The ones we don't like, or have grown tired of, are sellouts.<<<<<

This is quite an interesting mentality - you seem to adhere to the idea that "do whatever it takes to get famous, that's all that matters" -- is that really what you believe? <<<<

No, that's not...

Don't throw bottles, man. It's cowardly, like a sucker punch. Plus, you might miss and hit a girl. Or a friend.

Thanks for posting the full text, Steve Henderson. I guess I need a tuneup, or upgrade, for Christmas. Santa, are you listening?

[quote=Steve Henderson;5199593]Why do you assume Bloc Party "signed up"? Like there is some big band chalkboard out there where bands attempt to drop dibs on the next teeniebopper show?

That's unfair. As I said in an earlier post, MTV wouldn't load on my screen. If the story is that the guy had a collpsed lung (what from, for pete sake?), and they left the tour for that, it...

So, I haven't seen the whole article, but if the premise of the bitch session is that Brandon Urie didn't pal up with the guy like he would have hoped, well too frickin bad. Man up, and quit yer...

MTV's site has so many popups and bs, the article won't even load up. Here is where the article ends on my screen:

When I first heard this, I was on a road trip and got to play it all the way through in one listen. I liked it a lot, but by the end, I was a little exhausted.

I still like it a lot, but it's not...

It's good to know rock history. I love the clips in this video that show him playing in the "olden" days. Particularly, I love the clips from the 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue, where he wears white face...

I think this should all give us even more respect for the toughness of guitar players. I mean, these guys go out, night after night, and endure the pain. I can't imagine having to deal with the type...
