I'm trying to think of a single *known* musician that has come out of Colorado.

Anyone? :-?

I'd call that 'Funky House' HM, kinda quiet and very much high-hat.

I like mine to have a bit of a stomp about it.

Hear what you're saying.

Strictly speaking, I think to qualify for the definitive category of "Funky House", it has to have lots of 70's samples, disco melodies, and/or Superfly-style pimpiness...

However, most genres of House have "funky" tunes... That is: tunes that chicks will actually dance to.

I know from monotonous experience that Holywoman is always pressing me to play "funkier" tracks, whatever genres I'm fiddling around with (mostly Tech-, Electro-, Minimal-, Progressive- and Deep-House).

But I'm with you: I prefer tracks to have a thudding, driving bass-line, with more industrial-sounding synth-harmonies... Which are just about the only tunes that will get (straight) guys up and moving.

Not that I dance, being Ultra-straight and all that... But a good Men-Only mix is ideal for listening to whilst driving.

Something along these lines:

I just hope this counts toward the French suicide rate and not the U.S. suicide rate

Just saying... :>_

He was good in The Paradise Club.

I should try and track that down actually.

Can't say I paid much attention to him in Eastenders.

Matt "Guitar" Murphy dead at 88 :(

Not a big shot in the movie business but he could sure play a mean guitar. I will miss this character:

Here's a scene of him as the cook in the well known diner scene from the Blues Brothers.

I had a few of the Blues Brothers' live albums (potentially still do...).

Love Murphy's solos on those.

I see from Matt "Guitar" Murphy's obituary that he recorded two albums with Chuck Berry in the late 1950's.

Quite a legacy.

:(

Fox News Commentator and Pulitzer Prize Winner Charles Krauthammer has died.

He was ideologically liberal but would debate and oppose anyone otherwise in a respectful and professional manner. This had earned him a lot of respect from basically everybody.

He will be missed.

Aretha Franklin, 'Queen of Soul', dies aged 76

Aretha Franklin, the "queen of soul" who became the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, has died in Detroit at the age of 76.

The legendary singer was diagnosed with cancer in 2010 and announced last year she was retiring from music.

Known for hits like Respect and Think, she had more than 20 US number ones over a career spanning seven decades.

She deserves more respect in this thread.


R.I.P to the best female singer ever.

I'll say a little prayer for her tonight.

And Matt "Guitar" Murphy, who played Aretha Franklin's character's husband in the film, died just a couple of months ago and his entry in this thread is just a few stiffs above.

Coincidence?

No such thing!
