an MCU design that can morph our voice into that of Robert Plant. Put it right into the hand held microphone.

I can just picture Max singing "Black Dog" while on his treadmill posting another blog entry...

 Would Johnny Cash or B. B. King have been a winner?


Good question.  The 70's was a smorgasborg of appearance and talent.  And autotune did not exist.  I prefer raw voice to autotune.  And as kid, I didn't have a tv, so appearance didn't matter a bit.  It was all the sound that was so good. 

Speaking of Johnny Cash, I was surprised to learn that at his prison concert at San Quentin, prison inmate Merle Haggard was there.  As they say, it's a small world and things can work in mysterious ways.

 

I think one of my favorite Robert Plant songs is Twenty-Nine Palms.  If Robert Plant were twenty today, I wonder what kind of music he would be singing?  If Steven Tyler were the American Idol judge, it is possible he might survive.  If Mariah and Nicki were judging, who knows what would happen?

I knew a guy who could come out with a topical joke at any time, he was incredible.  Anything from one-liners to shaggy dog stories.  And all in his head I think.  He has also passed on, and I miss him.

One saying that I got from him, and use frequently, he'd come out with if you had had a tough day or job and were bemoaning it.  He'd nod sagely and say "Yes, I know what you mean.  Everything in your favour was against you!"

BTW I am looking forward to those brres.  I didn't know you were a cheese afficionado....  :-)

@David: Your Dad sounds like he had a good sense of humour :-)

He did -- it was a very dry sense of humor, but he was a really great guy. He wasn;t one for long jokes -- he used to love one-liners -- he used to collect them and write them down so he had a quip for every occasion.

He did have a good life -- he was very popular with the ladies -- I'll tell you about him over a brre (or three) when we meet up at EE Live.

@Max - bit of a sad story but hopefully he had a good life.  As someone in Lord of the Rings said, "there are many perils in the world".   Your Dad sounds like he had a good sense of humour :-)

Many of the artists of the 60's and 70's would never make it on American Idol or similar shows.  Their lack of conformity to the mainstream would likely have kept them from getting past the auditions and in front of the camera, the celebrity judges, and audience.  I not thinking just about rock and roll.  Would Johnny Cash or B. B. King have been a winner?
