A few of the bands that are in heavy rotation on my playlists these days. Some old/some new, but definitley worth a listen:
Greta Van Fleet - Sound EXACTLY like Led Zeppelin on most of their tracks. 3 brothers from Michigan trying to bring back the late '60s/early 70's hard rock sound (Wall Street Journal did a good write-up on these guys). My band has covered "Safari Song" a few times. If you've ever been into Zeppelin, give 'em a listen.
Nahko & Medicine for the People - I've seen these guys live 4 or 5 times in the past year and their shows never disappoint (Their shows at Red Rocks in Colorado are awesome - its like the place was built for them). Nahko's lyrics generally have an uplifting message and weave his native American background into much of their material (he usually starts each show with a prayer for the crowd given by his medicine man uncle in full Indian costume) - their live shows are almost a "religious experience". Hard to put a label on them, but sounds a little like Dave Matthews. I spin these guys up almost every time I get in the car. Nahko is by far my "best discovery" of the past 5 years.
Carbon Leaf - An adult contemporary act out of Virginia (I think) with quite a bit of Celtic flair. Apparently these guys have been together for over 20 years, but I had never heard of them until a buddy asked me if I wanted to attend a show with him as he was a fan. They hooked me at the show and I find myself spinning their studio releases up frequently. "Indian Summer" is a particularly good release.
GuitarZ: I'm okay with the AARP letters. You're still living and breathing? What the heck am I to think when a funeral home sends me a free consultation offer? Ouch!

The Bad Poodle: I bought airline tickets online... now every few days i get emails that read "Your trip is almost here but aren't you forgetting something?? You don't have trip insurance!" and i'm thinking..."is there something i should know about your plane maintenance?"

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!

roscoenyc: I have never in my life experienced tube rattle. That said, I've only been playing electric guitar for 49 years.

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.

premiumplus (Dave): I was wondering why a Frisbee gets larger the closer it gets. Then it hit me.
