She's not as ethnic as other girls I've dated, so that is a concern. She does have some Irish, but hopefully that 1/4 Mexican will brown that red out.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Congrats! Sorry I missed this.

If you were stranded on Hoy Island, what are the top five albums you'd want to have with you?

Maybe some (H) Oi! albums.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

'Anatomy of a Drum Solo' a two-disc set, presents newly-recorded, in-studio footage of legendary Neil Peart discussing his approach to soloing. Using a solo recorded in September, 2004 in Frankfurt, Germany as a framework, Neil talks about the concepts and technique behind each segment of this nine-minute tour de force, which is a feature of each Rush performance. 'Anatomy of a Drum Solo' also features: Two explorations - completely improvised workouts at the drums, each over thirty-minutes long.

Drum solos are the musical equivalent of a bag of shit. The only good one I can think of is Ringo's mercifully short one on the Abbey Road medley.

What makes Ringo's solo so appealing is that it was done only at the request of the other three. Ringo hated drum solos and only relented because it was their last album. So of course what he turned in was such a no-nonsense solo.

That said, bass solos are worse than drum solos.

Maybe a brown rice turd in a Harrods carrier bag.

With throwdowns on both the drum and bass, seems as good a place as any to post Gene Krupa's Big Noise from Winnetka:
