" Mayhem: Varg Vikernes vs. Euronymous"

I'm pretty sure I speak for most people when I say WHO?

I'm guessing that the whole article was a ruse so that I might look up any of that crap.

This feels strangely like a repeat...

first "top ten" list to have an indisputable number 1.

Axl vs GnR/Slash is the number one feud that doesn't involve murder, imho

Well Oasis murdered music on a regular basis, does that count?

I think I read about #1 on Fark. So while it may not be the most famous feud, it made it to here.

/it's not news, it's Fark.com

Robbie Robertson takes all the credit for that feud.

Who's Levon Helm?

Who insulted who's 'Murse and started that little dust up? The whining was probably so extreme that only
they and dogs could hear the argument...Not to mention, eye liner EVERYWHERE..

Geoff Tate and Queensryche.

Tarja getting suddenly booted from Nightwish was kinda a big deal.
 
2013-08-01 04:03:45 AM
No David Lee Roth vs. Edward and Alex Van Halen?
 
2013-08-01 04:08:45 AM
My opinions on the list, not that anyone cares, but I'm unable to sleep tonight:

10: The Rolling Stones: Anyone that's taken a vacation w/ a good friend will tell you that arguments happen. You need some time apart. Over 50 years of that, shiat is bound to hit the fan. They were just put on the list because of their posterity.

9. Simon and Garfunkel: They belong on the list. But I think their feud is nice because otherwise we never would have seen Paul Simon play basketball against Connie Hawkins w/ Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard playing in the background. (Although Garfunkel reluctantly joined him on TV the night it was broadcast.)

8. The Everly Brothers: Nothing wrong with that, should be on the list.

7. Pink Floyd: OK, but Gilmour shouldn't count because he was just a replacement for the real soul of the band. Who cares what he thinks? After Syd left it became Roger Waters' band. There's nobody alive that could convince me that The Piper at the Gates of Dawn wasn't their best album.

6. The Beatles: Just on the list because they're The Beatles. Although I'm surprised Yoko wasn't mentioned.

5. Guns N' Roses: Who the fark cares? Sure Axl is a douchbag, but so is Slash. At least Axl did his own thing (I can't believe I'm defending him.) Unlike Slash, who stole his image from a much more talented guitar player. (See Marc Bolan on the Slider album cover.)

4. The Kinks: Belong on the list, but their strife is what made them great.

3. The Beach Boys: Again, fine. Pet Sounds, was an awesome album, but they let John Stamos play with them tour with them, so they can go to hell.

2. Oasis: Who the fark cares? I'll admit my ignorance about this band because they were so over-hyped and sucked so hard.

1. Mayhem: Another thing I cannot argue with on this list. A perfect choice for #1.

I'd be a little more polite, but I certainly did a double take.

Staffa Kar Therma: No David Lee Roth vs. Edward and Alex Van Halen?


I came back to say that after I read the article. Also Sammy Hagar vs the Van Halen brothers, and Michael Anthony too.

Seriously? That stuff happened like twenty years ago. I'm surprised you haven't heard of it.

Yep.
Go here:  http://88fm.iba.org.il/

It's in Hebrew, but if you go to left you'll see: 88fm
They do a pretty good eclectic rock playlist during the day Israel time.
The last three songs were Credence, some psychedelic instrumental and now some 80s flavoured cover of Baby You can drive my Car
Like I said, eclectic.
Much better than the mainstream pop station which has the same ten songs on hourly rotation.

/If you're feeling adventurous find the link that looks like this: רשת ג
//That's a station that broadcasts Israeli music only.

George Harrison married a pretty young thing.  Clapton fell for her, and wrote the song 'Layla' to woo her.(even though that wasn't her name)  It worked; she dumped Harrison and married Clapton, at least for a few years or so.

(I LOVE Spineshank's cover)

As the Weeners in TFA said: No Credence?  Kept John out of the studio for 10 years and John didn't attend Tom's funeral.

Not really. The list seems to be about feuds between people who were in the same band.

I thought if the list included a Stones feud, it would have been Brian Jones vs. the rest of the band. As soon as he was considered so much of a drunken junkie asshole that THOSE GUYS didn't want to be around him anymore, we all should have known he was doomed.

Eventually, she was the subject of "Wonderful Tonight", which wasn't a sweet love song, but a song about a man at the end of his rope because his wife couldn't farking get ready to go out on time.

Wiki says that Boyd thinks the Harrison songs "I Need You" and "Something" were written about her, and the Clapton songs "Bell Bottom Blues" and "Wonderful Tonight".
 
2013-08-01 05:36:51 AM

Alphax: "Bell Bottom Blues"


According to Clapton, the song was written for Pattie Boyd after she requested him to get her a pair of bell bottom blue jeans from the United States

In The New Rolling Stone Album Guide, J. D. Considine cites the song as an example of how Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs is "about the transformation of the blues, a process Clapton and his band mates manage through a variety of means"


1. "Honey could buy me pair of jeans in USA?"
2. "I better write song about it"
3. "Surely it's about transformation of blues through a variety of means"

Pete Townshend says in his autobiography that Mick Jagger has a massive cock - contrary to Keith Richards' claim.  I guess there's only one way to settle this...

Had never heard of #1 properly, but I had heard about black metal bands burning down churches in Norway. If anyone is interested in seeing stuff that linking to on Fark will get me banned, then check out their album cover for Dawn of the Black Hearts, that's some messed up shiat. Not just that they would use that as an album cover, but that upon discovering their bandmates suicide, the guy took a picture, and even rearranged the scene to compose it better, and then took the picture to use as the cover.

Fortunately everyone involved is now dead.

Then in the late '80s, a reunion album was planned, but Simon unexpectedly removed Garfunkel's vocals and released the disc solo.

Well, that's vague. Thanks for including the name of this mystery album, since the only two that Simon released in that timeframe were  Graceland and  Rhythm of the Saints.

No Fleetwood Mac and their utterly legendary feuding?
