    I've never seen them, it's live music of an all-time immortal band, so I guess I'm pretty psyched, but not expecting to be blown away.

    Warm up ban is Cheap Trick. How many times can you hear "I Want You To Want Me"? Oooof.

    Last Sunday I saw B-52s and Squeeze. Mother****ers are OLD (Fred and Kate are 61 and 64, repsectively), but put on a great show. Lead singer for Squeeze now looks like he belongs in ZZTop.

    Go - you'll enjoy it.

    It's also famous for its many weird ass sculptures around the course.

    Do NOT turn away an opportunity to play. The day I played perhaps 8
    4 somes played. Lunch was 5 star and we were waited on hand and foot.

    It's a clip of a rock band playing The Villages in Florida, a great place to retire and listen to rock bands whilst playing golf.

    It's "Coldplay", it's one word.

    My wife got me Coldplay tickets at the Izod for my birthday a few months back. Just sold the $115 seats for $300 each on StubHub as I recognize that I don't belong at rock 'n roll concerts with tweens. Coldplay has a lot of fans, many under the age of 30.

    Saw a TV spot last night for The Who's upcoming Fall tour, where they'll feature the entire Quadrophenia album. Even as a fan since the 60s, this concept gave me douche chills. Townshend might break both legs doing one of his trademark leaps.

    (Reuters) - Legendary British rockers the Who will hit the road for their first North American concert tour in four years, playing the entire rock opera "Quadrophenia" alongside other memorable hits, the band said on Wednesday.

    The road trip starts in Florida on November 1, and features founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, alongside Zak Starkey, Pino Palladino, Simon Townshend, Chris Stainton, Loren Gold and Frank Simes.

    The Who are among the bands that led the British Invasion of the United States in the mid-1960s following the massive success of the Beatles. Joining Daltrey and Townshend originally were Keith Moon on drums and John Entwistle on bass, both of whom have died.

    The foursome scored hits such as "My Generation" and "I Can See for Miles" and like many of their rock peers, they began experimenting with new styles that led to their first rock opera, "Tommy." The 1969 work was about a deaf, dumb and blind kid who was a wiz at pinball -- that generation's equivalent of videogames.

    The band followed "Tommy" with "Quadrophenia" (1973), a musical tale of a young boy's coming of age that features hits such as "5:15" and "The Real Me" and is considered a rock classic.

    The 36-date tour features a first leg that runs six weeks and ends in Connecticut on December 9. The band will take a holiday break and resume a second leg on January 28 in California, concluding at the end of February in Rhode Island.

    In advance of the tour, a one-night-only, in-theater screening of documentary "The Who: Quadrophenia - Can You See the Real Me?", the story of making the album, will screen at movie theaters around the United States on July 24. In Canada, the film will screen in theaters on August 1.

    You sound proud of that.

    Let me get this straight.

    Your wife bought you a thoughtful gift and you threw it away.

    For $600.

    What a pathetic loser.

    Probably why you need rentals to get laid.

    Stop yelling about people and tell us about Wingfoot. Were you able to get into the room where they run the world from?

    Have to say, they got their name right, all one word, because they are on long song. Although, I wouldn't mind seeing them once on some sort of mind altering drug.

    I was camping in 8th grade, listening to WPLR (New Haven) (lived in Sag Harbor at the time - we could only get Connecticut broadcasts) and they laid down Savoy Brown in a block - some "Jack the Toad" etc and I was hooked. I think they played "Wang Dang Doodle" and I went crazy - it was awesome. I couldn't shut up about it and I almost got tied to a tree.

    WPLR = WLIR for JGM (just great music)

    If U2 and Radiohead hooked up and had a slightly handicapped child, that would be Coldplay.

    It's not my fault that no one else makes good moody alt rock anymore. If Radiohead didn't go "art" on us, there would be no Coldplay. Blame them.

    We decided to take a family trip to Niagra Falls, Cooperstown, and Cortland that week instead. Quite unselfish of me. I'm done with the rentals now, have a full-on mistress from Ramsey. She's divorced, very petite, just wants to have fun. My marriage has never been healthier.

    You lived in Sag Harbor? Did it cost a bundle to live there then like it does now?

    Did you know there's a passenger ferry between Greenport and Sag Harbor now?

    And I used to listen to Dr. Demento on WPLR when I lived on the North Fork.

    I don't think that's a fair offspring analogy. Now you can kill two birds with one stone and get your 3 series serviced while you are getting serviced in Ramsey.

    Cheap aint the word. WhalerBurger was the only fast food for miles; Southhampton (just past watermill) had the only McD's. No cable. I was there '71-'76

    Sunday night! I was just giving my 20-something boys a lesson on Weird Al and his mentor Dr. Demento. Actually I think Alan Sherman was Weird Al's muse.

    ROCK YOURS. IN QUAD!


    we had no football team, just basketball, baseball and track. The only team we could beat every time in Baseball was Shelter Island. lol

    I remember in the late 70's early 80's getting a Conn jazz station out of New Haven. Rick Laird (bass player) was a DJ.

    Played the East Course, and played very very well.

    Shot an 89 and that was with blowing up 2 holes.

    But as well as I played, I drove better than I have in a long time. I hit the new Taylor Made RocketBallz Driver and I have never hit a driver straighter. I hit one officially 279 yards (the caddie had a laser) and 4 others over 260, and that was with no roll-it was still very wet. But I have always hit them long—these were straight as an arrow. I'm buying that driver tomorrow.

    Only 2 Birdies but I rolled an Eagle past one hole and just missed the flagstick by a foot.

    Can’t chip worth a damn.

    Gotta say, a really interesting course and while not totally challenging, it was in beautiful shape. Last year it was in awful shape.

    Nice outing, followed by steamed lobsters, shrimp, crab, a raw bar, carving stations and free flowing Belvedere.

    LOL, are you serious?

    So, your self-described trophy wife is the breadwinner, she's obviously more attractive than you, and you're banging someone else?

    What is it, exactly, that you bring to the marriage other than douchebaggery?

    Must be awkward going to a Ridgewood-Ramsey little league game. I'm assuming since all us strangers know, all your neighbors know too.

    The fam must be so proud of you.

    Wow.
