Sites to See

Obligatory links page?  Sure, but this is a good way to share a lot of the things I am interested in without having to spend a lot of time sharing, writing, etc.  It also has the side benefit of demonstrating how lazy I can be.  

There is a lot of stuff here, please scroll down through the headers... most of it is either TONS of fun or highly recommended (by me).

Recently Noteworthy

Spring has gotten my interest in bicycling on the plate again.  Been riding once or twice a week, occasionally as much as 35 to 40 miles!

Favorite Music/Artists

Though clearly not all of my favorites, this is a good representation of my current, yet ever changing thinking and preferences in music.

Warren Zevon
What can I say?  Warren and Stan somehow evolved as my favorites.  If you haven't heard Warren lately, you have got to check out Mr. Bad Example and Life'll Kill Ya.

Stan Ridgway
It is hard not to be a fan of the legendary story teller - you may vaguely remember his distinctive voice on Mexican Radio by Wall of Voodoo

Roger Waters
Founder, writer, singer, and bass player for Pink Floyd

Simply the finest hard rock band in existence - and a very cool web site with lots of links

Along with Hum, some of the finest music to evolve in the 1990s

Along with Radiohead, some of the finest music to coalesce in the 1990s.

Pink Floyd
A good starting point for Floyd info on the web, but not very much of it is anything beyond fan site (so far)

Tori Amos
Note much of a web site so far...

Hidden In Plain View

Check out my nephew's band's web site!!  His name is Joe Reo, the band is called Hidden in Plain View.   MP3s to download and listen to, lots of photos, links to reviews of their shows, show dates... what more could you ask for?  Go there now!

The Music of Yes

There are no bands that I would consider myself a fan of, I am certainly not a "fanatic".  But the music of Yes, in all their forms and permutations, has meant of great deal to me since I first bought the album Going for the One - by accident - in 1977.
