“Volcano” by Damien Rice

September 15, 2008

I’m a big fan….I’m hoping he’ll be releasing a new album soon. This song, “Volcano” is from his album 0. Recorded live at Abbey Road Studios. Oh, in the interest of full-disclosure, I have a voice-crush on the woman singing with him, Lisa Hannigan.

Karma’s a Canadien-Noel Gallagher of Oasis Knocked Off His Feet at Toronto Concert

September 9, 2008

Liam Gallagher gets jacked from behind by a fan during the band’s performance at Toronto’s Virgin Music Festival. I’m not a fan of the Gallagher brothers and they’re big mouths, but this was out of line. This could’ve turned out much worse.

Kevin Pollack impersonating the entire Star Trek crew

September 6, 2008

Kevin Pollack imagines Star Trek if everyone but William Schatner was replaced by, at the time, other actors. Some of the references might be a bit dated but still pretty good overall.

Some nice concert footage from Jane’s Addiction.

R&B duo K-Ci and JoJo reunite and then 1/2 of them promptly passes out on stage. *cough* crackhead *cough*

August 25, 2008

This is just 1 small example of why I love the internet. Thanks to a mobile camera phone and Youtube, you get to watch an example of an onstage meltdown all the way over in Australia.

A Perez Hilton sent this description to Perez’s site:

So last night some friends and I went to see a Jodeci “reunion tour” at the Enmore theater in Sydney. Mate, the whole thing was a disaster. First, one of the guys (Devante I think) didn’t even show up, so it became a K-ci and JoJo concert. JoJo came on stage and right away you could tell he was messed right up- he kept forgetting the words to songs and just was a general weirdo. But then, after about 40 minutes into the “show” he decided to sit right down on the floor. His brother, the other crackhead K-ci was trying his best to carry the show on his own. By far, the best part of the evening was when JoJo walked off stage for about 5 minutes, then came back out to sing “All My Life”- and PASSED OUT mid song. His brother told the audience that they were tired after their 24-hour flight and that JoJo had gotten dizzy.

Watch Jo Jo come out around the 0:55 second mark, followed closely by a bodyguard. It’s all downhill from there. I’m not sure what’s funnier, the guy passing out or K-Ci saying “Give it up for Jo Jo” while the guy is out cold on the stage.  Priceless.

How Britney Spears actually sounds when she sings.

August 23, 2008

Her microphone isolated.  This isn’t what the audience hears as the pre-recorded track is broadcast to the audience.  Britney’s Lip-synching is actually to the audience’s benefit.

God of all bass-players Victor Wooten plays “Amazing Grace” using harmonics

Kick arse bass playing, sucks arse dancing.

Tim McGraw boots redneck, sorry, fan, from his concert for harassing a woman. Axl Rose laughs at how Tim handles a bad fan.

June 27, 2008

A statement issued by representatives from Tim McGraw’s management:

“While Tim was performing at the White River Amphitheater in Auburn, Washington last night, he watched a man rush to the front of the stage. This overly aggressive fan attacked a female fan and Tim witnessed this incident. Tim called for security, but when they could not respond quick enough Tim and several crew members removed the fan from the audience where he was then turned over to the local authorities.”

That dude is no small emo boy, either, quite a sizable redneck. Tim handled it rather well, all things considered.

Now, here’s how you handle an unruly fan, a classic demonstration by Axl Rose, lead singer of Guns’N Roses. During a show in St. Louis in 1991, Rose became irate because a fan in the crowd was taking his picture. Rose asked security to remove the fan and or camera, and when they didn’t move quick enough, he jumped into the crowd to handle the situation. You can see a few blows exchanged, and then the situation just goes haywire.
