  1. They focus way too much on the korns and bizkits .. what was happening during Dave Matthew’s set? There were quite a few mellow bands there as well
  2. I guess the basic premise is that back in the 70s 80s etc you had SO many famous musicians that write great, groundbreaking music and also were famous.. the Eddie Van Halen’s and Eric Claptons and jimmy pages.. great players and artists and also household names where kids looked up to their musicianship
  3. Another great video from Rick beato. Musicianship isn’t revered like it once was..
  4. Much like Rush and Zepprlin, he was a huge presence with that band. The parts could be played but his presence and stage personality can’t be replaced.
  5. Nothing special but they put out enjoyable rock music and have been at it for 25 years. Grohl is a great ambassador for rock music in a sea of Billie eilish garbage . So I’ve always liked them. The colour and the shape is one of the great 90s albums.
  6. Saw the Facebook post from the official foo fighters page minutes after it was posted and I thought their page was hacked or something.. really shocking. He was a great solid rock drummer. Grohl must be just devastated.
  7. Was Eddie’s impact on rock guitar as immediate and explosive as people claim it to be? You will read articles about how after the debut everyone was looking to play like that , but is that true? Any forum members who were around then care to share their experiences from that time period?
  8. Not too nitpick, but I’d like her to play that on the same size kit Neil did in the TS video.. she’s obviously gifted but that’s not anything like the original

    Hating Rush

    It’s all about aesthetics. Rush didn’t follow the blueprint of punk rock and fitting in with a particular “ scene” they were 3 nerds from Canada who wrote sci fi epics and the Ayn Rand influence didn’t help . They were just never considered cool , and in any music scene that’s huge. It’s why someone like Joan Jett gets more respect than rush , because she’s considered “ cool “
  10. In the world of drumming, swing is king , and if you can’t swing and play with groove, you may be looked at as a hack. Peart was clinical and compositional in his approach. The burning for buddy project really showed how glaringly bad he was at swing. Will Calhoun handed him his ass in a drum off.
  11. Always felt he was too good for Moon. He could have easily fit into a prog/ jazz fusion band.
  12. David Lee Roth's brush with art Diamond Dave is awesome. Still chasing his muse. Badass. Hell yeah.
  13. David Lee Roth's brush with art Say what you will about Roth, but the guy has grabbed life by the balls and lived it. He’s a true original.
  14. I think they are similar in that they influenced a generation to to play guitar and drums, but outside of that I think they are vastly different people. Eddie was more spontaneous in his approach to music. Neil was clinical. Eddie was obviously a far more exuberant live performer. He was a rock god. Neil was a stoic figure.
  15. Wait really? That was the centrum? I have never heard that . Wow
