First Doc Emerick retires, and now this? Tough week for wacky, imaginative descriptors.

When asked by reporters if the post was a joke, 50 Cent responded, "just a lil bit."

Just here to say the METZ album got undeservedly pooped on over on the other site.

Everything about this rules! That cover art is the best. I only wish it came out in the summer, as it feels like day-drinking/cookout music.

Damn. Beautifully written. I'm looking forward to hearing this album, but I'm not sure I'm mentally ready to cope with the idea of Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band beginning their epilogue.

I appreciate the honesty. I agree that he can be sort of a caricature of his former self lately. The National are at their best when the stakes are high. That said, I’ve enjoyed every song he’s released so far from this and I’m not going to expect too much from it. I think it’ll be a perfectly good record to put on at night this Fall/Winter while I’m cooking or having a glass of wine (or both).

I just listened to this and then "Devil in a New Dress" back to back...

October 14, 2020 on Kanye West – “Nah Nah Nah”
If any of this is half as good as their recent Green Day cover, we're in for a real treat.

October 13, 2020 on The Number Ones Bonus Tracks: Queen & David Bowie’s “Under Pressure”
'Under Pressure' gives me goosebumps every time. That climax towards the end is simply transcendent. Great choice and great write-up (I didn't know much about the recording of the song). BONUS BEATS: The Americans used this song for one of their best musical montages:

While I would love a song like "Care" to get some serious play on the Hot 100, I really can't see it happening.

Good to see he hasn't forgotten how to play one of those things.

Smart move by SNL, who needed to find an artist who hates going out and having fun:

October 9, 2020 on Jack White Replaces Morgan Wallen As This Week’s SNL Musical Guest
Yeah 'Women In Love' and 'Mean Streets' are two of my favorites as well. 'Cathedral' is a neat little track too.

Great tribute, Chris. What is your favorite non-Eruption EVH solo? For me, I think it might be the one on "Ice Cream Man." Like, someone shouldn't be able to do that to 12-bar blues. Only EVH could do that. It's also easy to forget how incredible his non-Eruption instrumentals were like "Spanish Fly" and the intro to "Little Guitars."
