    No Respect

    So I got the new Rolling Stone that was mentioned on here the other day. I have a real problem with Rolling Stone these days. I've read the magazine for years and have always liked it until the recent couple of years. They used to cover ROCK music. Now it's the latest gossip, who Avril flipped off, whether Nick and Jessica are still together, speculation on the name of Britney's baby and so on. Album reviews seem to be devoted entirely to bands who will be has-beens in a week or two.
    But what has me really ticked about the magazine is that when VH mounted their tour last summer there was no story. Sure, they threw out a little blurb in the first 10 pages or so but no REAL story. One of the top 10 grossing tours of the year and they can't give them a few pages?
    Now today I get the issue with Orlando Bloom on the cover (what he has to do with Rock and Roll I don't know). There is a 5 page article on the current Motley Crue tour!!! Who has been more of an influential force in MUSIC in the past 25 years? VH or the CRUE? That seems like a no-brainer to me. I mean I don't dislike Motley Crue or anything, but aren't they a little more "style" and a little less "substance"? I've just always felt like Motley Crue was a little more show than a genuine rock band. Just my opinion.
    Oh wait, they did mention Edward didn't they? A shot of him chasing of some autograph hounds and saying he's "done with" the whole Sammy thing. After which the consumate professionals at Rolling Stone refer to VH fans as "mullet-haired" or something of that nature. My subscription runs out in the fall. I'll not be renewing. I don't need to know when Agelina and Brad are getting hitched.

    1. People need to take critical reading classes.
    2. We have a rediculous thread on this already.
    3. Close this Mofo.

    I don't know why people get so mad that RS sucks. It's been the
    music counterpart of Entertainment Weekly ever since I can remember.
    They may as well call it Celebrity Blowjob magazine. Next you're gonna
    tell me that People is nothing but fluff. Say it ain't so!

    BTW, the "Done with it" quote was ascribed to Sam and the mullethead
    remark more towards his fans.

    Rock was popular in the 80-ies till mid 90-ies, they could make big money on it, like Tommy Lee kicked his wifes butt, Alex got diversed, Zakk talks about an#$ sex with his wife, Ozzy drunk again it could last forever. Now it's covering the other heroes the public adores, from RS management's position they're doing just what's needed for their pockets. As simple as that - rock doesnt sell these days, people have to feed their families.

    Gettin pretty tired of this stuff myself, but all this confusion is really the band's fault. It would all end with a simple update of the site, or statement. But no, they can't bring themselves to do that.

    Anyways, I'm closing this one up.
