I gotta thanks Jason for the reminder on this one.
Jim Martin is one of my favorite guitarists. As a Faith No More fan across all of their albums, from the Chuck Mosley-sung early works to the Mike Patton-led albums from the late 80s on, I still find Martin's contributions to be critical to the sound of the group. Despite only having a limited number of notable musical endeavors, nearly all being FNM's first 4 albums, Martin distinguished his guitar sound so much that you can hear within seconds whether or not Martin is on the track being played.
Couple that with Roddy Bottum's keys and they created a magical sound together.
I mean, I love the Martin era of FNM so much that we showcased a fantastic old picture of Jim in a Pittsburgh Penguins sweater like six months ago. And there was even the requisite early-90s bikini babe groupie in the pic. Altogether, it might be one of the best pictures of the 90s for someone like me.

We’ve got an update on the story that has captivated the
hockey world since the Pittsburgh newspaper that rhymes with “Must Forget”
first broke it. It seems as though PG reporter Amy Schaarsmith isn’t the pariah
she first appeared to be. She’s just a sensationalist. The REAL hack behind the
non-news that Sidney Crosby didn’t wait in a DMV line for his license renewal...
An emphatic Pittsburgh Penguins CEO has come to the defense of Sidney Crosby after it was reported over the weekend the former MVP was given preferential treatment at a Pittsburgh-area DMV.

If you’re as bored of the Sidney Crosby/DMV talk as we are, you’re probably hoping for something a little different to help the dog days of summer pass a little more quickly. Over the next few weeks, we will be doing a slew of Top Five lists for your perusal.
Since we’re all sick of talking about Crosby, let’s kick things off with the Top Five Pre-Sidney Crosby Playoff Goals...
Bruins fans saw first hand how much of a whiner and complainer Penguins star, Sidney Crosby was in the Eastern Conference Finals. He NEVER gave Boston any credit and NEVER took any blame.
He is just a Whine Connoisseur, a person of informed and discriminating taste when it comes to being a baby.
Can you say ENTITLEMENT?
And it looks like he whined his way to the front of the line...

In an interview with Russian media outlet Sovetsky Sport, Malkin’s father, Vladimir, said that the Stars offered...
There’s a good amount of the general public that would say the DMV is hell on earth. Visiting the local DMV is usually insufferable with a lot of painstaking waiting around all to just get a picture taken and have something updated. It’s the worst.
If you’re one of the best hockey players on the planet and you got to renew your license at the DMV in the city in which you are...
