Q: The fashion parade on the red carpet seems to have become as important a part of the ceremony as the awards themselves. What dress code rules would you mandate there?
Exene: Put everyone on an even playing field. Give them each $200. They have to get their outfit and jewelry from either a thrift store or an independent designer who is out of work or broke.
Losing My Religion is 20 years old
REMHQ: 20 YEARS OF LOSING MY RELIGION So, 20 years ago, I was the WEA label manager for the territory of Israel, and despite being lectured that a band like R.E.M. would never ever succeed there, like the rest of the world, Out Of Time blew up like a rocket - to the point that the band actually agreed to come to Israel to do press. Bands barely tour Israel, much less just come for PR, but the...

No one gave a fucking damn when moms & their daughters couldn’t get Miley Cyrus tickets because the scalpers had an in, or when the scalpers siphoned off half of Giants Stadium for Bruce Springsteen. But suddenly! No one gets LCD Soundsystem tickets, and This Is A Serious Problem Which Demands All Serious Journalists PAY ATTENTION. This shit has been going on FOR YEARS - it’s...

bonnaroo 2011, and the chances of me going
me: pretty good lineup.
boyfriend: Not quite good enough to get me to go, though. I think.
me: You mean "not good enough to pay $750 to rent a tent and sleep in it for a week"
boyfriend: Yeah that too.
things i still don't understand from last night's...
I don’t understand - why is it the fault of people who don’t like Justin Bieber that Lady Antebellum won? I don’t have a vote, neither does your average Joe or Josephine on the street who is tired of this year’s pop idol. We said the same shit about Donny Osmond and NKOTB and the DiFranco Family and and and and and, we just didn’t have Twitter and Facebook to say this...

Replacements, live at the Ritz, 1987 →
this show. this show! i was front and center until all hell broke loose. I took my brother to this show for some unknown reason, thinking that maybe he would like them (he liked Steve Earle, who opened, more). I lost my jacket. I lost my watch, which fell off my arm, only to see it on some girl’s wrist later (and she gave it to me when I asked her if she’d found it on the floor because...
