Re: “Singer-Songwriter George Banda Finds Peace in Charlotte

Disagreements, hurts, arguments, fights, and what seems like never seeing eye to eye; still, one thing always remained true amidst of all that, I am proud of you. Always will be, always have.

Re: “Politics as usual with Steve Earle

I'm with MIKEMIKE690. I liked it better when I could assume Steve Earle was a good ol country boy like me whose opinions perfectly matched mine so I didn't have to think when I consumed his work. Music should be about passive consumption on the part of the listener. It's entertainment, not art! What, next you're gonna be telling me that it's a form of personal expression and that personal expression somehow includes politics! Stupid libtard cuck Steve Earle. Why can't he just understand his role as an entertainer, not an individual who has the right to express his opinions under the First Amendment? His opinions inconvenience my own personal ease of listening!

Re: “Christian punks MxPx wrestle with doubt — and greatness

Kinda like Pete Stewart, the lead singer of Grammatrain who is now an atheist and left Christianity behind. A lot of Christian bands I grew up listening to when I was younger are now no longer Christian and have become atheist or agnostic. It is sad really. I understand people change as they get older, but I do not understand someone walking away from Christianity. I am curious to know why some people walk away while others hold on to the faith. Did something so bad happen in their life that they just gave up on God all together? I am not saying that when they were making Christian music that it was not sincere, I just do not understand why someone who has been a long time Christian would give up on God. As an adult, people should and have the right to follow their own path and find their own way of living, because God does not force Himself on anyone. We all have a choice. I pray that those who have turned away will come back to God before it is too late.

Re: “Christian punks MxPx wrestle with doubt — and greatness

I think you guys are jumping to conclusions a bit.I was raised Catholic but I got older and saw more of the world. I believe in God, I believe in being a good person but as an adult I believe it's pretty cocky to think that one particular religion is right and another is wrong. As an adult I've come to the conclusion that God or a higher power is real that that higher power wants you to be a good person and do the right thing and be kind and loving to other people, but that religion itself is a cultural thing. A way for different cultures to explain that higher power in a way that makes sense within their culture. and if I'm wrong I think God would be cool with that, because God is not a petty jerk. He's not banishing people to hell because they grow up in a different country, or different religion with different beliefs, as long as you're a good person I think that God is cool with you.

Re: “Christian punks MxPx wrestle with doubt — and greatness

What I'd like to know is whether Tom and Turn share Mike's new outlook of it they remain committed believers. Mike needs prayer, not condemnation, even if he thinks he's outgrown it.

Re: “Rodgers, Beck and Wilson prove they aren't too old to rock

First time to see Jeff Beck and I wasn't disappointed. Jeff does know his way around a guitar and his drummer is no slouch, either. His drummer has a great reputation in his own right. I would have preferred to have only had one other artist on the bill so Jeff could have played longer, but I'll guess having a couple of other names was to help sell tickets. Ann voice is good and her band was impressive. Doing all but one cover was actually nice. I've always thought Paul Rodgers is a good singer, too, but maybe because it was after Jeff's performance, I was ready to go after a few songs. If Jeff was playing 1:45-2hrs a night, I would have made the trip to Atlanta 3-days later for another round.

Re: “Cover bands — making money off those with talent

Yep! I agree with all of this.

The worst thing is the audience or the fans who associate the stolen song with the performer.

It gets complicated too... Some artists are not cover artists yet they sing songs written by others.

If a cover version is an improvement, then it's difficult to criticise.

Re: “Singer/songwriter Rick Spreitzer Wants to Know Where the Scene Lives

Its so hard to engage audiences that dont have the manners to shut up, put down their phones and listen. Its also disheartening for the musicians. No one is taught to do that anymore. Everybody thinks musicians are at a venue as background music - many times because local music is presented that way by the room and out of habit and has become a local practice by the musicians themselves. Some people listen and enjoy. Most dont. Many times the only people listening are fellow musicians that came out to support their friend. Their is some great musicianship happening all around Charlotte and people are ignoring it. There is money to be made if some venues would figure out that people will come out for an evening of great songwriting and performances- if it is presented as a listing experience. A concert. Not just these folks are here playing while you eat and drink. I would love to see venues turn off the TVs during the music, and teach the audience to have manners, shut up, put down the phone, and listen. Its working for Summit Coffee and OTPH.

Re: “Singer/songwriter Rick Spreitzer Wants to Know Where the Scene Lives

Nicely said Rick! Yes- we need more support from groups like the Folk Society and NSAI etc.. Catawba Coffee in Mt. Holly is a small template for what could be- and should be possible in Charlotte. Id also like to give a shout out to the small- but growing scene at Summit Coffee in Davidson and Old Town Public House (OTPH) in Cornelius.
