Only if you consider it a guilty pleasure. It's all in the term "guilty".

Disappointing really. The Academy blows.

Live played in London on their last tour (great show too). But before that the last time they came here was supporting Bon Jovi in 2003.

His new solo album is superb. Way better than the last Live album.
Sweet. I'll have to check his solo album out. I saw some of his other bandmates are in a band called The Gracious Few with a Candlebox guy and some other people. They're playing a show around here and tickets are $35. If there are more than 50 people there at that price, I'd be shocked. They sound just like the Charm City Devils who are from this area and still can't sell more than 200 tickets to a show. Even with bang tango opening like they has last night and those tickets were $18.

That's a ridiculous ticket price for a band no one's heard of yet. A guy from Candlebox plus a guy from Live really isn't going to pull the crowds on reputation. They were both good, but but that big.

Yeah my friend promoted the show and said they have all these huge interviews coming up and guaranteed 250 people at that price. I haven't seen interview 1 so I bet him $50 they don't have 150 people there. After hearing the song they're releasing to the radio stations if they have 100 I'd be shocked. It literally sounds 20 years old and just plods along to me.

I feel a little guilty about liking Coheed and Cambria.

And certain songs by My Chemical Romance.
