  1. i said some things in this forum before that i meant to be tongue in cheek and outrageous for comedic effect. they latter bothered me because they may have hurt peoples feelings. i was not trying to be malicious.
  2. he's just doing what he's doing . no need to read into it.
  3. it's harder today. you have to be a better musician today to keep up with what came before you. many of the melodies , chord progressions , song themes, styles and such that come naturally to pattern when you compose have been used up by other people. (as far as a strait ahead rock song goes) if people want to keep fresh they are going to have to do as zep did. they are going to have to incorporate other music from other cultures into their style. not everyone likes that type of music . if you just love rock n roll and your palette is not colorful it wont work for you. you have to be creative and repackage already used ideas and put your own twist on them. that being said. there's always been a handful of bands that stand out in their era to become legends in the next. they are surrounded by a thousand other bands trying to emulate it generically. record companies do not like taking risks. they see something that works, and go with it and anything remotely resembling it. when it becomes stagnant the underground is waiting for you to discover it.
  4. it's also saving lives in the short term . the main reason they allow nitrates is to prevent botulism. if you think that's outrageous. wait till they agree to ban otc vitamin supplements and herbal stuff. that could be coming next.
  5. yep, bob can kick some butt . even his more radio oriented slower stuff is at least well written and heartfelt. he said he got into writing that stuff because he found it hard to write rock songs and say all the things he wanted to say in fewer more direct lines. stynx had a handful of "ok" songs, but quickly got lured into peddling horrid sappy radio friendly stuff (just for the money, obviously). i seen tull mentioned earlier. they have enough good songs to make 2 or 3 great albums. the problem for tull has always been that they spread them out over 20 + releases.
  6. people seem to believe so.. i remember once at a pool hall when i was a kid. there was these giant speakers mounted on the wall. with a local radio station blaring through them. a zep song came on. this woman turns to me and goes " oh you like that? "yeah" "it's all about the hobbit! they wrote everything based on the hobbit!!" "ummm ok sure" "well they're still ok, but they wrote all their songs about the hobbit. they ripped off the hobbit!!, the hobbit!!!" "whatever"
  7. i was surprised to see no one stick up for bob seger. though he should probably throw half his discography into a fire lake. he's still a legend and put out some great stuff earlier in his career. bands i hate. i am really hating newer stuff. it's not so much the band's fault themselves in every case. it's the production that is sickening. this squashed noisy monotonous sound. no instraments have tone or breathing space anymore. it sucks too that a lot of older music is being remastered to achieve a similar effect to stay in line with today's market.
  8. i'm surprised no one has posted this yet.. don't click if you don't like offensive material http://youtube.com/watch?v=xRkA6zugNMQ http://youtube.com/watch?v=J10w3FuCwfQ funny. i don't necessarily agree with all of it though. rob halford doesn't take drugs. he certainly has done himself some rocking. the moody blues weren't into the drug scene . they made out ok.

    Dam Epiphone

    i have an epiphone. it's a hollow body. a bit harder to repair the shorted out wires in those. my input jack kept coming loose on me . i would re tighten it each time. eventually all the moving around caused the wires to come loose from the jack. also one of the bolts snapped into when i was lightly turning a screw to adjust the action.. it and all the hard wear looked like to be made of plastic coated with fake chrome. epiphones are also notorious for having weak necks. many people have complained of them snapping into.

    Your Song lyrics

    i'm not a lyricist or a writer of poetry. i just dabble in this stuff. this is some one of my more coherent things. i have a bunch of stuff that i wrote when i was out of my mind i can't even read through most of it. most is disturbing and sickingly painful. i wrote these when i started coming out of it a bit. death prayer power by my lips and hands from my darkness comes light i step into a bloody pentagram to be all i am is my birth rite i call unto the spirits i ask for us to have strength blood begins to drip i ask for us to not be meek we are to not be hindered our soul was made to smile of ancient cries remembered deliver us into our time the body is our bread give us hunger give us feast keep the jackals at bay give the dead in us death --------------- fight for flight raise my voice to a blackening sky angels descend remove the thorns from my side call to the sun to place the flames in my eyes feel the burning guide my way back to life this is my sacred time leathery wings mended a beast takes flight redemption is in sight begin of this cleansing pull me above the tide something calls pulls the black waters aside gives me passage from this cursed land of time bringing me out of these desert sands a promise of paradise lies ahead this is my sacred time nothing will fuck it up for me this time ---------------------- glass house up up up and away we've lost the days everything's betrayed all we can do is sing be the harbours of pain toss some stones break the glass float away ------------------- it's coming feel it slip up from behind wrapping around so tight hear it call out into the night know nowhere you're going to hide there lies something beyond your reach sparkly sharp and coming got hands around the jugular vein slice in deep into the meat i feel it vindicating i feel it annihilating i feel it empowering i want to share a piece it's the ending
  12. he's kinda boring .. but there's worse artists i guess..
