Rock-n-Roll needs a Charlie Sheen
I hate Metallica. But I love Metallica.
I love their music, most of it. I've seen them in concert 5 or 6 times, one of those being at the Thomas Mack Center on UNLV's campus in Las Vegas. I think they're one of the best all around rock bands ever.
But I hate them. Metallica put out that movie "Some Kind Of Monster" and it was the single worst thing to have to rock and roll, besides Jeff doing weekends on The Planet. They talked about their feelings, their emotions, and they brought in a counselor to basically act as a guardian ad litem for the boys. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Rock and Roll is supposed to be comprised of bad asses, always has been. Our genre does it like no other. Or we used to. Seems after Metallica did this movie, which I will from here on out refer to as a propoganda film, the wild and crazy element of rock has dwindled. Gone are the days of Ozzy biting off bat heads and Nikki Sixx snorting ants. I miss the shock.
Shocking these days is Lady Gaga.
We need some guys willing to take risks on stage. I don't mean risks of getting hurt, but risks on style. Risks on their look. Risks. Kanye West takes risks. He's a loose cannon, I like that. All the headlines belong to rappers and Top 40 bubblegum music acts.
I want a rock band that don't only bring it with their music, but I want outlaws. Risk takers. When is the last time you heard of a rock band doing as little as tearing up a hotel room. No more TVs in the pool.
We need someone in rock to be an outlaw. A real life crazy. Rock-n-Roll needs a Charlie Sheen.
