21 Apr 2006, 15:53 by benadian...and I really enjoyed it. Is it OK to like Cheap Trick? I mean, Rick Nielsen in particular seems like a really awesome guitarist, but then I was reading his bio on allmusic and there was some stuff about him playing on a Motley Crue (more like Motley Grue) album. And I hate Motley Crue and I really believe they deserve to be hated. So now I don't know what to think... should I hate Cheap Trick, based solely on this feeble connection to a pukeworthy gang of creeps? No? What do YOU think?
25 Mar 2006, 20:56 by Night_Songs_There's been a power struggle on my top 10 Artists for quite some time
Aerosmithand AC/DChave been in a constant swapping position on my top artists. Before, they were fighting for the 6 spot, but now that Cheap Trickhas taken it, theyre fighting for number 7.
Which brings me to the reason of this journal. Who was the best rock band of the 1970s? They were many good ones. Kiss,Cheap Trick,AC/DC,Aerosmith,, Boston. Too many to name in fact.
In terms of my favorite, Cheap Trick is numero uno, as our Spanish friends would so kindly put it. I just got into them a little while ago, but since then I really can't stop listening to them.
In terms of talent, Aerosmithis at the number 1 spot. I mean, you've got arguably the greatest frontman of all time with Steven Tyle, and arguably the best guitarist of all time with Joe Perry. Together they're great, but Tom, Joey, and Brad really bring it together and impress me in ways that no other band could.

3 Mar 2006, 02:58 by lazyhazycrazyI guess not attending many shows will make the ones I do attend more special. I'm especially excited to be able to see Aerosmith in concert (on March 19th). I bet it's going to be wild and so much fun. A much needed break from mundane life and stressful school.
Cheap Trick aren't bad as well. ;)
EDIT: Bah. Show was canceled. I'm bummed.

13 Feb 2006, 23:50 by smearedblueYou have one ear to the world and the other in your headphones. Stable in your balance of work and musical enlightenment. Then your Editor, or such walks up beside your desk to address a coworker. And almost premeditated she just happens to coincidentally, simultaneously utter the exact same word as the song playing in your headphones.
These small things are what makes the world interesting. To me, single handedly proving the chaos that the universe was built on. Or more importantly the beauty that chaos can produce. It's the same simple idea behind something being better when it is unexpected. A chance, coincidence, random happening. And for me, I do notice it happens frequently regarding music. The above happened to me approximately 5 months ago. When deciphering life's mysteries one must think like existence. It wasn't some common word like platypus either. She just happened to say birthmark at the same time as John K. of The Weakerthans. …

16 Jan 2006, 09:16 by jewofunkHonorary Mention Queen 341
Queen gets an honorary mention simply due to the fact that they were in my Top 10 before this past week and they've been one of my favorites for years. I came to love Queen due to my participation in High School Drama. Not drama like "OMGZ, Becky's a whore" but Drama like Theatre.
Apparently, it's a rule that if you participate in Theatre at my former High School, that you must love Queen. Now, I've listened to Queen since I was a small child, so it wasn't really a problem. I was introduced to them at a young age from hearing Bohemian Rhapsody on the radio and begging my grandfather to get me a CD of theirs. Luckily, he had their Greatest Hits to I quickly became to listen to the band frequently. Once High School hit, it went to a whole other level since everyone I was surrounded by listened to them nonstop. It had something to do with the whole Musicial Theatre thing, but I never sang, so I didn't get that.
