Congratulations Sheena!

I'm so glad the forum can expand its wings to fit some more people under them!

I'm going to apologize in advance, not my format but glad others can find a place to call home....The CLOSEST I come to this is Queensryque (SP), and some metal stuff, that is about the limits of my listening capabilities! :)

Good for you, go get 'em and have fun!

Peter: personally i didn't even consider including metal here, and guys voted for their own metal forum
It's your garage, Sheena! :)
Life, as with music, often requires one to let go of the melody and listen to the rhythm

Congrats, Sheena!

One thing that fascinates me is how "not mainstream" has become mainstream so many times, as well as the many times that mainstream has "borrowed" from "non-mainstream" and evolved into something new.

Congrats, Sheena. I'll stick my head in the door occasionally, but as these genres are way outside my musical tastes I doubt that I'll have anything to contribute.

Maybe I should ask Peter if I can moderate a classical forum........ from Beethoven to Barber! :mrgreen:

Congrats Sheena,

Obviously the powers of persuasion are well within your grasp. :)

Like some others who posted before me. I will likely stop by for a read from time to time but I doubt that I will have a lot to contribute, so I will finish up by wishing you the best in this new endeavor.

Aitch, you are too modest :D ; you like The Church, and they were definitely outside the mainstream here in the U.S.

Thanks again to all of you, guys & gals.
Peter, i found it hard trying to sleep last night (it all happened so fast), and thinking too, and i can say that hard'n'heavy is a broad and unique genre, including a huge number of different styles, and so in my view it deserves a section of its own; besides, try to play side by side a song by the Ramones and a song by... well, modern bands like Apocalyptica and Nightwish come to mind — i'm awfully sorry metal guys, not that much into genre and coming up with the examples obvious for an average listener.
Gary, you're absolutely right. I cannot think of any music genre that existed inside its own walls and didn't exchange anything with the world. And as they say, opposition is the basis of development. :wink:

I can see it now, "what orchestra used a Rickenbacker violin in What's Opera, Doc?"

Paul: according to Talkbass, this poor instrument was in a R&R hall of fame in Cleveland — i don't know whether it's still there or not, and for obvious reasons cannot check it.

That's the smashed p-bass from the cover of London Calling. I read an article where he stated that he was doing that tour with 2 white p-basses and after he smashed it he thought 'Oh, no. That was the good one' and made sure he retrieved the pieces, but it was beyond repair.
Also, in the background of the photo, you can see a gigantic Security dude who was chasing a fan that got on the stage. Apparently Joe got betwen the guy and the female fan and excorted her off the stage himself. Must've been quite a show. :lol:

Awww, damn. I should've been a more careful reader. I did a google search on "Paul Simonon's Rickenbacker", and that led me to that page, and i thought they were talking Ric. :?
Well, i do like to hope that the Ric didn't end up his days broken in pieces and still is somewhere.

The BEST music either exemplifies or defies genre.

As I glance over my left shoulder toward my CD collection, it's clear that many of my favorite artists probably should be discussed in this forum. The boundaries can be quite blurry. Consider Australia's Ric-swingers The Church; they are as underground as underground get, but they flirted with chart success in '89 / '90.

Best of luck with the forum, Sheena. I moderate on another music board -it's a labor of love.

That's a great bit of news. I have two books on the Clash, and that info is not in either one! Thanks.

I like the finish on that Rick!
