    I think I might be a bit obsessed with Jack White. He keeps showing up in my dreams.

    Hahaha. I get why people are into Jack White... just some of the statements his fans make are a bit much.

    The Elvis/Paul McCartney comparison was my favorite.

    Yeah Jack is overrated . Saw him for the first time at osl and am still in shock over the mediocrity. Reminded me of seeing Flylo for the first time in that sense.

    Yeah, after seeing him at OSL the "See him live" statement is less powerful. Get him to do a full guitar set again and I'd recommend him to anyone. The piano isn't his strongest instrument, even if it's fun to see him play it.

    Never seen the White Stripes, seen The Dead Weather and Raccoon with tears. So I agree with not seeing the hype, perhaps Meg was really the foundation of the stripes while Jack was the narcissistic coke head who drove the band off the cliff

    Re: The Faint, I really liked them in high school, but even then they weren't very good live. I hope they've gotten more entertaining.

    Aww, I hate to see people disappointed. I would jump at the chance to see him again. I just hope he could add a date here in AZ or a weekend LA date because I am out of vacation time.

    I enjoyed him at OSL, but it was a disappointment compared to the White Stripes shows I saw. Not really fair to compare the two though, such different live experiences.

    Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue may be a good place to start as this album is still very much Whitesnake.

    Then I would try Sex & Religion with Devin Townsend on vocals and Terry Bozzio on drums. Again, this is much more than just a Steve Vai solo album so you get his guitar work but also Devin's intense vocals, Bozzio's inventive drum work, etc. Damn I love how Devin Townsend sings on this album.

    I don't even know what to say about the solo albums and other supergroups.


    Edit: it is possible I misread that

    I saw the faint in 2009 and left early.

    I wish I could comment on Jack White vs White Stripes, but I was too out of my mind during jack to even notice and could barely hear from the hill, anyway.

    I really like the White Stripes a lot, but I found the Raconteurs so tedious I haven't made any further efforts.

    I had absolutely no idea that Devin Townsend got his start performing with Steve Vai. Crazy.

    Honestly I find you a nice person, but I feel you post nothing but filler. Do you have any opinions? The avatar also makes me feel dumb.Change the av and put something controversial in your posts. Its just boring. I think your a kind person. just not adding much for someone who goes to so many shows.

    sorry if I made you feel bad.

    168 posts. 112 of them about Outside Lands. 38 about Treasure Island. 0 of them worth reading. And a douchebag.

    Are you under the impression that you're not a nauseatingly banal piece of shit yourself?

    I'm not defending anyone, dipshit. I'm asking for your subjective opinion on what boardies have avatars that make you feel smart. You're also welcome to list any and all emotions that other board avatars give you.
