G-Ghost, have you seen The Last Indian? Great flick with Anthony Hopkins portraying an old stubborn Kiwi with an Indian side kick. Good show on him, I think his name was Osbourne, like ol' Ozzie. The guy still holds a world record I'd love to break! :wink: 8)

The Worlds Fastest Indian, Burt Munro was a local legend in his hometown of Invercargill, he used to make all the parts for his motorcycles. He bored out his old 1920 Indian Scout (ouch kemosabe) from 600cc to 950cc and still holds a lot of speed records here and in Australia as well as the US. He began setting records in the late 1930's and the crazy bastard continued to race through to the early 1970's. (insert crazy pumpkin here) The classic thing for me was him beating the local bikie (biker)gang at the beach races, then those same guys helped raise the money to get him to the states to race....

A replica of his bike is on display at a museum in the South Island, when you see it it's hard to believe it could do over 200 miles an hour...

My father was a motorcyclist in his yute and I think that rubbed off on me as I love the things and have had countless bikes of all shapes and sizes since I was 14, and surprisingly I'm still alive.

Ghosts, I think, are Undead. Good that you feel alive though, no wonder it's surprising.

Burt Monroe! That guy was amazing!!! He still holds the land speed record for motorcycles under 1000 cc at just over 201mph. WOW! Did you see the movie The Last Indian, G. Ghost? Burt didn't smoke either. Anthony Hopkins does a bang up job as ol' Burt, you would dig it... I'm sure. :wink:

I forgot to say that we saw "Les Hay Babies" in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada a couple of weeks ago....It was a little outdoor concert during the Acadian week festivities.

Pretty OK, I don't know them well (only Black Hole Sun and Kickstand). Unfortunately the volume was drill-out-my-pacemaker loud. They also spent a bundle on their lightshow, which was awesome. But heed this warning: if you go to see them, bring earplugs and sunglasses.
Songs they've played: Spoonman, Mailman, Burden In My Hand, Flower, Been Away For Too Long, Like Suicide, Slaves and Bulldozers, My Wave, Searching With My Good Eye Closed...

Here's the light show at work!

Funny that you said "Pretty OK", that have an album called 'Ultra Mega Ok'. In my opinion, if you were to pick up the album 'Badmotorfinger' - you'd be experiencing their best possible contribution to the music community at large. A masterpiece! :mrgreen:

The Steve Vai show was brilliant as expected. Almost 3hours in a standing room only venue, and noone wanted the show to end ! Great musicians at the top of their game. The robot suit was very funny!

Just bought tickets to see the Tackacs Quartet perform all 6 Bartok string quartets over two nights in Princeton, NJ, October 10 and 11, 2013. I am a huge fan of this music, and this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

I should check that one out.

this one is really good too (fast and dynamic):

and, since you're about to hear these amazing string quartets live, I just wanted to tell you that, way back in the mid-80s, I was lucky enough to hear bartók string quartet from hungary, perform two of bartók's string quartets (the 2nd and the 5th) at a concert in my hometown, back in sweden. it was absolutely great.

it's pretty amazing how loud and intense a string quartet can sound live. 8)
