Brew Music
« Reply #210 on: April 23, 2010, 11:13:52 AM »
Is there a certain kind of music you always listen to when brewing? I seem to always listen to southern rock. Lynyrd Skynayd, Marshall Tucker, Neil Young, Hank Williams Jr. and more. Just feels right I guess.
I just finished what will be an Oaked Vanilla Bourbon Porter (D-Day).
Cheers NAZZ

I like to listen to polka when brewing German styles. Otherwise I just enjoy listening to the birds (actual birds, not The Birds) and the roar of the burner.  :) And sometimes Steely Dan. And of course the Alman Bros. Got tix to see them tomorrow night, coincidentally.  8)

Since a lot of us drink when we brew, I think this previous thread probably applies as well.

I usually listen to brewing podcasts when I brew.

I usually listen to my faves on mp3 (Blues, Bluegrass, Gov't Mule, Widespread Panic, Grateful Dead, etc).  But sometimes I crank up the "rock block weekend" station for the Stones, Black Sabbath, Ted Nugent, etc.  The older I get, the more I like AC/DC

The name AC/DC freaks me out a little bit. So do the words to Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. Something just doesn't sit right with me with that song.

I really have to agree here.  I still haven't finished my third decade (in actuality, but I like to think you're only as old as you feel which puts me in the upper echelons) but I remember somewhat disparaged and disregarded them in my younger days when I felt rocknroll should be more serious and emphatic (the Who, and various proggers such as Anderson and Squire and company), but nowadays, damn, its brainless and silly, but its fun as hell!  An AC/DC cover band would be a very fun sort of gig on guitar...I considered auditioning for a  tribute band that had a bass opening, but AC/DC bass is a bit on the solid, steady, and brain-numbing side, so I'm holding out for the Bootsy Collins tribute act (some cosmetic surgery may be required to pull that off).

They are a great alternative to the vast sea of pompous, bombastic, self-absorbed heavy metal:

EDIT:  I remember when I was 16 and listening to Weezer and Radiohead...I worked as a dishwasher and the cook was way into hard rock...every time AC/DC came on the radio I would say the singer (mostly Brian Johnson) sounded exactly like Elmo.  I still hear the similarity...

I dont know about Brian Johnson, although he is into lavish musicals. ( I think he is working on a big musical now.)

But you defiantly have to wonder about Bon Scott.

As crazy as he may have been....he was a great rock and roll front man all the way through. I love all of their old stuff with Bon.

Did you know Bon Scott was in the Valentines?

Without Bon Scott AC?DC would have been lost.

Hey, anybody remember Rose Tattoo? If you ask me that is the band AC/DC aspired to be like back then and Jet aspires to be like today. Neither came close.

Yeah, Angry Anderson is awesome. Rossi told me today that his band was on the ticket with them back in the 80's. He said angry isnt angry at all. Stands 5'2" and is very kind.

Mad Max fans may remember him as the bad guy that wears the big feather in Beyond Thunderdome.
