the band behind the band

Lmao "good behavior"? Didn't realize sleeping with multiple women who were already in relationships and trying to talk to an underage girl and then after finding out she's underage saying if only you were older, constitutes as good behavior. At least I acknowledge when someone I like fucks up

The thing here is that it was confirmed by Ed himself that he and Ellie Goulding were not together during the time she and Niall played around, and Ed and Niall are fairly good friends, so. Back the fuck up.

Also, since we’re talking about Melissa, as well, I presume, I don’t know any specifics, honestly. I didn’t pay any attention to her. I can’t tell you if she told Niall she was in a relationship because I don’t know, and, for that matter, neither do you so stop acting like you do, lmao.

And the underage girl he was talking to? Okay, so — he didn’t know she was underage because she didn’t look it (which is very possible because I looked 18 when I was 12), and after she told him how old she was he said something along the lines of ‘Oh, I was going to buy you a drink but never mind’ and backed off. He left her alone, and that was that. I don’t see anything wrong with that; do you?

Anyway, why are you hiding behind the anon button if you aren’t ashamed of admitting your fave fucks up? Is it because you know everything that’s happened with Niall doesn’t hold a candle to Zayn’s shit? Hmm?


On this day in music history: December 31, 1969 - Jimi Hendrix debuts his new band Band Of Gypsys at the Fillmore East in New York City. The blues rock trio consists of Hendrix on guitar and vocals along with drummer Buddy Miles and bassist Billy Cox (the latter being an army buddy of Hendrix’s whom he jammed with while both were in the service). The band is formed in the wake of the demise of The Experience with Cox having played with Jimi at Woodstock in August of 1969. Band Of Gypsys are booked to play four shows spread over two nights at the legendary New York City venue which are videotaped and recorded. Playing mostly original material, recordings from the New Years Eve performances surface as the album “Band Of Gypsys” released by Capitol Records in March 1970, in order to fulfill an earlier contractual agreement Hendrix had with the label. In spite of excellent on stage chemistry between the musicians, the bands’ time together is short lived. The Band Of Gypsys implodes only a month later after a gig at Madison Square Garden is aborted two songs into the performance, when Hendrix gets into a verbal altercation with a woman in the audience, and then abruptly leaves the stage.

On this day in music history: November 25, 1984 - The single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” by Band Aid is recorded. Written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure, the one off benefit single for famine relief in Africa is a huge worldwide hit. Boomtown Rats leader Bob Geldof sees a BBC news report on the plight of famine stricken people in the African nation of Ethiopia. Deeply moved by what he has seen, Geldof enlists the help of Midge Ure of Ultravox, along with over thirty British and US pop stars including Paul Young, Boy George, George Michael, Sting, Bono, Duran Duran, Bananarama, members of Kool & The Gang and Jody Watley to help produce a record with all of the earnings being donated to famine relief. Recorded at producer Trevor Horn’s SARM West Studios in Notting Hill, London, the track is recorded in one twenty four hour long marathon recording session. The single is released in the UK on November 29, 1984 (US release date is on December 3, 1984), with Mercury Records in the UK and Columbia Records in the US donating pressing and distribution of the single for free. Famed pop artist Sir Peter Blake (“Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”) designs the singles’ iconic sleeve artwork. It quickly sets a record as the best selling single in history in UK record history, selling over 3.7 million copies in only two weeks. By 1989, its worldwide sales will reach over 11.8 million copies sold, holding the sales record until 1997 when it is surpassed by Elton John’s “Candle In The Wind 1997”. “Christmas” spends five weeks at number one on the UK singles chart beginning on December 15, 1984, and peaking at number thirteen on the Billboard Top 200 on December 29, 1984, earning millions for Ethiopian famine relief. A thirty minute long documentary on the making of the landmark single titled “Do They Know It’s Christmas? - The Story Of The Official Band Aid Video” will be released on home video by Polygram Music Video in the UK and Vestron Video in the US (VHS, Beta, and eight inch laserdisc). The song is re-recorded in 1989 (as Band Aid II), 2004 (as Band Aid 20), and a for a third time in 2014 (Band Aid 30) with the latest recording raising funds for the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.


On this day in music history: January 12, 1974 - “The Joker” by the Steve Miller Band hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 1 week. Written by Steve Miller, it is the first chart topping single for the Milwaukee, WI born guitarist. It is the title track to the bands’ eighth studio album. Miller bases the song around New Orleans songwriter and producer Allen Toussaint’s song “Soul Sister”, also referencing The Clovers 1954 rhythm & blues classic “Lovey Dovey”, and his own earlier songs “Space Cowboy”, “Gangster Of Love” and “Enter Maurice”. Early copies of the single credit only Steve Miller as the writer of “The Joker”, but later pressings are amended to include “Lovey Dovey” co-writers Eddie Curtis and Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun. Released in September of 1973, “The Joker” quickly becomes a smash. Entering the Hot 100 at #86 on October 20, 1973, it climbs to the top the chart twelve weeks later. It is Miller’s first million selling single in the US, and belatedly hits number one on the UK singles chart in 1990 when it is re-released after being used for an advertising campaign for Levi’s blue jeans. “The Joker” is certified Gold in the US by the RIAA.

So, remember when the Battle Lovers got sassed by the students they were trying to rescue the first time they had to fight in front of a group of people?

Um, excuse me, sweater boy… Are you or any of your companions really in a position to say that when only a few moments earlier you all were literally about to kill each other over chopsticks?

Hmmmmm… I’m just saying beggars can’t be choosers here. Let these third-rate idols save your sorry asses and at least show them the common courtesy of not openly criticizing their schtick. They already know they sound dumb.


On this day in music history: January 5, 1980 - “Please Don’t Go” by KC & The Sunshine Band hits #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for 1 week. Written by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch, it is the fifth and final chart topping single for the R&B/Disco band from Hialeah, FL. Marking a dramatic shift away from their classic uptempo dance sound, the lush ballad is issued as the second single from the bands’ sixth album “Do You Wanna Go Party?”. Released in July of 1979, the single begins a very slow ascent up the chart. Entering the Hot 100 at #86 on August 25, 1979, it will climb to the top of the chart nineteen weeks later.  Taking nearly five months to the reach the summit, it makes “Please” one of the slowest climbing singles to ever reach the top of the Billboard Hot 100. “Please Don’t Go” is also the first number one single of the 1980’s, temporarily interrupting Rupert Holmes’ three week run at the top with “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)”. “Please Don’t Go” becomes a hit again in 1992, when it is covered by British dance pop group K.W.S. (#1 UK Pop, #6 US Pop), changing the pop ballad to an uptempo dance track.
