Saw the show last night. Both bands were great. AIC's new singer fits the bill perfectly. For both bands the bass drum was too loud and overpowered the bass guitar. Velvet Revolver did some G&R and STP which was great.

 

 

Was the AIC lineup Jerry, Mike or Mike, Sean, and the new singer?

I think I have a MUST SEE concert to look for.

 

I've seen the new lineup a time or two ;) and I will say that it is pretty much as good as AIC has ever been. William is not Layne, but he can definitely do the job, plus there is the bonus of adding in some extra guitar to fill out the sound a bit.

 

Plus being out with VR, even though a lot of people talk {censored} about them, just makes it even better, they are playing some GNR and STP along with their own stuff. Should make for an exciting show.

He's not a pompous ass. He's a heroine addict/recluse with serious back problems!

 

 

One can be a heroine addict with serious back problems and still be a pompous ass.

 

I've seen my share of interviews and live footage of Phil, and I recently rewatched all three of the Pantera home videos. Phil is a pompous ass.

I love the home videos!!! I need to watch them again. It's been a long time...

 

 

They're great fun! My g/f got me the "3 vulgar videos from hell" dvd, which has all three of them on there, on two discs. It was fun watching the first one, how young they were. Also you could tell that that was still before Phil started taking himself too seriously. I watched all three of them in one sitting, and you can really see how his attitude changed over the years.

 

If you can (and haven't), you should try to watch the "Behind The Music" that VH1 did on them not long ago. Some interesting back story on everything, and recent interview footage of everyone, including Phil. You can barely recognize the energetic young powerhouse frontman he once was. It's pretty sad what he has become. Still {censored}ing pompous and arrogant though.

Yeah...I've seen it. It made me cry at the end! I'll agree about Phil though...

Yeah, I teared up a little, too. Watching the home videos was kind of sad in that way, as well...

 

What I thought was disappointing in the last part of the "Behind The Music" was how the whole "Phil vs The Other Guys" issue came down to a "he said, she said" pissing contest. I mean, how old are these guys? And the fact that they didn't let Phil attend Dime's funeral was kinda poor form too, no matter what happened in the past.

Agreed! I also met most of the road crew guys...they were pompous assholes!!! It was like they were the ones playing the show that night! It was pretty funny.

AIC has always been a favorite.


Layne Staley would have been 40 --yesterday was his b-day.


R.I.P. Layne.

 

 

Yep, this weekend is the 6th Annual Layne Staley Tribute concert at the Showbox in Seattle. The Layne Staley fund is set up to aid drug recovery for Seattle musicians. Daughtry and Soulbender (Michael Wilton, of Queensryche, band) are performing.

I don't know about that...from what I understand, the personal issues were only part of the motivation. Safety was another big part. By the time Dime's funeral rolled around, the killer's motives had become clear: he blamed Dime for Pantera's breakup. Anyone who was paying attention knew that Phil was more to blame. Hence, by the transitive property, Phil killed Dime.

 

Not a clear-cut association, by any means, and I'm not saying that it's the truth. However, it was posited that having Phil at the funeral might be grounds for further violence, not amongst the former bandmates, but from former fans. After all, who knows how many more {censored}ed-up pissed-off homicidal fans who were waiting for a chance to off Phil attended that funeral?

 

In any case, RIP Dime.

To actually get back on the topic, good to see AIC back in the game and on top of it.
