Not sure if you are referring to just the song or the live album by the same name. The live set was an important step into my becoming a lifelong fan of hard rock. I believe I was 9 when it came out, and begged my older brother to play it often.

bill- It was actually a little bit of both; I was listening to the song while watching the (concert) movie.

They're going to be on Letterman tonight (3 Dec) if you're interested.

Thanks for the heads up. Will watch for sure. Are they playing or just being interviewed?

Right now

Neil Young - Freedom

I think they are just being interviewed. Letterman is receiving the Kennedy Center Honors this year along with Zepplin, Dustin Hoffman, and couple of others. He is interviewing his fellow honorees over the next couple of weeks...

Who's playing? I just took out the Angela Hewitt recording from the library but haven't had a chance yet to listen.


Sviatoslav Richter

I've just ordered the newer Andras Schiff recording as well. But I am really very fond of the Richter.

Pretty lame interview I thought. You don't get the sense that letterman knows much about music.
JPJ was funny though

I got the sense that he knew the band by name only.

Robert Plant looks terrible.

Despite the fact that Plant had a hard time keeping up on a few songs, it's pretty good.


He lives in Austin now and his wife, Patty Griffin who's a great performer in her own right, had a gig at The Continental Club last Saturday. It was billed as "Patty Griffin and her driver" which got folks thinking - sure enough it was him. I wasn't able to go but heard some clips and he sounded pretty damn good.

High praise. Was this a recent concert?

I have thought they have been mere shadows of themselves for a very longtime now.


+1. I hate to quibble over my taste in music vs. Yours but they were terrible at the 12.12.12 concert. I saw them live in the mid-90s, and they were great, but they on the down slope then

+2. If I want to see a concert from when the Stones were on their game and still relevant...Ladies & Gentlemen: The Rolling Stones.

I saw them in 78, 81 and 89 and none of those shows were very good.

In the ranking of living poets, Cohen holds a very high place. About the limit of my ability is being able to recognize him.

You and me both - along with about 50 million other people. Could you imagine the Ticketmaster server crashes if they were to announce an on-sale date?


Based on the CD (admittedly, 5 years ago was the concert) they sound fantastic. They obviously don't need the money, because a tour would generate the most $ ever, IMO
