    I certainly don't get this sort of stuff, but each person has their own taste, and it would be pretty boring if everyone liked the same things.

    However, have a look/listen to the clips recommended above, then have a look at the Jeff Beck concert in another recent PETT thread, and the Jimi Hendrix clip in post 23: I'll leave it to you to think about who has real talent and whose music people will be listening to in 20 years' time....

      seriously, are we being trolled here? It's like someone saying that pro wrestling is "real". Is there really a comparison of the talent level of these metal guys to Beck, Clapton or hendrix ?

          I'm sure my parents had similar thoughts about Cream & Hendrix when my brother was blasting it up in his bedroom back in the day.

          Despite my lack of understanding the allure of the metal/rock genre, there are some extremely talented musicians making this music. In the end, it's all art - just vastly different styles. I whole-heartedly agree that if we all had the same tastes, the world would be a very boring place. Now, if I could just get the punk in the car next to me to roll up his windows and stop "sharing" his music with me, that might make the world a little better....

            Absolutely! Devin Townsend is a genius.

              I haven't gotten much exposure to Devin's newer stuff, but man do I remember breaking my neck to SYL's 1997 "City". Even to this day, it sounds absolutely killer. O.M. F.G. says it all.

              That explains a lot. Not everyone can appreciate distortion together with discordance. Takes a very specific set of ears and noggin..

                Queue up Transcendence . . . absolutely amazing. I get goosebumps with every listen.

                  And despite his being gone for almost 50 years, we do still keep getting "more" - another album is due out next month.

                  Yes, you and I both know it. Incredible how fast his fingers could move. I was listening to that way back in 1974, when I bought the album.

                        The first thing he did was convince me that he's an arrogant *******. "Look at me!! Who doesn't want to do this!?"

                        I like heavy rock and even some metal, but this is too much. Just sounds like noise.

                          Where is the band?
                          Guess xmax's age.

                          My guess: 15. His grammar is passable. His trolling is good.

                            On the floor in front of him and behind him next to his amp.

                            EMG does that with lots of artists.

                              In 20 years, when I'm 80, I'll still find Hevy Devy far more entertaining than I ever found "slow hand" to be.

                              Jeff Beck on the other hand, now THAT'S a guitar player.

                              But Devy writes great stuff . . . and what a voice.
