I don't see RR as dead, ever.....it HAS begun to look as though it stays in a nursing home, with fewer visitors coming to see how it's doing. There will always be some folks coming by to see it's being treated well....

So...


Rock isnt dead.  Although an argument could be made that it is...or should be.
But it's not dead.


However...


If you were to pick when it died when would you pick?
I wouldn't say it was when the Miss American Pie went down or when Lennon was shot.


I might pick when Cobain shot himself for reasons that are too long to go into.  It's not because they were such a great band.
I might pick when they cut the ribbon on the RR Hall of Fame groundbreaking ceremony.
I might pick when the Pistols released Never Mind the Bullocks.
I might pick when The Beatles released The White Album for reasons too long to go in to.

Just briefly went over some videos after seeing that.


That is a weird band in a way; and I like weird.


Quick thoughts.  I need to look at more of their stuff for more than just a minute or two.


That band doesn't need two guitarists. 
Not everyone needs to play so much.  It creates a wall of sound that just becomes generic.
Great singing.  Great concept for a band. 
I need to hear more of this.

Progressive folk? Not sure of the classification, but I like this:

Correct, Greg....to be mentioned in the same sentence with any one of the Fabs would be as high an honor as I could musically attain. The rapper's name, incidentally , is Drake.....in ten years' time, I doubt that will be remembered.

Some rapper tattooed himself walking ahead of The Beatles because he broke some record of theirs.


It doesn't bother me.  I find human behavior interesting.  This move just screams, "I am somebody?  Right?  I'm better than everyone don't you think?"


It just seems like one of the last things to do in life would be to be so paranoid, and insecure about your own career, that you would get a tattoo making you look better, or more important than The Beatles.  And I'm not saying he isn't.  I can't remember the name of the guy nor have ever heard a song by him.  Could be Jay Z?  Idk.


Mervap, if you accomplished this feat, wouldn't you just say that it's an honor to be mentioned along side the Fabs?  ...or something to that effect?

Yeah...that deluxe edition would be so so so so great.


I might buy the LP.  I think it'd be worth it.


All that bonus cd stuff will be great.  I've got to get a listen to that somehow.

I am really looking forward to this one....both the Pepper box and the White Album box were epic...

He never gave up on them.  He pursued every avenue until Parlophone agreed to give them an audition. 
I'm not sure they could have found someone to travel to London consistently looking for someone to give them a chance.
