Happy Birthday, Eddie Izzard!

Eddie Izzard

British Comedian/Actor, Marathon Runner and Action Transvestite Eddie Izzard was born on this day, February 7th, in 1962. That makes him exactly one day younger than Axl Rose! Just take a look at the two of them and see who is better preserved at this still relatively young age! I just saw Eddie perform here in NYC on Monday of this week while car shopping and he was completely hilarious! Happy Birthday, Eddie!

Happy Birthday, Axl Rose

Axl Rose Rock In Rio
Remember when we thought This Guy was the Crazy Axl Rose? Ah, memories.

William Bruce Bailey, also known as Axl Rose, celebrates another Birthday today, having been born on February 6th, 1962. I feel bad that Axl has lost his mind and become such a dick, but I guess we can always look back on Appetite for Destruction, which is a work of genius, and remember the good times. Happy Birthday Axl. Have some cake.

Happy Birthday, Steven Adler!

Original Guns ‘N’ Roses Drummer Steven Adler was born on this day, January 22nd in 1965. Adler (real name: Michael Coletti) has the dubious distinction of being the first member of the band to be fired by singer Axl Rose, setting a trend that would continue until Rose was the only remaining original member left in the group by the late ’90s. Happy Birthday, Steven!

Guns N’ Roses Release Appetite for Destruction

“My Way, Your Way, Anything Goes Tonight.”

On this Date, July 21st in 1987: Guns N’ Roses released their landmark debut album Appetite for Destruction, which would later spend five weeks on top of the Billboard 200 album chart. As of September 2008 the album is certified 18 times platinum. The band Guns N’ Roses in their original line-up – Axl, Slash, Duff, Steven and Izzy – were inarguable the greatest hard rock band of that era. The fact that Axl Rose could and would willingly destroy that band is proof enough to me that the man is mentally ill. You can read my interview with original GNR guitarist Slash from February 2001 at This Link.

Can Somebody say “Axl Rose Publicity Stunt”?

According to This story from the LA Times, Kevin Cogill, a 27-year-old blogger suspected of streaming songs on his Web site allegedly from the unreleased, ten-years-plus-in-the-making Guns N’ Roses album, Chinese Democracy was arrested Wednesday (8/27). Somehow, this non-story has made national news overnight, so I can’t help but suspect that this might be just another one of eccentric douchebag Axl Rose’s desperate machinations designed to keep him and his band of posers in the public eye while he wanks away on an album that any sane person realizes will never see the light of day. Yawn city.

What is that Bucket Doing on his Head?

A Rad Blog Guest Entry By Sir Millard Mulch

Buckethead’s fans think he is a unique, underground artist with pure intentions. This is not true. Buckethead is a strategic advertisement for himself.

It has nothing to do with his music and everything to do with his visual appearance — the same scam as every other Rock Star. He’s an accidental genius phenomenon of masterful marketing tricks; on a higher level than any mersh band on the radio could conceive of. Afterall, if he didn’t have a BUCKET ON HIS HEAD and a weird mask, no one would give a fuck what he did. His performances are merely a spliced-together collection of visual gags, one after the other. He does the stretchy guitar strap thing, he breakdances the robot, he throws toys into the audience, he plays blindingly fast atonal blasts of laser-beam licks, then plays some heavy metal riffs… then stands around uncomfortably. Can anyone think of anything else? You can count his tricks on one hand.

Try and pick him out from a crowd with only your ears, without having known about the bucket on his head — if you think you can find anything unique in what he does, you have a very limited music history / listening vocabulary. Try and play one of his songs on a piano and see how bored you are with the outcome. He is a sideshow freak to gawk at for amusement, and nothing to take seriously as a real artist. He is not an artistic phenomenon, but a social / advertising one — and just because he has not gone Triple-Platinum (yet) does not mean he is not one of the bad guys in this War. He’s one minuscule step away from having his own reality show on MTV — and if you don’t believe me, ask yourself why Axl Rose hired him to replace Slash, and why he AGREED to it! If you go to the following site you’ll find The Official Guns & Roses Buckethead Shirt: (Please Click Me). Does anyone need any more proof of his “pure childlike intentions?” Rumor has it that $13 Million dollars have been spent on the production of the new Guns & Roses album, Chinese Democracy. What do you think Buckethead’s cut is — and why would he be involved in such a contrived and obviously mainstream endeavor if not for the money? Make no mistake — this is a business, and Buckethead is a very cunning businessman to have gotten this far.
