  1. I remember so clearly when I bought "The Wall" on cassette tape in the 6th grade and there were many older guys who told me: that album has disco songs on it, man, Pink Floyd sold out, don't listen to that, listen to "Animals" and "Dark Side of the Moon." I did hear the disco beat on the big hit on closer listen but loved it anyway. I wore that damn tape out or was it two tapes, I don't remember. Probably two tapes since the album was so long. The biggest disappointment was how lame the next album was compared to the pinnacle that was "The Wall."

    There were many people at the time who listened to both the Bee Gees and Pink Floyd but if they did, they were not considered cool. Disco or Rock, you had a choice to make and there would be no fusion between the two. The two genres are very much opposed philosophically: Rock is rebel music and always was, an expression of a certain individualistic go-your-own-way attitude and originally, before they dropped the 'roll' for those who couldn't dance worth a shit, rock'n'roll had plenty of dancing attached leading up to the sexual intercourse it symbolized and was an aid and potential aphrodisiac to whereas Disco originally came from the gay clubs and was mainly about pure hedonism and little else. It made a point of confusing freedom and hedonism which was a good dumbing-down mechanism capitalized on fully by the powers-that-be. If only the rockers had studied a few simple James-Brown moves and kept up their dancing skills and not disappointed the always-happy-to-dance women, none of this disco crap would have happened. Rock would simply have gotten more funky but never four beats to the bass. Still, the Bee Gees were head-&-shoulders above the rest in the disco field, having come from the rock and pop disciplines. I wish most of this hip-hop garbage would die a similar death to disco but like an eternal zombie it keeps going and going and going, even after 25 years.

    Anyway, long live Elvis Costello (creator of one of my favorite albums "Get Happy!") and Roger Waters and Siouxsie Sioux and Annie Lennox and Carlos Santana and Stewart Copeland and any other artist who has flipped the finger to Israel and its bloodthirsty policies. And shame on Ian Anderson for playing there without taking a stand and therefore giving his very loud concert-pa-blasted symbolic consent to what goes on there, far worse than anything that went on in South Africa. Of course, his excuse, if he had any, would be, 'its' not the people, it's the leaders, I'm performing for the people' and yet it is these same people, of whom an estimated 93% were cheering for the bombardment of thousands of Palestinians in return for less than a handful Jews supposedly killed. IF these kinds of people want the fruits of civilization or even a justified rebellion against a civilization crumbling which Tull once represented, they should learn to act civilized or suffer the consequences.

  2. I liked the Bee Gees actually... and yep, until recently, i felt goofy about it. My all time favorite, which i am nearly certain is about the Jews... is this song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSFF5PveANo

    By the cutest Gibb brother. Correction... the only cute Gibb brother... :)

  3. Great song. Nothing against the Bee Gees. A little wimpy for male teenagers trying to prove themselves as 'men,' that's all. And that's what I was at the time, just a teenager with a thousand insecurities who had yet to learn that without suffering there is no birth. Learning that lesson too well is not good either because then you become a self-destructive masochist. All 'good' music is intuitive philosophy leading you down a certain path of ritual, rite, 'right,' spi-rite and finally spi-ritual (most religions being co-options of that true path). This is why Marijuana slows people down and makes them reflect on all the everyday rituals they take for granted, since without proper ritual there is no real spirituality and without spirituality there is no creativity. That's why for anyone seeking truth to still be monetarily motivated rather than spiritually motivated is absurd. There can be no compromise on the spiritual side, the side that says 2+2=4 and not 5 while not ignoring synergetic phenomena.
