    Motivation for the Reverend!

    Sounds great, Stingx! Back when I was at the Sem we had about a 10 minute version of that we would play. I was on bass for that. Very fun song to play.

    Motivation for the Reverend!

    Rev, I got my M-Audio FireWire 410 FULLY functional under Windows 10 and can get crazy low recording latency. Here's a familiar tune I just recorded this

    Rev, you know what motivates me? Going to a stellar concert performance and coming back all pump up. You know what else motivates me? Playing great music

    Hey Zman! Glad to hear that most of your dexterity has returned! I've been enjoying playing and actually made some progress but I ran into a problem:

      I wonder/fear what the official cause of death will be. 57 is too young. I was a teenager for the majority of the 80s, so obviously Prince's music (particularly 1999 and Purple Rain) was well-known, even to a metalhead like me.

      Eddie Trunk wondered out loud on Facebook why people rush out to buy records once the artist is dead. If you liked his music, why didn't you own it already? That's the thing about great artists, though, often they are more famous in death than in life.

      I also heard that he has a TON of unreleased songs. I have the feeling he may end up giving Jimi a run for posthumous releases.

      In the FWIW category: my favorite Prince cover is the Hindu Love Gods' (aka Warren Zevon and REM) version of "Raspberry Beret."

      That ain't Lake Minnetonka.
