Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

Little homophobic are we??? Adam is the most amazing singer/performer to come along in years and narrow minded people like you are missing out big time...your loss really.

Mr. Gold, you are a waste of journalistic space.

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

Gee, great article Mr. Gold. Where did you get your degree in journalism, online?

Nice to know homophobia is alive and well in close minded hicks like yourself. By the way, the concert is sold out as is almost the entire tour, fatty.

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

After seeing a vomit inducing photo of the author of this article, Im not surprised he hating on Lambert. It's called penis envy ladies and gentleman, and Mr. Gold has a severe case of it. Im also surprised this douche even has a job after reading this homophobic garbage of an article. How embarrassing for this pub to even put it out there.

oh give me a friggin break, this is what journalism has come true? seriously? if you want to be a music snob and be taken seriously, try to write a balanced review. Cue *eye rolls*

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

Mr Gold is entitled to his opinion. I saw Adam in Toronto Canada this June and he was fantastic. To all the fans going tonight, you will experience one of the greatest performers of today. In videos Adam is amazing but one cannot imagine how fantastic he is live until you have actually seen him on stage. Have fun and please send lots of videos for us who cannot attend.

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

Adam following Diana's rendition of ROF made the song come to life by expressing the passion and the burning love expressed in words but NOT in the original execution by Cash. Cash's version was a pure contradiction between the message and the music, where as Adam made the song "whole". I am sure Mr. Cash would've been proud of Adam and the song's revival.
I hope there are enough musicians and people appreciating real artistry to value the fact that Adam chose to perform in Nashville despite his encounter with Mr. Travis on AI8.
To those lucky to go - enjoy the concert! I am sure it will be truly epic!

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

You don't like Adam, that's clear, but your writing is juvinile and embarassing to real journalists. I agree with the person above who said they wouldn't pass Journalism 101 with that article. Ya know, I really think June and Johnny would appreciate and even LIKE Adam's Ring Of Fire. They appreciated music as art and Johnny even covered a Nine Inch Nails song for crying out loud. You might see Adam's version as the amazing work of art that is if you would just open your heart and mind a little and realize it's entertainment's not that deep. ;)

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

Adam's version of Ring of Fire is based on Dilana's version of the song. It was also a big hit with most viewers when Adam sang it on Idol. His fans love it on tour as well. Please get your facts straight and try not to let your obvious bias show when you write a review. You can pan a performer without such blatant bias.

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

What a terrible thing to say about corpse-raping Johnny Cash. That is an absolutley horrible thing to suggest or even hint at. What a disgusting thing to say. Its ONLY a cover of a song. Thats ALL. And to say something as disgusting as you have makes anything you say reek. Just because you dont like a song or a cover of the way its done doesnt mean you have to say these disgusting things. I think you should find a new line of work because this makes you look really sick.

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

Well..Mr. had your 15 minutes of 'homophobic and bigoted' fame.

Let's not give this 'unprofessional loser' any more hits.

Sorry all the Southern people who have embraced and appreciated the 'musical gifts' of Adam Lambert have to be presented to the world by such a uninformed and closed minded person who can't embrace the positive energy of 'diversity and tolerance'.

Adam by being true to himself is truly changing things for the better. So...throwing some glitter your way Mr. Gold! Ha!

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

I gave this one star because it made me laugh out loud. 'Corpse-raped'? Really? That didn't seem a little over the top as you wrote it? Not to mention misguided. Johnny Cash would be the first to appreciate Dilana's version of Ring of Fire. He was a rebel, not a god.

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

My friend is a huge Lambert fan and showed me this article because (1) my father's people are from Nashville and (2) my father was a huge Cash fan and so I grew up listening to his music. I have to say that it's one thing if you don't like Lambert's music, but it's a whole 'nother thing to appropriate Johnny Cash's memory to slam him. Frankly, sir: You are full of crap. Johnny Cash was NOT a country purist. Never was, right up to his death. He followed his own vision-- which is something that even I can tell Mr. Lambert does as well. So there is no way Cash would have been rolling over in his grave over Lambert's version of ROF. It's my guess -- which IS apparently more educated than yours given your complete lack of understanding of Cash as an artist and man -- that Cash would have been laughing his butt off at the courage it took to sing that song that way on the AI stage. I also believe he would have also been knowledgeable enough about music to know that Lambert's ROF is a vocal master class. Furthermore, I sincerely doubt Mr. Cash would have deliberately gone out of his way to post an old photo of Mr. Lambert in a show costume to prove your homophobic point. But you do on, sir, with your ill-educated and bigoted self. I'm sure you can rest easy on that air of superiority.

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

your little pre-write up shows you to be an idiot of of a blogger. Adam's version had already been done before and I sweat JC was probably applauding from his grave. You Tennesseans who have sold out his concerts there are in for a real treat! You better stay home though with all the other really old out of touch non music appreciators though. Adam will probably be too much for you.:) Wouldn't want you to hurl during ROF.:)

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

What an ugly, unAmerican way to represent your city. And why would you use your platform to try to kill off the tourism and the dollars that pop/rick tours bring to people who live and work in your area? Maybe your boss needs to find a new writer who presents more intelligent and informed music critique and more accurately represents the values of the Nashville area in 2010?

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

I'm sure that, out of the thousands of available photographs of Adam Lambert, there's a good reason this particular photograph was chosen to accompany this pathetic, insult-filled, clearly biased excuse of an "article." "Hot Topic's answer to Clay Aiken"? His fans are "musical masochists"? What incredible lack of respect, all around. Johnny Cash, a rebel himself and a veteran of many an unorthodox take on a song, would have been likely to admire Adam's courage to perform that version of ROF on American Idol (of all places), and likely would have grooved on the result as well. I hope to heck that you aren't the person assigned to actually review the concert - there's no way you're capable of being at all objective.

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

Didn't think ADAM would get a fair review in Nashville. Can't figure out WTH he even bothered to include that REDNECK city on his tour. Johnny Cash was as diverse as anyone & would have LOVED ADAM's version of ROF! It's the lousy author of this article that doesn't GET IT!! ELVIS was shunned by the Grand Ole Opry if I remember correctly. They told ELVIS to "stick to truck driving"!! ..LOL

Re: “Adam Lambert w/Orianthi & Allison Iraheta

Brave, brave man. Wish I could of obtained tickets. I am sure he will put on quite a show. It might not be to everyones taste but the man can sing. Cash was a risk taker in his day, I think he would of appreciated Mr. Lambert's version. Not sure what point your article was trying to make, since the concert is already sold out it's to late to deter people, just needed To increase the number of web hits!?? Beautiful photo.
