Apart from a sense of humour, George also had a political bent.

Saw Grace Jones live. Commanding, hilarious, crazy, intimidating, fucking awesome.

Her onstage banter was second to none, bellowing "who's gonna come up here and fuck me tonight?" at one stage.

No takers. Too daunting a prospect.

Oh yeah, her son was in the band. Just another day at the office with mum!

Here's some Aussie connection from Flash and the Pan...the great Vanda and Young.

Embarrassing? Not sure. Probably wouldn't have been too forthcoming with my love for it in my moshpit years. A real earworm

Triple banger in the embarrassing stakes.

G n R, Jim Carrey, and the film itself. Worst Dirty Harry of the lot, and that's saying something.

Actually, ya can chuck in Liam Neeson's pony-mullet too.

Probably not an embarassing song, maybe one of the greatest songs of all time, if not the greatest?? Just didn't know where else to post it. Go on, crank it. You know you can't help yourself.

"George Michael Careless Whisper, there i said it.
I had no idea i liked this song until a few weeks ago, this random video came up in my YouTube feed(see below) and i got click baited in, then i soon realised i know this song not even sure how, but that melody almost makes your eyes water (actually i lied it did), after watching i thought fuck ive got to learn how to play this on guitar so I googled the song name with guitar tab, thinking it was probably some old 60s or 70s artist
And then up comes this, what the fuck it's George Michael?"

This should help feed your new found George Michael fetish Indo, and some....

Don't worry, I hear ya brother...

Never fear Constance. The night ended on a live show of The Beasties in Glasgow...a great show if anyone wants to check it out. Not Dolly Parton crooning into Kenny Rogers eyes...id have nightmares if i went to bed on that note!
Speaking of Beasties, if my memory serves me correct, a whole heap of us went up to their show at Theb where they played with Helmet, early/mid 90s. Was a top show.

Nah, not me, bud. Bad Religion was a SCBR Thebby excursion, I remember, from back in those days.

And Barry Gibb is a helluva songwriter! Including Islands in the Stream, of course (with his bros). Dolly's a champ too. And who doesn't like The Gambler?

Went to a JW gig at the Quarry Amphitheatre (WA) one evening a long time ago. Beautiful venue and it was a pristine clear starry night. Had never really paid much attention to his music prior to this. Went in with low to no expectations. Wow, was totally blown away that night. He played this one about mid set and ofcourse you had to be there in that atmosphere to truly appreciate it but it was fukn amazing. Hauntingly good. Crank it up.

Who summoned the swellnet drum circle at this ungodly hour!
Yes! Indeed Drums can be shredded...
Lets get ready to shred...can use 2 coat hangers and pillows...Neighbours said Yes! Do that...please!

Right handed drummer starts a drum roll from snare leading with right hand > Left hand or....like...
Down Right H > Start on snare (L2< R1) > Tom (L2< R1) > Tom (L2< R1) > Floor Tom (L2< R1) > Bass... v
v...(L1 >R2) erans < (L1 >R2) moT< (L1 >R2) < moT < (L1 >R2) < moT roolF no tratS < H thgiR pU < ssaB
...> Bass Kick > Bass Kick (Repeat) Can be 1 or 2 Pedals or 1/2/3 or more Toms.

Start Slow then repeat Forward (2x Off Beat Kicks) > Reverse Roll > (2x Off Beat Kicks) > Forward @
L/R or R/L (End Drum needs the 2 Kicks) or you can choose (Double Still Hit or Off Beats) Like a skip!
In fact you can slot in a Double Skip Beat for more natural flow...sounds wrong but it works shit hot.
You can hear it in the intro...although he doesn't share this in demo! (So yeah! This is a good Demo!)
Any (Filler) If you like! Can sound good if it's natural to drummers Style...(No right or wrong shredding)

Full on Shredder will mix in Cymbals and also mix or skip Toms in reverse order...
Even orchestrate reverse mixed patterns to evolve or switch within the shredding.
Kinda like building thru the song or solo > Background into Front'n'centre & fade while shredding.
These are the Guys/Chix that blow our tiny minds...well outta tbb's league...can dream!

The teacher explains it's all about the Flow...again what comes natural is best for each drummer.
As the dude says...It's cool to go fast & make mistakes coz that will iron out or slot in your off beats!

1/2+3/4 = Go as in a Song Start Vocal or 2x Back Beat or 2x Base Kicks or L/R Cymbal Clashes
Now the crew are shredding...or non stop reverse Drum Rolls (Workout or Shredding)
Hard to find a Basic instruction ... as most are drowned out by Metal Soundtrax but this one is clear.
Crew can follow this drummer real easy...
https://www.drumeo.com/beat/simple-drumming-warmup/

Even better... tbb will include an embarrassing song with showmanship shredding on a basic kit.
Listen / Hear Top Oz drummer Chris Karan switch L/R R/L + heaps of brilliant off beats & fills.
This dude is way too cool...can learn a lot from this Aussie Drummer.
Song for Suzy ~ Dudley Moore Trio.

There was a point in time where Michael Jackson was a musical genius and a dancing genius the guy was on another level to everyone else, and i went through a very short Michael Jackson phase when Thriller came out.

I think a lot of it still stands up and sounds as fresh as ever like this, and seeing the moonwalk for the first time blew me away.

Was pretty sad to see what he ultimately became though.

I just love the sax in many songs such as Baker street by Gerry Rafferty but i like this one too. Even though he was a fag i really like this song due to the sax.

Cant believe he died so young RIP.
