Sufjan Stevens' latest collection of christmas songs (58 of them) is out now. Some cheesy stuff among them, but what an amazing musician he is.

Speaking of P. Palladinos, remember Pete Palladino?



Always liked that song. I saw him as Pete Palladino and the Jellybricks in state college at the good old Crowbar.

Oh, then it is the newest one :pop: I think its catchy... and thats why I find it listenable

I don't dig most of Lupe's political ****.

The only political Rappers I liked were/are Tupac, Nas, and kid cudi and a few others but thats the gist (I know that last one right? :pop:)

Some of the album is great and close to the level of his first 2 albums (like Strange Fruition, Form Follows Funcion, and Cold War) but some of it makes me cringe so hard (like the chorus on Audubon Ballroom and all of Female dog Bad).

My favorite political Lupe song is "Words I Never Said"

Tupac :thumb:
Nas :thumb:
Kid Kudi: never got into him.

A list of political rappers without Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Black Thought of The Roots and Common?

Trent Reznor mentioned on a Reddit AMA that he is "helping out Josh" on the new QOTSA album. So Grohl on drums, Reznor adding to a track or two...sounds cool. Very cool.

Travis Barker is a quality drummer. Kerry King wanted him to try out for Slayer when Paul Bostaph left.

Phil Collins is a quality drummer, too. If only he had sticked to it.

He actually retired due to neck problems. He can't hold drumsticks because of disc/nerve issues in his neck.

Good to see Steward Copeland on there. One of my favorites.

Would it be in bad taste to suggest that there might be a God after all?

I was a huge early-mid 1980s Genesis/Collins fan, but after that...I agree with that sentiment. He really is a good drummer, and could write a good pop hook. But the formula got old, like everything else.

I read an interesting article/interview with him from a year or so ago, where he was almost despondent about his place in popular music:

Medically, he's got a few serious and life-altering problems: The hearing in his left ear is shot, and a dislocated vertebra in his neck has rendered him all but unable to pound on the drums that first made him famous. But those aren't the reasons why.

Mainly, it's because he's had it with people thinking they know who Phil Collins is. And not in a good way. He has been called "the Antichrist," the sellout who took Peter Gabriel's Genesis, that paragon of prog-rock, and turned it into a lame-o pop act and went on to make all those supercheesy hits that really did define the 1980s. So, he wants to move on. He could make another original album, but he knows that will bring a rehashing of all the old criticism. It's inescapable. Forget it. He'd rather spend his time in his basement, building up his collection of Alamo memorabilia, which, oddly enough, is his great consuming passion these days. "I sometimes think, 'I'm going to write this Phil Collins character out of the story,'" he says. "Phil Collins will just disappear or be murdered in some hotel bedroom, and people will say, 'What happened to Phil?' And the answer will be, 'He got murdered, but, yeah, anyway, let's carry on.' That kind of thing."

And yes, he collects Alamo artifacts, and has even written a book about the battle. :shock:

A lot of talent on that list that's for sure. I wonder if Pearl Jam was touring and Soundgarden was more active if Matt Cameron would've made the list.

Fishman and both drummers from The Dead on there goes to show how profitable non-stop touring can be if you have a rabid fanbase. Neither bands has made crap from records. That's almost purely ticket sales.
