“…hey there…yeah you. C’mon down, it’s comfy…”
PRESS AND BLOG PICKS“The Bon Jovi guitarist opens up to THR about his new label, personal struggles, how Jon Bon Jovi factors into the equation, plus his thoughts on singing competitions — and Adam Lambert.” This Adam Lambert kid? I think he’s really, really good. [American Idol] builds stars and that excites me. I do not have the time to give to a show like that. Maybe down the road at some point I would consider it. I would be good at it. I have been a mentor on X Factor all over the world and Simon Cowell is a friend of mine. I have been a mentor on Idol in many different countries. I had Chris Daughtry out on the road with us. It’s been a fun show to watch with my daughter and I really get off on it and there is a lot of great talent that comes off that show…..read more “DJ: Lambert song a ‘blatant ripoff'” Wolfgang Gartner, the DJ-producer, on Monday criticized Adam Lambert’s song “Never Close Our Eyes” for sounding structurally similar to DJ-producer Deadmau5’s megahit “Ghosts N Stuff.” Gartner wrote on Twitter: “wow this Adam Lambert song on the radio ‘close my eyes’ is a completely blatant ripoff of Ghosts n Stuff. Chords, vocal melody, everything.” Then Gartner asked Deadmau5 on Twitter, “sound familiar?” Deadmau5 (who headlines Saturday at club XS) responded, “*sigh* whatevs.” But Deadmau5 guessed Lambert didn’t “produce” the song: “They just pay the kid to show up and sing.” Gartner agreed. To be fair, Deadmau5’s “Ghosts N Stuff” is influential and an electronic masterwork, while Lambert’s pop song is different enough to be neither. I sent a request for comment from Lambert via Twitter, but no response came as of my deadline. deadmau5- Ghosts N Stuff – listen and decide for yourself. To me it sounds like a piece of MJ music repeated ad infinitum. ~X
