Someone Send Grandpa Off to the Home, Please

Alfonso and myself have been agreeing a lot lately. Like when we agree that Steve Vai is a soul-less, empty shell of a guitar player that Frank Zappa wasted time on for what can only be pity. This is another one of those times we agree, but this time it’s REM. Live album? Whyyyyyyyyyyy? I know what no-longer-relevant musicians sound like live already, so I won’t even waste the time to download a pirate copy. The last relevant thing they did was “Bad Day” in ’03. Very much a song of the times with the Iraqi War starting and all. Problem is, that song was actually written for the most part as a reaction to Reagan in ’86 or so. If the shoe fits, wear it; I guess. REM just needs to go to the Home For Rock Bands That Should Have Quit While Ahead. Michael Stipe and Bono should get along smashingly.
