I was at The Last Waltz- what an amazing experience. I was only 20 at the time and only later really appreciated how much music history and legacy I was witnessing. 

You want to see an interesting movie- it's on Prime- "Echo in the Canyon" with interviews, footage and the history of the music coming from the Laurel Canyon area of Los Angeles in the mid 60's. (Byrds, Jackson Browne, Stephen Stills, Buffalo Springfield, David Crosby, Graham Nash... they're all in it).

Neil Young had a "band" called The Ducks for a very short time, I think around 76 or 77 and they played a few gigs in some of the Santa Cruz bars. The Back Room, I think, was one of them. I was in a Navy school for a couple months at Mare Island and a guy in the class was from there, so we'd drive down on the weekends.  

Sounds like you've seen some great artists.  Cant lie, I'm pretty jealous.

 

Ill check out the film.

Thanks.

Seeing live performances has been in my blood for 50+ years. The last 10 months in this COVID world has been the worst- I can't remember the last time I went this long without seeing a show.

Johnny Craviotto. Have a couple singer/songwriter friends in Nashville said he makes custom drum kits there. Very cool.

You like their newest album?  I can’t get into it personally. 

I wanted to give it another spin before I responded but in a word

Hell yeah!

TLDR for what follows: Im super happy with the evolution of Akerfeldt's music

 

In fairness though Im a dyed in the wool prog soul. 

I mean the first albums I remember putting on were dads copies of Moody Blues A Question of Balance and ELP's Brain Salad Surgery. There were others of course Jimi, Steppenwolf, and oddly enough Jesus Christ Superstar but for this response the prog stuff is most important.

In my teen year when I needed to put my own mark on my taste it was Fates Warning, Queensryche, Spock's Beard, and Kings X.

 

I discovered Opeth when Blackwater Park was their new release and fell in love with the combination of the complex musical structures and Mikael's growl.  It was some of the first Death Metal I could really embrace (It was a gateway drug into a ton of bands I had previously ignored Lamb of God? Fuck yes!!) and I was an immediate convert. 

Damnation blew me away and when Ghost Reveries dropped I was a full on fan boy.  I was starting to be aware of the even year curse for their albums but on the whole I was digging the fug out of their catalogue. An then the even years are down years seemed to beak with Watershed.  There are some hella strong tracks on that disc.

I get the folks that are unhappy with the fact that the Deliverance days are further in the rear view mirror and In Cauda Venenum is more of whats to come. 

But as a dude that loves prog rock/metal this album is pretty bad ass.

I hate admitting this, but the new MGK album is really, really good. 

There's a severe lack of pop punk/punk rock in today's music scene. He got Travis barker to produce the album and it shows. 

It's good guys. I hate that I like it, but I can't stop listening to it. He's way better in this genre than he ever was as a rapper.
