god fucking dammit
what is more surprising, that buzz osbourne is golfing, hanging out with fred durst, or that he's been a douche for quite some time now?
Saw this. Too funny. Now imagine each of them holding a two foot long double-ended dildo. Now that'd be funny.Some should shop dat now.
what's even funnier about this pic is how all the cool kids are freaking out about it. buzzo will always be greater than you, gray, just remember that...
i'm sure he will "always be greater than me"...however you manage to quantify that. i assume you measure his "greatness" by his ability to release the same album over and over again, flogging the dead horse that was the melvins legacy each time. cause, yeah, he's great at that.nice hair buzzo...you look like a fucking retard.
But the gentleman in the blue polo-shirt has tattoos, so has to have some street-cred, right?
oh boy, another snotty chimp with an MP3 blog....
oh boy, another string of anonymous comments.
*sigh*this is taking me backmemories....those were the days
This should be no surprise to anyone. I have no doubt Buzz Osbourne really enjoyed the chance to flick the noses of those he despises the most: Melvins Fans!Seriously, the contempt this band has for their audience may be the most intense I've ever seen. It's not like it just started either - it was always there, but really kicked into high gear with Snivlem 'Prick' - and that was a solid FIFTEEN YEARS AGO.Since that time, I've been to shows where they played half their set distortion-less at 'tap tap' volume (TBH to see them do 'Anaconda' physically rocking out but sonically neutered was pretty memorable). I've seen Buzz on Fox News as a guest commentator (just to piss off the lefty part of his fanbase - I doubt Jello would spend too much time with Buzz if he were a dyed in the wool Neo-Con). I've been harassed by then bassist Mark Deutrom for having an afro 'to copy Buzz' regardless of the fact that I'm Black and that's just what our hair looks like when it's long (and I had rocked it since I was 13. FTR it really doesn't look like Buzz's at all). Point being, these guys hate their fanbase with a passion. Getting to do a little jet-setting on the green with Fred Durst (who, frankly, seems like a nice guy with REALLY bad taste in music) was probably a great way to spend the day and a golden opportunity to confuse and depress another throng of the Melvin Legion.In short - Melvins, love 'em or hate 'em (for me it depends on era), are probably the most fucking PUNK band around in that they're only happy if you're not. Annoying, but commendable.
very provocative dialogue fellas. mars, you make some really valid points. but here's my question to all of you: how many of us are speaking from actual first-hand experiences with these guys, and how many are making judgements on what gets filtered to us through various forms of media and second-hand accounts? seriously, for all we know fred fucking durst might actually be a cool guy to kick it with sometimes. smoke a joint and play some golf. why not? and as far the talk about Melvins despising their audience or just generally sucking now, all i know is they played a really kick ass set last October for only 50 or 60 people here in my shitty town. man they played shit from Bullhead to Nude With Boots (not much of that one thankfully) it was actually quite a varied set with songs from all over their career and i just remember being very impressed. smoked a cigarette and chatted with Jared for a minute. he's always been a really decent guy everytime i've met him. but the point is: they played a kick ass set despite a pitiful turn-out and that just doesn't seem like disdain to me.
i can't believe i said fred durst might be a cool guy. i must've been high. ha. but what if he is though. wouldn't that suck?
I think he probably is. I've met the Melvins a few times (I was the king of noise in ...Maine (hawhaw)... back in the late 80's early 90's) - granted I was 19-20-21 and exactly the type of fan that drove these dudes insane - worshipful and WAY too high. As I recall, these guys are DRUG FREE - I don't recall seeing a beer being drank, much less a joint being smoked.SO, being progenitors of 'Stoner Rock' as well as having spillage from the 'Grunge' era of Kurt Zombies means that they probably have had to deal with a fuck load of stoned, drunk, strung out dumb-asses over the years. Being clean around a bunch of junkies and drunks is fairly frustrating.
luckily i was over any kind of idol worship by the time i met Buzz in '99. and i've never been a stereotypical "dumb stoner". some people can actually smoke pot and then carry on a normal, intelligent conversation. but ya, being around drunks when you are not is VERY annoying. and junkies are a whole nother bag of suck. i'm sure those guys have had their fill of all of em.
But don't Melvins attract drunks and stoners? Of course they do--like a bug lamp--in order to laugh at them. Asshole city these guys are, and that's why I love them, and that's how they make you love them.
