Saw Neil Diamond live a few years ago for the first (and only) time. Started collecting his albums when they were albums. He's always been my favorite. Enjoy the show!

Hipsters.

You know what's funny? About every three years or so, the "powers that be" suddenly deem an old-school artist "hipper than hip", and all the trendys jump on the bandwagon.

Don't get me wrong: I like a lot of Diamond's stuff too. Great songs, melodies, lyrics, etc.

But I'd be willing to bet my left nut that some of you would've laughed your ass off two short years ago at the prospect of even OWNING a Neil Diamond CD...much less going to see him live!



I started noticing this with that whole stupid Tony Bennett/MTV thing years ago. Someone in the "funky shoe" set discovers their stepdad's scratchy old album of Bennett, Diamond, Nelson, etc. and suddenly it's THE thing to like.

Weird.

The worst of all? All these idiots who jumped on the Johnny Cash bandwagon about 5 years ago when he released that Rick Rubin-produced acoustic album.

I distinctly remember going "HELLO? He's only been fücking great for about 30-plus years, chowderheads! You think now since YOU dig on him, he's suddenly "cool"? Johnny Cash was cool before most of you could hold a crayon right!"



I don't know...that always seems to strike me weird. We'll all make fun of a particular artist or musicial style for a good decade or so (Manilow, disco, etc.), then suddenly we wake up one days and it's suddenly "cool". Overnight.

How does that happen?

Oh well. Just thinking aloud...

Hey, enjoy the Diamond show. I hear he does put on a really good performance. And he has TONS of great songs.

See, like many out there, I liked him BEFORE "Saving Silverman". That's the difference.

It shouldn't take Jack Black or someone to make somebody cool, you know?



I'm quite sure the audience will be riddled with twenty-something hipsters in various levels of funky shoes/glasses/haircuts who'll be acting as though they're present for the single most important musical event in history.

Idiots. Not you guys...the ones I've described in the previous paragraph. You know the type...

Hey, there's nothing like hearing Cash do covers of Soundgarden's Rusty Cage, man. Priceless.

And on a related note:

Happy birthday, Johnny! I grew up listening to him, so he's one of my all-time favorites!

Yea, Happy Birthday Johnny Cash!

Live at Folsom Prison is a great disk. FUV here has been playing Cash all day and just played him singing Walk the Line in German. Interesting to say the least.

Marty Stuart? Or Nick Lowe, perhaps? One of the famous ones?

Marty Stuart kicks ass too!
