ecmoRandomNumbers: Melisma kills songs. The Star-Spangled Banner is NOT 8,000 notes. If you were to transcribe a typical modern power-diva's rendition of our national anthem, it would read like a Rachmaninoff concerto.
SockMonkeyHolocaust: karmachameleon: Thank you for letting us all know that you don't know how to listen to music and that you have no idea what you're talking about. You think that you do, but you don't, not really. I appreciate the heads up!Are you his mom or a 14 year-old fangirl? Because that's the only reason why I'd imagine anyone would type those words in defense of a melted blob of wax hitting pitch-perfect covers of songs that sound vaguely familiar.Don't worry. One day you'll discover HIM and Pink and the Sex Pistols and suddenly puberty will make sense.log_jammin: You shut your whore mouth! that man risked his life as a tail gunner in a B-17 in WWII!!! He's a HERO!!!!If calling someone who fought alongside Wil Smiff against the alien invasion of Earth a "pussy" is anti-patriotic then let me say the people on the Lusitania deserved to die.
SockMonkeyHolocaust: I'd die of embarrassment if I let a soulless, watered-down Frank Sinatra whose albums are cookie-cutter crooner 101 dress me down like that.Seriously, watch anything of his on YouTube. It has all the soul and spontaneity of a Disney animatronic exhibit.
dickfreckle: While his dad was a...questionable...district attorney (New Orleans, for appx. 193 years) that old man could throw down a piano and vocal. He's just as interesting to watch as his son. The whole family can cook a stage. While the Connicks' styles aren't always my cup of my tea, there's no denying the craftsmanship.As for the Idol bit, if Connick Jr. ever deigned to offer me free artistic advice, I'd be thrilled. Would probably cry a little inside for how vicious it would be, but I'd be thankful for it nonetheless.
Waldo Pepper: Ai judges did a great job not picking decent male contestants for this years show. I've never seen such a obvious bias against one gender on AI before this year
atcomm1: If you can't may HCKj the song is true or YOURS, then you take his advice to heart. Or you fail./would love a chance to background with him, recorded or not//his "Danny Boy" and Christmas albums not my fave/// "She" kills it!!
The Great EZE: Cyno01: [i.imgur.com image 460x345]Love the advice, but Dave Grohl's (and Herry Connick Jr.'s) idealism is misplaced. Everything you need to know about these contestants' ambitions is right in the title of the show. They don't want to be musicians; they want to be idols. They want to be famous singers, not singers who happen to be famous. If you think about it from that perspective, shows like American Idol and The Voice are the paths of least resistance.I always cringe at promos for results shows when the voiceover guys ask "WHO DO YOU LOVE?" or "WHO DOES AMERICA LOVE?" It's a little heartbreaking thinking that these people are not only starved for love and validation but are confusing it with artistic success. I want my friends and family to "love" me. I want the people who sign my checks to respect my work. But that's the industry and that's what they signed up for.
EyeballKid: The Why Not Guy: I've never been a Dave Grohl fan but his recent work with Stevie Nicks kicks some butt.How many grandchildren do you have?

vudukungfu: Isn't this the douchetard that tried to sneak a gun on a plane in '92 and plea bargained away jail time while any of us would have been in GITMO?
