I suppose anyone under 30 wouldn't get it, but you'd be surprised. Some kids these day know more about music from the "old days" than you'd think.

Woe woe. The crue didnt suck. Tommy lee sucks but the crue as a whole rocked
reply

First of all, it's "Whoa! Whoa!" .. and second of all, the only thing Tommy Lee sucked was any part of Pamela Anderson's body that he wanted to when she was still a hottie! The man was SICK on the drums, bro! The only one still alive who may have been able to beat him was Neil Peart. I think the crap that transpired between him and Pammy, the Crue, the party life, and the stupid viral porn video has influenced people into thinking negatively about him. But believe me, I saw him in concert and I heard him on a radio concert show do some of the most insane solos conceivable! The man was just tops in his class! Please don't judge his drumming skills by his personal lifestyle. Maybe he sucks at drumming now, although that's also debatable.Peace

No worries. I'm a drummer too and always liked the crue. Just saw them a month ago and out of the 5 times i seen them it was probably the best i ever seen them and his rotating stage solo over the crowd was freakin awesome. I like the drummer just not the man. Check out "this drummer is at the wrong gig" that friggin guy kills.

You should check out Ginger Baker's solo, the dude from Cream. One of the biggest gripes ppl have with Tommy Lee is that he appears to be more of a showman than an actual drum soloist because of his props and what not. Not to mention his potty mouth!! But Ginger Baker does none of that. His drum solos consist of virtually nothing but drumming, even if he does use the occasional cowbell. lol

The Cure was a band that was well-known in the 80s. So if the dog has a condition that causes him to forget the existence of 80s bands, from his point of view "there is no Cure." Get it? :)

Now it seems everyone is making jokes on the thread trying to tie band names from 2 or 3 decades (or their famous songs) ago into their meme comments! :)

I hope it was trippy, you got your $$$$ worth! Best and worst time with shrooms was at a Dead Show at Chapel Hill,NC, on the campus of U. Of N.C. I thought I was going to be carried out of there. I took enough to get about 8-9 people going! After the intermission I got over it and I was Flying at 30k feet! This had to be 93-94ish? Lol :)
