Yeah, I probably am but I remember watching a news special comparing his “brand” (that hurt) and profitability to the likes of Elvis’s.
Damn son, I wasn’t supporting her reaping of Kurt’s posthumous revenue…just surprised she wasn’t on the list for that reason
Oh and why is Courtney Love not up there (assuming that she meets the criteria of the title ‘musician’)? Does she not get that Kurt/Nirvana money anymore? Or did I miss out on some litigated shit-show that took those rights away from her?
“The 25 Highest Paid Musicians of 2012″ or as I call it “The 25 Most Heavily Marketed Musicians”
Damn, damn, damn Dre,
You could at least slip in a decently witty product reference like “flow sharper than Gilette, etc…” in a verse on the album and avoid estranging lifelong fans that have put you on a musical pedestal that transcends “rapper”. Maybe Big Boi should get Converse to sponsor a song, then you’d be on board right? We still admire you greatly, it’s just getting frustrating
Sincerely yet lovingly,
But still a great list, Wowee Zowee definitely underrated. Kudos
Fuck the significance, I still think Slanted & Enchanted is the definitive and best executed Pavement album. It just breathed that “lazy yet surrounded by nuanced complexities” that became the staple of the band. “Summer Babe” comes straight out the gate and sets the context for the rest of the album, with “Here” being the only detour. Stephen’s distortion sounds so pleasantly messy and I think Pavement are at their strongest when Mark Ibold’s bass is as prominent as it is on this one. If “Frontwards” would’ve only been written for this album then it would be no-contest.
Wait, where the FUCK is Grizzly Bear? Oh…sorry, still emerged in the wonderment of that stream. Probably should stay away from lists
This works even better for the Black Keys this week
You sir, have possibly just invented a meme
