    Molly Hatchet is a group that has probably disappointed more people than any other band, on account of the album art that accompanied each purchase. (...thin connection to the hobbits, perhaps...)

    Part of my mind is absolutely bored by these guys and their cliché clinic, and dumbfounded that they ever got a major label deal--but the rest of my mind (the part largely unconcerned with music probably, or maybe it's something to do with the South) will go days during which its idling frequencies habitually leak out this song, running it in the background, and I even do the guy's voice out loud if no one else is around.

That gives them more credibility as I didn't know so much about them.. I picked up a few good tracks I hadn't heard before too. I agree that they're not in the same category. BBC iplayer will have the doc.

    And I remembered these tracks as really good:

    Sister no. 3 plaid the Allman Brothers and Leon Russell quite a bit growing up. "Melissa" is one that I enloyed along with this one:

    ^ I Agree Paul, Python lee Jackson's Broken Dream, one of my all time favorites. Early Rod Stewart and one of his best.



    This is how we did it in the old daysh shonny.

    Led Zep. Whole lotta love.

    This song has everything, it is an almost perfect example of the 70's rock genre. Radar Love.

    I've just listened to the whole of this Muddy Waters album and it is getting a second playing, great stuff, love the blues from time to time:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2KfJb...feature=fvwrel

    Blues? Rock? It is all quite similar. This rocks anyway so it counts. Of course without blues there would be no rock anyway and I can't find a blues thread, so quit jumping down my throat in advance.

    Oscar Wilde (1854-1900).

    I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.

    Ah - now you're compromising the rockness of the thread. Next thing you know, Fleetwood Mac will be posted - and not their fantastic earlier stuff either, just their good 80s tunes.

    In fact here's one now - uh ah.

    Every so often one writes something that evokes an unexpected reaction so strong that it's a bit worrying. About ten years ago I wrote the following, and it became apparent that I was quite likely to be lynched.....

    I do not dislike Stevie Nicks merely because she sings like a whistle in a plughole. I dislike her for her style - she thinks she's a faerie elf but she looks like a transvestite gnome. I dislike her for her vapid, groundless philosophising. I dislike her for her contrived, solipsistic lyrics and for the fact that she believes she's writing poetry. I dislike her for her cultivated air of floaty, ethereal otherworldliness - which consists mainly of wearing dresses with wizard-sleeves in which she waves her arms about like a four-year-old trying to be a tree. But mainly I dislike her for her unshakeable and conceited conviction that she's any freaking good at anything apart from lending some post-acid masturbatory glamour to an otherwise talented but unphotogenic rock band.

    I hope that's clear. Thank you.

    Tomorrow - Judy Garland: what a terrible waste of time.


    My feelings towards Stevie haven't changed a bit, and those feelings extend to anything with which she's associated.

    Getting back to the Classic Rock thing, though...

    Well, you know...

    Well, you know...
    She was trying to very ethereal and floaty in that video, and yes she did wave it about like a four year old. Not sure about your assessment of her visual qualities though. I heard many a rasping lager lout eulogise her qualities in the 80s. (I spent a lot of the 80s in pubs).

    I still like the tune.

    Well what about some of their earlier stuff?

    I can't say I have ever listened to any Fleetwood Mac, it sounds promising though.

    Stevie Nicks used to have a great voice, but she pretty much destroyed it on the very long and hard-partying Rumours tour.

    And why all the venom for a completely harmless eccentric?
