    I think Hal was one of the most important and influential drummers ever. I've been listening to him since birth although I'll admit I was in college before I fully understood just how often I had heard him on various albums. One of the things I always think of is the time I picked up a Mamas & Papas collection and I popped it in without really thinking and after a few songs it occurs to me "This drumming is SO good... this has to be Hal Blaine, no way is this just some random 60s guy with musical chops like this..." and sure enough, it was. One of the most tasteful, musical, intelligent drummers I've ever heard. I'm glad he lived a long and successful life.
    Nicely said. Hal’s discography is second to none. We were al influenced by Hal, and probably didn’t realize it.

    No one? Just curious of opinions.

    It's in my list but I haven't gotten to it yet. I'm just chiming in to mention that the last 2 things I've watched on Netflix have been outstanding. They are Trigger Warning with Killer Mike & Ricky Gervais' After Life.

    Just don't watch Trigger Warning in front of the kids. It has its share of NSFW moments.

    OMG, Mike. I just watched After Life last week. The part where the gal was talking about falling down by the spike... I laughed so hard my wife yelled in and told me to shut up. ( it was late and I was watching with headphones on ). But it was a fabulous watch. I think that's all the episodes (6) to the series, but I hope not.

    I watched it. Was a huge fan of Crue back in the day. Theater of Pain tour w/Loudness was my first concert. I was struck by how Mick was portrayed. He sort of tolerated the other guys. I wonder how true that was. I liked that he simply referred to Tommy as “drummer” instead of by name. The scene with Ozzy at the pool was INSANE!

    Ricky Gervais made a comment the other day about filming season 2, so it looks like the show will go on (not sure when, though).

    I can see it. He was 12yrs older than Tommy and look what a doofus he is.

    No kidding. I grew up in St. Louis, so saw them there at the old Kiel Auditorium. I was not quite 12. Wasn't supposed to go but one of my older brother's friends got into trouble at school and the Dad (who was taking them all) yelled over to me, hanging on the porch of our house, asking if I wanted to go. A few hours later I'm watching Loudness tear the roof off that place and getting my first whiff of pot smoke.

    'Dr Feelgood was one of the first hard rock albums I got - right after I got into Guns N Roses and before I got into Metallica, I must have been 11 or 12. Still love that album today, not just because it was one of my first but because it's still a great record. I always wanted to see the Cre but by the time I was seeing bands of their ilk, Vince had left, then he came back and Tommy left. I finally got to see them on the Final Tour in 2015 and man, I've seen some gigs in my time, including some great bands and noteworthy performances - but that Cre show was by far the best show, in terms of spectacle, I've ever seen. Even Maiden's most recent tour didn't top it. I've never seen so much fire, pyro, explosions, lights, lasers, moving crane platforms - and not to mention a two-story, half-arena long drum ROLLERCOASTER - in one place. It didn't even matter that Vince can't sing anymore, nor that Mars looked like he wasn't real; Sixx and Lee were on point the entire night, and the show was amazing.

    I've never got around to reading The Dirt - it's on my list; I've currently got to finish Slash's book, then I want to read The Heroin Diaries and then I'll read The Dirt - but I really enjoyed the biopic. I get that some some was fabricated, some stuff was left out, some stuff wasn't completely accurate, but it was really well done, the guys portraying the band did really well and made it believable. Apart from the fact none of them aged during the timeline...

    But holy crap, I'd have loved to have seen Cre tear it up back in their heyday of the 80's and even early 90's. I don't think we'll ever see bands like that anymore; larger than life, getting up to the crazy antics they did. GnR might have assumed the moniker of "most dangerous band in the world", but Cre pretty much invented that and paved the way for them
