2006-10-13 [Son of Northern Darkness]: *gasp* you mean led lepplin made a song other than stairway(the most overrated guitar solo ever)?? im being sarcastic i too listen to more than just stairway
2006-10-16 [Venus 53]: yeh. stairway's an orrite song but they did heaps of other stuff and u can't judge a band by one song, especially not a famous one.
2006-10-16 [Jeed]: oi this place sucks
2006-10-16 [Son of Northern Darkness]: Yeah the solo on Dazed and Confused is awsome, i love it,
2006-10-18 [the synth music geek]: meh I'm just tired of arguing with kids in my area, who call themselves great guitar players, because they can play the "Stairway" intro or "Smoke on the Water"
2006-10-18 [Son of Northern Darkness]: Smoke on the water is the easiest intro ever... actually Come as you are by Nirvana is easier but hell they barely qualify for a band anyway
2006-10-19 [the synth music geek]: meh. in terms of songwriting, i think they've earned the respect. i mean, even band/orch directors, think they were good. but with the exception of Dave, they weren't musicians that set the bar high, as far as playing their instruments.
2006-10-19 [the synth music geek]: i think it was good that they actualy, seperated the guitar and bass parts, whereas today, the bass and the guitar play the same notes.
2006-10-20 [Mr. Crowley]: works great with Sabbath though...
but then again, the new bands can't be compared with Sabbath...
2006-10-20 [Son of Northern Darkness]: eh, i think Nirvana was the most overated band ever,
2006-10-25 [the synth music geek]: i agree. i honestly think it was kurt's death, that secured their imortal status. and now every generation of piss off kids can "relate" to his music forever.
2006-10-25 [deranged-bugosh]: this might piss a lot of people off...but the beatles were way overrated as well. given i love the beatles, but they were
2006-10-25 [Son of Northern Darkness]: the beatles are immortal, im not a fan, but i respect what they did for music. but they wouldnt be able to stand up to todays musicians, but then again without them we wouldnt have todays music, and yeah now every emo can slit their wrists while listening to Kurt bitch about how shitty his life is, Guitar World did the top one hundred greatest guitar albums ever, andNevermind was number 8. WHAT THE FUCK???? Kurt was so god awful on guitar, i couldnt believe it, there was no Dragonforce, and no B.B. King, i was pissed
2006-10-25 [Mr. Crowley]: yeah...
makes me wonder who makes those lists...
they're always fucked, rolling stone magazine makes just as fucked lists...
2006-10-25 [Son of Northern Darkness]: yeah, Zepplin 4 was number one, GNR's Appitite was two, Hendrix had one at 3 Metallica's Puppets was 4,
2006-10-25 [.Toxic Valentine.]: *sings* cos its the pick of destiny child ....
2006-10-25 [Son of Northern Darkness]: WTF????
2006-10-26 [the synth music geek]: i also believe that the same principle "sudden death equals everlasting fame" applies to Lennon. because his career was sort of slagging. "Imagine" for example, reached number 6 and number 3 in the UK and the US, respectively. It was then re released the MONTH he died, and it reached number 1.
i think both bands deserve credit for there work. but i think the reason why there aren't a whole lot of good rock bands, these days, is because, EVERYONE is trying to get back to basics and trying to be like Bob Dylan or Jimmy Page. and the one thing that happens in all of this, is that a lot of rock and roll artists, that are similar to others in talent, and only become famous, because they manage to strike a chord (no pun intended) with the right fans (the ones that will "hustle" for them).
I think Frank Zappa said it best when said, "I don't care whether I'm remembered...a
although I admit, I'd like to be remembered for any music that I turn out, professionally
2006-10-27 [Son of Northern Darkness]: i dont know the thought of sixty thousand+ fans chanting my lyrics with me is kinda appealing.
2006-10-29 [the synth music geek]: that's why you give the PA system full power. lol. or I preform a song occasionally (parodizing Screamo music) that involves incoherent shouting of random words. you could try that, in all your songs. lol
2006-10-30 [Son of Northern Darkness]: anybody here an Opeth fan?
