Thanks everyone !!  I will defiantly check those terminal ends ! Guess a continuity check is the best we can do. Hate picking up on someone else's work. Discovered the terminals in the fuse box were rusted to the point of breaking. Spent 4 hours correcting that.... and I hate electrical stuff anyway :)

Thanks !

Drummer World rates John Bonham the most influential rock drummer of all time. Link:

Still I think I prefer this guy. Damn fine lyricist too. Both he and bandmate Jack Bruce were legendary for having violent temper tantrums when under the influence which was pretty much any time they were awake.

Compare the careers of any of the ones I mentioned to Neal Peart. Maybe Bill Bruford is the most impressive, having been a major success with three different bands over the course of a very lengthy career. I like Yes and King Crimson a lot, and he was a big part of both bands over the years.

So if I was rating people simply on their merits as a drummer I would have to pick Ginger Baker. Probably Michael Shrieve after that, then Bill Bruford. For sure Led Zeppelin's John Bonham is in the top four.

I could probably fit him in the top thirty rock drummers of all time. Nowhere near the top ten. He just wasn't lucky enough to be with a band that made lots of hit records or lots of money. As a lyricist he was a bit unique among drummers but having to write lyrics for songs that usually didn't chart had to be a bit challenging.

Compare his drumming skills to Michael Shrieve of Santana. Or Ringo Starr. How about Charlie Watt? Maybe Ian Paice? What about Bill Bruford? Butch Trucks? Jai Johanny "Jailoe" Johanson? What about Aynsley Dunbar? Cozy Powell? Nick Mason? (He probably has a better car collection too!) What about Bill Payne? I am leaving out tons of very talented rock drummers. How about Dave Grohl? Maybe Don Henley of the Eagles?

I could easily populate the top thirty drummers of all time without Neal Peart being mentioned because after all his band was never one that sold lots of albums or made lots of hits. Do I like his taste in cars? Yes a lot!

Do I like Rush as a band? Yes but I would not consider them top of anything except maybe Canadian rock bands with ultra high octave vocals.

Each entitled to their own opinions.
Royce you forgot "Cesar" Zuiderwijk  - Golden Earring... listen ti his solo in the long version of Radar Love

Centerforce has been good for me ... no issues .

You know when I posted this I hoped the owners would not go through with the deletion of a great institution,  the Redskins.  Guess in this atmosphere everything has to be sterile

 " The Washington Football Team " what can I say to ALL those fans ? Go Dolphins  !

Washington Football Team's new name, logo will have no 'linkage to Native American imagery,' president Jason Wright says
70 years old, born i Richmond, been a Skins fan forever. No matter what the PC police call them , they'll always be the Redskins to me ! And most fans , I believe.

Simply Red
Best colour combination in my estimation.  Though I would take any colour where a Shelby is concerned.
I prefer the white stripes over gold even though they are not factory.

Me too ...white for sure

Not sure who determines what "market value " is ??  Its what a willing,  able buyer is ready to hand you in cash. Not what some auction house, dealer , or Ebay says. No two cars are exactly alike or have an exact history that might make it more or less valuable to a given buyer.  JMHO
