    Well that's exactly what I was reffering to. The only reason I'm learning this is to get a good mark, that's it, I know it's wrong but I have no interest in this subject or whatsoever. But if It's going to help me to achieve better results in school, and learning it represents no problem to me, I might as well just do it. What I'm trying to say is that in some way,I'm forced into studying it.
    Totally understand what you're saying. It's unfortunate that you feel that way though. Learning something, even if you don't like it, should be interesting and enjoyable. Sad really.

    So, just some personal opinion on some music. Musicians and groups I'm a little over and don't generally like.

    Bruce Springsteen - Nice guy and all but personally I'm not a fan. I don't mind some of his music but I can typically live without hearing any of his music. Doesn't help that my brother is a fan and we don't get along that well but that's not the reason for not liking his music. I just find it boring. I tend to turn the station or the radio off when he's on.

    Bon Jovi - Have to say I've never been a big fan. I really tried too. They've become stale, all their stuff sounds the same. Add in the semi Christian rock part of it and it's a no go for me. I turn them off now too.

    Radio Head - I didn't mind some of their earlier stuff and I don't mind some of the newer stuff but I'm starting to find them a touch boring now. They're one of those groups you either like or don't like. I've put them in my fine to hear but can live without.

    Guns n Roses - (sorry Rose640) I've been hearing them too much on the radio and I have to say I'm bored now. They were fine when I was younger but now I find their music very dated sounding. They're ok when I'm in the mood but lately I haven't been so they've been shelfed. I can appreciate what they did to the music but I always found them overrated.

    Part of the reason I bring this stuff up is that I've been listening to the radio, probably a mistake but these groups constantly come on and they're not my favourites at all. It's a sad reality that there really isn't any new rock these days. :/

    I'm with you on your takes on these particular bands. Heh, the way they call Bruce Springsteen "the Boss".. I used to say "well he's not the boss of me!" lol

    Agree on G&R! IMO Slash is the #1 over-rated guitarist in music today! I saw him and his solo band open up for someone (can't remember exactly which headline show it was - there's been so many!) a year or two ago, and I was totally uninspired and unimpressed. All of his solos are the same blues pentatonic scales played over and over again and all sound the same. He just got lucky with G&R where they came up with a couple catchy hits and now everyone thinks he's a guitar god smh...

    Now Ritchie Sambora (SP?) (Bon Jovi's guitarist) is actually really good! Look him up on YouTube some of his solo stuff is amazing. The Bon Jovi hits from the late 80's were ok, but like you said, they've pretty much run their course. Without Ritchie, he's just another bland pop singer.

    RadioHead, yeah, their old stuff is ok I guess. I'm the same way... Wouldn't go out of my way. I've never heard anything that'd make me jump up and run out and buy their record.

    I was up pretty late last night playing DOOM. The single player campaign is really good, but I started playing the multiplayer last night and got hooked. The classic deathmatch has returned! I love the old school Quake III Arena vibe it has.

    All in all, it's a well rounded game. The included "SnapMap" editor is the icing on the cake. I have a lot of experience with map building and level editing, so this is right up my alley!

    Morning! (thinks of Monty Python...)

    I never understood 'The Boss' title for Bruce.

    I think I knew Richie was a good guitarist but the music has gone bland big time.

    With Radio Head I don't think I could buy an album but I like a couple of songs here and there. Creep is by far my favourite.

    I have to make time.. it's what they call "burning a candle at both ends"... I also somehow make time to play, compose, and record music. I'm really wanting to find a local drummer and start playing as a band again like the good old days.

    Pubs are different in the EU compared to the US. They're not just for drinking alcohol.

    Just like a coffee shops in Amsterdam aren't for drinking coffee...

    I like the 3D Touch feature of the camera app. I just press right into whichever mode I want to shoot in (photo, video, slo-mo, or selfie) btw, to get the 240fps slo-mo, you've got to enable it in settings/photo & camera. Along with the 4K video.

    To be honest I've never heard any of Springsteen's orr Radio Head's stuff. I just wasn't interested in them, that's all.

    About Bon Jovi. I like Living on a prayer, Runaway and the one I like the most and find the best is Bed of roses. Everything else is either boring or not rock at all. I especially hate Bad medicine, such horrible song.

    Now shame on you for not liking GnR! No seriously, I get you. You rated them by listening to radio and even here where folks don't listen to foreign music, they've heard a lot from GnR. It's either Sweet child o mine, November rain or Knocking on heaven's door. They are my number one, but I haven't listened to them for some time now. I'm hoping for the new album. Anything that's better than Chinese Democracy is more than welcome. At least that's not hard to achieve.

    As I said, you either like Bruce or you don't. I'm in the don't camp.

    Radiohead is similar to Bruce, you're either into it or not.

    Bon Jovi is and always have been a pop rock band pretending to be 'cool'. Bon Jovi's looks always helped them when he was younger and still some of the ladies like him now. Their music was never inspiring to me at all.

    I saw GnR live so I wasn't impressed then. Not sure who set up their sound system but it was pretty crap. I've listened to their first three albums and that was pretty much enough for me. I don't like Axl's voice at all. People used to go on and on about how good it was and I am honestly baffled by that.

    I like distinct vocal artists, Axl is not one of those.

    Once again, you're right. His vocals aren't the best out there, but it may have something to do with the fact that they've toured alot. I know they had around 100 shows, or at least close to that in year, don't know which one was it, but yes, they had so much live shows one afte another and that left some marks for sure.
