  1. I really, really like "Black Vincent Lightning 1952" or somesuch title by Richard Thompson. Great song.
  2. I like Johnny Cash pretty well. I like Marty Robbins too. But in general, I hate country.
  3. Is it just me or are music genres getting way too complicated? I was talking to someone, and they kept going off on hardcore, emocore, indie, and all these different things...What the hell? I thought indie was being a independant band, I didn't know it was a music type...
  4. I'm probably glad I've never heard of them.
  5. I hate every single cookie-cutter blonde bimbo pop star that I've ever heard. I also can't stand rap. When some rap guys stole the riff from "Crazy Train" for one of their songs, it pissed me off to no end. Also can't stand Good Charlotte, Simple Plan, and fluffy punk in general.
  6. I love the opening riff from "Kashmir" by Led Zepplein.
  7. Yeah, I love this group. DKs own for laughs though.
  8. It is far too hard for me to vote on this one. Both of these countries have contributed so much to music...I think it is a sin to go one way or the other.
  9. You know, I might have misread, but I don't think anyone has mentioned Richard Thompson yet. Great guitarist. Has anyone heard "1952 Vincent Black Lightning" or "I Feel So Good"?
  10. I don't still have the review, sorry...Its really great though. Best SOAD album yet, in my opinion. I love their style, so schitzophrenic. They juxtapose really heavy, fast stuff with these melodic, sing-along choruses. And the choruses aren't just melodic, they are powerful. Daron Malakian is a genius.
  11. Has anyone heard the latest from System of a Down? I wrote a review on it, but I don't want to put you to sleep, so just share your thougts
  12. Hmm...Goth. How about Joy Division?
  13. Which band do you think is best at putting political satire into their music? For me, the Dead Kennedys maybe.
  14. I'm wondering the same thing that scott is...Do you play an instrument? I disagree about as much as one can that it is speed that determines skill. You can have your Van Halen; in my opinion, a song can be really fast and make you go "Wow, cool!" but it just doesn't have a soul...Doesn't have anything you can really latch on to. I'll probably take some heat for saying that, but oh well. Speed is a trend, but it isn't what music should be about.
  15. Yeah, thats what I meant. The remaining originals. Sorry.
  16. Yeah, I'm pretty sure it was the complete reformed group. On their website they're listing concert dates, so I guess they're on tour. Here is a review of their performance by "Shannon" from the New York Dolls message board. "After I drove up the Philly and saw the great show on Friday night, I came back to DC (slept a few hours) and headed up to Baltimore where the Dolls were playing the annual HFSestival. (The tour T-shirts list this show as "Washington, DC" but they definitely should say "Baltimore"). Anyway, this was one of those all day long, three stages, in and around a stadium-type events. The Dolls were scheduled to go on the mainstage at 5:15, but went on a little earlier since Echo and the Bunnymen walked offstage without playing a song when singer Ian couldn't sing a note after losing his voice. So the Dolls went on around 5:00 and played about a 30 minute set. I didn't write it down, but this is pretty close to the right order: Looking for a Kiss Puss 'N' Boots Pills Can't put your arms/Lonely Planet Boy Trash Jet Boy Personality Crisis They went over fairly well considering most of the people were very young and not familiar with the band. But I think it was a difficult audience for them and much of the audience was outside the stadium when they played. Still I would guess ~10,000+ people saw them. They cut the mid-song banter to a minimum, but seemed to be enjoying themselves. The other bands were deferential throughout the day (Mike Ness from Social Distortion said they were one of this favorite two bands, and Garbage and Good Charlotte mentioned how great it was to have the Dolls there.) I've had a great New York Dolls rock and roll weekend - two shows back to back, getting their autographs and meeting them in Philly . . . it doesn't get much better. Drive, fly, take the train - see them if you can."
  17. OH! How could I forget... The riff from Kashmir by Led Zepplein.
  18. I just bought it...Listening to it right now. Its a little bit too techno-y for my taste, but it is still good.
  19. Yeah, you're right. It seems they've resigned themselves to little clubs lately. They even said that during their performance, that they were not used to playing stadium sized crowds.
