new waters

I'm constantly getting bombarded with new music, new bands and in truth, i don't have that many ears.

But in all fairness, I kind of already hold out some of that time for bands I'm waiting to see come around again.
Sophmore albums, greatest hits, etc.

So here's a couple of albums I'm kinda stoked about.
And when I say 'kinda' i mean, I AM!! :) enough to not eat cheese for life!!
Haha, actually nothing is that good, not even jesus's burps. A week. I can do a week for the following acts. [and that's a BIG deal if you know my cheese eating habits]

Ok, I know it's been a while since this guy has made any goddamn sense, but I just can't seem to let go of Gish.

Billy Corgan is set to give away new Smashing material for free, one by one

The collection of 44 songs will be given away for free, with the first song being made available around the end of October.

Not sure of this will be before or after he and David Byrne get psycho analyzed for Carl Jung

Here's one guy coming out with an album but not as the drummer.

Mr. Phil Collins underwent surgery that left him unable to play the drums :(
If you don't know, he was amazing drummer.

The former singer and drummer for Genesis told a German newspaper that since he had surgery in April to repair a dislocated vertebra in his neck, he doesn't have feeling in his fingers and isn't able to pick up his sticks.

The 58-year-old musician was quoted by Hamburger Abendblatt on Monday as saying the only way he could drum is if he were to "glue drumsticks to my hands."

But that's not stopped his recording aspirations. He told the newspaper he plans a new CD that will feature covers of 30 songs from the Motown label in 2010.

"I want the songs to sound exactly like the originals," the paper quoted him as saying.

Collins, who lives in Switzerland, was in Hamburg to celebrate the first anniversary of the debut of "Tarzan" the musical. The show features music Collins composed for the 1999 animated Disney film, including the Oscar-winning song "You'll Be in My Heart."
I'm sorry. Every time I think of Phil Collins, this rolls through my head

Annnnd, there ya go.
