Ric's, you old dog you

The weekend got off to a good start with a burrito at Mad Mex and then some bevies at Ric's, my old drinking haunt. We got talking about music, as you do at a live music joint and discussed at length 'having it'. Mike Paton has it, Nick Cave has it Tex Perkins, hell yeah, he has it. Some ladies who have it, Deborah Harry, Stevie Nicks and Kim Gordon. What makes these performers so darn hot? What makes someone 'not'? Mull it over, and here's a quote from Mr REread while you're at it.

"Nickleback is ... if you travelled through a transdimensional porthole, through a space/time continuum and found a version of Metallica, expect they'd all be wankers who had been breastfed for too long."

Has it ...


Um ... not

I think about this on a regular basis. Mike Patton, Thurston Moore, Beck, Michael Stipe, Jack White, David Bowie, Cat Stevens - they all have it. As do Kim Gordon, PJ Harvey, Stevie Nicks, Karen O and Alison Mosshart.

Mr Nickelback certainly does NOT have 'it'. I still laugh when I recall the guy from Frenzal Rhomb referring to him as the Paddle Pop Lion...

How good is Faith No More? Have been cranking King For A Day in the car recently.
Has it: The Avalanches, Thom Yorke, E (of The Eels), Sharon Jones, Wayne Coyne, Bjork and Lou Rhodes.

Bring on summer gigs!
