Freebird!

So, I’m trolling through Blender’s listing of the 50 Worst Things to Ever Happen to Music, and these just jumped off the page…

blender50.jpg#49. I have no problem with this. In fact, I think it can make most rock concerts better if used with the correct restraint (read here).

#48. Agreed. Carry on…

#42 – Scott Stapp. “Although he’s rehabilitated his image in recent years by becoming an incorrigible drunk and trying to beat up 311, there’s no getting around the music. The fourth-generation grunge he’s peddled solo and with Creed might be harmless if it weren’t swathed in quasi-religious pomposity and delivered with an arrogance that — in light of his musical, er, gifts — feels downright delusional.”

This list has officially satisifed me as “entertainment.” I can quit reading now, and that’s a good thing…

I'm the Editor. HOLLA.

    Interesting list. I especially like No. 7, “Finding God.” Why is it that religion can so often screw up a decent musician’s career? I mean, “God gave rock and roll to us,” right? What kind of cruel joke could he be playing?
