Scott Clark's New Moniker and Other Interesting Things From Around the Web

Links.jpgThere's a good reason why Scott Clark is stenciling "Maverick" on everything he owns.  This is too cool and yes, I am very jealous.  Way to go Scott!   Click here: Two Landings and One Ground Strike « Heidelblog

Here's another misguided guilt trip to get us to exercise more.  This is also a good reason why context and the law-gospel distinction will save us from the tyranny of exercise nannies and the food police.    Click here: Bible guides some in fitness routines -

Since deep down inside Muslims know that the cross always trumps the crescent, the only way to stop the spread of the gospel is to arrest new converts to Christianity.  Of course, what they don't know is that Christianity always spreads faster when government authorities try to stamp it out.  Hint to Muslim authorities--the way to stop the spread of the gospel is to encourage these new Christians to adopt church growth techniques.  That will do it every time.

OK, these "top hundred lists" are always flawed.  But any list of the top 100 guitar songs which includes the Allman Brother's "Statesboro Blues," Jimi Hendrix's "Machine Gun,  the Stones' "Can't You Hear Me Knocking?"  can't be all wrong.  But how did Prince make this list?  And where is Deep Purple's "Smoke on the Water" and "Speed King"?  Click here: The 100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time : Rolling Stone

The list is missing Steeley Dan's Bohdisatva- one of the greatest guitar solos ever. Also should name C, S & N's Wooden Ships which also has a fantastic guitar solo.Whippin' Post (and perhaps the entire Allman Bros. opus) should be on there too.

What should not be on there are anything by Tom Petty. The presence of even one of his songs on the list makes the whole list suspect.

H-e-l-l-o-o-o!!! These people apparently never heard of Steve Vai? The closest they ever got to him on this so-called top 100 guitar songs was Zappa's "Willie the Pimp," but only because Vai played with Zappa at one time.

And yet, this is a guy who almost all other world-class electric guitarists look to as the ultimate master of the instrument, regardless of genre.

Where is Heart's "Magic Man"? When that guitar solo starts I cannot help playing air guitar to it. Simple yet melodic and captivating- one of the best.

I'd sooner heed secular "exercise nannies and food police" before full-throttle mis-use of Holy Writ.

Of course, in America, the former are mainly created by the latter. So "sooner" might be a relative term. A Christian secularist should be able to discern between cow-towing to those who create the demons of moralistic-therapeutic deism and those who do their level best to exorcise them through socio-political libertarianism instead of Christianity. Sometimes it really is about eating better and getting exercise.

Prince made the list because he is one of the most gifted pop musicians in history. Hey, classsic rock has its place in my heart (its warming-over stage in the early 90s gave it a shot in the arm), but you seriously need to dump the exclusive mullet-model when it comes to judging the pop-rock canon.

Yes, these list makers always are very ignorant of the past. Steve Vai is awesome and can be seen with Zappa and others on some great You Tube postings. (You tube has some great stuff if you look for it)
Deep Purple always gets slighted, mainly because they were never a big gossip story with the press. Not only does Deep Purple boast the great Ritchie Blackmore, but when Blackmore left mid-tour in 93, he was replaced by the great Joe Satriani to finish the tour.
And then a third legend, Steve Morse took over until present (yes, they are still rockin', minus the great Jon Lord, who retired in 2002).
Steve Morse is so good that he was voted best guitar player so many times by the readers of Guitar Player magazine that they retired him from being eligible to vote for! Now *that* is good!
So I disregard those list makers on a regular basis. They're always so far-off of reality that they embarass themselves in their ignorance.

For my money, 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago is also definitely one of the top guitar songs of all time. That solo is absolutely incredible.
