Just wanted to give a shout out to the Red Album too…As a person who adores the first four Weezer albums, “Troublemaker’ might still be my favorite all time Weezer song. How’s that for arts & crafts???
Jeff Ament not having a goofy hat makes me sad…
The story I heard about Chad Channing was that Kurt & Krist both thought he was an awful drummer, but kept him in the band because he came from a wealthy family, who offered to pay for the band’s demos. They ultimately fired him, as soon as they could, when they started getting major label offers.
Musical notwithstanding, he’s seems like a decent dude and it’s commendable that neither he nor Jason Everman have tried to sell their various stories regarding the band’s early years.
No Undercover of Darkness? Man that’s a tune…
No Japandroids? And that XX record is boring as F*ck…
The Zombies currently consist only of Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone. The rest of the original members have either passed or have retired.
Paul & Tommy ARE The Replacements…Chris didn’t even play on the last tour and barely played on the last record (and from what I’ve read is unwilling to play the drums ever again.).Furthermore, it’s for a good cause.
I’m excited to hear Paul’s take on I’m Not Saying. The Nico version of that song is incredible, and it’ll be interesting to see if The ‘Mats can top it.
Did Prince fans or commentators stop calling him Prince (his given name, unlike Mos Def) just because he wanted to be called some unspeakable symbol?
Replacements are out. Paul hurt his hand, which means he cant play guitar.
Belle and Sebastian should be hitting the festival circuit next year. So should Franz Ferdinand.
And somebody should convince Damon to bring the Blur reunion to the states…
As for reunions. my list:
Lemonheads (with Juliana)
and the one that will never happen: Black Flag
And how badass would it be to say I saw Bill Withers? After Sly Stone showed up this year, somebody should call Bill…
