Btw if, like me, anyone here is addicted to classic rock from the 60's through to the 90's, I just recently came across a link on another MLB site forum to THE most amazing classic rock radio station that I have ever heard, they broadcast out of Los Angeles, and it's KSWD 100.3 The Rock LA.com ...
100.3 The Rock LA
I now have this station playing in the house from any place where there's an intenet hook-up and a notebook/laptop/PC lying around, I really don't need local Irish rock radio anymore. If you are into classic rock, just one hour of this stuff and you will be hooked.
Reminds me, I have tickets for the Roger Waters 'The Wall' tour show at the O2 Arena in Dublin next May, did anyone catch 'The Wall' tour over in US yet? I can barely wait, as I never saw Floyd live, mainly because for some obscure reason as far as I can tell the bastards never played a show in Ireland, ever, despite the fact that we have Croke Park (capacity 85,000) Lansdowne Road Stadium (capacity 55,000) and Slane Castle (capacity 100,000), which I'd have thought were all big enough even for The Floyd!

Amazing that the same singer made this 20 years later. I guess it has it's place, but it's roughly 1/1000th as cool.

Got my tickets a couple of weeks ago for Rush, and I am totally pumped for this. They are playing the O2 Arena in Dublin on May 12th, which happens to be the day before my wife's birthday, so we are all off to the big city for a couple of days, there's a games-room, and pool at the hotel where the boys can splash around all night while we are at the show. Seen Rush before 3 times, once actually way back in 1996 at the Izod Center in NJ (though back then I think it was the Continental Airlines Arena) and I always really loved their consumate musicianship - for me the most technically gifted drums/guitar/bass combo, Geddy somehow occasionally manages to sing, play his bass, play effects foot-pedals, and also play keyboards virtually all simultaneously!, and also their rather lyrically obscure and challenging but very rewarding songs and style. So basically, I can't wait, seems an appropriate band to revive my flagging 'Jukebox' with a couple of tunes from the Rush archives...

Next up is the genuinely great and unique Billy Joel, BJ seems to have gone into retirement, though without actually announcing that he has, apart from that classical piano record he released, he's not had an album of new songs out now for 19 years, since River of Dreams in 1993, so that to me is an artist who isn't interested anymore, either that or he has writer's block, or he's just disilussioned with the business, or maybe there's some other reason, but it seems as if he's done. But anyway he wrote some of the greatest songs IMO of the last 40 years, here's a few, including a couple filmed at those 'Last Play at Shea' concerts in 2008.

Meanwhile, the existence of this thing makes me cry.
