I was too young to see 'em when they were at the top of their game (early/mid '70's), and when I first saw them circa '77/'78 on the Works tour - right after they'd had to drop their private touring symphony orchestra due to the exorbitant costs - it was still a spectacle, and probably the greatest live show I've ever seen in terms of pure musicianship. With Rush, Deep Purple and Led Zep included BTW. Only wish I'd caught them on their KarnEvil9 tour before they went in hiatus for a few years Ö polyphonic sound, CP's rotating two-ton stainless steel kit, KE's piano solo with the piano turning end-over-end, rear video projections, etc. Stuff no one else had ever done before. You can see bits of some of the best of that tour from their '74 CalJam headlining performance live on ABC TV in front of 250,000 spectators. ELP knew how to do big, in a HUGE way. Then punk came in to cripple them and their fellow travelers, and after that, time and MTV put the kill shot on them and their kind. Hard to believe a band of their significance at the time - basically a prog band that sold out stadiums - has been all but forgotten in the present day.

Anyway Snives, here's a link to one of CP's recent tours, showing him with a relatively modest and restrained 5-plus minute solo, finishing up with his current bandmates in their version of "Fanfare for the Common Man", with the guitarist basically recreating KE's right-handed keyboard bits, whilst the bassist does a combination of Greg Lake's bassline and KE's rhythmic left hand!! :)

For 'dc, you've likely seen this before, but here's 3 minutes with sticks and snare only, plus tricks galore.

oh, boy, I think that punk music began before ELP, maybe with ? and the Mysterians and their hit "96 Tears" on 26 October 1966 (its 53rd anniversary was this week :)). But, no question that ELP had orders of magnitude more traction than ?, as much as I loved 96 Tears.

I was fortunate to have seen ELP on Thanksgiving day in 1973. I have also had the pleasure of seeing Carl Palmer a couple of times recently. Full of energy and very talented couple of fellows accompanying him. The Flying Monkey is a great place to see a show, especially up close on the main floor. Saw Lez Zeppelin there a couple of years ago. Yes, you read that right, all girls all zeppelin.

Chuck, I donít know how anybody can hate baseball. As much as I like hockey, it will always take a second seat the national Pastime.

Also saw this version of his tour at Mohegan Sun last year, Palmer still has it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yI03yUkVSNE

Greg, the game has tested me to my limits, and it broke me last night. And like you, I LOVED baseball.

No kidding, eh? :eek: Gotta check that out Ö however, I bet Percy Plant still had the better hair. :D

'Satch, I guess you're OK in my book after all. ELP fan far outweighs the Yale/New Haven thing. :)

Chuck, how many times have you seen Rush? I'm lucky to have seen them once, Counterparts tour, although at that age I really didn't appreciate what I was seeing... like several other shows I had been to at an early age. Many of them I was there to see opening bands for the big acts... and yes I'll accept the flak I receive for this... Candlebox opening for Rush... Ugly Kid Joe for Ozzy Osbourne (go easy on me). By night's end I was blown away by the bigger acts at least so I have that going for me.

Now my kids are piling up a good list of shows attended already at a young age and I personally couldn't be more happier to take them! And they have pretty good taste in music, admittedly.

Probably seen Rush over a dozen times, but a lot of that was late '70's through the mid-'80's, maybe the last time (so far?) was in the '90's. Didn't like their direction in the late '80's so we went our separate ways for awhile. I still think their peak was probably Moving Pictures, and after that Signals was decent as was Grace and Power Windows but like UNH Hockey started to slide slowly after 2003, Rush had a slide after Moving Pictures. Everything between 2112 and Moving Pictures is indispensable Rush IMO. But as a live act, they've always been worth it, they've never ignored their prime stuff, even when they were selling subpar music later on. And now they don't have to worry about selling Roll the Bones crap.

I had tickets to see Ozzy on the tour when Randy Rhodes got killed a few days earlier in an airplane crash. Something came up, had to miss it (saw him once before with the original Sabbath), always wished I'd seen that one. Actually came to enjoy the Dio version of Sabbath for a few years while that lasted, too. Good times. :)

Does anyone have suggestions in how to stream NESN for the hockey game since I don't live in the local NESN market?

Canít be done. You need a home cable/satellite subscription that has NESN in order to validate that youíre a customer. To the best of my knowledge, anyway

So much to say re: the Toronto trio, but it will have to wait until tomorrow. Suffice it to say Rush was MY ELP.

For now, itís time to crush BC

True, however, if you have or have access to log-in information you can download the NESN app and stream HE games being broadcast on either NESN or NESN-plus...
