Nobody likes a quitter, botiz. If you're "nearly" there, I say go for it!
So bored you took the time to log in, read the thread and complain your bored. Everyone stop posting awesome music facts, this guy is bored.
Maybe if we changed the content to boogers and comic books you would gain interest?
I just don't understand that response either, sprig. If you are bored with something, my wisdom gained through years of studying my navel on a mountaintop says don't participate in it anymore. I could say the same about 95% of the posts here, but I don't. Why? Because it's just rude. If people are enjoying a conversation, it is impugning no one, and have similar interests in a particular subject, I don't have to comment on their conversation. Really.. I don't. I can move on to a conversation that I find interesting. I love interesting music trivia, and know some interesting things. I just really didn't want to dominate the conversation with my comments, because, for one reason, most of mine regard the Rolling Stones and I know that I can bore people to tears with that subject!
Tracing the bands that some guys have gone through and the connections between them can be interesting too....follow the paths of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young....Eric Clapton....Delaney and Bonnie...Gram Parsons....Jeff Beck....Ronnie Woods....Waddy Wachtel....Gregg Allman....Chuck Berry...Robbie Robertson...Johnny Johnson and Robert Johnson....and the songwriting of Bob Dylan and it's influence on everyone
. If you really like music I just don't understand how you can be bored with the history of it....where certain sounds came from....the difference between Nashville and Bakersfield country....from whom someone learned a particular style of playing, who their influences were. It's just cool to listen and attempt to discern where they got their inspiration and their style. Keith Richards considered Chuck Berry as the man, and you can hear it when he plays. He learned country from Gram Parsons, who really was a genius that started the whole country rock thing but died too young, and open tuning guitar from Ry Cooder. He, Keith, wants his epitaph to read simply..."He passed it on"
Sure...it may not be everyone's cup of tea....but you don't have
to drink it.
