Maybe a little step back for everyone

OP: Maybe a little step back for everyone

Maybe everyone needs to wake up.

 

My favorite band of all time YES, and Jon Anderson as the front man. Saw them 11 times all over the US. Nice that he sang that with musician's other then YES, but I saw the original Going for the One tour in CA with Rick Wakeman. I was awakened in the 70's, and not meaning WOKE. Not sure where you're coming from, and I'll leave it there as I did not want to reply to this post other then to post a song about PEACE.

Mine as well. Seen them over 20 times. Awaken. As meant for people to be aware of what’s happening right under their collective noses. To take action not step back. Time to move forward. Peace not violence. 

Lots of locked posts with some heated discussions, and sometimes a little step back before moving forward was why I selected that thread title.

Nothing to do with this post, but here are a few others to listen too...

If I had to pick one guitarist like no other guitarist in the world... he's it.  That guy was on a level that a handful of guitarists have ever touched.  Hendrix if I had to pick one was "the greatest."  But even Steve Vai was like, "I know how every other guitarist thinks... and I had no clue how Holdsworth thought."  I started listening to some of his older stuff with Tempest, Gong and Jean-Luc Ponty and even back then he just slays almost all other guitar players.  Whenever you discover a new guitarist your old listening experience comes into play.  I grew up listening to to pretty much everybody at some point.  When I first heard Holdsworth my jaw literally dropped off.  Uhhhh.  WHAT?!  Holdsworth was like if Jackson Pollack liked the saxophone then switched to guitar.  His playing just stops you in your tracks. (I mean, of the last 60 years, maybe Ollie Halsall who played with Kevin Ayers and also in Tempest, was that "out there" just from a stylistic approach... but even fewer people even know who that guy was.)  Holdsworth was almost peerless and it's a tragedy he is no longer with us. 

Gong.... I can remember (well almost) when I heard them on WRVR in New York (106.7) before they switched to country music which at the time made me lose my mind lol... They were the only place to listen to fusion. at the time, and when it went away I wept. I learned classical piano as a child, and when I made it to teenager, I started liking rock, like most kids, however then I hear YES and it turned my whole musical listening around. From Yes, Genesis, etc... to fusion when I heard 106.7, I liked Ponty, but my favorite Holdsworth collaboration is with Bill Bruford. Some of the guitar solo's are out of this world.  (Feels good to me, and One of a Kind)...
