The Truth About Music Videos

From this great new book "I Want My MTV":

STEWART COPELAND, The Police: I grew to understand that videos were mainly about getting our singer's face out there. Because it was so pretty. That's the way it goes. Drummers learn that lesson pretty early in life. Guitarists never quite learn that lesson. Drummers and bass players, we're over it.
So true, so true.

Anyhow, this book is highly recommended. You'll note a shocking lack of stories about Yours Truly within - the product of the continuing industry omerta about Sid Luscious and The Pants, and what they did to us!

Coldplay nails it, creates a perfect pop album

Man, this new Coldplay record is great. I wish I'd made it.

This review explains it all!

"...tugs the heartstrings like it's dragging a sofa upstairs..."

Read this review and understand what I (and hopefully the rest of The Pants) aspire to every minute of every day!
