He does it regularly. Most of you do, it’s just that people don’t notice because you have better PR :wink:


#865

Yes, that was obvious from the article. I just thought it was funnier to riff on it not being a “variety” :stuck_out_tongue:


#866

Nonsense, that accolade can only belong to prog.


#867


#868

Technical metal laughs at your “Prog” and then goes through it’s pockets and steals the best stuff :smiley:


#869

So ‘technical metal’ seems to be all noise and then a bit of Celtic folk music played on a saxophone in the middle.


#870

That was jazz not folk music :stuck_out_tongue:


#871

Pretty sure I’ve posted this before, but:


#872

In ancient times, hundreds of years before the dawn of history, lived a strange race of people: the Druids. No one knows who they were or what they were doing - but their legacy remains.


#873

To be fair though, that band is pretty shit. I mean, yes they play very well and they’ve become popular because of the sax, but other than that it’s boring and bland, like any other prog/technical band.

I was very disappointed when I heard the album after how it got hyped. I guess some people had never heard a sax before that… :smile:


#874

That would mean they’ve never watched a US sitcom!


#875

It’s kinda stupid, considering Ghost had a song off their new album with a sax solo in it, which also got a lot of attention, but for some reason people got all hyped and amazed at that prog band for also having some sax bits. At this point we’re one band away of it becoming a trend… =P


#876

I will see your saxophone and raise you an accordian…

Had to know R. Kelly would make it to Change.org:

Let’s make it equal. If we’re gonna ban R. Kelly, we need to ban Jerry Lee Lewis, the Rolling Stones, Elvis, Aerosmith and Ted Nugent.

I saw this on Facebook:

In 1957, 23 year old Jerry Lee Lewis married his cousin, 13 year old Myra Brown. She still believed in Santa.

In 1959, Elvis Presley met his future wife. He was 25 and she was 14.

In 1975, Steven Tyler purchased the guardianship of a 16 year old girl (Julia Holcomb) from her mother when he was 27 so that he could legally take her with him across state lines while he was on tour.

Colored over a “grand romance” and a “decades long relationship”, Celine Dion was 12 years old when 38 year old Rene Angelil became her manager. They went public with their relationship when she was 19.

In 1984, Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman started dating Mandy Smith. She was 13. Although they did not marry until she was 18, Mandy says she was 14 when they first had sex. Mr. Wyman has never been investigated, much less prosecuted.

In 1991, 32 year old director Luc Besson met and eventually married model Maïwenn Le Besco when she was 15. Their relationship inspired his movie Léon: The Professional (1994), which followed an emotional relationship between an adult man and a young girl.

In 1993, Jerry Seinfeld picked up a high school student in a public park. He was 39 and she was 17. He and Shoshanna Lonstein dated for four years – through her college years.

Noted pedophile R Kelley secretly married R&B singer Aaliyah in 1994 when she was 15 and he was 27. They met when she was 14 and he helped write and produce her first album – “Age Ain’t Nothing but a Number.”

In 1997, Woody Allen should have become notorious when he married his step-daughter. Though she was 21 at the time of the wedding, the two met when she 8. No matter the spin, the facts are stark.

It’s the early-mid 2000s and “That 70s Show” actor, Wilmer Valderrama, continues to date teenage girls in an effort to deny that he is now over 30. He dated 16-year-old Mandy Moore despite being four years her senior. At age 24, Valderrama dated 17-year-old Lindsay Lohan though they kept the relationship a secret until her 18th birthday in 2004. In 2010, the 30-year-old began dating 17-year-old Demi Lovato.

Back in 2004, 26 year old Joel Madden and Hilary Duff did the familiar dance of being “just friends” until her 18th birthday in 2006.

Rapper Tyga and Kylie Jenner began “hanging out” an awful lot beginning in 2014 when she was 16 and he was 24. They dated on and off after that, though they became a lot more openly “on” after her 18th birthday in 2016.

2018 – yesterday, 14 year old Millie Bobby Brown innocently revealed that rapper, Drake, age 31, has been with her, for the last year giving her advice about boys. They are friends, she says. He texts her, “I miss you.” This is the same Drake who has, more than once, skated around that “just friends until she turns 18” line – most recently with 18 year old model Bella Harris.

Cannot disagree more. That’s an absolutely amazing album. I don’t normally like tech/prog stuff but Where Owls is brilliant. Incredible imagination and none of the songs sound like each other.
It’s brilliant. So there :stuck_out_tongue:


#881

Everyone seems not to remember the Jimmy Page kidnapping a minor story…


#882

Bowie had her first, didn’t he?

And then there’s that 1980 Don Henley incident and Bill Wyman’s thirteen year old girlfriend…

I think people just sort shrugged and looked the other away at this stuff in the 70s and early 80s.

oh, I forgot to plug my albums of the year blog post. How silly :smiley:
