re: Pete Townshend vs. Keith Richards - vandelay industries
In terms of Led Zeppelin's concerts, I think most reasonable fans tolerated some bum notes or sloppy passages from Page (it kinda goes with the territory of largely improvised performance), because when he & the band reached those transcendent moments they were striving for in a live performance, th...

re: Greatest artist debut album ever? - vandelay industries
While it's not MY pick for "best debut EVAH", Meat Loaf's 'Bat Out Of Hell' sold 40+ million copies and has a few songs that still get airplay today. Before someone lectures me, I know album sales aren't the end-all...but to be among one of the [i]all-time[/i] best sellers (I mean, it's ranked at nu...

re: Pete Townshend vs. Keith Richards - vandelay industries
While my personal preference is Pete, Keith is very underrated IMO. He has great chemistry when he jams with other musicians, and his "burnout" reputation overshadows his skills as a guitarist. There's not alot of footage of him playing in his Netflix doc, but there's [i]just[/i] enough where you sh...

re: Anyone else like Bill Burr? - vandelay industries
The other day, I was on a long drive, so I listened to one of my "rainy day" podcasts. This one was Chris Hartwick's podcast, featuring Bill Burr, from about a year ago. Somehow the topic turned to Burr's time in Australia, and both he & Hartwick were talking about how many dangerous critters & crea...

re: Best "Risk" album - vandelay industries
I came here to post Achtung Baby, so I definitely agree there. The Cult, I dunno. Still a great album, though. Although, maybe Billy Duffy going overboard with the guitar solos might be considered a bit "risky", depending on who you ask, lol... Might not be considered a "risk" album in retrospect...

re: Movie that most love, but you hate? - vandelay industries
Another one I just remembered: Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Everyone shouts from the rooftops over how awesome and iconic this movie is, and more power to ya if you love it, but Ferris is too much of an annoyingly douchey pipsqueak to me, no doubt because Matthew Broderick is an equally annoying douche...

re: Kubo and the Two Strings - vandelay industries
Yeah, there were definitely moments where it seemed like Monkey & Beetle might've already figured it out on some kind of level, but they didn't have the "a-ha" moment 'til a little later on... But admittedly, I had little to no knowledge of any back story going in, so I'm just going by my one sin...

re: Bands that at least three members had solo top 40 hits? - vandelay industries
Remember those Kiss solo albums from '78? While only one of the band members had a bona fide hit (Ace Frehley's "New York Groove"), Simmons & Stanley barely missed the Top 40. So I guess it technically doesn't meet the OP's criteria, and the non-Ace singles probably charted b/c of payola anyway :lol...

re: Kubo and the Two Strings - vandelay industries
POTENTIAL SPOILERS: My armchair analysis about Monkey not recognizing Beetle...I think the theme of "preserving your memories" was strong in the movie, particularly because Monkey/Kubo's mom was gradually losing her memory, perhaps even on the verge of Alzheimer's. Unless my own memory has fail...

re: Movie that most love, but you hate? - vandelay industries
While I enjoy some of Tarantino's work, the dialogue he writes sounds like it could all come from the same movie, as if he was plugging in names from his own personal stash of Mad Libs. And for as long as his movies are, he shouldn't have to cop out with such dopey & forced exposition...IMO....

This comment will probably earn a bunch of downvotes, but after watching The Royal Tenenbaums, I'm convinced that 90% of the people who claim to love it would flunk a polygraph......

re: Def Leppard - vandelay industries
Actually, I've heard them criticize On Through The Night ever since High and Dry was released, so it's not revisionist thinking. It had some good songs, yes, but there still was also a bit of identity crisis going on too IMO......

re: Def Leppard - vandelay industries
[quote]I don't hate em. They just took a detour from the kind of music I had liked. They went from the new wave of British metal to pop.[/quote] Same here. High and Dry, and to a slightly lesser extent Pyromania, was music that sounded like it was meant for me (at the time), where Hysteria sounde...

re: Overwhelmed By Debt, Nearly 1 In 5 Young Adults Live With Parents Or Grandparent - vandelay industries
Call this generation lazy or whatever you want, but the fact is they have one hand tied behind their backs compared to the peers in my younger days. I nearly got as much bang for my buck from my shitty high school minimum-wage job in 1983 than many folks get with their "regular" jobs today. Hell, I ...

re: Def Leppard - vandelay industries
I saw Def Leppard twice, once on the Pyromania tour, and the other in 2014. The difference was night and day...the Pyromania tour was one stomper after another, while the '14 tour was diet-flavored rock. I applaud bands for taking chances and branching out, but if we're being honest, everything post...

re: How is "The Shield"? - vandelay industries
If you can't find it anywhere to stream, you can get the entire series for under $30 on Amazon. The first season is important, but it really hits the groove from season 2 and on. And of course, the final two episodes....wow, just wow. Hail Cletus Van Damme......

re: Anyone else like Bill Burr? - vandelay industries
He has an HBO special from years ago that's hilarious, too...it's On Demand if you have Comcast. Seen him perform twice, loved both shows. The second time was at The Punchline, right before they closed it down...he was working a bunch of new bits, and it almost felt like a live performance of one...

re: KISS question. Who was their best Musician? - vandelay industries
Vincent collaborated well with them, but left to his own wares....well, just listen to the wankery of the Vinnie Vincent Invasion, lol... Paul does criticize himself, but he usually does it to justify himself before throwing someone else under the bus, lol...if you ever read his book, you might s...

re: Best Kiss album (no platinum or Live)? - vandelay industries
I won't dispute the majority of the OP's list, but the drums on 'Creatures' is too gimmicky for my tastes. It works for some songs, but chokes the groove out of others. And 'Unmasked', compared to what the band's peers were releasing at the same time, makes me shake my head in embarrassment, lol....

re: KISS question. Who was their best Musician? - vandelay industries
Ace was the best musician, with Peter a close second. Paul & Gene might've written the lion's share of music, but they were hacks at their instruments, comparatively speaking. For various reasons, Peter's skills diminished...if you see any footage of his return during the reunion tour in '96, he was...
