That's pretty awesome! I remember liking songs by Primus as a kid/teen. But it never seemed to cross over into getting the album. I should work on that.

My problem is, I can never really make a Pandora station for the "rock" songs I like. I generally like funk or jazz influenced rock. A little harder to pin down on the playlist.

Many hundreds. I have a shoebox full of ticket stubs from the early 70's of groups I couldn't remember seeing the next day. Best three concerts were Pink Floyd ay Syrian Mosque in Pittsburgh, Doors at Madison Square Garden, the Who at Westchester County Center. I remember those concerts...
