I loved the idea of what he was doing but in the end couldn't help thinking he was a dumbass. We drove up to Alaska in a VW van from Georgia and camped within 20 miles of his bus. That's as far as I want to take that. His death just seemed completely pointless. ...

I liked Zappa at 16 but only some of it, now a lot more of it makes sense. Similarly I liked the Who but didn't really care for Live at Leeds. Live music is something I'm much more into now than at 16. Also Folk/West Texas/Blues/Cajun/Zydeco/The Dead are the kind of ...

Agreed. Reckoning and Dead Seat came out in 1981 but were recorded in 1980 and are WAY better than Go to Heaven. But it does have some great new material, just in an uninspired package.
I'll throw out Warren Zevon - Stand In the Fi...
