chrixx saidI do. Madonna is rock right? Right?
I can handle Madonna... Being I am about to be old and gray I might as well confess I saw her on her Who's That Girl tour.... Is that too old? LOL
Wow, thats awsome. Thats when she could sing and dance without 50 backup dancers and a voice track. That was a good show. She really showed her stuff on that one. Back then she was competing against Michael Jackson Prince and Bruce Springsteen for live shows, Not Britney Spears and Rhianna so she had to keep it good and "live"
Yes, it was a fantastic production! She got sued during that tour for performing at the Anaheim stadium and right before she sang Get Into The Groove she told the audience, "in order for me to sing this song I dedicate to you, you need to come closer." Well as you can imagine people were jumping off the bleachers and landing on eachother, some got injured. It was the show I went to here in California. It was mindboggling.
WOW..Thats my favorite live performance of into the groove by her. so energetic...I love at the beginning when she's at the top of the stairs and after the ".....for your inspiration" line, she asks the audience "are you ready?" and they all scream...yessss, and she screams "COME ON!!!" and the song starts.....lol classic.
Anyways about rock n roll...I love guns and roses, i love appetite and the use your illusion albums. whenever patience, welcome to the jungle, or sweet child of mine comes on the car radio i secretly role up my window and do my best axl rose impersonation..i love his voice, the end of GNR was one of the greatest musical transgressions in music history. they would have been so much better. rumor has it that slash and the other guys wanted delve into other musical landscapes but axl wasn't willing to go there. thats to bad because i really think they would have grown musically.
RHCP are my favorite rock bands. By The Way is by far one of my favorite albums EVER!! in any genera. It holds a special place in my heart because I began working out for the first time to that album. My run was timed to that album, if I made it home by "throw away your television" it was a good run, if it was "cabron" it was a bad run.
U2 are indeed one of the most soulful rock groups out there. I really like their most recent stuff of the last 12 years or so. Actung Baby is good too.
