Re: Ginger Baker RIP-possibly the greatest drummer ever?

I've got a Rush track in my car, and it's great, a nice long song, good melody, but then there's a drum solo in the middle and it just goes on that little bit too long, and I have a genuine sense of relief when the rest of them come back from their fag break and kick back in. Sounds like the live v...

Re: Ginger Baker RIP-possibly the greatest drummer ever?

Incredibly overacted? Seriously? Yes, seriously! Moon was frustratingly inconsistent as a drummer, but when he was on form he was superb. I don't think he ever got a great sound on record until the Who's Next/Quadrophenia era, and feel his best playing was actually on late '60s/early '70s live reco...

Re: Ginger Baker RIP-possibly the greatest drummer ever?

Pretty much every progressive rock drummer of the early '70s - including Phil Collins - could outplay Ginger, whose playing I always found incredibly lumpen. Give me Mitch Mitchell's playing any day of the week. Ginger considered himself to be a jazz drummer, but he's third rate in that field at bes...

Re: Ginger Baker RIP-possibly the greatest drummer ever?

Incredibly overrated drummer and nowhere near as great as he thought he was, and a massive cunt as a person to boot.

Re: ultravox 1978

Please don't share download links to studio albums - Jim may be fine with bootlegs, but making studio albums available here to download is a definite no-no. As a result, I've removed the links and Jim has also been made aware.

Re: ultravox 1978

'Brilliant' may have been decent if whittled down to 8 or 9 tracks, but it's nowhere near their stuff 1976-1984.

I won't go near anything after Phantasmagoria.

Re: Rap Music

I don't think I'm being racist when I agree with Jon about the guy in UB40 who clearly has a broad Birmingham accent when he talks, and suddenly adopts a broad Jamaican one when he sings. And - shock horror - much as I enjoyed their other stuff, you can add the guy from Ruts DC into that as well - ...

Re: Name the last brilliant album you bought ?

I remember hearing that Girls Names album four years ago and thinking "ooh, well this is a pleasant take on late '70s post-punk - nothing spectacular, but highly enjoyable, if about 9 years late for the post-punk revival" ... then I checked out their other stuff and it was crap indie surf rock.
