Good music, good times

Went to the Aladdin on Saturday night to hear the Alan Parsons Live Project who were playing with the Las Vegas Philharmonic. Really awesome, especially lead guitarist Godfrey Townsend and drummer Steve Murphy, both of whom I know from my New York days, when they played in Queens bars as There and Back.

Sorry to bother you Mr. Subliminal sir, but can you tell me how in the heck I can leave a comment on Bob Lassiter's blog? I'm a nice enough guy, but evidently I'm way too stupid to figure out what is required for registration on his site.

Mr Subliminal said...

No bother at all. From the outset, he has disabled comments on his blog. I do, however, notice that they have been enabled for the last 2 posts, so hurry up before he changes his mind.

Actually, I retract my previous statement. Comments have been enabled, but without a user name and password it is impossible to post. As you were.

Wow...Alan Parsons. One of my all-time favorites and truly a show I'd enjoy seeing. Glad you enjoyed yourself.

I had the good fortune to see/hear APP in Tampa some years ago when they were touring with Yes (can you tell by my choice of music what an old fart I am?!) The tour had the sponsorship of DTS, who put a fancy-shmancy surround system in place on the main floor of the big room at Tampa Bay Performing Arts. Probably the single "coolest" sounding thing I ever heard. Ticket prices are high these days, but when I hear something THAT good (composition, musical performance, engineering, mixing, the whole shmear) I feel like I'm getting my money's worth. It was a good show. I didn't know what to expect from Parson's group effort in a live setting, but I came away from it ready to see them again...

'Course, I'd be happy just to hear Christmas musings from Bob Lassiter via podcast or something. I either have very good tastes, very bad tastes, or (I fear) both... :)
