So do we all agree that Kanye is an idiot?

Well, he certainly has ego. A towering, mammoth ego, greater perhaps than presidential candidates, capable of lifting small children and transporting them to another place (better or worse, one can't really say). His is an ego requiring nothing to back it, as it has itself to support it. And it has its own gravitational field, having ensnared a Kardashian at one point in its wake.

I don't know about Kanye.  I am still stuck in the past, and listening to musing from my youth.  Does anyone have any suggestions to help me break free from listening to bands that are not from the late 70's to middle 80's?  Some of them are still in the business, but it is less and less these days (TMBG, Violent Femmes, Devo, Black Flag etc...)  Infrequent releases, in-fighting, squabbles over advertising conflicts with who is vegan or not.  Too confusing and or high drama.

Jack Conte comes to mind. He seems like a fun musician... at least some of the stuff I've seen him post on Youtube.

That seems to happen to a lot of people. We go through a phase of "I will keep up with modern music so that I'm never seen as having outdated taste" but inevitably end up in "the new music is just such garbage, I can't listen to this stuff"

There is probably a human nature thing at work here.

Ah, I did like him with Pomplamoose (especially this one):

I need to check out the other stuff he has done.

Well, I could say that music has gone down-hill and become noise, but that would be a lie, as I liked some of that noise as a young whipper snapper.

Not sure if we are in the 2nd age of "disco sucks" or not just yet.

To want to be POTUS requires, more than anything else except stamina, an ego of herculean proportion.

Truly, it does. He has enough to make a go of it, and then some. So far, though, he hasn't deigned to consider such an undertaking.

It seems that Prince is now "The Artist Formerly Known As Schrodinger."

The Internets are simultaneously reporting that he is and is not dead.

and i came here to say, "The man formally known as alive will now be known as dead."

 

Keith Richards still survives.

Keith Richards is sustained by the death of the others

There can only be one.

I wonder if that's the reason there haven't been a lot of great new rock acts in the last few decades. Anyone who looks promising is captured by the surviving members of the Rolling Stones, and have their life force drained to sustain Richards/Jagger/Watts/Wood.

If you think about it, it all makes complete sense.

Megadeth in December '96. I don't remember the cost, but it couldn't have been too ridiculous. My friend Jon and I drove down to Sacramento (about a 12-hour drive) the day after Christmas because they'd already been through Seattle and we wouldn't get to see them otherwise. Then they added another leg to the tour so we saw them again. I think I still have the t-shirts.

I know "Stairway" and listened to the other song.
Zep is VERY VERY LUCKY they prevailed in court.

My opinion, as a musician: they stole it.

Spirit took too long. The lawsuit should have happened in the 70s.

The whole issue of statute of limitations (SOL) is convoluted, at best. Internationally it becomes even more fuzzy - just ask Andrew Lloyd Weber and the Puccini Estate.

That's all irrelevant anyway, since it falls on the Defendant to raise SOL as an Affirmative Defense. It was not raised.
