Stevign: re: "Reasons for Sterilization or Euthanasia"

If the cloudbursts thunder in your ears
You shout and no one seems to hear
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

They play Rock & Roll, is there something to "get"?

Nope, not really. It either works for you or it doesn't.

It works for me.

Don't apologize, RNR. BIB was dedicated to Bon, right?

And it is one of the best albums of all time. But a lot of Bon's songs are classic, and still great done by Brian.

Well, rock bands are just like everything else, aren't they? Some are good, some not so good. There are bands with artistic integrity and there are those who are just looking to make a buck--pretty much like any aspect of show business, no?

That's fine by me. I've been put down for nearly everything else in my life so might as well add that to the list as well.

AC/DC has its own integrity. They are true to themselves. They are not trying to be Led Zeppelin.

Also -- and this shocks people when I tell them -- Angus Young is not and never was a drug or alcohol abuser. His brother, Malcolm, on the other hand, well . . .

I can remember back when "Stiff Upper Lip" first came out and I had a couple of friends at the time who said that It sounded like the same old thing that AC/DC has always done. And I said, that's why I like it. AC/DC didn't try to sell out and try to be and sound like someone that they're not, they stuck with the old tried-and-true formula that they do so well. Sure, it wasn't Back in Black, but it was still a fun rockin' album.

It may have hurt their popularity for a while that they didn't break new ground as they went on, but eventually the rock fans went back to them because they WANTED to hear AC/DC as they were and as they remained.

If I want Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin, I can listen to them. When I want something that is going to pump me up while I drive or shovel a driveway, that's AC [clap clap] DC . . AC [clap clap] DC . . .!

I'm really not trying to bust anyone's chops here but what does that mean? The same can be said of Kenny G.

Posted on Mar 16, 2012 12:23:05 PM PDT
KinksRock says:
Kenny G is not rock. A LOT of rock bands are trying to be Led Zeppelin . . . too many to count. AC/DC didn't follow the trend of trying to be the next big long-haired art band, but continued to do what they did best. THAT'S what that means.

Posted on Mar 16, 2012 12:34:44 PM PDT
KinksRock says:
You know, this really is the worst thread when Kenny G gets brought up in a discussion about AC/DC. Awful, awful thread! And we all suck!

And that joke from "Young Frankenstein" leads me to add that the song "Walk This Way" by Aerosmith was inspired by the line "Walk this way" by Marty Feldman in that film.

AC/DC?

Is that Beavis or Butthead?

Thanks for the explanation, I thought you were trying say that just because a band does their own thing that makes them good. I do agree musical integrity is important.

Musical integrity without talent is useless. Line from "Seinfeld": "You're not artistic and you have no integrity!"

My point exactly. ;~)

Of course if you are looking for "Music to Shovel Your Driveway By" the supplier of the music probably doesn't need either one.

"I need something hard-rocking and awesome"

It seems to me that much of rock has fallen into the same trap as most other genres of music: the bands, for the most part, are dealing with such a small part of the life experience and expressing even that, generally, in the same straight-forward fashion. Its becoming more and more, in its own way, like pop songs: the world doesn't need any more "love songs" or songs about good or bad relationships. We have enough of those already!

Its like someone mentioned Kiss earlier. I mean, do these guys have a single thought in their heads?

Kiss has at least one thought in their heads: Marketing.

Considering what they had to offer, the best marketed band of all time.
