    $117 for the cheapest ticket? Thats why I gave up going to rock concerts a long time ago, they priced themselves too high. It seems like the Eagles started this with their "first farewell" tour, I can't remember what year. I used to camp out in ticket lines to get good seats in my teenage years. When sales went online and the promoters got most of the good seats, I gave up.

    I agree. The Eagles :censored2: me off with their commercialism of their music. How many people would pay over $100 for a concert ticket?
    I can, but will not!
    I went to alot of concerts in my youth and they seemed expensive. $117?? sorry. What's he, like almost 70 years old now???

    I saw Tom Jones in concert and I was in the front row.
    I was told that front row ticket holders must toss their tops at Tom Jones and shake it for him.

    Not quite retirement yet for Roger Waters. Hot off the british press in the last few hours, Nick Mason, PF's drummer reports PF reunion concert(s) very possible.

    If you love metal music or even if you don't but love music in general, the documentary Heavy Metal in Baghdad, about an Iraqi heavy metal music band and what they go through for their music is most amazing.

    Not much inside info on this band other than they are an American Death Metal band who write lyrically around a violent and bloody construct. Think the most bloody and violent gore movie and you'll have the idea. As for going to see them? Look at the lyric content and decide for yourself but it's just a gimmick and one that never worked for me. Let me know if you decide to go see them and what you think. Are they playing at the Orange Peel?

    I don't mind the death vox or death growls as it's a form of instrumentation not unlike the heavily dissorted guitar. First time I heard death growls, my reaction was much like your's but it was the Swedish Death/Black metal band Opeth who uses a progressive rock underpinning that got me to take the vocal concept with some serious consideration. Consider it almost in a type of point/counterpoint or a dark/light kinda thing.

    Michael Akerfelt, Opeth's vocalist uses a mix of clean and death vox and the band even did a purely clean vocals album called Damnation that really opened the door for them among the fans in the Progressive Rock world. Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree produced 3 of Opeth's albums including their breakout album in Blackwater Park. One song from Blackwater Park, titled Bleak has an almost Zepplenish feel to it like Kashmir in that it uses this Middle Eastern vibe or rift to it but in a head banging tempo. Vocals are a mix of death vox and clean.

    Here's a live version of Bleak.


    Now for contrast using clean vox and a very melodic song off Damnation called Windowpane.


    Windowpane was the song that got me to consider the band as a whole. Their latest album, now about 2 years old entitled Watershed was heavily influenced by Akerfelt listening to a lot of 1960's Zombies with Rod Argent as well as Frank Sinatra and his album The Drift. Think about a death metal album influenced by the Zombies and Sinatra. When you listen to Watershed you can hear those influences for sure and that's what I like about Opeth as they aren't the typical one dimensional metal band. Most death metal bands I tend to become bored with but Opeth's diverse catalog tends to really hold my interest.

    I may or may not go to see Cannibal Corpse. Im not a big fan of death metal in general (lot of exceptions of course). I like to be able to hear what is being said for the most part. But I know the band has been around a while and there is usually a reason for it.

    WK,,, not sure if you have heard of these guys but I am going to see them this coming Friday at the Peel. They are a local band and are very good IMO. Called Mindshapefist. Check out their myspace page.
