The album was outstanding and produced the pop hit “Lets Go” but deeper were the good ones like “It’s All I Can Do”, vocalist Ric Ocasek struck a gangly pose as the leader of shagdoo boys. I ate it with a spoon. Funny side note I hug out with a guy who went to Tufts and had some Bostonian encounters with the guys, cool huh? Two degrees of separatio

Why the hell aren’t they touring acoustic? Save the strain and the backing tracks, the pops can sit on stools and relax and they sound fabulous. Just a thought but it seems to me a much better way to celebrate their history than trying to pretend your 20 when you’re 70.
Oh Cher, you’re so hip. At age 68 shes the slutty grandma we’re glad we don’t have. More surgery’s than a conjoined twin and as delusional as a dementia patient shes up in arms about the park and her tweets are blatheringly endearing.
A trip down memory lane will take you to Frank Sinatras ‘bobby soxers’ or the insane screams and swoons for Elvis Presley. Girls (and guys) so caught up in the euphoria of their hero that they complete lose control of their facilities. I have never been transported to that level.
Well ya know.. nothing worse than an aging goth. The pale pallor coupled with the jowls let alone the shaved off brows- its a recipe for ewww and Manson is smack dab in the middle of it.
Look none of us are getting any younger, I get it. And dudes that whole bladder control thing can be a slap in the pride but the fact of the matter is- when did it become ok to piss on the stage? Well GG Alin had no issue but Gene Simmons?
eems the case with many- imagine if the band had gotten as big as One Direction, they’d be overdosed in an alley. You either have what it takes to survive in the racket or you don’t- apparently Way does not. The cool thing is he is totally OK with it
It’s just another example of a few bad apples ruining things for everyone else. I’ve never seen any forms of real dangerous violence at Warped Tour, and I have watched some of the heaviest band throughout the years that I’ve gone. Sure, anyone in the pit is gonna get a bit beat up, but that’s what they’re there for
If youre a regular joe working class stiff the only thing good about this week is that its a 4 day run til you can get the hell out of your job and go drink or sleep. Americans will cook on a grill wave a flag and puke up Coors in the name of Freedom.
The odds of you seeing this film anywhere but Netflix in a few months is slim to none unless you have an art cinema in LA or something. Die hard fans will love it and the rest of us will go..’ wait remember Birthday Party….”
For a guy with a minimal musical career he sure is able to keep his name in the news. This time though its not for some dumbass reality show but rather for a do-gooder photo opp.
Morrissey fans love the man for his sheer ability to connect to people at the heart. For anyone to impersonate him is ridiculous. Moz is infamous for his dismissive nature, but not cruelty, especially to those fans whose spent cash pay his mortgage
Are ya kiddin me? Can it be that a crowd can harass an artist so well that the show wont go on? Seems that’s exactly what happened with Rick Ross- and its sorta pathetic.
Very rarely is there such a genuinely kind and easy going person in an industry built on ego. Lets face it a kid with that sort of face could be an arrogant dick- but he is nothing of the sort
No one likes an idiot but if you cant control your drug intake or remember to drink water you simply are a jack ass and your great reward is making your parents cry. Then again they raised the idiot so I suppose what comes around goes around, dig?
There is a sound that comes from the Specials that no other ‘ska’ band can produce. A more scumbag sound filled with Brit slang and cliche’ that sends out the image of working class drudge. Unlike bands like Madness or Selector who often sound up for fun
Its VERY difficult to cast something like this- the faces so completely embedded in peoples minds that to have anyone attempt to resemble always come off campy. Of course some shows go the other way and make no effort- which is just as bad.
There are parents who condone his bullshit and actually wait for months to sign their kids up for his summer camp. Pathetic back woods trailer trash neanderthals who sign there kids up for the ‘great outdoors’ ‘camp’ and allow their spawn learn to shoot and hunt
Consider this, Alice Cooper is 66 years old. He has been squeezing into the leather to chop off heads and sing creepy songs for so many decades its unreal. He is actually about to tour on the Motley Crue farewell tour- only he isnt even going to say farewell- the dude is unstoppable
Look every now and then its a good idea to throw out a post title that will stop you in your tracks. The word penis is funny enough, ‘burning penis’ conjures up the image of odd bacterias and clinic trips. Blythe, the man who just beat the insane Manslaughter charges in the Czech Republic proves he is not only in good spirits but a pretty open guy
We know that band mates Jessie Tobias and Boz Borer have piped in their words on the whole scandal.. but “OI! Wheres Morrissey?” Not a peep. Not a soy sausage, and if you’re like me you’re worried.
He threw it down last week with a no fuss statement on his desire to be inducted into the HOF, “I don’t want to get in there when I’m 85-years old. I’ll tell them to drop dead, so you better do it quick while I’m still smiling,” Checker said
Summer is in full swing and you should be outside around a bonfire or something. Instead you’re munching Cheetos from a bag in your underwear with the air conditioner on full blast suffering from insomnia as you worry about your job or some other nonsense.
So I say this. Everyone shut up. No one cares, the tour is cancelled the fire is smoldering and life goes on. Buy the new album when it comes out next month and sit the hell down.
Tacky? Hell yes it is mostly because they “need to be sold”. The good news is it isn’t his teeth or other absurd artifacts as we have seen with other artists- this is guitars, racks and assorted stage gear.
