Thanks to everyone who came out to see us at Hamilton Lanes on Friday night. I am told that while we played everyone bowled strikes due to how hard we were rocking.

Let me give you what you'd like.

What you want
Well, Bob's not crazy: Now, Dr Pepper thinks it's up to the challenge. The soft drink company says it will give a free can of Dr Pepper to "everyone in America" (excluding ex-GNR members Slash and Buckethead) if "Chinese Democracy" arrives anytime during the calendar year 2008.

Although it turns out that it's not wacky Axl Rose making this promise, it's the soda company itself. In fact, Axl wrote:
We are surprised and very happy to have the support of Dr. Pepper with our album Chinese Democracy as for us this came totally out of the blue. If there is any involvement with this promotion by our record company or others we are unaware of such at this time. And as some of Buckethead's performances are on our album I'll share my Dr. Pepper with him.
Looking into more about why my favorite Sinistar-sampling guitarist isn't getting his own Dr. Pepper, i found this statement from GnR on wikipedia:
During his tenure with the band, Buckethead has been inconsistent and erratic in both his behavior and his commitment, despite being under contract, creating uncertainty and confusion and making it virtually impossible to move forward with recording, rehearsals, and live plans with confidence. His transient lifestyle has made it near impossible for even his closest friends to have nearly any form of communications with him whatsoever.
Tangentially, Ozzy (who sounds much more coherent in print) had this to say about him:
I tried out that Buckethead guy. I met with him and asked him to work with me but only if he got rid of the fucking bucket. So I came back a bit later and he's wearing this green fucking Martian's-hat thing! I said, 'Look, just be yourself'. He told me his name was Brian, so I said that's what I'd call him. He says, 'No one calls me Brian except my mother'. So I said, 'Pretend I'm your mum then!'. I haven't even got out of the room and I'm already playing fucking mind games with the guy. What happens if one day he's gone and there's a note saying, 'I've been beamed up'? Don't get me wrong, he's a great player. He plays like a motherfucker.
I also read that Buckethead put out 28 albums in 2007. He's an interesting guy. Despite this "Brian" cover story, i still think he's either Eddie Van Halen looking for a way to play anonymously or a never-truly-died Randy Rhodes.
I confess i don't know what "spare this show" means, but we've got some new songs and it sounds like the Timid Roosevelts are a good indie band, so come see us and bowl with the band.
Nesson argues that the Digital Theft Deterrence and Copyright Damages Improvement Act of 1999 is unconstitutional because it effectively lets a private group -- the Recording Industry Association of America, or RIAA -- carry out civil enforcement of a criminal law. He also says the music industry group abused the legal process by brandishing the prospects of lengthy and costly lawsuits in an effort to intimidate people into settling cases out of court.
Nesson is best known for defending the man who leaked the Pentagon Papers and for consulting on the case against chemical companies that was depicted in the film "A Civil Action." His challenge against the music labels, made in U.S. District Court in Boston, is one of the most determined attempts to derail the industry's flurry of litigation.
Nesson's argument isn't that song swapping should be legal, of course. Only that the record industry shouldn't have the right to effectively enforce a criminal law.
must have been the devil who changed my mind
rocks for my pillow and sand for my bed
bitch's baby round lady
ring the bells of mercy
Push my foot through the door
Speak of the truth
Jewels in your eyes
