Most musicians/bands play live with backing tracks. “The whole set is programmed. The drummer is playing to a click. Everybody is hearing the click in their In-Ears. They’re hearing a mix of what they’re doing, and they’re hearing all of the backing tracks, and the peddle changes are happening. … They’re not using real amplifiers.”
“So there is no variation from show to show typically, unless they reorder the set.” The light show is pre-synched.
From prog metal to metal bands, to pop acts, they all do it. A lot of the old bands don’t do it. Jeff Beck, Pearl Jam, for instance. Aerosmith does. “Most contemporary bands play with backing tracks.”
I TOTALLY agree with what Rick says here. I heard a song on the radio a few days ago, and immediately knew it was Jeff Beck on guitar. Rick is a master at explaining the technical, but doesn’t talk about the heart, where this comes from, and then the technical makes it possible.
Beck is now 78. And I don’t know what’s going on with his heart spiritually, but what comes out of him is often amazing.
How in the world do people actually claim that any of us just happened by chance, created by no one?
46:45 “Every other technology has improved the user experience except one, music. … Over a period of decades you actually make the audio quality worse….”
55:00 The less Spotify subscribers stream music the more Spotify makes. “There is a whole system out there incentivized for people to care not care much about music.” So feature and post boring, uninspiring music — the love of money factor.
56:30 Bending the note is now gone with the feeling.
Kebu shows off his Roland synth collection. In this part, Kebu presents his JD-XA, SE-02 and FANTOM. In the end of the video, Kebu gives a jam with the three synths, controlled and clocked from the FANTOM.
Foo Fighter’s drummer, Taylor Hawkins, is found dead in another tragic ending for an artist connected to so much of the music that made its way out of Seattle in the 1990’s and into the mainstream. We take a look at how the grunge movement really has been devastated by the sex, drugs, and rock and roll lifestyle that it has perpetuated in the world.
NARRATOR @10:05 “When it comes to the grunge scene and so much of the music, this is the therapy of so many of these artists, when they are singing these songs after being bullied an so forth in high school, or whatever it may be, many of which became dropouts. …
They, themselves were ‘normal’ people who had their own problems and anxieties, and instead of casting them on Someone Who can truly take away those burdens and take away those anxieties, they thought that screaming and singing about them would provide for them a purpose and a hope that it simply did not provide.”
12:28 In the Foo Fighters movie, ‘Studio 666’ (2022), Dave Grohl becomes possessed and kills Taylor Hawkins: Trailer
Taylor Hawkins was found with over 10 types of drugs in his system.
2:05 “This song is the same thing over and over and over. … It doesn’t really go anywhere.”
27:10 “We’re in the era of limited dynamic range. Everything is compressed to the max. …the same velocity. Vocals are all autotune, so they’re all in the grid… computerized. Everything is in the exact tempo. It never moves, has no humanity. … It’s not people playing together.”
interesting, instead of straight mind-control, like most of it is today.
“We formed this band, and decided it had to be original. In those days, the currency was originality. You needed to be original. These days, it’s more like you have to be ‘the same’ to fit into some market concept.”
“We decided to use European music for the influence.”
No wonder classical music played today often feels revolting and disturbing. The Talmudic destruction of our culture!

The Met’s James Levine Also Charged for Sexual Perversion.
Maestro Levine, the longest standing director of the Metropolitan Opera was also removed from all association with the Opera due to longstanding charges of pedophilia with young boys. The Met has been suffering from declining financial support for many years and this latest problem is bound to exacerbate future contributions—in large part because “everybody knew” about Levine’s “teen boy” proclivity and yet no one at the Met would dare confront it until now.

…now the Met — the nation’s largest performing arts organization and one of the world’s most prestigious opera houses — finds itself in the position that Hollywood studios, television networks and newsrooms have confronted in recent weeks, answering questions about what it knew about allegations of sexual misconduct against one of its stars, and what actions it did and did not take.
“What we found was the more a child trained on an instrument,” Hudziak told the Washington Post, “it accelerated cortical organization in attention skill, anxiety management and emotional control.”
The study found increased thickness in parts of the brain responsible for executive functioning, which includes working memory, attentional control and organizational skills. In short, music actually helped kids become more well-rounded.
