Eagles: I don't hate them. I think that despite their at-times tepid music, they did create some music that endures. "Pretty Maids All In A Row" is a classic; as is "In The City". And yes, I have a strong pro-Joe Walsh bias. The rest is bland and generic, but not really hate-worthy. Steve Miller Ban...

Whoever Rikki is, that crack is awesome just for its feigned ignorance. Way clever.

My 1st concert is a little embarrassing, too... I went with my mom to see John Denver. She was a huge fan of his, and I went as her "date" to see him at the late great Poplar Creek music theater in Hoffman Estates, IL. First concert with my own money was local DJ/musician Jonathon Brandmeier (yeah, ...

I don't know what's scarier: the thought of a bass solo from Michael Anthony Van Halen, or the fact that J-Frank has been to a Van Hagar concert and admits it! ;-) I've heard that same "bass solo" joke before, except the variation I heard involved three scientists captured by native tribesmen who os...

Breakfast has a lot of well-crafted songs on it, but a few that don't really stick with me. But for me, it's worth owning just for "Logical Song" and the full album-length "Take The Long Way Home". I first bought this CD , and was truly bummed that it had edited versions of "Logical Song", "Take Th...

Yeah, I dig how there's the red banner on the video saying that all comments were disabled due to uncivility among Dio's fans. It's probably more just that most right-minded people don't like a judgmental fuck yapping on and on about how she knows , she has some sort of insight into the divine mind ...

Rest in peace, Ronnie James Dio

Man, the ones you think will be around until they're in wheelchairs, still rockin' in their Depends... gone. Stomach cancer. Not cool. My deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and fans. His wife's statement, on his website. Greg Kot in The Chgo Tribune. Ronnie in happier times dissing Viv Campb...

Sting - Nada Como El Sol (...Nothing Like The Sun in spanish) Peter Gabriel had two different German-language releases: one was for PG3 (melting face) the other was for PG4 (aka Security). Both were called Ein Deutsches Album Beatles had "Sie Liebt Dich" and "Komm, Gib Mir Deine Hand" But I'd have ...

Creepy, let me know how the 20 second bonus cut "Goodnight Suckers" is on the 3D EP. Is yours the 12" version or the much-rarer 7" version?
