  1. I was playing for a short time this afternoon with a toon, who will remain nameless to protect the innocent, and she made an OWOOOOOO kind of noise and mentioned how funny it sounded. Well, I ALWAYS play without sound (with 4 kids I have noise enough, thank you very much) unless I am in the CJ (or skyping with Josh, Pinky, or Stubby). This afternoon I decided to put in a CD instead of having the quiet. I almost always listen to classical music but decided to have a blast from the past. I told her I was listening to CDs instead of TT noises and she asked which ones. I told her Journey and Boston and she was like "who????". Now I know I am only 25 and all, but I couldnt believe it!! Maybe it is just me, but I thought these 2 groups were timeless!!! Man I feel old!! You know I luv ya bunny but I will be asking!!!:)

    My 17 yr old daughter LOVES Boston. And Yes. And Janis. It's creepy. lol I tried her on Journey but she didn't like it. She found all this herself, so I thought I'd expand on it. I guess since I showed it to her it wasn't as cool. :coco:

    Wow I am old! Journey and Boston were some of my favorite groups. Of course I was a big Aerosmith fan too!

    Oh and for the record, she read over my shoulder and LOVES Journey now. And, of course, doesn't remember when I introduced them to her. Gotta love kids!
     
  6. I am raising very strange kids. They got ME hooked on classical music!!! My 2 sons play cello and my girls play violin (my oldest dgt <16>plays viola also) and the older 2 are really into multiple orchestras. You know something is wrong when your 16 year old requests Vivaldi's concerto number 3 for Christmas!! When I gave her the CD along with a CD of Vivaldi's string quartets she was in heaven!! They look at me like I am totally nuts when I break out some of my "old" music. Oh and Aerosmith was one of my favorites also!!! I should break out the Led Zepplin and see their reaction (and YES that was way before my time but I used to love it)!!!

    The beauty thing here is the fact that since some of us are skyping while we play, I had to go buy a headset for the computer. Now I can get on TT, pop in a CD, and put on the headset. My kids can't hear the music so they think I am totally normal now!! And BONUS I dont hear their noise either!! Thanks Josh and Pinky!!!!:thumbup1:
     
  7. Speaking of Journey. Has anyone heard the new singer they replaced Steve Perry with? You can't hardly tell the difference. I can't wait to hear more from them in the future.
     
  8. Sorry, it will NEVER be Journey without either Steve Perry or Neil Schon!!! Kinda like Van Halen without David Lee Roth. Its just wrong!! Just cant submit to that one!!!!:sad3: LOL
     
  9. Indeed it will not be the same but I am hopeful that they produce some higher quality then Van Halen Did after David Lee Roth.

    All you Van Halen fans don't take this personally. I did enjoy some of the songs but nothing was like the origionals.

    Arnel Pineda. You should hear his other covers aside from Journey. They come pretty close too. But I have an untrained ear so others might disagree.

    Journey: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88nfiZ-yy5Q
    The Police: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLHOQz8N8Gk

    I can't remember how Boston sounded (although I should be old enough to) so here is his Boston cover: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf-2Rk_uIPU

    I came across a blog about him a month ago and googled and youtube'd him a whole night (stalker alert?) during one of my insomnia attacks. He comes from my country which is one other reason for my interest.
