Ok..I am baffled right now. I have heard their album and it is good, but I haven't really heard their single on the radio, yet they are 45 on Billboards top 200...I was shocked to see thm taking off like they have. Just a month ago they were on the heatseekers charts.
Those guys are smokin! I say them a few months back in Louisville, sight unseen, and they gave me similar shivers like the first time I saw Galactic. Very different style from Galactic, of course, but they gel together well and have the Stevie Ray thing really flowin. Must-see!
Plus the bassist held a jay for the drummer so he wouldn't have to quit his solo to partake. Heh-heh
These guys are an awsome family threesome, their vocals blend so perfectly-like only family members can. Plus, they all can rip it up like nobody's business. For their encore in Chicago, the guitar player was playing with his left hand on the frets, and the bass player was doing the same on his guitar, and then reached over his brother's shoulder and starting playing something different on his guitar....three grooves on two guitars at once! unreal, I am so psyched to see them.
I went and bought there album like 3 weeks ago and about a week ago i heard them on the radio for the first time. Now they have been on the radio nonstop with "heaven". It's too bad to see that happening because they are gonna get played out fast i think. goddamn clear channel...
"The problem with GnR is that they suck. The songs suck. Even when they were in their prime they sucked. Remnants of an era of misogynistic sunset strip garbage. Bros who dressed like girls but still acted like high school jocks.

I had seen them before bonnaroo at willies picnic in 03. They needed more variety in theor set list. Everything was the same. Good show but very little variation. I also saw them at acl in 2003 also. All three shows were practically the same.
My memory of that summer is very foggy. Did they throw their instruments across the stage and have them bang into each other at bonnaroo? I know it happened theor or at the picnic but I really think it was at which.
I saw them in Pensacola several years back. A friend of mine who plays bass wanted to see them. He liked the guitar play when he saw some of their stuff from like Austin City Limits. He wasn't as impressed live. I was making out with a chick in the bathroom last I remember
