I love "Cult Of Personality" but no, we don't. We just need better rock music. The first thing that needs to be done is getting rid of that "emo" shit.

Chuck Berry, Jimi, Fats, Little Richard set the bar pretty high.

It was the infusion of "black" music that really made great American rock and roll, in my opinion. I would hate to go back to having "black" and "white" music again. But I also don't think we need people of any particular color in any particular type of music.

Agreed...really set the tone.

but If your ever in Wentzville MO stay away from an Old black man driving a Silver Avalon.... Chuck Berry should have his license revoked.

I loved them until I realized Erkel plays drums for them.

Although you're a cock, I agree with you. Now go suck off your Elway doll.

That was pretty cool, MOHB. I'm not a big punk fan, but those guys were good.

I was just thinking how i wish more kids would pick up the guitar no matter what race. Limiting yourself to just hip hop or any genre is wrong. who knows what kind of talent you could have and you never know it because all you have is hip hop

That can't happen until you remove said doll from your ass and wash it off. Use soap.

Not too bad for a tribute band, but they're missing one critical element - where's the Pirates hat?

That's a lame ass excuse, IMO. Every note has already been played.

I think it has to do more with the current generations segregating themselves from rock and roll.

Living Colour hit MTV at the time I was huge on Led Zeppelin. It was so refreshing to hear an infectious guitar riff with a fatback drum beat in the late 80s. LC had some serious choppage!

That shit was ill!

Did they ever have any songs besides "Cult of Personality" make it big? I remember hearing one other song on the radio, and I don't remember the name of it, but it didn't really make much of an impact the way CoP did. After that, they kind of fell off the radar, which kind of sucked, because they had the potential to be an awesome band.

Reids solo on CoP is an all-timer, he's just ripping it.

You probably heard 'Glamour Boys'. It wasn't that good. More recently they had a cover of AC/DC's 'Back in Black' which got some airplay.
