    If I ever here Don't Bring Me Down by ELO again. I'm liable to blow my brains out.

    You’re on time out!

    I didn't say I hate all ELO

    Edit- Deleted-yeah this sucks too.

    Journey was better before Steve Perry joined up and I'd rather not listen to Triumph.

    Sorry about the down vote, nothing personal. But.. Nickelback?

    Pitbull writes some catchy ass shit. Your rythem and soul is broken if you don't feel like moving to his beats

    Ed Sheeran's Blow is the best rock song written in years.

    When the Guns N Roses pinball machine came out in 1994, they were pretty much over by then.

    When the Metallica pinball machine came out in 2013, they were way over by then.

    When I worked at Ernie Ball back in the day and they bought MusicMan, and we were trying to make our own electric guitars from scratch, Steve Morse was one of the first "names" to come in and work with Dudley (our designer) to make a signature model. There was only a few of us in the shop in those days, and we ALL called him Whiner Baby. All he did was complain, complain, complain! He claimed he could the tell a 5 ohms diff in a resistor in his special circuit. LOL. He claimed all kinds of voodoo. He's a killer player, but wah wah wah.

    Once, I was pressing frets into fingerboards; we used to super glue them in for good measure. My spot was right next to the set up room where they tested various configurations and plugged guitars into amps to hear them and shit. Morse comes wandering through the shop with Sterling Ball (Ernie's son) noodling on the latest setup, on his way to show off his new tone to Dudley. He sees me using superglue, and says that the little plastic knob on the pickup switch keeps coming off, and could I squeeze a little in the slot so it'll stay? I don't remind him that now he won't be able to take the switch out of the pickguard, and I obligingly squeeze a drop in for him. He wanders into the set-up room, plugs in, and says loudly to Sterling Ball and Dudley and everyone else in range, "Check out when I switch pickups now!" and tries to move the switch. But the superglue was still runny when he slapped the knob back on, and it ran down into the switch and glued it tight. He and Sterling come screaming in my face about how I fucked up Steve Morse's guitar, and what the fuck was I thinking when I actually did what he asked me to.

    Sterling tried to woo EVH, and they both came into the shop all coked up and made us explain stupid stuff to them. That evening Eddie came to our company softball game and dragged Sterling off for more coke in the middle of the second inning. Eddie never ended up signing with us.

    Does anyone really want to go to church? I do feel better after leaving but it is because I don’t have to go back for awhile.

    You sound like a ball of laughs.

    The guy is trying to make his signature model so you think he's a whiner for asking you to do it the way he wants it?

    That would be the point of a signature model.

    #526 2 days ago

    That’s hilarious. Went on a road trip in high school, the C+C music factory was the only cd the kid had and it was his car. Still hate that guy.. Helmet kicked ass.

    Thankfully I won’t be going on any road trips with some of these people up in here- there is unpopular and then there is just saying obscure bands to appear relevant.
    I never knew opinion was unpopular, but U2 rules!! Name another band that has had more hits over a career that lasted more then 10 years? 20? U2 live at Slane castle- epic.

    Here’s another that never got the love

    Very cool story, did you work with any other noteworthy players? (Steve Vai, Billy Duffy, Steve Lukather, and Paul Gilbert were all big Ernie Ball endorsers during that time, ever interact with any of those guys?)

    Too bad Steve Morse came across that way, but I imagine it was a bit more than him simply being difficult. I think in general, high-achieving individuals often tend to be extremely driven, perfectionistic, and sometimes even a bit rigid, and even reputed nice guys like Morse are susceptible! I imagine he is the type of guy who is strictly focused and disciplined when “on”, and you interacted with him in this context, unfortunately taking a bit of OCD-induced flak!

    EVH story is sad. The guy had unreal innate talent (no formal musical knowledge, if you believe him), but unfortunately never could consistently moderate the excesses and it seems as if (despite the great run VH had) there were a tragic number of missed opportunities as a result; your deal being just one of (I suspect) scores of others.

    Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan are horrible singers. Great songwriters but their voices make my blood boil.

    Kinda gotta disagree. At least with Willie.

    #531 2 days ago
    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    This is absolutely true. Brian Wilson is a genius, and that was him at the peak of his powers. That song DID influence the Beatles, and specifically Paul McCartney.
    Difference is...the Beatles went on to influence EVERYBODY ELSE.
    Boom! Mic Drop.

    And Brian Wilson's "genius" pretty much died after that. I saw the guy twice live, and love everything he and his brothers accomplished (Carl WAS the Beach Boys), but their career was much shorter than people remember from a creativity POV. Mac continues to put out great shit.

    #532 2 days ago

    This is bound to be unpopular. I know they are revered. I never cared for the Ramones. All their songs mostly sound the same and I just couldn't ever get into their sound. I think they had one song that I sorta kinda liked.

    #533 2 days ago

    This thread changed about a month ago from “unpopular music opinions” to “music opinions.”

    And the ramones are the greatest American band.

    Shame on you breath!

    Some just don't really care for bands that keep on churning out money making hits year after year. I pretty much gave up on U2 after the October album failed to meet the high standards delivered with their debut LP.

    #537 2 days ago

    I kinda like the “one hit wonders”. At least they all share one thing. A song that made it.

    This thread is a fun place to leave those opinions that might otherwise get you moderated and ejected in threads about the latest outdated and irrelevant band to get a new pinball machine. This place is loaded with those with plenty more to come.

    Bands I don't listen to anymore and sure as hell don't want to own or play a new pinball game themed after them-

    All of them!

    Wow. We haven’t heard you say this before.

    The Doors - love Manzarek's keyboards and Kreiger's guitar, especially on Light My Fire, but can't stand Morrison, especially towards the end. Musically, their tones and style were great. But lyrically, a snooze fest.

    Quoted from Chisox:

    The greatest band to ever come out of Ireland was not U2 (and I’m not a hater)....it was Thin Lizzy.

    Maybe, but my vote goes to Rory Gallagher or to his first band, Taste.

    Quoted from Oscope:

    Most people consider Peter Frampton a one hit wonder or flash in the pan for his ‘76 Live album that every high schooler played endlessly
    I thought the same until I got the opportunity to see him in concert the past couple of years and he was totally amazing!
    He is a true broad musical artist and can play it all - I especially enjoyed his Blues playing which is absolutely outstanding
    He has mastered his craft like very few ever have and I would put his guitar skills up against any of the more popular top 10 guitarist
    The shame is that Frampton now has a progressive disease that affects his hands and he is losing the ability to play guitar. What a tragedy...
    If you get the chance give some of his other music a listen as you are in for a real treat

    Frampton's work with Humble Pie was way better than most any of his radio friendly solo crap.

    Duran Duran is the f'ing bomb. Love their material...Taylor's early bass riffs are complex and busier than shit, and Rhodes is amazing. While their first few albums are the best, later material like Thank You and the Wedding Album are spectacular.

    "Her name is Rio and she dances on the sand." Sure, best music video of it's time. Those boys were the hottest thing since The Bay City Rollers.

    And Jethro Tull was the best choice for the Grammy hard rock winner in 1989.
