But the name "zaz" torques me right off

If you look hard enough, somewhere in the world, someone is offended by anything.

But if you made it 17 years without anyone else complaining about "spaz" I think you're good.

He flows like water.

Gotta say, I sure hope I can move half as well at 76 as Mick Jagger does. Dude is silk.

I mean, how could it have been?

You guys know what would be cool? If someone, like, say, a new mod who hangs out in here changes the artwork and backgrounds on the forum to reflect the new album artwork and keep this place up to date! Doesn't that require minimum coding skills, even if it's finding out what hex codes to change th...

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

Am I the only one that feels a little.. underwhelmed by the promotion of this new album? Aside from the initial comments from Mark about Walk the Sky having a "John Carpenter-esque" inspiration and Godspeed being "different from anything [I've] written before", there's been very...

The Alarm

I'm seeing The Rolling Stones tonight. Kind of a bucket list gotta-see-them-once-in-my-life sort of thing.

They'll be the second best UK band I see this weekend.

Re: 15th anniversary of One Day Remains

ODR is still my favorite AB album, though the sentimentality of it and the things it meant to me personally when I heard it carry as much of that weight as does the music. Mark's guitars and the overall musicianship still stand up to every other AB record, and I still prefer Myles' voice on this one...

My son started his senior year of high school today.

Re: AB VI Studio/Recording Thread

On the synths, I liked it and want to hear it more in a longer song that also has a solo There are no synths in Pay No Mind, it's all guitars (with crazy effects). Really? Do we have a source for that? TT said something to that effect on one of the Facebook threads. I understood it to mean that the...

Surprisingly, no one has change his or her mind

If only there were a rational, measured, polite discussion going on in another thread on this very topic.

But there is a pretty animated and heated and contentious discussion over the last 10 pages or so in the AB VI Studio/Recording thread about just this question.

It's tough to be an insect around here.

Yeah, it looks like BennyWhatever coined Grasshopper Apocalypse.

It's fun to search some of the old terms and go back and reread those threads. We've had a lot of good times around here.

36 times?! I salute you, sir! :bow I'll definitely give you DeGarmo. He was a special talent and his playing and his songwriting can't be replaced. But Tate trailed off so much both as a singer and a songwriter (and as a bandmate) that it taints his legacy and replacing him allowed the band its rena...

Re: The Random Alter Bridge Thread

I know I'm far from the first to say anything like this but I just have to give a shout out to this band for making songs that get you through tough times so well. I just got out of a 2 year relationship (an eternity for me) and have been seriously struggling ever since. AB has been my favorite ban...