Is it just for attention? Is it adrenaline, stupidity, desperation? I guess the theatrics are something I will never understand but what I can tell you with full conviction is if some band threw blood on me, security would be very busy pulling me off the stage as I kicked their asses.
Lost is an interesting adjective, it simply has not been played since 1929. A rarity of the highest form and for Porter fans a glimpse into their idols less known works. With Showgirls and tap dancing a full out old time production.
“I feel quite passionate that anything that encourages people in music, just to see people with enthusiasm having fun even though they’re all different abilities… rise to the occasion, it’s fantastic!”
Roger Daltrey – The Who
So now Jack White issues this public apology for bad behavior and I cant help but wonder why he is being such a pussy. C’mon already with the apologetic bullshit when we all know it was meant- and that it’s ok to feel as you do. In support of his upcoming release Lazzaretto, he is on a press junket providing an interviewers dream
Silly that ‘late night’ TV has become such a drag When you’re up late at night with insomnia you should be treated to new sounds and disturbing images not the same artists who appear in soda commercials. Unfortunately thats not the case at al
So The Adams Family has released a new song and performed it on Conan June 11th. Luckily Gomez and Morticia stopped speaking in French long enough to get this twangy tune in the can. It seems Gomez is no longer able to shower and is boycotting the barber, Morticia has been sucking on helium so much it’s hard to recognize her voice any more.
Squeeze was and will always be one of the most memorable bands of the 80s to this day I adore their work and find myself belting out random lyrics at the oddest times. Granted, this tour is not Squeeze but just the blonde guy but still- he was the pipes so you can be sure he’s throwing in some classics and that alone is reason to attend.
The rumors are that his ‘medical team’ deemed it necessary. Now lets see, Moz was happy, laughing, giddy and slurring words when we saw him in Boston-was he under the influence of something? I honestly do not think so but what the hell do I know without a urine sample.
On the press junket for his soon to be released album Lazaretto he’s babbling like a brook about just about anything. He got a bit introspective and somewhat melancholy over youth- it’s not as if he’s in the twilight of his days but hey let the man chat
Although the tune came out in 1965 this video is from 1967 and may well be one of the most incredibly awkward videos of all time. But honestly this just adds to the magic of the tune. So first off THANK YOU Mozzah for introducing me to a great artist!
Boston you didn’t disappoint. Your notoriously my least favorite city and when the crowd started walking out (for lack of hits) or sitting down or dashing out (during Meat Is Murder) your lack of fandom and lack of manners and couth were showing. But it wasn’t meant for you- it was meant for us.
Fall Out Boy is on Ellen. That’s the oddest thing to me. Pop punk old men are sitting on her couch. Im not sure why I find this so striking, they’re not exactly ‘Alternative’ but for some reason I still consider them lesser known.. I have a mental block with them.
Musically its cheap and bland and Boz really? Can you throw some of the Polecat spirit in it? You don’t have to be the backdrop here if you don’t want to – its not Mozzer, this is your baby..why are you so diluted in your moment to shine?
Do you have a vacancy for a back scrubber? Kristeen Young packs up and goes home
the engagement in Atlantic City at the Revel Ovation Hall has been postponed to Sunday, June 22. All previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new date. The tour will resume as originally scheduled, without question, at the Boston Opera House on Saturday, June 7
Some overly sensitive souls were screaming that the get up was mocking the Jews…are you fucking kidding me? Photos from the concert show Macklemore wearing a black wig and beard and a fake hooked nose. Which we all know screams “Mock a Jew” at the highest level.
Earlier today Mozzer was spotted chatting up some British football players in the lobby of his Miami hotel.. could it be? I mean someone just said Miami is the ‘Gay Mecca of The South”.. is he having too much fun?
The Decemberists are part of that granola eating plain scene who bitch and moan about photos and videos. If you are one of their deciples youre going to honor their request- if you are like Rebecca Bohanan the chick who ballsed up and taped a couple tunes in Portland last week, you reap the rewards of capturing a fine tune.
I wasn’t expecting this kind of response to a comment I made, but it has been a wakeup call and has radically altered my own views as to how I want to live in this world. I always try to do what I think is right. I’ve always been very vocal and opinionated, but this experience with the media has not been positive, nor productive.
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.
There is talk that the show would basically have to sell out at every stop in order to stay out of the red- was it poor ticket sales causing the halt? Not sure but if the below video is any indication…things were pretty rough.
Some of you may know and even less of you may care that Bret is a massive diabetic. He has been out their preaching (when he’s not dying of course) and fundraising for research dollars at every moment he gets.
The best act of the week is once again on Jimmy Fallon although I’ve just about had enough of him (our local morning news feels obligated to blast his ‘funniest bit’ over and over on the hour)he scored the coolest chick in music, Chrissie Hynde.
THE BLUEBLACK HUSSAR is an insightful documentary that follows Adam Ant during his obsessively driven comeback of 2011 after battling mental illness, sectioning and public acrimony.
Robert Plant is saying there will be no reunion so there you have it– and thank God. Let the legends remain pristine the last thing we need is to see Plant with a sock in his Depends singin’ “Whole Lotta Love”..ew.
