re: Hearing "Voodoo Chile"'s opening guitar, does Hendrix or 2 Live Crew first come to mind? - johnqpublic
Jimi or Stevie. And Ace is right, it's Voodoo Child (Slight Return). Voodoo Chile is a related but different song. Lately I think about this guy, Lachy Doley, playing it on the Whammy Clav. [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnGrktnnN7U)]Voodoo Child on keys[/link]...

re: 15 Year Old Shot Waiting for School Bus in BR - johnqpublic
WBRZ has update the story ont he link to say: "Police believe the 15-year-old victim was either walking to his bus stop or heading straight to his school, Broadmoor High when a teenage robber approached him with a gun" Because you are right, that is a nearly 2.5 mile walk. In the 80s, I used ...

re: the meaning behind Comfortably Numb lyrics - johnqpublic
This is all pretty well documented. "The Wall is a concept album about an embittered and alienated rock star named Pink. In "Comfortably Numb", Pink is medicated by a doctor so he can perform for a show. The song was inspired by Waters' injection with a muscle relaxant to combat the effects of he...

[quote]I’m down on your snubs with the exception of the Monkeys. Not sure they wrote or played the instruments on the recordings.[/quote] This is a poor argument imo.

re: Tampa Police Chief resigns - johnqpublic
If ANYONE should know the rules in this situation it is the police chief. She then put the deputy in the position of either ticketing the police chief or looking the other way. For me, this seems the greater of the infractions. It's one thing for her to be in the situation, it's another to make some...

re: Online tone generator: How good is your hearing? - johnqpublic
37hz to 16.5k. I could really kind of hear it above that. Or sense it as pressure on my ears. Not bad for as much loud music as Ive listened to in my life. Of course, the quality of your speakers to reproduce extreme high and low freqs will affect your results....
