i totally get why there's a hall of fame. it's just a human thing to do. there's a hall of fame for everything. toys. mining. pinball. even kites! the weird thing to me is how worked up people get over it.

I don’t know why I care, or even sure I really do. For a band like Soundgarden, I think they deserve to be recognized for what they created and the meaning they had to a particular time and place. Am I heartbroken? No. I am not in the band or anything. I don’t need my aged bands to get validation from some body of experts, but somehow I think it nice if they were.

yeah, i mean of course SG belongs there. I think they will enter in the future...but there are so many bands that were shut, its no surprise...NIN was elegible in 2016 and they are entering this year...Motorhead is not there....fuck, Janes Addiction was nominated a few year ago and never again...

In other news, CNN headline says Bon Jovi is releasing a new album. I dared not click on the link for fear of a virus...not a computer virus - I was afraid of throwing up.

I have friends that like them...I am not a Bon Jovist - but they are one of maybe 5 or 6 rock bands that I actively despise.

I'm not ride or die for Bon Jovi. But he's got a run of records that I adore and listen to fondly. Kevin Davis knows what I'm talking about.

Oh, they are apparently touring with Bryan Adams. Can the world handle Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and It’s My Life on the same night!?

They probably feel like they met their dour '90's alt-rock quota for the year with NIN.

Bon Jovi's "Cross Road" is my childhood in a time capsule. I can't help loving it.

I always liked Lay Your Hands on Me and Runaway. But when they released Bad Medicine, that song made me think they were going full on hair metal. Never really kept up with them after the 80's, though

This is awful news, Juan Alderete (Racer X, Mars Volta, lately Marilyn Manson) is in a coma following a bike accident.

I've been watching his gear demo videos for years.

https://www.facebook.com/JuanAldereteBa ... tn__=EHH-R

Quote:
Hi everyone - this is Anne, Juan's wife. While I generally hesitate to share personal details on social media, it felt right to include all of you who've supported Juan over the years as friends, fans, fellow music (and food, cat, bike, Japan) lovers and musicians.

Juan was in a solo (no cars, other people) and very serious bicycle accident on 1/13/20 not far from our home. He - as always - was wearing a helmet and protective clothing but sustained serious head trauma in the form of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI); his form of TBI is Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI) and as of today, he remains in a coma.

The only prognosis is to wait and see, as the brain is a complicated organ and the outcomes for DAI patients has a range as wide as the sea. While frustrating, it also allows for a world of positive outcomes so we can only hope for the best.
We know you have questions, concerns, thoughts to share, so please feel free to leave them in the comments (not DM please, sorry) here. We're also very eager to hear from neurologists, medical professionals with experience in DAI and TBI, first-person accounts of similar trauma and outcomes - essentially any useful, factual and accurate resources that relate to Juan's injury. If you have any of these, please DM me (Anne) @tunatoast.

We will post updates here from time to time. Thank you all and please keep Juan in your thoughts. - xo, Anne

My wife's a huge Bon Jovi fan.

I've often thought about adapting the songs on New Jersey into a film script.

Something interesting for those involved in engineering/production/etc.: https://qz.com/1788828/how-will-midi-2-0-change-music/

MIDI 2.0 has just come out, the first major update to the system and it apparently reduces lag time between interface and increases resolution for sound quantization allowing for a better interface between MIDI devices and stringed instruments, as well as opening up the system to different tuning and tonal systems such as those used in Eastern music.

Adam Schlesinger Of Fountains Of Wayne In Coma, On Ventilator Because Of Coronavirus

Adam Schlesinger, an Emmy and Grammy winner and Oscar nominee, as well as a leader of the pop band Fountains of Wayne, is reportedly in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator after contracting the coronavirus.

The 52-year-old pop savant has three Emmys and a Grammy in his collection, and an Oscar nomination for “That Thing That You Do,” the title track to the 1996 Tom Hanks-directed film. He has three Emmys and a Grammy for his work as a producer, engineer and songwriter.

In addition to film, his resume includes TV (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Sesame Street), theater (Cry-Baby: The Musical) and his work with Fountains of Wayne, whose hit Stacey’s Mom was No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2003.

“Sad news friends,” reads a post from an Ivy fan account, which said Schlesinger was on a ventilator for two weeks and is now in a medically-induced coma. “We send our prayers to him, his family and doctors,” the post said.

Very sad, doesn't sound great for the guy.

I always liked the singles from that first Fountains of Wayne record a lot, perfect 90s fuzz-pop:
