    Why is Pink Floyd more popular and appealing than Rush?

    For me it’s always been a tossup between Rush’s Dark Side of the Moon and Pink Floyd’s 2112.

    Are you still with the mother/father of your first child?

    First wife lasted 13 years, started great, 2 kids, but things went sideways. Second time a charm, happily married for 24 years now and until death do us apart. To those of you who made it right the first time, I tip my hat, and I say you are so fortunate to remain innocent from the fallout of...

    Isn't there a better term than "luthier" to describe modern guitar makers?

    All in the same way that luthier means someone who builds guitars... it's not about the etymology but about the convention.

    Isn't there a better term than "luthier" to describe modern guitar makers?

    I'm an engineer and my work has nothing to do with engines. The term architect means "chief builder" however an architect today is neither a chief nor a builder, but a designer of buildings. The word doctor means "teacher". Times change and so do conventions and the meaning of words.

    Eulogy - Tool

    Ralph this is great! How long have you been back? That's a lot of material to learn well in a short time regardless of how familiar you are with the song. Such great tone, well done man.

    My opinion on mixing sound for bands wearing shorts

    If a band is killing it, I could care less whether they are wearing suits, spandexes, dragon jumpsuits, or socks. I’m there for the music, not a fashion show.

    Pantera Reunion

    Although Zakk can play anything he wants to play, even on a blind test that video has Zakk written all over it. Makes it kind of obvious how something as seemingly subtle as a vibrato will have the signature of the player all over it. Dimebag was as much an incredible guitar player as he was...

    If they say anything, break it to them gently: “‎Some of my finest hours have been spent on my back veranda, eating brownies and observing as far as my eye can see while playing this old guitar."

    New study shows people under 40 years old should not drink alcohol (no health benefits, only risks)

    For the Mayans it was forbidden to drink alcohol until the age of 70, after that you were allowed to drink all you want.

    Webb Telescope first images

    the first stars formed about 100 million years after the Big Bang, the universe was already pretty big by then. We would see those stars spread all over the sky. The furthest thing we are able to see is the microwave background radiation, from when the universe became transparent about 300,000...
