Back in the day I saw a band from Kansas called Dorothy that blew me away and I was very surprised they never made it big.

Heard the Hum song "Stars" song on a Cadillac commercial the other day. I liked that song in high school, guess I'm starting to get into their demographic.
So I of course flipped on the iPod and had to listen to it on my way to the store.

I'm not sure if I've seen that video before...

Also, big ups for the guy who said Stone Roses. I know I'm in the minority, but I think I prefer their second album honestly.

Yeah, I heard they broke up when their lead singer died.

Of course, I was in a suit working on the 20th floor of a major bank when another office drone informed me of the death of the most important musician in my life.

Ohhh - I forgot about that. I am excited when I hear it. Thanks for the reminder.

Man! I was just listening to "In The Meantime" today! I won tickets to go see them from my local radio station back when I was 17. It was an 18 and over show though... :(

Weird, I listened to that song by Helmet yesterday - actually that whole album. Connection?

It would be interesting to see what Alice in Chains would be doing now if the original singer was still around.

I dunno, most of my favorite Alice songs were written by Cantrell, not Staley. If Cantrell was still doing a lot of their writing, they still could be pretty good. I did like Staley's vocals though.

Anyone know anything about the 4th studio album they're supposedly working on?

that entire Sub Pop/Amphetamine Reptile/Touch and Go/SST/Homestead roster was pretty tough to beat.

Probably no connection, at least none that I know of.

Side note, the lead singer from Spacehog is married to Liv Tyler. Lucky guy...
