    Even though I've heard a million times, it still makes me stop what I'm doing and pay attention.
  • Can't. Believe. I. Forgot. Mississippi Queen.

    Also, I have an affinity for David Bowie's  Fame.

    Great songs! But I'm pretty sure Mississippi Queen is Dino...? I'd be surprised if it wasn't.

    Drive is one of my favorite Cars tracks and Orr made it classic.

    Not a Cars track, but one I always turn up is Green Onions by Booker T. and the MGs.
    I think sometimes if you try to play too technically, you lose something in the music - like you're playing for another guitar player. I like to play for people. The more sophisticated and mature guitarists become, the more they go with the feel.

    If Mountain isn't Dino, we need to reassess our definition :wink:

    Could be considered Dino, but I with "Lunatic Fringe" by Red Rider.

    The bass player for Red Rider was Jeff Jones...who was replaced in his first band by Geddy Lee.

    That band was Rush. And when Rush was a four piece, the other guitarist was Lindy Young. You may not have heard of him, but Geddy married his sister.

    Basically, my point is -- Geddy rules.

    There are a lot of other really rad songs I like that really aren't Dino.  Surprise:  they are mostly old-school country and the redneck '70's Austin scene.  Because let's face it:  you can't miss it in Texas.  Now, I don't like the practice of passing off rock pablum as country by sticking a singer with a southern accent on top of it.  That's not the real thing.  That's like taking grunge and trying to pass it off as punk by putting a fake British accent on it (I'm talking to you, Billie Joe Armstrong).  It has to have steel guitars and fiddles in it for me.  And don't go telling me someone like Shania Twain is country, she's pop.  She was married to a man who produced "Hysteria" for god's sake (though to his credit, he did produce "Back in Black" as well, but my point is that's as country as, well nothing).

    The other non-Dino stuff I like is stuff like Simon and Garfunkel and lots of '70's pop like Elton John.  Part of that is having issues with my fingernails getting bent back at work for the last 12 months or so and being virtually unable to bend strings because I had to clip them back absurdly short, leading to nearly a year confined to playing piano.
  • This is one of my favourite songs ever:
