Do the poll, talk about the band.

If you haven't heard of them, do not vote until you have heard atleast these songs:

*Wake Up
*Keep the Car Running
*Rebellions (Lies)

Since there are 88 more years to go in this century, I'd have to wait a bit before I say that they are the GREATEST :lol: ..... but I DO like them!!

You did not provide a "possibly, let's give it time" vote button. :D

Ohhh! I should've added that :( It's the gluten that left it out, not me!

I wanna have the band play in the same room while I consummate my marriage... whenever that happens lol

And with the Mayan calendar ending in December, I don't think we'll have to worry about those 88 years.

The calendar may be ending, but I am betting you can still plan your Super Bowl Party for 2013.

In the same room as you "consummate" ??....yikes... good luck with that one. :lol:

Sorry. My taste leans more toward Bach. Or Wes Montgomery. Or Frank Zappa. I like a wide variety of musical styles, but these guys don't do a thing for me.

But that is why there are so many bands - somebody is going to love them. :)

Can't eat soy, corn, or foods high in salicylates.

Nightshades now seem to bother me too.

My tastes lean toward Vivalde, Ella Fitzgerald, Buddy Guy, Etta James, Dave Brubeck.... and a spectrum so wide people would think me odd...(just no country)
but as far as "alternative bands" go, these guys are not so bad. Certainly NOT the band of the 21st century. (sorry) IMHO

Well, being born in the early 90s, I missed most of the good music that America has to offer :( (60s, 70s).

The good thing about music (from any era ) is....you haven't really "missed it"..... you can always listen to it ! Music is timeless, kiddo. :)

True, but I missed being at Woodstock.

At least my generation has Bonnaroo and Coachella.

It's a good thing that music IS timeless. Otherwise IrishHeart and I would have to be REALLY old - except for Brubeck, all of the musicians we named are dead, some of them for centuries!

And Etta James just passed :(. Talk about a great live show...

Don't forget Billie Holliday.

Irma Thomas. She's still kicking!

My playlists kick out a schizophrenic mix between hubby's Alice in Chains, my son's Shinedown, and my JJ Grey & Mofro.

And then there's Willie and Jamie Johnson. And Don Williams.
