Is that white rapper with the I-71 tattoo still going?  Or did he move back in with his mom? 

Machine Gun Kelley has festival dates and a supporting slot on a Fall Out Boy tour coming up.   He was also just cast for the roll of Tommy Lee in the Motley Crue "The Dirt" movie being produced by Netflix.   I hate to say it, but the kid has a nice little career forming.

Anyone remember him getting arrested for starting a flash mob at southpark mall in Strongsville? I think that was his big breakout stunt. Pretty funny since his whole shtik is of a hard dude. Good for him though, has more money than me.

CLE's music scene is 100x better. After all, they have the Rock Hall and they're the birth place of Rock and Roll!

Score one for gatekeeping and the A&R men of the past.

I think it's actually harder than ever to get "discovered" now.  If you weren't on the Disney Channel as a kid or didn't have some sort of video go viral, you're doomed.  There is no mystery anymore, no urban legends.  Bands can't possibly have a mystique when you can look up the individual members on Facebook and see them at their cousin's First Communion cookout. 

I remember the magical outlaw years of the internet, say 2000-2004, after AOL died off but MySpace and Facebook hadn't hit. Everyone was just an e-mail address. Bands got to be really mysterious if they chose since the only channels were basically a website (which someone had to make) and an mp3.com page. One genre that does get to be mysterious is Synthwave since many of the acts exist only on YouTube (with only art as the visual) and Soundclound/Bandcamp. I've seen one picture of the Lazerhawk guy ever.

Keith Richards sez Taylor Swift's music sucks.  Because it does:

Has anyone run into these young musicians who try to make arguments for Swift, Lady Gaga, Bieber, etc.?  Sorry, they're all rehashes and they their music sucks.

Personally, I don't see how you could put Bieber in the same sentence as Swift and Gaga, but I'm not going to try to convince you because I can tell you feel strongly about this.

Gaga did a Led Zeppelin cover.



Obviously this was before she was Gaga and put through the MK Ultra program / illuminati mind control and whatnot. Regardless, she's the real deal, imho. I like her. She's a good singer, dancer and can play instruments. I'm sure she writes at least a lot of her own music.

Swift and Bieber are obviously garbage.

I agree with you about Gaga and Bieber, you are wrong about Swift. You may not be into blonde girls singing country songs about endless breakups, but she's the real deal too. She's a tremendous songwriter, writes all her own stuff, and also plays instruments. I'm not crazy about her latest album, but I enjoyed most of her first two pop albums too.

Girl-pop is so much better today with Gaga and Swift than it was when I was growing up during the Britney Spears era.

I defended Gaga, you defended Swift. Something tells me no one is going to step up and defend Bieber!

I'm on an old country music kick right now. I'm sure I'll catch hell but I really like Randy Horton.

Yeah, I first heard this song late at night on WSM 650AM when I lived in Nashville about 20 years ago.  It is hilarious!  That station still played all of the old country music, all of the time.

the latest singing sensation in the subway is a group called Blac Rabbit, twin brothers who do Beatles songs (not bad considering the atrocious acoustics)

New favorite song right now (the lyrics are fine but the video is probably NSFW because of the violence):

Cash Me Outside thinks Leanne Rimes is related to Busta Rhymes.  You can't make this stuff up:

i saw an acoustic show by david j recently. that would be david j haskins of bauhaus/love&rockets aka the goth father himself. just him and his guitar. there were like 40 ppl in the house at this intimate brooklyn venue and i was probably the only non-musician. in the middle of his set he talked about taylor swift and played her song new years day. he said you can tell if a pop song is a great song after you strip the production gloss off of it and see it for what it is. musicians know musicians.

It takes a musician to tell you that Black Sabbath's "Children of the Grave" and Blondie's "Call Me" are actually the same song. If you know how to play one you know the other.
