Perhaps it's my half-hearted attempt at a mid-life crisis but I've been hooked on 80's music lately.

My dad had an old reel-to-reel player. I'm trying to find someone who can (affordably :-) ) transfer or play his nearly YEARS of tape...

Hey, 80s music isn't bad. Just like any decade there was a lot of crap but also a lot of really good music being made as well.

Going to be seeing the worst band in the world according to Chiefsplanet next month.

So I try to work in their albums from start to finish before I do.

Pearl Jam.

Missoula. Playing in the outdoor football stadium at UM.

Should be an amazing setting.

Yes. The fifties to the end of the nineties has a lot of great stuff in it. There's a lot of BS in it too. Even some of that's okay for sentimental reasons. After that most of it all sounds similar to what came before it, or is just so popish. I'm just gonna listen to what it was based off of instead of the carbon copied version

PJ's probably good after 2000ish. I just turned off my radio around then. I'm sure that they've really grown as musicians. Eddie's what I have issues with. We were gonna go see him years ago, but it was on the tour where he put the mic stand through the Bush mask. I was young enough to disagree with Bush, but I felt that was over the line, and so I decided not to go

I find modern British and American popular music and rock to be kind of droll but that doesn't mean that there isn't good music being made today. You just have to look for it and sift through some crap. It might even be made in a foreign country. Sweden's metal scene is the best it has ever been with Ghost and Sabaton leading the charge. Japan's underground pop and rock scene has seen a huge amount of creativity since 2010 with Babymetal being the most popular act but other groups like Band-Maid and Necronomidol gaining decent followings in the West.

Is the reel to reel working? if so its pretty easy to do it yourself.

Reel-to-reel tape deck with a pair of stereo output jacks can be connected to a computer or laptop for creating digital copies of the analog tapes on the reels. The connection takes a standard stereo cable and a Y-adapter that condenses the two stereo signals from the tape deck to a single stereo plug that can hook up to the recording jack on the PC or laptop. Many computers may already be installed with recording software. Free software such as the Audacity program can be downloaded from the Internet.

That's what basically it all came down to when pop took over around the turn of the century. Even college rock stations started playing top 40 pop because at the time that's what the kids were listening to. I just didn't want to have to search for music. I just started branching out my tastes to go more in depth with old hip hop, older metal. If I have to look it's going to be deeper into when music wasn't pop. Like last year as an example I really got into death and black metal, and thanks for mentioning some ideas as I'm gonn go check out Ghost now

Yeah, Ghost is good. Though I am kinda lukewarm about their latest release so far.

The few bands that I've gotten into over the past ten to fifteen years or so have been based on covers. That's what I did with Ghost a few minutes ago. I like too see how they interpret another band's material. Plus it's not easy to f**k up a cover. It can be done. I don't mind the Cure and I like Purple Haze, but they didn't go well together

Their covers tend to be pretty good. If You Have Ghost, I am a Marionette, Here Comes the Sun.

The only one I didn't like was Missionary Man.

Looks amazing. MT has to be an underrated backdrop to see an epic show like PJ. Enjoy brother.
