I'm The Chief Of Police, Not The Chief Of The People

by Rainier on Feb. 12, 2010 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

Just got back from the Alice in Chains concert, and it was excellent. There was a cool little band as the opening act, and Jerry Cantrell and his posse rocked for nearly two hours, playing a few songs from the new album, but mostly the greatest hits. No more concerts for a month or two until Faith No More comes to town. That one's going to be "Epic."

I managed to check out the new albums I mentioned yesterday, and the Fear Factory one was the best. Rob Zombie's "Hellbilly Deluxe 2" isn't bad, but it's certainly not his best work.
