Carlos = cooler than Pete.
Pete = more talented than Carlos.

If I ever have kids one is getting called Carlos.

SOD OFF HORSE FACE!
Though I know what you mean, hopefully you do realize that all of these people are ASKING Grohl to play with them. What does that say about them? "Please Dave, make us famous like you!!!"


I hate that I pronounced the H in Thom Yorke's name for about a year. Hey, how was I supposed to know? It's not like I'd ever heard anyone else say his name back then!!!

i hate the local rock and "obscure and album non-single tracks" rock shows that i loved in high school. apparently the local scene here is in huge decline, because everything on that show blows goats. and the "obscure" bands aren't as obscure as i used to think. bad religion? pennywise? slayer? come on. people know these bands. sure, they're not nickelback or good charolette, but is regular non-special show radio really that bland? i wouldn't know, i haven't spent enough time listening to it in the last 4 years.

LYRIC BOOKLETS! They should be so EASY, but they seem to be stuffed so often.

1. If you're going to give the lyrics for SOME songs, why not include the rest?
2. If you're going to include the lyrics, you could at least make sure they are CORRECT.
3. And please make the lyrics LEGIBLE! There is nothing more frustrating than squinting in a vain attempt to try to read tiny text that blends into its background.

Having incomplete or incorrect or illegible lyrics is almost as frustrating as having no lyrics at all.

Oh, and in a similar vein, I hate it when a band includes some thick booklet ... and you find that not a single page has lyrics! I don't care for photographs of the band members - and I care even less for photos of other random objects. By all means, include photos (RELEVANT ones!) to liven up lyrical booklets, but don't waste paper on a stack of useless photos included at the expense of lyrics.

kidding. i hate that. i hate bad artwork even more (which explains my hatred toward that giant super-deluxe crock of shit that was the book version of HTDAAB).

and when they put the lyrics in some funky "handwriting" font that's not possible to read.

No lyric sheets

I hate that the really interesting, new, innovative music can only be heard on alternative radio stations that are always strapped for cash and often on the brink of closure while money is thrown at shitty, whoringthemselvesforadverts commercial radio stations. And theyre called shite things like AOR, MOR, WANK and spreading across this country like herpes

I still pronounce the 'H'. I always thought it was a longer deriavative of 'Thomas' than 'Tom'.

I think I might call him Yorkie from now on....

Have you ever seen the lyric booklet to David Gray's White Ladder??????? THE MOST ANNOYING BOOKLET EVER It puts (and I'm honestly not making this up!) all the lyrics to the songs (there are about 11 I think) on one double page spread. But how does it manage this I hear you ask? Simple. By putting the lyrics in one continous line of smallish white text with nothing obvious to tell you where one song ends and another starts. Thus the booklet is simply some photos of Dave and a double page block of white text. Fine if you want to read the lyrics to the first song but the seventh? No chance.

A. Men. Thank you . I've never quite understood why either of those things happen.

I would also like to express my hatred of gig-related injuries. It's very tiresome to wake up the morning after a gig and discover the imprint of the security barrier on your stomach. Bruises in the shape of the boots of crowdsurfers are similarly annoying.

I read this first as "jig-related injuries". I didnt know anyone could jig that hard.

Do people in the US not usually use the word gig? I've just realised I don't usually see anyone using it here, it always seems to be concerts or shows instead.
