I agree with you Treasure Moment.
I don't know what the big deal with this band is? totally non musical in my opinion more noise than skill and poise.
It's a bit sad Rog and Bri attaching themselves to these mediocre bands to remain in the spotlight.
Bri & Rog when you wake up and smell the coffee you were parts of the greatest Rock Band ever so no need to kiss ass with all these C-lebrity bands and those cunts off X-factor that women who crucified wwtlf tut tut.......

Nobody said the Foo Fighters are reinventing the wheel, but they are far from being a "C-lebrity band."  They are one of the few bands to have survived the 90s and are still going strong today.  They are definitely one of the better bands out there today.  The spirit of 70s rock is alive in them even though their sound isn't dated to sound like it.

Furthermore, listen to Cyborg off Brian's album Another World.  Taylor Hawkins is great drummer, and the Foo Fighters are a great band.

I actually like Foo Fighters quite a bit...been a fan of theirs since the debut album. Dave Grohl is one talented mofo, as is Taylor Hawkins. I think Taylor's new album, with or without Brian and Roger is a fantastic piece of work. It's my opinion, and I'm entitled to it. Don't like it? Sorry! :)

The Foo Fighters are among my top 3 favorite rock bands.  You will automatically dislike any band if you aren't familiar with their music catalogue.  Just look at how some people percieve Queen.  Some think they're just a bunch of tossers.  I would encourage anyone who dislikes the Foo Fighters to give them a second chance too.

How's that record deal coming, TM?  There are thousands of indie labels who pick up a wide diversity of music, so no using the "record labels only pick crap artists" line.

we havent searched anything and dont even know if its such a good idea to have a record deal. As ive said 100 times before selling millions of albums isnt an indication of how talented an artist is, just look at all the talentless rappers, britney, Mr transvestite gaga etc.

How do you expect to promote yourself to the public then?  By posting demos of incomplete songs on youtube and saying that nearly everyone else sucks?

First off, the Foo Fighters are one of the best true rock acts out there today. They're a throwback band that mixes some of everything, and they do it well. They also put on some of the best straightforward rock shows you're going to find, and yes, they are talented musicians.

Second, TM, I listened to your demos...and yes, the Foos are better. Way better. But that's just my opinion--and the opinion of everyone on Queenzone. We're just a few hundred music enthusiasts scattered around the four corners of the planet. What the heck do we know?

Sir GH: i havent even started promoting and contacting lables yet, the problem has always been the singer, we have a lot of quality music but never managed to find a singer who is capable of singing to it but we ll solve that. the music is still better than all the mainstream bands combined.

thunderbold: you have to be out of your mind to say that a shitty simple band who plays noise is better than TM but its your opinion and thats ok, in reality though they are nowhere TMs level in any way.

No, by writing songs that say nearly everyone else sucks and posting videos of Amir singing it through that Microphone he's got.  Thats why you and I have day jobs and TM has demos and incomplete songs coming out the wahzoo.

I can't believe the arrogance of these Treasure Moment guys. I'll never understand what makes them think anyone would want to give them any kind of chance when all they do is talk about how any music that isn't theirs (or Queen's) is terrible... Having heaps of songs with no way to get them out is definitely no fun, but they don't deserve an outlet. Thankfully for the rest of us, their flippant, hateful, self-important attitude will keep them down.

Dan: its not arrogance, its the truth. Im not saying all bands besides queen suck but all the mainstream bands now DO stuck and music in general is absolute garbage these days, thats a fact. That these people constantly attack me doesnt make it better, if they acted like intelligent human beings i would have more respect for them but they dont.

What do you define as a "fact" ?  And what is your criteria for what makes "garbage" ?  Is your criteria the criteria that everyone must follow?  Who put you in charge of what everyone else should think about music?

the worst of the facts here is that max believes this all ..... make no mistake as i knew him in real life and he was worse than this he would be in the band van and be receiving from milidrag some favors while they would talk to how "great" the band is and the music, he would talk on and on then
