Re: “Yes with Syd Arthur at the Ryman, Warped Tour at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds

I have to admit it. I am really disappointed that The Scene didn't cover/write up The Protomen's Warped Tour set.

Re: “Billy Joel with Jon McLaughlin at Bridgestone Arena

It's nice to know that I am not the only one a little sad at at the lack on Vienna last a Friday night. It's my favorite too. Other than that, I was over joyed to be there.

Re: “Brendan Benson and Friends at the Ryman, The Spaceship of the Imagination Christmas Spectacular at The 5 Spot

"I Don't Want To See You Anymore" is on Benson's latest album. Perhaps you are thinking of "Consider Me", which was written by Benson and Monroe for the TV show "Nashville" and was also performed at that concert.

Re: “Southern Ground Music and Food Festival night 2, Blondie and X at the Ryman

You could not have said it better than that first paragraph. I was there in '83 and at the Ryman 30 years later to enjoy a great show. What got me was how both bands had kept it together pretty well but the crowd, myself included, appeared kind of faded. Great example of use it or lose it. :) I wore the t-shirt that Debbie autographed for me when Blondie appeared down at the river front in 2004. Both groups will probably still be making the rounds when they're a hundred years old. Hope I can be there.

Re: “Taylor Swift at Bridgestone Arena, Music City Eats' Petty Fest at War Memorial Auditorium

Hi The Spin (c'mon, give us a name, what are you afraid of?), you changed the title to be more attractive so that you could save this article. Why not make this piece of **** itself more attractive?
When this REVIEW (dare not name it review?) became popular, you will regret it. Daniel Patrick Flynn is just the first hater. Don't worry, hater gonna hate. If there are only haters. You will regret being on page one.
Did you see the movie PRETTY WOMAN? Julia Roberts is PRETTY WOMAN inside and out even though the character was a HOOKER. Changing title to HOOK people doesn't necessarily make it PRETTY.
Hi Nashville Scene, was this written by an intern? Please show some professionalism!!!

Re: “Taylor Swift at Bridgestone Arena, Music City Eats' Petty Fest at War Memorial Auditorium

Let me see...three sold out stadium performances in Nashville. Oh wait a minute...everywhere? Saw a lot of adult men on the 21st too. Maybe you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground. Ever think of that?

Re: “Robyn Hitchcock at Mercy Lounge, Katey Red at The Stone Fox

Also, Pale Blue Eyes and Visions of Johanna are pretty skeletal on the original records, so perhaps that isn't an apt descriptor. Hitchcock played a busker's set, which was a let-down, considering how immense his own oeuvre is and how long he's spent crafting a worldview that pits the individual (or EYE if you want to use Hitchcock's own terminology) against the political and mundane forces that make us yearn for a way out of our limited subjective and selfish experiences; i.e. love. Any mother fucker in Nashville with an acoustic guitar knows how to play a Bob Dylan song. And if the Velvet Underground aren't as widely covered, any mother fucker with a computer and an acoustic guitar can learn the whole discography in an afternoon.

Re: “Robyn Hitchcock at Mercy Lounge, Katey Red at The Stone Fox

Actually, most of the Hitchcock penned songs in the second set came from Eye and not Queen Elvis. Learn your craft you hooligans.

Re: “Muddy Roots Music Festival in Cookeville, Nashville's Dead's Anniversary at Exit/In feat. Oblivians and more

It sounds like it was a great summer festival with a lot of talented new up and coming performers. Next year I would love to hear some performers who offer new Australian music. There are some wonderful new artists coming out of that area this year and it would be a great idea to get them booked now!

Re: “Bonnaroo 2013 at Manchester, Tenn.'s Great Stage Park

>>the outfit was resembling the superstar rock bands of the '70s, Concert for Bangladesh style.<<

Being able to sell out the Exit-In does NOT a "superstar rock band" make...............

Outside of the music junikies, absolutely no one is aware of these guys, howver talented they may be. So let's not quite crown them the equal to George Harrison & Eric Clapton just yet, eh?

Re: “KISS w/Mötley Crüe at Bridgestone Arena, Turbo Fruits record release at Exit/In feat. Ranch Ghost, King Karl and Fox Fun

Being simply into great songwriting and sincere music performances, I have always had a deep disgust for the KISS band and their Halloween'ish costumes and make-up.

Re: “KISS w/Mötley Crüe at Bridgestone Arena, Turbo Fruits record release at Exit/In feat. Ranch Ghost, King Karl and Fox Fun

To Whoever penned the review of the KISS/Motley Crue concert at the Bridgestone Arena in this past Friday's are a complete MORON!!! While I share your views of Motley Crue (they were so much better years ago when I saw them as part of their "GIRLS,GIRLS,GIRLS" tour with Whitesnake), the comments you made about KISS were so retarded and so offensive to me that I nearly punched a hole in the refer to Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer as "STAND-INS" was one of the most insulting statements I have ever read....Eric is a terrifice drummer, and Tommy did a better job singing "Shock Me" than I had ever heard Ace Frehley do...your are idiot who doesn't know his ASS FROM A HOLE IN THE GROUND and whoever hired you and is allowing you to write the sort of crap you wrote in this article should have their head examined....I only hope KISS doesn't see this and refuse to ever come here suck and I am askig all KISS fans in the area who have also seen this article to also let the author know he sucks!!! And by the way, the opening act "The Treatment" was terrific too!!