  20. I can play guitar...I've got an Epiphone beginner guitar that came with a little amp right now, but I'm saving up to get a better setup. Reccomendations for amps would be appreciated...I know nothing about them.
  21. There are lots..But maybe Slash's rendition of the theme from The Godfather.
  22. I'm not sure, sorry. The frontman was pretty old though, so he mighta been an original. :: Here are some pictures from the event that people have uploaded. No NY Dolls yet though. Sorry that I'm not much help. http://www.hfstival.com/gallery/index.php?cat=8
  23. Ah yes. There were two stages. The "Main Stage" and the "Street Stage". The venue was the stadium that the Baltimore Ravens play in. I was in the pit about 10 feet from the main stage. The main stage show opened up with a band who had won a contest to open, called Gold Mind Squad. They weren't spectacular, but they were pretty damn good. The first big band was The Bravery. They really were awesome. It was cool how the singer used his mic...He didn't have a cordless or anything, he just picked up the whole damn stand and swung it around like a battleaxe. Next was Louis XIV. They were good too...The singer has a striking resemblance to Ozzy Osbourne ...Later in the show that band came out into the crowd to join the fun, which was cool. And since most of their songs involve sex, there was an abundance of flashing . After Louis XIV was They Might Be Giants...Not exactly my kind of music, but they were hilarious. They did one completely improv song where they thanked people for coming to their show. "Twelve year old boy who has no business being in the pit, thank you for coming to our show...". After that was Interpol. They were really good, but they stopped a bit early, apparently because they didn't like the sound system. Echo and the Bunnymen came on after them. They were a disgrace. The band came out, and the singer was completely wasted. He staggered up to the mic and said "Me voice is messed up, but thats not a problem." Oh yeah? In the singing business it bloody well is. And he was smoking a cigarette and drinking whiskey from a water bottle while he said this. The rest of the band sounded fine, he started to sing and didn't sound too bad...Then he threw down the mic and walked off the stage. They brought him back, tried again, and he left again. One final time, and he did it again. I felt really bad for the rest of the band..,They had the "He is such a dick" look on their faces. Their set lasted about, oh, ten minutes. From what I hear the singer threw a tantrum back there too. That left about a forty minute break during which my sister got dehydrated and had to leave. After that Garbage came on, and were really good. During their set two or three teenage girls passed out from heat or something and had to be carried away. One guy got his head busted open and was on a stretcher with a sort of glazed expression on his face...He was smiling though! After Garbage were the legendary New York Dolls. They were great...They looked really happy to be there, they were really into it...Great band. This one guy that was drunk kept looking at me and going "Dude, its the New York [bleep] Dolls!" Social Distortion came on after them. They were goddamn incredible. That might be my fanatical fan talking, but they really were. You could just feel the energy in the pit increase...I spent half that set with crowdsurfers landing on my head and moshers kicking me in the face...It was awesome. Mike Ness has such a great stage presence. I left the pit after Social D finished up...I was shaking uncontrollably from dehydration. So during Good Charlotte's performance I was downing bottles of water and eating a pretzel. One thing I observed though...That Billy Martin SE guitar that gets advertised a lot...He doesn't play it in shows! He plays a les paul or something. Billy Idol came on after GC. He was awesome...He's old enough to be my grandfather and he still has girls drooling over him. He was really awesome...The whole stadium was jumping. About halfway through his performance Bam and Phil of the show Viva La Bam came out and Phil mooned the audience. They were filming for an episode, methinks. After Billy the show was delayed because of lighting storms. People spent their time getting into fights, getting drunk, getting laid, and smoking various substances...Right under cops' noses. I spotted Don Vito from Viva La Bam piss ass drunk and chasing down some girls. Coldplay came on eventually, and were really good. They played some songs off their new album that I hadn't heard before. The headlining/closing act was the Foo Fighters. They were great, definitely deserving of all the hype they're getting. I didn't see the street stagers, but from what I hear they were all great. Sum 41 headlined that one. ...Sorry for giving you an essay...It was a big show.
