Re: RIP Joey Jordison of Slipknot.

Agreed, no age at all really. That's two members of the "classic" Slipknot line-up that have passed away now.

Re: RIP Dusty Hill of ZZ Top.

I'm not a ZZ Top fan at all, but this still sucks. RIP.

Re: If something's going to kill me...

This is easily the best of the tracks that I've heard from the new album so far, although listening to it again it's made me realise that - outside of Suite XVI - I'm just not into Baz's voice at all.

Soft Cell are putting out a new LP apparently - unsure if it's later this year or early next year.

Re: RIP Joey Jordison of Slipknot.

Joey Jordison was augmented by two other percussionists onstage, so his drumming with Slipknot sounded more complex than it was.

I'm fairly confident it's not going to be a particularly good one either.

Re: DARK MATTERS!!!!!

Yes but you won't get a review from a fans perspective. Lt Kudu. I would rather not read a review from a fans perspective, even if they tried their absolute best to be impartial. As for this review - it's certainly positive, but the problem is that it's so badly written that I don't believe a word ...

Re: DARK MATTERS!!!!!

Genuinely, The Stranglers couldn’t have brought out a better album than ‘Dark Matter’ and it could well be one of the finest things they’ve ever achieved. That's a press release not a review. Never thought I'd say it, but I miss the NME reviews of old. At least you knew they'd listen to music. You'...

Re: White Stallion

I think out of all the differing of opinions we have Jet will never be one of those. The guy was fucking on it from day one to the day he stepped down. Total respect to Jet Yeah, I fully agree with this. I think Jet had a unique/identifiable touch as a drummer that was part of The Stranglers unique...

Re: White Stallion

I rate Jet higher than Rat as a drummer. Also, Clem Burke in the Ramones? That'd be like getting Keith Moon to drum for '70s Fleetwood Mac. A total mismatch in my mind.
