The Flaming Lips trash Clapton, Dylan
Between writing songs about magic wands and sexual robots, the Flaming Lips apparently have time to shit-talk anybody who's not them. In a recent audio interview with Rolling Stone, Lips members Steven Drozd and Wayne Coyne went to town on some of rock's greatest legends, including Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan. And we're not talking about Thom Yorke calling the industry "a bunch of retards", this is some intense stuff.
"Most recently, the first in a series of Cream reunion shows took place here, which prompts a joke from Lips multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd. The joke: "What do coffee and Eric Clapton have in common?"
But of course: Both suck without cream."
"I mean, have you seen Dylan lately? You can't recognize a single song he plays anymore. It's like you order a pizza and Dylan brings you a pile of dog food, and you're like, 'What's this? I ordered pizza.' And Dylan says, 'This is my version of a pizza.' "
For you, Grand Wizard Coyne, I will post some homophobic kid's response to someone telling him he'd like your band if he liked Ween:
"the flaming lips suck my ass! their singer is a whinny fag, and while the music is pretty good with beck-ish sound effects and groovy melodies, they lack any creativeness that could ever put them into a fair comparison with the musical gods that are ween.
if i caught a ween show with the flaming lips, ween had better play their traditional 3-4 hours, or i'm going to get up on stage and beat the living shit out the flaming lips faggoty-assed singer."
