:eek: Laminge, 34 grand, bloody hell mate, you got so much money you don't what do with it, send some my way pleeaasseee :D
I got most of my stuff from Garry also. I have an Alpine single CD deck, Alpine DD drive 6x9's, Alpine V12 AMP, 12" JL Audio Sub, and ****ty phillips speakers in the front, but they do the job. Not a bad sound for about $1,500...
CD's in the car at the moment, Dreamtheater, Dreamtheater, Dreamtheater, Dreamtheater, Metallica (sometimes, lost the plot), pearl jam, Live, Steve Vai, a bit of Malmsteen but not too much (all sounds the same after a few minutes), Joe Satriani, Led Zepplin, Gunners, and some Queensryche.
That's not music. I just happened to watch the Wizard of Oz the other day, on the projector, sound turned right down, with Pink Floyd's Dark side of the Moon playing in the background. There's a message there. Dont know what it is yet.??????????(lol)
Car music mmmm. depends on if I'm by myself or not, Delicate Sound of Thunder is good, if I'm cruising down the Hume. If the Wiff is with me, some Rock and Roll or Van Halen is good for the drums.
They have 19 tracks just for drums when recording:CraZ: He is truly amazing, along with the rest of the band. If anybody is into music and want to see some of the most technical, creative, original and inspirational (for muso's) progressive rock, I strongly suggest to check them out.
I don't know, its hard to say. But to get an Idea of what they were into when they started out, I have taken this quote from their Biography..
"The encore was indeed a work of genius; a medley of the instrumental breaks from classic songs from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Yes, Queen, The Beatles and Van Halen."
John Petrucci (Guitarist) influences :
Steve Vai, Al DiMeola, Alex Lifeson, Steve Howe, Alan Holdsworth and the late Stevie Ray Vaughan.
John Myung (Bassist) influences :
Chris Squire, Steve Harris and Geddy Lee and their respective bands Yes, Iron Maiden and Rush. He also listens to bands like Jane's Addiction, King's X and The Red Hot Chili Peppers as well as classical and blues.
Mike Portnoy (Drums) influences :
Rush drummer Neil Peart and the late Frank Zappa. Other favorites include drummers Terry Bozzio, Vinnie Colaiuta, Simon Philips, John Bonham and Keith Moon and bands such as The Beatles, Queen, Yes, Metallica, Jellyfish, Iron Maiden, U2 and Jane's Addiction.
Jordan Rudes (Keyboards) :
His biograpgy isn't as clear cut as the others (thats where I've been getting this stuff from :p), so I'll describe him, he grew up on Bach, Chopin, Beethoven, and has now seemlessly blended his classical style into progressive rock) AWESOME!
James LaBrie (Vocals) :
James' musical tastes are quite varied as he names Metallica, Aerosmith, Van Halen, Journey and Judas Priest as well as classical composers Mozart, Vivaldi and Beethoven as favorites. Influential vocalists include Steve Perry (formerly of Journey), Freddie Mercury, Sting, Paul Rodgers and Nat King Cole. James continues to practice with Ms. Burns and encourages other vocalists to pursue formal training.
Well there you have it, should give you an idea of the band and their quality [wink2]. After my effort, I hope your gonna buy their CD's :D
Hmm, I can feel the heat rising and the flames beginning to warm me .. :wink2: :wink2:
Ok, my collection spans basically all genres except jazz and country. I can find no good in either of these :thumbdown :D I'm a bit partial to nostalgia (mid 80's and later). Big fan of INXS/U2/Simple Minds/Noiseworks/EARLY Gunners/Pink Floyd and the like. Huge fan of early to mid 90's (also known as the "high school years"). Seem to have grown out of the metal/punk/industrial/thrash/grind/speedcore scenes... used to like the hard stuff, but eventually got bored with it :gok:
*dons flameproof Y-fronts* :eek:
Currently listening to the traditionally hated genres of hiphop and electronic. In the stacker - Beastie Boys, Black Eyed Peas, old school Run DMC, anything by Renaissance/Ministry of Sound/Gatecrasher, and for old times sake, a couple of compilation shockers from the early 90's (100% Hits 1992 etc.) lol :thumbup: :wink2:
*considers removing flameproofing but thinks the better of it* :damack:
It all just depends on the mood I'm in, and what sort of company I'm keeping in the veehickle.
