  1. really! they were at Monterrey Pop? I guess between Hendrix and Joplin I must have gone to pee. Oh well, nothing lost.
  2. D-man and edwin what can I say? I have noticed in the last few months how much Klipsch and its People do for the people on this forum(yearly pilgrimages for example and if anyone has talked to Tech Support and how they will go out of their way to help for example I called Tech Support and spoke with Stephen Philips late one evening about the older crossovers and as we were finishing talking I realised he had stayed well past his quitting time.). People have talked of the support for the Heritage Line wasn't what it should be But I say these days business is hard and the going mentality is Older Technology isn't good and alot of companies give in to the lets introduce something new to keep sales up whether its really an improvement. Klipsch is working to hold onto the Heritage Line and I honestly don't think many companies do that these days. I've owned Klipsch since 1987 and have had the privilage of a tour of the Hope Factory twice in the early 1990s. Back then I got to know Ginney Sanders and Jim Hunter also who personelly helped me when I had some problems with some La Scalas I had bought and they tried to arrange a meeting with PWK on one of those tours I was given but unfortunatley I just missed him. ALSO for those that will understand this after years of wanting and finally getting my 1979 Khorns(bought in 1990) and can appreciate the Genius of PWK's Design, Build Quality, Craftmanship and The letters stamped U.S.A. on the back of them then yes I do take pride in owning such a High Quality Product both then and now. So again I will say Thanks to Klipsch for being the kind of company with the kind of people that will treat a customer such as me so well over so many years!!! mike[] Plus it is hard to argue with a chihuahua.
  3. Putting alot of chrome on a Pinto isn't going to make it a Porche. Not better - it's worse. _______________________________ No but it might make it more fire proof.............
  4. Think of Ned from South Park singing Kumbaya and you get the picture.....
  5. Interestingly enough, the experiments you speak of are being toyed with by today's youngsters. So maybe Klaatu has had more influence on them than the Beatles.
  6. Not really a rant, just your version of history. The looping and scratching was started way before the end of the 90's though. Take MC Hammer's "You Can't Touch This" for example. A pure Rick James line with dancing and a one phrase lyric. Even before that there was "Just the two of us" which in its chord progression sounds a lot like 50 ways to leave your lover. Yeah disco sucked for rockers but punk was already gaining ground before disco became overbearing. Nice synopsis Pauln.
  7. Lead me through tortured dreams childhood themes of nights alone
  8. the scary part is that my memory for lyrics is what it used to be, and that ain't (oh man i just said ain't) good. ______________________________________________- the carrot is better than the stick, but in this case, the carrot is a stick
  9. ok edit here, my bad. My life's course is guided decided by learned strong (some say limits drawn) _______________________________ parentheses represent alternate lyrics
  10. Living Sin from the same lp? __________________________________________ Trilogy is one of those lp's that reminds me why I bought the Forte's
  11. A lot of present day music get their influences from late 70's punk and even 60's stuff that is basically a reaction to over mixed/processed (to them) studio work. The idea is to get back to the rawness that made rock great in the first place. When I subjected my son to ELP and Yes he remarked that now he understood why punk happened. It represents a returning to the guy on the street from the virtuoso musicians of prog rock. I'm not sure I like it but I do appreciate where it comes from. A case in point is that the Beatles stopped performing live because their latest stuff was so studio enhanced (among other reasons I'm sure). _______________________________________________________________ The original harm's way: "I will not have anything to do with a ship that is not fast because I intend to go in harm's way."

  12. Why haven't you caught hell for not offering first to the forum before listing on ebay? Or did I miss something here?
  13. wicked tune Fish! I'll leave this up for the rest to fight it out.
  14. Look here brother ______________________ Just a little help, I don't think the intention with this is to stump. Frank Zappa is my hero, and should be every American's hero.
  15. I know the artist, can't recall the tune. I will paraphrase Clint Eastwood as dirty harry: "No one, I mean no one I know took this guy seriously."
