The Rolling Stones have two dates at the SoFi Stadium
a powerful rock & roll performance
‘It was a perfect way to spend lockdown. It made me do Rockdown!’
’It’s intimate, it’s engaging, it’s seamless’
in response to the terrible decision taken by the Trump administration
It’s got groove, man. To me, it’s like our David Bowie’s Let’s Dance record
‘The youth today should continue to destroy all that is Babylon and thrive for a new way’
Dave Grohl even showed up
It was a bad situation getting worse
‘My name is Dave Grohl, and I’m writing on behalf of the local music group Black Leaves of Envy.’
‘his response was “If you’re asking rather i think he was murdered or not. the answer is YES.’
‘I’m a lot of things, but one thing I’m not doing is sitting next to the phone in curlers, waiting for Dave Grohl to call me, you know? ‘
‘who was your saddest celebrity encounter?’
After a week of trashing Grohl, here is a little balance for ya. Grohl, the ultimate nice guy
‘The shows we’ve been doing lately are our favorite shows that we’ve ever done. What seemed like a setback at the time has turned into this beautiful blessing in disguise, where this throne and these crutches and these audiences make us play longer and harder than we ever have. It’s this whole new energy in the show… I think the spontaneity of this situation we’re in right now just brings out a smile in everyone.’
Round are way, all hell has broken out after the world at large decided I was wrong to claim David Fricke was a company stooge. Of course, that wasn’t the first time I claimed Fricke was in Wenner’s pocket… this is the first time I claimed Fricke was a company stooge… in April 2011… I think it stands up nicely
‘You’ve got more attention on that Saturday night set from Kanye than maybe anything else. Who knows what will happen? He could walk out there and have 100,000 people bottle him on stage or he could walk out there and show the world that nothing else matters except for that moment. And I’m sure that is what he will do.’
If one more person comes up to me today and says “get a life Lababedi”, I’m gonna play the new Dawes album on their ass till they beg for forgiveness. I wanted a life and I got a life and heavy knows I was miserable, so instead of spending my life getting it, I shall spend my life doing completely ridiculous wastes of time like this: imagining what the days of the week would be if they were rock stars
Super Group Teenage Time Killers, Featuring Every Metal-Hardcore Band That Exists, To Release Album Soon
From what I get, this sounds like a sort of live aid for metal-hardcore veterans without the aid, and of course the songs were recorded at Grohl’s studio 606 in the Los Angeles valley, on the famous Sound City mixing board, according to Kerrang
And his train of thought is totally contradictory, my fans are gone but ‘My position as an artist has basically not changed in a world’? Well, if you don’t have fans anymore… But that wasn’t it, Billy visited the Howard Stern show and basically dissed a few of his peers
I’ll see a young band like them become that popular and think, ‘Please God, don’t let them self-destruct’. Because it happens, you know. But they seem like a band of brothers. Those four dudes seem like they’re doing really well and will be for a while.’
“At its core I believe the issue is really about what a great country we have that a song like this can be performed in a setting like Concert for Valor.’
‘Can I tell a director of photography how to frame a shot? No. But my biggest job as a director is to just sort of excite and cheerlead a group of people to find that one common goal or vision. I can convince people. I can convince people to do lots of things.
When musicians become actors or worse TV hosts its never a good thing. There seems to be a false sense of glory for rockers- just because they’ve had some success they feel they can act, and model, and host and really now c’mon, stick to your day job.
‘It was the Hall of Fame ceremony, but it meant so much to all of us personally that sometimes you forgot about the other stuff — like the arena and the trophy — and focused on real, personal things. I saw Courtney walking past [earlier in the night], and I just tapped her on the shoulder and we looked at each other in the eyes and that was it — we’re just family
Marvel came first and then DC, but also Archie, Harvey, Mad Magazine and from their I graduated to an appetite for all things sci fi. So to connect the two was obvious though I have been beaten to it as the drawing illustrating this story attests in no uncertain terms.
It might not be fair to lay the blame for the hell that is 21st century rebellion at his feet, but he personifies it so perfectly. He is such a cheerful shill for organized crime known as the music business, it offends me to look at me. Grohl is the rock and roll star as Amway salesman.
“This is a great honor. Thank you to the people who nominated and voted for us. Thank you most of all to Kurt Cobain. And to everyone who’s kept rock music going strong for 60 years and counting.”
