Kenny certainly knew when to "fold em".  You will be missed Kenny.

This is a good time to catch up on music docs. I've been saving ZZTop for a while. It's supposed to be fantastic. I'll let you know when I get a chance to watch it.

I actually watched it over the weekend. I wouldn't be a huge fan, obviously I know the hits and they're a recognisable bunch, but I found it absolutely brilliant watching and a really great story very well told with some great music. Would definitely recommend

Awesome to hear! Sounds like the office might be sending us home over the next day or two so I'll have plenty of time to catch up.

I was never a huge ZZ Top fan. Like you, I know the hits, but I don't know much about Gibbons and the other band mates.

A day late to post it but yesterday October 2nd was the 25th anniversary of the release of What?s the story Morning Glory? By Oasis and the 20th anniversary of the release of Kid A by Radiohead, two albums I would rank in my top 10 of my lifetime.

And until yesterday I never realised they were released on the same date.

Eep, well, hearing that about Morning Glory certainly makes me feel old. Probably on a short of list of the 10 or 15 most impactful albums of my life. Oasis didn't really hit here with Definitely Maybe and I had a British friend in grade 8 who basically smuggled us in stuff like Morning Glory and Blur's Modern Life is Rubbish.

Kid A I've always struggled with. I get what it is and admire the craft behind it but I just don't like listening to it as much as I like The Bends or OK Computer.

Listening to the new Gord Downie album.  Amazing he was able to record just a few months before passing away from brain cancer.  This guy's talent is missed.
