That Dr. John tribute to Armstrong looks awesome! Man, I bet that would be a great show!

I can't wait to see Sasha Grey blow Questlove live in person with musical accompaniment.

Questlove should spin VINYL and not his serato laptop. I'm sick and tired of these spacebar tapping DJ's that play shitty sounding MP3s. I heard he has a good record collection too. So what's the deal?

You should probably shut up dude...Questlove painstakingly converts his vinyl to mp3 and preserves his collection. I'm sure his house full of 70,000+ vinyl shits on yours.

He said in an interview that while he was on tour, there was a bus crash and a record he had paid something like $300 for got ruined. So now he mainly uses bootlegs or a serato.

i'm sick and tired of people with no talent complaining about people WITH talent

Fuck laptop DJs. His lazy ass should carry some crates if he wants my respect. And spinning on serato requires ZERO talent. The shut beat matches itself. It's ruined an art form.

How does a record get ruined in a bus crash anyway? Sounds like lies to me... At least the legendary James Murphy still spins records, and is ten times better then any laptop playing hack like this guy.

please tell me sasha grey is the REAL person and not some stupid hipster doofus band that named themselves after her (a la 'dale earnhardt junior').

if the stupid animal name bands wasn't enough, naming bands after living people is about the STUPIDEST trend in "music."

be original numbnuts.

Laptop DJing is sort of like making hummus with Lima beans. It will still satisy your cravings, but it's also slightly unsettling.
