I have a theory (perhaps incorrect) but none of these famous musicians are much better or worse than others on average.  The Beatles are roughly equal to Young who is roughly equal to Cobain. I feel that most of the time people think that one or the other is the best ever is when that person/group hit it big while they're growing up. It hits us in a very impressionable stage and that feeling sticks. As an example, a ton of baby boomers think the Beatles is the best band ever. I can barely get through a couple of their songs. Then again...maybe I'm just tone deaf! :P

You're all wrong, Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez are the best!

I'll agree with Hendrix as best guitarist and Neil Young as the best song writer. But the best all-time drummer is a tie between Keith Moon and John Bonham.

Keith Moon & John Bonham are most definitely very, very skilled drummers, but my vote has got to be for Neil Peart.

As for investing, what percentage of the general population was selling stocks at or near the lows of 2008/2009? 

I had several associates who would tell me that they were down 40%, and now was the time to be getting out!  They were going to take their lumps and get out....

What really has me spooked is that some of these same people are now looking to get back in the market.

Speaking of great drummers, we just lost one, Ginger Baker.

Sunday night I am going to see The Who, well half The Who, at the Hollywood Bowl. Zak Starkey, Ringo's son, will be playing the part of Keith Moon. That is if Roger Daltry's voice recovers. He had to quit midway through their show in Houston on Sept 25 and then canceled a couple of shows. Their next scheduled shows are Oct 11 & 13 at the Hollywood Bowl.

Please keep talking! - It's a cosy read! [ : - D ]

When I turned the sharp corner of 40 [now many years ago], I felt soo pitty for my self [about getting old],  that I spent about DKK 100 K on a B&O installation in the house. [Panick?][Pretty much so that the only places where there were no music direct available were the places where you take your dumps & showers, & where you get your sleep & sex.]

- - - o 0 o - - -

Where are we now? : In general, no music in the house. Both the Lady of the House and I are avid readers [like the calme], but actually also like to listen to music - I need to shape up here, to get it going again!

- - - o 0 o - - -

Today, I noted, the OP in this topic [[now, former] CoBF member ajc] has logged out for good. I'm feeling kind of sad about that. Relating to different wired minds is what makes you grow.

Bose makes some very good wireless bluetooth speakers.

I have a SoundSport rechargeable that goes all over the place with me.

I also have a Bose Compact L1 PA which needs an AC power source, but provides a lot more sound.
This system also has 1/4 inch TS & XLR connections to hook up guitars, pianos & microphones.

ajc will be missed. His contributions were well thought out, especially on growth stocks.

I also noticed his twitter handle went dark. I hope he is Ok. Probably just got a job in finance, so he can’t post any more.
