    Hello Everyone:

    It's been a while since I have visited the Forum and I hope everyone is doing well. I was wondering what you think about "Staind" and "Halestorm"?? I have really gotten into these band over the last couple of years and am looking for some comments from you crazy ass people.

    I am planning to start hanging out here once again so until then Hornz Up!!

    Staind's music is a little pedestrian for my taste, but I really like Aaron Lewis' lyrical themes. I totally get where he is coming from...

    Good to have you back-need more folks from your neck of the woods hanging out here in the forum!

    Their first album was really good, but they are not a band i would have in my everyday life rotation.
    Y&T has that on lock... they are in my ears breakfast , lunch , and dinner.

    I LOVE Staind and I've been listening to them since 2001. The albums I'm most familiar with are Dysfunction, Break the Cycle and 14 Shades of Grey. On Dysfunction, the time of the last song shows it's 21:02 long but the song is actually a normal length song, just over 4 minutes, then a VERY long silence until about 16:20. You hear Aaron walk into a room, set down a glass of wine (that's what it sounds like to me), walk over and pick up a guitar, exhale and put a cigarette out in a metal ashtray, sounds like the wine glass is set down again then he plays the guitar and sings a sweet but sad love song.

    Other bands I got into about that time are Fuel (saw them at the Warfield back then and it was one of the best shows I've seen), Puddle of Mudd, Default, Hoobastank, Disturbed, Linkin Park, and Nickelback (I heard "Leader of Men" on KSJO as a "pay to play" song before they hit it big and I was instantly a fan. They also put on one of the best shows for their Silver Side Up album at the Warfield.). I still love to listen to all of them.

    I really love all kinds of music. From Metallica to Mozart, I'm all over the place.
