70 years old ... man is the rock world getting old.

I didn't know that Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Keith Moon played on 'Beck's Bolero' - great tune.

all due respect to "Blow By Blow", but i've always preferred his followup "Wired".

Wired is pretty wound up. I am a Truth/Blow by Blow fan first.

Blow by Blow was better than wired only because it was the breakthrough that allowed Wired to happen.


But I'm partial to The Pump.

I got 'Truth' at a tender age as well - to this day "Ain't Superstitious" is one of my favorite songs.

My brother dragged me kicking and screaming into Beck's later work and I find I like that guy more than ever. His vids suggest that he is kind person and enjoys seeing other folks play well.
