    whoever says phoenix can’t play bass is a classic example of what is known as an alien. anyone can see the dude has talent, and don’t diss his name or his ginger hair!

  2. I_love_Linkin_Park on February 28, 2010 at 8:43 am

    Cool!!! Hahaha!😄

  3. William on February 28, 2010 at 1:36 am

    omg trent are u like 8 years old man, jonas brothers really? thats sad, phoenix is a awesome bassist, the best around, don’t bother comparing the jonas brothers to him or any LP member

  4. lolol on February 23, 2010 at 4:08 pm

    Well, don’t all musicians do it anyway?

  5. kitty_87 on February 22, 2010 at 6:01 am

    i don’t agree with trent reznor..phoenix is among the best bassist here..he played really cool in every LP performances..and about that guy in jonas brother..: he is just a kid..haha..don’t compared LP member with that kind of band..they are not good enough to be compared to..besides, Phoenix is really rocks ,dudes!! (^^,)

  6. Olha on February 21, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    Haha!!!!It’s so nice)))

  7. Trent Reznor on February 20, 2010 at 4:56 pm

    I’m surprised this Phoenix makes a living playing the bass. The dude from the jonas brothers can play the bass better than him. Phoenix sucks. He’s a fake. And what kind of name is Phoenix? It’s ridiculous. Fire him and get a real bassist. Or just get Brad to play the bass like he did on Hybrid theory. Please fire that skinhead ginger and hire someone who actually has talent.

  10. Jo_o8 on February 20, 2010 at 1:43 am

    For a minute then I honestly thought it was Phoenix.

  11. Jason on February 18, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    He looks like a poster child for the marijuana march! All that’s missing is some little cartoon balloon coming out of his mouth with a caption like “I’ll smoke to that” or “marijuana, pass it on”

    Oh, I know I’ve mentioned this before… but since there’s a pic of Phoenix here, could you accept the request of a fan and turn his bass up in the final mixes?!

  12. MyWorstEnemy94 on February 18, 2010 at 5:49 pm

    Oh, lovely, Dave…

  13. NoBoDy//\/\/\ on February 18, 2010 at 5:20 pm

  29. Andrew Leezan on February 16, 2010 at 5:19 pm

    Y’ALL SEEM TO LOVE TO TALK MUCH, BUT WHEN IT COMES TO A LIVE CONCERT, Y’ALL DOING SPEECHLESS, YOU CAN’T TELL A WORD, AND SHOUT OUT THOSE WORDS OUTTA YOUR CHEST, JUST TO MAKE A NOISE, YOU JUST STANDING LIKE OAK TREES AND WATCHING, ONCE AFTER LP LIVE CONCERT I COULDN’T TELL A WORD FOR A WEEK, AND I COULDN’T EAT, IT WAS COOL. LP LIVE CONCERTS MAKES ME GO TOTALLY CRAZY.
    I LOVE ALL LP SONGS, AND I’M SURE EVEN SMART ALIENS CAN NEVER COMPOSE SUCH GREAT MUSIC AS LP CAN!

  39. ShenziSixaxis on February 16, 2010 at 12:03 pm

    The picture is lulz worthy.

    Way to keep the author quiet, eh?😄

  40. Thomas Jacob Brablec on February 16, 2010 at 12:00 pm

    HAHA! What a coincidence in names🙂

  43. Mister X on February 16, 2010 at 11:27 am

    I actually read it [http://www.laweekly.com/2010-01-07/news/weed-takes-root/]
    And what amazed me more the “more by David Ferrell” section…Phoenix also seemed the silence memeber of the band, but now I don’t think that anymore.

    Almost 30 report with a heavy weight contacts.

    *Hi-Five* Dave.

    TakeCare Guys. [:

  44. linkinparkette on February 16, 2010 at 10:58 am

    what the heck… me lost

  45. Sintia on February 16, 2010 at 10:54 am

    LOL love p_lane & Nicholas comments. I figure since Phi does hav a bit of a trippin problem on stage (from all the shows I’ve been to)maybe he should cut down a bit b4 gettin on stage. Phoenix, your cut off is 2 before gettin onstage. Plus “meditating” is not considered “warming up”. Say NO to drugs.

  46. jess m on February 16, 2010 at 10:48 am

    hahaha awesome! I wanna ask youu something Mike, how it’s the new album doing? I’m very excited to hear the new music, I’m sure I’ll like it. We will relase soon the February edition of the magazine, I hope you’ll read it, I will share the link here in your page and in your blog. I will try to make a special contact to get an interview with the band. Sounds crazyness, but the magazine is growing more and more, it’s demonstrate it is the best way to link the band and the fans through the press. Greetings for you and your bandmates.
