Re: What do you think of my new website!

Facebook?

I am making the assumption that your band is a "local" band. If not, get a professional in.

Re: Lazy Guitarists...

It's all a bit like the rock-and-roll-no-longer-very-rock-and-roll thread.

Now, the real question is this: Are audiences numbed by "live" music such as that shown on Latvian X Rated Idols Got...

Re: Lazy Guitarists...

Aren't all of these things a question of degree?

Adjusting tuning on stage is ok, I guess, as long as we're talking about an adjustment and not replacing the strings...and as long as volume is...

Re: New find! 80's Wailin Smash video = ultimate epicness :)

Andy, you poor, poor thing. That is just awful. Please accept my condolences.

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

Pretty much every musical act on the planet simplifies aspects of their recorded works when they perform them live. A recording and a live performance are miles apart, and have been...

Re: All-Consuming Hate Kills the Artistís Creativity
