  1. How Andrew Dice Clay Reunited Guns N’ Roses

    Didn't Fred Durst claim it at one point too?!

    Lucky you. I'm in a similar position, but that doesn't exclude me from sympathizing or understanding other's difficulties and issues. Absolutely. That sums it up.

    Well the person DEEMING what someone is worth is often in a position of ludicrous wealth and power, to the point where people have no choice but to work for that pay. It's nothing to do with DEEMING anything - it's to do with how little they can legally pay someone. I's not up to people to make the decision whether they want to work for that though is it? What are they going to do if they think it's too low and they're in area or position where it's the only job they can do, or find? Say no and starve? Honestly, these arguments are such bollocks - the only people that ever spout them ae the super rich.

    The idea that people 'are paid what they're worth' is just nonsense. as shown time and time again by the exploitation of lower paid workers. The notion that 'if they don't like it they should make themselves more valuable' is ridiculous - if they don't like it, someone else will take their job immediately. Probably on a lower wage. We don't live in an economy where workers are valuable anymore - many people simply have to struggle to get by on what they have from the job they have managed to attain, sometimes against nearly impossible odds. To suggest it's their fault that they aren't being paid well is simply wilful ignorance - the sort of claptrap that those at the very top of the financial pile always trot out to justify their own position and do nothing about the growing wage inequality that is causing major issues across the globe. Plus, it's damn offensive to hard working people.

    That's quite obviously total bullshit.

    I think it's OK to criticize people for paying those prices though, if you think the prices are crazy. We all do it in that life- 'look at that clown, he spent $900 on those crappy sunglasses' etc. if you pay a huge amount for something, there's usually people that are going to say you're mad for doing so!

    Going to every show is one thing. Not being able to afford to go to even one show because the ticket is so expensive is something else.

    A lot of things are luxury items. Doesn't mean to say they have to be insanely priced.
  9. NITLT 8 New dates Announced

    No one. People do care that they can no longer go and see their favourite band because of absolutely extortionate prices though. GNR live seems to be a rich mans game now - that's truly sad. As you say yourself, it doesn't make you any more or less of a fan to be rich......but sadly it does mean you're the only one able to see them live. Not sitting on a fortune and like GNR? Time to step aside, you're not welcome or wanted.

    Indefensible pricing. If people pay it, they must be mad, and they're encouraging these prices,
  11. I think it'll deal with politics in some way. It seems to be the direction they're going in on a personal level, so I'd be surprised if it doesn't feature in some way. Agree absolutely. It seems you have to be to one extreme or another; debate, discussion and understanding seem to have vanished. Or at least that's what we're told. Of my friendship group, and people I encounter, most of them are somewhere in the centre, decent people who can somehow maintain a sense of humour about all this. That gives me tremendous hope as you say. I think that's why I enjoyed Duff's album a lot actually - that seems to me the point he's trying to make. We live in a moronic age where cretins like Trump are in charge, and encourage wilful ignorance of facts, experts and debate....but it will pass, as most people aren't actually like that. These idiots are actually the minority, as are the idiots on the extreme left.
  12. I love being told not to mention Trump by someone with a big picture of him on their post. Unfortunately it would seem your favourite band are rather anti-Trump. It's something you're going to have to process.
  13. Not really! He's comparing Iron Maiden to a political organisation in terms of how they operate, not saying he doesn't like politics in music. They wrote Civil War not long after this, so have always been somewhat political. More so now of course, but these are fucked up times, so it would be surprising if they weren't.
  14. If you apply that logic there would be virtually no music you could listen to, so that's obviously nonsense. i can't think of one band, of any importance, that haven't touched on politics in one way or another. With that moronic, imbecilic, borderline psychotic maniac in office in the USA it's no surprise that most American musicians are saying something right now. He's pretty much what any artistic and creative person have spent their formative years rallying against - and this is absolutely going to come across in their art, like it or not. Your privilege as a consumer is that you can choose to ignore their art if you wish. Unfortunately that may well leave you leave you consuming from a very limited pool of absolute shit who labour under the belief that things are going well however. Most creatives are going to call this bullshit we're living with for what it is, and that's their right as a human being. If that's something you can't deal with, it's probably time to stop listening to music.
  15. We've also got the "when" of course!
