And the comments weren't kind! Not by a long shot!
Now we hear that the band, dispirited by what they saw as a well-written and well-informed indictment of their entire career, have abruptly given up on their signature country-rock sound and taken up (holy cow!) death metal!
Needless to say, the world of music has been taken aback by this ... huh? ... what's that? Is somebody out there waving at us, trying to get our attention?
Yes! Somebody is! Why, it's our old friend and fellow Y! Music blogger, Rob O'Connor! Everybody likes Bob-O!
Come on in, Bob-O!
What's that? Hmm. Um hmm. Really? You're kidding!
Wow. OK, OK. Well, thanks for the heads up. Seriously, man. Yeah, yeah, we'll bring the hot dogs to your thing. Again. Hot dogs can be expensive, you know.
Important blog note! This week, Framed welcomes the amazing Eagles of Death Metal and their great video, "I Want You So Hard."
The Eagles of DM hail from Palm Desert, California, and are a humorous band. They've wowed audiences since their 1998, colossally-named, Peace, Love, Death Metal debut LP.
Incredibly, perhaps, they don't actually play death metal. And their touring band is different from their studio band. Drummer Josh Homme -- er, studio drummer Josh Homme -- once described the band as "bluegrass slide guitar mixed with stripper drum beats and Canned Heat vocals."
OK, good enough for us! Let's enjoy the video. the captions, and the complexity of life!
See you next week!
