there needs to be more music videos that feature bands standing at their instruments and not playing them at all like during the bridge of this one.
just singing a song is probably the best song he’s done since the 70s
what’s a shame is that his voice sounds to be in its best shape in 10 years.
well Ram is the original indie rock record
how can anyone shit on a song that has someone playing a bass with a slide?
ok that’s amazing. they should’ve called it Microsoft Wesley Willis.
anyone else notice that the girl is using a mac?
i love the love you guys have for fleetwood mac
you’re forgetting the horrific rock around barack by pearl jam
i’m glad they got dr. gregory house play guitar….
the whole concert is up there
what a great show. very bittersweet. they were definitely playing their hearts out on a lot of songs. driven to tears stands out. sting getting shaved and pampered during the 1st encore break was great.
there’s the MMJ + EV a quick one. it’s pretty fucking awesome.
I was there and no one was really paying attention until Pearl Jam was announced and took over. Perhaps that just LA crowds? Everyone else was cool, and having watched the tv broadcast, sounded better than they did live (incubus was weak live, but is good on the show).
I am so ready for night 2. And with no album to plug, we might get like 2 repeats.
It’s going to be hard to top last nights crowd. When you get everyone singing along to a riot act bside like down, you’re doing something right.
also in a few weeks he’ll be playing with the who…
I’m almost 98% certain I heard Led Zeppelin rehearsing in NYC (56th & 111th) about 2 weeks ago.
not a bad week for Dave. start it with a beatle and ending it with zeppelin.
there’s also some clips on you tube of dave grohl playing with him on band on the run, back in the ussr, and i saw her standing there
nice pics. some of those hives shots are amazing.
FL – 5:15, I Can See For Miles, Slip Kid, I can’t explain, you better you bet
PJ – Pure And Easy, Baba, Kids are alright, pretty much anything
FF – I’m Free (good call, matt), join together, the real me
i seem to remember grohl saying that he wasn’t a big who fan…
once again, chris. you are right.
Thanks for the sage old wisdom, Jason. This is something i’ve only been able to wrap my head around recently. I tend to overthink way too much of my playing, mostly out of a fear of repeating myself. I wanted to make everything I played a new fresh idea, but then i was running out of ideas. Then I realized that is the repetition that actually defines the great players and their “signature licks”. If Bonham only did that lick he stole from ginger baker once, it wouldn’t be his. you just gotta shut off the brain and turn on the ears.
speaking of drum battles, where’s the rest of this?
and have you seen this:
ryan always looks like rick moranis
ben had to have lost like 30 lbs. damn
someone should tell geffen that green is not a primary color.
i like that they are going back to sounding like a glorified garage band. that was the charm of the blue album. so thank you rich costey for referencing blue when you mixed this.
i’m pretty sure this song is a fuck you song he wrote after the record company rejected the initial album. rivers just needed to feel pissed off an alienated again to write a true =w= song. there was a part of me that really wanted them to release the pat wilson sung track as the first single, but i think they’ve made a smart choice here.
