Yassss, love another Disturbed fan. SOAD is pretty damn good too, love BYOB and have no qualms with blasting that at full volume. 

SOAD just released 2 more songs to support the situation over in Armenia. 

You ever hear any of their side projects?   Serj's solo music is also really good and Daron's band Scars on Broadway rocks.

You see them at George Mason?   I wanted to go to that show, but picked Hershey instead on that tour.  Cool thing was that they played Eulogy for the first time in 15 years....since it was on or right after Chris Cornell's funeral. 

No. Saw them at Verizon. This was back a long time ago. It was the only time they played in DC?  I think?  It was the 10,000 days tour 

 

just one of those bands that can sound the same live and on the album. It was the best.

Both are great bands.  My fave is Tool.  Saw them 2x in the past 3 years and they were one of the cancelled shows.  

They are amazing live and I'd strongly encourage everyone to go see them if you get a chance to see them. 

Thanks!

No but I’ll check them out, love finding new bands to listen to, thanks!

I saw Disturbed a few years back, when we could still go to concerts, and they sang their cover of this song. I would have enjoyed it a lot more had they included the lines about snow weenies and weather models. 

Hey a little love for Simon and Garfunkel please. It was their creation.

I do like the disturbed version though.

I’m so mad I was out earlier for hard rock / metal talk. Let’s go! Huge fan of things metal. Iron Maiden / Judas Priest / Black Sabbath is how it starts, but man way too many more to list. Crue?? Hell yes! Winger though?? :yikes: LOL. Fine. I have the first 2 Wingers albums. SOAD-not my jam. Love Disturbed though. I saw mention of Tool. They were my last concert pre-Covid. I love music as much as weather and beer. Not sure the order though. Family first though. Always. 
 

And damn it better snow next week! This fridge can’t drink itself!! Someone come over and I’ll share my last Coke Zero. :lol:

Tool is awesome. Schism is one of my all time favorite prog rock songs.

Both songs are very good, and raise awareness.

Let’s not forget a perfect circle. Tool is great, but a perfect circle also had some good stuff. 

Inoculum is fricking amazing. \m/

Anyway Perfect Circle is good, but when I’m listening to them, I always find myself wishing it was Tool. Lol

Having a night of memories. All these dud winters just reinforce the fact that we got THREE major snowstorms in the winter of 2009/2010 is just UNREAL! It gets talked about a lot in weather communities but still not enough. 

It absolutely kills me that I was a teenager when that happened and didn't appreciate it for the scope of what it was. I loved it, don't get me wrong. Was thrilled to be off school and all that crap. Compared to now though? I journal every weather events we get that's substantial in the slightest. I take pictures like crazy. I didn't even take pictures during or after that historic week in February. I left myself nothing to spark the memories. 

Sure, I can go online and find pictures and videos from around town but it's not the same as your own. You don't understand, or you guys probably do, how much I would have written about that if it happened just a few years later. That winter, but especially that week in February is something that this area will likely NEVER experience again, definitely not in my lifetime, unless the unprecedented happens. It's a one time shot at capturing it. It's honestly one of my biggest regrets of my life to this point. I know that sounds overdramatic, but it's the truth. 

I have people tell me, "Just go to somewhere that gets insane amounts of snow, then you can experience it." They don't understand. What made it so special and spectacular is that it happened in this area. The fact that it's something that will very likely never happen again. I'm thrilled I got the chance to live through that. I just wish I would've done more with it. 

How's that for banter?

I know...the number of timing changes they make int hat song is crazy.  I'm assuming that you have seen the video of Danny Carey playing Pneuma Live in Concert?

FI was an amazing Album.  I remember the goosebumps I got listening to it the first time at 5:00 am on the day it came out.  I went to ta2 targets and got the last copy of the CD they had in stock....they only had 2 and I was there with another guy looking for it.  

 

APC is also amazing.  A different side of Maynard, but the ensemble cast is great. 

 

Pushier is more eclectic, but a good listen too. 

I love Maiden and Priest too.  Never seen them, but Both Rob Halford and Bruce Dickinson are probably two of the best rock vocalists ever.
