Prince to me is~was this Gemini anomaly of the most broadly talented both Musician - Performer ...but someone I never really needed. (Bring brutally candid.) But to die @ some random # like 54... that we could no longer wonder what that Talent was going to be used for ...as Bowie most of the time sounded like the Future of Rawk...
Prince had interesting identity situations - but I wish he was less of an Identity Artist (I mean like Warhol not I.D. politics) on MTV - & more of an Artist...

Is that so, chresti? Donovan opened when I saw them...and Wakeman was back with the band, so maybe it was '77. I just remember driving late at night to Vegas from SoCal in the desert heat. Show was the next day.

But then if Yes did play in '76, too, with Donavon, that's amazing.

Yes/Grand Funk might not be as oil/water as, say, Ace/Yes in '75, the Relayer tour, or some stand-up comedian/Peter Gabriel '78-ish in San Diego, or Los Lobos/Kipper Kids/PiL at Olympic Auditorium.

I hear ya, Franco. I don't think Yes/Donovan is all that strange, but at the time it was surprising. Not too much later, after all, Steve Hillage did a great version of "Hurdy Gurdy Man."

A lot of derision of Gittar Blues Rawk. Peter Green Mac was just that in the late 1960s - but an exalted example. His Gittar - & Danny too - try the Live recordings. Green was also a wonderful Singer (not every Guitarist is) & Writer (same). They wrote Black Magic .Woman - not Santana. So - you gotta sit with that Gittar playing a minute yo get it...

I noticed my take on pop before I was aware of American culture (I grew up in Japan), and pop before I was born, makes it easy for me tp disassociate the music from the contemporous pop culture and enjoy it on its own merits. Anything from the mid-90s forward, I have a hard time liking most pop music w/ a few notable exceptions.

I resist Blues and Gospel only because I fear being pulled into their respective riptides. I could thrive musically on an all-Bach diet. Same goes for Blues and Gospel, I fear, so I avoid them, except when I don't.

& to me the Lady era Mac was the cultural opposition - forcefed Yacht Rawk & that was what Punk was for. I know perfectly well intellectually what merit it has - but it's a challenge otherwise. Courses for Horses as George Martin said...

By the way, I learned only today that Metallica's very first live show was at a venue where one of my bands played. A joint near Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park/Anaheim (in Orange County). Given the choice of seeing the two bands, I'd have opted for Metallica.
