No, to both questions.
I will graciously shoulder the guilt of everyone here who has a system costing more than 1000.00 u.s.d-no need to thank me, I can bear it, just pack it well and send it to me. You W I L L feel better for it![sure you will]
An audio site attacking or mocking how a audio enthusiast enjoys the same interests as the ones who attack.....nice!
You know what's true rebellion? Creating art, earning a pile of money along the way and living your life on your own terms....and needing nobody else to approve.
As far as "selling out" that's such a cliché, the man made punk music when he was young and probably naive.... People evolve and mature. I for one would enjoy both his and his systems company.
I kind'a miss Pandovski.
Yeah, me too. He was quick witted and understood the concept of humility. And offered a refreshing perspective from across the pond. That's valuable stuff.
Tom B and tomlinmgt, make that 3 of us. He was a hoot.
Yup. We had our disagreements on some things, but his sense of humor always gave me a good chuckle.
Where the hell did he go?
Banned, I think.
He was landed a part in Banned Of Brothers last I heard.
Not funny, but.....very funny.
It was his own fault - that he got banned - he was warned and continued unabated.
Over something as mundane as friggin' Bose. Geez, it's almost sad irony that a guy like him walked into that old, broken up and dusty web and got consumed by a slow, clumsy spider.
It was more than that and that is all I will say on that topic.
Guys; people get banned here because of repeated rules violations - repeated after several warnings. Pretty simple and it's all right here;
Also, please note this from that page;
Something to keep in mind too is that you do not see all that has transpired in these circumstances. So let's end the discussion on banned members and get back to the subject of this thread - OK?
Thanks Billfort for all you and the other mods do. Keeps this place the way it needs to be.
Sorry for the diversion...was only noting that he brought about his own demise and it was a bit of shame.
I wonder what Ian MacKaye's setup looks like. :scratch2:
That's funny... Rollins uses Wilson Alexandrias... Anybody rich enough to afford those is CLEARLY not very-punk... Not anymore at least.
Think about the kind of instruments/gear the classic punk bands used... Sid Vicious was lucky if his amp was even turned on, but even he was not beyond getting a little corrupted, at least by his days in France (Was it France?), but cmon... Wilson Frigging Alexandrias???
Plenty of punks have done well later in life. Mr. Brett owns Epitaph (surely > $300k). I'd bet Greg Graffin and Tim Armstrong own that much in guitars. Iggy isn't exactly at the soup kitchen or panhandling for spare change. I'm sure there are plenty of other examples. Henry has been successful and responsible with his money (enough) and can afford it. I don't begrudge him any of it.
Fact is punk "was" great, but it is a philosophy of youth. As we age we realize concepts like nihilism just don't work in civilized society so you either get with the program or get left behind. Successful people tend to be responsible people and vice versa. I don't see people like Henry who have figured that out as sell outs when they enjoy the fruits of their work or take the opportunities they are presented with to earn a living. I view people like Jello who haven't changed with pity, not to be admired. Besides a $300k stereo system does not equal consumerism, a new $300k system every year does.
And those speakers are butt ugly.
