  • Devin Townsend anyone?

    Not exactly his best moment, but it made me laugh pretty hard.



    I just 'discovered' this guy about a week ago and he's a pretty interesting dude. I suppose that there are a lot of people that know all about him so I won't get too in depth, but what impressed me was how frickin diverse he is. Plus as much as he seems to try to be insiteful at the end of the day he's just a sarcastic bastard which is always a plus in my book.

    Any fans?

      He's brilliant, crazy, and self-mocking. I "discovered" him about 6 months ago. Great stuff.

        The first thing he did was sing on a Steve Vai album. Then he formed Strapping Young Lad, and then the Devin Tonsend Project. he has been around many years. He looks much better without the skullet.

            Yeah, I just caught up with a bit of the history on him earlier. I didn't know about him and Vai at first, but as soon as he started talking about in an interview it because kind of obvious for some reason.

            But the funny part is that I had heard of SLY years ago. For some reason I had them confused with some other crappy bands like UB40 or something like that for some reason. I mean just music that I would never listen to.

            Now SLY isn't my new favorite band or anything, but they aren't anything like I expected it to be. To be quite honest I think that I was just stunned with how far off I was.

                The man is one of the greatest singers, could do opera with ease. But instead he chooses to spend most of his time screaming louder, harder, and longer than most.

                He sang for Vai, and not only that the man can play guitar as well. In fact, he's a better guitarist than most as well... but devotes his time to writing some of the heaviest sludgiest most intensively metal **************** imaginable.

                Then, to top it off, he quits drugs, disbands his band and his solo project, and goes home to call it a day.

                A year later, after getting bored, he comes back with a NEW solo project, and releases two albums within a 1 year span... KI and Addicted. The first was a mix from heavy to stray cats grooves to something pretty friggin close to ENYA thrown in there. The second album was basically his attempt at a pop album.

                  i saw him in NYC with Vai back in 1993.

                  He climbed on top of a stack of stage monitors about 20 feet high in a huge afro wig.. he then picked his nose and ate it.

                    Knew about him from his work on the Vai album sex and religion. I actually have a bootleg of that tour and he rips up as second guitarist right along with Vai.

                    Picked up Ziltoid the Omniscient a few months ago. Probably his best album of the others I have (synchestra, accelerated evolution, dtp - addicted). It is a cool themed album with his unique sense of humor.

                            Hevy Devy is the man. 'Ki' was probably my Album of the Year last year. So, *so* good.

                              So?

                              You're listening to one's music, not personality.
