  • OT: There are just some bands...

    that make my brain shut down all thoughts of future gear acquisitions and make me want to just rock the hell out with the gear I have.
    Saw an opening band who I'd never heard of the other night, but they kicked ass and rocked harder than any band I've seen in a while. Just straight up easy, catchy, rock and roll with the stage presence to match, jumping off the bass drum, running around the stage, etc.

    Discuss...anyone have any similar experiences?

    Yeah, sometimes. When The Hold Steady comes on my iPod I often feel that way. Sometimes bands will inspire me to forget my pedal board and just crank my amp, but I'm just too used to my board.

      So, I didn't know who The Hold Steady were and went to YT to take a listen. Here's an actual comment that I thought was hilarious: "Sort of like Randy Newman fronting Green Day covering? a song that didn't quite make it onto Born To Run."

        Japandroids - Young Hearts Spark Fire

        Bridge pickup, anyone?




        EDIT: The studio sounds a lot better.

          Seeing Blackberry Smoke on Palladia lately. Great Southern Rock band with cool songs and 'Classic' Rock tones. They're a steady listen on my iPod.

              Usually the opposite happens. Especially with effects. I really want to get a good tremolo pedal because my band's covering this:

              Information is not knowledge
              Knowledge is not wisdom
              Wisdom is not truth
              Truth is not beauty
              Beauty is not love
              Love is not music.
              Music Is The Best.

                Yeah, I wasn't trying to be a wise-ass, that really was a comment on the firt tune that came up on YT. But after listening for a minute, I honestly thought it was a pretty fair assessment.
