Hahaha glad you caught the stream @sigh butterfly! beatlemaniacs_02_gif I hope the audio wasn't too bad, I heard from some that it was a bit patchy.

Good Lord, Sting is freakin' hard to sing paul-mccartney I'm glad my voice didn't completely shatter on that song!

My personal favorite was, of course, "The Ocean" - with a shout-out to Sisterbug in the spot where Robert Plant always used to shout out his daughter Carmen. heart

Sound was a little rough in the beginning, but improved greatly as the set went on. Hope you are able to post some songs on your channel. Must feel weird/good to think people all over the world grooved to The Offbeats today.a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Damn, so disappointed I missed this a-hard-days-night-paul-10, sorry BB, I tuned in late and then had to take a crash-course in remedial Zoom stuff (incomplete); and then @montyclift phoned and we wound up conversing for a coupla hours (touching on such subjects as "Is Aftermath the Stones' Revolver , or their Rubber Soul ?") Hope I'll get another chance to see your band, and hear you singing to that ocean! heart

Now playing Supertramp, "Even in the Quietest Moments" LP

That's okay @vonbontee I understand. We had some tech issues anyway, apparently the audio wasn't good. It was being recorded so maybe it'll be on YouTube at some point, and we'll probably try to to do this again, in which case I'll let y'all know.

Currently listening to birthday girl

Kate made some spectacular videos to accompany her singles, as well. A multitalented lady!

Entertaining family now; playing a collection of Motown singles. In fact, yeah.

Listening to some primo jazz-fusion, Sonny Sharrock's "Seize the Rainbow" LP, wherein the pioneering free-jazz guitar veteran fronts a rhythm trio (with two drummers) for the most accessible, most semi-conventionally hardrocking album of his career. Loud and noisy, but also melodic and beautiful in it's way. Highly recommended to Jules, QMan, SWR, and maybe Beatlebug would like it too! john-lennon-salute_gif

Dedicated to @Beatlebug. Your city is all over the news tonight as in Category 1. Stay safe and please avoid doing what this song suggests. For sure, let the berries sleep on the porch tonight. a-hard-days-night-george-10

You mean my state? ahdn_george_01 I hope I've not publicly disclosed my city on this Forum or the internet in general, don't wanna dox myself a-hard-days-night-paul-4 anyway, I live on top of a mild hill, so we were fine. It was very atmospherically rainy, though, and today it was very "Sky cleared up, day turned to bright, closing both eyes now the head filled with light" beautiful. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Oh man that's a good song. I've not heard the album but I went on a song kick last year sometime and I'm afraid if I listen to it now I shall die of nostalgia - it's already such a nostalgic-sounding song. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Right now I'm listening to "Helplessly Hoping" by CSN... again heart
