listening 2 guns n roses at the minute and found a video for " one in a million". Its such a sad song, Is axl the one in the million??. Do not condone the lyrics - I do like the rhythm, and gentle sway of the song thou. and the angst within. Axl is the best - definently one in a milllion, its so sad it makes me want to cry :cry: i think it is a bout his hardships and travels in life.. very brave man i think they got a big backlash with this song.( and rightly so!!!), I can see how it is offensive yet, it is his story - Its very hard to be brave and say what u mean in the music industry - without rightly or justifiably offending some person, creed , or religion. Very very sad song. I see that once he played this song he was on a very solitary path - . He must have been very low when he wrote it. Guns n Roses def the most orginal unforgetable persona of a band ever... Axl , slash duff Rose mcKagan, Izzy stradlin, Steven Adler. The best and orginal line up in the world of rock ever.. so sossad sad....

but better again found video for Bob Dylans " Sara"... even sadder again, hauntingly beautiful. love it.

The bruised earth is made up of many rainbow colours,creeds, religions and adversities which makes life worth living. To encounter such colours is to really live. Just like everything in life the rainbow brings sunshine and rain. It is up 2 us to enjoy each precious moment... Says the optimist to the pessimist...

how about cornerstore by " Artic monkeys", now they rock.

I dunno ... They were the first band I really gave a shit about (13yr old me plodding along to see them at Slane in 92 on my ownsome after my mates let me down), but they really were the bloated last hurrah of hair-rock from the 80s*

I've yet to hear this new song though.



* See if you can dig out the stories from when they took an up&coming Soundgarden on tour with them in the early 90s, they are worth a read to compare & contrast the attitudes of the 2 bands.

Its all FNM with you, isn't it !!

Yeah, they were indeed ... Patton climbing into a refuse bin to sing a few tunes with the lid closed. It was an eye opener for little ol' me.

Very good indeed. I thought they had gone off the boil a bit, but they're really back on form with this. Hardly a bad song in the series yet and a few of them are up there with their best imo.

A man I randomly met on a plane told me he was really into Bluegrass.. I just nodded along knowingly but actually I hadn't a clue what he was on about :) so would be interested in recommendations too, to avoid future embarrassment.

my interest comes from Public enemies soundtrack (crappy movie), Otis Taylor, Ten million slaves

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fhiO8rT_ ... re=related

and of what i can see, it sounds a bit more modern than "normal" bluegrass. i don't want bible belt bluegrass with crazy country people... Oooo doggie! :mrgreen:
