Such an old soul! “New” country? I rather thought she was old country, like the real good stuff. And was that Jared Leto in her video? Or am I seeing things? Her lyrics, this story, it resonates with me through and through because it goes to show that human connection, specifically, love, is the absolute essence of everything we need to live this life.

Comment on Buckingham Out; Ringo Pissed by Mac http://gloriousnoise.com/2018/buckingham-out-ringo-pissed#comment-633250 Thu, 19 Apr 2018 14:20:10 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=17355#comment-633250 1. Michael: Sorry.

2: Hoki: Not only do I own all of the Crowded House albums, I also own most of Neil’s and have some Liam, to boot. And I have attended their concerts.

Despite that. . .

Here in the U.S. the only “hits” that the band had were “Don’t Dream It’s Over” and “Something So Strong,” and they didn’t chart particularly well. What’s more, they came out 30 years ago.

Does that matter to people who like the music? No.

Does that matter to people like Neil Finn? Yes.

After all, when you sell lots of music you get at least some revenue in return. When those sales dry up, so does the cash. Yet the bills keep coming.

In an ideal world, Neil Finn could create his own band and record and tour. He would be able to make a good living doing so.

But maybe I am absolutely wrong. Maybe musicians have longed to be in a band like Fleetwood Mac or to be on stage with a Beatle.

I somehow don’t think that’s the case in many cases. They do because they have to. The mortgage company doesn’t worry about one’s art.

But rather than being cynical, perhaps I’m just naïve.

Neil Finn one of the better song writers getting around, especially when you include some of his efforts with Split Enz.
The likes of Finn and Cambell are artists, I am sure happy to be playing and collaborating no matter the dollar figure. Perhaps you’ve a gotten touch too cynical?

Comment on Steve Perry Really Loves Journey Fans by Mary Radloff http://gloriousnoise.com/2008/steve_perry_loves_journey_fans#comment-633246 Wed, 18 Apr 2018 21:36:19 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=4803#comment-633246 It would be fantastic if Steve Perry reads these comments and decided to make himself more available to his fans. If he would only come out of hiding once in awhile, his fans would be ecstatic. But I guess hiding just adds to the mystic and makes him more and more “in demand.” Good PR?

Comment on Why “Rubber Ring” Is the Best Song Ever by D.A. Piledriver http://gloriousnoise.com/2003/why_rubber_ring_is_the_best_so#comment-633243 Sat, 14 Apr 2018 08:34:45 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=744#comment-633243 Reading this article in 2018, at age 36. Rubber Ring makes more sense to me now than it did in 2000 at age 18. I only took a brief pause from the music I was introduced to in my teens but never really left. Meaningful stuff taken in different ways. Morrissey is a cynical guy like me. Great write-up.

Comment on Old Gibson Plant in Kalamazoo Getting Facelift by Lennon Madill http://gloriousnoise.com/2017/old-gibson-plant-in-kalamazoo-getting-facelift#comment-633223 Thu, 08 Feb 2018 12:07:51 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=14151#comment-633223 My father has been a singer songwriter in the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek area for almost 40 years. He has played live music at venues and bars all over the world during his military travels. He raised me listening to songs from the greatest era in the history of music in my opinion. I grew up with the facts and history of rock and roll being told often. I always loved the fact i was born in the city where the tools used to make some of the most iconic and my favorite music came from. I have been in the area for a total of almost 20 years of my 30 year long life and still never made it to the plant. So happy they are going to give it the care and recognition it deserves.

Comment on The Worst Christmas Album Ever Made by K-Dub http://gloriousnoise.com/2007/the_worst_christmas_album_ever#comment-633193 Tue, 26 Dec 2017 00:54:29 +0000 http://gloriousnoise.com/?p=4139#comment-633193 2017 marks the 20th Anniversary of this album, and the 10th Anniversary of a review evermore hostile than the album it’s criticizing. Society reached a low point with this review. The album is selling probably close to 1000% on eBay, so it’s pretty much a collector’s item. The quick settlement was likely a copyright checkmate, not any sort of shame for trying to make people laugh.
When reading through this review, I kept saying to myself the same thing I hear anyone trying to overthink and outwit a comedian: “It’s just a joke.”

Trying to dictate what is or isn’t funny does more harm than an album like this ever could. Oftentimes, it’s the result of someone projecting their creative failures on something they think they could do better at, but they instead waste their time criticizing when they could be walking-the-walk.

“Suck on my Cock” and “Rudolph the Deep Throat Reindeer” have been in my Christmas playlist for years. While I don’t own a hardcopy of the album, I’ve listened to it in its entirely; and, yeah, some songs are definitely weaker than others, but if you can’t take the jokes at face-value, you have the problem. You’re entitled to your own opinion, but dissecting something that’s supposed to be skin-deep makes you an idiot.

Reviewers like this are just as bad as a heckler at a comedy show.

That whole album is the opposite of jolly. Of course, Judy Garland’s version is equally sad and great.
