I posted this in Facebook, but I figured it should also share it here.
Controversial Opinion: The sound of a Hammond B3 organ is one of the cornerstones of Rock, especially Prog Rock. The sound fits magnificently with its Ethos. But the same Hammond B3 organ in Jazz sounds like the deaf church lady playing the 7th inning stretch in a baseball game somewhere in Oklahoma and it is missing 3 middle keys.
The opposite? Vibraphone. Anything played outside Jazz sounds like an ice cream truck recording on a stretched cassette tape. Lionel Hampton playing vibraphone? The stuff of gods.
Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack.
Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA.
I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed.
I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.
