    Well, I try my best
    To be just like I am,
    But everybody wants you
    To be just like them.
    They sing while you slave and I just get bored.
    I ain't gonna work on Maggie's farm no more.

    Return with us now to those thrilling days of yesteryear, when from out of the past come the thundering hoofbeats of the great 1965 Mustang! The Lone Stranger rides again!

    Or something like that.
    This morning I grabbed the following shirt to wear. Turns out it was meant to be.

    There were a lot of great albums that came out in 1986. "Master of Puppets." "Peace Sells...But who's buying?" "Somewhere in Time." "Reign in Blood"

    Look at the MASSIVE quality of the releases
    Fastway - Trick or Treat
    Fates Warning - Awaken the Guardian
    Flotsam and Jetsam - Doomsday for the Deceiver
    Iron Maiden - Somewhere in Time
    Megadeth - Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?
    Metallica - Master of Puppets
    Nuclear Assault - Game Over
    Ozzy Osbourne - The Ultimate Sin
    Slayer - Reign in Blood
    W.A.S.P. - Inside the Electric Circus

    Yes, a great year, a classic year, a wonderful year. But...

    The #1 song that year was "Christmas Don't Be Late" by the Chipmunks. Really! And by a huge margin.

    Other than the hit, "The Happy Organ," a personal favorite for SO many reasons, it wasn't a great year for what we call Rock And Roll.

    I would like to credit Ben Hur for getting me into both film scoring music and Roman history as a little kid. I actually bought the soundtrack recording (complete with a book about the making of the movie) and listened to it over and over. Big fan of Miklos Rosza here. I still think that the march of the Roman bad guy, Messala. into Jerusalem's scene music was sublime, both martial and cool at the same time, and I'm pretty sure I could still play it on keys. I actually bugged my parents to get me kids' books on Roman history, and wound up reading The Iliad and The Odyssey in a kid's version later that year. Yeah, Greek, but the Romans were into it, so I was, too.

    I read the grown-up translation when I was about 12, and then took 4 years of Latin in high school and 4 in college. I blame that movie.

    My grandfather had a silver 1959 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham with the fins that he actually bought off the floor of the Auto Show. Unfortunately, within days of getting it my baby brother had a little accident and peed on the seat, and my poor grandfather was upset, because I guess the dealer couldn't quite get the stain out, so he sold the car within a week, and bought a different one! Yeah, he was that guy. Didn't occur to him to simply have them replace the seat. He's not around to ask what he was thinking. At the time, it seemed perfectly logical to me.

    And Motown - Hey, I'm from Detroit. Love Motown. And the Supremes went to my high school. So there's that.

    But 1965 was still better.

    But a '65 Strat is still a pretty good thing to own, right?

    Unfortunately, however, none of the albums you listed was among them...

    I mean, 80s metal? OK, I guess, if you're stuck in a middle school time warp (kidding, sorta ).

    Seriously, "What You Need" by INXS, a classic. "Higher Love," Winwood. Good stuff. Bruce Hornsby's first hit. Elegant music for a more civilized age.

    How cool? I know of two that friends own.

    Actually, I'd rather play the PRS, but that's just me.

    So Serg, I want to get this straight. You come from a long line of diaphragm bootleggers? That's neat!

    Back to practice for me!
    Sounds perfect to my ears. Dig Brian Jones' Firebird V.
    Remember anyone in that audience could be your parents or grandparents.
    A concert, a club, a little booze, a little weed, 60's Rock 'n Roll playin', nine months later ... Welcome Baby!!
    That never changes and spans all generations.
    Just sayin'.

    Trying to relive another generation's memories is impossible.
