Holy shit.... what a song. If music still had the same pop cultural impact as yesteryear, the world would be going ape shit over this new sound.
I'm going to support them and buy the upcoming album. I haven't bought a new Pearl Jam album since VS.
Also considering going to the Oakland show in April. They're one of the last few bands I'd like to see.
Slash with Guitar.com
Speaking of Guns, have you got anything more you can share about the new album?
“There’s been no definitive answer on anything and I’ll just keep keep to that. Stuff is happening, but there are no specifics. More than anything, it’s because of the nature of the industry right now. It’s just like, how do you want to do this? I mean there’s material and there’s recording and there’s shit going on, but we’re not really sure what we’re doing with it right now.”
I'm not going to panic....yet.
Soundgarden made similar comments when they reunited. The industry has been fucked for years and these older bands/artists aren't always able or willing to adapt.
Hell....the Stones released their final album a few years ago and literally no one gave a fuck.
Even U2 releases aren't the pop culture spectacle they used to be.
Gotta find a middle ground.
Translation: Nobody under 35 buys fucking music anymore... Why would we waste time with that when bovines and boomers are paying $200 bucks a head to see a broad way tier performance... and that's all these legacy rock tours are nowadays. Worse than CATS.... Oy fuck'n vey
Srsly though... What is the point of releasing new material?? Do you think that will attract even more fans?? and sell more tickets to a very popular world tour?? I mean, who the fuck doesn't already know who this band is??
Lastly... rock as a commercially viable source of huge profits for (((labels))) is long dead. Look at the numbers(physical retail and tour stats) of any act that is not 15+ years old.... Shit... can you even name a semi known rock band that was formed since 2005?
New songs/albums in the current era are just a promotional tool for a tour. That's it. They serve no other purpose now. Music in the 2010s and beyond is just background noise while people post on Facebook, Twitter, or whatever....and they only care to hear a hot single in that background. Deep cuts are meaningless now.
It sucks but it is what it is.
I predicted many years ago that the constant pushing of rap music combined with the garbage reality/talent show era of the early-mid 2000s was going to kill music.
I was right.
Then factor in the downloading and then streaming era.
Music will never again have the impact it did in our youth.
#5 Re: Guns N' Roses » Which tracks do we think Buckethead is or isn't on from the disks? » 9 hours ago
Buckethead is certainly on Prom Violence. That's a Giant Robot Production jam. Hell....the song title itself is a dead giveaway that it's Bucket. He's a horror movie fanatic and prom violence is a reference to Carrie.
I know people disagree for some reason and I agree the dates on the discs are iffy but Soul Monster is definitely Bucket. He's the only person in the band to ever compose songs of that nature. If it's not him, someone like Steve Vai secretly recorded with the band.
He's not on the 2000 Intentions Riad....yet is clearly on Madagascar. Weird.
Oklahoma a major head scratcher....

There is certainly something different even if it just sprucing up and enhancing the mix with modern technology tools.
Yeah....same with Soundgarden's Telephantasm. Cornell admitted adding some new vocals to Black Rain but there were some other tracks that were suspect... specifically the bass.

#9 Re: The Garden » Unofficial Carl’s Jr. Thread » 10 hours ago
I love Carl's Jr/Hardees. Only one in the entire Pittsburgh area, so I get it maybe once or twice a year. I'd kill for an In-N-Out east of the Mississippi though.
Did you ever get a chance to eat at Carl's or Hardee's before they merged in the late 90s?
Hardee's was completely different. It was kinda like McDonald's and Arby's combined.
Free flow soda is also a bonus.
They were the first chain to offer this.
Back in 1989.

I haven't had Carl's Jr in years. Quality went down the toilet while the prices went way up.
They were awesome in the 80s and 90s though.
The western bacon cheeseburger was amazing....fried zucchini good if it was fully cooked.
Next time I get a burger, instead of In N Out or Habit, I'll go here.
