MUSE! No, they are not classic rockers, but I do like them. Saw them last time they were here and definitely looking forward to tomorrow night at the Rose Garden. I'm pretty sure my capka would not be a fan, in fact, quite positive he has no idea who they are.
I particulary like this song, because I will not be "forced, degraded or controlled" and I will, in fact, be "victorious." Just sayinG. Stated.
Two of my favorite records of all time, the ones from childhood that we listened to over and over and over very careful not to scratch the record with the needle. Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band "Stranger in Town" and "Rumours" by Fleetwood Mac. Two best records. Ever.
Seger at the Rose Garden on Saturday, March 30th. And just today, Fleetwood Mac confirmed a Portland date at the arena on June 30th. Kick ass way to start the year around here, eh?
I once downloaded this album on iTunes and accidently burned it to a cd out of order. I threw it away and burned another one with the songs in the exact order they are on the record. I could'nt listen to it any other way. And yes, I wish Christine McVie was still touring with them, but I'll take what I can get.
