First up: Josh Klinghoffer is literally Hitler

I'm laughing pretty damn hard right now. Frusciante he ain't, that's for sure.

As much as I love Led Zep, I think that Jimmy Page is overrated and the least talented member of the band.

I can't stand the vast majority of Led Zeppelin's catalogue regardless.

lol Hitler.....wow.  :-P


I think the biggest difference between Josh and John is that when John plays, you fucking feel it. He just pours his guts out onto everything and it gets all over you. Josh gets a few points for being able to parrot everything that John has played in the past, plus the new stuff is decent in the sense that I can listen to it and still enjoy the feel of the Chilis. But it's definitely not the same.

That's the issue with Josh's own playing too, of course. He is doing an impression of John.

Just sayin'

I know he didn't write most (I think one song is his), but this is proof of his talent at the very least.

As for Jimmy page, I dare you all to say that this isn't impressive as fuck. And if you say it's because it's in an open tuning you can fuck the fuck right off

Title: Re: General music shittalking thread
Post by: Thrillho on 14 May 2014, 14:16
So it took him 38 years to write a good lyric? WHAT A MUSIC LEGEND

Seriously though, I may not have specified, but I meant in Led Zeppelin. In a band with an incredible guitarist, a multi-talented bassist, and a unique but in my opinion massively overrated drummer, you had a squealy motherfucker writing fucking LOTR/stolen blues lyrics as their frontman.

B-but it's in open tuning!

I kid, that is impressive, I just think that in comparison to Bonham and Jones he's not quite on the same level of talent, that however doesn't mean that I don't like the band, I don't share a lot of the other opinions in this thread and you'll often find me rocking out to immigrant Song or Black Dog. Also, Physical Graffiti is their best album.

My current gripe: Ukeleles. Fucking everyone seems to be throwing away their real instruments and releasing quaint little indie-folk songs on fucking ukeleles. Any band that does this does not deserve to call themselves a band.
Title: Re: General music shittalking thread
Post by: KingOfIreland on 15 May 2014, 06:40
I've always wanted to play the last song in a set on a uke and then smash it at the end to make some kind of point.

On annoying trends: In Belgium at least there's a 'burgeoning' DIY punk scene. Just because you're DIY, doesn't mean you're amazing and troopunx man.

Gave Plant/Krauss an honest listen last night.  Was reasonably impressed until Plant started to wail.  Seriously, he needs to just stay muted imo.

Can I just say there is a massive difference between that ^ and what I was referring to. I'm talking about the fact that every time I go out, I seem to see so many ukelele bands with such little talent. That dude's got talent. He's exempt.

This made me hate Brooklyn so hard. Fucking giggling twats with Ukes. "Oh look I duct taped some electronic bullshit and now it feedsback for 42 minutes and so my set just magically gets extended by the time cut out of your set. I'm so cute and high and 23..."

I had to stop busking at a Pt Adelaide market because some douche with a uke wanted to play a set. She was so bad that people were actually coming up to me as I was packing up my piano and giving me money instead. Like, stepping over her tip jar to give me money. 

.. I suppose I should feel kinda bad about it, but eh. MONEY. :parrot:

Not so much of a shitstir as a question:

How far do you think the intro to "Who are you" by The Who was influenced by hiphop?
I think it's an incredibly hip-hop intro.
By accident or on purpose? :)
Title: Re: General music shittalking thread
Post by: Thrillho on 08 Nov 2016, 04:39
Townsend's influences at the time were pushing more towards disco (no, really) and punk than hip-hop to my knowledge. He was trying to be a bit more boundary-free with his work but I'm not sure if hip-hop was on his radar by then.

C'mon; AFD was killer. As was their output before that. They just got flabby, quickly. Can you say you wouldn't do the same in their position? I am 6 years older than you so I expect the impact of AfD on my Anthrax/Metallica/Slayer world was bigger than the big album release when you were watching out. But they single-handedly took metal (I don't deal with sub-genres) back out of the hands of the 40+ guys who made us feel small at concerts and back into the hands of us 16-20yos. Thats how it felt in Scotland. I am sure you have more input over there.

Met them 20 years back at an Exploited gig I did sound for. They seemed like twats, in the same way as when I did sound for Matt Lucas and David Walliams for a Little Britain comedy tour, they seemed like twats.

Nothing but criticism. Individual headphone feeds, lovely kit, but all they could do was complain.

20 years later I had the Offspring in my studio for a warm-up gig before a tour date. Met up with them, chilled and explained smoking outside (rule everywhere, is it not?), put them in a rehearsal room for 5 days.

They ruined my brand new carpet stubbing cigarettes out, ordered indian food and dropped it on the floor and stained it. Just threw stuff past the bin.

Mainly carpet issues TBH. I tried to bill the agent for the cleanup and he told me he was fired 2 dates in, and he already knew of 20k worth of problems. Christ knows what they would have caused in an affluent country.
