    Damn.......even with him, I couldn't listen to that crap for more than a minute.(between her(annoying), Lady Gaga(wtf is it), and Lambert(LOL).......wtf is wrong with music these days?)

    (I'm guessing people already know about this, but here it is for good measure)

    Extreme guitarist Nuno has joined forces with Rihanna and will be her 2010 world tour lead guitarist. Streaming Live from London, November 16, Rihanna and Nuno will be performing tracks from her album, Rated R, to a free online audience. Join in on the largest free music event of the year at http://nowplaying.nokia.com/join-us.

    Nuno states, "Hey all.......Nuno.. here. I wanted to share some news with you... A friend and Music Director, Tony Bruno, reached out to me and asked if I would be interested in playing guitar with Rihanna. Rihanna is a regular in the Bettencourt-house playlist... And as much as I dig her as an artist... my first thought was that there isn't a whole lot of guitar in her music and therefore probably not the greatest fit for what I do.

    But before I had a chance to verbalize that thought... Tony said, "before you say anything let me play you the direction she wants to go live." And when I heard it... I said wow, this rocks... it's heavy and funky... and it hit me that this is MY shit... this is my style... how I love to play... I got very excited at the possibility of playing some of her great songs with a heavier treatment. When I asked Tony Bruno why?... he told me that Rihanna loves bands like Paramore and Linkin Park and loves to push it up a notch or two live in the rock department. Hmmm... let me think? Touring and sharing the stage with a cool and talented artist like Rihanna... and being able to bring what I do passionately to the table as a musician and performer...? IM IN! And having finished the first round of rehearsals... it did not disappoint. Even better than what I expected because she also has the most incredible band, and I get the privilege to add to their wall of sound. It's gonna be fun. Come see and hear it for yourself!

    And BTW... No... this is NOT the end of Extreme. We have a live DVD and CD coming out in early 2010 and we will be writing new material throughout the year. We had a great run across the globe on Saudades do Rock....and we'll be back."

    I guess Adam Lambert sorta got what he wanted...everyone is talking about him, I just don't think he wanted the talk to be so negative...Adam, sorry to say, they're not laughing with you, they're laughing at you.


    but now I know how those folks who got arrested for being so noisy in the sack must of sounded...too bad they couldn't arrest Lambert for this noise pollution


    and GaGa? she's growing on me, no doubt she can sing..and even play an instrument!......but I can do without the "artsy" stuff.

    I didn't even know they still did this show.

    Does anyone really care about music shows anymore when the vast majority of major acts do not write any music or play any instruments?

    Any idiot can go on a stage, sing out of key and make an ass out of themselves, but for some reason we keep treating some of these stars as if they have talent.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    That's because we need someone to tear down in a year or two to feel better about ourselves...

    Ahh, yes, well there is that of course.

    I doubt it will be on here though, we are too busy tearing down Ed and Dave to worry about who Adam Lambert is kissing.

    Damn, didn't take Dick Clark Productions very long to take the videos down from YouTube!

    He's got nothing else to do all day except sit in front of a computer with a drool cup while waiting for his nanny to change his Depends... Might as well be a little productive and go after YouTube posters...

    I guess Van Halen didn't show up, again.

    On Lambert, I guess those in the east saw an even more provocative performance. I liked him on IDOL and hope that he was just caught up in everything being his first Awards show and all. I think he has the talent, I am hoping for a more Bowie type of style for him.

    I cannot tell if Gaga is good looking or not.

    I didn't like him when I saw him on Idol - he didn't have to tell me he was gay, I would've bet the ranch on it. Still, when are these yahoos going to realise that there is a responsibility that comes with appearing on live television. Pretty soon the live performance on television will be a thing of the past. So many other performers came before them that were able to turn it on (or turn it off - depending on how you look at it) when they were on live tv, why do people have so much trouble with it now?

    Not that I ever felt like the target demographic for these kinds of shows (has Slayer, Led Zep, or Motorhead done an AMA?), but I feel way more NOT the demographic every year. "What a drag it is getting old....."

    Led Zeppelin received one of those "lifetime achievement" awards or whatever they call it years ago from the AMA's.
