    Are they a band / artist you like?


    Definitely yes. I still remember the moment, when I first heard Sultans Of Swing back in 1978. The band were performing a show at the famous German "Rockpalast" TV-show and I was blown away. The guitar riff of Sultans Of Swing kept ringing in my ears for days. I have been a fan of the band since this very moment.

    Live Show Experiences:


    Saw them live on their OES-Tour in Frankfurt. Quite a relaxed gig. I thought, that everyone in the audience should have had a martini in hand.

    I am not an expert, when it comes to judge his solo work, as I only had his first three albums plus Genesis Revisited II. Maybe that is why my verdict on the new album is not as harsh as foxfeeder`s and Sredni`s. The album got some great tunes and arrangements and is definitely much more accessible, than some of his older stuff. I listened to the album several times now, and the more I listen to it, the more I like it.

    I have started watching The Marvelous Mrs Maisel on amazon prime. It is a serial created by Amy Sherman-Palladino, who also created Gilmore Girls. Though the plot is completely different, you find quite a few parallels to GG. The music, the endless talking of the protagonists at top speed, etc. If you liked Gilmore Girls, you will probably like MMM as well, if you didn't, well, I don't know. The story kicks off in the fifties of the last century and describes the life of a young woman, who starts a career as a stand-up comedian out of nothing supported by Lenny Bruce (declaring a truce^^).


    Great actors on there, especially Tony Shalhoub (Monk) and Marin Hinkle (Two And A Half Men).


    Check it out....


    The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel on Amazon Prime. Takes place in 1958. The set and wardrobe are perfect for the time period. The storyline is about a Jewish wife who takes a shot at stand up comedy. Fabulous! Recommended.

    Yes, very nice. My daughter is at home right now and we have returned to Gilmore Girls for a change.:rolleyes: I also watch Black Sails, when I get the chance..

    I am completely away from listening to lp-records or cds. All the music I have is on my 160 gigabyte iPod and on my Mac. When I play music from my Mac, I usually don't use extra equipment. When I use the iPod, I either use earphones or put the iPod on a Bose-Booster. I also started streaming albums via amazon prime recently and play that music directly from my iPad or Mac.


    I also use a Bluetooth device from muvo (creative muvo 2) every now and then. I am still looking for a Bluetooth device that offers a great sound and stereo effect for my living room but haven't found anything useful, yet. Any advice would be welcome.
