It seems that Axl Rose hates Google Glass almost as much as he hates karaoke. The frontman for one of the best rock bands of all time, Guns N’ Roses got all huffy about the Red Hot Chili Peppers performance at the Super Bowl last week, in which they didn’t even play their instruments. I’ll admit, the performance felt rushed and a bit staged. But Anthony Kiedis and Co. showed up looking like they hadn’t aged a day since the early 90’s. Axl? Well, let’s just say he’s showing his age.
So, back to Axl. It turns out that Flea admitted that the RHCP had indeed not played their instruments at the Super Bowl, with the only thing live being Kiedis’ voice. So yeah, that is a little lame, but what else do you expect from the Super Bowl?
Axl Rose posted an Op-Ed of sorts on Billboard, where he spouts some seriously funny stuff. Here’s the quote for ya, it’s pretty amazing:
Maybe they all had microchips installed in their asses and not only pick up the frequencies of their instruments but get Direct TV and the internet too! Like Google Glass… Google Ass! They could be “Scientific Pioneers!” Like Buzz Aldrin and shit! True (pardon the pun)ASS-tro-nots!
Haha, Google Ass! Ass-tro-nots! Nice one, Rose.
Here’s Rose’s weird old guy rant below, where he discusses Flea’s ass transmitter, which apparently picks up DirecTV as well as transmitting his bass sounds to the speakers.
In The Name Of Science
In regard to the internet’s “no wireless” controversy regarding the Red Hot Chili Peppers Superbowl performance as reported on ESPN…
I enjoyed the show and I’ve no idea what the real story is nor would I want to suggest or imply anyone wasn’t actually performing or that what they were playing wasn’t what we actually heard. That said I feel it’s important to always look on the positive side of things and to give the benefit of doubt.
So consider that maybe sometime before their actual performance that rather than use a guitar cord or standard wireless, that in the name of science and for all mankind Flea courageously had a newly invented breakthrough in microchip technology installed in his ass that picked up the frequencies of his bass and transmitted them to his amplifier.
Maybe they all had microchips installed in their asses and not only pick up the frequencies of their instruments but get Direct TV and the internet too! Like Google Glass… Google Ass! They could be “Scientific Pioneers!” Like Buzz Aldrin and shit! True (pardon the pun)ASS-tro-nots! Or like Superbowl crash test dummies for bands kinda like those cars that drive themselves!
And besides… If the band wasn’t really playing or wireless or whatever and Anthony was really singing they may have set a new world record for the largest karaoke audience ever! Awesome!
So relax and show some pride! This is probably all just Google finding new ways to enrich our lives with the selfless volunteering of the Peppers and the ever ongoing creative process of true innovation or perhaps a new lounge bar record of super magnificent proportions and a new pinnacle of human achievement not seen since the sign language guy in South Africa!
God Bless America, the Peppers n’ technology… PN’T!
Yes Mr. Rose, ass transmitters indeed.
As for Google Ass, seems like Rose could benefit from that technology. It’ll alert him when he’s wet his pants and he needs to change his diaper. Yowza!
