      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

my choice should be perfectly obvious, given my posting of a few minutes ago. technical brilliance is one thing, but singing / songwriting and a real soul count as much or more, so far as I'm concerned.

 

Mark Knopfler.

I've been listening to Kill To Get Crimson lately, some really great stuff in there. "Punish The Monkey" is a brilliant song.

They played Sultans the other night, but I wish you could have seen Telegraph Road!

 

It started off as one of those meandering intros, where you don't know what the song is. Knopfler was playing his National, rhythm mostly, and Bennett (his second) was playing lead on a strat. It was a perfect combination of piano, organ, the guitars. bliss actually.

 

then it turned into Telegraph Road, and they just kept building it up. Mark switched over to his Pensa, and took over lead. The song went on for a long time and kept getting bigger and then smaller. It was incredible. Best song of the night.

 

I know, i'm just like a little girl squealing over a pony. Cut me some slack....

Hard to beat Texas Flood. I remember the day he died, no one knew for a while whether it was his or Eric Clapton's helicopter that had gone down. It was going to be horrible either way. Then we found out. What a tragedy.

Agreed. A lot of Knopfler records take a few listenings to appreciate the depth. I didn't really like 'Kill' until I had heard it a few times. The same is true of his first solo album.

Me too. I was driving back with a Fed. Survey crew from a days work in the Mountain Loop Forest when I heard the news. Sad day...

Joe Perry of Aerosmith - love the style he plays, interesting slides and stuff with cool melodies and rythm. You dot realize just how good he is until you try to play one of his solos!
