AIC & Deftones

I had the pleasure of going to Alice in Chains and Deftones in concert at Madison Square Garden. AIC was one of my favorite bands throughout high school and college and unfortunately the lead singer, Layne Staley, had passed away from a drug overdoes in early 2000. The new frontman however is excellent and sounds fantastic. Layne Staley he is not but it’s still great to hear from these awesome bands from decades past.

I don’t know what it is but there hasn’t been any movie or band since ~2000 that I’ve enjoyed as much as pre-2000. Sure I liked AudioSlave and The Killers and some random smattering of songs here and there but nothing compares to the old stuff. Now I’m not sure if that’s a sign I’m getting old? Or perhaps the quality of newer stuff is really crap? AIC lyrics and songs are dark, brooding, angry I admit, but it’s done really well and intelligently IMO.

Even movies, all my favorite movies, and scouring through my DVD collection were made lets say pre 2002. Can you remember a recent classic? Hangover was good I admit, but better then Dumb & Dumber when it came out??

Just random blathering on a lazy, saturday afternoon.
