I don't understand the cult people vow to musicians.

I mean, yeah, they're entertaining, but I'd rather worship a scientist or a politician than a musician.

I'm pretty sure not a lot of you know that tomorrow will be Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday...

Have you been living under a rock for 16 years?

We need activities for tom morello day. How about we have a "who can make the most annoying sound on guitar" competition! (Don't take this the wrong way. I'm a huge tom morello fan.)

EDIT: just checked wikipedia. His birthday is may 30. Why is this tom morello day?

Tom Morello doesn't really deserve a day commemorating him. He's not even legendary.

Now let's celebrate 17/07 as Gordian Knot day, which is actually a legend.


If he's so legendary, how come I've never heard of him?

Knot could never be undone. Prophecy said that he who could undo the knot would rule the known world. Alexander the Great thought "hmmm... doesn't say anything about untying the knot" and slashes it in half- thereby undoing the knot. Goes on to rule most of the known world.

It could have happened- it's perfectly possible, but there is no proof, therefore constituting a legend.

So he's legendary because he cut a rope? Sounds kind of stupid to me. All he did was just think outside the box a little.

Alexander the Great isn't legendary. The story of the Gordian Knot is a legend.


Why should he be commemorated though? I fail to see what makes this story so important.

No, actually i've been living in a drainage ditch, playing my crappy Squier, watching naughty things on my laptop, and listening to Metallica. Why do you ask?

In all seriousness, there are much better guitarists we could be celebrating today. For no apparent reason, we could celebrate Randy Rhoads, Eric Johnson, Kirk Hammett, Joe Satriani, and countless others. Morello doesn't deserve to be among that list.

I was making the point that Tom Morello is not, in fact, legendary, and then proposed that we celebrate something completely irrelevant instead, albeit an actual legend. You kind of missed that point by... *gets 3 people to stretch their arms out* That much.

Creativity is more important than anything else when playing guitar, which is why Slash is among the list of great guitar players, and that's why Morello is on that list also.

With good reason. Slash is a spectacular lead guitarist and an amazing soloist to boot.

I can understand why some would think Morello should be on the list, for making some downright weird sounds with the guitar, and while I admire his creativity and ability to apply those weird sounds to songwriting, I still find RatM to be a quite repetitive and boring listening experience compared to other artists of the genre.

I didn't say that he should be commemorated. TS did.

Neither of those people/legends should be commemorated though. They didn't really do/establish anything important.

Are you kidding me are you saying Alexander the Great didn't do anything important?

edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_the_great here look at this he was undefeated in battle and upon his death conquered most of the known world to the greeks.
