    Default The Real Music Observer-Biggest Music Critic Fraud Ever

    You ever happen to run into videos uploaded by Mr. Dave Spuria, aka "The Real Music Observer?" https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpx...xw32MVPFWnUWmQ

    Basically, he's an absolute hack who's a third-rate Eddie Trunk clone, except that whatever one thinks of Trunk (I personally can't stand him), this guy merely regurgitates things in an incredibly obvious way and doesn't remotely come by things honestly. He has an extremely narrow focus on AOR (though he does focus quite a bit on VH stories), and doesn't mention things in the wider world of music, like say, anything about the recent death of Little Richard. He beats the same tired viewpoints and stories over and over, and also arrives at things in an incredibly illogical manner.

    For example, one thing he's focused on and bitched about endlessly is Fleetwood Mac's moving on without Lindsey Buckingham. It's understandable to be upset, but he takes it to an extreme by fellating Lindsey to a ludicrous extent, calling him "the Brian Wilson of Fleetwood Mac", which is not a compliment about Lindsey's talents as much as an insult that devalues Brian. There's only one Brian Wilson, after all, and Lindsey's good, but not THAT good. He also likes to say that Stevie Nicks could never write anything on her own, and that the only reason any of her songs are good is because of Lindsey, and that therefore, her solo achievements are really Lindsey's as well.

    This is among great deal of asshattery and other elements too numerous to mention here. Other than the fact that he has a massive hate boner for Irving Azoff, and thinks he's to blame for everything, including concession prices, bitching about "$15 Azoff beer."

    The things that get you riled up continue to amaze me.

    Never heard of the guy.

    Followed the link, he has 32K subscribers...there are cats on YouTube with more subscribers than this guy. Pick something else to get worked up over man, something that matters.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    I'm not particularly riled by this guy. In fact, I barely give him the time of day. I just wanted to share this hack with all of you to see for yourselves.

    I guess when you never leave the house these are the kinds of pointless things that you actually think about.

    I don’t think I’ve ever clicked on anything Toxic has ever linked to in his history at this site. Not breaking precedent for this nonsense.

    That would depend on your definition of "good".

    Twice, Fleetwood Mac has replaced Lindsey with two guitarists, because they obviously couldn't find any single person to do what Lindsey does on guitar.

    Lindsey Buckingham is more than good. The dude is a goddamn legend.
