Jul 16th 2010 9:54AM OUch! Hang in there Pink. What a trouper. You might want to revise that part of the act. I'm a big fan even though I'm 60 years young. But I play and write my own songs and I've played in bands forever and still do. That's how wide your audience is. I've always dug you since your second album.
In any case, keep on keeping on. I get it. And I thank you Love Dave
Jun 22nd 2010 5:31PM Very few of you know what you're talking about. Drugs have been demonized by the shapers of society. Drugs are tools and should be used as such. Some, like LSD, are considered sacraments. Just because you can't understand it and or are afraid of it keep your bigoted opinions to yourself. And don't be insulting people who were once explorers but got trapped by the vice of it. Another troubadour got trapped before he reached Bombay. So sad.
Societies have always used drugs and they will continue to use drugs. Prohibition never works it only makes matters much worse. People have to be brought up to act in a responsible manner when they are using anything that alters their state of mind. The desire for an altered state exists in all animals. I don't know about plants. But I wouldn't put it past them.
Jun 12th 2010 12:35PM I'm a much harder rocker than the Carpenters. Still, they were a great group in that they had excellent musicians on board. And Karen was such an exceptionally great singer. Peloso must've been a very good guitarist, because of the range of people he worked with. He made his exit much too soon. Sixty years of age is not old. No matter what anyone may think.
May 26th 2010 3:01PM Way to go Mr. President. It's about time someone told these floor flushing tin horns what;s what. Enough pussy footing around. Everything DuH and his friends touched turned to rat dung. And it's been going on longer than that.
Now we find out that people who are supposed to be all about law and order are snorting speed with their counterparts in the Oil Industry. They don't deserve to get high. That stuff is only for human beings who know how to handle a vice. Not for spineless toilet film who persecute people for the very vices they indulge in in a situation that they should be abstaining from. If they want to get high they can wait until they plug that damn hole they opened up in the sea floor by being cozy with company people who don't give a damn about anyone or anything but themselves.
May 16th 2010 8:24PM I want to play at Gulf Aid. I play and write good songs. I can even sing and play them. I know people like them because they used to come and watch my band play them. And it was fun.
I wish all these fellow musicians the best. I hope everybody has a blast and they raise a gazillion dollars. Especially to save the wild life.
I hope they get it broadcast nationally. If MTV still had guts and wasn't a fashion show for the globe they could get a few mobile units down there and plug in and broadcast out. Some TV producer or production company should do just that.
New Orleans musicians are great And they play many styles I'm sure much of the nation hasn't heard. Ever since the radio waves have been taken over by the monolith. An enterprising company should get bush and start recording this thing now as they build it. Footage you need footage to make a movie. It's never too early to start filming.
I'd even consider dropping everything here and showing up at the site and see if they put me to work. Or just get involved with it. You have to be there to be in it.
May 5th 2010 1:44PM Once again we are focusing on the obvious and sensational. The end result of their time in the Vault. Both characters discover how much they need each other and how much they've been through together. They find that they are by now fast friends and will remain so for life. That the friendship they share gives their lives more meaning they would have than if they didn't have their relationship.
I think the message here is how important friendship is. That's what should be thought about instead of all the silly broohaha about ingestion of feces and previously eaten food. That story line was meant to separate the wheat from the chaff. And of course all the "family values" people don't get it. Because, they've never lacked for anything. Somebody was always there to clean their little tushes from cradle to the grave.
May 3rd 2010 6:36PM That took courage. So what else is new? I love KD Lang and Mellisa. It makes no diff to me if a person's gay or straight. People can't be happy if they're not being honest with loved ones and public at large. Not that anybody has the right to know everything about anybody. But when I was a child to be "gay," or queer, was the worst thing. Nowadays people are more educated as to what that means. Not so much as it turns out.
What I hate is the way a thing like Hollywood keeps the old stereotypes going. Like if it turns out a straight character has mistakenly kissed a gay character in drag and they then have to react by puking and having a fit. Stuff like that is so silly and not funny once you're out of Junior HIgh.
Come out everybody. A new age is dawning.
Apr 27th 2010 9:42AM So many people think the common worker is getting over. I see it in these posts. God Forbid that the working guy might have a windfall or get respect for the work he does.
"Greed is good." was a joke not a motto.
Apr 27th 2010 9:37AM By the way the word "pig," has fallen out of use. I don't know anyone of my music buddies who think of police in that fashion. I would say that they're more respected than they've been in a long time. I wouldn't hang out with people who thought that way. It's ignorant and dangerous.
Apr 27th 2010 9:33AM First of all the city shouldn't have made waves with the police before a heavy city event. Secondly, someone from Sunfest, like a committee member and a musician or two should get in touch with the police and find out exactly what the gripe is and see if they can help each other.
Musicians need security. We are not fighters. I'm a big sissy myself. I don't want to get beat up or mauled by a crazed fan or band hater. Cops are blue collar. So are musicians. Everyone wants to enjoy our talents but nobody wants their kids hanging around us. Both cops and musicians are faced with a double standard on many fronts. We have much in common and the organizers of Sunfest should get to it and find out what's going on from the police themselves. Forget who's right or wrong at the moment. Let's not quibble about who killed who. Get down to what can be done now to resolve any differences or hostility.
