Comments from g zuss

best thing the band ever did. sometimes straight up rock and roll is the best route. nothing else they have done matches the bends. it's all too contrived and much of it leaves me empty. i said goodbye to the band after ok computer. drastically changing styles doesn't impress me. neil young has done it his entire career.

stereogum's obsession with pissing matches is making it hard for me to justify spending time reading anything here. and the comments that feed the flames are even worse. if it ain't about music then it ain't about me.

the name "kanye west" is much more offensive to me.

March 2, 2015 on The Grateful Dead’s Farewell Shows Are Being Scalped At $10k A Ticket
as much as i love the dead, i'd sell in a heartbeat. unless of course, you don't need the dough. baby boomer rock has siphoned a lot of cash out of gen x's pockets. this is one chance to get some back. plus, the shows will be on dime possibly sounding much better coming from an experienced taper rather than the acoustics of a football stadium.

i love a.i.c. their music wasn't all that original although it rocked but the vocal harmonies put them over the top. layne and jerry had it dialed in. really incredible and well thought out. btw, the song "black turns into blue" breaks my heart every time.

i'd say i have a pretty firm grasp of his work and to me, benji is his best. as far as life affirming goes, it literally does that for me as a document of growing up in ne ohio, leaving it behind but still carrying the scars of growing up in a fucked up place. i know the places he refers to, the types of friends he had, even the aerosol cans aren't foreign to me having thrown a lot of dumb shit on fires myself as a young idiot.. the album speaks to me in a way songs about pining for a girl never could. this doesn't negate your view but i hope it expands your understanding of why benji may be considered koz's best work.

i find it pretty sad that jack would even feel like he had to take the time to write a rebuttal. paul mccartney has been dead since the 60's and he's not crying "i'm alive dammit, i'm alive!"

did you bother to read what kanye said before you started typing. HE referred to her as a musician. I'm quoting HIM.

beyonce is a musician? i though she was just someone who yelled in key. haven't given a crap about the grammys (or any award shows) since the jethro tull win.

had the grateful dead not allowed fans to tape their shows there's a good chance they would have faded into obscurity years ago. instead, they were able to spread their music in ways they could never have done themselves. today, years after the end of the band the surviving members still make bank. taylor swift and the other musicians that think they are protecting something by suing people are just paying lawyers and costing themselves money.

has stereogum done the bts best to worst? if not, for shits and giggles. no normal years or caustic resin split included. ultimate alternative wavers perfect from now on you in reverse keep it like a secret there's nothing wrong with love there is no enemy ancient melodies of the future i'm sure that this list could vary wildly for others but i'd be very surprised to see amotf at the top of anyone's list.

somewhere in new mexico, not far from the landfill where all the atari e.t. games are buried is a mountain solely comprised of vinyl and cd copies of "landing on water"
