    Darn. I didn't buy one.

    If I'm not in the air by 10, I don't go since I wouldn't have enough time in St Louis before my return flight.

    Is it rude to point out that these may be two different things?

    If so, please ignore.

    Roger is still my favorite lead singer of all time, but I think the Stones are the best band. Every member of the Stones seems to give something up/tone it down a hair for the good of the song. Despite Mick's "flash" he is a pretty subdued singer a lot of the time. Charlie dumbs down his playing for the benefit of the tune.

    Never thought Zep was much of a "band". Greatest drummer ever. Very good guitar player. Singer too androgynous. But not as tight as the best bands.

    In more recent times, Rage is the best band I have seen. Super tight. Insanely good live show.

    Can't really argue with the Stones, either. Saw them at WW about 6 years ago. Excellent show. Sorry I missed Quadrophenia in Greensboro earlier this month but my old ears can only take so many decibels and I save most of them for games at Cameron.

    The Who > The Stones. There, I said it.

    Even if we say that the singer and lead guitarists are about equal, and that both bands were extremely prolific with staying-power songs, you have John Entwistle and Keith Moon compared to Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts. I like Charlie, but that's not a close comparison of rhythm sections.

    The world didn't end, I'm free from holding back on opinions now. If only I could fit them under 140 characters. #Twitterbomb #hashtag #offthechizain #wayconfused #needdecaf #soybomb

    The day's not over yet.

    I can see edouble's argument, especially with longevity figured in with the Stones. But I still like The Who better. I'm with you.

    Plus 1? Plus sideways eight! The Who is the best band ever.

    Almost Perfect

    According to my wife, I am almost perfect!

    She says she can only find two things wrong with me:
    1) Everything I say
    2) Everything I do

    Is she a Mike Cross fan? He points this out in one of his songs - but says it is true of all men.

    Well, either she stole it from him, or he stole it from her, in which case I think my wife may be due some royalties.

    Seriously, I did not know Mike Cross was still around. I had not heard anything about him since I moved from Durham to Atlanta in the early 80's. Still have the "Bounty Hunter" album filed away somewhere in my basement. Might have to dig it out.

    I don't know if he is still around or not. I think that song might have been on his Best of the Funny Stuff album/cd.

    eta - per his website, he still has concert dates listed. The song is Farewell Toasts and has some great lines. And yes - he owes her royalties.

    My wife, part 2

    I really thought things might be getting better between my wife and me, and that she was getting more romantic.

    I overheard her phone conversation with a friend, where my wife was saying she was planning on taking me out. It was only later in the conversation that I discovered she was talking about using her new Glock 9 mm.

    Old Room/Dorm

    Went to Duke-Wake game Saturday. Great getting back! Shot pic of my old room in house G for my old freshman roommate (1959). (Outside shot, of course). Lots of things have changed but not the view around there.
    Boy, is this picture gonna turn loose some memories in Charlie!! ....

    Not to take this thread off-off topic, but what's with the horse on the front page? Is there a Duke connection I am missing?
