    I am starting to see, althogh in very small drops, the very much
    welcomed return of Real instrument based music.....on TV AND on the
    RADIO! Some stuff even include ADULTS and vocalist who can actually
    sing and I'll be damned, some of the songs sound even happy and are
    about having a good time! Could it be that the draught is almost
    over?

    Any chance for a 42 year old, can play nearly 10 chords on the guitar and
    can play keyboards (including a thing called a piano....doesn't need
    electricity or a computer) with two hands.

    Christ, let's hope not. Grand Funk Railroad were bad enough first time
    around.

    By the way, the appropriate word is "drought", not "draught".

    I heard on the radio last night that Grand Funk Railroad are going to be
    playing here sometime soon...

    On the other hand, how much "real" is left by the time it's all been run
    through auto-tune and edited phrase by phrase?

    If you like GFR, see them. They're still good, and Farner can still sing
    his ass off.

    Wierd, just yesterday I was going thru some softsynth sounds and
    noticed 1 or sounded like (or reminded my of) the keys from the
    Phoenix album. The last I heard (1-2 yrs ago) they were doing a
    concert in fla, but without Mark. Which had most GFR fans in uproar.

    I Love "Winter in my Soul" (grt vx) and "Paranoid" from the red album.

    You mean actual Music is returning? Yee hah!

    Drum machines are just so much puke. When they first came out I got one just
    like all my friends and they were great if you were a song writer and didn't
    have a drum kit around. Sampled stuff is still very useful, but let's face
    it, if you really have a choice, the real thing allows of a much higher
    degree of musical expression. Young people, like my 21 year old niece for
    example, just expect percussion to always sound canned and with robot like
    quantization. I don't think many kids have much idea as to the expression
    that can be had when a real human being is sitting at a drum kit, actually
    interacting with other musicians.

    So okay, if real music is on the way back, when do the "AutoTuned" and
    "Finalized"-to-death fads end? :p

    Great song, love bass/guitar licks, And of course, Mark's voice.
    It may seem very simple to today's standards but I still love it.

    I don't think he's with the current group, at least not according to the
    web site.

    Sadly too many self-styled drummers have way too much "expression". In
    other words they have no rhythm.

    Well, I guess it was about 4 or so years ago when I saw them, but they
    were really good for a band that I figured had already retired. Farner was
    with them, still wearing that silly band on his arm and bright red shoes. He
    could still sing and play like he used to, still running and jumping around
    the stage like always. But I admit I haven't kept track of the band, they
    were never one of my favorites, just good solid rock n roll worth going to
    see if they came through town. They played the Canyon Club at the Bronco
    Bowl, which is a nice, fairly small venue (like 1k seats). The only thing I
    didn't like is that I went to GFR and then missed Jethro Tull like a week
    later because I had already spent my monthly concert budget. I would've seen
    JT instead if I had known they were coming before I bought the tickets.

    I thought that was the real purpose of the click track; to establish a steady
    rhythm. (heh-heh)

    Reality studio or "play all the time for no reason at all".

    Remember school band? "All you people with discipline problems and can't play
    an instrument, get in the drum line"

    I still love their tunes, the early one mostly. But was real
    dissapointed the they didn't get back together fully. I mean, without
    Mark, it isn't GFR.
    WTF are they thinking? although, I still may get some GFR merchandise.
    Looks like very nice stuff.

    I was gonna say 'shame on you' but I read on and realized it was a cruel
    joke the industry played on you.

    Tull fan for good, I remain...

    Yes, 'tis true. Strange how otherwise talented people can be so lacking in
    rhythmic sense. :p

    Real? No. The samplers are getting better. More RAM, and higher speed.
    But it is still all MIDI musicians.
