Re: “Hunter and the hunted

I think when People Magazine did a photo shoot of him n put him on one of their sexiest or eligible bachelor list i think thats when he was recognized. He did that PS when he was on DWTS n dating Julianne at the same time. I think if he did not have exposure on DWTS and dating Julianne, he wouldn't have made that MSN list. That photo shoot on the beach made him look real hot, I can still picture it in my mind. They wouldn't have asked him to b on DWTS if it wasn't for Julianne, but they wanted a test the waters.

Re: “Thus spoke Shagrath

Awesome, very good interview! This band is one of the originators of this genre and although I'm not a big fan of Abrahadabra-- Dimmu is still and will always be heads above so many of the other black metal bands. Saw them for the first time last Saturday at The Gothic and they were everything I thought they'd be and more!!! EPIC!!!! This band will not be ignored!!!!

Re: “Art-punk confidential

Obviously Dean Spunt doesn't watch Craig's show. I find it rather ironic that Dean would judge Craig as a racist by one comment he said about one of the stipulations to appear on the CBS network. Craig has rules to follow and if anyone knows how to "get one by" it would be Craig himself.
It sounds more like you're a tad bit miffed that you didn't get to make a statement about your support for a cause. Your anger is completely misdirected.
You might want to rethink your decision to stand on principle, I think you just shot yourself in the foot. Craig may not have the largest audience but he definitely has the most loyal audience! Have you ever heard of The Robot Skeleton Army??? I think probably not.
Sorry, I just think it was a really stupid move on your part. Craig has more positive comments on YouTube than almost any other. You didn't do your homework Dean.
What was the name of your band again? See if you would have gone on his show all we would have to search for is Craig Ferguson Late Late Show.
pattismack was spot on with that comment.

Re: “Art-punk confidential

Wow. Obnoxious and self-serving, indeed. The band, I mean, definitely not Craig Ferguson. Randall showed up to the show wearing a t-shirt that's against broadcast television policy, and they're tagging Ferguson as the scapegoat? Despicable. Accusing him of being racist is a low blow.

Also, how respectful of the band to respond their invitation to perform and national tv by "[deciding] to fuck" with the show's host. Speaks volume about their integrity, doesn't it? No wonder no one's ever heard of the band.

Re: “Art-punk confidential

This guy is an IDIOT! He doesn't get it at all! Ferguson is not a racist - far from it. It was CBS's policy re the Obama T-shirt, and Ferguson was just trying to make sure that policy was observed (no doubt under duress from network suits). He generally avoids discussing politics in general (and religion) because they are too emotionally charged and that's not what his show's about. He was SINCERE is his shout out to the band regarding the issue because he LOVES rebellion. It's what made America.....America! Lighten up, Dean! It's not all about YOU.

Re: “Shad keeps shining

A really well written article, and for an American, you've highlighted the importance of the awards Shad has been associated with very well. Good to know people south of the border have heard of him.

Re: “Shad keeps shining

Bill, I just want to thank and congratulate you on a well-written article. I'm from Toronto and a huge Shad fan and I always get a little worried about American publications talking about Canadian artists that I love; I worry they'll miss the point. But you really did a nice job with this one and didn't downplay the importance of being nominated for/winning Junos and the Polaris Prize.

Re: “Blue-eyed soul searching

My first taste of Chromeo was a few years ago: stumbling onto "Tenderoni" on an Irish friend's MySpace page. I was sold.

Nice to know I wasn't the only kid in high school that looked up "that guy in the Warren G song." ;-)

Re: “Slash's lucky 13

"Like with Fergie, we did the music exactly the way I wrote it," Slash said. "She sang to exactly what I wrote. We didn't change anything. That happened a lot on the record. But then with Kid Rock, and with M Shadows [of Avenged Sevenfold], we worked on those songs from the ground up. mbt shoes
They really had an idea of the parts they wanted to do."

