Wow, I sure hope that was sarcasm. New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Baltimore, yeah - nobody ever plays those dumps.

April 14, 2015 on Jack White Plans Surprise $3 Acoustic Shows Before Long Live Hiatus
Elvis makes sense - he's been on Dave's show a zillion times, he even guest hosted during "Shingles 2003." Tom's a frequent guest, and - speaking personally - his appearance on Dave's show back in '85 or '86 (promoting "Rain Dogs") was what made me a Waits fan. As far as Foo Fighters go - it's a given that they'll be on the show. Dave has referred to them as his favorite band, and they're big fans of his. I wouldn't be surprised if they're on the very last episode.

I'm not really in the best income bracket to afford Stones tickets, but a reissue of "Sticky Fingers" with a "generous selection" of unreleased material? Yes please!

Forget about the music for a minute - EVERYBODY PUT YOUR DAMN PHONES DOWN! Sorry to get into grumpy old man mode, but whatever happened to just watching the performance with your eyes instead of documenting every nanosecond so everyone on social media knows you're there? Morons.

I guess I should give Modern Guilt another try. Having said that, I still believe that Midnite Vultures is too low here. It's top three material, easily. Even as a purely superficial, booty-shaking party album, it's a masterpiece, IMHO.

Good times! Meanwhile, I spent $25 to see Johnny Marr at a small club in Boston over the weekend and had the time of my life.

November 20, 2014 on Morrissey Storms Offstage In Poland After Fan’s Offensive Comment
I agree wholeheartedly that the Jam were (and continue to be) severely under-appreciated on U.S. shores. Perhaps their early opening slot on a Blue Oyster Cult tour (true story) had something to do with their failed trajectory. Since their career was relatively short and they only released a handful of studio albums, I'm not so sure that their discography is suited to this kind of treatment. Paul Weller's solo career, however, is another story. Talk about under-appreciated!

TL;DR. Oasis' first couple of albums contained a handful of decent songs, but success went to their heads and they've been phoning it in ever since. To this day, I have no idea why these guys remain wildly popular in their native land.

The difference is that "Time Fades Away" is actually a really good album.

I'm pretty sure it was Ringo who came up with the "mocker" line, but I could be wrong.

I'm all for artists moving out of their comfort zones, stretching out, experimenting, etc, but in the case of Weezer, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Rivers needs to stop letting other people write (and sing) the songs, Ric Ocasek needs to be Weezer's producer in perpetuity, and Pat Wilson needs to give up his strange obsession with the guitar. Seriously, dude. You're a drummer. Deal with it.

June 13, 2014 on Morrissey’s Guitarist Blasts Kristeen Young, Tony Visconti In Wake Of Tour Cancellation
In all seriousness, I can only offer my observations as an outsider, but it seems to me that Morrissey's cancellation track record puts him in a negative light. People have grown tired of his erratic behavior and constantly cancelled/rescheduled dates. Perhaps he thought he could win some sympathy by throwing the blame on someone else for a change. "This time it's not my fault, I swear!" I understand that Morrissey has helped Kristeen's career tremendously over the years, but that's no reason to throw her under the bus. That's the best I can do in terms of sorting out my opinions, and I figure it's better to leave a thoughtful comment rather than the usual "HE SHOULD EAT A CHEESEBURGER" bullshit.

"I’d say the Black Keys’ talent is 90% Auerbach" Agreed. Coincidentally, it's kind of reminiscent of the Jack/Meg ratio with the White Stripes.
