I had no idea what all the congrats were about so I checked the new AP out and lo and behold:



















Thanks to any of you guys who voted for me, you're the best <3

p.s. I haven't forgot about doing the guitar tab, I've just had an insane couple of months, so hopefully when we hit the road again in a week or so, I can knock it out.

Congrats!
=] You totally deserved it.
The picture they put in is pretty bad ass.

We were actually discussing having an afi rock band today - we then decided it would be way to difficult because all the guitar parts would be really super fast and you would have to use your fingers and toes to reach all the strings. And the drums would require all limbs to be in motion plus a second person just for the bass petal. The bass would be super intense as well requiring not only both hands but your vocal chords to make up some of the noises. And then the singing parts would not only be crazy hard - you would be required to dance as well -thus potentially causing bodily harm if you get to close to a metal box or something.

Therefore. They have had to settle for not-as-awesome bands =/. At least they put a few afi songs on there =]

Sorry for the rant..

Glass Spider Webs said...

I hope the other message went through or this is not going to make sense.

Eric would like to add to the afi rock band statement that not only would bass points be added up by how well you are playing - the intensity of your facial expression also is factored in.

congrates XD i knew that you were the best,hell i bet that you you are way better than some of the japanese guitarists that i know like miyavi or this one japanese guitarist that i talk to his name is shinichiro ishihara he use to be in other bands like this one that i like called tsukiko amano(idk if have heard of the japanese guitarist that i have just spoken about)but yeah to me that you are better than them ._.

Congratulations!! That's hilarious, looking in a magazine and then finding out you were voted best at something.

Emi said...

It's hardly a shock you were announced the best guitar player! :)

StraightToHell said...

Congrats! I don't usually get AP anymore unless someone I like is on the cover, so I usually miss out on these little articles. You deserve it, as i'm sure you know ;)

You should do another Q & A blog. Those were bitchin'. I can't belief I just said that...Haha.

P.S. Have you seen the movie Monster Squad? Tell me you have! It's a classic ;)

Somebody filmed On the Arrow in Toronto (when you guys played there on November 10th), so I'm watching it and laughing because you can totally hear me in it. Screaming. 'Cuz that's how I roll.

Cassii (again) said...

Oh, and Adam's face is really funny, he's just glaring like "O my God, Davey, I hate you, I have to play shakers, and just shake shake the WHOLE time, damn, I should have learned to play guitar because then I wouldn't be playing shakers right now..."

Natasha Bloodshed-- NATALIE!!! -- I am very proud of all that you have done for A.F.I.. Of course, Im sure ten million people have already said it. So in my time, devouring souls and delivering them to Satan in exchange of writing songs that no one will hear, you should know that A.F.I. as a whole, have inspired me. I want to change the music world and put the meaning punk rock summercamp back in warped tour. You are all so lucky, youv accomplished dreams I dont even know where to begin with, and I hope to have an impact on someone the way that you, and A.F.I. have impacted me. For now Im just a weird sophomore reading blogs and learning keyboard notes to play guitar parts. But thats okay. Thank you so much for giving me this dream, and I see you and I hear the music, I see the years go by and I have this strong admiration for you. Only then can I really prove to you that you have lived a life worth living. :) -I RAMBLE, SO FUCKING WHAT-

Haha sweet! Did you ever imagine that one day you would have your face in magazines as a beginning guitarist? Cuz this is sweet man.

Aw congrats, Jade! You truly are the greatest!

You totally deserve the recognition!

good your just gunna hit the road and do the tab things awesome thanks...i have a question for ya jade do you watch or have ever watched the wwe/wwf/ecw/smackdown/raw???
just asking..XD

Ericka said...

wooohoo! congrats! i'm glad you won!

Christy Crawley said...