Re: “BoDeans don’t fade away

I am a hard core Bodeans fan from Canada, I love all the releases, hard to name my favourite. I love the new record, I was listening to it in the car yesterday, and today I was back to "Joe Dirt Car", hard to beat that one for variety. Bodeans are the greatest American roots rock band of the past 30 years, no one is close in my estimation. Since their following is very loyal, I really don't think the iTunes snub will matter much, other than being an undeserved insult. Most of these flash in the pan artists burn out after 2-3 years of over hype and no one wants to hear them ever again. Bodeans are classic, their music endures. I for one don't mind being part of the cult following, and I am just angry they never come to Canada to perform !!

Re: “Ke$ha’s improbable path to success

Too bad the show was canceled. If you do not coordinate publicity and ticket sales and promotions together, it is the same as trying to go it alone. United we stand, divided we fall. I suggest they get an expert to examine their coordination problem. Very funny Ke$ha, but the answer is "Yeah, Yeah."

Joy to you, Rose

Re: “BoDeans don’t fade away

So now iTunes decides what is and what isn't relevant...

What a (musical) world we live in. I have used iTunes for years now to find older acts and see what they've been up to. I've downloaded "world" music that is not relevant in the context of the U.S.A. or American (corporate) radio.

I find it comforting to know that most "mainstream" radio, the iTunes format, and what music magazines consider to be relevant are proving not relevant at all. iTunes will hang on because of their sheer market volume. But what they throw at me on their music genre pages isn't relevant to me or most consumers.

When they begin to realize that, then there will be hope for them to hang in there and not turn out like the dinosaurs of the (former) record industry and over-the-air radio. As more and more artists figure out Web pages and PayPal, I'll be going direct-to-artists like BoDeans for my music and truly cut out the middle man.

Kurt has his own recording studio and once he gets the Internet down, along with sales at shows of direct CDs, he'll reap all the profits (along with Sam, of course), and be able to bypass the corporate ignoramuses that spell out their own demise. Sure, it won't be tomorrow, but how long ago was it that CDs were considered to be the future? iTunes should reconsider thier god-like statements of what is and isn't relevant.

Mr. Sad Clown, by the way, is an excellent recording all the way around. "Say Goodbye" should be getting A.C. airplay in ALL markets, as should "Gone X 3." "Shine" is another example of radio-friendly music that is relevant today.

Keep up the good work!

Re: “The long run

Time for these guys to call it quits.Young has been babbling for decades , always dropping names, who left Poco, blah, blah blah. If the band had done anything maybe the guys wouldn't have left. He talks like it's his accomplishment or Poco's that band members found great success elsewhere. The fact is they didn't find it with him, that's nothing to brag about.

I've seen them a few times over that past few years and nothing has changed since yesteryear.It's a snooze job,filled with slow , dreary tunes, little energy, same stale stuff. Young was barely passable as a lead vocalist in the 70's, now his breathy vocals are a whimper.As for this particular show, I was there. They had the misfortune of playing after Pure Prairie League. Poco was blown off the stage by PPL, who were led by Craig Fuller. That band was on fire, just like the old days, great show. To hear Poco describe it, they had a big night. Maybe it was, as far as old freinds etc, but not musically. Despite publicity like this article, the largest part of the crowd departed after PPL, and even more left by the 3rd or 4th song. No joke, they had less than 100 people under the Palomino tent while performing.

Now, Paul Cotton left, and not exactly on friendly terms. i guess Young is hanging on until he can get a book done, so he can peddle it to the few fanatics who attend the shows.No doubt the book will have stories about all the big names he knows or met, more blah blah blah.He won't have any stories about what a smashing success Poco was so he'll adjust. Hey, maybe he can make the same old stale jokes about The Eagles stealing his bass players !! I wonder why they left ????A perfect example of name dropping.Save your money.

The next time I read that a band actually states that it was influenced by Poco, it will be the first. But ask Young or Furay and they'll tell you every band after them was a direct result of them ! Quite remarkable since hardly anyone knew tham and those that did didn't get to excited anout them ! Sometimes, you're just not good enough. As Chris Hillman said: "They just didn't have very good songs. " Guess what ? They still don't.
