May 26, 2016 on Justin Bieber And Skrillex Sued By White Hinterland Over “Sorry”
yea this seems like a pretty obvious case. even if it's not a direct sample, they certainly lifted the vocal riff. it's immediately recognizable. i wonder if they're going to use the Vanilla Ice defense, i.e. "but our riff has one extra note at the end!"

Edge is one of my guitar heroes, and does indeed have an amazing voice. but. dude. when you're invited to be the first rock musician to play in the Sistine Chapel, and you put on a nice suit, maybe that's the occasion when you should remove your damn hat for a couple hours.

absolutely agree, bloc! but to clarify, i didn't point out the intolerance of Republicans as a given - i pointed out the ~stereotype~ of the "Good Ole Boy" mentioned in the Guardian piece as being both Republican and racially intolerant, and simply noted that Don's answers, and his past, seemed to indicate opinions that are opposite to those stereotypes. also, because i was thinking of it all night, i need to go on-record as saying that The End of the Innocence—the album, not just the song—is fire.

October 2, 2015 on Don Henley Thinks Frank Ocean Is A “Talentless Little Prick” And Doesn’t Like Kanye West Either
folks - i'm talking to the author and those arguing about bigotry, etc. - did anyone actually bother to read the Guardian article? first of all, Don Henley does not use the term "black music" - that term was used by the article's author. second, there's a part that addresses the fact that he's a democrat, and discusses his audiences and their perceptions: he says "I can get along with good old boys – as long as we don’t talk about politics or religion.” taking his past into account, i interpret all of that to mean that he's a fairly liberal guy who doesn't agree with the political or religious beliefs of the stereotypical "good old boy" in his audience, i.e. Republican, racially intolerant, etc. all of this is to say that i think this whole "Don Henley is obviously a bigot" argument is being blown way out of proportion and is based on a complete misunderstanding of the source material. he's still being a dick about Frank Ocean, though.

so, after hearing that he publicly called someone—a very talented someone—a "talentless little prick", i couldn't help but think of this: Don Henley Laments the Death of Common Courtesy http://ultimateclassicrock.com/don-henley-common-courtesy/ which i now think should be more accurately headlined "Don Henley Laments the Death of People Showing Him Common Courtesy"

can't stop thinking on this. really though, imagine you're a guitarist who has for their whole life/career idolized and been inspired/influenced by Keith Richards. how pissed would you be to finally meet your ~guitar idol~ and he wants to talk about ed sheeran?

well if there's one thing i know about Noel, is that he doesn't have much problem saying what he really wants to say ;) also not sure why i got a downvote - you think that someone perhaps took me literally and thought i was hating on High Flying Birds? or defending Deadmau5?

July 29, 2015 on Avicii, Deadmau5 Respond To Noel Gallagher’s EDM Insults
sorry folks, but while i don't have any love for EDM, for Noel to call these guys out is shit. if you start out saying "i don't know anything about _____", that should be the end of your thought. i mean, i could say i don't know anything about "Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds", but it must be shit, right? what a dumb name, and look at his stupid sunglasses. and he's just plucking strings, right? the future of music is bleak indeed.

that sounds a lot more like Johnny Marr shade being thrown there. who would suggest that The Smiths could make a "really great album" if only Marr were out of the picture?
