Like many wonderful things that people Love in Europe that Eouropeans in Italy, Spain, Francce and all the countries in Europe, there are things that are not present in the United States of America, like certain types of music, food, fashion, habits whatever.
As with the Negroni Coaktail, Campari, and Aperol Spritz in Italy, Mortadella, and Burata, I started drinking NEGRONI 'S a good 25 years ahead of most present day Americans, who have just recently discovered this great Italian Cocktail in the past few years, I first started drinking Campari and the Negroni Cocktail way back in the Summer of 1985 when I made my first trip to Europe, traveling in Italy, The SOuth of France, and Spain. That is a Summer I will never forget, when I went to the Birthday Parties of FELINI and BOY GEORGE in the same week when I was to take off for Rome, Italy on Saturday June 15, 1985 ..They actually had two parties for Boy George, one at the Palladium on 14th Street and another later in the evening at AREA down on Hudson Street in Tribeca. That same week, I attened Frederico Felini 's 60th Birthday Party at AREA with my buddy Bobby Matinez. We were hanging out with Felini and the legendary Italian Director told Bobby he wanted to put him in his next movie. It never happened, but it was quite cool to be hanging out with Felini (how many people can say that).
Anyway, I was having such a great time that week, althoough I was dying to go to Italy, I almost didn't want to go. Also that same week, Madonna did a few shows at Madison Square Garden a few weeks before she was to marry Sean Penn . At the opening night of Madonna 's Concerts at The Garden I was hanging out with her and my buddy Bobby in the Private Party for Madonna in the Michael Todd Room at the Palladium. Later that evening when we were leaving the Palladium, a number of Papparazzi starting taking pictures of Bobby and Madonna togehter. Bobby ran afer a photogpraher and started beating him up.
Anyway it was quite a week, hanging out with: FELLINI , MADONNA and Bobby and going to Boy George;s Birthday Party. Yes I almost didn't want to go to Italy, I was having so much Fun at home in New York 's East Village, it was quite a week, and one I have never forgotten.
WIthout Questio, this is one of the Coolest Most Beautiful Music Videos ever made.
We've got Aerosmith, featuring lead singer Steven Tyler singing Jaded, and lead guitarist Joe Perry, and the stunningly Beautiful Mila Kunis, inside the gorgeous French Rococco Los Angeles Theater, all makes for a stunning video.
It doesn't hurt that it's a great song written by lead singer Steven Tyler and Marti Frederiksen, and expertly executed by the band. Yes a great song, unlike most of the Crappy so-called music that the music industry has been putting out for the past 20 years or so. Not this one. Jaded has structure, melody, and rhythm all necessary elements to great music that the so-called music makers of these days lack and completely. To put it mildly, the so-called musicians these days just "Suck," Plain and simply. Thank God for bands like Aerosmith, bands who know how to make music. Well, though they are still around, they are of another era, beginning in the 70s, when you would not have gone anywhere if your music wasn't at least good. These days, you can make Shit Music, and the people with no taste what-so-ever will support it, and musical artist making SHitty Music can become Millionaires. "What is this World Coming to?" Thank God for the Great music of the 50s, 60s, 70s, and even 1980s. And Thank You Aerosmith for "Ja Ja Ja Jaded" We Love it!
