  1. Woodstock was certainly a massively impressive line up. Some of my faves....the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Hendrix, Grateful Dead, early Santana, The Who....all played awesome sets. Can't wait to watch the BBC show. Also recorded stuff on Sky Arts as well. I remember the big celebrations of 25 years of the festival, back in 1994. 25 years back from then for me was waaay back (I was 20 in '94). So to have even that 25 years ago now, is a very scary thought! I didn't live through it, but the festival line ups of that era were mind blowing. The IoW 1970....Hendrix, Miles Davis, The Who....wowzers!
  2. Holy thread revival, Batman! Funnily enough, JR is a name I only recently came across, as he plays on the second Automatic Man album. It came up when I was doing some research on his modified Rickenbacker. More info here - http://bassoutpost.com/index.php?topic=10566.msg179861#new
  3. Great bass tone on it as well - divides opinion - but I love it! 😀
  4. I've probably got prog wear, for whatever style I'm playing! 🤣
  5. Doesn't sound that cheap, TBH, especially at this moment in time. Are the older Italian, or newer Indonesian ones? Makes no odds in my experience, but may help you determine the age a little better.
  6. One band that always really grates on me. Guess we all have them - Stipe's vocals for me, have always been a huge switch-off.
  7. I'm not sure which career point is lower.....'Dog Years', or 'I Think I'm Going Bald'! I agree, TFE is probably their weakest overall. I still like most of it, though!
  8. New thread idea.....your least favourite Rush album!🤣
  9. In my opinion? Yes. Last 24 hours I've listened to Hendrix, The Stooges, Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers.....can't think of anything this century that comes close. I'm a rock, soul, jazz fan. Today.....souless, sanitised....I think there was a turning point around the early 00's. And I'm in my early 40s.....so wasn't around for so much 'classic' stuff at the time. Last week I put on Miles Davis Live At The Filmore. 49 years young, and more of a challenge/immersive experience than is possible today. Sadly.
  10. That's not it - it's this one I read - https://www.worldofbooks.com/en-gb/books/barry-white/love-unlimited-insights-on-life-and-love/GOR003357455?keyword=&gclid=Cj0KCQjw-b7qBRDPARIsADVbUbXFyIvqlJA5ZEv0r_Y5US-XVUj0lQDBlKn-UFo7blykg3z5s-mKUYIaAvtSEALw_wcB
  11. I'm also in the 'all of them' camp. There's not a single one I don't like. Only gripe is the 00's production values. I too wish there was more 'space' in the Clockwork Angels sound - it's such a strong album. I'd probably have to plump for a live album - the longer, the better! 😀 Am I the only person who loved Ged's ' In Rio' tone?
  12. The Evo (not the 2) seems to be available in a few places for £349 at the mo.
  13. Thanks! 😀 How's it, a year on?
  14. Thread revival! Out of interest, are these made in the UK or overseas? I've been looking at these with interest, maybe changing from a Markbass.....
  15. I ran the 500 combo alongside a 1x15 cab for a while. Sounded really good, bags of room. Changed the car, so couldn't fit it in, so moved it on. Only reason.....it was a great combo, very useful on its own. I think the Rumbles are great (terrible name, though!). I've previously run a 1x15 as well, which I often gigged on its own, it was great. My practice amp is a Rumble 40, had it for a few years now. I don't own any others now, as I went back to separates (Markbass and Markbass...now Barefaced - thanks Rhys re the BF!).....but I'd recommend the Fenders greatly.....and I'm plugging in a Ricky as well. When I did stick a P in, it went to a different dimension!
