_Too Dark Park_ & _Last Rights_ are two of my favorite albums of all time. They provided a dark and haunting sonic atmosphere for a special period in my life, when I first identified with the term Satanist.

You just made me take one hell of a Double Take! Michael and Janet Jackson? Never would have expected that at all.

Why not? They make good music.

I also like Earth, Wind & Fire, Rick James, David Bowie, Robert Plant (including post-Zep), Van Morrison, America, Run DMC, Public Enemy, Grim Reaper, Dusty Springfield, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Abba, Al Green, Frank Sinatra, the Conan soundtrack (Basil Pouledoris), Rob Zombie, and lots of classical music (but I cannot identify them by tune yet).

But I never liked Aerosmith, and I'm totally burned on AC/DC - if I never hear Back In Black again, it'll be too soon.

And of course all country music just sucks. Except for maybe Hank Williams, Sr.

How many takes is that?

Ok...gotta go there....LMFAO!
Nah, none of those surprised me. I guess those two just wasn't something I was expecting. I know how you feel about AC/DC, and quite frankly, after my younger sister replayed Thriller at least 100 times a day when I was a teen, I feel the same way about Michael Jackson. Janet had a couple of decent teen songs, but beyond that, I couldn't really get into her music.

I have to tell you, I like David Bowie's music, especially some of the stuff he put out for the movie Labyrinth, his Little Drummer Boy (Peace on Earth) medley that he did with Bing Crosby, and even his duet Dancing in the Streets with Mick Jagger . BTW, one of the BEST concerts I ever saw was the Stones, who at the time I really didn't care for at all. They rocked the house for more than 2 1/2 hours and the place was standing and singing right along with them the WHOLE time. To boot, the crowd ranged from 9 year olds (or about that) to guys with walkers that could have passed for my great grandpa at that time. They earned my respect that day.

As for Robert Plant (post-Zep), I liked his music too, until I saw him in concert. The show was extremely short (under an hour total stage time) and what he did to the songs, just completely blew. I wouldn't go to another show of his if it was FREE.

Yeah, two different things. Listen to the music - don't pay attention to concerts, scandals, VH1 exposes, etc. Just listen to the music.

I never cared what anybody did outside the song. Every celebrity has drug stories, sex stories, crime stories, Entertainment Tonight and The Enquirer stories ... Michael Jackson may or may not have been a child molester, I don't care - I don't know him, I'm not voting for him, I just like his music.

How does the saying go? Average people talk about events, great people talk about ideas, small people talk about people.

I know what you mean. I enjoy a good concert, but I was ruined at a young age. 13 and my first rock concert was Kiss, with Queensryche opening for them. I can't even count how many concerts I've been to since then. I've known a few bands and my favorite times where when they would practice in a garage or a basement. I think that's why I've always liked concerts. My favorite concert was Bad Company and Triumph. I've always been a huge fan of both bands and to see them in one show was "It" for me. Triumph had one hell of a light show. I don't care what the latest gossip is about the bands or singers. I just want to enjoy them playing and putting on a good show. If they're having a good time performing, all the better for me!

I love most of what Robert has done since Zep. Although I've been to his shows in the past, I decided to pass up on his recent tour because he is performing the songs he feels like doing , instead of what most fans want to hear. He doesn't give a shit( his pocketbook is not hurting), and the fans will still come into the show, to hear an acoustic version of "thank you" for the one millionth time.

I still harbor an irrational small sliver of hope that one day he will reach out to his former bandmates and gives us the tour we want (Robert is the only holdout preventing a Zep reunion), but I sure won't be holding my breath.

"Never a horse that couldn't be rode and never a cowboy that couldn't be throwed."

That pretty much covers every man, woman, singer, writer, actor... you name it. People are fickle to be sure, and today's superstars often wind up seeming like the bizarre and grotesque Norma Desmond, mind gone and still performing, coming screen forward and moaning "All right, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up," in the 1950 production of HOLLYWOOD BOULEVARD.

EVERYONE has their personal moment of "jumping the shark," when their career is on the downhill slopes. In this case, musicians, especially hugely popular ones, have this moment magnified like a particle in the view of the nuclear powered microscope of fandom. You MUST be better than your last effort... but it MUST be the same. You can't deviate and hurt the fans, because they loved you as that innovative and music-forward rock star that broke them out or their doldrums. But now... stay the same. You belong to US, and our $15.95 for your latest CD gives us godlike powers to condemn you to hell for singing one single note of which we don't approve.

Ricky Nelson sang it best in his song "Garden Party." "If memories were all I sang, I'd rather drive a truck; but it's all right now. I learned my lesson well. You see, you can't please everyone, so you've got to please yourself."

We criticize and condemn those who take the formulaic route in writing and in music and in the graphic arts... where is that boldness? Where is the innovation? Don't you have the guts to do anything different? And then, as soon as they do, we damn them for all eternity on that one result we find disappointing. But at least THEY TRIED! THEY ACTUALLY TRIED! All we did was waste a few bucks on a disc of plastic.

Said it before and it bears repeating. Babe Ruth held not only the record for home runs, but the record for strike outs as well. He TRIED.

All we did was waste a few bucks on a disc of plastic.

During times I was into the gigs and active in the amateur bands who asked me, I noticed there was a certain trend in which most of them tried to be innovative.
The problems that occured were:
a) They tried and used new sounds to make different numbers, but it didn't appeal to the crowds or the different music labels (even the small ones) to actually bring out a disc from these people.
b) they TRIED to be innovative but in the wrong direction. My former group from which I resigned is the perfect example. They try to become famous by being "innovative". But what they understand here is the use of already known sound effects and simply raising the volume on their speakers. Most of the time it is a very crappy sound (even scratching your nails on a chalkboard is more appealing). There was/is a certain understanding in most new bands that to be innovative you have to scream your lungs out of your body so you can't at least speak for a week, only to get that high-pitched sound which resembles a pig to be slaughtered.

The case of b) is one of the cases which occur most. Many new found groups try to combine different sorts of music (I guess the people here are familiar with terms such as "metalcore", "progressive grindcore",...). Sadly enough most of these attempts already exist and the new "sound" they want to create is already existant for ages. So far the innovative part.

I'm currently writing numbers which are a bit more on the odd side. Things such as a combination of Jamaican music with rock, GOA with a slight hint of drum and base,..

Anyway, the last band I would more or less call "innovative" would be Tenacious D. Credits to those who have tried, but sometimes things just sound bad no matter how hard you try.
