It’s pretty hilarious I think. Matt’s drumming skills are pretty lousy and on Meg White’s level. But the look on his face is really funny. And that show host isn’t aware of anything. Obviously she doesn’t do much background research on the music they have in the show.

You can’t stay influential for 20 years not even when you’re called Pearl Jam. We can’t always expect them to release the next “Ten”. We all know including PJ themselves that will never happen. I haven’t listened to the album myself yet but I’m not expecting an instant classic. I like their music and if it’s a decent PJ rocker I’m happy. And what from what I read that’s exactly what it is.

I understand Novoselic’s and Grohl’s standpoint. Then of course if Courtney Love is in charge of these things nothing good can come out of it. She’s always looking for attention one way or the other and money when she runs out of booze and drugs.

I was just listening to his new album on my way to work this morning and love the first part of the album so far. Very talented musician with very nice voice and good song writing.

I was there in Amsterdam and it was an awesome show. It rocked from start ’til end. Brilliant musicians playing one of the best rock shows I’ve ever seen. And I get to see them again this weekend on the Lowlands festival!

It sounds like this was an awesome show. Would love to hear those songs. Fingers crossed on them coming over to the Lowlands festival over here in two weeks!

I like the first couple of Radiohead albums best. I think it’s nice of Thom Yorke to pay his respect to Harry Patch and remind us of WW1. It was a horrible war.

I admire Jack White’s talent. I just hope his solo single is better than his Dead Weather project.

I’m listening to the song right now and my first thoughts were exactly that: Dr. Who. At least it’s better than “United States of Eurasia”. On first listen it’s not bad but not great either.

Besides all the fun some people can have with mud I prefer my festivals a little dryer. I hate it when after a while anything you touch is either muddy or soaking wet.
Would’ve loved to see Tool though.
