WTF is happening to my music heroes?

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by NiteKreeper, May 3, 2012.

  1. It's like I got old all of a sudden this week!
    First, yesterday it was Dee Snyder singing Broadway tunes? And worse: I liked it!

    And today, I read that Bruce Dickinson is a champion of the Welsh aviation industry?

    If this trend keeps up, I'll be wearing a tie and will have to stop taking cocaine for breakfast any day now!

  2. I'll get you a knitted blanket for your birthday. You can sit on the front porch and complain about all the hooligan kids in your neighbourhood.
  3. Damn kids won't stay off my lawn - in my day we had more respect...
  4. You never heard of flight 666?
  5. I was horrified when I was in the UK last year and heard on the radio some modern music celebrity issuing a public apology for being caught taking drugs.

    FMD, what has gone wrong with the world? :twisted:
  6. I know, right?
    I'm starting to understand why old people are grumpy and complain so much, and frankly it's scaring the shit out of me.

    But Keith's not apologising for anything, so there's still a little hope...
  7. Nor's Lemmy and the old bastard's still touring AFAIK.

    It's the newer generations I worry about :D.
  8. Haha there's a seat on my porch, and a glass of stout for you anytime...
    (I even told a "when I were a lad..." story recently)
  9. Over the past few years I've found that I will come out with a sentence and immediately think "Oh shit I sound like my dad". :LOL:
  10. Does it matter that I had to look both of these people up?
  11. Dee Snider singing broadway tunes is about as surprising as... well I can't think of a good analogy, but it's not very surprising.

    & the fact that you liked it...

    No comment. :-w

    I prescribe 1 x Metallica Black Album*, 1 x Back In Black, followed by The Number of the Beast as needed.

    *Do not substitute as St Anger, RE-Load, Death Magnetic etc, as they may cause nausea, depression, explosive diarrhea & suicidal thoughts.
  12. Learn to play music and you can (mostly) avoid all the rubbish these days! Or at least play better versions of them :D

    Two words - Loop station!
  13. at least back in our day, if kids were misbehaving you could simply beat them to death. When I was a lad, I was beaten to death at least once a week. No wonder they don't have any respect for their elders these days.
  14. How's that Gran Torino goin'? :wink:
  15. At least your music heroes aren't dead. :cry:
  16. ....it's not them..... It's you!....:cheeky:
