Re: Defend your band...

Nice choices, KÖÖSKI TWIN! You can be the forum DJ any day! Adrian 9: ABBA is a great band, with two of the most competent song writers this side of Lennon and McCartney.

Defend your band...

I was overcome by a sudden urge to create a thread where people may introduce and "defend" a band, musician or composer that has somehow managed to gain their undying appreciation, approval and admiration. I will instigate matters by posting this video about why we should all celebrate the perennial...

Re: Cyprus Bankrupt?

I have seen this story on the news the past couple of days and it seemed very tragic. It seems the government is planning on taking people's pensions to pay down the country's debt. It kinda scares me, too. If the government can do such a thing in Cyprus what's to stop the government from seizing p...

Re: New Van Halen album out now...

I have heard the new album; I said it before, I would have rather heard it as an instrumental album, because the music sounds great. But then Dave comes along and ruins it with his sh*tty vocals. I was never a Roth fan, but you can tell age has caught up to him. Personally, after reading Sammy's au...

Re: Wikileaks posted that Steve Jobs actually Died of HIV

Several of the performers were shown which had been on several talk shows doing different roles. True, and I'd like to add to that: If it's ...
