So jealous that you got to interview him! I interned at Scene last summer and would have loved to talk to The Modfather himself! Good to hear that he's still going strong.
Yes Peanuts. I was at that show and got to share a swig or two of Jamesons with the band. That's about all I remember.
And ironically he is appearing at the venue where Del Amitri first appeared in Cleveland, when it was called Shooter's Live. The Gin Blossoms opened that night. Heck of a double bill.
I loved the show last night. One day is wish I could hear my curse with the Scrawl vocalist . My only complaint is the venue. I hate HOB. Who does their sound? It was so loud the instruments were muddled. However, I would go see Greg Dulli play in a bathroom at a BP if I had too
They palyed in Kent alot when I was in school there....
Great writeup. I checked out the album and overall its solid.
I went to this show at the last minute and was VERY impressed. Sad to say me and 499 others watched Thomas Bailey (of the Thompson Twins) play live for the 5th time since 1986. They were the highlight with Howard Jones having a strong set also. Best $18 I've spent in quite awhile. By the way the show started at 8pm. and didn't end till 11:50pm...Nice bang for my buck!
I've been a fan from the first time I saw them on T.V. on the "Paul Lynd Halloween Special" back in 1976 (I was 11 yrs old) . My wife in I drove down from Toronto to see the show. We missed the chance to see them locally a couple of weeks ago. However this turned out to be an amazing "road trip"! Spent a couple of days in Cleveland at the Westin hotel downtown. Went to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the morning of he show, had a late lunch on the patio at the "House of Blues" by the "Arcade", then headed to the Blossom Music Centre for the show. And what a Show it was!!!
The other "comments" from fans posted above sum up the show perfectly.
All I Really want to share with you is the fact that "CLEVELAND ROCKS"!!!
My wife and I had an amazing time. We LOVE your city and all the good people of Cleveland. Your city has a TRUE musically vibe that flows from every corner of every street to every person we met. Cleveland should not only be proud as the "home" of the Rock Hall of Fame, But the Rock & Roll museum should be proud that Cleveland is their host.
Thank you, Cleveland
Thank You, KISS
There's always two sides to any story.
Especially this one. Nobody has thus proved anything, here or on any article on Google, Facebook or YouTube.. So until I hear both sides from Dave & Nik (in person) or from a reliable source, not fans, I won't believe everything I read or hear.. 100%! So far, I've only read Nik's side of the story & seen interviews on YouTube, still I'm not sure if he's being completely honest, who knows.
I do believe things I've heard Lemmy say, e.g how he was treated unfairly when sacked, but it's been said that Lem he was unreliable.. Like I said, there's always sides of the story, so therefore, I chose to be open to all their music, if it so appeals to me, which "Space Gypsy" does & that's my own taste, in which I have the right to choose. I don't take sides.. Peace
David BeMiller...stupid, moronic, idiotic, asinine and retarded jackass!
Wow, you do realize there are other acts on the schedule with as much if not more draw than Bailey and Jones? I agree that they are both great but personally I have a front row seat to see Midge Ure.
Looks like John Lithgow will be there as well.
Hey David! If you heard their speeches you would know that Vinnie, Eric and Mark WERE mentioned! Whenever I hear idiotic rants from so-called hardcore "fans", I know they are not true fans at all. If you were, you would be glad that KISS is still around making great music and would accept ALL members. If you choose to live exclusively in the past, go ahead. Nobody's going to miss you.
Hey David, if Ace and Peter had cared more about what the fans wanted instead of drugs and alcohol you would have got your wish... they didn't, and that's why they're no longer in KISS. End of story.
Hey Paul ! You Forgot About Eric Carr, Vinnie Vincent, Mark St. John ! What About Them ? Some Damm Good Guitarist And Song Writers And One Hell Of A Drummer ! Eric Carr ! Still Not To Happy About What Happened At The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Ceremony . So How Come You And Gene Simmons Get Your Heads Out Of Your Ass And Give The KISS Fans What They Really Wanted ! The Original Members Of KISS In Makeup Playing A Couple Of Songs Together ! If It Wasn't For Ace & Peter You Might Not Of Made It That Far In The Music World ! And You Say KISS Listens To There Fans And Gives There Fans What They Want ? I Say Bullshit ! KISS Doesn't Listens To There Fans And Give Them What They Want ! And This Is Coming From A Diehard KISS Fan ! It's The Gene & Paul Show All Over Agian!
None of them are even good their raps haves no sense little Wayne is playing Dr.Sues with his terrible rhymes. I am not a fan of any of the young money members
I invented this. It was called Battle Of The Worst Bands. Did first one at Pat's In The Flats and several more at The Phantasy. John Walsh was my partner on this. The Ghoul was host. Winning band was a metal band from "France" called Ouiphuctor. Cleveland's Ugliest all girl band The Bambies came in second. Uncle Salty was a band that did Aerosmith songs with a horn section and Pull My Finger just played Inna Godda Davida until we unplugged them. There was also a little cutie named Sleazy Jesus and The Splatter Pigs. This was around 1991.
You forgot Lukas Previn on guitar and Geoff doesn't play guitar in United Nations. He sings.
If this seems like overposting, I generally publish when I've been assaulted, or when my privacy is ignored, or when my cats cry out in pain by some action of government. I've been assaulted thousands of times over the past decade now, I'm sure that estimate is accurate....the other day one of my cats was bleeding, hair missing from its back, and two of them actually have scabs on their back as a result of being shot with energy weaponry. According to one report this results from my publication of Ronald Reagan quotes and biographical facts, indisputable and in fact from wikipedia. The federal government of course has all the power in the world to stop it. My tooth was knocked out in increments, over a 2 year span by energy weaponry assaults, for stating and proving the crimes committed by the federal government, absolute torture, like having a tooth drilled without novocaine for several hours.
If you repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth, right? the Democrats' great accomplishment is producing the political equivalent of a Rodney King video, clearly demonstrating the lies of the right, the right Hilary Clinton correctly identified as a vast conspiracy. Confirm by examining Central District of California Cases, 01-4340, 03-9097, 08-5515, 10-5193, US Tax Court 12000-07L --though I think you want to view my US Tax Court Appeal to the 9th Circuit for a good account of their day to day assaults, a few month time slice indicative of a decade of assault, and more recently 9th Circuit case 11-56043.
