EODM vs. GN'R

This is pretty good:

"Guns n' Roses have dumped support band Eagles Of Death Metal from their tour.... According to MTV, at the start of Guns n' Roses slot, [Axl] Rose came out on stage and said, 'So how'd you like the Pigeons Of Shit Metal? Don't worry, that's the last show they're playing with us.'"

But the Ealges of Death Metal's response is even better:

"At first the audience refused to welcome us to the jungle, but by the time we took our final bow, it had become paradise city. Although Axl tried to November rain on our parade, no sweet child o' mine can derail the EODM night train. We say live and let die."

Point to the Eagles of Death Metal! By the way, on the plane back from Seattle, I enjoyed the onboard entertainment that Delta has these days. You can make a playlist from various CDs, and the selection wasn't too bad. One of the songs I chose was "Welcome to the Jungle," and as ever, I was blown away by the introduction. There's also lots of interesting guitar interplay throughout that I hadn't noticed before. You should have a listen on your headphones next time you get a chance.
