Bowie's last album is inextricably of its time. It's nothing like his seventies stuff, and it never tries to be. McCartney's been resting on his laurels since about 1976.
On the topic of Scoot:
I was listening to an album called Blondel by Amazing Blondel. It's boring 70's proggy Renaissance fair crap, that Steve Winwood inexplicably plays bass on (I can only imagine he owed someone a favor.) Why I mention it, however, is that while the music is ably performed but utterly vapid, the singer's voice has more than a passing resemblance to our favorite rocker. Maybe he should put down the 'letric guitar and pick up a lute? He could be medieval times last hope.
Ask any musician/band about STeVE. Many of them would answer: Who the hell are them?
Scoot has started a thread, virtually identical to his last one. Noticed that he had zero interaction with that one, so why would he be bothering to start another and invite suggestions?
It's all looking predictatable. Scoots mentions Nirvana and how happy he was back in 1993, how he misses those times. For someone who professes music to be his life, he doesn't seem to like a very wide range of artists. I've counted about six that he talks about repeatedly (aside from 'Indie People'). I probably don't need to mention them.
First two suggestions that come up: Steven bloody Wilson and Gregg Allman (from Michael). Who'd have thought? If SHF could be encapsulated by one album it wouldn't be a Beatard's favourite, it would be Deja fucking Vu.
Walter Trout's "We're All in This Together," from the fall of 2017.
Jesus fucking Christ.
Says Holy Diver:
I'm not sure. I remember certain times better. When Loverboy - Get Lucky came out in '81 I left the skating rink early one Saturday afternoon to go to the mall and buy the vinyl. I was very excited. In fact I told people as I walked out the door. It's still a great album.
I want to know what an ageing unreconstructed metal head looks like. Has anyone seen a photo of Holy Diver?
P.s. Just read that the model they used for the leather ass was a 13 year old girl, lol. Oh god there's more: No-one could remember whose arm was draped across it.
