    A good article/interview with Scott Holiday. This I my favorite quote of the whole thing:
    I want people to be happy, man. I want people to listen to the music that makes their heart big and they feel good. It makes them feel the angst they wanna feel or excited or helps them hurt in a certain way. You wanna make people feel with music. I think famous and rich isn't really part of it.

    The stars have aligned, I get to see these guys in MSG in 11 days and work is paying for the trip. Even better they are playing the rescheduled date in Vancouver on my way home. Two shows 9 days apart and I couldn't be happier.
    Now let's get some music on this page.

    These guys sound good. The 2/25 show at MSG will be my first time seeing them. I'm looking forward to it.

    Really enjoying the new disc. Thundering Voices and Hollow Bones pt. 2 are killer.
  • pljampljam Posts: 371
    Really stood out on a listen today,I think John Bonham has risen from the dead,the drumming on this album is a clone of Bonham IMO ,not a critism a total compliment ,outstanding playing
  • northerndragonnortherndragon somewhere, nowhere, anywherePosts: 9,642
    Mikey is a phenomenal drummer and I'm really glad that it is so apparent on this album. I mean Scotty and Jay are the shit at what they do but it's nice to see Mikey shine as well.

    I have been a die hard music listener for 40 yrs and I think Jay's voice is the winner,best voice/vocalist I have ever heard ,the whole band are outstanding musician's but what a set of pipes,YouTube some live acoustic SONS ,absolutely amazing

    Thanks, Pressure and Time is still my favorite album of theirs but I love it all. So stoked to see them in Atlanta at the end of April.

    One of the best band...jay is unreal
    "...Dimitri...He talks to me...'.."The Ghost of Greece..".
    "..That's One Happy Fuckin Ghost.."
    “..That came up on the Pillow Case...This is for the Greek, With Our Apologies.....”

    JORDEN would have to be the best ballad of someone dying I have ever heard,PJ's THE END is amazing from a heartfelt saying goodbye perspective but JORDEN hits it out of the park,I think Jay's amazing voice just connects,not a lot of artists. have the ability to put you in the song ,on this one they do
    How is this band not in "the big deal league" they are the bomb
  • northerndragonnortherndragon somewhere, nowhere, anywherePosts: 9,642
    I have been saying that for a couple of years now. All I can say is tell all your friends, buy their albums and go to their shows. They kick off their Hollow Bones tour in the US on April 8th. I think the tour they just did opening for Sabbath is going to up the demand for them. At least I hope it does, although if they get big I will miss seeing them at club shows.

    I was just listening to these dudes last night. I wasn't familiar with them before but they are playing Ride Fest (we had such a great time last year that we're totally going again) and I need to familiarize myself. Sounds like some killer rock and roll.

    My bass player got me into these guys. He had them playing in his car on the way to practice. Got to his house yesterday and he had a show from Sonisphere 2014 on the tv. Fuckin' bad ass, top shelf rock n' frickin' roll!!!!

    YouTube Rival's Sons acoustic ,quite a bit there,if you like the sons and like stripped back acoustic music,it doesn't get much better than what these guys give,some of the best acoustic music I think I have ever heard,simply amazing
