Re: Proof that the Music scene in the USA sucks


The Darkness is just a wannabee 80's hair band.

I'm quite familiar with them as Mrs. DSR was/is a big 80's hair band fan.

Trouble is that you might actually be as dumb as your posting suggests emoticon

Because you're thick, that's why. emoticon

We're pretty sure he is Doogie....either that or the bloke on the radio that mentioned this place and mispronounced a certain adminsitrator's name is a really good impressionist. emoticon

He got it right, the second time around, mind!emoticon

Well in that case I don´t know who that Doogie White bloke is, whom I wrote e-mails and that´s why he pops in here. These forum celebs are really confusing me. Always those Doogie Whites, Rob Fodders, Mickey Aireys, Jon Lords... emoticon

Re: Proof that the Music scene in the USA sucks


This is a statement I need absolutely no proof of to conclude,living here and putting up with Britney Spears speaks for itself,this lends heavily to why I'm so glad Purple are still alive and kicking in the rest of the world,one way or another,I'll take it till they call it a day.

And Heep have been described as a poor man's Purple.

So if that's the case, only tramps listen to the Darkness! emoticon

Seriously though, they've done a couple of catchy tunes, but its nothing exceptional. It stands out in the charts because there is nothing quite like it at the moment. But most fans of rock music know that there was/is a hell of a lot better rock out there.

They still wouldn't have got a record deal if they were around in 1974! emoticon



I saw Uriah Heep first time around and at that time they were ( or at least seemed ! ) pretty good, some great songs like Gypsy what that great organ riff.

THe only good thing the Darkness might have done ( and I stress might ) is to have helped to adjust the focus from disco crap and indie rubbish towards something more rock orientated, or at leasts something that vaguely musical. Equally they might well have scared off the audiences as well! At least they attempt guitar solos een if they're not very good. All that indie rubbish is just one load of chords after another, complete drivel most of it. Give your average 17 / 18 year old a guitar these days and you get an angry twat who beats the living daylights out of his guitar, not becuase he's really angry, but because of his angst at his own total inability to play it properly! WHy is it indie bands can't play guitar solos ? I blame U2 and that non-entity of a so called guitarist "the Edge", someone shoul have taken him to a cliff at birth and shoved him over "the edge" !



Good point!
P.S. Uriah Heep were (and sometimes still are) brilliant!
