    Well I'll start out by stating the obvious

    Mick Jagger

    np- Joni Mitchell 's Painting With Words and Music DVD. Excellent sound quality and a nice subtle 5.1 mix.
    Do I have to spell it out?

    C---H---E---E----S----E

    A--N--D

    O---N---I---O---N---S

    Oh No

    Neil Peart has been know to ride his bike from gig to gig. Also, Gary Willis of Tribal Tech rides a mountain bike. Sammy Hagar even had his own Red Rocker mountain bike.

    IMHO, Anna rocks, and she's pretty. Fit.

    Dunno much about his music (the Evil Twins like it and had me listen to some), but Henry Rollins has some guns that I sure wouldn't want to get punched with.

    I don't generally go too deeply into personal stuff like this but a couple of things come to mind. Read somewhere along the line that David Lee Roth was using some form of martial arts training to keep in shape and that he took it fairly seriously. for all I know he smokes crack before hand and gets drunk afterwards so don't bet the homestead on that one.

    I think Dave Navarro takes fitness pretty seriously as well. Given his history I wouldn't be surprised if he subsititued one addiction for another. More power to the guy if I'm correct.

    Some TV program years ago did a special on Aerosmith and their committment to fitness and how it's prolonged their careers and stood in stark contrast to their drug and alcohol abusing past. Still with it? Couldn't really say.

    And who was it that played sax for Tina Turner during the 80's. That guy looked like a steriod munching freak for a saxaphone player. think he was in Mad Max, Beyone Thunder Dome as well.

    In other words, I have nothing to add!

    ...I don't suppose you knew (or cared) that when I was in high school the local teenage garage heavy metal band was called Intruder...whose drummer was Mike Portnoy, currently of Dream Theater. HAHAHAHAHA

    Yeah, I guess opening the fridge works my pecs. And lifting a cocktail glass to my lips could be considered a bicep curl.

    Seriously, the chick from No Doubt (I can't remember her name) has a killer set of abs. She must be into fitness.

    Kraftwerk are hardcore bikers. Their last album was a soundtrack for the Tour De France.

    Actually, from what I've read, though Kraftwerk songs have been used in some way as a cross-promotion for the race, this is not a soundtrack album. Despite the title.

    Bitte me

    No, I'm pretty sure it's an officially recognized soundtrack for it (although I do acknowledge -- I searched "site:letour.fr kraftwerk" and got nothing). Just like the Expo track they did from 2000.

    For example: look at this page from the official Kraftwerk site, notice in particular the logo in the upper left corner of the album. That's the official Tour de France logo.

    I posted this over in the mountain bike forum, and it got over 1,000 hits, and quite a few responses.

    Finch--thanks a lot for putting that up on that forum. I was actually doing this to help out a friend & it's been very, very helpful.

    ..it didn't seem like something you'd ask for yourself. Glad it helped.
