Lana Del Rey Shit Show

While everyone has their panties in a twist over Beiber Fever, let me remind you of the incredulous Lana Del Rey. She's a sham and represents everything that is evil and wrong with the modern music industry. LDR is a washed-up singer who sold her soul to the titans in the music biz. Those huckers changed her name, injected her lips with more collagen than a Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon dispatches in a month, and told her to sing like she had an ashtray in her mouth.

What hath they birthed? One big bowl of hipsterfied ostrich shit bobbing around in a soup of lukewarm PBR.

LDR's lameness was exposed during her atrocious appearance on SNL, which ruined her impending tour. Hey, I'm pissed that her manager cancelled the tour. I had scored LDR tix and I wanted to check out her shitshow for myself and drink Rhubarb Margaritas, while jacked up on Ludes and stand in the back to try to dry-hump hipster chicks cracked out on Adderall and vodka-soaked tampons.

LDR's PR people spun her SNL debacle it as best they could saying she was nervous. Okay, she got a mulligan. But why the hell did the pouty LDR stink up the joint on the Jools Holland show? I've seen corpses with better stage presence than LDR.

The Rolling Stones at Marquee Club

My favorite era of the Stones is the Mick Taylor years. Since we've been on a hardcore Rolling Stones bender the last couple weeks, G-Money recommended that we listen to this fantastic performance at the Marquee Club in 1971...

For more Stones related stuff, check out a funked-out disco version of Miss You and here's all of Some Girls (live in Texas 1978).

Today in Phishistory: Seven Below - Ghost 11/28/09

This was one of my favorite shows during the first year of the 3.0 comeback mainly because of the monster jam between Seven Below > Ghost.

The moment was so insane and intense, it requires 5 videos to capture it all...

Monday Morning Key Bumps: Hey Negrita

It's Monday morning. It's time to emerge from your food coma after a four-day weekend of binge-drinking and turkey feasts. So crank up the Rolling Stones, get down, and shake your sweet ass!

We absolutely love the post-apocalyptic-acid-freak-out outfits that the Stones sport in this 1976 "promo video" for their album Black And Blue. They perform a Bob Marley-inspired rendition of Hey Negrita. Mick Jagger is all "ruffles", Ollie E. Brown (on keys) has a wild afro, and Bill Wyman looks bored to death while wearing a rainbow-Elvis-esque jumpsuit. Ronnie Wood (yacht-rocking in a Hawaiian shirt) and Keith Richards jump around stage like they both railed an entire 8-ball before the cameras rolled. Oh and Charlie Watts? Charlie was in his "short hair cut" phase but otherwise he's same old Charlie the Iceman.

I always thought that Phish could easily master a cover of the Stones' Hey Negrita because of their chameleon-like ability to transform themselves into a reggae-Calypso-funk band.

Last week, I caught the HBO documentary on the Rolling Stones called Crossfire Hurricane. Check it out for some wild flashbacks if you haven't seen it yet.

Anyway, it's Monday morning and I've been listening to the Stones all weekend. It's time for some disco-funk Stones. So crank it up and get ready to boogie down for an 8+ minute version of Miss You...
