Ok so if records come out and people win free product, can we have other bands on defense to block free product so we can say something like 'Pavement's Wowee Zowee Deluxe Edition Release created a Dr. Pepper eliminating release season?' Probably not. I'm tired. Where's the tylenol?

I was just thinking on my drive home last night- what object of sonic ridicule will we have once this is released? Is anyone kind of sad that it might actually get put out?
I'm sharpening the knives as we speak. (Knives Out?)

From a female perspective (I suspect gay men are less susceptible to the charms of shaggy-haired, dirty-clothed, throbbing rock gods, but I'm open to being corrected on this), the idea of Led Zep without Plant is absolutely unthinkable. I mean, please.
I was always more of a Jimmy Page girl myself (that is, until I saw the clip below, which forever ruined any bad-boy rock fantasies I'd ever had about him), but for many women Led Zep *was* Robert Plant sewn into impossibly tight jeans. I believe Courtney Love used that image as the centerpiece of her argument that rock is nothing without cock. It would be like the New Power Generation touring without Prince. Outrageous.
The lust-dampening (and not in a good way) Jimmy Page clip:

It depends - like straight women, we all have our types.

Ask dj hubris, dyedon or mahatma chani - the New Power Generation HAVE toured without Prince - they are called STONE MECCA. and no - it's not pretty.

Cheers, TFC - I stand corrected.

Though it is true that there aren't very many gay shaggy-haired, dirty-clothed, throbbing rock gods to choose from. A friend of mine always manages to find them, but he lives in SF, which is where they must all be at : )

Is this the cute Rivers Cuomo-looking singer I met at your housewarming? I *knew* we had a connection somehow. :o)

The Rivers Cuomo comparison is throwing me off, but I think that's him, yes.

He was flattered when I mentioned it to him, saying that usually he gets Mr Rogers comparisons.
Incidentally, he told me I look like Belinda Carlisle...

Chuck Klosterman reviews "Chinese Democracy" for "The Onion."
Mahatma Chani sends you the final version of "Chinese Democracy" a week before you can buy it at Best Buy.
I kinda like it.

FWIW, Rolling Stone / David Fricke gave it 4 stars.
I haven't heard it yet - I will have to wait to see if I shouldn't have bagged on it so much.
If it is anywhere near as good as Metallica's Death Magnetic, I would say it has been a good and interesting year for "major" rock acts, whatever that means.
Cooksey's Bad Tazzes don't make it online:
"I love the new songs," says Bill Cooksey, a 28-year-old from Lynn who has three Guns N' Roses tattoos, performed in a GNR tribute band, and proposed to his wife during GNR's 2002 concert at the Garden.

Has anyone read The Heroin Diaries yet? I picked it up in an airport a few weeks ago, and am interested in what others have to say about it.

I resisted the urge to buy it in hardcover. I did, however, read Slash's autobiography, which was awesomely entertaining. Next: Stephen Davis's Gn'R book.
