One of my favorite pastimes on the internet is logging on to Ultimate-Guitar.com and reading the articles. It is a good place to keep up with some real music news, when most other music sites these days seem more interested in Lady Gaga's wardrobe and 12-year olds going multiplatinum.
Now I don't mean to sound like an old fart but really, I don't get the crappy mainstream music out there these days. You can go ahead flame me for this but I dont see any real musicianship out there.
So, we were saying, UG does have some kickass articles and news feeds, but any regular reader of the site will know that more than the articles, the comments sections are the real deal.
While the articles themselves are plagued with typos, misinterpretations and anachronisms, often with a misleading title to boot, the comments they always contain something that will make your day. and sometimes, week.
Frankly, I don't think any of these communities would survive if it wasn't for the species called Flamers. they are the life of the party!
Flame wars are hilarious things to watch too.
In UG, whenever an article is posted about an artist, some wise-ass comes in and types in a hate comment.
Soon you see the whole community poised in a battle between the so-called Elitists and Fanboys.
Believe me, there's nothing funnier than watching a fanboy go down in battle, hopelessly trying to defend his favorite band, getting pelted with insults.
Alright, that's a bit mean. but funny nonetheless! XD
Flaming is widespread, but more common when the article involves bands like Avenged Sevenfold, SlipKnoT, Black Label Society, and lately, even Slayer.
and don't even get me started on the Metallica vs. Megadeth debate, they seem to go on forever.
After years of indulging in this hobby, there is only one band that I haven't seen getting bashed, and that is Rush. Such amazing musicianship, I'm not a bit surprised.
Anyway, I read this article on UG the other day, and this post was originally intended to talk about it, but guess I got carried away and ended up typing this wall of text instead.
Vince Neil working two jobs in jail
Vince Neil turned himself in to the Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas about 10 a.m. Tuesday, to serve a two-week long sentence for drunken driving there last June.
Reportedly, Vince is worried about having to "endure" two weeks, and is planning to be a model prisoner so his sentence may get shortened.
A very concerned girlfriend worries that he is not getting proper food or sleep in the jail. and believe me, this was a top story.
According to a Twitter message from Jacobs (an entertainment reporter at KSNV-TV), Neil is "understandably tired and working two jobs." She adds, "I'm very proud of him and miss him tons!"
Okay, a lil background for those who dont know this guy.
You might recognize Vince Neil as the vocalist of the '80s hair metal band Motley Crue.
You should also know that this piece of shit is known for another incident of drunk-driving earlier. and killed a guy, injuring two others in the process.
and all that is in addition to bringing disgrace to the Metal genre by playing in the crappy band called Motley Crue for three decades, making whiny music that made them millions and got them laid.
I know a few of you might actually like Crue, but me, like 90% of the metalheads out there, despise them and all those sunset strip bands.
I mean getting all dolled up like a dame for show after show..? what the hell dude? you got unaddressed issues!
Also, I'm pissed that this prick got it easy. Two weeks in detention, and that's not even a real prison., and still he's whining like a bi*ch. Don't forget that this is his second offense.. i hope they fry him!
Guess I got a little carried away.. I just get pissed when I see these big stars buying their way outta shit.
So I'll just leave you with a couple of comments from the original article, while I go pop in Kill 'Em All on full volume.. for all I know, that record was aimed at pansy hair metal bands plaguing the scene back in the day.
You know what he reminds me of? Brett Michaels.. both white trash long haired bearded hicks in overrated 80s bands trying to get publicity.
look out Gene Simmons, Vince Neil is creeping slowly towards being the biggest douche in the universe
Don't drop the soap sugar
Jail, the one time when looking like a ****ing woman will work against him...
"My reckless behavior cost someone their life and when I do it again....they bring the hammer down on me. So unfair."
Suck it Vince. You fail at remorse.
saved the best for last ;)
2 jobs, eh? I'll put my money on blow & rim.
