Find Me On:
THIS is why we put up with all the other crap Prince does.
Or why we ignore that crap and just listen to the music.
One or the other.
Keep that guitar and pitch-shift Macca’s voice up an octave and you’ve got Jack White.
Meh. Can I see Macca not knowing Krist Novoselic on sight, and maybe not even recognizing the name — and Novoselic is the only non-Foo in the backing group.
Non-issue. Let the man have his story.
So, I while don’t want to demean this event…
How is a 1-hour benefit a “telethon”? Doesn’t the “thon” signify something longer than normal? A “television marathon”?
On the other hand, we’ve already been calling smaller and smaller things “epic” for about a decade now, so maybe we should just screw up “telethon” too.
Words never expected to be in my mouth: “that My Little Pony convention sounds interesting.”
Dude may be freaky but…well, that might move him UP the list.
Please give generously, so that they can afford ALL of the Banana Splits’ old costumes.
It doesn’t suck at all, but it can easily be tossed in a pile with 100 other RHCP songs that have used the same formula since roughly 1995:
1. Band jam.
2. Kledis gets out his rhyming dictionary.
3. Staccato talk/singing and clever words in the verses, drawn-out syllables and simple words in the chorus.
4. Fix Kledis’ vocals and smooth out the mix for radio.
5. Ship platinum.
Maybe if they even just switched it up for once and put the drawn-out syllables in the verses and the staccato talk-singing into the choruses, it might sound a little more novel.
Y’know what chaps my ass?
A persistent, cold wind.
I’m still trying to figure out how, though.
People watch The Room because they like to watch The Room. Whether they laugh AT it or WITH it is immaterial, it makes them happy to watch The Room.
Their rationale afterward is just that, a rationale.
This just in: a song with two chords and a Latin rhythm sounds a bit like other songs with two chords and a Latin rhythm.
I swear, people aren’t even TRYING.
Um, looks like Amrit c***-blocked your attempted “controversy.”
Also, doesn’t a “controversy” require a number of people being upset about something?
As it turns out, Glenn Danzig doesn’t spend his days screaming and smearing his own blood on the walls, and can actually take care of other life forms. I can imagine that might be a letdown for a certain crowd.
Is that…a SUSHI GUN?
If so, shoot me now. With the sushi gun.
Awesome live version. The video started with closed captioning on – either someone fed it the words or that CC system is awesome, because it seemed to catch all Britt’s mumbles. (I would suggest it used the CBS captioning, but that’s usually awful.)
Is there really a difference between Petty’s solo albums and Heartbreakers albums? I mean, Wildflowers was a “solo album” so that he wouldn’t have to put up with Stan Lynch complaining all the time. Now half the band is sidemen anyway.
As for the song, it’s definitely in that late-period Petty moody mode. That is to say, meh.
