Take that paper bag over your head and multiply it by 18,000. If they incorporated jazz into the next CD I would personally find them and murder each existing member of the band.

 

Seriously, why are they at a jazz festival?

Why are the majority of those acts at a JAZZ festival?

My guess would be that, like Jazz, all of those other artist always have been, are and always will be terrible (okay, I have to admit I don't mind some of these songs I'm hearing off that new Kings of Leon disc... but as for the rest of them...) but at least Bon Jovi were once an excellent band by most standards, and many would agree they are still pretty decent.

Sure the BJ boys had some hits back in the day but a number of the acts on this bill are far superior, albeit from way different genre's than BJ.

 

However: They still are not JAZZ! And don't give me this: "It's in New Orleans so that's why its called a jazz festival." I don't get it? It's like all you can eat ribs at a Vegan joint. Or like going to McDonalds for an eye exam!?!?!?!?!?! Or Slayer and Stryper on the same bill! Just makes ZERO sense when you walk it through.

Hell, I'd pay to see that just for the rumble...

 

Can you imagine the finale with both bands performing together on stage?

 

"And I love you can't you see... That I can say I love you honestly... Bleeding its horror... Creating my structure... Now I shall reign in blood!... You, you make my life complete..."

Well, it is called the "Jazz & Heritage Festival" ... Bon Jovi obviously aren't jazz, so maybe they're considered "Heritage?" :blink:

Far as I'm concerned you can wipe them out right now.....I believe it's impossible for these morons to put out a another decent release so put them out of their misery....

I seem to remember there was some trouble between Glen Benton of Deicide and Stryper back in the day, and Glen ended up looking like more of a cock than he usually does!

 

Oh, and as for Slayer and Stryper on the same bill?

I wonder if by "reaching out" to Slayer fans, the guys in Stryper were planning to give the crowd a sermon on the wrongs of their non-believing ways? I seriously wonder what their "plan" was...

Actually, I love jazz and was playing jazz long before I got into hard rock.........And I know several extremely talented jazz musicians who play professionally. That said, WTF does Bon Jovi bring to a jazz festival? He's put out a few bluesy rockers, such as the opener on "Destination Anywhere," but I don't see a correlation with jazz :screwy: .

Ummmmm......On closer inspection of the listed performers, there really are some dreadful acts lined up here (exceptions: EWF, Joe Cocker [+/-], Wynton Marsalis, Kings Of Leon). Of course, one can find authentic jazz/blues performances in Nawlins practically every night of the year--> oh, how I've had many wonderful nights of "debauchery" in the Jazz/Blues bars & clubs of ye olde French Quarter (pre-Katrina). Even had a semi-drunken philosophical discussion with an "escort," who claimed to be a graduate of BYU (a strict religious univ. in Utah, for those who don't know), one night outside the House Of Blues :lol::lol: --> bought her a couple of streetside drinks, but was sensible enough to leave her at the door.............Ah, N.O. = GOOD TIMES :chug: .
