Let's hope that this represents a trend towards change in the Grammys! I hope Radiohead wins- In Rainbows is amazing.

Who cares about this garbage? To see the 2 bands that are worth seeing (Sir Paul and radiohead) you have to set through so much bad bad music and hear a bunch of thugs thank jesus for making them great rappers. i will have to pass on this one, better luck next time

IM EXTREMELY EXCITED FOR THE JONAS BROTHERS. I HOPE THEY PLAY WITH RADIOHEAD ON STAGE TOGETHER. THAT WOULD MAKE ME SCREAM UNTIL I GO IN MY PANTS. I LOVE THOSE FRESH LOOKING BOYS MORE THAN I DO THE GREAT JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF. OH MY, IM CRYING BECAUSE OF HOW BEAUTIFUL THESE GOOEY BROTHERS LOOK. SO CLEAN AND SMOOTH.

Responding to the claim that Dre is the best rapper alive: that's just crazy. I'm not weighing in on Weezy (but that 1st Hot Boyz album was the shit in high school), but Dre is a nediocre rapper at best. As a writer and producer he is certainly one of the all-time greats, but his flows are weak and clunky. Just not very impressive at all.

Like Phish, Radiohead is one of those bands that you really have to see live to fully appreciate. I saw them for the first time this summer and I was very impressed. Prior to that I wasn't a huge fan. Give them a try next time they come your way.

Like the possessions that fill your apartment, your opinion is one of those things that has to be yours to appreciate. I saw it for the first time and was not very impressed. Prior to that I had my own. I gave yours a try when it came my way and it did not apply.

Hoodoo, that could totally be the case. The thing about me with Phish though is that I hated them at first, because I thought it was just a little too silly and whimsical. Last year, I figured there had to be something to the hype and I pretty much immersed myself in nothing but Phish and now, I can't get enough of those crazy boys. I still haven't seen them live and I hope I can pull off some tickets for the summer tour to fully cement them as one of my favorite bands. As far as Radiohead goes, I suppose I'll check them out live next time I get a chance.

emmitt retracted his statement but his reaction still stings, stating that bill had a drinking problem for a while that they all knew about. talk about cold blooded convicting a band-mate hours after he is jailed... pretty fucked up drew