Psh. Way to go Jade. You get a big award like that, and you don't even know. XD

By the way. YOUR BLOG IS EVIL.
It has tried to take over my computer multiple times. I'm serious. I've got a pretty nice computer, and it runs very smoothly.
But EVERY time I exit out of your blog. It pops up again. And again. And it will keep popping up, so quickly that you don't even have time to exit out of them.

Soon there are 40 or 50 across the screen. I have to shut down my computer.

I didn't think you were serious about that world domination thing. XD

Anonymous said...

To be honest, I don't vote because I think the ppl I like should know they're the best w/o that, but I shrieked with delight that other ppl besides me know the amazing talent of Jade E. Puget. You have been an inspiration to me for so long and I want to thank you. I hope I can meet you next time you are in Chicago. Much respect always, Kelly

ZoƩ Aimee said...

Amazing and so deserved.
Congratulations Jade <3

Jonathan said...

I totally agree with AP! I won tickets for the 91x's Dysfunctional Family Dinner down in San Diego last month but you didn't come out for the interview =[ But you're still near and dear to my heart! You're the reason why I bought a synthesizer and guitar; you're a genius!

Jamekae said...

Tremendous! Greatly looking forward to picking up the guitar and having a go at whichever song you've picked. From Crash Love I've mainly been jamming out to Too Late for Gods and Torch Song, it'd be great to read these tabs to see how far off I am.

Eagerly awaiting Beautiful Thieves' music video, it's been a painful wait, but I feel it'll all be worthwhile in the end.

I love your performance.

You were chosen by the editors and not part of the Readers poll.

frantic1 said...

Congrats but you were chosen by the AP editors and not by fan voting. You deserve the recognition.

lezah said...

Awesome! You won! Congratulations and you're welcome. :)

I was going to suggest a tab (in the post you made last time) but I decided not to because I'm quite indecisive. Plus, all the guitar bits are amazing, so I'd beat myself up for not choosing the other songs if I only picked one.

11am_street said...

Yes, yes congrats! And yes, what they say is completely true. You are an excellent guitarist!

That's a steller face you're making in that picture, if I do say so myself.

You really are the greatest guitarist of all time! CONGRATS!

Anonymous said...

Hi!!!
ok first i want to say i saw AFI at the kroq acoustic xmas thing via the always opportune site known as youtube. That was the only way I could've seen you guys performing.

Next off I want to say THANK YOU for puting up posts, which I always read.

Oh, and do you really think your fans would watch a show like Jersey Shore, which is degrading to all mankind? I doubt it. AFI fans including myself would much rather listen to some music than watch a show about a bunch of brain dead nincompoops.

p.s. I wouldn't be anonymous if I had an acount on blogger. I'm not leaving an anonymous comment to be annoying or anything.

I read your blogs jade said...

I didn't vote because I don't know what AP is. But I'm glad you won. You've earned it.

ha ha, I guess shy boys do win.
Too bad shy girls don't.

Wow, dude, congratulations!

Have you ever said something and then realizing it only made sense to you? Or tried to point out someone coming behind somebody else and then called them something totally unrelated? Because that kind of happened to me today, I was talking to my buddy, let's call her Glunness, she asked me where my other friend was while eating a granola bar, and then the 'other friend' comes up behind the dude I'm talking to, and at the same time I'm trying to point out the granola bar, so I point behind Glunness and yell "Granola!!!"

Remind me never to multitask again.

Congratulations!!!! You so deserve it!!

Congrats Jade! I screamed when I found out and my sister thought I was having issues. Your the best guitar player in the universe and no one is better. You do the most AMAZING guitar solos! I can't wait to get my license to see more of your concerts! Until then, my friends and I will pray that you guys visit Tulsa more. We love you!

The Duck. said...

..By the way, great picture in the magazine. You always have the best facial expressions.

Dominic said...

You so deserve that, and so proud that one of my favorite guitarists ever gets some good recognition. I know you have been crazy busy with tour, but i cant tell you how happy i am that you even remember about the tab =) Has AFI ever considered getting another guitarist to play live with you that just stands on the side wearing all black so it gives you guys a bigger, fuller sound? Just a thought...

