For years I was never that big of a Doors fan. Oddly they started to grow on me, heard this on the way home.

Chicago's finest . . .

Steve Goodman, who wrote City of New Orleans . . .



and John Prine, with his good friend Steve Goodman . . .



I see Prine whenever I get the chance and the ticket price isn't too high. I saw him the Saturday before the 2016 debacle, er, election.

more of Chicago's finest, this time some of the best of soul and blues:

Syl Johnson (he doesn't perform much anymore; he made a ton of money off samples of his music, e.g.,Wu-Tang Clan)



Jimmy Johnson (one of Syl's brothers, the other is Mack Thompson, a blues bass player)



Otis Clay (I was lucky enough to see one of his last performances before his sudden death)



J.B. Hutto



Magic Sam

Yesteday I saw one of my favourite bands, Mastodon, perform live in Tel Aviv, been waiting for it for like... 8 years.
I see Mastodon as the best rock or metal band of the current generatio, and by "genetaion" I mean "band's that released their debut album in the 2000s". I actually think that Mastodon are like the perfect gateway band into Metal for non-Metalhead people (or people who like metal but only the basic stuff like Sbbath, Maiden and Metallica). They are extreme, proggressive and somehow also catchy and easy on the ear all at the same same time.

If you want to give a listen, first I'd recommend you to start of with their 5th Album "The Hunter" and their 6th album "Once More 'Round the Sun" (my personal favourite of the band's ctalouge) - they're the most melodic, catchy and mainsteam appealing albums the abnd has produced, without sacrificing their unique sound. Specific reccomended songs on both albums are "Black Tongue", "Curl of the Burl", "Dry Bone Valley", "All the Heavy Lifting", "Spectrelight", "Octopus Has no Friends", "Creature Lives", "Tread Lightly", "Chimes at Midnight", "Asleep in the Deep", "The Motherload" and "Ember City".



Level 2 is Mastodon's two biggest "proggy" outings, that would make any King Crimson lover fell at home. These include the band's latest full-length album "Emperor of Sand" and 2009's "Crack the Skye", wildley concidered by fans as the band's magnum opus. Recommended songs from these to would be "Jaguar God", "Show Yourself", "Precious Stones", "Steambreather", "Ancient Kingdom", "Oblivion" (probably the band's biggest commercial hit), "Divinations", "Quintessence", "Crack the Skye" and their two 10+ proggressive pieces, "The Czar" and "The Last Baron".



Level 3 will be just the album "Blood Mountain" on it's own. If you've passed the levels 2 and 3, than these album would be the intermediary between the more proggy and/or ctachy stuff and the really heavy stuff. It has some extreme moments, but also has lots of melody and heart. Reccomended songs from this album would be "Sleeping Giant" (my favourite song by them), "Colony of Birchmen" (a song that features Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme), and the 3 super havey songs in "The Wolf is Lose", "Crystal Skull" and "Capillarian Crest".


The 4th and final level would be the band's first to albums, which are also their most heavy, extreme and harshly vocaled, with no mainstream appeal whatsoever. Still, both of them have jems. These ainclude tha band's debut, "Remission" and their breakout sophomore effort "Leaviathan", a concept album inspired by Herman Mellville's "Moby Dick". Recommended songs from these two would be "Crusher Destroyer" (REALLY HEAVY), "March of the Fire Ants", "Mother Puncher", "Ole' Nessie", "Blood and Thunder' (the band's signature track, serves as the closing song in all of their live shows), "Iron Tusk", "I Am Ahab", "Seabeast", "Megalodon", and "Joseph Merrick".

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.

I've always been a huge Mastadon fan. I didn't really start getting into their music until "The Hunter" came out when i was in high school, but it prompted me to investigate their back catalog. My oh my, what a gold mine it was. I still think that "Crak The Skye" is their best.

Yeah, came late to Mastadon myself. They have some weird influences...King Crimson, Genesis during their weird-ass stage with Peter Gabriel....
They run the gamut which is why I like them. Very talented musicians.
