full live Dark Side sets these days, which seems kinda interesting.

I've seen 4 of those 10 already. Choosing amongst the others was hard. It came down to Eno and Waits, figuring that would be a rare event, then I settled on Waits because I figured he'd put on a better show.

MrAmeche

I've seen 5 of the 10 - Byrne, Costello, Gabriel, Reed and Young ... all were good to great, but I'd definitely like to see either Waits, Eno or Patti at this point.

02-26-2007, 08:58 AM
That's a painful choice, between Eno, Peter Gabriel and Tom.
I'd go with master Waits.

I've not seen any of those dinosaurs.

I'd like to see at least 8 of them. Or, at least, there are 8 that I would have liked to've seen at some point in the past. Had I been aware of them/born.

don't bother with Dylan. i saw him 10 years ago and he couldn't even remember his lyrics then. he also hardly plays his guitar at all. Preserve his dignity in your own mind.

02-26-2007, 12:27 PM
Dylan's hit or miss. I've seen him 4 times. One was one of the best shows I've ever seen; one was pretty good; one was ok; and one was one of the worst shows I've ever seen.

I would like an entire day of Neil Young. He could play one and a half hour sets from every decade (60's to present) taking 30 min breaks in between sets. That is something I would pay a lot of money to see.

02-26-2007, 02:41 PM
I went with Young cause I figur I'd enjoy it the most. Others -- Eno, Waits, Smith -- are all performers I would like to have on my "I've seen them live" checklist, but most just because I feel like I should have seen them. I can't say I think I'd actually enjoy the performaces, though. I've seen Neil Young, and it was great.

I don't know how it works for Neil Young's voice, but my voice teacher in high school told me you shouldn't sing more than 1 hour a day because it's hard on your voice. You're just cruel, man.

your voice teacher in high school must not be familiar with the works of Wagner.

02-26-2007, 03:03 PM
I'm not either, so I'm not sure what you're saying. My retort could be that if those singers had to sing a long time for some musical piece, they probably didn't last long as singers.

I know how to pronounce Wagner. I've heard of him. I have probably heard music by him, but I have not sat down and listened to entire opera by him, so I wouldn't know how long his operas are. You are so pretentious, Tom.

ummmm, you're probably the most pretentious person on the coachella boards.

do you seriously have 1198 posts in less than 2 months? have you programmed your computer to post on your behalf 24 hours a day? do you have a life?

oh, and it's obvious you have no idea who the fuck wagner is, yet you can't seem to admit to it.

mountmccabe
02-27-2007, 06:26 AM
I love Wagner. Ooh, I hope I have Lohengrin on my mp3 player cause I think I wanna listen to that next. An act, at least.

Also Tom you do realize that operas involve large casts and non-continuous singing. So even for the longer ones like say Parsifal and even if you're singing a big part like Parsifal or Kundry you're not going to doing anything close like singing continuously for 4 hours.


Also, an hour of 60s Neil Young? That'd be pretty awesome. An hour of 70s Neil Young? I would die. Which would be fine because I wouldn't stick around for the 80s, 90s or 00s hours anyway. Mainly due to lack of familiarity.

On the dick dale comments, he tours quite often now I know …. He was here a couple of times in 06 I think and he is coming back to the Gothic (for us locals) on May 5th …. On the Neil comments …. It isn’t a festival as it were, but in Oct of each year, Neil has his Bridge Benefit Concert at shoreline in the bay area …. It is always two days and tons of good and special music … the two days do tend to be the same acts, but there are exceptions …. Where else could you see Eddie V sing with Neil … but the reason I bring it up, it is a benefit concert … the money goes to the Bridge School for all of the kids … I went for 8 years in a row, and each year I didn’t think it could top the last one …. Well the mud bath one was pretty fun, but usually the weather is great and good times had by all … and if you can’t make it, consider giving a wee bit to the school and good karma will come your way …. Cr*******

This was probably my favorite Bridge show I saw: The Who, Pearl Jam, Sheryl Crow, Green Day, Billy Corgan & James Iha, Tom Waits (Sat. only), Emmylou Harris (Sun. only), Lucinda Williams and Brian Wilson.

You are so pretentious, Tom.

Amy why are you trying to pick a fight with me? Don't pick a fight with me. ok?

besides pretentious means "making an unwarranted claim to importance or distinction." got that?

Edit: I think the word you were looking for is 'condescending'. That means, to talk down to.

Probably, he usually covers a decent amount of VU songs in his set.



Also, I've been listening to a lot of Brian Eno lately, he'd be pretty swell to see.
