Re: RIP David Bowie

I usually don't participate on these RIP threads, but Bowie and his music mean very much to me. Hearing the news about his death was a complete shock, also a weird feeling like it was a relative who had died. My favourite Bowie track is "Word on a Wing", followed by "Ashes to Ashes" and "Heroes". Th...

It's Personal - redesign

Just for fun I made this redesign of IP, with Queen album "Hot Space" little in mind. I took the liberty to change the order of the faces, following the same principle as The Beatles "Let It Be"; with the most prominent songwriters on upper deck. Moving Max to right and putting Mike on lower deck, a...

Yeah, and 5705 had only become a minor hit then! :lol:

Where is Geir, we need to straighten up this topic again! :lol:

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

Besides the bonus tracks (which on the other hand, have been long available for us in the vault), I think the liner notes with Chris and Mike participating, is the biggest contribution for this reissue. There are some tidbits, that at least I didn't know about, such as considering bandnames "Sons of...

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

Remember back when John accused Paul of only writing "silly love songs"? Well, it wasn't John who penned Helter Skelter. No one can with even the best of intentions call that a love song. That must have been the closest thing to punk 8 years before anyone even had a clue about the concept. And Stev...

Re: The first four albums: New reissues due in July.

remarkable... imho the last two albums, without Chris and Steve, are the least progressive of all seven... Exactly what I was going to say! Especially "HAR", featuring tracks like "Speechless" and "You're Leaving Me" which are even timeless I think, and could have been written for any of those boy ...

Re: Road music a k a history repeats itself.

A question that I posed regarding a detail in a picture posted on the Facebook group, also went by pretty much undebated, which is precisely the sort of thing I could've seen us discussing here at the board in the old days. While it won't bring back those days – life goes on, after all – I probably...

Re: New material from ABBA-Agnetha

As the big Abba fan I am, it's so good to see Agnetha back in business. She now seems very relaxed and comfortable with media too.

Glad you pay attention to her comeback at this forum, Robin!
