Did anyone see Damon and Piazza just kind of awkwardly standing on stage with the horrendous band that performed at last night's performance before the home run derby? I wasn't really sure what the objective was with Piazza--the "second drummer"--and Damon--the "second singer who kind of knew the words"? This was one of the more awkward and bizarre things I have seen on television recently.

can't be any worse than this

Music and baseball once again team-up for an all-star double-play tandem as organizers of the “Hot Stove, Cool Music” concert series today unveiled details of Hot Stove, Cool Music: The Fenway Sessions. Pending city approvals, the unique musical revue will take place Saturday evening, July 16, at Fenway Park following the Red Sox’ afternoon game versus the New York Yankees.

The charity fundraiser before a limited audience would feature musical performances by a host of Boston sports, music and entertainment all-stars including Theo Epstein, Peter Gammons, Red Sox pitchers Bronson Arroyo and Lenny DiNardo, and Yankees center fielder Bernie Williams.

Popular Boston musicians also expected to perform include Kay Hanley, The Gentlemen, and Juliana Hatfield.

All proceeds will benefit Epstein’s ‘A Foundation to Be Named Later,’ a new branch of the Red Sox Foundation.

Back on topic. Alter Bridge sucks horribly, imo, and watching Damon and Piazza fiddle about on stage only made it worse.:(:

EDIT - I was waiting for Damon to get TOO rowdy, and do a stage dive onto some unsuspecting grandma.:o:

Do you get it now? PEOPLE DO CARE!

Piazza looked like a stroke with his tight, stone washed jeans and white high tops with the jersey that was down to his knees while playing the air drums.

Piazza looked like an absolute idiot on stage, as did Damon. It looked like Damon tried singing along but didn't know the words. And Piazza kept hitting the cymbals, it was driving me nuts. I'm glad I was at the tavern and the volume was down, but it was still annoying as all hell.

Damn, I really like Alter Bridge too.

You guys know who they are though, right? It's Creed without Scott Stapp (the lead singer). That's not a comparison, it really is the other members of Creed with a new lead singer.

Oh God, that is only going to spark more insults!!! Well to be honest, Creed was one of my favorite bands for awhile, but Stapp turned into an egotistical moron (for the lack of a better word). I enjoy Alter Bridge.

Hmm, ok. I like pretty much everything though. People say they like everything, then say they don't like country and a lot of pop music. Well when I say I like everything, I mean everything. (Well except rap and that MTV crap, but that's not music)

What the hell does Peter Gammons do, play the Pan Flute or something?

King Kaufmann from Salon.com had a great column about this and also "Boomer" Berman yesterday. Here's a quote:


The question was "Is Mike Piazza playing air guitar onstage with some generic alternaclone rock band a new low in baseball-related entertainment, lower even than 'Ed,' that movie with Matt LeBlanc and an animatronic chimp?"

The answer was yes.

The full column is here. (http://www.salon.com/news/sports/col/kaufman/2005/07/12/tuesday/index.html) You need to watch a short ad to get a day pass to Salon if you don't have a subscription.

I got your back SoxFan76. I think Alter Bridge is ok and I did like Creed a lot when they were still around. Right on about Stapp becoming an egotistical moron.

However, Piazza and Damon did look like a couple of dopes up on stage. Especially Piazza. He looked like one of those crazed fans that run up on stage at a concert and kind've "rock out" a bit before the security guards grab him and escort him away.

Don't forget the "white man overbite." It was painful to watch.
