Reunited and It Feels So Good

One night only. Boston's Bank of America Pavillion. June 30th.

That's right, Extreme is back, all original members in tow. I think the setlist may end up looking something like this: More Than Words > Hole Hearted > Jam* > Octopus' Garden > More Than Words reprise > Equipment fizzles, show ends early, people look pissed.

*w/ Hole Hearted teases

Slack Link of the Day: Long-time rock critic Steve Morse writes this in this weekend's Boston Globe:

"I shared bourbon with Keith Richards, followed my nose to track down Bob Marley, and had Bruce Springsteen practically drip sweat on me. In 30 years of covering rock for the Globe, I collected enough stories to last a lifetime. These are a few of my favorites."

Slack Google Searches of the Day: My top five favorite referrals that brought people here over the past 24 hours...

--flaming globes of Sigmund wikipedia
--Kate Moss and Mark Wahlberg first pics
--"mike tirico" harassment
--trey heroin (top two links, fantastic!)
--brett basanez big penis

I love that this is why "brett basanez big penis" draws hits to Slack: "And either ESPN has some penis-loving yucksters manning the headline machine ...Senior quarterback Brett Basanez, the straw that stirs the purple drink (or ..."

Slack Video of the Day: How 'bout a little Them featuring Van Morrison from 1965? Preach on, Young Van, shake that tambourine.

Slack Song of the Day: Eh, why not stick with some Van the Man... Here's the Belfast Cowboy from April 26, 1970 at the Fillmore West. Damn, this is a fantastic 60 minutes of music, give'r a listen.

The local morning radio show that I listen to on my way to work is pretty good friends with Gary Cherone (sp? who cares) and they've been pimping this show since it was announced. Talking it up, telling us how awesome it's gonna be, blah blah blah. Personally, I agree with you on the potential set-list/band walking off stage scenario. This show is going to be laughable at best. Unless they have Cam Neely and Lyndon Byers on stage like they did when they were in the "Hole Hearted" video, I don't even want to think about going. Not that I plan on it anyway.

I remember when their album "Pornograffiti" came out when I was a kid, and I thought my mom would kill me for getting the album because of the title. In retrospect, I am glad I didn't, because I'd be kicking my own ass for buying such crap.

Maybe this Extreme reunion will pave the way for a Mr. Big tour. Or better yet, a Monster Ballads reunion. I can picture a full stadium of lit lighters as all of the bands take the stage to perform a group rendition of "Winds of Change."

Don't fuck around with Winds of Change...that song rawked!

Actually, a Monster Ballads tour would actually be pretty awesome to go see, no? More for the comedy, but that'd be fun as hell I'm thinking. Big hair, ripped jeans.

Cam Neely, what a whore. Extreme videos, Seabass cameos, he's everywhere except the backiotomy clinic.

maybe i can go to this show with gabrielle. that way, maybe when they play "more than words" i can french her again like i did at larsson davis's bar mitzvah. first base...that was hot. maybe now i can play with her boobs, though it would be better if she were still in 6th grade. hey-oh!

"To Be With You" was me and my eigth grade girlfriend's song. It brings back vivid memories of touching my first still-in-bloom mammaries. Memories of mammaries, if you will.

As long as Skid Row could open up with "Youth Gone Wild", I'd be down with the Monster Ballads tour.

I said hey man, there's somethin you oughta know...Park Avenue leads to ...SKID ROW"

you joke with your setlist, BUT i saw extreme open for bon jovi several years ago. and they actually did play more than words twice during their set...

but you left "get the funk out" off the list...

STFU, your* just a jaded vet!!!! When wuz the last time you actually went nuts for an Extreme song that wasn't a super duper bustout, dude? Just becuz I didn't see a pre-hiatus Extreme show doesn't give you headier than thou asshat the right to tell me how to enjoy the music. LOL at you.

*Intentional misuse of your/you're their**

**Ha, that's funny to me.
