Steve For The Deaf

Oioi, it’s Milo from Stuff And That back again for another MMM (or MILO’S MOSHPIT MUTINY AS IT WILL NOW BE KNOWN), which is literally what Steve does but a lil’ more sexually promiscuous. Of course, special thanks to Steve as well for suffering *this fool* gladly. Or reluctantly…

So, regrettably there will be limited options for some of my favourite bands, like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Porcupine Tree, and The Mars Volta,…Read more Top Fifteen Heavy Songs – Reuben

Audioslave (Eponymous, 2002) Review

It's got the influence from old time classic rock and Rage Against the Machine - which it shares the presence of the guitar genius Tom Morello with.
