That's just, like, your opinion, man.
Jeff, I'm cool with the NMH fans who disagreed with Levine's review -- differing opinions are fine, and I prefer them to everyone patting everyone else on the back.
But when readers like the commenter who couldn't stand to have his/her perceptions of Mangum challenged, and thus said of our writer "fuck him" (and since had his/her comment deleted), I'm not particularly concerned about their feelings.
Also, considering that the NMH reunion announcement was big enough to merit a fairly visible post on some of the most visible blogs in the country, I'm willing to call this "news with a slightly lengthy aside."
Dude, seriously? This article isn't "news", if you actually consider this article worthy "content" I simply can't help you. You think the fact that this small circle of friends has decided to play together again proves/changes anything about Jeffs motive for touring? Correlation =/= causation. I stand by all of my analysis on the other thread. This article is a shameful, cowardly cheap shot that contributes nothing. Frankly, you sound like a petulant child. I KNOW exactly where Jeff's head is at in all this. It astounds me that any magazine would allow its writers to taunt prospective readers like this. Seriously- I'm utterly flabbergasted.
I'm stoked for The Killers <3
I meant Blake Shelton. Sorry. I guess my mind slipped into thinking of something more pleasant than contemporary country music for a moment.
Most contemporary country artists and their music are interchangable anyways. If you enjoy Tim McGraw then you probably enjoy Kenny Chesney or Alan Jackson or Blake Lively or George Strait or...I could go on forever.
In simpler terms, most of this stuff has the same variant as the amount of days in a year. If we're lucky we might find a true original in one out of every four artist or songs, but in all reality it is far less than that even. WAY far less.
They are a force to be reckoned with.
Minus the bear!!! GETCHYA OMNI ON YALL!
$41.00 after that date. Just went and bought 2 of them ! :) can't wait.
Michael, since I have returned to Arizona, where I was born 65 years ago, I have been looking for a quiet way to contact Linda. We briefly were enrolled at Catalina high school at the same time and, although my sister was an friend of Bob Kimmel, I was never introduced to Linda. If she would like the yearbook that she has a picture of her prior to leaving for LA I would be more than happy to give it to her. Post your email on this thread if she is interested (it would be a gift, as one tucsonian to another)
OK, this article, and my original response, are months old, but I've come back a few times to see if there were any additional comments. Every time I look at my original reply I realize I forgot a couple of other points.
Your "humor" about original members of Lynyrd Skynyrd being "eaten by alligators" after the plane crash, is tacky and tasteless. If these were musicians you held in higher esteem, I doubt you would make such a remark. Whether you like their music or not, human beings with families and friends died in the plane crash. It's not something to poke fun at.
You make comment of how with all your musical training, you wish you could be as dumb (you dont use these words but might as well have) as the audience so you could appreciate the music. Well, the members of southern rock bands are trained, knowledgeable musicians. They didn't just wake up one morning and decide to pick up a guitar and play. I obviously can't speak to each band member's background, but I know for instance that Billy Powell, the original keyboard player for Lynyrd Skynyrd, was classically trained. This "well *I* know SO much more than anyone else, and only people who know nothing about music could enjoy this" crap is absurd elitist garbage. Open your mind a bit and don't judge people who play and enjoy music you don't happen to like. You aren't better than them, really.
Sorry then I misconstrued. Prince does what Prince wants. :-)
$250 plus fees is gonna be a pricey show
I don't think I'm dragging his name down, that's certainly not my intention. Especially if he's an actual doctor.
I just want to be able to buy some tickets without going on an online scavenger hunt. That's all.
Dr Funkenberry is a known insider to the Prince and NPG camp. He does not post or leak rumors; only solid confirmed information. Your snarky frustrations with the purple one shouldn't drag Dr Funkenberry's name down.
