Yeah, whether you like the Eagles or not California's Right of Publicity Law is pretty clear for this kind of thing and frankly 'Don a Henley' isn't funny or clever enough to be worth fighting him over.

Oh, so you miss standing in line for hours with no guarantee you'd even get anything?

I love how "fans" of an artist's work always think they're owed more.

Mental illness ain't nothing to fuck with. (Also, digital audio doesn't work that way, frequencies inaudible to human range are filttered out.)

The worst part is Bluewater doesn't even pay people to make their terrible exploitation dreck.

Horseshit. She chooses the imagery she flirts with, she's a big girl, she can handle being questioned about her choices. If not, she can decline being interviewed or change the imagery she uses.

July 18, 2014 on Lana Del Rey & Dan Auerbach Detail Label Reservations About Ultraviolence
They were smart enough to quit whilte they were ahead. Weiland isn't, and he's not smart enough not to burn his bridges in public either. Never a big STP fan, but I feel for the DeLeo bros having to deal with his tiresome junkie BS all those years.

"Don’t go making this a male-centric issue" said the two guys discussing what another guy needs to do.

Wow, edgy: a lazy swipe at a dude from NSync who's not Timberlake. A real burn would be addressing the Arcade Fire as irrelevant (because they are) or maybe even not breathlessly reporting the antics of tiresome blog-bait artists who worship Kanye's headline-grabbing desperation to fill the void within.

Guys, guys. There's no need to argue. Both your bands are terrible, watered down crap for morons.

Steve was always a good singer, but a lot of those Journey songs really don't hold up well at all.

May 28, 2014 on Q&A: E Explains Steve Perry’s Surprise Return To The Stage And The Stirring New Eels Album
I remember watching Under Great White Northern Lights and coming away thinking that spending any time around Jack at all would be really tiresome. His overreliance on gimmicks, relentless self-promotion, and crippling insecurity says more about him than any of his music ever has.

This article and others like it are a great reason to take Stereogum out of my RSS reader, keep up the bad work.

Yeah sorry no, Coldplay is bland overboiled tripe for tired ears and you have shit taste if you disagree.

"But based on all available evidence, is there anyone who’s not Team Kim on this one?" Based on all available evidence, you're a judgmental idiot who has no business writing things for other people to read.

Haha, this idiot thinks there's such a legitimate thing as a "professional music critic". In a band, Grammy, whatever, you're still a fucking dork.

There’s no way any review any concert ever given can effectively capture the event itself.

"Bowie and Radiohead are the only two holdouts" No, Eno is representing the Bowie/Eno axis that produced the song Gabriel covered. The holdouts are Neil Young and Radiohead.

Bob's Burgers is far and away the best of Fox's animated offerings, and it's far, far more suited for kids than American Dad.

If you think bootleg vinyl of a long-defunct postpunk band is weird, you've only scratched the surface.

"Then he got the thing mastered at Abbey Road. These are boss moves..." Well, not so much a 'boss move' as something anyone can do.: http://www.abbeyroadonlinemastering.com/ And honestly, you'd probably get better results working closely with a mastering engineer who'll take the time to really properly suit your music, rather than using an anonymous and expensive-for-what-you-get online service. But then, throwing that name in there obviously did hook your attention, so I guess that's really what you're paying for.

January 3, 2013 on Shugo Tokumaru – “Katachi” (Stereogum Premiere)
Not sure how anyone can legitimately declare anything "best performance of the festival" since it's literally impossible to see every set to make an informed decision, but the best set for me was Swans.
