  1. That was my understanding too. International man of mystery.

     

    FWIW, a few of the talking heads here have claimed that Keef's biography is an excellent read : for me, he is the most interesting of the lot. Grew up with a guy who was a hardcore Stones fan, but I was always more interested in Led Zep/Sabbath etc musically, but the biggest surprise from that era is the number of drummers who cite Keith Moon as an influence - the guy died before some of them were even out of short pants. Richards did everything humanly possible to join Moon in 'Rock'n'roll heaven', but he's still with us. A true survivor.

     

    Moon was known for dramatic, suspenseful drumming—often eschewing basic back beats for a fluid, busy technique focused on fast, cascading rolls across the toms, ambidextrous double bass drum work and wild cymbal crashes and washes. He is mentioned in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as one of the greatest of all rock and roll drummers,[2] and was posthumously inducted into the Rock Hall as a member of The Who in 1990. Moon's legacy, as a member of The Who, as a solo artist, and as an eccentric personality, continues to garner awards and praise, including a Rolling Stone readers' pick placing him in second place of the magazine's "best drummers of all time" in 2011,[3] nearly 35 years after his death.

  2. I fully expected the Bulldogs fans to go ballistic after their loss yesterday, but apparently it didnt happen. They had footage of some troublemakers being dragged into psddywagons last night, including a surprisingly attractive young lady, but no widespread rioting. Must be some very unhappy Lebs in Belmore this morning. :evilpumpkin:

  7. Heavy rain in Bangkok on Friday evening paralysed traffic in many parts of the city, reports said.

     

    The rainfall that drenched the capital from 4pm left commuters and motorists stranded in traffic jams for hours as several major roads were waterlogged, among them Vibhavadi, Phahon Yothin, Sutthisan Winitchai, Ratchadaphisek, Ramkhamhaeng, Ngam Wong Wan and Charan Sanitwong.

     

    The water on most of the roads was between 20 and 30 centimetres deep, spilling over onto pedestrian footpaths.

     

    Sanya Cheenimit, director of the drainage and sewerage department of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), inspected drainage in affected areas and concluded that a total of 16 locations and roads in the capital had been clogged with water due to several hours of heavy rains.

     

    Thawi Watthana district recorded with highest volume of rain at 142 millimetres, followed by Din Daeng (95mm) and Bang Phlat (85mm), he said.

     

    Mr Sanya said earlier that City Hall expected to drain all of the water from the streets by about 8pm if the rain stopped.

    We arrived went to one of our local Restaurants on the river had to enter and leave stepping on milk crates...

     

     


  8. are the big restaurants at the riverfront (not the small ones in the food court or on the backside) now open? they were still under construction the last time I was there around 2-3 months ago

     

     

    If you are about in mid to late September .we can have dinner and do a joint review of the restaurant...?
