 :lol: :lol: :lol:

a badge of honor to be sure.

Also, being a Melvins fan in spite of Buzz? Come on.
I agree he can be a bit too stuck up, but he's still a huge inspiration.
If he wasn't who he is, Melvins wouldn't be Melvins, so that's a really silly thing to say.
One has to be stubborn to get to certain things in life.
I don't see anything wrong with aspiring to not to take shit from anyone, work hard, and learn on others' mistakes.

That's all true but it can get a bit much with Buzz sometimes. I understand that mindset of his is in large part due to the band's early days when they were rejected by their local scene and they especially Buzz developed a steely resolve in that they 'knew' they were right and everyone else (their scene) was wrong. There's also a lot of a punk DIY mentality in there too go out and do what you want fuck the establishment (major record labels etc).

That doggedness and single minded mentality permeates his interviews it's clearly a large part of what drives him and keeps him going but I do think his taking shots at other bands/artists over the years (speaking the truth as he would see it) has also hurt them and burnt a number of bridges. Not just Dave Grohl Buzz had a falling out with Patton at one point where they didn't speak for a few years despite being on his label then all the bass players they've gone through too.

It's the negativity and/or taking shots at other bands that I've never liked with his interviews. He's not as bad as he used to be with that stuff these days and that's probably age.
Good observations. He's definitely toned it down within the last ten years.


there is a bitterness that lingers I think from Dale and Buzz both.  they say "what can I do about negative reviews?  nothing! so fuck 'em!" (for example)  but then notice how quickly they both go on the defense when someone says their album sucks.   moreso with Dale it seems.  he seems a little edgy and almost confrontational about it.      look what happened here a few years ago.  we all almost got banned for having the nerve express an opinion that wasn't "EVERYTHING THEY DO IS GOLD!".     and whatever..  I get pissed off when someone critiques my hard work too.      they're just one of those bands.  either you get it or you don't.        they aren't doing anything that is exposing them to new audiences at this point so I'm not even sure why critique is relevant.  you and I will eat it up regardless.  in fact we'll probably be even more drawn to bad reviews because that kind of what MELVINS are about.

actually I can't take FULL credit.    a fella goes by the name GRIM REAPER is the true hero.  I'm just your average loser.

bottom line is I may have 2 and possibly up to 3 extra tickets.    should these tickets change hands the squaring up will be required to include grimmy baby.

you people should talk to me.     I could be your new best friend. 


Flutter... I'm looking at you here since it looks like D solved his problems.


oh and by the way... it's not JSBX from what I am to understand. it's just Jon Spencer solo.   FYI.

my wife's interest in this show just went up exponentially.
Your wife is a big fan of the Blues Explosion?? From what you've said in the past, i honestly wouldn't have guessed that.

yes she likes them.  I've taken her to see them a couple times.    she seems quite interested in JS himself.    geez I wonder why.

Michigan gets all the good shows!  :x

 hey just because opposite world is coming true is no reason to start making comments.

I haven't until now but I'd like to say it does not sound like something I would like.

I deeply apologize for that.
