Surprise! You're Dead!

Mike Patton. Friday night. And his band. Yeah, Brendan, his band.

See photo below.

One of the most amazing things I've ever seen in this regard:

Ever seen a band that was 10 TIMES BETTER than when they were originally around?

Me neither.

And here's the reason:

Mr. Patton has come into his own in the last 12 years. Fuck some Mr. Bungle. I'm talking about Fantomas, Tomahawk, Mike Patton, etc...

I saw this man do things with his voice on Friday night that astonished me. And that's saying something. I've seen a lot of vocalists.

He's 42 years old. That makes me feel good. He made me feel young.

Thanks mikepatton. And Brendan and Mark and Rich.

"Faith No More" should re-record their entire catalog right now. It sounds dated. But what I experienced Friday night was the future...

Maturity, sometimes, rules.

"I think that too many people think too much about my lyrics. I am more a person who works more with the sound of a word than with its meaning. Often I just choose the words because of the rhythm not because of the meaning"
- Mike Patton

Pardon me, I get excited about good things. Here are two...

Cover Star: Candace Fucking Nirvana.
Headlining Band: Faith Fucking No More
