emily, jackson, ms 11/15/07
artist: smashing pumpkins
Review: basically, you sound like 90% of the close-minded, so-called "fans" of the smashing pumpkins. you are not a fan of the band and you do not respect their music. you are a fan of one or two songs that were burned through our ears via radio play back in the mid-nineties. a true fan (one that is worthy of journalizing his/her opinions) follows in the footsteps of the music and understands that artists evolve. we can't expect billy corgan to stay stuck to mellon collie forever; otherwise he WOULD just be a "karaoke machine," as he has recently stated. so congratulations on putting yourself in a category full of biased and incompetent people. do a little research before you think about reviewing a band again.

Damdam, New Orleans, LA 11/14/07
artist: Rage Against the Machine
Review: I once worked in the concert industry and have been going to shows for 30 years. That said, the RATM show at VooDoo was the all time best most rockin show from the 1st note till the last. I have been to thousands of rock shows but this was by far the best. Only thing I would like better is all original Led Zep, Oh well, I may have to wait for this one.

TJ Merhi, Hickory, NC 11/07/07
artist: Van Halen
Review: I personally think that any song eddie and the guys come up with is going to be amazing, but the person singing it makes a big difference. In my opinion i feel as if van halen is not van halen without Sammy Hagar. I had a chance to go see them in charlotte, close to where i live, but declined for the simple reason that it just didnt seem like Van Halen the way it should be. In all honesty though i dont care, van halen is going to sound good. I like David Lee Roth, but personally i feel that Sammy Hagar is prolly the one greatest singer on the face of the earth. Its a good thing also that Wolfgang is up there with his father and Good Luck guyz.

Review: this site is so coool

Brenda, Dousman, WI 11/07/07
artist: Guns N' Roses
Review: Axl Lost all credibility in the 90's. He need not bother trying to psych up fans because he only does it for his own ego. GNR is NOT GNR anymore and never will be. Axl was NOT the band, infact, had Axl retired from the band, perhaps they would have been able to continue successfully with another vocalist. He was an Asshole. True GNR fans would've given a new vocalist a chance rather than listent to Axl's constant whining and bitching.

Jay-rod, Mukwonago WI 11/06/07
artist: Wilco
Review: Wilco set a new standard on crowds that stay unmoved to good music by playing their hearts out and actually getting the crowd to show their appreciation. Looking down from the balcony I saw heads moving like the waves caused by a rock thrown, eminating out of the front of the stage. I myself was disgusted by such stuffyness but at the same time felt vulnerable being right next to the stage, on the balcony while all eyes were fixed on tweedy and the band. but I soon found the musics call too overwhelming for me to refuse the dance, and boy did I go. This was an epic performance by the band and an close failure by the crowd. With tweedy singing on his own, the respect of the crowd was unfound. Drunken outburst from popchart fans killed the intimate moment of "Someone elses song". The braw thrown up on stage was a redeeming not in my eyes on the crowd and I seem more distraught over the crowds behavior than Wilcon did, for after three encores, jeff still had a smile on h! is face and the pain in his songs.

Rick Cordeiro, Visalia, California 11/06/07
artist: Stevie Nicks
Review: They don't call her the "Queen Of Rock And Roll" for nothing. Stevie has been rocking "my world" for years, from the late 70's to today. The Crystal Visions tour was proof that she has still got "it" today. Rock On you Ancient Queen You!! Love Ya, Ric

Sandy, Manassas Park, VA 11/04/07
artist: Stevie Nicks
Review: Great review of Stevie's taping for Soundstage. I am really looking forward to seeing this when it airs and will definitely buy the DVD. I heard from fans that went to the taping that Rhiannon will astound you. I hope that the editors keep in some of the stuff she says between songs. Stevie does have a humorous side that few people get to see. Stevie Nicks really is the Queen of Rock!
