The "they were massive... and quite rightly so" thread

Recommended Posts

Stones. 
 

They were and still are massive. Still full of energy even now! Legends.

Queen should be put as post #1 in the "vastly overrated, they were F-ing awful" thread.

Dreadful band IMHO.

They touched brilliance with their album ‘ Sheer Heart Attack ‘ .

A Night at the Opera was a very good album as was ‘ Innuedo ‘.

Where I join you is in their commercial crap like ‘ I want to break free ‘ , ‘ Bicycle Races ‘ ‘ Radio Gaga ‘ ...

Seen them twice. First time they supported Mott the Hoople. Second time was in Adelaide when Night at the Opera was doing the rounds. Have to say I was very disappointed.

Stevie Wonder. Apart from crap like Happy Birthday, Ebony, I just called, he has stood the test of time.

Fantastic albums through the 70s 80s . Talking book, Songs in the key of life just a couple.

How the **** did I forget these?

Total class...

R . E . M .

Proud to say that I bought the debut the year it was released, and ended up buying their entire works.

What a legacy this lot left.

First weekend or second?  They played so long past the cutoff point on the first weekend, the council insisted it was more rigorously enforced the second.  IIRC the laser light show was the the first one in the UK at a festival, seeing that coming off of Jimmy Pages violin bow.....

As an aside, that was Fairport Convention's farewell gig, bit premature... I have seen them a few times since and their festival at Cropredy is worth going to. I doubt that will go ahead either this year.

Went both weekends, queued up at Virgin to get tickets for the first one, but also applied by post so got both weekends in!

Freddie Rachmaninoff. BTW This isn't some bloke who actually could play a bit of piano proper and so they went and used the bloke for this... NO this is the band's lead vocalist who put this track down. Phenomenal band.

This was actually a really good band before all the 80s stuff. No, they were actually and it is a fact.

The Knife (1970)  Mike Rutherford way before the mechanics and all that shit

What a bassist. And so OTIBers

I nominate Genesis

Just watching the Amy Winehouse documentary on C5, a reminder of what might have been, what a tragic, terrible waste of an amazing talent.  
 

Amy would very near the top of my ‘wish I’d seen live’ list.

I used to have a pen pal in the US: she sent me a tape of Reckoning before I had ever heard of them. Loved them ever since. Only got to see them once, in Atlanta. Brilliant band.

As an aside, I know the barrister who got Peter Buck off his air rage case.

Great stuff. Thanks for the memories there. They were amazing, and I still have fond memories of those early records (a real favourite of mine being Reconstruction of the fables)

Gonna start playing their stuff again soon
