4 Years Ago (2017)
It was a slow start to writing during this period, so nothing was posted on the site during this week.
Remember “The Raskins” the band who paid $1 million to open for Mötley Crüe on tour, only to have the Motley Crue road crew, come on stage and spray them with urine.
Well they filed a lawsuit against the Crue on 31 August, 2014.
8 Years Ago (2013)
Cog is an Australian band from Bondi, Sydney.
And if you haven’t heard “Sharing Space”, their 2008 album, well you should. Its a post rock progressive tour de force. And read my review while you’re at it.
Fear is the virus they use to divide us
Hoping we’ll all just pretend
That there’s no other way
By 2013, I was asking what happened to Jon Bon Jovi.
Was he an artist or a CEO or a football team owner or something else entirely?
And sometimes artists forget what brings them their bread and butter?
Brad Paisley was asked, why he thinks his popularity resonates so strongly with audiences around the world, Paisley answered with the following:
“It’s always songs.”
He further adds that the minute an artist starts to think it’s them and not the songs they are singing that resonates, it is the moment that they start to think they are larger than life.
My kids love the song “Cum On Feel The Noize.”
They don’t care which version they hear (Slade or Quiet Riot), they only care about hearing the song. For me, I never went back to hear the original Slade version. I was quite content with the Quiet Riot version.
And that’s another short wrap for another week.

I think Paisley is right to some degree, but the artist does impact it as well. If you are a prick, the songs don’t really matter as no one will care (except I still don’t know Chris Brown is so popular because he has doesn’t have the songs and he hits women and yet still sales)
BJ lost the plot after ’95. Too much sap not enough rock. Jon wanted to become Mellencamp and The Boss in one. Epic fail.
