It did get us Tony McGee as a regular contributor though so that was good.
The big merger between skins.com and extremeskins kinda threw a damper on things as well if I remember correctly, since we basically got locked out of being able to send JC to camp.

Re: New Linkin Park?

tickets for the Projekt Revolution tour featuring Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, Taking Back Sunday, HIM, Placebo, Julien-K, Mindless Self Indulgence, The bled, Saosin, Styles of Beyond, Madina Lake, and other bands went on sale today. I'll be there 4 the Tues Aug. 14th @ the VA Beach amphitheater if ayone else is going.
and I've only listened to half of it so far but I'm digging the cd more than I thought I might from the way people on the radio have been talking about it.

Re: New Linkin Park?

This is just my opinion, and I'm sorry if I upset any big Linkin Park fans, but I pretty much think that they're one of the worst bands I've ever heard in my entire life. I think someone described it as "nu metal." Well, I think that whole genre sucks. I'm 22, but I grew up listening classic rock bands like LedZep, Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, you know, good bands. When I hear these new bands who aren't nearly as technically proficient with their instruments, and just flat out cannot rock as hard, well it I get a little sad to see that this is what rock music has evolved into. Every time Linkin Park records a new song, a puppy dies

That really doesn't offend me at all, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Personally, I don't get into much of the older stuff. I like Hendrix and The Doors, but that's about as far as I go. I, personally, don't like Skynyrd at all.

Re: New Linkin Park?

Yep, to each his own especially when it comes to music.

I really liked classic rock stuff back in high school, The Doors, Led Zep, Pink Floyd, etc.

Over time music evolves, personally I like to follow that evolution rather than pinning myself down to just one period of time or genre of music.

I don't pin myself down to one time period or genre of music, I just don't enjoy new alternative music or "nu metal." But I pretty much listen to everything except that genre of music. I think classic rock will always be my favorite, by I also love country and rap/hip-hop, and I know there's lots of people who don't like either of those genres.

Re: New Linkin Park?

That's cool... but I don't think it's fair to say those guys aren't technically proficient or they don't rock, they just rock in a way that you don't like.

Well, I play the guitar, and I enjoy listening to music with excellent guitarists who are very technically proficient. So, compared to what I like to listen to, I'll never say that Linkin Park is technically proficient, however, if you think they rock, then yeah, you could say that they rock, but in a way I don't like.

Re: New Linkin Park?

I would say more than anything LP is a guilty pleasure. Are they anything revolutionary? Not really. Are there bands more technically sound and of a higher level of musicianship? Of course.

Re: New Linkin Park?

I do not believe in the whole genre thing. The way I look at it, a good song is a good song, and good music is good music. Example; Just because I might support Pink Floyd's early albums doesn't mean I will defend the band for the later stuff that they put out.

In Linkin Parks case. I liked their first two albums, as far as the new one, there are some good songs on it as well. But I dont like them all. But hell there isn't a single group out there that has convinced me with all of their music

I mean Led Zeppelin didn't write tunes everybody liked. They left that to the Bee Gees.

Re: New Linkin Park?

Speaking of Linkin Park, here's a good story on what their lead singer has had to deal with the past couple of years.

"Sandia National Laboratories is one of the Department of Energy's three nuclear weapons research facilities. Located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, it was created in 1949 by J. Robert Oppenheimer, former head of the nearby Los Alamos lab, as a center for developing the technology that goes into nuclear bombs. The lab is run by the Sandia Corporation, which is owned by defense contractor Lockheed Martin.

The thought of someone inside a top-secret nuke lab spending their days stalking a rock singer was ludicrous. Dimitrelos figured it must be a hacker who was using a Sandia machine as a proxy to protect their own IP address and identity. This wasn't just about a nu-metal rock star and his family anymore; it was a national security issue. He had to let Sandia know that someone had compromised one of its computers."
