Glad you didn’t say Photograph.
Wait. Where is @Ryann Von Doom
I’m sure he has a lot of input on this subject.
Jimmy Buffett has to be the worst. My old wrestling coach is a big fan. He actually has a little cottage up in the middle of nowhere he calls “Margaritaville North”. A couple of years ago he called me and asked me if I wanted to go to a Jimmy Buffett concert. I hardly get to see him anymore so I said sure. I’m not kidding, we get there and our tickets were literally in the last row of the upper deck of the Sky Dome We were so far away that the stage was just a glowing light in the distance. I’m not exaggerating when I say that it was literally hell on earth. We couldn’t see shit, and the whole crowd is drunk 50 year old Ontarians wearing parrots on their heads and pretending they are in the Bahamas. Oh and I had just quit drinking too. The show was 3 hours and I sat there and watched shitfaced grandmas in Hawaiian shirts dance in the aisles losing their minds while Jimmy Buffett sings about what he likes on his fucking cheeseburger.
If you don’t know him, this is all you need to know.
Who gives a fuck where that goof is?
He will make @The Pink Panther seem like less of a music snob.
Arguably the greatest band to come out of the grunge era
Alice In Chains says nope. Pixies beats them all.
He really is terrible. He had a hotel/resort down here called Margaritaville. I think he sold his share of it though.
Fucking place is full year-round and the average room is $350/night or more. The developers made some shady deal that the city of Hollywood (FL) ended up having to pay for most of the construction.
I'm sure @Never_Rolled is a VIP there
Alice in Chains funkin blow
I said arguably. Alice in chains is up there. Nirvana as well. Pearl Jam just happens to be my favorite band of that era.
Funk Alice in Chains
You might be right. I thought they sang Heart Shaped Box but then I realized that was Nirvana
We towed our bikes down there and road past it. That's the closest I got.
Van Halen might be the worst band ever. Dave may be the goat frontman that saved the rest of those fucks from irrelevance
Love me some Buffett.
But going there sober would be tough. And you certainly can't go to an indoor show.
Pre-concert margaritas with lawn seats is the proper way to see a Buffett show. I've seen him 4 or 5 times. Always a blast. Haven't seen him in about 20 years though, so his schtick might be old.
Are you trying to piss me off?
Replace Dave with Sammy and you have 80s nickleback.
Eddie has more talent in his pinky than that entire band.
Michael Anthony was a JD guzzling maniac.
Alex loved cymbal crashes before it was cool.
DLR was the perfect frontman for a party band.
Sammy added a touch of professionalism when they wanted to play some "serious" music.
I don't acknowledge the Cherone years, even though he killed it on Extreme's first 2 albums.
They sucked, deal with it
If anyone says Eagles then @Wild and I shall ban them and they will be dead to me
And not sure if this is considered a band but holy fuck Willie Nelson is terrible. He should have just stuck to writing songs for other people to sing.
I just listened to a few Van Haven songs to figure out if I like them or not. They are so shitty. I have heard bands in dirty pubs that are as good, besides of course the guitar playing. The singing sucks no matter which singer they had, the songs remind me of chicks wearing mom jeans and dudes wearing Nike air shoes.
Fuck that band.
