right, so I was looking at the recent issue of Rolling Stone with Amy Whinewhore on the cover. They had a section regarding all the exciting bodacious concerts going on this summer around the universe and ours truly didn't even get a thoughtful moment's recognition save a small addendum at the very end of the article...an "Also on tour..." kind of thing. How can a band that made the cover of RS twice in 3 years not even get the slightest bit of attention from such a publication?

WTF?

explain... :noway:

Let's just bash Amy Winehouse for a bit...

I'm so sick of these hipster flavors of the week... a few years ago she was some fat chick who had no buzz.

Oh I know why she is popular... she got a bunch of tattoos overnight, lost weight and got an ironic hairdo...

Oh yeah... she drinks and does lots of drugs now.

SHE IS SOOOO COOOL. SHE VOMITS BEFORE PERFORMANCES! 5 STARS!

You forgot to mention that there is a big picture of Billy at the Grand Rex screaming into the mic on the "rock and roll" page and the snippet below the picture directs you to the tour list for all other bands.

Also, they gave Tarantula like 2 stars.

Welcome to Rolling Stone magazine, the periodical that every band hates, every fan bashes, and everyone aspires to be on the cover of.

this is very true...but they need good press...hopefully SPIN's July issue (with all the fag emo covers) will do something good

Rolling Stone isn't about music anymore, its about selling ad space to jean company's alongside pictures of hollywoods latest celebrity crackwhore

Rolling Stone hasn't been about music since the early 70s.

i'd say more like 2000

No 2000 is just when the rock scene really went to hell. Can't think of any specific event that would have instigated that, like a band splitting up or somethi... oh.. right.

Or hey, how about the fact that she has a fucking amazing voice and writes incredible songs? Just because you're a little behind on good music doesn't mean you have to be so bitter about it.

Welcome to Rolling Stone magazine, the periodical that every band hates, every fan bashes, and everyone aspires to be on the cover of.

Sort of like the US version of the NME then.

Has anyone else notice NME being unnecesarily prickish to the Pumpkins in recent news articles. First there was the comment on United States (basically that they better not open with it at Reading speculating that the crowd will turn against them?)

And now this:

The Smashing Pumpkins performed a secret acoustic show to 200 fans at Berlin venue Die Zitadelle last night (June 5) - followed by a question-and-answer session with the crowd.

The new line-up performed a two-hour set, including classic tracks 'Tonight, Tonight' and 'Today', alongside a wealth of new material.

Latest single 'Tarantula', a song not best suited to an unplugged environment, was received with good-humoured laughter and the biggest applause of the evening as frontman Billy Corgan heroically, if unsuccessfully attempted to replicate its climatic solo on his acoustic guitar.

In a series of minor blunders the frontman tripped over his microphone stand, accused his leather stool of trying to humiliate him and compared a problem with his guitar to "a Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction". In spite of this, Corgan's perfectionist reputation remained intact, as he turned around to drummer Jimmy Chamberlin mid-set and requested he "keep it down".

Post-show the group's two original members remained onstage to answer questions from the audience.

Corgan declared the creation of new album 'Zeitgeist' as "a long, laborious process to perfection", before elaborating on the Pumpkins' return.

He said: "When the band broke up in 2000 a lot of people were saying it was a bad idea. But I felt we had to do it. Now we had to come back. We believe in the power of intention and prophecy."

When questioned why German word 'Zeitgeist' was chosen as the album title, Corgan joked, "Because the word Hasselhoff was taken." The vocalist continued in mocking Germany's love affair with the 'Baywatch' star, declaring: "We don't like to play our old material, we get Hasselhoff to play the songs off 'Siamese Dream'."

In respond to a query regarding vegetarianism, Corgan confessed his fondness of sausages, before claiming to be "a blood-sucking killer". Elaborating on the theme of meat, he revealed that during the making of 'Zeitgeist', Chamberlin would cook him steaks, while he wrote the songs.

Finally, when asked how it felt to meet Homer during their infamous cameo on hit American show 'The Simpsons', Chamberlin disappointedly retorted: "Homer Simpson is not a real person, you can't meet him. We didn't even meet the guy who does his voice, just a stand-in."
Just seems really petty and bitchy to me. Obviously Ol'Bill is a dick and he doesn't help himself too much with the press. Guess they should have bought advertising space after all and lined Connor's pockets for a week or two.

it's because RS is a piece of crap gossip rag. It's basically tiger beat with a different name. I do read it so I can keep up with what paris hilton and lindsay lohan are doing, though.

i don't know who amy winehouse is, and i don't want to know. i'm guessing she's one more fad in a billion-long line of fads.
