Immediately get the Street Spirit vibe! Nice call. Not much rap out there currently sounding like this. Boys en fuego.

Well, for starters, BSSM was their pinnacle and the perfect elevation from Mothers Milk and essentially drew the masses into California punk before blowing their unique style into a fantastic blend of trend setting ear candy & accessibility. So really, who gives a crap what they may be like today...I think we're cool with their contributions. Love when people give the ole 'what have you done for me lately' schtick to a band that really has no obligation to anything. And those that aren't 'too young' should be the first in line to commend them for it Eww.

February 4, 2016 on Holy Grail Red Hot Chili Peppers Rarity “Circle Of The Noose” Finally Surfaces
That was actually a pretty good review, I thought, as well as this assessment of what is a very polarizing band. The minute I heard Silence Yourself, I was blown away but thought that once they settle down and capture the core of that epic energy and created more space with their songs, they'd be scary good with their future recordings. I still don't think they've reached their apex, but once they harness the rage, cinematic emotion and sturdier built song structure, they'll grow. Adore Life is a great step in that direction...

Not that you may be wrong, but she played about 80 dates for her 1989 tour...which would mean she would have charged a total of almost 350 million dollars. Mind you, these would not be her revenue sales, just the total of what she actually charged. As of September, her tour grossed $130 Million.

He is notorious for being impossible with his demands regarding the quality of sound mixing with live shows. He's walked off the stage because of unexpected feedback or a crew member dropping the ball with a particular sound he wants to achieve. You are so right...filthy gnr would such a treat with a nice acoustic set in the middle and some 'get in the ring muthafucka and I'll kick your bitchy little ass' venom. Problem is to pull that off, it'd have to be at The Bowery or maybe 12K seat arenas. You go big, you lose that element immediately. It'll just turn into lighter lit sways to Paradise City

To put this into perspective, this is what my brief research returned back to me Kanye-$600K Bruce/Taylor Swift/Timberlake/Madonna etc $1 Million+ No one (that I see) even comes close to even 2 million. Let that sink in...

I saw that Glass Spider Tour in an arena, and it was quite an event. I think he also ran that tour in stadiums so the version i saw was a smaller stage set up but nonetheless over the top. Along with Frampton, he also had Charlie Sexton on guitar too. People discredit Never Let Me Down, but I actually loved it. It's downfall I think was that it was just so...80's. This tour was the climax of Bowie and that decade and the tour elected it with MTV darling like China Girl, Fashion, Absolute Beginners, Fame, Modern Love etc. Thing about Bowie (well, one of the many things) is that he adapted to each decade so well. When you look back on his career, its very easy to recognize, 'Oh that was Bowie in the 70's, or yeah, that was him in the 80's....the 90's." He put his own stamp on each album recorded. A true monument to rock.

Whoa whoa whoa....was that a casually written mention of Ian Astbury covering David Bowie that just seemed to get lost in an article about Courtney Love covering a Radiohead song? Is it just me or is that way more intriguing??! That's like Jim Morrison rising from the dead and walking into the Whiskey Go-Go and choosing to cover Arcade Fire.

January 6, 2016 on Courtney Love Covered The Shit Out Of Radiohead’s “Creep” Last Night
Without buying into the negative, sarcastic banter regarding one of the truly great bands of my time on this particular board, you have a point here. If they were to take the Van Halen road, play a few 12-15K arena and casinos, I think it'd have a more impacting result for them. Wouldn't be great to see them in a slightly more intimate setting with maybe a mid point setlist that focuses on some acoustic 'Lies' and just have it be a fun final lap. I can't see them charging almost $300 and selling out Foxboro. At all. Baby sips, G'nR...baby sips.

December 30, 2015 on Guns N’ Roses Confirmed To Reunite For Coachella
Self absorbed, eccentric, egomaniacal fools that are so far off the grid of reality who are basically left with lighting their fireplaces with $100 bills as the only remaining form of personal entertainment think we do...seems to be the only logical reason behind your insanely rational question!

Well, Tilman ventured solo and that didn't turn out badly, so one would only think it'd be two fold as successful with Pecknold.
