    G sighting on the best group ever!

    Ok, maybe that can be argued, but certainly one of my favorite songs from my favorite artist!

    Im not sure what model is shown right at the beginning of the video, any thoughts? I was thinking a DW9052?

    I must show this to my son Bram. He still calls the 'The brothers Hartnoll', as I learned him that when I showed him 'Doctor Who' a few years back. I sadly missed them this summer in Belgium. they were playing with Ettienne de Crecy in less than 100 kilometrs from where I live!

    It looks like this model a bit to me:



    It would be logical. It is from their album In Sides, made with solar energy (tey used a special "energy truck" of greenpeace to power their studio. Well, you probably have this great album, so you can check inside the sleeve, there you can read more about it and I think there were also some photo's. I always found the video they shot for "The Box" (actually "The Box II) very beautiful, even a bit scary. I like that kind of cinematography.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Suddenly I got it. It's a Toughlabel DW-9550. I recognize the strap! Very cool model!

    That thing is just plain sick and I am not worthy of such awesomeness.

    I met Phil Hartnoll a few times, really nice guy and really passionate about his music. The box is awesome and what a video.

    The best group EVER? From a talent perspective I would say that would be Weather Report or the original Mahavishnu Orchestra.

    Orbital are clearly not the best group ever , but then Weather Report and the Mahavishnus were too 'niche' for that title too.

    Just like Art Tatum was and wasn't the best piano player ever.

    Exactly. There is no such thing as the best group, artist, drummer, etc. First, how would you measure it? Second, you'd have to compare the skills of all the musicians in the world! :)

    Including the dead ones like Liszt and Paganini who no living person has heard.
