They sound like the Gin Blossoms on quaaludes.
Been a big fan of these guys since that remix was posted here last year (or the one before).
Ain't nothing wrong with the Smooth. I'm a Bob James junkie. Can't wait to crack this record open.
Terrible geography can be lots of fun. Just look at all those spaghetti westerns where they'd be fighting the Civil War in Arizona, which was just a few hours by train to Chicago. So "Wagon Wheel" takes place is an alternate universe... that's cool.
As much as I don't dig this kind of white people music: always gave this song a free pass, being from NC and TN.
Didn't watch. Predators were playing first-place Colorado. But Grohl is a first class attention whore. He fits right in here.
I don't think Jack White, Black Keys or KOL warrant attention in a Nashville documentary. (JEFF does.) They chose the city for the same reason ABC did. Because we were already doing our thing.
Here's another angle I think we should consider. This 'it' thing is not only a cultural revelation. It's $.
I'd argue that our music scene and hipster infestation have less to do with our IT status than the economic climate in Tennessee. For example, I earn my living in the Biotech sector. We've long been a backwater, hiding in the shadows of the Research Triangle. But in the last few years, things have really taken off. No, really. This is happening across other industries as well, and it just happens to coincide with our national coming out party?
Love Cash, Ryman, WSM, and Hot Chicken. (I also remember Turko, Lucy's, 328 and Starwood.) But its the money that's fueling our rise, not the music.
I would go see the show at The Palace Of Auburn Hills but Ron Artest.
So sad. I played in a couple of bands with Marc. He was totally the musical glue. Understated dude that would sit back there with a few things and just be so tasteful and timely with his playing. The picture of humble brilliance.
