    To all the music lovers on this site, if the Raconteurs come to your town on their current tour, do your ears and souls a huge favor and get out to see them. When they decide to get together, they are still the best live band out there. I’ve seen a lot of great live bands throughout my time on this rock, including Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rage Against the Machine, Beck, Foo Fighters, 311, The Black Keys, NOFX, Muse, White Stripes, Beck, Chili Peppers, ect, ect, ect. I can honestly say that the Raconteurs are better then all of them when it comes to putting on a show of musical genius.

      They just came to the Santa Barbara Bowl (I have a business in town, but missed them). The local paper did a cover story: https://www.independent.com/2019/07/24/raconteurs-bring-hit-record-to-the-bowl/. I’m more of a 70s and 80s guy, so I am not familiar with the band, but your accolades are impressive.

        I hear ya John. The Raconteurs style is easily multi generational. Next time they tour, be sure not to miss them!

            My local library has their first CD- I’ll check it out.

      MC, impressive, but have ever seen The McGuire Sisters? Lol! I have a month after The Stones in ’89. I was old er at Stones and a Baby compared to the Oldies at The Sisters. Wife and I were sitting at a table with some elder ladies. I asked them if the Sisters had any CD’s (they were just starting then) and they said “Oh honey we’re sure because they made a lot of money in the 40’s and 50’s. ” Of course they were talking Certificates of Deposit! Was sooo funny. Had to explain about these new little records!

      I checked them out since we have similar music taste. They are not playing anywhere on the west coast for the rest of their tour. They played in Oakland just last week.

        They aren’t my cup of tea, but the Melvins opened. I saw them open for Foo Fighters a few months after Dave released “their” first album.

      Matisyahu
      Ziggy Marley
      Rancid
      Beastie Boys( by far, the most diverse sets: from straight punk, to hip hop, to groovy, funky instrumental jams)
      Crowder
      Need to Breathe
      Kings of Leon

    My second favorite band of all time. Bradley died way too soon:

    According to Cowherd today, KD to the Knicks is 100% and he’s already contacting other players to join him.

     
  • mclyne32 (Director) 12:13 PM on May 11, 2019 Permalink  

    Still time for Jeanie to make the right decision and go outside of the Laker Family to bring in a PBO to right this ship.
    There’s still time for LeBron to lure Kawhi.
    Maybe we end up with Kyrie instead.
    All is not lost.
    We are down, but we are not out.

    Well, there you have it.
    Another stupid move by our bumbling “leadership.”
    We getting nobody now and AD has already changed his mind to come here.
    It’s time to sell Buss Family!!!!!!!!!

      Not bringing in someone intelligent from the outside like David Griffin, to run this thing will be seen as the last nail in Jeanie’s coffin.
      I bet by next summer, the rest of the Buss kids force her to sell.

  • mclyne32 (Director) 4:21 PM on May 3, 2019 Permalink  

    Kemba, Vucevic, Tobias or Jimmy Butler?

    If you were running things, what order would you guys put these four?
    Second question: With who’s currently in charge, what order would they put them in?

    Take This With a Grain of Salt:

    Stephen A. said this morning that he’s hearing that BOTH Kawhi and Durant will sign with the Clippers this summer.

      A grain of salt and big glass of ‘we’ll see’

      • mclyne32 (Director) 2:53 PM on April 23, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        True, but how devastating would this be?
        Right now, they have $59 Million in cap space.

          They’re the better franchise right now, we made one splash signing who wanted to come here, anyhow. In my opinion our terrible track record in regards to signing free agents is still in full effect.

            One of the 2 would have to take less than max value unless the Clippers dump some deals (which they would assuredly do if this were to even be a possibility) but I don’t see KD coming down south. I think he goes East. But who knows, have to wait and see how the playoffs bear out.

            • mclyne32 (Director) 3:19 PM on April 23, 2019 Permalink

              I too will be shocked if he stays out West. It’s going to either be the Nets or the Knicks.

    @MM
    Just finished watching the Toronto/Magic game. You are right about Siakam. That kid is really good!
    Vucevic was mostly invisible all game.
    The Magic’s defense Is for real.
    I was also impressed with Van Fleet. He’s a pretty good backup PG.

    Who do the current crop of NBA players believe is the GOAT?

      They all take a hit to their legacy as they’re in decline. At around the same stage of his career, Kobe took a dysfunctional team (albeit one with still prime Pau and D12) to the 8 seed and pretty much cost himself a graceful exit. Take out the post Achilles years, and the gap between Kobe and Lebron isn’t quite so wide.

      • mclyne32 (Director) 10:08 AM on April 9, 2019 Permalink | Log in to Reply

        Agreed.
        I just found this interesting that the players view Kobe and LeBron on the same level for the GOAT.
        I always put much higher value in what they think than the talking heads.
