No I haven;t, honest! :)

As soon as you said not rock... I mean, Buddy Rich is both a MONUMENTAL cunt and drummer in equal parts.

Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I'd rather see a bad Rolling Stones show than any by Zep.
And I've seen them both, multiple times.

Denmark was home to two important live debuts: Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple. A whole book is out now on the Led Zeppelin concert in 68, and the first ones following that. Richly illustrated with rare photos, but the text is in Danish.
