Henry Rollins Band
Beastie Boys

Ice Cube

George Clinton and P-Funk (mutha-----)
Erasure (uh...)
The Mentors
Firehose (2)

I just haven't seen Mercury Rev yet. The only band I want to see, except maybe for the Lips or the Spree, which I will never tire of seeing. Also, I wouldn't mind seeing Ween. Both Ween and the Lips are playing at the Austin City Limits, but there is that Sunday issue I don't care to violate plus Ween is way too vulgar. Their music is genius though. 'When the going gets tough from the get-go go man go oh no not another mother--- gonna go now'...that right, Dean? So right...

Awesome! Impressive list. I'd love to see Ween too, I hear they're great live. What were Alice in Chains like when you saw them? I only ever saw them at a roller rink. And what about Soundgarden?

Layne Staley kept on saying, "Winger? I don't think so." They closed the show with Rooster, and after the show, Cantrell's dad kept on waving to the crowd from the stage even as the roadies broke down the equipment and took it off-stage. Staley had a great voice, and the band itself presented a commanding appearance. Really good. I saw (kind of ) Soundgarden at Lollapalooza from a distance. I wasn't a big fan at the time and I wanted to watch the Jim Reid Circus which played at the same time. Ministry actually played later that day and Kim Thayil played guitar during Supernaut. Chris Cornell tried to sing So What, but didn't know the lyrics. He had a piece of paper but didn't know where the words came into the song. Al Jougensen played guitar during the set, and finally took over the lyrics. After the song was over, Cornell waved to the crowd, and walked off stage, and when he turned his back Jougensen flicked him off. It was kind of funny.

That is funny.

Everyone I've known who saw them after they were popular say they sucked live. I think Chris's voice just didn't hold up. But when I saw them (back when Hiro was still the bass player) they were the greatest thing, ever.

WEEN??? The group that "sings" the most execrable song in the entire world, Push The Little Daisies???? I thought I knew you, Patrick, but apparently, I didn't. How disappointing.

I felt tremendous sadness at Layne's passing a few years ago. Sad that he died penniless. Sad that he died on someone else's sofa. Sad that he tried but couldn't kick his heroin habit. Their song, "Would", is what made me a big fan.

Bouffant Jellyfish!!! I used to date a guy in high school who always wanted to drag me to one of their shows. Alas, it never happened. I think that might have been during my Vanilla Ice/LL Cool J phase.

You can't judge Ween by "Daisies." Their entire catalogue is one of the most versatile in rock. They even did a country album. They can do it all.

Listen to Mollusk, The Pod, X...They're actually touring with the Flaming Lips, which would be an incredible show.

Tell anonymous that you don't need his stinking money making scheme. Not since you started work as a male go-go dancer. THAT'S where the real money is, right Patrick?

Who knew that you could choreograph a routine to the sounds of Ministry?
