re: Appropriate concert age ? 7 year old - Htowntiger90
Took my son to a couple of Rush shows when he was 8 & 10 years old. Was surprised how many youngsters I saw there. Those were outdoor shows and we didn't need earplugs. We saw Rush again in NOLA 2011 & I wish we had brought earplugs. It was too loud for him inside Smoothie King with Geddy's ...

[quote]Was there!! Zac Wylde on guitar, Alice In Chains as warm up band. Layne Staley on crutches wailing his ARSE off.[/quote] Yeah I remember Staley rolling around in a wheelchair on stage too. We took a beer break between sets and almost missed Ozzy's first tune. Heard the crowd and the firs...

re: Ozzy banned from BR '84 - driven by a "Community Leader" then this happened - Htowntiger90
Right, it wasn't the Swag that got Ozzy cancelled...but when Ozzy heard "Louisiana preacher gets busted with prostitute" I'm guessing the song idea came pretty quickly. We saw Ozzy at UNO on the "No More Tours" tour in '92. I'm sure he took a little more pleasure singing that tune in NOLA. Stil...

re: Hemingway doc spinoff - What's your favorite EMH writing? - Htowntiger90
My favorite novel of his is [i]The Old Man and the Sea[/i]. Still working through his short stories. I've put Faulkner and Steinbeck above Hemingway as far as great 20th Century writers, but I do appreciate his style more so of late. I'd like to reread his big four novels at some point....

re: That's the way basketball should be played - Htowntiger90
It was a great game last night and tomorrow night should be a good one. I agree with other posters - SEC schools attract top flight players and athletes, but it takes more than that to build a complete team. FWIW, three starters in the Baylor-UH game were from LA....
