I like everything from Allan Jackson to Snoop-Dog to Zeppelin. Honestly, there isn't any kind of music that i don't like something from the genre. I like some classical, too.

BUT my all time favorites are PEARL JAM and THE WHO.

the first thing i do when ever I buy a car (or my boat) is put a pearl jam stick man on it.

No music in my boat, at least not yet. Just not a good spot in the 82 to add the radio. We have many threads about that.
Although I have used the old boombox a time or two when we were out "rafting".

What I would like to do is find a portable speaker/amp system to use with my flash type MP3 player. Something I could store under the bow and pull out and set on dash, engine cover or whenever we wanted some music.

Does anybody know of such a product?

I can say that I am THROUGHLY dissapointed in these lists. Not one mention of one os the best bands today. Little Southern Rock, little brass, lots of drums.......who else?

Widespread Panic.

If you have not heard of them...grab a CD. Lots of great music, and enough energy to get even the most worn out person an extra set..

I used to go see WSP in the late 80s and up through about 98 or so. Great band, but I didn't enjoy their later albums as much. It was a shame about Mikey. When I moved to East Texas in 2001, I was pleasantly surprised to find a huge WSP following here. I don't listen to them as much as I used to, but you're right, great band.

nashvillematt
03-03-2005, 11:01 AM
Yeah...I do not do the same "following" that I did in college. But, sitting in a cove listening to a little Panic, drinking a Corona, watching all of the hot little hippies dance.....nothing better!

03-03-2005, 11:37 AM
Different band/similar scene, for me (saw many a phish show in my 20s).

You should check out Soulhat. They were coming up in Austin around the time WSP was starting to grow (around 91). They're pretty much done for, although Kevin McKinney is still playing quite a bit. Their drummer, Barry "Frosty" Smith (formerly of Ike and Tina and Parliment) was incredible (even in his 60s).

If you like horns, I highly recommend going to see Trey Anastasio's 12 piece band.

Professor
03-03-2005, 11:43 AM
Difficult to pick just a few and some great ones already mentioned. The easy part of the question is: CD player; IPod (which is still not full) and XM radio. Don’t know any that match early Floyd but a few more recent favs are Linkin Park, Staind, Molly, and after reading a few threads … a few specific ones that I strongly suggest are Nickelback’s “Good Times Gone,” Bowling for Soup’s “The Bit** Song” (GREAT VIDEO), and Puddle of Mudd’s “She Hates Me.”
Hey Mag???

I am jamming out to MOFRO right now. If you get a chance. Get their greatest hits CD...

I would like to claim to have the broadest range of music than anyone I know (about 2000 cds) but some of you guys are really close.

To me, music is anything that get's you going at that point in time. It could be heavy metal or just something as background noise.

Some of the my most played cd's are (just to name a few):

Disturbed :D
Motley Crue
Fleetwood Mac
Neil Young
Counting Crows
Dr Dre
Bad (but good!) 80s bands :eek:
Doors
PJ

We usually let the person who is skiing play whatever he/she wants. So this way, everyone gets to blast some tunes. Late in the summer it started turning into who could bring the worst music and p*ss off everyone else in the boat. It was funny for about a week or so but then I had to pull the plug on that deal, what a headache!

Gotta love the times when my wife or some of her girlfriends put on their barefoot suits (shaking their hips ) and Bootylicious comes on the CD player...ah, the warm days of summer... :D

Hey, you either like him or you don't. I think the guy's outstanding. Yeah, egotistical, but great on my ears, so I don't care. I don't have to live/work with him so it doesn't bother me how he is on a more personal level. I was at the ACL show, too. His setup highlighted exactly what you're talking about, but I loved it and will see him again when the opportunity is right. Kudos for him for touring with a sizeable horn section. Other than Prince, you don't see it as much as you should. Prince, there's another egoist. I must like that sort of stuff.

Haven't checked out Mofro. Have you heard of the Greyhounds? They're from my new hometown and are friends of ours. They're either pretty good friends and/or have toured with Mofro. Pretty fun act to see.

For shaking that thang ... among others, these come to mind

Maceo Parker
Tower of Power (bump city, back to oakland and East Bay Grease)
Al Green (live in Tokyo is pretty great)
Brand New Heavies Experience Vol. 1)
The Meters

By the way, if anyone likes the Talking Heads, go see David Byrne if you get the chance. We caught him in 03 at a small club in Dallas. 6 piece string section and that guy's voice hasn't lost a bit. Or just rent "Stop Making Sense." Best concert movie ever.

We did the best cars how about the best bands
touchy subject


Yes its a touchy subject. OK, if you think I am snobby about skiboats, you aint seen nothin yet! :uglyhamme ;) Music is my passion!!!! Alright, I will try to contain my attitude and be good. Here's my list, laugh if you want at the 80's bands in it, but they rock.

(in no particular order)

Van Halen (the reunion tour was cool even though EVH is a jerk, but he did write some great songs, and revolutionize rock guitar with playing technique and many technical innovations on the instrament itself and of course, Sammy just RULES!!!!)
Journey (if you close your eyes, you wont know its not really Steve Perry....simply bonechilling)
Kansas (their live show is unbelievable, unmatched musicianship, Best live show for true talent with no flashiness)
Styx (the REAL styx with DDY, not the current FAKE Styx with 3 stand ins and a washed up JY and TS)
Dennis DeYoung (best singer in the world, hands down with a great new band)
Pat Benetar ( she still has an amazing voice, and looks great 25 years later!)
Iron Maiden (amazing precision, with all 3 guitarists on tour, it sounds JUST like the studio, they are simply amazing musicians despite the cheesey motif, the song structure and dynamics are excellent)
Judas Priest (Halford is the best metal voice there is, and a classic guitar duo in Tipton and Downing)
Def Leppard (classic vocal harmonies and melodic hooks, they are a pop rock machine that wont quit, great sound. Phil is a great guitarist, and backup singer but very underrated)
and just for the record George Lynch sits on the top of the heap for guitarists. as cheesey as Dokken was, without him it would have never took off. He was the ultimate rock guitarist. He had a style that was so out of this world. He actually became bigger than Dokken. A case where one guy stole the thunder from the rest of the band. An amazing and innovative guitarist, very modest and not a ego maniac in public like most rock stars. His strength is he constantly learned and progessed as a guitarist and never rested on his past achievements.

There are many other bands I like, far too many to list, but these are the best on my list.


A side note: they dont make the BEST band list, but although they lack catchy melodies, if you want to get your doors blown off by amazing virtuosity check out a live DVD by Dream Theater it will leave you in awe, but you cant really whistle even one of their tunes. they are just "musical gymnists" that are technical masters of their instraments. its just devoid of any musical content. i.e. you could never dance to it, not by a long shot.....


OK, I got my flame retardant suit on now, go ahead and burn me!!! :uglyhamme

Well, since our normal ski days are also game days, we usually have the ballgame on the radio...

And, right now all I have is a Clarion tape deck in the boat, but I dumped my home tape deck years back when CD burners became available, so I don't have any tapes 8p

Guess I'll have to upgrade to CD, or at least take my old CD walkman and plug it into the tape deck...

Once that happens...I think the list will look something like this:

Van Halen
Styx
Rick Springfield
The Offspring
STP
Blindside
Guano Apes
Pearl Jam
Alina
Led Zeppelin
