Duane was the second best guitarist in his band.

I love Duane Allman, but this statement is not true whatsoever.

Go listen to Miles Davis' A Tribute to Jack Johnson and get back to me.

Jimi Hendrix was a world wide product at the time of his death. Duane Allman was just starting to make a noise when he died. He could've changed the entire landscape of American music had he stayed alive. ABB went on to be the standard in a genre they created and they did it WITHOUT their greatest musician and they're self appointed leader and driving force. What they could have done with him.

Dickie himself would laugh you out of the room for this statement

Frank Zappa is more talented than Jimi or Duane.

That said, i could give two fricks about all 3. Id rather listen to Pink.

Unpopular enough?

Anyone who is into rock music knows this. Zappa was a better overall musician than Jimi or Duane and not that far behind in guitar playing.

I just checked their website. 930 gets better acts.

I just checked Troubadour. 930 gets better acts.

I've never heard of the other two, so I'll assume it's the same deal.

I know most of 'em. It's pretty stacked for a club. Though I do feel its a lot "safer" than it once was. There used to be an element of danger to the DC scene which I don't think you can (or even want) to replace. But let's just say a show at the 930 is a lot more tame now than it was in the late 80s.

But you gotta grow up. But I will say there used to be a guy who did f'n backflips off the stage. He was a local skate punk, and he'd get airborne and do these massive backflips into the crowd, just expecting people to catch him. We always did. It was that kind of environment. Looking back, it was remarkably stupid, and that kid could've died, hell SHOULD HAVE died, any number of times. But he didn't. Because nothing could happen to us when we were young and idealistic.

sounds like what i was describing earlier about state palace. place was really out of control in the late 90s and start of 2000s. people just in there with nitrous tanks and whatever else you could fit in a backpack. shite the security was always high and selling drugs.

Lennon/McCartney/Harrison were/are excellent songwriters. None of the Beatles were good singers or musicians.

Nirvana, musically, was nothing special at all. No better than most garage/bar bands doing the same type of music.

Radiohead makes sounds, not music. Two different things.

They do some.

Deadmau5 collapses on stage at 930 club

I saw deadmau5 the night before he collapsed on stage. There was more box in that place that night than a goddamn fedex warehouse.

But in DC the best venue for electronic music is definitely echostage. They get seriously good acts. http://www.echostage.com/

Was this when the "hardcore punk" scene was thriving?

I don't hate Eddie Vedder, but do consider him the unholy spawn for a whole generation of mumbling dipsh#t frontmen. This might be a popular opinion, not sure.
