re: FM by Steely Dan - Ace Midnight
[quote]Porcaro was a freak of nature and was playing on master sessions in LA when he was 17 years old.[/quote] It is argued that he is the most influential pop/rock drummer of the 70s and 80s - and I find it hard to argue with that. Started drumming at 7, was playing with seasoned musicians a...

re: How well regarded was General Patton before the movie "Patton"? - Ace Midnight
[quote]He was also the wealthiest man in the military because he came from money and married into even bigger wealth. [/quote] He funded a PCS move to Hawaii on his own dime - using a family yacht. That's OT money, right there. :lol: ...

re: FM by Steely Dan - Ace Midnight
[quote]Porcaro did play on several tracks over the years and if I recall correctly all of Katy Lied but he was never a "member" of the group original or otherwise. Just another studio guy. Not sure if that's what you meant but your statement sort of implied that. [/quote] That's what I meant - P...

re: How well regarded was General Patton before the movie "Patton"? - Ace Midnight
[quote]I disagree Ace. The movie is widely regarded as one of the best, most accurate biographical movies ever made.[/quote] The real Patton had a higher pitched, nasally oice. However, it is difficult to imagine a more compelling portrayal of a real life figure - so the casting of Scott was an ...

[quote]Would anyone even disagree if we called it Donald Fagen and a bunch of studio musicians[/quote] I would take somewhat of an issue - your interpretation isn't without support - Fagen was the "senior" partner, without question, but Becker's playing is the soul of Steely Dan, IMHO - both his ...

[quote]Bradley was as bad as Montgomery[/quote] Meh - he was the main ground forces commander for Overlord, greenlit Cobra, Dragoon and Market-Garden (although that was everybody) - if anything, they were overly aggressive with Market-Garden. Both he and Monty get a knock for being too passive, ...

re: How well regarded was General Patton before the movie "Patton"? - Ace Midnight
[quote]The movie attempted to make him look bad? It makes him look like an incredible leader with strict unwavering rules, and the only general the Germans were afraid of. [/quote] Well, Omar Bradley was the technical advisor and they did want (successfully) to show the contrast, but they also w...

re: How well regarded was General Patton before the movie "Patton"? - Ace Midnight
[quote]Was that how he was thought of before the movie?[/quote] He's widely regarded as one of America's top generals - as a battlefield, combat commander, he is up there with Washington and Confederate generals Lee and Jackson. The movie (one of my favorite, by the way) - attempted to make hi...

re: Whats the best gun safe to buy? - Ace Midnight
[quote]None of them are "safe" or "unbreakable"...[/quote] True - you can buy a metal gun cabinet for a very low price. You can buy a commercially produced "gun safe" for a premium - and they have options covering everything up to 60/72 gun safes and 5 figures. These are aggressively marketed...
