Dave Matthews Fans:

I'll be honest, for some reason I never really listened to Dave Matthews much. Any opinions of him out there?

Just heard more news from FUSE TV, I think I'll check this out to find out what I think:

In case you haven’t heard, Dave Matthews Band will be playing a commercial free concert special at the Beacon Theater June 1st and Fuse will be airing it LIVE! DMB wants to celebrate their classic hit songs including their new album Big Whiskey and the Groogux King, in its entirety with their fans all around the world!

Yes, DMB will be playing live on Fuse, June 1st, at 9pm/8c, and everyone can hear their entire new album!

Jessica said...

I love him, but I think it can go either way. My husband thinks that he should technically like him, he likes the music, just not his voice. I'm excited about the new album. :)

There are some things I truly love and some that pass me by

Dan said...

Never hit me where it counted. Plus when they were on tour thru Chicago a while back they unloaded there bus septic tank over the river bridge. Turned me off completely.

Mike, hmmm, we have very similar tastes so I may not like him either.

Hi Jess, I hope you like the new album.

Bond, very diplomatic comment!

Dan - EWWWWWWWWWWW That is disgusting and turns me off completely too. How dare them.

He's a crazy one. "Gravedigger" makes me cry every time I hear it. I think his energy is amazing.

Peace.

The musicianship is there. The hooks are not. I have done my best to listen and take some of his stuff in. It always seems like there's a tune that's struggling to untie itself and break free of the meandering arrangements, though it just never happens.

My sister thinks that he's the second coming of JC.

Each to their own...

Dr. John said...

Like some of his songs but not others. I DO like Carter Beauford on drums, though. Very cool...

i like DMB - don't love it. a lot of what i like about DMB has to do with the fact that a neighbor of mine had DMB tapes/demos that he shared with me before DMB had a record contract. definitely a little ahead of the curve there - i'm not familiar with the last couple of albums though.

I do like DMB. They've got some unique music. I even referred them as alternaKansas. To me, the main flaw with DMB is that you have to be in the mood for it. Which doesn't happen too often with me.

I think the Dave Matthews Band is talented and not always deserving of the scorn they receive. That said, I don't think they're the Greatest Thing Ever. I like them but they're not my favorite band. One thing they have going for them - they have a very unique sound.

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Daniel, I will check out Gravedigger. That sounds like it should be a title of a Nick Cave song...or Rod Stewart.

Hi Dr. J! Thanks for your opinion.

Sean - can I assume you and your sis don't have the same taste?

CKJ, thanks for stopping by. Nice that you got to hear him before he was popular, that's always interesting.

Hi Drew, There are a lot of bands I feel that way about - I have to be in the mood for them. Then there are bands I listen to in order to create a mood.

Hi Russ, long time no see. Thanks for adding your thoughts. I did'nt even realize they get a lot of scorn (other than some they just got here...)
