But now we're starting to see BANDS being remade? This is f'ing pathetic.

The New Cars (http://www.noblepr.co.uk/Press_Releases/new_cars/biography.htm)

Devo 2.0 (http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1001919314)

What's next, Aluminum Maiden? :shakeno:

I saw part of the interview with the New Cars, they said they just couldn't let the great music die off. I actually like the Cars, And I thought Rick Ocasik(sp) was good, but let it go guys. I think they are just looking for a paycheck.

Not quite bro. Mini-KISS is a goof, and they don't play any instruments. They just lip-synch at parties and clubs.

These "bands" are actually putting out albums and touring.

the new cars is the show i want to see the most this year - todd rundgren was the perfect choice to replace ric ocasek - aluminum maiden is quite fitting actually - i pretty much stopped listening to them after paul dianno left - seriously pagan how many bands have all their original members in it - i get your point though :wink: - but as a cars/todd rundgren fan, i'm interested not because i'm buying this "new cars" b.s. but because i appreciate their music and am a huge fan of the musicians represented - besides, it sounds like a fun show - and that's what it is all about right? :wink:

Let's see, the Cars....main songwriter gone, two lead vocalists gone. ONE member remaining, and not even a major member.

NOT the Cars. End of story.

I too would love to hear the music they come out with, but don't call it the Cars. Would you listen to Ozzy if he came out alone and called himself Black Sabbath? I know I didn't listen to the Sabbath album when it was just Iommi in the band.

It does sound like a fun show...so Todd should bring this to the clubs and DO it as a fun show, not release albums and tour under another band's legacy to make some money and get himself back into the spotlight. :wink:

As for not listening to Maiden after D'Anno left, man you've deprived yourself of some good music bro. :lol:

Your volley. :tongue:

you asked if i would listen to ozzy if he came out alone and called himself black sabbath but you listened to black sabbath w/out ozzy when dio joined right?

Iron Maiden didn't disappear for 15 years and then resurface with all new members. The changes made to the band were gradual. Therefore, it was an evolving of Iron Maiden, not "The New Iron Maiden" 20 years later.


you asked if i would listen to ozzy if he came out alone and called himself black sabbath but you listened to black sabbath w/out ozzy when dio joined right?
Tony Iommi, Bill Ward and Geezer Butler were still there. 3/4 Black Sabbath = STILL Black Sabbath.


it's the new cars not the cars...
Playing all the hits of the Cars.

Lame.

You need to hear Powerslave, Piece of Mind, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, Somewhere In Time, Fear of the Dark, Brave New World, Dance of Death, etc. etc.....

for me, iron maiden ceased to exist after paul d'ianno left the band - enter bruce dickinson: new band - should have been named the new iron maiden




Tony Iommi, Bill Ward and Geezer Butler were still there. 3/4 Black Sabbath = STILL Black Sabbath.

3/4 black sabbath = ck sabbath. it's simple math really






Playing all the hits of the Cars.

Lame.


does iron maiden play songs off the 1st albums...? yes





You need to hear Powerslave, Piece of Mind, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son, Somewhere In Time, Fear of the Dark, Brave New World, Dance of Death, etc. etc.....

heard a few - compared to killers... pass





30 all. :wink:

Ah, I keep forgetting that "so D-Day says it is, so it shall be." :lol:

Unfortunately, 99.999% of the metal world disagrees with you. Besides...you like HAIR BANDS, so your assessment of Maiden is rendered null and void. :lol:


3/4 black sabbath = ck sabbath. it's simple math really
So then by your math, Rundgren should call this band the r's, since there's only ONE original member left and they haven't been together for 15 YEARS. It's a joke. A Cars tribute band that's milking the nostalgia cash cow for one more pailfull.


does iron maiden play songs off the 1st albums...? yes
I'll have to refer to you as the Artful Dodger. You keep ducking the fact I gave you about Maiden.

To reiterate, Maiden never went away, they evolved. Aside from the fact that they were still an opening act when D'Anno left the band. They didn't become household names until Dickinson was singing. And the lineup that they rose to prominance with is the CURRENT lineup, plus one. :wink:

Again, you like hairbands. :chuckle:

Actually, make that 40-15 me. You're getting a penalty and a warning for trying to blow smoke up everyone's *** by saying my points were lame when you employed the "Chewbacca Defense". :tongue: :lol:

Ric died bro.

Oh wait, no that was Benjamin Orr.

HelenaBucket ran into Ric in NYC one day.... literally. He was coming out of a store, and she was rounding the corner and slammed right into him. She's all of 5 foot nothing, and Ric's a pretty tall guy...needless to say, she's the one who bounced back... :lol:

While without Rick, they should not be the Cars, the addition of rundgren maybe interesting, I'll give them a listen.
