Playing Madison Square Gardens (6/11)



  1. I like that era for rock music, but in a world of Spotify and YouTube...it's gotta be really good to stack up to the stuff that's stuck around for the last 20 years...
  2. Bon Jovi suck... I mean, seriously...
  3. Ironic that I find myself resurrecting 2 year old threads to talk about how social media has changed things but... I've been logged in for about 2 hours now, and i've hardly looked at Facebook in that time (I never did join Instagram or Twitter - I had enough negativity from YouTube that I didn't need to get involved in that stuff) And honestly, I've enjoyed what I've read on here more than what I see in the news feed on there. I think....message boards might be like vinyl, in that we initially replaced vinyl with CDs, because they were more efficient and convenient, but then with CDs being digital and convenient, we naturally progressed to digital downloads (which was a phase I abhorred personally), and then to streaming music....which is like digital downloads without having to pay for each album individually, and is the most convenient way of getting music now. However, it's too much - there is too much music to choose from, it's too easy to swap albums half way through, and most people don't even use Spotify to listen to full albums anymore, but they make shuffle playlists, or just listen to one or two tracks off an album before moving on Which is why, I feel, vinyl has made a huge comeback over the last 5-10 years. I think that people started to miss the feeling, the experience, of buying an album they can hold in their hands, and putting it on the platter, then having to flip the record half way through...when you listen to vinyl, you can't even skip tracks without standing up, so it makes the whole experience that much more kinetic and real I think that message boards will come back into fashion as we start to see social media become more and more generalised and streamlined - I'm already frustrated by Facebook's algorithms, deciding what they think I may or may not be interested in...and I'm definitely fed up of the huge contrast in opinions and types of people on these social media platforms I feel, and kinda hope, that the old fashioned form of internet communication will become more popular over time, to help fill the void that Facebook has left....the same way vinyl came back when streaming services, albeit the most efficient way of listening to music, replaced the experience of listening to an album I think people are going to start to miss the focus that boards like this have I mean....I know that's why I'm here right now...but maybe that's just me
  4. Take it from me... None of this will matter in another decade; you'll kinda just hit a point where you realise you have better things to worry about than the opinions of (literally) only a handful of people. It's all too easy to take things personally as a kid, but as you grow up you'll gain a new perspective, and appreciation, for just how big the world is. Ignore the negativity and surround yourself with positive people, and you'll have more positive feelings yourself
  5. Or Eaglesfan3000 (Eric I think?), there was a nice little group of musos on here back in the day...
  6. It's nice to see that as small as the group seems to have become, it is all the familiar faces...and Darkstone, who seems like an awesome guy anyway :p I've been out of the loop in terms of Rock music for a while now...is there any chance the the drop in HH traffic has any correlation to rock musics relevance in 2019? Or is the rock scene alive and well, and I've just not been in the right groups on FB to see it? Have been genuinely worried about this over the last decade...I feel like guitar and live music in general is fading away into obscurity...but I hope to be proven wrong Sad to see the pro forum is s bit dead these days, does Thomas/Coastline still post?
  7. I feel the same tbh! A few years ago FB was the place to talk about not just music, but everything I enjoyed...now there's few discussions on there about Star Wars, Doctor Who, comics, films etc that don't just turn into pointless arguments...it's like the worst flamefests we had on here but everywhere you look....I think the fact that literally everyone is on there only fuels the fire tbh It's made me appreciate that with these forums we're all like minded and have something in common at the end of the day....we had our rough patches in the past; I wasn't the only member who had issues with other members, but we were one community at the end of the day It's my hope that forums such as this one start to make a comeback...more and more people are becoming frustrated with FB, and Zuckershmucks double speak isn't putting anyones mind at ease either :p We do have closed groups on there to keep the community spirit alive, but I find people are more easily riled up anywhere on FB, probably due in part to whatever non-group post they just saw 5 mins prior...HH feels like a bit of a haven nowadays!
  8. Oh it was Jacob. M I was thinking of! Good to see he's still alive and well, last login was a few weeks ago Still sad to hear about Staryder though, I remember him being very passionate about the hobby A few old regulars on that thread I'd forgotten about: Evil Rick, Swazi, 66 Mustang, cdjunky, T-Bone...
  9. I would look it up, but in my experience...the less time spent on Facebook, the better...way too much crossover on there, most people don't know whether I'm coming or going :p
  10. Oh that's terrible! I liked him, he was one of the younger members if i remember right, we got along well...he struck me as the kinda guy who wouldn't hurt a fly...very sad to hear of his passing makes me all that more grateful for those who are still with us, I'm glad you guys are still around Haha, I think I used to get Washington state and D.C. confused just as often as a kid, apologies! I do remember you, I'm sure I'd remember more if I could place your profile pic back in the day :p I had forgotten about HSF till you mentioned him just now tbh, is he still around? What about OP Leykis101?
  11. Martinsane! Good to see you're still around man! I remember you, weren't you mates with Sean? I seem to remember you were the correctional officer on the east coast? May be getting confused though Yeah I've noticed most forums have died to be honest, I switched to Facebook myself because I had all my college friends on there but....I think I came back here cause Facebook is getting reallllly nasty these days, and as you can imagine; probably not the best atmosphere for someone like me :p one thing I'll say for forums is they did have a real community feel to them, even when we were arguing....FB tends to be a load of strangers blowing off steam in each other's faces between breaks! At least we had some form of respect around these parts! What about GlamJunkie? Australia's biggest Bon Jovi fan IIRC, he was always active, but his profile has the same pic it had a decade ago... And who was the guy from Tulsa who was mad about Pontiac? I remember getting along with him quite well funnily enough, but can't for the life of me remember who it was! Maybe we'll see more of us come back as Facebook becomes more and more toxic...I kinda miss the quaint old message board format
  12. And it's never too late to learn man I missed the emojis on this board...
  13. Yeah....it's a female :p Cheers man! I love Danger Danger, but I've always had a soft spot for that Bang Bang as well :p just the music on the original I thought was kinda boring, so I just did that version for my own benefit tbh...I think I'm the person who streams it more than anyone else haha Ah to be fair im feeling a lot more confidant these days! Was sitting there working out all these different TV and film themes earlier, planning a rock medley in the near future...older members will remember the Star Wars travesty, but this one will be better :p
  14. And I really need to change my username again - no word of a lie, I had to stop using this as a stage name when a porn star with the same named turned up overnight, sometime in 2012...it's been sullied ever since...
