    Wow... cause Christina has an amazing, powerful voice. Don't like how she uses it, but that's another topic... anyway based on the one Lady Gaga song I heard I wouldn't compare her to Christina, or to anyone who has a remotely good voice, for that matter. I guess I could see how their style could be called similar, though.
  2. Aw that is really cool. I watched Live8 on TV with my cousin the whole day... it was an exciting event, wish I could have been there! Actually, I did score tickets to the Toronto one but no one wanted to go with me, so I gave them away. Living at residence in university, I've lived in a bubble for the past 8 months so I don't think I've actually heard The Killers' new album.

    I saw that video the other day! It was the first time I'd heard Lady Gaga. My friend had actually told me she was good, and she (my friend) doesn't even listen to terrible music. Well so I thought, until I heard this song. Is all of Lady Gaga's stuff that awful? I was surprised my friend liked her, when she shares my Jimmy Page crush!
  4. I must say I have always really really liked this song. I actually bought Hot Fuss when it came out, but could barely get through it. Just not my thing I guess!
  5. Yeah, that's what I mean. A lot of new music attempts to do the same thing, but old purists just automatically reject it because its not what they're used to. Take all the haters of Plant/Krauss, for example.
  6. I can't believe Adam came close to being voted off.... I was very happy, hehehe. That week Danny's "Come Rain or Come Shine" was by far my favourite. One of my favourite songs ever and he did an amazing job, far better than anyone else that night. Unfortunately Adam will most likely take the cake with everyone on Rock Week, being the walking rock cliche that he is. Everyone will eat it up I'm sure.
  7. The Soul Stirrers? As in Sam Cooke's Soul Stirrers?
  8. How can you make all those judgments about him from one little article? You're just totally fabricating a picture of this guy based on your own biases. I think its so funny how some people are totally ripping on Flowers here like he committed the ultimate blasphemy, as if he just kicked your mother in the face or ate a baby or something. I don't like the Killers either, but whether or not one thinks they're a good band is besides the point here I think. I read Brandon's quotes as him just saying how in general new bands face certain challenges. Like I said, I do not like The Killers... but lets say a new band I did like said what Brandon Flowers said. The point is still there, and its still true. Many fans of "classic rock" are not really willing to give new music a chance, maybe not even consciously, but they often aren't (i.e. about 3/4 of the population of this board, it looks like). Its understandable to an extent, since there's such a mass pool of amazing, groundbreaking bands/artists from the 60s/70s, and its kind of like, why search elsewhere when all the good music I need is from this era? That's alright if people want to not listen to new music, but to me its ignorant when these people bash new music when they don't know anything about it, and don't even want to look for the good stuff (and there IS good stuff. Its just hiding sometimes). As far as people only liking new bands that sound like Zeppelin... as someone said elsewhere I think that's sort of ironic, considering Led Zeppelin were all about change and sounding different. Imagine if they said the same thing about their favourite artists from the previous era of music.."We want to sound EXACTLY like Elvis. We want to sound EXACTLY like Howlin' Wolf." Um, no. The reason that Zeppelin IS so highly regarded, on the "pedestal" Brandon is talking about, and the reason why you elitists worship them so damn much, is because they DIDN'T try to sound like anyone else, they made their own novel sound. If bands didn't do that, music would sound the same as it did in 1930. Regardless of whether you think the Killers suck or not, Brandon Flowers still made a valid point. Anyone who would take off their Led Zeppelin tinted glasses might actually see that. Too bad that's just impossible for some people... edit: Oops, sorry. Didn't realize how stupidly long that post was! I need something to do.
  9. I agree, but I also agree with the other side too.... I mean, who cares anymore. Its just the internet... so what if the forum is boring... meh...
  10. That was exactly what I was going to post.

  13. Me too ! I stumbled across this on YouTube the other day... I love this song and I love Jeff Beck and I love Ray Charles so, : Sorry if its been posted 2340234 billion times or something.
  14. In my humble opinion . . . Cutest: HOTTEST:
  15. Ooooh he is amazing! P.S. May be naive of me to ask but-was that staged? I mean damn why would he pick the Amy Winehouse song over the Jackson 5 one ??
  16. Sorry but I've been keeping track of Adam and I still think he sucks. I like Allison!
