Eh, you can only funk and pop bass so long until it just all sounds the same/people get burnt out.
Little Feat, Down on the Farm. I'm not a big fan of Time Loves a Hero either.
Live, one of the worst shows I ever saw was Johnny Winter about 20ish years ago. The guy was practically comatose. A roadie had to put the guitar around his neck.
Not only that, but he has been a coach and mentor to a lot of other people in other bands since, namely talking fatherly sense into up and comers with substance abuse problems.
He's doing the good and respectable work.
Anything from Queen after 1980
WORST son EVER
Not so much because of their music, but because of their Halloween costumes that one year...
I was there but left before the Stones came on… bad vibes
I agree with your assessment but not your timeline.
I honestly think One Hot Minute is a great album in so many ways and I realize thinking that is not allowed anywhere.
Then when John came back for Californication we got the first single(Scar Tissue) and it was toned down and bleak and introspective, but I really liked
it and thought "Hell, BSSM had Under the Bridge, which ticks about the same boxes". I felt a bit bleak generally around those times anyway.
Then the second single(Around the World) dropped and HELL YEAH, we're back in business!!! THIS is what RHCP is all about!
Then I heard the following singles(Californication and Otherside) and yeah... no. Aaaannd... as history has shown, these two tracks became
the de facto blueprint for absolutely fuggin everything they've ever done since.
For me it's the Beatles playing 'Don't Let Me Down' on the roof.
I really hate that song, for some reason.
One of my favourite bands has something of a history of substance abuse and infighting. This led to a few debacles. UFO. Fine band. Not in the early/mid 80's they weren't. One show would be top of the game, this is UFO!. The following day, alcohol and adjacency-creators would lead to a shambling, rambling debacle of bad tempered slop-rock.
I took my then girlfriend to see them for the 'Mechanix' tour, and they were wasted beyond acceptable. This, sadly, was also UFO.
Hard to beat that one. I became a fan 35 years ago and practically learned the guitar by playing along to CCR records. I think I've listened to Mardi Gras all the way through once or twice, while wearing out several copies of the other albums.
The first single of Californication was Around The World, not Scar Tissue; wasn’it ?
In fact, since the first time I had it (in 1992), I never change my mind about BSSM : amazing album ! Except Under The Bridge (I allways find it boring), I love all tracks of that album. 14 supa mega hits to me!
After that album, for me, I find that there are fewer and fewer songs that I like to listen to over the albums.
Queen Body Language is as bad as it gets.
U2 (not that they were ever a favorite) but Lemon, come guys, wtf?
Yes ZZTop’s post ZZTOP phase was rough, boy!
KISS aren't my favorite band by any means, but this clip is so Spinal Tap-ian that it makes me laugh.
That Amy Winehouse clip is sad. Tragic, really.
The Who at Live Aid... or wait... maybe Zeppelin at Live Aid.
I can't decide which was worse.
Agreed. Ironically I was watching a clip Of Detroit Rock City Last night. I believe it was taken from the current (or last) tour (whatever...)
There's a fast descending bass run in DRC that can't be missed. The camera happened to be on Gene Simmons' fret hand when it was time for the run. I heard the run but his hand didn't move!
They're obviously miming the backing tracks. I think they're actually vocalizing (notice I didn't say singing) because I don't remember the record being that awful.
They're little more than rock & roll theater, AWFUL rock & roll theater... loose wigs and all!
Hang it up boys, you're embarrassing yourselves!
I believe Phil when he says they'll be doing exactly that, which is why I'm going to see them next month in Charlotte. Yes, it's sad to see him unable to stand through the performance, but I haven't had the chance to see them live in 34 years so I'm taking this one last gasp with them. My buddy from high school (who I saw them with the first time) is making the trip, so we'll be book-ending it.
Speaking of Spinal Tap, did you see the platform issues Kiss had just over a week ago? And 'Paul's' mishap is funny as hell. But I do believe that's a cover band.
Can't trust those hydraulic platforms.
I wondered about the hair clip, it seemed like a small stage. Good tribute/cover band, though. Makeup covers many things but not missing hair.
