The Peanut is absolutely adorable! How do you not just eat those cheeks up?

enygma

Well, I skipped Pearl Jam closing tonight (last night?) at Lollapalooza. I guess I never really got into them.

ray lee

Pearl Jam? That's awesome MD. They are like one of my ALL time favorite bands. If I could, I'd probably wanna be either a part of Guns N Roses (when they were all still together) or the Japanese band, X-Japan.

The intensity of Guns N Roses is amazing. I mean, I'm not even talking about Welcome to the Jungle. You Could Be Mine is so fuckin' intense sometimes I almost suffocate from singing it. And then you got one of the greatest guitarists playing along side of you named Slash. I mean come on... the other guy is Izzy Stadlin who is a musical genius. Who can forget Duff McKagen? The guy shares the same name as the beer from the Simpsons!

Then we have X-Japan. I don't know if you have heard of them, but they were like the GODS of rock in Japan. Their music is so fuckin awesome and off the hook that I listen to them EVERYDAY for the past 4 years. I don't know Japanese, but I know all the words to their songs. They had some pretty crazy costumes as well. www.x-japan.de for lots of pics and info.

Ok, I just watched that Verizon wireless commercial and it's freaking hilarious! Love when the guy at the end just mutters, "awwwwesome." Where can I find that Bon Scott outfit?

Emily

Can I have some paper-flavored gum?

Ellen

The Peanut is so cute!

Jenny

you know, with your peanut acting like that, she could be a wild rock star of her own someday!

That said, I don't know which rock band I'd wanna front, but it might be a toss up between The Stooges and Talking Heads

GFR

Iggy Pop. Just saw him live at Lollapalooza and it was some of the most intense, primal rock I've ever seen. That guy truly reminds you that humans are animals. Wild, crazy animals. If not Iggy, then Bon Scott.

On a related note, the Daft Punk set at Lolla was equally intense in a totally different way -- insanely danceable robot rock with mind-blowing visuals. If you are a NYC reader of MD and can get tickets to their NYC show then do so without haste. Their tour is probably the concert event of 2007.

Spacecasie

Janis Joplin. Without the dying part.

mr nice guy

for the drinking on stage and generally being one of the best rock'n'roll bands ever: the faces.

for the funk: sly stone

for the sleazy tour bus group sex: motley crue

for the cute bandmates and adoring milfans: dan zanes

for the clothes: andre 3000 and also dan zanes again

for the righteous fury: boots riley

for the sheer badassness: nick cave

Calvin Broadus

I'm going with Carlton Douglas Ridenhour or as he is more familiarly known, Chuck D.

sweatpantsmom

1) Hey- what's wrong with playing with the stapler? I always thought it was a perfectly acceptable toy for an infant. As long as you have a staple remover handy.

2) Gawd, you'd get along with my husband, you 70's rock fiend. He just went and saw Rush at the Hollywood Bowl with some of his like-minded, hoodlum friends.

3) Then he dragged me kicking and screaming to see The English Beat (I don't like anything that doesn't have a funk baseline) But surprise - they were good.

(Geez I've been away long - Peanut looks so much older! Off to read your archives to see what I've missed...)

douglas

My wife makes fun of my iPod listing every time she scrolls though to find her favorite Pavement record. Shessh.

Me? Westerberg is an all time fav, but he got soft, same with Sting. Elvis Costello is a living legend and not ROCK enough (he's still my #1). I like a lot of the mentions but for true living the life of rock 'n roll ... I'm Billy Zoom of "X"

crazymumma

I'm a woman, but it would have to be Neil Young because he is so talented, so versatile and he has provided so many songs for the soundtrack of my life.

However, a woman, it would have to be....hmmm Patti Smith because she just was so much more than a singer on stage. And she slept with Sam Shepard, and that is a glorious idea.

LOD

I'd have to go with Jagger, for the longevity. Fifty years of constant tail.

momomax

jeff buckley.
there's a girl rocker I think I had in mind, but without a doubt, if I could gender jump, it'd be him.

peanut is very cute. does she look more like you or boss lady?

JJ

Ok, MD, this is the first time I have doubted your veracity.

When my daughter draws all over her face with magic marker, it shows. Sometimes for days. Or do you have a magic marker-removal trick you'd like to share?

ThisGuy

This discussion begins and ends with Prince. And I can't believe that Lee Marvin was the only one to truly recognize this.

"Game -- Blouses!"

Luca

I hate to say it but I'm going with Justin Timberlake. The guy has been with Britney Spears, Cameron Diaz. Scarlett Johannson and Jessical Biel. 'Nuff said!

Amy

Johnny Thunders?

That remote control is great - just wondering if there's one for older boys with buttons like: "no more bathroom jokes" "No playing baseball in the junior four apartment" and "find remote."

And I'm talking about 5 and 7 year olds here... not their older counterparts....

Vampdaddy

For me, there are a few choices:

Prince - during the Revolution Era
Siouxsie and the Banshees (after gender re-assignment surgery, no doubt)
Cocteau Twins (ditto, followed by a brush-up on my ability to babbly incoherently)
The Smiths
And, to shake things up -- the Wiggles.

Martha

Been thinking about this all day and I think I would go with Stevie Nicks. I love her 70's hippy style and that raspy voice.

BooMommy

Thom Yorke, of course.

Scott

Billy Joel. Minus the bad driving.

misfithausfrau

Debbie Harry--DUH! That's an easy decision for me as a woman. If I were a dude, it would be much more difficult because Bono and Mick Jagger have such presence. Although I must say that seeing George Clinton with the P-Funk All-Stars about 6 years ago absolutely changed my life.

teufelkindsvater

tough call between smiths-era Morrissey and whichever member of the Sundays that got to sleep with Harriet Wheeler (lead singer) every night :)

Teufelkind's favorite crack-snack is Curious George fruit snacks, which Grandma got him hooked on.

At the slightest crinkle of a mylar foil package he's up and jonesin' for 'frUUUUUU snaxxx' (shouted at the top of his tiny 21 month old lungs.)

Emily

The remote control is killer. And a very happy 318 to you!!!

the mad momma

janis joplin or joan jett please... now if only you could wave a wand and grant us all a wish...

MetroBro

Perry Farrell. Because during the Jones Beach stop of the first Lollapalooza tour, it had been nice and balmy all afternoon, but as the roadies were setting up for the final act, storm clouds gathered and the day turned cold and dark. Then Jane's Addiction came onstage. Perry Farrell walked to the edge of the crowd and raised his arms. There was a crack of thunder, then a shitstorm of rain started coming down just as the band ripped into "Up The Beach." Now that's a rock star!

Backup choices: being a member of the Stones or the Wu-Tang Clan during their respective heydays. (Any member, even Bill Wyman or Masta Killa.) Great music played nightly for adoring audiences, groupies galore, plus the finest "muscle relaxants" money can buy...
