  1. Literally, I am so, so sorry to hear of this. Charles was a lovely man. He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.

    It's been a while since I came on here, but I just had to express how sorry I am to hear of Charles, LS. I feel so heartbroken for you right now, and I know nothing will make the pain lessen, but I can only hope that you take comfort in the fact that he is well-loved and respected from all corners of the world. You're all in my prayers.
  3. I'd do all kinds of dirty to this man...
  4. I signed my life away to Twitter a few months back. Aside from it being incredibly addictive, I actually think it's pretty cool how fast you can get access to news and info. My Twitter's @misskikieg
  5. Thanks, nine. Luckily (hopefully), no one was injured and damage was minimal. Appears that Hawaii was much the same, too. Thank God.
  6. I have distant family in New Zealand and am hoping, wherever they are, that they are safe. The first waves of the Tsunami were meant to hit the NZ coast at 6am their time, so most people would've been asleep. It's 8am now and apparently the waves are getting bigger and they've just been put on full-scale Tsunami alert.
  7. Well, my devotion to that band was primarily down to Taylor Hanson. I took a lot of shit for liking that band, and still have all their early records, but I'm not so bothered now. Though one of my favourite recents bands was photographed with Zac backstage at their gig. Brought a lot of memories back.
  8. Thank you Fleetwood Mac are amazing. I saw them in the November of '03 and last November on their Unleashed tour. Lindsey is probably one of my favourite performers of all time. He just never slows down and gets better with age.
  9. Fleetwood Mac (Buckingham/Nicks). I'm so die-hard for that band I'd make a Twi-hard blush. I'm also a bit of a Runaways nut. Probably my favourite 'girl' band ev-ah. Other bands I listen to are Aerosmith, B.R.M.C, Blondie, Bob Dylan, Buckingham Nicks, C.C. Adcock, Creedence Clearwater Revival, David Bowie, The Doors, Grateful Dead, Guns N' Roses, Heart, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, Kings of Leon, Kasabian, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Muse, QOTSA, Rolling Stones, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty, The Yardbirds, 100 Monkeys. I pretty much go through phases, though. Right now I'm on an Kings of Leon bender. Incidently, Taylore, the first band I ever went hardcore over was Hanson, and that was when I was 11, back in '97.
  10. Who's not cool? You obviously have a higher expectation of Robert than is realistic and I merely pointed that out. Where we think he can sing, you don't think he can. I think it's unrealistic to expect his voice to have the same range/pitch/tone, etc, as it did way back when. If I drink a lot, smoke a lot, take a lot of drugs, have surgery on my throat, etc, are you gonna expect me to sound the same 40 years from now? Robert's voice in '73 wasn't the same. Never mind now. Before this becomes the Robert-bashing band wagon again, I'm out. Back to Daltry (again)...
  11. Was it the wrong opinion to have? Will you be able to run faster in forty years time? It's completely unrealistic to not only expect Robert's voice to be in the same shape as it was in '68, but to actually think he can't sing at all just because he's aged. I name drop her way too much, but I'd be fucking heartbroken if I ever expected 2003/09 Stevie Nicks to sound like 1975 Stevie Nicks. Her voice has deepened/aged. I know this. I expect this. I enjoy her music because of this. People age, and depending on what you've done in that time span, voices won't be the same. Robert wasn't happy with his voice on the first record, never mind the rest of it. He's had vocal surgery, he's aged, he's smoked, etc. Of course he'll sound 'shit' when you think about it like that. He'll only sound poor if you expect him to sound young. But he doesn't, and he isn't. I still recognise his voice, not matter what record it's on. And that's good enough for me. Now, back to Daltry...
  12. I'm not too fussed with the idea, too be honest. I've never been blown away by Roger's voice and I can't imagine Jimmy collaborating with anyone any time soon.
  13. She did alright on her material, not so much on Stevie's. If 'edge' is a euphemism for off-key, then, yes, you can be confident, otherwise, she should just stick to singing well within her limited range. Nicks' voice isn't what it once was, but at 62 I wouldn't expect it to be. I have a boot of her stumbling around MSG off her face in '77. She still sounded better than Taylor. Your generation may be generation 'dork ass', but I want mine to be better than that. And Taylor is not representative of it.
  14. That's exactly it. If there is someone that I haven't met in a long time, or haven't had the opportunity to meet (like people on here or family from overseas), I know I'm not in any danger of embellishing anything to them since the rest of my friends are people I live/work/went to school with. I can't act the shit without someone telling me off, and I don't feel the need to. Facebook is invaluable to me since I have a small portion of my family who are deaf. I can't call them up on the phone and ask how they are, and until Facebook, it was a lot more difficult to communicate with them.