Congrats Jade! <3 you deserve it

Woo hoo! go jade
i read ALL, as in every blog you ever put up yesterday. it went back to january of 2006. i seriously checked out every blog you've ever written. now that's what i call dedication.
i couldn't help but notice your disdain over a jordin sparks video because it had the sound of footsteps as did your love like winter vid. No offense but it made more sense for there to be a heap of footsteps in her video than in love like winter b/c her song IS called 1 step at a time so don't scorn her my friend.

And God Said Let There Be Jade and it was goooood said...

You seem like a nice person. congradulations man

You've won, that's awesome.
Until now, I've been treating the "Jersey Shore" cast the same way I treat their summer stomping grounds: with detached, cautious amusement punctuated by the occasional, shameless fist pump.

you won that award. i commend you for that. i like your punk hairstyle. life's just a pay stub on debt only less diligent and when the two collide it's no coincidence.

Shy Girls Win said...

Jade, from the start I knew you were the best guitarist... OK, let's say from the moment I saw you. Pfft, you're better then the two guitarists from Dragonforce combined... I mean by awesomeness. I think that would be a tough battle. After all, I'd LOVE to see you try to play Through the Fire and The Flames... Hehe...

YOU ARE EVEN AWESOMER THEN EVERYTHING COMBINED!!!!!

Haha....if you can play that song though, send me a video! :D

Love You, Jade

Jamekae said...

So I just read that comment that you have all the footage for Stiff Kittens though it's not edited together.

I was wondering if you could please release those raw video files and allow the AFI/Blaqk Audio community to create a Stiff Kittens music video. My Premier and After Effects are itching to be used and it'd be a great fan project!

Think about it, I reckon it could be great.

First off, congrats on the "Best Guitarist" award.

So I've been stuck at home sick and have my iTunes open while I surf to Web. "Too Shy" by Kajagoogoo came on, and I remembered seeing the video to it recently. And then I remembered how much Limahl reminds me of you.

http://www.kissmusica.com/Imagenes_Cantantes/limahl.jpg

I just see a resemblance, especially since his hair and your 2006-era hair had the same color scheme. Anyways, I think that you and Davey should totally do a Blaqk Audio cover of "Too Shy". It's a fantastic 80's hit that you two could - for lack of a better term - own. Or, in the least, do one of those fabulous remixes to it.

I hope my previous comment didn't freak you out. I have a weird sense of humor, or so I've been told. But anyway, congradulations

Yana Ray said...

That's a great accomplishment. But do you know what would be even better? If you wrote your own book, like a memoir about your life. I'm serious dude. I'd sure as hell get that book. That would answer a lot of my curiosities about you and it would be a cool thing.

Charlie. said...

Haha that's awesome dude, feel proud! You know we love ya XD

Just realised...tis 5 weeks til I see you lads live again. The Novemberunderground Tour feels almost in another life now, so strange. Bring on Soundwave and the east coast of Oz! Beware the heat, it's terrible at the mo :)

Cant wait for Blaqk Audio's new album!

Rock on, all of you guys!!

Rhea R said...

Jade you totally deserved it.
You are one of the most amazing guitar players I have seen and I have watched your Rockabilly tribute a million times. No matter how many times I watch it, I always get blown out of my mind. You are a kick ass guitar player man. I am so inspired by your simple riffs that create a mood in an entire song (i.e.- 6 to 8) or your seemingly wicked 10 second solos (i.e.- Medicate, which was awesome btw). I wish I could grasp a hold of the electric guitar the way you have.

It's been my dream to meet you (and all of AFI of course, but speaking as a fellow guitar player...) and maybe hang with you and learn a few tips and tricks to mastering this instrument that many people have BS'd.

Man I sound so corny ^^
Nonetheless-you're awesome and I hope you keep burning the tracks with your red hot guitar solos. =D
