ok glad I can be of service/??
at one time didn't thier lead singer live in the Garden District, for some reason I remember seeing the house while on our tour.
All good choices. I love Rage - and Chris Cornell (Audioslave/Soundgarden) has some of the best pipes in the bussiness.
I have heard the name The The but not sure that I have actually heard their songs. I'll check 'em out.
The crunchy riff is so great in Creep - such the right song at the right moment. I it too. I have heard the Pretender's do a live version (via Pandora radio) that is pretty powerful too. I'm normally not into covers too much but I really like that one.
I miss his hair..
He did, he did.
I read last week where Prince covered Creep at Coachella. Critics said it was amazing. I'm just curious if it was that good or not. I even like Marty Casey's version.
Yes, I think he did live in the Garden District. I met Trent at The Blue Crystal in NO after they finished up their show back in 1990. They opened up for Peter Murphy at Tipitina's....WOW. He was super friendly!!! I was so young....:roll:
blue crystal, :shock: have not thought of that place in a while...
Thats wild......the last time I saw NiN live, (B'ham 6/6/06) Peter Murphy and Bauhaus opened for TR. Peter Murphy was just awesome for the show and I know where to find rare (?) footage of them jamming together. PM me if your interested.
wow, Peter Murphy. Saw him in '85? in some bar in NYC with a girlfriend who knew Bauhaus. I had no clue, still don't, but I can say I saw PM way back when.
Now, NIN. My only interaction with them was upon coming back from a cruise to find one of my speakers had literally caught on fire while I was gone. Asked my roommate what the hell had happened and was told they were playing NIN... Instant wall went up for me in regards to NIN. Skip to today, over on the tapers forum I read about Ghost I-IV. New, ambient, out of the box business model, FLAC offering, $5, etc. Figured I'd check it out. Listened to GI for free, and am DL the FLAC's currently. Gotta give it up to any artist that makes such a cool offer to the masses and the finger to the industry at the same time.
So I went to get the Slip and both the 16/44 and 24/96 torrents failed. Are the trackers still active? It's definitely not me as I torrent all the time. Oh well, LAME it is
If your trackers are not active anymore you can always go to PirateBay....TR always loads his stuff up there. When all the servers crashed during the release of Ghosts, he got tired of people B****ing so he just put it all up there so people that use torrents could go ahead and get it.
Thanks IBD! I couldn't resist posting when I read this thread. It was the first time I had been to The Blue Crystal.....couldn't tell you where it was or how we got there. I remember standing in a circle talking with Trent Reznor and how cool it was that we just got done seeing him perform. I also remember it was daylight when we left the club. I haven't been back since.
Yes...my brother went to that same show! I wished I could have gone with him. We were both at the other show 18 years ago.
Sometimes the world is freakishly small. :shock:
Well, I just dont know how much more NiN goodness I can handle right now..... FedEx just dropped off my super deluxe Ghosts package.
I am really enjoying the NiN download! Hope everyone else it too...
I thought I would share this site that I came across - it has the news snippets for all types of rock acts.
Here's good mojo for Led Zepplin actually touring....
Every time I see this thread, I think of this, which has nothing to do with NiN:
[nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doHoE156RAo"]YouTube - AC/DC - For Those About To Rock (We Salute You)[/nomedia]
Vid isn't working for me
The image shows (I'm guessing its AC/DC?) but it won't load/play.
Thanks for the rep savvytangerine! I didn't realize it until I viewed my profile. You are the first! I am enjoying this posting stuff more and more.....I am sorry I lurked so long.
