    One-Album Wonders

    I'm doing an article on bands/artists who had one great album and that was it--the rest was all mediocre or crappy. I've got a list of about 6 or 7 right now, but would like to get an even dozen... Anybody got any suggestions?

    What were the 80s really like?

    I've been watching I love the 80s on VH1, and I don't rememeber the 80's being anything like how they say it was. I wonder why that is? Oh yea, because VH1 is retarded and thinks real life is just like how it was played on TV. http://generation-add.blogspot.com/2012/10/who-killed-classic-rock.html

    Thank you Blind-fitter, its good to be back. But can someone tell me how I can get an avatar? Yes boredom Carl. But what I often wonder is where did the boredom come from? Is boredom hieghtened somehow during the teenagers/young adult's experience? Or was their brand of boredom something unique to 80s culture? Or was the boredom generated from something else? Personally I think if someone is bored then its their own damn fault.

    What were the 80s really like?

    When the 1980s began basketball players wore their shorts in a tight-fitting manner, with their socks up to their kneecaps. High school boys wore mullets in a non-ironic style. There was no AIDS then, no HIV, no al qaida, no jihad, no hole in the ozone, no genetically engineered animals, no Savings and Loan scandal. There was also no Mtv, no CNN, no ESPN, no HBO, no celebrity televangelists, no millionaire athletes, no personal home computers, no Nintendo, no Playstations, no cell phones, no gangsta rap/hip hop, no ‘sampling’, no grunge, no emo, no “alternative rock”, no compact discs, no digital music, no Prozac, and no artificial heart transplants. The one thing we did have was Classic Rock...But by the end of the decade all of that had changed.

    Rockism: Good or Bad?

    Yeah, I think you were right. My wife filed for divorce in spring of 2007. Two months after filing for divorce she told me she was pregnant with our daughter... http://generation-add.blogspot.com/2012/04/why-everything-you-think-you-know-about.html

    Rockism: Good or Bad?

    Rockism took quite a beating last year and the year before, but since then the tides have begun to change. At first many of the old guard Rockists sat watching and did nothing as Rockism got smeared. A few tried feebly to defend Rockism, but more recently a new approach has been taken. Since Kurt Cobain redefined mainstream Rock in the early 90's it has become in vouge to incorporate his vision into Rockism. This means no more racism, sexism, homo-phobia and it also means that Indieism is good and Corporate Rock is bad... Please share you thoughts about this ongoing debate and the future of Rockism... Here are some links to some of the more highly profiled articles against Rockism from the last year: http://rocknerd.org/article.pl?sid=04/11/02/0 010252&mode=thread&tid=2 http://www.seattleweekly.com/music/0518/05050 4_music_smallmouth.html http://www.rhino.com/rzine/storykeeper.lasso? storyID=715 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rockism

    How Good Of A Drummer was Ringo?

    I've been listening to George Martin's mashup of beatle songs that was released recently (titled Love) and I'm reminded of what a good drummer Ringo was. He plays a tom solo like no one else and if you listen to the drumming on"Rain" theres no way you can say he isnt a great drummer... or the breaks on "Drive My Car"... It has also been said that Ringo invented heavy metal drumming (Rock scholars point to "Ticket To Ride")...plus he had perfect timing... So why is he not given much credit?

    Thanks for the compliments. I actually like alot of so-called 'punk' albums to. But my point was simply that the album format is not the best way to experience punk...but I could be wrong...

    Bryan Ferry Steps on Nazi Landmine

    Here's my take on this issue: Bryan Ferry apologizes for his Nazi comments Basically if we discount nazi artists, then we also have to discount any other nation/regimes art that had inhumane leaders. That includes Romans, Vikings, Egyptians, etc...

    Bands that sound like Led Zeppelin:

    Yeah, they sound like Zappa too. But I think they have enough in common with Led Zep to include them on the list. I would describe them as jazzy-guitar version of Led Zep in the same manner that I would describe Dread Zeppelin as a raggae-spoof version of Led Zep.
