As you know, AWD loves him some good music. I’ve been listening to a lot of Steely Dan lately and have fallen back in love with what Donald Fagen and Walter Becker did back in the day. What still exists as true musical art. AWD has been listening to the Countdown To Ecstacy album. In particular, the track “Razor Boy.” It doesn’t get any better than that. Great music played by the best musicians of the day. Oh, how the musical word has turned to sh*t!
Rap crap and performers like Lady Gag Gag have destroyed music. Actually, it was MTV that killed music. Once video became the main focus, musical genius was bypassed by performers and their images. Hence, rap crap and morons like Madonna who can only get progressively more nekkid to maintain relevancy. It’s not music. It’s aural cancer.
If you love music, real music, I encourage you to watch this video how Fagen and Becker put together the team of musicians who made the masterpiece album “Aja.” AWD plays drums and guitar but never in my wildest musical dreams could I have picked up the laundry for the musicians who created Aja. If you love great music, you’ll love watching how Aja was made. You really should watch the whole thing. Amazing.
What professionalism, musicianship, and vision went into their work! True geniuses. AWD would love to meet Becker and Fagen just to thank them for their wonderful music that has brought me so much joy. I’ve seen Steely Dan in concert. Visually, it was like a funeral. But the music. Ahhhhhh, the music. Better than anything you can imagine!
Contrast Steely Dan with this! Remember, these a**holes have been invited to the Obama White House several times! Amazing how far our culture has fallen! Language warning, of course.
Screw that rap sh*t. Here’s some real Music That Doesn’t Suck. Here’s Razor Boy from Steely Dan. I love this track. Listen to the musicianship.
Here’s the masterpiece song “Aja.” The instruments! The harmonies! The jazz chords! I think God played the drums that day through Steve Gadd’s hands. Even if you’re not a musician, you should listen to this entire track.
One more. Here’s one of AWD’s favorites. “Gaucho.” Who is the gaucho, amigo?
F*** you, Little Wayne and the rest of your ilk!
