I saw Jason last night and he was absolutely the business. Jason is also a reliable,good-natured,hard working young man,therefore likely to lose out in the notoriety,ennui, and ballsachingly boring story stakes.

I guess really only time will tell who is remembered throughout the ages and who is not.  I was a little surprised when I heard a Mozart piece on the radio the other day, but it was not the Mozart that composed The Magic Flute or Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, it was a child of his.

Jason is very interesting guy to listen to.
He told me and a few friends stories about his father and Led Zep that I'm sure most don't get to hear on Mtv or Radio.

I wish him alot of luck with the Zep show comming up and his tour with Foreigner.

I do however gotta ask him about the TV show with him & Ted Nugent.

Boy was that show a bad Train Wreck.

Yes, but JB was the only normal guy in that bunch, wouldn't you say Paul? The rest of that crew were train wrecks, I agree.

Mozart didn't compose Eine Kleine Nachtmusik? (well, sniff sniff...I guess I'll survive, but that rocks my world...)


dr bong... there are much better things to do with heads than stick them in ovens, if you follow my drift. S Plath was the poster child for depression. Stay away from her!

Wolfie composed Eine Kleine... I think MK was saying that the piece he heard recently was written by another Mozart, not the more famous one - an earlier example of an artist overshadowed by their famous father.

Tempted is a great tune. It deserved the ranking.

To clarify, I think Def Leppard has to be ranked high for 80's groups.  Out of ALL of their 80's hits, "Pour Some Sugar On Me", wouldn't even beat the worst song on Hysteria.  Bon Jovi had a much better song on their Fahrenheit album.  It was the one with the video of them on the Jersey boardwalk.

Well at the end of the day, many of those bands in the 100 are long gone and some forgotten.

Many members are no longer even in the music bus.  so what does that really say?

Charts don't tell me who I can and can't listen to.
My life doesn't revolve around charts.

So lets just STOP talking about them stupid charts.
