THE GRAMMY AWARDS

Monday, January 27th 2014

 

Thank you for not much!  Especially running out of time and cutting off the final performance of two songs by Josh Homme (Q.O.T.S.A.), Dave Grohl, Mr. Nine Inch Nails aka Trent Reznor and Lindsay Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac!  I’m glad Trent Reznor blew up on CBS on twitter saying “&^%^ YOU CBS”!  At least we saw the 2 living Beatles perform together.  Heck Sir Paul McCartney picked up 5 awards, one for his collaboration with Pat Smear, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic of Nirvana!

I’m not a fan of Nine Inch Nails, but I have a TON of respect for Trent Reznor.  Why was Metallica there? Are they even relevant anymore?  I’ve never enjoyed their music or personalities.  Lars Ulrich and James Hetfield sobered up in the documentary “Some Kind of Monster” then went “Where did Jason go?” (former bass player after Cliff Burton died in a tour bus accident).  Jason Newsted left because he was sick of putting up with Lars and James’ attitude, always being called the new guy and told don’t do this and don’t do that!  I would leave too.  Isn’t music supposed to be fun?  I guess not if you’re a “replacement” for 2 decades in Metallica!

 

Sure Mitch told me what to play, he made it better.  I can write lyrics, not very good at the music part though.  I took care of the lyrics, Mitch took care of the guitar parts, while Jerry and whoever was playing drums (Jordan or Todd, I didn’t get to play with the current drummer Chris Dimas) figured out what they would play, what would fit the song!  One day Mitch will get it on iTunes, all of the 3 albums.  “Chemical Horizon” and 2 “Room 333”, the second one being recorded at the moment!

 

In the end do awards really mean anything other than publicity for those who win or perform?  Can’t forget about Daft Punk winning an award for “Get Lucky” it’s a catchy song!

This could be a BIG year for rock and metal.  The new “In Flames” album is in the mixing process, Foo Fighters are rumoured to be recording, “Queens of the Stone Age” will be recording in the fall, that should be released early 2015, if you like “Metallica” they’ve just released a live album or movie of them in Antarctica, there are photos of amps, guitars and stuff on Big Wreck’s facebook page, Rob Zombie is quite active on facebook at the moment, haven’t checked if it’s about a new album or not though?

 

 

Has anyone seen “Captain Phillips” based on a true story with Tom Hanks as Richard Phillips?  It’s quite a good movie!  I’d recommend it to anyone & everyone!  Excellent movie!  No love story or chick flick here!  I did sit through “Silver Lining Playbook” though, it had a few funny moments but in the end it’s a chick flick.  Still nowhere near as bad as “The #@$%&^%$ Notebook”

 

“Don’t judge anyone until you’ve been in their shoes”

 

“Just because today is a terrible day doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life. You’ve just got to get their” I don’t have terrible days.

 

“Don’t try to please everyone, it CAN’T happen”

 

“Apologize for your mistakes and learn something from them”

 

“I feel good about the good things and bad about the bad things”-David Eric Grohl

 

Bye,

“Hubby Boo Boo” aka “Butthead” aka Christopher
