    Wondering how they made it to the finals is all, HB. Suddenly they look like a high school team.

    +1 on Tool....and I think White Zombie would fall in to the same timing thing.....their earliest stuff was pure $hit. La Sexorcisto and Astro-Creep 2000 were my favorite workout albums for years. Tool makes for great workout music, too.

    The lyrics in many of Tool's tunes are pretty wild...Hooker with a Penis is one of my faves....great story...and for those not aware, the title is a metaphor for the individual the song is about...

    I thought they were. Nashville and NHL hockey go together like Carl and a healthy salad.

    Nashville and hockey is like LA and football; no chemistry. Almost as bad as baseball and Detroit.

    See, it's like Carl enjoying a nice spinach salad, with quinoa.

    Derek Trucks, the son of Butch Trucks (drummer for Allman Bros.) is keeping up their tradition of excellent music (and his wife Susan Tedeschi) and is one of only a handful of "new" groups I would pay to see...George Thorogood being anunder...

    I'm surprised ZZ Top hasn't been mentioned. I've seen them 3 times, and if you you want to rock AND have fun, this is the band!

    Someone earlier mentioned Alvin Lee (Ten Years After). Here's a great video from his Woodstock performance:

    I saw the Tedeschi Trucks band in 2012?, downtown Charlottesville. I won tickets on the local radio station, as usual. Susan was really cute, but very talented. Last year I won tickets to see Delta Rae, and they were also very good. During the sound check, which we got to attend, they broke into Led Zep's, The Ocean. After that amazing song, I yelled 'Freebird' as a joke, but they played it...about a minutes worth. Apparently, there is some young talent out there.

    I was at our clinic this AM pretending to help and I got to talking about the Allman Bros. with a former patient of mine and friend Garry Petersen, the drummer for the Guess Who who is there again...he's been through a lot orthopaedically speaking. We got to swapping stories about the "good old days" (sign of age, ha!) and he certainly had a lot more to share! Ha! It's always interesting hearing stuff from someone that has been in the business for a long time. I was almost sucked into that dark world thinking drug, sex and rock 'n roll (though I dabbled in blues bands more) was want I wanted in life.... o_O
