Our beloved host of DB, Liam Cassidy is traveling

While Liam is busy traveling the far reaches of the planet, which coincidentally coincides with my absence from the basement to travel the many communities of Alaska coaching HS wrestling, Dennis’ Basement will be on break till our travels are concluded.
But I think it’s only fair to share some emails to keep things flowing….

Liam,
Here’s a great quote from Dave Grohl that makes me think if the PBR

“When I think about kids watching a TV show like American Idol or The Voice, then they think, ‘Oh, OK, that’s how you become a musician, you stand in line for eight fucking hours with 800 people at a convention center and… then you sing your heart out for someone and then they tell you it’s not fuckin’ good enough.’ Can you imagine?”
Dave continues.
“It’s destroying the next generation of musicians! …Musicians should go to a yard sale and buy and old fucking drum set and get in their garage and just suck. And get their friends to come in and they’ll suck, too. And then they’ll fucking start playing and they’ll have the best time they’ve ever had in their lives and then all of a sudden they’ll become Nirvana. Because that’s exactly what happened with Nirvana. Just a bunch of guys that had some shitty old instruments and they got together and started playing some noisy-ass shit, and they became the biggest band in the world. That can happen again! You don’t need a fucking computer or the internet or The Voice or American Idol.”

Dennis,
yeah, and we actually have nice gear, so we’re one step ahead of Nirvana.
the food here is pretty awesome, I had a tuna sandwich the other day that blew my fucking mind. We’re in Rome which is a pretty cool town after about 4 beers and a bottle of wine. The colleseum would have been sweet if we had it to ourselves and we were on shrooms. C’mon Rome, thousands of years and you haven’t put together a good rock scene. I did see a dude finger banging a chick in public in broad daylight, so they have that going for them

Liam,
Jammed with jim and Kyle last night, rocked this joint, we needed it bad dude.
Kyle is leaving for 2 weeks so things will be on the back burner for while.
I can’t think of one good Italian rock band, I got nothing, so no surprise there.. The finger banging thing was cool though. Gonna prob make some deer sausage today with luck, hopefully flick a round..
