    For the Alice in Chains fans in the thread, Jerry Cantrell just finished recording his first solo album since Degradation Trip. I loved that one. I heard a while back that this one will be heavy on acoustic numbers, but that could have just been conjecture since Jerry played a couple acoustic only shows at the time. We'll see, but I'm more excited about this release than I would be for another "Alice in Chains" record.

    King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard!

    Now that is a right snappy name!

    Only thing snappier is their pace putting out records. 18 in their 10 years of existence!

    I haven't listened to them enough to give them a full recommendation, but they're worth checking out for anyone looking for something a little different.

    There are numerous killer rock bands between 1990-2005ish lots of good music in that extended decade... IMO of course, I might even say the last best decade (add a few years) as a whole for music in general..

    Anecdotally, and in the spirit of this thread, I want to throw in an RIP to Chris Cornell.
    Neither Soundgarden, nor Audioslave, nor Temple of the Dog have been mentioned, but his influence lives on.

    Actually, both Soundgarden and Audioslave have been mentioned, but the mention of Chris Cornell gives me the opportunity to once again recommend: https://www.amazon.com/Songbook-Explicit-Chris-Cornell/dp/B005SZNZAY/ref=mp_s_a_1_6?dchild=1&keywords=chris+cornell&qid=1615051855&sprefix=chris+cor&sr=8-6

    Is it just me, or has there been no mention of Nickelback?

    B)

    Yea, no surprise there. I will say that I met a fellow academic at a conference who was in a touring rock band post college for a few years in the mid aughties, and played a festival with Nickelback. He said they were the nicest guys, invited them in to play video games in their trailer and hang out before the show.

    Further empirical proof, I suppose, that niceness does not necessarily make good rock n roll...

    Good rock n roll only comes from throwing naked groupies out of hotel windows.

    That results in something beyond Rock n' Roll that has yet to be defined.

    I personally like Nickelback, took the wife to see them, they blew my away. Their tribute to Dimebag was incredible... no hate here, but they wouldn’t make my list... Cage the Elephant getting mentioned made me smile, they are soooo good...

    I'm partial to the Foo Fighters as probably my top rock band. Dave is an incredible musician and I really like their new album. Unfortunately haven't had a chance to see them live yet.

    You know I'm kinda fond of DH's music but I hope their albums are mastered a ton better than their videos. I hear far too much distortion to my ears.

    Every time someone posts to this thread I keep thinking it's Bruce back, and it just reminds me that Bruce is dead. Or banned. Same thing though. Now he's Soylent Green.
