I Miss You When Something Really
Good Happens Because You’re The One
I Want To Share It With.. I Miss U
When Something Is Troubling Me..
Because You’re The Only One Who
Understands Me..
I Miss You When I
Laugh And Cry Because I Know That You’re
The One Who Makes My Laughter Grow
& My Tears Disappear.
Happy New Year 2014

The Most Important Lesson I've Learned in 10+ Years

Gavin Harrison

the drummer for Porcupine Tree, is so good, it's scary. His interpretation of time and the way he manipulates rhythms has placed him on the pedestal of percussionists. Though his English prog band, Porcupine Tree, doesn't resonate with the larger audience-at-large that may be listening to Rush or Dream Theater, they nonetheless have created a small but faithful following who consistently buy their records and attend their shows. In the drummer's world, however, Harrison is always on the "Best of" lists in drummer's magazines and on percussion websites. He's played with King Crimson who have recently reformed. Here, he talks about who he is as a player and how he sees the world around him.

This isn't necessarily a project you would have predicted for either Billie Joe Armstrong or Norah Jones - basically we're talking about possibly the most well-known modern punk vocalist and Ravi Shankar's daughter (who is a famous jazz and pop singer-songwriter in her own right). Together they have managed to record the country-tinged album originally recorded by crooners, the Everly Brothers. At the time the Everly Brothers were becoming famous using the type of vocal harmony that would especially be popularized in the '60s, most notably by the Beatles. The decision by Billie Joe and Norah to record the album seems to have originated with Billie Joe Armstrong feeling pulled to the album and listening to it frequently. He chose Norah to collaborate with after they had each sang with Stevie Wonder live, in an unrelated capacity. Doing a side by side comparison between the original album and "Foreverly" will show that it is a fairly accurate re-creation, though the chemistry between the vocalists

Jason Newsted: 'A Lot of People Can Play but It Doesn't Mean They're Cool'

Back in December 2012, ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted revealed that he was putting together a band of his own. He had been part of Flotsam and Jetsam, Voivod, Govt. Mule - and of course Metallica - but for the first time he was going to front his own band as singer and bass player. About a month later, he released "Metal," a four-song EP that featured guitarist Jessie Farnsworth and drummer Jesus Mendez Jr. Eight months after the EP dropped, Newsted put out "Heavy Metal Music," a full-length album bearing the moniker Newsted. Joined by Staind guitarist Mike Mushok, the record represented the first time Newsted had not only written every note of music but was the lead singer on all the tracks.

12 Weirdest Song Titles in Rock

Rock and metal musicians can sometimes take a sudden turn to the weird zone, or just never leave such a zone in the first place. Weird song titles have been out there for quite some time now and as a guaranteed attention grabber, have occasionally been in a way misused or forced for the sake of just being weird. But sometimes, they actually deliver a cool message in a unique way. Anyhow, we'll just focus on the weird titles for now. Check out some of the weird rock song titles we've rounded up below and feel free to join the discussion in the comments section. Frank Zappa - "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?" The number of weird Frank Zappa songs is great enough to compile a list of its own, but for now we'll single out the "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?" tune. A part of Frank's 1979 rock opera "Joe's Garage," the song is a part of the ridiculous story we highly recommend checking out.

Why You Should Perform, Regardless of Skill Level

There's a good chance that if you're fairly new at playing the guitar, singing or both, that you're afraid to play songs in front of people; whether at an open mic night or even just in front of your friends. This comes from an irrational fear of rejection that you should squash immediately. That kind of social fear is left over from when we were a primitive species living in small tribes where you pretty much only knew people in your tribe and maybe some from neighboring tribes. If your ancestors got socially rejected in that setting, it could mean they wouldn't find a mate or they would get booted from their tribe all together. You on the other hand, have probably met more people in school last year or at your last job than your ancestors met throughout their entire lives living in these tribes. Unfortunately for us, our species spent the vast majority of its existence living this way and we haven't outgrown that fear yet.

Spark Mini Booster

a compact, more straightforward, slightly less powerful cousin of TC Electronic's Spark Booster - is incredibly easy to operate. A single, sturdy volume knob can be set for everything from a minimal boost all the way to a respectable 20dB boost. A single footswitch turns on the Spark Mini Booster and is indicated by a bright white LED light. The coolest aspect of using the Spark is PrimeTime, a feature that automatically detects whether you want latch switching in classic stompbox fashion, or momentary switching that lasts only as long as you hold down the footswitch. This latter mode is handy for boosting short passages, which is especially nice when singing - there is no need to keep an eye on the status light. And for passages when I wanted to boost in and out multiple times, PrimeTime's auto-engage sense was a godsend. It accurately "knew" when I wanted it to latch, or toggle momentarily. Wow! // 9

Andreas Kisser: 'Cavalera Brothers Turned Their Back on Sepultura'

As one of the biggest metal bands of all time, Sepultura's been going strong for three decades, selling over 20 million records worldwide and soon releasing their 13th studio effort, "The Mediator Between Head and Hands Must Be the Heart." But the lineup the band will likely be most remembered for is the one featuring frontman Max Cavalera and his brother Igor on drums. Guitarist Andreas Kisser recently addressed the brothers' departure from the band, saying that the Cavaleras have turned their back on Sepultura. "For Sepultura fans, there are many Sepulturas in their head,” Kisser told MTV Iggy. "It's not only because Max and Igor [left]. If you [compare] the albums that we did together, from 'Schizophrenia' to 'Roots,' they are totally different bands - but the same lineup. We all change; we all grow up."

Dynamics and Intensity in Metal

I've heard quite a few people complain about metal's lack of "dynamics" in the traditional sense of the word, because modern mastering tends to entail smashing a mix's volume peaks into oblivion so we can sneak out just a tiny bit more overall volume, because apparently everyone wants the loudest damn album ever made. But metal can still be written in a way that FEELS dynamic, even if we can't rely on changing volume levels to convey this sense. Instead, it has to be done through increasing or decreasing the level of intensity in our arrangements. In quick summary, more intensity means higher pitches, faster tempos, more notes, and denser arrangement, while less intensity means lower pitches, slower tempos, fewer notes, and sparser arrangements. In terms of individual instrumentation tricks, look at tremolo picking, blast beats, double kick runs, and heavy usage of cymbals to increase intensity.

Here's a selection from the comment thread, but we want to thank all of you for taking the time to comment.

Miley Cyrus has really had a weird year while playing out a major identity crisis in public while trying to further separate herself from her Hannah Montana image. This identity crisis plays out in her music as well, on "Bangerz." The album was preceded by the singles "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball." While both songs are actually fairly solid pop, they received much more attention for their suggestive content. The deluxe version of the album that I am reviewing has 16 tracks and clocks in at a minute or so over an hour. The standard version has 13 tracks and clocks in at about 50 minutes.
