Re: Random Questions

1. Favorite Band Alice in Chains, for reasons I regularly go into at length 2.

Re: other genre's the big four grunge bands fall into

Bleach was a total metal album, I've also heard several other people say that as well Naw, don't see that -- heavy =/= metal. Metal is a very precise style, and on Bleach, the riffing is too dense most of the time, and the majority of the technical side of the music was more minimalist than what me...

Re: Unreleased "Tripod" era songs.

According to a "Mickey Holmes", the song I misread as "Arrow Phunks" is in fact "Farrow Phunks" which is about a Simone Farrow, a pornographic film actress who Layne Staley apparently dated at one point. The song apparently was renamed “Shame in You” as such accounting for at least that absence.

Re: Jerry On Replacing Layne...

Even though its the technically correct word, I don't feel that William Duvall is really replacing Layne Staley as such. It feels to me more like he's paying tribute to Layne by following in his footsteps, and is carrying a torch for future generations to become entwined in this band -- everything h...

Re: Folk/Bluegrass/Country

Folk — I loves it I tell thee ... the British Folkrock scene from the late-1960s and early-1970s left a legacy of some fantastic music, and it opened up a world of extraordinarily talented musicians. Sandy Denny has a very high and well-deserved ranking on that list of my favourite female singer, su...

Meat Puppets, “What to Do?”

The anthem of the directionless. A Stones original by birth, a Meat Puppets masterpiece by destiny.
