One of the best concerts I ever went to and I nearly walked out.Ticket said show started at 9,I got there at 8,band didn’t come on until 10.Bought a Rolling Rock beer (only one I ever drank in my life)and went and stood at the front of the stage in the empty theater just sipping it.Convinced myself to stay and was treated to a party I'll never forget.Bootsy's solo with the Starbass quadriphonic sound swirling around the hall playing a gorgeous melodic line brought tears to my eyes,a feat only matched by seeing Tony Levin play his composition 'Utopia' with his own band(what is it with bass players anyway?They move me.).Bootsy went to hand a rose to someone behind me but I figured,I've waited here long enough,so I went for it.Great show!

Here's one I consider a classic;it's by a band featuring Bill Laswell called Material and is named 'Seven Souls'.Over a bed of Indian music (Eastern, not the Native American kind) it features spoken word pieces by William S. Burroughs concerning Egyptian mythology/religion and the nature of the atom bomb as a "soul killer".If that sounds interesting to you, check it out,it's killer.I recommend the Triloka Records 1997 reissue as the dialogue is reprinted in the liner notes and has some added remixes.Some of you Sopranos fans might recognize some of this music was used as the opening music in season six.
