“Thumbs Up to Vetri for a great effort! Introducing healthier foods at an earlier age is beneficial in establishing healthier eating habits overall. Eating junk food can develop into a bad habit of too much fat, salt and sugar. I don't know about the scientific evidence, but I recall hearing on the news about an ingredient in fast foods that leaves one craving for more, almost like something addictive.
“I don't watch Glee, so I don't know anything about Michele's talent, but I thought the dress was great, not too extreme, but still accentuating her assets and beauty. She seems to have a very likeable personality. I thought it was funny when she was talking about her family traditions and getting tattos.
I was tuned into Letterman to watch Joe Bonamassa. Thumbs up to the David Letterman for inviting Bonamassa on the show. He is my favorite musician since the Bealtles and Led Zeppelin.”

“The Beatles were the soundtrack of my youth, it was fantastic to hear them on Mad Men. Music is subjective and reflects one's personal taste. Personally, I think the Beatles have been the most influential band ever and their music will live on forever. I recently went to see the tribute band Rain perform, I was impressed with how many young fans were there.
So what do we think ~ will Don Draper be capable of staying faithful all season?”

I am also a HUGE Joe Bonamassa fan. I originally posted because of your comment."A monster on guitar"? Really? Please stop. That is insulting to real guitarists." MAYBE Joe is technically a better guitar player than Dan, but you are100% wrong to imply that Dan's talent on guitar would insult real guitarists, especially since you classify Joe as a real guitarist.
These are quotes from Joe that he posted on the Joe Bonamassa forum from 2011.

The Black Keys are awesome.... Its very raw and unpolished but there is genius there. Its all in the delivery... Very good record to check is Brothers...
"Joe Bonamassa2011-08-10 00:48:33-thread about Gary Clark, Jr. saving the blues
Ive heard some chatter about Gary and think he is excellent.. For my money if there has to be a savior it will be Dan Auerbach and the The Black Keys... I am completely enamored with their sound. Its sophisticated and ramshackle at the same time. Its complex blues with an edge and depth to the lyric. I am a recent convert but I think they are ace. Gary reminds me of that school of playing and singing.
I REST MY CASE!! Comparing these guys guitar skills is like comparing apples and oranges, both sweet, but different.”

We all know music is subjective, just as beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
I don't think Dan's talent would insult any 'real guitarists'. IMHO I read all of those lists in all of the guitar & music magazines that rate the top guitarists. When you pick apart the talent of Jimi Hendrix over or under Jeff Beck, it gets subjective. Same with Satriani, Vai, Derek Trucks, Clapton, Page, Slash, etc. etc.
Also, just because Dan's style isn't of a shredder, doesn't mean he's not a 'real guitarist'. IMO, a real guitarist knows exactly how many notes to play. (David Gilmour comes to mind) Dan is wise beyond his years, he doesn't have to shred or show off how fast he can move his fingers all over the frets to prove he is extraordinarily talented!! Dan doesn't need to perform long guitar solos either to prove he is a monster on guitar.
Just my 2 cents on your comment. Agreed, GREAT BAND!!”

“I saw the Black Keys for the first time Saturday night in Philadelphia. I'm a 55 year old baby boomer. The Black Keys are the BEST band to hit my record collection since 2004, when I uncovered Joe Bonamassa and before JB, it was the 70's. These guys are the real deal, TOTALLY AWESOME and TRULY TALENTED.
I'm not a gear head, but I know what I like when I hear it. The Black Keys vintage sound is raw, honest & unique. It might be that sound that takes me back to the British Invasion which got me hooked on music in the first place, I'm not sure. The lyrics are extremely creative. An English college professor once spoke about the ability of Bob Dylan to say sooooo much in a very few words; Dan & Patrick totally have it going on!
I'm not sure where I first heard of the BK, it was either on the Joe Bonamassa forum (he's a HUGE fan) or from my current college student, who saw them for the 5th time this weekend. A couple Christmases ago we watched one of the BK DVD's he had requested.
Best of Luck to the Black Keys!! With all the lack luster, non-talent out there being shoved down the throats of the youth and winning Grammys for it; it is a breath of fresh air to hear the talent of the Black Keys.
Keep keepin' it real Dan & Patrick & stay true to yourself!”
“"My Valentine" strikes me as a very raw and honest love song, I love its simplistic sincerity. Beatle music has been a big part of my life since the late 60's. Life is a journey, sometimes its path takes us back to our roots.
As Ringo does, flashing everyone the peace sign! ♥”

“I was thrilled to discover Beth Hart through Joe Bonamassa, which is a gift that keeps on giving! Beth's vocals are amazing; she sings with such emotion & passion. She is the real deal and so talented! Congrats to Beth on being invited to Crossroads to sing/perform with Jeff Beck.
“I guess ESPN felt they had to apologize under pressure, BUT I don't feel Brent Musberger did anything wrong. My husband and two college sons also expressed very nice comments about the quarterback's girlfriend. I think its wrong to make Mr. Musberger out to be creepy because he can still recognize & appreciate a beautiful woman, even if he is aging and in his 70's.
Personally, I think Brent was very natural and did a fantastic job of entertaining the audience during a blowout game.”

