I swear I thought I saw ZZ Top announce a tour just recently. Any word on how he died?

Haven’t heard or seen the cause of death at this point.

He had hip replacement surgery and then died in his sleep. Cause of death has yet to be determined. Loved the old blues stuff !

Zeppelin IV today. I love Black Dog. Plants vocals are just unreal. Pretty sure John Paul Jones wrote that one.

The new album from Withered is a fantastic slice of death metal.

A GREAT old tune, of which my wife just reminded me, followed by the Jazz Masterpiece from which much of it was stolen (Isn’t YouTube great?!? - who could have all of this in their own collection?)

The first tune, “Diamond Girl”, featured Louis Shelton (on electric guitar), who virtually no on has ever heard of, but who did a lot of spectacular studio guitar work on a lot of great old tunes, and who produced even more very successful music from that era.

The second, well, if I was on a desert island for the rest of my life and could take only two albums, this would be the second.

Edit: Oh, and, how many here besides me are old enough to remember “The Midnight Special”?

It’s great to watch those old MS shows. I tried to find the excerpt from a Steely Dan documentary where Doald Fagen - in his requisite droll manner - upon responding to his favorite albums says “I just listen to Kind of Blue” until the grooves wear out and then go out and buy another."

Guessing mine will look a little different than pretty much everyone else’s here. :slight_smile:

  1. Skinny Puppy - “Too Dark Park”
  2. Agalloch - “Marrow of the Spirit”
  3. Sigh - “Scenes from Hell”
  4. Wilderun - “Sleep at the Edge of the Earth”
  5. Edge of Sanity - “Crimson”
  6. Opeth - “Ghost Reveries”
  7. Turisas - “The Varangian Way”
  8. David Bowie - “Ziggy Stardust”
  9. Type O Negative - “October Rust”
  10. Behemoth - “The Satanist”

With a half dozen other albums that are interchangeable, depending on my mood.

I’d have to put some thought into my top 10, nobody’s ever asked me for more than my top 3, but there are a bunch of things on the three previous lists that would be candidates, particularly John Coltrane “Giant Steps”, and Beatles “Revolver”

My number 3 would be Allman Brothers, “Live at the Fillmore East”
