Sounds like Jackie Chiles. All you have to add is "preposterous" :-D

I beg to differ...

ACDC and Led Zep were killer live...


Hmm.. Maybe I should rephrase it...

Something like...

You know they're playing live for sure if they sound like shit. All bands have their off days.


;-D very true... but some bands just sound like shit anyways...

haha Agreed. Some bands are great live, others not. I guess it depends on the venue, and the style of music.
Last concert I was at was Guster up at Marquette in this small student union, only about 150 people. It was absolutely outstanding, they were great in concert. I'm curious to hear what they sound like in a big stadium, if they get teh same emotion across to their audience and such.

I'm guessing you haven't been to many concerts because this statement is so untrue.Maybe some of these pop acts that have no real talent don't sing live but I've never seen a concert that wasn't 100% live...ever.

Couldn't agree more. I see a lot of shows, and if anyone was ever faking it I'd be headed straight for the doors, with a quick stop-off to demand my money back. :-t


A lot of no talent asshat pop superstar diva whatevers lip sync live. As in Estefan, Spears, J-Lo, etc, and now apparently Ashlee. I never understood why anyone liked Ashlee to begin with though, she's ugly and usually in this field looks are important. I guess because she's Jessica's sister.

Yay! Now I get to make a Milli Vanilli joke, but instead insert Ashlee Simpson!



If Ashlee Simpson fell in the forest, would somebody else make a sound?

There's some truth to this. If you'd shelled out 10 or 12 of your hard-earned bucks to see Aerosmith in 79 and 80 like I did, you'd almost wish Tyler had lip-synched. At least he didn't blame the band.

Yeah, that is the only good thing. If you ask me, Ashlee is a "but-her-face."

I just found this little gem...Now her father says Ashlee forgot to take her Zantac before the performance which is why she stopped singing... :-B :-B :-B

AP via Yahoo! News wrote:NEW YORK - If Ashlee Simpson (news)'s stomach was upset Saturday night, imagine how she's feeling now. Busted for a "Saturday Night Live" lip-synch gone awry, her manager-father said Monday his 19-year-old daughter used the extra help because acid reflux disease had made her voice hoarse.

"Just like any artist in America, she has a backing track that she pushes so you don't have to hear her croak through a song on national television," Joe Simpson told Ryan Seacrest on Los Angeles radio station KIIS-FM. "No one wants to hear that."

He insisted it would be Ashlee's live voice alone during her appearance on NBC's "Radio Music Awards" Monday night.

And he said she's never used the extra help onstage before.

"The whole situation was a bummer," Ashlee Simpson said in an interview on MTV's "Total Request Live."

Simpson had performed her hit single "Pieces of Me" without incident earlier on "SNL." When she came back a second time, her band started playing and the first lines of her singing "Pieces of Me" could be heard again.

She was holding her microphone at her waist at the time. Simpson looked momentarily confused as the band plowed ahead with the song and the vocal was quickly silenced.

A flustered Simpson made some exaggerated hopping dance moves, then walked off the stage.

She told "TRL" that she and her band didn't know what to do. "I think all of us went into a state of shock," she said.

The incident exposed what many consider an obvious secret: that some singers who appear onstage aren't singing live at all, or at least have their voices augmented by backing tracks. And it's happened before on "Saturday Night Live," too, executive producer Lorne Michaels told the Associated Press.

"She was mortified and in her dressing room, but (producer) Marci (Klein) got her to come out for goodnights and explained that it wasn't the end of the world. It wasn't her fault," Michaels told AP Radio.

"Every artist that I know in this business has had vocal problems at some time — from Celine on down," said Joe Simpson, also father of Jessica Simpson (news). "So you've got to do what you've got to do."

He said it was his decision to use the tapes when it became apparent that acid reflux disease had swollen Ashlee's vocal cords. After consulting Wayne Newton (news)'s doctor, she received a cortisone shot to get her ready for the "Radio Music Awards," he said.

It was the band's drummer who pushed the wrong button onstage, he said.

Said Michaels: "If she were a more seasoned performer then I think that she would've taken charge and said, `No, let's start this over again.'"

To add to Ashlee's indignity Monday, eBay.com was auctioning off her private cell phone number, which it said had been inadvertently, and briefly, posted on her Web site.
