Any cool concert stories anyone?
It's generally better if I keep my musical opinions to myself (Pink Floyd is an awful band).

I wouldn't say they're awful, just not one that I listen to outside of a couple of songs. However, I will say that I used to go listen to a kickass Filipino Pink Floyd cover band playing in a bar / brothel in Bahrain, whenever I wanted to hear live music outside of pop bands or wanted to practice speaking Thai to the girls.

By the way, Social Distortion worked out fine with the girls. They finished decorating the house, then we did some quality hot tub time and now they're watching some sappy movie in the media room while draining my liquor cabinet.

As a hobby guitarist, I appreciate bands with a degree of technical skill. I can play anything in the pink Floyd catalog drunk off my ass and with one hand. Most of the songs I write have more notes in them than an entire Floyd album.

That's not so much a knock on them as it was a knock on the era. Actual skill with an instrument was awfully rare back in those days, with bands essentially being the background to catchy vocal melodies. When Jimi Hendrix is regarded as the greatest guitarist of that era, you know the bar is set pretty low.

Then again, I've never smoked weed, which apparently is a key ingredient when attempting to enjoy their music.

I agree somewhat but their lyrics are nice, to me. I never touched weed either and I love them

Gilmour's real skills were always more awesome sounding vibrato and bends, but more importantly, the guy wrote awesome solos. He's never been the guy you listen to for playing a ******** of notes in x amount of time. Floyd's music definitely doesn't require weed to enjoy. Their really early stuff was obviously much more influenced by psychedelics and the like, but I'd say anything after "Obscured" was way less influenced.

And dammit, Hendrix was revolutionary. Not only technically, but it was HOW he played guitar that makes him an eternal great. Those were the pioneers, the guys who used the instrument in the forefront and to make emotive music, not these guys that can pick 200 notes a second.

I've had this discussion like a hundred times. I think it comes down to the fact that I'm what you call a "left" brain person. While I can't deny Jimi set the stage for modern guitarists, I view it like I do 1950's football players. For their time they were the best, but nowadays you know it's just on a whole different level.

People do tend to overrate Jimi's technical skill, even at that time he wasn't a very clean/technical/fast player. He was just really creative, connected with his audience, and his persona sold Hendrix as much as his music did.

As for the Floyd stuff, none of it just ever has done anything for me. I went to a "laser light show" of Floyd with my late father a few years ago and I was incredibly disappointed. I think anybody can get into "The Wall" but other than that I just got nothing out of it.

Give me some Steve Hackett, Steve Howe, David Gilmour, Brian May or Eric Clapton any day of the week.

... and smoking weed has never been a requirement to enjoy Steve Hackett's solo in "Firth of Fifth", or Eric Clapton's work in any Cream song; take a listen to his version of Hendrix' "Little Wing" on the Rainbow Concert album.

I specifically referenced pot with Pink Floyd. You've gone and named a bunch of people I wasn't talking about.

I love Clapton. With regards to others, you can't really say "go listen to X" and expect people to like the stuff. That music is still really popular and I've heard it all multiple times.

I like bands that do drugs to write the music so that I don't need to do drugs to enjoy the music.

All music is written on drugs, you didn't know that?
