Ghost “Unplugged! Awesome show and a Kazoo too!, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0


The Swedish band “Ghost” seems to have came around at the right time. Back in the 80’s if a band had a “evil” or satanic” feel to it the whole world would have had major issues with these guys. It’s anti catholic or maybe it’s an inverted take on the church but it would have definitely got them in hot water. Judging from the interviews I have read and seen, it’s a gimmick and one that has set them apart from all the other bands these days. The music is borrowed heavily from Blue Oyster Cult, King Diamond and bands of that style. Ghost has even managed to keep almost all of their identities a secret from the general public. A stunt that KISS pulled off back in the seventies. Papa is on vocals and all the other musicians are called “Nameless Ghouls”. Everyone wears a mask to protect their identity. Rumor has it that Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters has donned a mask and sat in with them from time to time too!

“Flea” tweets about the halftime game show, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

It’s been all over the net since The Red Hot Chili Peppers took the stage for one song during the Super Bowl Halftime Pepsi show. Clearly one could tell  TRHCP instruments weren’t plugged in.



So they sort of took a beating for not standing up to “the MAN” and insisting they play a song “live” they wrote 20 something years ago… Some called them sell outs and others called them posers… But in that world of being seen by millions of people at one time what would you do? Argue your point about being “true” to the music or sucking it up and having as much fun as you can with it? I think  TRHCP guys did the right thing. They got their music once again out there in the modern world and not just on classic rock stations. Here is Flea’s tweet. I think it is open and honest and should stop all the “hating”. And obviously they poked “the MAN” in the eye anyway because you can’t fool the fans and they knew it but got away with it and hide it from “the MAN”. Hats off but not the socks to the guys in TRHCP.
