    What’s sad, but still brings me hope, is that someone that has very odd names for beers, and is MN-aware (Clown Shoes!) would do that.

    Ok, I guess I didn’t read your original post that way – and I am not going to pretend I am not biased considering I live about 2.1 miles from the house he grew up in. His parents sold the house to my aunt and uncle and there are some pretty close connections. I grew up with autographed pictures of him laying around in my grandma’s basement and saw boxes of his stuff that was left behind. My cousin’s bedroom had RZ carved into the wood on the wall. My family has a great appreciation for him but nobody would pretend he wasn’t different. Heck, if he walked into a room of people in 2016 and they didn’t know him, most would say the same. The point I am trying to make is he would have likely had a similar experience growing up anywhere in MN at the time, it just happened to be on the Iron Range. Maybe Minneapolis would have been a better fit but I doubt even St Paul would have been much better in the 40’s and 50’s for someone as eccentric as Dylan.

    That is hilarious. He got the same reaction 60 years ago on the stage at HHS. See Rube, even LA thinks he is nuts. :lol:

    But yes, he has softened some. I know he was back here not to long ago checking out the town with family. It is too bad it wasn’t different for him growing up but that is what made him who he is.

    Hell he got booed when he first plugged in back in what – 1964? – all the pure folkies who loved him in the coffee shops of NY couldn’t accept he had gone electric. He’s been getting under audiences skin since he started pissing off his neighbors and fellow students in Hibbing! Guy hasn’t changed.

    This. This is why I mentioned him “vs” Prince in the first place. He had the ear of a whole generation, and it was more than music. Frankly, if it was only music, I think Prince buries Dylan, and I love me some Dylan.

    I think they both had their place in time. Dylan’s strength were his lyrics at a time when people just did nor question authority much – or if they did paid a heavy price – see Selma.

    Prince a totally different time – different message. I wouldn’t choose which is the better. Different but powerful.

    The passing of Prince is one of the rare times that someone you saw up close a few times but never new personally hits you like a ton of bricks. There are not many artists that conjure up more than one lasting memory of your youth, Prince conjures up several.

    My brother of all people who was just as likely to blast Van Halen or Skynyrd in the stereo played Controversy for me the first time (maybe it was even [gasp] Dirty Mind) and from there I never stopped being a fan. Learning the lyrics to DMSR, sitting up at night hoping to hear Little Red Corvette on MTV, Purple Rain being the soundtrack of an entire summer and the following school year, Diamonds and Pearls coming out the October of the Twins last WS, asking those around you were watching with, “WTF – was that the greatest half time show ever?”…

    I knew Prince was huge but the sentiment that’s been expressed by so many since his announced death has blown me away. I was really mad at myself that the flash drive in my car full of thousands of songs didn’t have any Prince on it and instead all his stuff was at the house. That changed pretty quickly today.

    Thanks Prince for so many memories!

    btw I can’t believe he’d allow a video this bad to be released, but if you watch this all the way through andI still can’t agree he can shred better than most I don’t know what to say: http://videos.sapo.pt/qm89J3ECVgZzl2Od82Pr

    The thing that makes a talent sui generis is that he brings to the world something original and never done before. Dylan and Prince both can make that claim, and in that way they are alike.

    As for Dylan growing up on the range, why not just listen to what he himself has to say about that? He wasn’t being critical when he said (paraphrasing), “There was nothing for me there…I went to New York because I was going to my destiny.” Almost like that scene in Superman, when the high school Clark Kent knew he had to leave Smallville, Kansas, because his destiny awaited him someplace else.

    All of these videos surfacing of Prince have been fantastic to watch. That link to Cream in the Pet Peeves thread is fantastic. I also saw a couple of FB shares, including his original performance of Purple Rain at First Ave, that I just haven’t been able to stop listening to

    I thought it was interesting when this came my way. I’d say hit or miss. I’ve only listened to half of it, but I thought the cover of “Pop Life” was good.

