Gut Rumbles

musical tastes

I'm a troglodyte.

I always though that if I was locked up in a jail cell with Rod Stewart, I'd make him my bitch inside a week. Skinny, raspy little fuck. Wimmen loved him, though, but they loved EVERY singer who sounded as if he had his nutsack in a vice with somebody slowly turning the handle back then. (why do you think wimmen LIKED that sound?)

I miss ballsy bands with ballsy front-men.

Elton John? BEJUS!!! I'd have to pay the guards to keep HIM offa ME in jail!!! The same goes for that bald-headed Genesis guy... what's his name?... oh, yeah... "Take a Look at Me Now" and yada, yada... Phil Collins? Was that his name? Who gives a shit?

You know who I think was a gutsy, tear your balls off singer? I know a few:

1) Jim Morrison. ("The Doors.")

2) John Kay. ("Steppenwolf.")

3) John Cougar Mellincamp. (if you don't already know, then fuggataboudit.)

4) Warren Zevon (Just try "Werewolves of London")

5) Bob Seeger ("Down On Main Street" is one of the meanest songs ever written. I LOVE that lead guitar part.)

I'm tired, so I quit right here. But YOU tell ME any girly-boy singer who can compete with those five. I'll tell you to kiss my Cracker ass.

I know what's good.


FFS Acid,

How 'bout Robert Plant and Ronnie Van Zant?

C'mon now.

Did you forget George Thorogood?
I mean as part of your list, not the girly men list.

Well hell, you almost live on the coast, you are not far from Statesboro (Allman Brothers?) , what do you drink?, my brother lives in Atlanta, don't mess with Texas!

You having prison sex with Rod Stewart is not something I want floating around in my image bank. BTW Thorogood was an inexcusable exclusion.

Steven Tyler, Aerosmith

John "I want John Fuckface Kerry to win" Mellonhead?

Are you out of your ever-lovin' mind?

First, ugly gun pics, now you're trying to claim John "I have no fucking idea what my name is" Cougar is a bad-ass?

One word: John Fogerty

(shoot, that's two words ....) Well, anyway that's the best damn voice there ever was in rock and roll.

Thorogood would be on my list too, but "Bad to the Bone" just sucked badly. Gotta listen to his good stuff, like "Gear Jammer", "Get a Haircut and get a Real Job", and "One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer"

For flat-out, balls-to-the-wall rock 'n' roll, I
can't top your top 5 for HARD-driving STAYING
power that even Roscoe would have to

Morrison was sex incarnate. Zevon died
before his time. Seeger helped me get laid
so many times that I still get a chubb hearing
"Turn the Page." Last time Stewart rocked
was with Faces. Mellencamp always stood
up for the underdog--ALWAYS! And there
will never be another Steppenwolf to stick
it to the man like they did.

Fuck all these poseurs. Let them quibble
over how many douche-bag, lame-ass,
sissy singers can hold half a candle to your
top 5. You done good!

Don't forget Joe Cocker, that voice can take the rust off the bumper of a 59 Chevy.

Posted by: Dan on December 15, 2004 11:32 PM

T-Bone Walker, Muddy Waters, Elmore James, Howlin' Wolf...

OK, not the type of music you're looking for, but there are a couple of current singers with balls:

James Hetfield, Metallica
LaJon Witherspoon, Sevendust

Decidedly NOT girly-boys, however, so your challenge goes unanswered. Although Johnny Lang might qualify as a girly-boy (skinny dude from North Dakota) with a helluva voice, and Mike Patton--when he's singing normally--can out-sing any human male on the planet (ask Michele from A Small Victory). Probably a bit too weird for Acidman's taste though (hell, he is for mine sometimes...).

Some great picks, Acidman, but Zevon really sticks out. exactly a year ago, i loaded my pickup with my few possessions, and hit the trail from Fairbanks AK to Cincinnati. I must have played Zevon's last CD dozens of times on the way. what a classic, and a true loss to music.

Posted by: John Cunningham on December 16, 2004 12:59 AM

Hell Rob, you missed out ol' Lowell George of Little Feat. Now there was one mother of a voice. Atlanta was his favourite city too. Another great loss to music and the soundtrack to many of my own (miss)adventures. Keep on rawkin!

Iggy Pop
Ted Nugent
Marilyn Manson (just kidding)

I love music as much as the next guy...but you men want all this balls to wall stuff..don't you care what some of us girls do like...the kind of music that makes us peel our panties...don't these girly men rockers get some kudos for getting some of you laid? I have a proud collection of what you all might consider girly men and I have yet to hear a complaint when I play it on my stereo naked as a jay-bird because the old man hates it but if he plays his cards right and don't complain...well he gets treated A-OKAY...ya feelin' me on this?

Delbert McClinton

Any list without Johnny Cash is no list at all.

Posted by: Mr. Lion on December 16, 2004 01:02 PM

How bout a ballsy chick who sounds like a guy? Bonnie Tyler on "It's a Heartache".

Posted by: rivlax on December 16, 2004 02:53 PM

What about Paul Rodgers of Free and Bad Company. Excellent pipes. Also The singer from Atlanta Rhythm Section.

Zevon was blessed beyond belief, genius songwriter and brilliant voice. Miss him.

I also like the vocals of Scott Weiland of STP and Velvet Revolver his vocals are rich. Chris Cornell late of Soundgarden has monster pipes.

Posted by: DaneBramage on December 16, 2004 03:03 PM

Also Acidman you might want to check out the band "Monster Magnet" hard driving rock with insane acid laced lyrics. "Third Eye Landslide" and "Space Lord" "Drug Farm"

Things are looking good from where I sit
In the United States of Who gives a shit.

Got a knife in my back and a hole in my arm
Drivin' the Tractor on the Drug Farm

I think you'll get a grin from their stuff.

Posted by: DaneBramage on December 16, 2004 03:13 PM

Just have to add my favorite Lowell George. With the best song about a fat man in the bathtub moaning.
