Just really really sad to listen to. Loved the band when I was a kid, first concert I ever saw was the Pumpkins.
My first Bonnaroo! Had an amazing time, NIN was certainly the stand-out, although for me Elvis Costello came close. Santigold and Crystal Castles were both pretty great too. Frankly, I fell asleep during the Boss. Not all that much of a fan to begin with, and as time went on it felt more and more contrived. Thankfully the nap left me refreshed for NIN. Epic is absolutely the word for that rendition of Hurt. I didn’t cry myself, but fuck anyone who wants to judge people who did. Can’t wait for next year!
Just wondering why his drug and alcohol abuse are barely mentioned in the comments, in favor of going after Pitchfork?
Is “too much fame too soon” code for being a drug addict, these days? Just wondering here. Substances are this kid’s real problem. As someone who enjoys his music, hope he gets some help.
Great stuff! His versatility remains amazing. Can’t wait to see him at Bonnaroo.
Kansas City please.
