End of the road for the Warped Tour. The reason is sad

This explains those disastrous touring numbers someone posted a few days ago where nobody was drawing. "Wall-E" was prescient. http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/8038298/warped-tour-2018-final-year-kevin-lyman-interview Speaking to Billboard, founder Kevin Lyman blames a big di...

Metal songs in major keys

I could never quite figure out what it was about Abbath's "Wintebane" that I liked about it until someone in the comments section noted it was in a major key. That explained why it sounds so different. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yv-oC5zCwn8 Now I've seen the video clips of rock and me...

Re: Most intellectual rock star

I know Neil Peart likes to pretend like he's smart but if you read his lyrics and listen to him talk he's obviously just a pompous asshole who thinks reading books and repeating what you read equals intelligence. So who would you say is actually the most intelligent person in rock? I thought he was...

Re: Most intellectual rock star

Chris Lykins of the thrash band Atrophy. Considered one of the best ENT doctors in the country.

And while he can be a blowhard, Neil Peart is incredibly well-spoken in his writings. Very cerebral for a high school dropout.

Re: PLAYMATE ROOMMATE? ... 80’s Playboy Playmate Brandi Brandt in search of a room for rent in Southern California

If she is looking for a place in OC or Riverside she is FAR from the Playboy mansion. And the only Playmate I can think of who managed to have a career without being a mansion whore is Karen McDougal. She lives in Arizona, never hung out at the mansion and has a decent career as a fitness model. I l...

"Lost" albums

Do you know of any albums that were recorded but never saw the light of day? The example I'm thinking of is Forbidden's "Trapped" album. It was recorded one year after "Twisted Into Form," much of it by new guitarist Tim Calvert. The album was slower than the previous one and hig...

Is Kepler that store next to the used bookstore and across the street from a third, focused on New Age/spiritual stuff? I remember a trio of stores, new, used and religious, all next to each other on Castro, I believe.

Their drummer Jeremy is fucking brilliant. If Geddy and Alex of Rush do the proposed band Trunk hinted at, I hope they hire him. One great Toronto drummer should be replaced by another.
