He was then. Now Graceland is considered one of the greatest albums of all time.

April 24, 2017 on Thurston Moore, Roger Waters, Tunde Adebimpe, & More Urge Radiohead To Cancel Israel Show
“Please do what artists did in South Africa’s era of oppression: stay away, until apartheid is over.” That's not what Paul Simon did and we got Graceland out of it. He played with black South African musicians and brought their culture to the mainstream and I think that was a beautiful thing. I highly doubt the majority of Radiohead's fans in Israel are part of the Netanyahu ultra right-wing. For the most part, these are regular people who love music who just happen to be living under a corrupt administration and why should we deny them the right to enjoy themselves?

Left out Crosby Stills and Nash. Though I guess they weren't really a band as much as three solo artists who periodically recorded and toured together. But it was still surprising when they said they would never play together again.

Trying to think of how the song "Lump" goes but then I realized I only know the lyrics to Weird Al's version, "Gump".

I've actually always found the Shaggs album pretty creepy. I thought that was part of the appeal.

I'm pretty sure Paul played "I Wanna Be Your Man" at Ringo's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction a few years ago.

October 9, 2016 on Watch Paul McCartney Play “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road?” Live For The First Time Ever With Neil Young At Desert Trip
"he hasn’t done anything with the other members of Pink Floyd since playing a one-off show with the band at Live 8 in 2005." This is false. Both David Gilmour and Nick Mason appeared at The Wall show in London's O2 Arena in 2011.

The most batshit insane thing I've heard him say is that Michelle Obama is secretly a man and Joan Rivers was killed by the government because she made a joke about it.

If Donald Trump becomes President, he'll be the first President to have appeared in the Ghostbusters 2 music video. So there's that.

Same thing happened to me a few months ago with Springsteen.

That was awesome. Daltrey's voice seems to only get more powerful with age.

Still one of the best singers of his generation. Can't wait to see The Who for the third time next month. By the way, The Who did once appear on Letterman so the Tonight Show appearance won't be their first time on US TV since 67.

"Let It Down" is probably my favorite at the moment.

I imagine he's going to do a David Bowie tribute. If that's the case, he'll almost certainly do better than Gaga.

Wow, this is great! Love that Ronnie and Darlene Love are still going strong in their 70s while a certain producer who thought he owned them rots in prison.

That's a shame. I hope he changes his mind. I don't see what's stopping him.

I can honestly say that I recorded with her! She did a songwriting activity at the Putney School Summer Programs a few years back and helped us make an experimental track, it was a lot of fun. She's a really sweet and cool person and clearly really talented, it's great to see she's doing so well!

Some people might find that song funny but it just makes me so sad. He was in serious trouble in that point in his life. He was in good physical shape but mentally, it's probably the worst he's ever been.

March 26, 2015 on Brian Wilson Reveals Why Frank Ocean & Lana Del Rey Are Not On His New Album
Brian Wilson once attempted rap on the unreleased "Sweet Insanity" album produced with Eugene Landy. It didn't turn out well. That whole album is widely available on bootleg, it's very hard to listen to.

Huh? What about Gary Clark Jr, Alabama Shakes, Kid Cudi, Tyler the Creator, The Weeknd, ASAP Rocky, TV On the Radio, Flying Lotus, FKA Twigs, Stromae... did you just read the names of the first two headliners and decide all of the musicians on the bill are white?

Why? I understand he stars on a CBS show but if that's all the criteria it takes, why not someone with actual charisma like Alan Cumming?

Animal Boy. Which is a decent album, not one of their best though. "Somebody Put Something In My Drink" and "Something to Believe In" are other good songs from that one. But "My Brain Is Hanging Upside Down" probably is one of the best songs they ever did.

I've been listening to this song all day, it's really fantastic. I like the video too, I'm not familiar with the video game but the visuals are beautiful and are very reminiscent of Star Wars.
