As if ripped from the KUPD headlines, another saxophonist has died. This time it was the sax player from The Killers. Police suspect suicide, I say, “not so fast Chief Wiggum!” Last week I blogged about a possible “Sax Stalker” for whom was eliminating these blowers of the horn. Not so crazy now, huh!
What really bothers me is, The Killers are a “newer” rock band and yet they chose to have a saxophone player in the band. As I pointed out last week, if you’re going to have a sax player in your band, your music probably blows (pun intended).
That’s exactly why you don’t hear The Killers on the Big Red Radio, because they blow. Oh sure, their music is fine as background music at the grocery store or dentist’s office. It’s the kind of music you and your Mom can agree on during a long car trip. Why the hell are you traveling with her anyway? You have your own car and she’s totally crazy and don’t give me that crap that she’s cool and you love her. When she has to make a quick stop at the Antique Barn or grab some corn at the Farmer’s Market, you’ll wish you took my advice, especially since you forgot to set the DVR to record Mad Men.
U-Fest is 2 days away folks, guaranteed to be saxophone free!
