Oooooo Paul Butterfield band excellent choice I’d forgotten thanks for reminder. I’m like Bo I think I dislike most bands of past until I rediscover them thinking “Dang they were better than I remember LOL
Richrath wrote some fantastic guitar parts and doesnt get nearly the credit/respect I feel he deserves. Honestly the whole band for that matter.Love the You get what you play for Album.
Gary Richrath was an exceptional guitar player. Golden Country holds true...ESPECIALLY today.
I presume you also mean to exclude fad stuff from childhood/preteen years that folks typically outgrow- i.e. if you were 11 in 1990 and loved New Kids On The Block for a year, until the guy/girl you liked or older sibling home from college ridiculed you.What artist/band did you worship, but no longer listen too?
Worship might be a tad strong, but you get my drift... loved and acquired all their music, followed them, went to their concerts, got excited when their songs got played.
Makes alot of sense good infoI think I’ve done this with every artist I’ve ever listened to. Things come in waves and I either discover something new, or i re-visit things. This week I bought four Pink Floyd albums which is new to me, but also re-visited Stevie Wonder and Peter Frampton. Next week I plan to get in to the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. I internalize it then move on.
Yup...YOU brought up Gary in the underrated guitarist thread. He was one of those that had "his" sound.Richrath wrote some fantastic guitar parts and doesnt get nearly the credit/respect I feel he deserves. Honestly the whole band for that matter.
Nobody talks on the phone like Gary does.
There are many, but Metallica is a big one for me.
Lars was an early influence on me in my mid to late teens and one of the bands I was in (late '89 - '91) was a (somewhat) tribute band and our set list could include every song they had done up until that point. I say "somewhat" because we didn't deliberately dress like them nor did I have an identical kit to Lars but I did have a white kit (still do) and had black reso's and our bass player was also our vocalist and played an explorer bass, so there were some similarities. Once the black album came out and they revealed themselves as complete sellouts, I lost ALL respect for them. When I returned from the tour I was on with another band, and this band had decided to include "Enter Sandman" and "Wherever I may roam" into the setlist, I knew I needed to move on.
Every great once in awhile I'll listen to the pre-black stuff for nostalgic sake, but having played it so many times I'm just plain tired of it....and them.
