Re: The Kinks Thread

KLL76 - yes agree that VGPS was a great album. Much overlooked originally because it was backward-looking, in the brave new world of 1968.

Yet it was only highlighting the things that were changing.

Re: Queen Thread

Live Aid changed so many things, and not just awareness of famine.

But that's another story.

Canned Heat - that vocal for 'On The Road Again' wouldn't pass the initial X-Factor auditions now.... :lol:

Re: Official blur forum to shut down

I was another who tried (more than once) to join the old forum (around 2010-11) but was never accepted.

When I went back recently to try again, I found it was closing & was this forum was brought to my attention. :)

Re: Derek and the Dominos Thread

Eric Clapton changed bands like other stars changed their cravats in that period :lol: Been a fan of 'Layla' for years but haven't got the album. Maybe I should get round to it, but.... I like The Yardbirds & Cream (have compilations for both). I have the Blind Faith album, very good. I like Stevie ...

Re: Overrated Music

Yes to the above.

Though to be fair, Queen had a good run up to 85, Oasis had a good run mid 90s.

Libertines were neither here nor there, like as you say, 90% of modern pop music is.

Re: Queen Thread

Pre-85 work was better, although 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was too overblown for me.

Re: Your Musical History (From Earliest Memories - Present)

Yes, I concur with a lot of what you say, KLL76.

Music did turn for the worse in the late 80s. Picked up a bit during the 90s, Blur helped (just a bit :D )

Re: Introduce Yourself (Hello to all the new users)

Hi all, I'm Mallard No. 22 and I've just steamed in, with Blur I'm sure I'm on the right tracks.... ;) Wasn't on the old forum but....
