    Curiously, how old are you? I'm 36. My mom had all of the Beatles albums and I really got into them in college. Could it be you're too young?

    I'm still waiting to hear which band from the 60's on has influenced more bands...in your opinion, of course!
    I did completely miss that line in your list... sorry!

    I'm 38, so no, not too young at all. Just don't care for the fluff and repetitiveness of The Beatles. To each their own. And coming from that point, I'm not even going to begin to debate with you who has influenced more bands because any analysis of mine will be admittedly biased by my distaste for The Beatles.

    Sorry, Lois!!! I actually couldn't come up with a decent enough discography of Beatles' tunes to know whether I'm familiar with some of their not-so-popular songs to know whether I might enjoy them. I had never heard Helter Skelter before and obviously didn't know that was a Beatles tune.

    How about Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. You can rock it out too.

    --"Nowhere Man". A bit of a challenge, but it could be done. The lyrics are very pure, but there is something about the song which would not reject louder more intense music behind it, in my opinion.
    These, few others like Yesterday, and some of the post-Beatles songs like Imagine, could fit the "stripped down" shows they occasionally do on Rockstar. My personal favorite is Octopus' Garden :-)

    Broadway, something tells me that you and I have similar tastes in music.
    And if I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know ~ Kansas

    OMG, Queensryche fans! I love them.

    I'd love to hear anything off of Operation: Mindcrime, as long as Lukas or Ryan isn't singing.

    JR... I knew I liked you for a reason. Think we could talk them into having an Operation: Mindcrime theme night???

    Have you ever seen the video for Queensryche and Dream Theater's collaboration of "Wont Get Fooled Again"??? They toured together in 2003 and it was the best freaking kickass performance I've seen live in YEARS!

    "Stripped down" kind of means "not rocked", I think. This really depends on what we are looking for. I'm trying to find songs that could actually "be crushed", since that seems to be important to this band. If there is a human being on the face of the planet who could crush "Yesterday" or "Octopus' Garden" I'd like to meet them. Using "Get Back" again as an example, you don't have to strip that song down. You can build on it and add more and louder music behind it.

    Could "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" be rocked out? Parts of it, maybe. But I'm a bit skeptical. A good part of the song is too mellow.

    I don't think they could get the rights to the Beatles, Zep, etc. I'd be really happy to hear some Stone Roses, but most people have never heard of them.

    I'd love a theme night

    You like Dream Theater too? I think we might be soulmates

    I haven't seen the video, but I'll go look for it.

    Queensryche: The Art of Live DVD has it.

    We followed them around for 4 straight concerts in CT, NY, and NJ. The bands carried equal billing and each night the bands would switch who was the opener/closer... and they'd also switch up their combined encores. IIRC, the DVD has both Wont Get Fooled and Comfortably Numb. James LaBrie and Geoff Tate have such similar, complimentary styles.

    I also got to go to Mike Portnoy's "Hammer of the Gods" concert at BBKings in NYC that year!!

    Motley Crue - Girls, girls, girls - Tommy's favorite???
    Motley Crue - Wild Side
    Metallica - Enter Sandman
    Metallica - One
    Def Leppard - Photograph
    Def Leppard - Love Bites
    Def Leppard - Long Long Way to Go
    Black Sabbath - Iron Man
    Ozzy Osborne & Lita Ford - Close My Eyes Forever
    Guns N Roses - November Rain
    Guns N Roses - Don't Cry
    Bon Jovi - Have A Nice Day
    Bon Jovi - It's My Life
    Green Day - Boulevard of Broken Dreams
    Journey - Seperate Ways
    Scorpions - Rock You Like a Hurricane
    Van Halen - Why Can't This Be Love

    Added later: Okay, so I missed the first few minutes when Gilby said they they are not going to be a heavy metal group. But it seems to me that Tommy et al. want to be the dirty, filthy band that they always were! So go figure! Anyway, other types of song recommendations are also welcome! Maybe I should also add some The Doors, The Who, Led Zep, etc.
    Good taste in music.I can see Dilana doing "Enter Sandman",Magni doing "One"....................A lso where's Kiss and AC/DC???
