i remember reading an interview with NG where he referred to mick jagger as a "sweaty mushroom" and said, "i'll slit his throat with me credit card." funny stuff.

2. Anton Newcombe on Eric Clapton
"People talk about Eric Clapton. What has he ever done except throw his baby off a farkin' ledge and write a song about it?"


That's.. that's just.. wow, man. Wow...

Nick Cave's on the RHCP is still my favorite.

And David Lee Roth's on Elvis Costello is just plain fun (and, well, just typical David Lee Roth)

"Music journalists like Elvis Costello because music journalists look like Elvis Costello."

Old blog is old.

http://www.fark.com/comments/6489392/

Looks like it was updated on Jan 1, 2012, so a couple months after the last thread...

Technically then, not a repeat, though many of the quotes are

//can't find a source on the Mark Everett one
//did find him saying he didn't like guns "because one killed John Lennon"
 
2013-06-19 06:18:06 PM
29. Christina Aguilera on Lady Gaga
"I'm not quite sure who this person is, to be honest. I don't know if it is a man or a woman."


If that's one of the "best" I don't think I'm going to bother with the rest of the list.

does that mean he likes John Lennon?  His "insult" didn't make much sense.

I like E and all that the Eels put out.

Noel Galagher is pretty good coming up with original put-downs.  It's a shame he isn't as talented when it comes to music.

"They're really talentless people, and they write crap music, and they're the most popular rock band on the earth right now. I can't believe it."


I know, it sucks it's one of those bands who can actually play instruments. Maybe you should kill yourself over it.

The best story I've ever heard is the RHCP/Faith No More "feud."  Apparently, Anthony Kiedis thought Mike Patton ripped off 'his' style (despite the fact that everyone from the bay area looked like that back then), and harbored a grudge for years.  Later, after FNM broke up, and Patton was touring with Mr. Bungle, Kiedis had them kicked off part of a tour because of it.  It was the first Patton had ever heard of their "feud."

20. Richey Edwards on The Levellers
"You could go to any Levellers concert and stand in the middle and shout, 'Jeremy!', and 75% of the audience would turn round."


He stole my line. Walk into a strip club and say 'Hey, coach!' ...

huh, I had never heard that.  Patton actually has talent and is creative.  Kedis is still beating the same dead horse he rode in on.

I can see his point.  RHCP hadn't really broken through big, and then FNM comes out with "Epic" and it is a smash and it is metal/funk.  Kiedis probably has some sour grapes at the time.  To top it off, you have a singer who is mimicking Kiedis's stage act to a certain degree (we're not talking David Lee Roth's complete theft of Jim Dandy, but still enough for people to point it out.)

I figure Kiedis probably thought he told Patton to fark off, but he was so high on smack that he only imagined doing it.

24. Courtney Love on Dave Grohl
"As for that drummer, well, he'shiat on me so many times. He's just a very very conflicted guy about me, which is why he continually writes songs about me to hear he 'hates' me more than 'anyone else.' Kurt loathed HIM more than anyone else (except a journalist) ... He's just sub-mediocre kind of [guy] who does this 'nice guy' nonsense."

23. Dave Grohl on Courtney Love
"She's an ugly farking biatch."

22. Kathleen Hanna on Courtney Love
"Where's the baby? In the closet with an IV?"



Honestly, who do you believe here?

My favorite:


30. Wayne Coyne on Arcade Fire
"I get really tired of their pompousness [sic]... We've played some shows with them and they really treat people like shiat. People treat Arcade Fire like they're the greatest thing ever and they get away with it... They have good tunes, but they're pricks, so fark 'em."


I know precious little about Arcade Fire other than getting kicked out of their backstage area a couple of years ago at Outside Lands (I'm sure I deserved it), but when you get a gem like this out of Wayne freakin' Coyne, you must be some kind of asshole.  Love or hate the Flaming Lips, but he's one of the all-around nice guys out there, and the only other artist I know that pissed him off to no end was Beck, and that's because Beck acted like a pissy little crybaby towards Flaming Lips on their tour despite it being Beck that asked them to open for him AND to be his backup band.  Of course, Wayne and company skewered the shiat out of him on the song "Free Radicals."  Yay Scientologist douchery!

My thoughts exactly.  I forgot what that song was about until I read this. I was also surprised that Dave Grohl hit on Courtney Love and was hated by Cobain. He didn't deny it in his short retort...  however it was an effective truth.

Because Dave Grohl can't play instruments right?  Slash is a talented guitarist, but the rest are replaceable, and were.  Can Slash play drums or sing?  You music sucks thread .