“I demand that ESPN and other networks (and the NFL) apologize for the existence, and repeated lurid focus on, NFL cheerleaders who were obviously selected because of their potentially unique insights into solving the players' long-term brain injuries.
There is nothing new here; actually quite innocent considering what I just described. The announcers were bored, as was everyone else, and went off into a post-middle age version of Jonas Brothers land.”

“Nothing morally wrong just inappropriate for his job. Networks obviously show attractive women during games but the commentators should be focusing on the game and not rating the players girlfriends.”
Anyone that likes tennis may appreciate this little film about the life of a tennis ball...in reality, this tennis ball can represent the aging decline of an athlete or a rock star.. My son made this for an Intro to Film class assignment. I may be partial but I thought it was creative!

“Beautiful song, I can't wait for this CD release! Every new album has Joe stepping out of his comfort zone, I've heard a few other songs that are also fantastic. "Running from the spotlight"...I don't think you can Joe. :-)
“For what its worth in reference to comments about Drew's mom; I recall reading an article in ESPN magazine or SI after the New Orleans Super bowl win about Drew Brees. Drew had been estranged from his mom over her using his celebrity factor to advance one of her causes. They resolved issues before she passed away. I live in NJ and former Eagle Jon Runyan won a Republican seat as a representative in Congress this past November. Jon is the 4th former NFL player to do so.”
“Its a good time to be a Philadelphia sports fan!! And it seems like we've had a good week against New York; acquiring Cliff Lee, the Flyers beat the Islanders 4-1 and beating the Giants on their turf. Life is good.”
“You talkin' to me? I'm dazed and confused, match Werth's offer? If so, because the Phils didn't want to spend that kind of money for Werth. The decisions to come and go were made by these two players for different reasons.
I'm old fashion at heart, looking back, baseball was great when it wasn't such big business and players didn't move around... But that is living in the past.”
“Contrary to our bad rap that goes back to snowballing Santa Claus, Philadelphia sports fans are very passionate!!! Personally, I think the media jumps on every little thing a Philly sports fan does to keep the drama brewing. When a fan thinks you are not playing up to your potential, they let you know. For the most part, I am a stand by your man kinda' fan. Everytime Brad Lidge stepped on the mound during his rough times, I made myself repeat over and over again, without Brad Lidge, the Phillies would NOT have won the World Series!! I, for one, will never forget that, even though collectively as Phillie fans we could have filed a class action lawsuit on Brad for giving us all a heart attack!! :-)”

“Thank you.The Santa Claus issue is old.I'm a Philly sports fan and proud of it.We love our teams(like all other sports fans)and want them to succeed.Sure we have pinheads but so does other everyone else.It seems like ours get magnified.Glad Lee's back.Allow me to be your first fan.”
“What's the difference between Cliff Lee and Jayson Werth? Cliff Lee made the decIsion with his head and his heart and Jayson made the decision with his wallet. I'm saying this as a diehard Jayson Werth fan, as Charlie Manuel put it, the Clint Eastwood of baseball. My heart skipped a beat everytime Jayson stepped up to the plate, so yeah, I admit, I'm a little emotional. :-) So, "Take the Money and Run."
I love and respect Cliff Lee a little more today. Cliff understands something that Jayson has yet to realize.
"MONEY CAN'T BUY YOU LOVE"”

“As a Phillies fan I have one question, why didn't the Phillies match the offer? Kinda undermines your thinking!”

“Extremely versatile. I wouldn't be surprised if Joe eventually dips into jazz and country, Joe just recorded something with Vince Gill. (hoping its not too twangy :-) Who knows, Joe may do more duets with lady rockers, like Bonnie Raitt, Ana Popovic, Joanne Shaw, Shannon Curfman and his girlfriend Sandi Thom. I'm just stressing, when you are this talented the possibilities are endless! As a fan, its been a blast watching Joe's rising star.”

“I became an instant fan of Joe Bonamassa in 2004 when I listened to his first two CD's. My husband uncovered Joe after reading an article in GuitarOne that featured Joe as one of the top ten rising Guitar Heroes. To sum him up in a sentence, Joe Bonamassa is the BEST thing to happen to my record collection since the 70's. Joe is not only incredibly talented, he is also a very kind and humble guy. Thumbs Up Brian for recognizing the real deal!”

“Also proving his versatility. Check out Black Country Communion's new album. He can roll with the rockers as well as he plays the blues.”