    Here’s some German goth rock from 1985. It’s Marquee Moon’s “Prince of Darkness,” posted just a little after midnight: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HaGkw1gi-2A

    Apologies if this has been talked about already. Thoughts on disturbed’s Simon and garfunkel cover of The Sound of Silence?? I’m a big metal fan, not a big disturbed fan, but this cover is a 10. Disturbed always seemed a little juvenile and meat-headish to me but maybe I should delve deeper.
    Also, I laugh thinking about will Ferrell knocking children out of the way after shooting himself with a tranq gun in Old School, falling into a pool, and this song immediately strikes up.

    I agree it’s awesome! I’ve been hearing it for a few weeks and love it!! :dup: The first time I heard it, I knew I recognized the song, but couldn’t place who sang the original. I was kinda shocked when I realized it was Simon & Garfunkel. :shock:

    Like everyone else I’ve been listening to some Prince since he passed. I knew he was a good guitar player but I guess I never realized he was that good. He’s top 10 in my book.

    I’d consider myself a fan of Disturbed and I am totally in liven with the Sound of Silence cover. The lead singer absolutely kills it. The performance they had on Conan was absolutely brilliant.

    I hate the Disturbed cover, and I like Disturbed. There are parts where he completely overdoes it, and it’s horrid. I love the concept, but the execution? I’m all for executing this song.

    I can tolerate most music. Even if I would not go out of my way to listen to it. Screaming death metal and most rap are the only two music styles I truly do not like.

    Classical (minus a few select pieces) and country after 1985 or so (minus a few select pieces) are about the only things I can’t stand.

    Been there. But I dislike smoky beer. Can’t recall the music selection at the time however.

    And good. More fodder for the DT musicbox!

    You will love their chocolate stout that is coming out within the week. My God it’s amazing. But their music is either RAWR or folk. Never know which until you get there.

    How can you not like classical? Any of Chopin’s Nocturnes (I like #2 the best), the third and fourth movements of Beethoven’s 9th. I used to listen to classical all the time when I was doing homework back in college. I try to now at work when I want to relax between meetings and whatnot.

    I just didn’t get into it. Beethoven’s Fifth, duh. That’s the only one I know by name without hearing. Four Seasons? Right? I could name that one when hearing it. I’m familiar with the tunes, but just not into it.

    I like lighter, fruity beers. Usually they are wheat, saison, or sours. Love stuff with pepper. There is a pepper cider in Tampa I would kill to ship up here, but alas they wouldn’t growler it for whatever reason. Stouts, porters, and pretty much anything that tastes hoppy is a no go for me.
    Guess I didn’t realize the magnifico was classified as a stout, but then again I’m not very knowledgeable about beer. Much to the dismay of the homebrewer in the house.

    The Hammerheart Choc Stout is chocolate. All the chocolate. Better than Boulder Shake Porter. By far. Did I mention it’s chocolate?

    A) it’s a stout.
    B) chocolate in liquid form :puke:

    Yes I’m weird. Chocolate cake – yes. Chocolate frosting – no. Brownies, fudge, candy/candy bars – yes. Chocolate ice cream, milk, mousse, pudding, syrup – yuck.
    Explain that one to me!

    I’ve got a great collection of Beethoven’s Symphonies. Admittedly, the only ones I really listen to are the 5th and 9th.

    Every time I hear the end of the 9th, I get flashbacks to the end of Immortal Beloved with him running through the woods to the lake.

    EDIT: Not sure I was around at the B1G Mistake TG at the time Cowgirl played it, but just played the Disturbed cover… very well done. Maybe a little harsh toward the end, but it works.

    That was pretty much the harshness I noted too, but personally, I think it works. The original wasn’t quite like that, but even Paul and Art put a bit more edge in their voices during that portion, just nowhere near as much.

    I can definitely see why it would bug you, though.

    If Prince was still alive, these videos wouldn’t be circulating. He may not have had a will but he had plenty of attorneys protecting his creative output.
