Some people might find that song funny but it just makes me so sad. He was in serious trouble in that point in his life. He was in good physical shape but mentally, it’s probably the worst he’s ever been.

March 26, 2015 on Brian Wilson Reveals Why Frank Ocean & Lana Del Rey Are Not On His New Album

Brian Wilson once attempted rap on the unreleased “Sweet Insanity” album produced with Eugene Landy. It didn’t turn out well. That whole album is widely available on bootleg, it’s very hard to listen to.

Huh? What about Gary Clark Jr, Alabama Shakes, Kid Cudi, Tyler the Creator, The Weeknd, ASAP Rocky, TV On the Radio, Flying Lotus, FKA Twigs, Stromae… did you just read the names of the first two headliners and decide all of the musicians on the bill are white?

Why? I understand he stars on a CBS show but if that’s all the criteria it takes, why not someone with actual charisma like Alan Cumming?

Animal Boy. Which is a decent album, not one of their best though. “Somebody Put Something In My Drink” and “Something to Believe In” are other good songs from that one. But “My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down” probably is one of the best songs they ever did.

I think you mean “Who are Radiohead?” was the question to a very surprising Jeopardy answer. ;)

I’ve been listening to this song all day, it’s really fantastic. I like the video too, I’m not familiar with the video game but the visuals are beautiful and are very reminiscent of Star Wars.

Even with low expectations, this is shockingly bad. I say that as a fan of both the Beatles and the Flaming Lips. Cool artwork though.

I clicked on the article ready to be disgusted but I have to admit… she’s right. You can’t derail a person because of who they choose to work with. Now, I don’t believe Terry Richardson is innocent one bit, I think he’s scum of the earth but if Sky Ferreira enjoys his photography and decides to work with him based on that, I don’t see a problem with that and if it was a positive experience for her, that’s great especially as it would be against the public’s expectations. She has nothing to do with his sexually criminal behavior. Many celebrities have been photographed by Terry Richardson. If any of them say something like, “I don’t know anything about his sexual behavior, I just know it was a good photoshoot,” how can you shame them for that? They’re just saying what they know and don’t want to get involved in something they don’t need to be involved with, can you blame them for not wanting to get involved? I feel the same way about Woody Allen. People were asking Alec Baldwin what he thought about Allen’s possible abuse of his estranged daughter just because he made a movie with him, and that’s just wrong. It’s the press and the gossip magazines being exploitative and they’re doing nothing to help the victims by such exploitation.

I thought he was already in prison. He should be there for the rest of his life. And no matter who’s singing it, including Joan Jett, “Do You Wanna Touch Me” will always creep me the fuck out.

Don Henley didn’t even write Hotel California, Don Felder did! And Henley and Frey kicked him out of the group.

I think it would have been cool if for one song, Chad took over on drums and Dave sang.

Supposedly Stevie Nicks is going to sing with them on The Tonight Show. And given that Nicks is already confirmed as part of the tribute to Linda Ronstadt, I wouldn’t be surprised if she performs with them at the induction as well.

December 12, 2013 on Stereogum’s 50 Favorite Songs Of 2013

Aside from completely botching “The Long and Winding Road,” Spector’s “reproduction” is not that bad. His version of “Across the Universe” is undoubtedly better than Martin’s which is on Past Masters though I also think the single versions of “Let It Be” and “Get Back” are better than the album versions. And then there’s a little known fact that “I Me Mine” wasn’t much of a song until Spector got involved and George reworked it. Overall, I prefer the Naked version but Spector certainly didn’t do a bad job.

I can’t be the only one who thought this was awesome. Come on, Yoko is a legend! I’m not big on her contemporary dance records but this Flaming Lips collaboration is reminiscent of her early Plastic Ono Band albums with John Lennon. Just real nasty rock and roll, nothing held back. I love it!
