    Kind of off topic but thought some others might be interested in joining us. We currently have 2 car loads going already. You must make your own hotel arrangements. We stay at the extended stay $50/day
    Show is 2 days, 3 stages, 40+ metal bands. Zombie & Godsmack are headling this year. Last year was amazing and sold out. Dont wait to buy tix if you're going. I'lk be OC'ing everywhere but the stadium of course.

    Looks decent, but kinda more new age than I'm into.

    What I should have done was take a vacation to go see this-

    If Slayer was going to be there I might consider it. Don't care for most of the bands on that tour.

    I had some great pictures from last years show. And one video did come out. Unfortunately Motley Crew headlined but Slipknot was just before their set and they kick ass.

    Hmm how can I put this in a family friendly way. They're liberal over the hill jerks. They pray at the alter of liberalism (obama) and felt it necessary to put Bush on the big screen and morph him in to the devil. I actually left the show before their set was done. The only one in that group with a brain is Niki Sixx.

    I like the Crue for their music. They are among the endangered species I call Blue Collar Pride bands. They make music about getting drunk, starting fights, riding motorcycles, getting laid, things like that. These days, far too many bands have music about "woe is me the times are tough, I'm a whiny little moron".

    One thing I won't do is take political advice from anyone who currently or in the past was a severe drug addict, or is otherwise known for acting stupidly. Such as Motley Crue. My respect for them is only for their music.

    Bono is a similar character. He specializes in music, and if you take him seriously you'd think he was an expert with AIDS, poverty, and 3rd world struggles of all types. Yet he clearly isn't. The difference between him and Motley Crue, for me, is that I don't listen to U2 because I don't like their music, but my dislike for the music has nothing to do with the fact that Bono is a tool.

    Eh, their politics suck. Good thing I don't listen to them for their political view. If I turned everything I did into a political movement, or based all my actions on politics, I'd be one miserable S.O.B.

    See that's the problem. I came to listen to music not a rock band trying to push a liberal agenda on me. I hope you're not trying to insinuate that I base everything I do on politics. If that's what you're saying I'm not sure where that is coming from as you don't know a single thing about me.

    If that was their M.O., that would be a shame.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with slamming politicians as a rule, and not picking favorites. A good example of the Crue doing this, if I remember right, is the Hell On High Heels video.

    On the other hand, if they start getting politically preachy at shows, that would piss me off.

    Not sure why you felt the need to try an make a comment about me personally. Someone asked why I didnt like Motley Crew and I provided an answer. Lets try an keep the conversation about the topic of the thread and not on the people posting.

    I think there is some misunderstanding here.

    Taurus is a very freedom oriented person. I don't think he was commenting on you, Mike. If a person wanted to live every second of his or her life devoted 100% to political motivations, I don't think he'd mind a bit. I believe his comment was in regards to his own tastes.

    Um, no, that was not a personal attack on you. I'm sorry you took it that way. It was just an observation, Mike.

    Ah that great, sorry about that just a misunderstanding. Sometimes when reading these things it's hard to understand who specifically the person writing was referring to.

    I can't wait for this show. We're big in to Godsmack have seen them live around 20 times and have driven to Saginaw and other locations to see them live.

    That's called a tattoo. You know, where you go in and pay someone good money to poke you several thousand times with a needle, then you suffer in pain when someone is a smarta$$ and smacks it to "set the ink".

    Oh, you mean the bruise... paintball.

    Just teasin' ya. Oh, I'm topless in that pic. Crap. Maybe I should take that down...
