The Moody Blues - They just keep getting better and better. I also like that they use local orchestras to back them.
The Doobie Brothers - Now that Tom Johnston is back in the fold, these guys can do no wrong. They rock as hard as ever.
Three (or is it Two?) Dog Night - Really disappointing, as this was one of my favorite groups when they were in their prime. Sorry to say, but without Chuck Negron the vocals seemed flat and uninspired.
The Monkees - Similar to the above story. Touring without Michael Nesmith is like Steely Dan touring without Donald Fagin. Nesmith was the guiding force behind The Monkees transition from a mock band to a rock band. Besides writing a lot of the groups’ original material he also was the one who pressed Don Kirchner into allowing the group to develop their own voice. If they really needed the money that badly and Mike didn’t want to go along for the ride, the least they could have done is recruited Tommy Boyce or Bobby Hart to tour with them since those two were responsible for the band’s original sound and instrumentation.
The Rolling Stones
Need I say more?
You are the winner......of the post of the day !!! you got my message.
Yes there are groups that get together and you want to cry with happiness
There are some where you just want to cry : )
Coming to mind was the tour; well not really a reunion but The Cars with Todd Rungren. Of course it all ended after a traffic accident leaving after their show here in Cleveland ..
and then the ugly.... I thought I had seen some bad pics of Keith but yikes the topless look is not a good one for Keith .. although I do not really think he gives a darn and that is cool.
I know this is going to sound crazy but in some ways, Mick looks better now. I know that the athletic pants ... what was that style anyway of his early early years was hhmmm
Anyway, thanks for the post.
I thought it was truly interesting that somebody on the radio was saying that they offer ABBA really big bucks to go out together and tour and they said no, we want to be remembered as we were.
ps what do you think the bands think of their fans now.... ?
