Here's a guy who has entertained the masses.

The great Van Morrison, a Northern Irish singer-songwriter and musician. His live performances at their best are regarded as transcendental and inspired; while some of his recordings, such as the studio albums Astral Weeks and Moondance, and the live album It's Too Late to Stop Now, are widely viewed as among the greatest ever made.
 
Known as "Van the Man" to his fans.

Never understood peoples' fascination with that one.

A "quirky" dude. Especially in with the wild hair, Euro-style shirt and the bell bottoms in the 1974 German TV video.

You mean the band?  I saw the letters and thought of a radio station west of the Mississippi rather than the initials of the members (present and past).

da band, for sure. bobby vega has got to be one of the all time great bass players. steve kimock doesn't suck on the guitar.  :D anyway really enjoyed listening to them again this morning.

on another note, relating beer & brewing, also listened to the Stones Not Fade Away. then googled you tube and saw how many folks have covered this Buddy Holly tune. to tie into the beer names thread, thought Not Fade Away would be a great name for a beer with a looong finish, maybe a big Belgian Dark Strong or an RIS. gotta give that a bit more thought.

I listened to EC's Unplugged, Pilgrim, and Another Ticket while I brewed last night.

I forgot how much I enjoy his music.  I've been a big fan since my older sister turned me on to Cream back in '68.  I lost a lot of respect for him after reading his autobiography.

But that's my s**t, and I guess I'm getting past it now cause the brewery was a rockin' last night and I enjoyed the heck out of it!

Cream was the best...the first bassist to actually inspire me (as a teenager...and this was in the late 90s) was Jack Bruce.  Some of Eric Clapton's stuff later I liked, but it had lost a lot of the raw roughness that I loved in Cream...particularly the live stuff.  It is genuinely painful to hear any of their bands play old Cream tunes now!  Ahh, what a trio that was...with no one strong leader, it was a trio of three equally amazing musicians, almost a competition, that gave it a lot of energy (and volume).

This was my first favorite band, I think. As a young musician it was like a light came on when I started listening to them.

I really like Cream/EC and Van Morrison (now, philosophers stone is my fav album set from him).  Here's another folk/jazz group that I loved as a kid - Danny Thompson (bass) and Bert Jansch (guitar) were early influences for me.

that's live from 70 or 71

you have to like a band that has that kind of light show, guitarist, drummer...and a flute player.   :)

You want a band with a flute player, this is the ultimate for me.
