Adam Jones
« on: December 10, 2004, 09:56:21 PM »
I don't know if this has been addressed yet, but did you guys realize that Adam Jones is an official member of the Melvins? I was sitting here listening to 'Lateralus' and enjoying a Miller High Life and it hit me like a brick in the head, Adam has played on the last like, four albums (the Bootlicker, COD, HAT, POTRE) and maybe the Biafra thing, I don't know, but his presence is sounding more and more audible. The third track on POTRE is totally Adam Jones.
This is great because all those kids who listen to Tool and A Perfect Cirle are eventually going to connect the dots and find their way back to the Melvins, which is fucking awesome. They will be blown away when they hear the missing link between Black Flag and Tool.
I think the addition of Adam Jones on guitar has been crucial to the Melvins development / resurgence of late. Every band that has been around for 20+ years needs a little kick in the butt - a fresh take on things.
Adam is a talented musician and when Tool folds pretty soon - which I think they will, he will become even a larger force in the Melvins.

Thoughts? Discussion? Is this post too long winded? I'm drunk and have nothing better to do than to write on this forum.
Thanks

I said the same thing ages ago, Pigs reminds me of Tool,
Gonzo almost tore my goddam head off, but we get along now
its true though, even Bloated Pope is like a Tool song except no one

Yeah, check out the last three songs on Black Flag's 'My War'. The Melvins basically used those songs as the template for a lot of their sludgier, slowed down tracks. Coincidence? That record came out in 84,  around the time when the Melvins were starting up.

Yeah but the Melvins started out playing kinda faster...I'd say Generic Flipper as more of an influence when the Melvins started slowing down.
