    Missy- She's A B-tch

    That could very well be my theme song.

    Lady Gaga is wonderful.

    Had an awful day at work, and the sequence of "Hair," "SchieBe," "Bloody Mary," and "Bad Kids" off Born This Way was much needed on the drive home.

    It's fun how universal music can be. The city we live in has about 400k and is roughly 1.5-2 hours north of Manila, while our province has about 2.2m yet it's well known a lot of residents are not from here originally but oved here opportunity. The lot next to ours has a house under construction and earlier this morning the workers were singing along to 80's alternative bands such as New Order, Psychedelic Furs, The Cure, Modern English, etc. Not your typical playlist for this area for more than a few reasons.

    Bob Wiseman their original keyboard player was a mad genius, but after he left and James Gray joined, they hit a high point creatively as a band. Also went through a couple drummers before they hired Glenn Milchem, and they were at their absolute peak when both he and Gray were in the band together. Sadly, they kicked Gray out of the band, my personal feeling without anything real to back it up, because he wanted a bigger role in the musical direction and arrangement of the songs, and the band is really the two songwriters, and then everyone else. Haven't been as good since.

    Sadly, Gray died of a heart attack in 2013 at age 52, brought on probably by untreated diabetes. Met him once in Vermont at a show, wonderful man, brilliant musician. A player's player

    Milchem's on guitar here. But this is the sort of thing Gray brought to the band, that musicianship, that ear for arrangements.

    -Beatles
    -Pink Floyd. This one is hard because they were freaking brilliant with Syd Barrett but it's hard to imagine they could have been any better after Gilmour was added
    -Rolling Stones - see above. They were so good with Brian Jones but they had a tremendous output after his passing
    -Fleetwood Mac
    -Iron Maiden
    -RHCP - another dicey one. I think the loss or Irons was fine, but how good might they have been had Hillel Slovak not died? Still John Frusciante was brilliant
    -Nirvana - 4 or 5 drummers before Grohl joined
    -Metallica - another dicey one. Absolutely better without Mustaine but who knows how good they could have been with Cliff?
    -AC/DC? This is a hard one too

    Got worse:

    -Chicago
    -Genesis
    -Van Halen
    -Black Sabbath
    Soundgarden certainly got more talented after Hiro Yamamoto left and was eventually replaced by Ben Shepherd (after the failed Jason Everman experiment). Saying they got "better" probably depends on whether one preferred their original, drier/punkier sound in the 80s vs. their hard shift to polished alt metal with Badmotorfinger and then prog pop with Down on the Upside and King Animal.

    Chicago post-Terry Kath is virtually unlistenable.

    Aerosmith ironically got far worse after the 80s reunion of all the original members. I think the lesson to be learned there is that if you made your best music while high as a kite 24/7, you should really consider another career path after you get sober.

    And I thought I was hard on Lennon.

    Every so often at work, I hear a version of Dancing In The Moonlight.

    For those 4 minutes, my brain shuts off and it's pure fun.

    From SNL last night, I finally heard the Driver's License song.

    I have questions.

    Picked up "Tonight And The Rest Of My Life" by Nina Gordon. I should also get Veruca Salt... I heard "Eight Arms To Hold You" is decent.

    We can stop listening to Missy for the Wu-Tang Clan.

    "A Better Tomorrow"- underrated.

    Instead of doing coursework.

    I think this is a good idea.
    Yes. Missy is always better than anything else.
