Good for Robert Plant!

It can't be about the money. Unless the members of the band are complete wastrels they have to be loaded. (I read an amazing stat once. Between 1972 and 1978 LZ record sales alone accounted for a quarter of Atlantic Records' profits.) He has a well received solo career he obviously enjoys very much. Why slog around recreating the lost youth of bunch of boomers who are willing to pay ridiculous prices for tickets? (I paid $6 when I saw them in 1973.)

Good for Robert Plant!

ZOSO just recharted on Billboard top ten.

This may be Elton's best song, very progressive for our Mark:

I love this kind of stuff.

The dude has built a synth that takes signals from sensors that detect changes in the weather, temperature, wind, sun, and rain and generates tones that are streamed live over the interweb. Sunrise and sunset are particularly interesting. He's based in New Orleans so adjust your time accordingly.

Actually it makes a great soundtrack for the video from the ISS.

Mark, remember that rock lyrics are always tongue and cheek. Especially harder music and rap. They use outrage as a lark. Woo.

Today is woo day. Woo.

Tongue IN cheek. IN. Not and. IN

And no, not always. I'd suggest that you try telling Rage Against The Machine or Public Enemy that their "outrage" was a "lark".

Yeah, woo day. I suspect you don't understand the term "woo" either. SMH

Unless you're Ozzy or Black Sabbath. In which case he's probably correct.

You've never attempted a more poorly reasoned or worded post, Home Fry.

See? Who could wish violence on a soul who creates silliness such as this? It's perhaps a sole redeeming quality (outside a certain nearly infrangible gentleness), in terms of his writing. Anything else about Franklin, I know not shit.

NOTE; My poor word choice was purposeless.
