Those things in a list that belong here.

The best snare drums. Who doesn't need a metal Ludwig?

Ursa Major Sound is a mastering facility. They're inexpensive.
I am completely baffled at what Cash Music does.
I'm trying to list all the Jethro Tull concerts I've been to.

  • 1980 with my brother David. Whitesnake opened. In support of the "A" album. Madison Square Garden. My first rock concert actually.

  • 1982 with my brother David. Nassau Coleseum.

  • Crest of the Knave tour. This was one of the best concerts I'd ever been to. I'm guessing it was this show:
22/11/87Meadowlands ArenaEast Rutherford, NJ. USA
Songs From The Wood, Thick As A Brick/Steel Monkey, Farm On The Freeway/Heavy Horses, Living In The Past/Serenade To A Cuckoo, Budapest, Hunting Girl, The Waking Edge (intro)/'Classical' Instrumental/Keyboard Solo/Drum Solo, Wond'ring Aloud, Skating Away..., Jump Start, Too Old To Rock'N'Roll..., Aqualung, Locomotive Breath/Thick As A Brick (reprise), Wind Up
I do specifically remember them opening with Songs from the Wood.

  • Garden State Arts Center. Procol Harem opened. They did not play Aqualung.

  • Beacon Theatre with brother-in-law David Lewis.  
I finally got around to watching Amanda Palmer's The Art of Asking TED talk. I don't think she really understands the backlash of the broo-ha-ha over the "free musicians" thing. Or, she was using a strawman to defend her position.
Me? I have my finger on the pulse of the zeitgeist. I'm like a cultural EKG machine.
