Adam Levine does a terrible Michael Jackson and Jimmy Fallon doesn’t know the difference between Iggy Azalea and Charlie XCX. Good to know.
“…once you become a serious fan, it’ll grow and grow in your estimation…”
I guess our fandom just isn’t serious enough. :\
Putting ‘Highway to Hell’ that low on the list is just ridiculous. You might personally take offense to Mutt Lange’s influence, but there’s no way it’s not in a two-way tie for #1 with ‘Back in Black’.
‘Powerage’? Gimme a break. Objectivity went right out the window with that placement.
And why is she only now talking about this 43 years later?
“Marianne Faithfull has a new album called Give My Love To London coming out on 9/29.”
Oh, right. Now it all makes sense…
Meh. Would have been better as a full Beck record.
100% chance D’Angelo cancels last minute
Pretty fantastic! Although, Under Pressure is a little ambitious for a bar band. I grew up around dudes in bar bands and they rarely strayed beyond your basic Van Halen, AC/DC, Zeppelin, Kiss, Metallica territory.
In other news: Cranky old man is cranky, old.
The Nirvana performance was pretty disappointing. Joan Jett over-enunciated every word in ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’. Kim Gordon’s voice was completely shot and way off-key. Annie Clark was far too restrained, totally sucking the life out of ‘Lithium’. And Lorde was just a really bizarre choice. From her overly-affected vocal style to the ridiculous posturing, her whole performance was a joke.
I hope the afterparty at St. Vitus was better than this. Maybe they should have just had John McCauley front the whole set instead.
