  • Guns 'n Roses.......why would you subject yourself to that utter pish? Same as Red Hot Chilli Peppers....not rock enough to be Rock, not funky enough to be Funk, they just exist in this vague leaden noise hinterland of mediocrity......with goddawful 6th form stream of conciousness lyrics......

    I don't get this current crop of AOR crap either - Mumford and Sons? Do me a favour! 6 Music has a lot to answer for in this respect

  • they both have a couple of "drunk" anthems

  • Fuck you man,.. Guns & Roses woo!

    RHCP can fuck right off.

  • I was into G'N'R, but I was like 11 or 12, and MTV was just a baby.
    I know what you mean, on friday during dinner a friend of mine (guitarist) started with some RHCP at the table... I had to leave immediately, it's just utter shite to my ears!!!

  • I've never got into this whole brand new mobile phone thing. And having a phone that does loads of stuff but is the size of a brick. Whats the point?

    After watching T2:Judgement Day I was determined to get some guns and roses and a dirtbike (but not a friend with a ginger mullet).

  • Ah, the early days of MTV, when they actually played music videos! I had our top-loading Betamax video player permanently poised and ready to record stuff I liked. don't even get me started on Betamax...

  • I used to be in a band with someone that went to see RHCP 'live' and he actually had the fucking audacity and without any hint of irony to say to me 'yeah, but Flea is an *awesome *Bassist'

    what can you do eh?

  • RHCP are the most overrated pile of wank ever. fact.

    you can leave GnR right out of this though!

  • Ah, the early days of MTV, when they actually played music videos! I had our top-loading Betamax video player permanently poised and ready to record stuff I liked. don't even get me started on Betamax...

    i never got why the inferior vhs platform out did the much better and neater for storage betamax... [perhaps if it was called alphamax...?)

  • The Beatles

  • what is the 'official' story with VHS over Beta anyway?

  • After watching T2:Judgement Day I was determined to get some guns and roses and a dirtbike (but not a friend with a ginger mullet).

    Terminator 2 + You Could Be Mine = Awesome. :)

  • The Beatles

    fair play, but that's more about you than them, as I can assure you, they is well 'gettable'

  • . don't even get me started on Betamax...

    gwan plinth do get started and explain

  • Guns 'n Roses

    Fucking crap. Is it an irony thing?

    Red Hot Chilli Peppers

    I don't listen to them much but they are an incredible band. Just because they don't fit into any of your narrowly-defined categories doesn't make them mediocre. I can't actually can't think of a less mediocre band, for better or for worse.

    Mumford and Sons [et al]

    Not enjoying them all too much but I'm really enjoying this side of music currently. Makes a nice change to chang-a-lang indie-by-numbers. At least it's musical. What does AOR mean?

  • Adult Oriented Rock

  • i can take the RHCP thing, but GNR? fuck me - they were awsey.
    Appetite For Destruction is one of the all time greats.

  • ... herpes

  • yeah you might be right about Indie band thing. I dunno...I'm old and bitter anyway...I watch music on TV and find myself grimacing and muttering 'the fuck is that?' a lot these days.....

  • Guns 'n Roses.......why would you subject yourself to that utter pish? Same as Red Hot Chilli Peppers....not rock enough to be Rock, not funky enough to be Funk, they just exist in this vague leaden noise hinterland of mediocrity......with goddawful 6th form stream of conciousness lyrics......

    Agreed

    Pub music, best played on the jukey at last orders

  • I used to be in a band with someone that went to see RHCP 'live' and he actually had the fucking audacity and without any hint of irony to say to me 'yeah, but Flea is an *awesome *Bassist'

    what can you do eh?

    What shit are you chatting girlfriend? Flea is an absolutely incredible bassist and performer. It's not about opinion, it's a fact. Even the very elite bass playing fraternity (Wooten etc.) rate him highly.

    congratulations, you have officially turned into your father.

  • nah......GNR = all that poodle perm/spandex nonsense - fucking shite.

  • Adult Oriented Rock

    What an embarrassing, turgid expression.
