  • I will give a donut t first one who can name the last song on Zebra Live.
    .

    Last song: Tell Me What You Want (I'm guessing my favourite tune by these guys!).

    Great guess. But it's not even one of their own. Hint: they are playing a special set of this band at BB King's in NYC later this year. And even then it's not an obvious song.

    As an aside if you can track it down, this is one of the great live albums I have.

    Failure

    They released "Fantastic Plant" in '96, which had the single "Stuck on You" which got some airplay, had the Depeche Mode cover "Enjoy the Silence" that was released in '98, and then gone. Ken Andrews (lead singer) did some side projects, but even he kinda fell off the face of the earth. Really too bad because Fantastic Planet is an awesome album, one of my favorites. Think I'll spin it now!

    Someone mentioned Hum, and they too are phenomenal. They play a couple shows a year in the midwest but haven't released an album since '98.

    Another one, although they are back together and touring now, is At The Drive In.

    Blind Melon N Alice in Chains

    These two. Blind melon is such a great summer band. All 3 albums are perfect to listen to outside during a nice bbq.

    Surprised it took 6 pages for someone to mention AiC. Im listening to their last album for the first time in years and really wish Layne could've cleaned himself up for atleast a 4th album. I know they're around now with Duvall but it is not the same at all. Their new album is just a Jerry Cantrell solo record to me. Anyway.....

    Uncle Tupelo, anyone?

    I second Blind Melon, and would add the original (Gram Parsons) lineup of the Flying Burrito Brothers.

    Oh, and Derek and the Dominos...love that one album they did!

    they are still called AIC and have every right to call themselves that if they want to. But the Layne AIC is WAY different than the William AIC.

    If so, how is their career TOO short when they are playing 500 seat places? Some might argue they overstayed their welcome.... :lol:

    If different, then my apologies.

    Gnarls Barkley - they apparently have no plans in the works. Cee Lo and Danger Mouse together put out 2 fantastic and original albums that I would argue are among the best of the previous decade.

    And just to share my opinion on a few of the mentions that have been hotly debated - Led Zeppelin were around probably just around the right amount of time. I think they had a great number of incredible albums, but they were losing their steam towards the end and were one album away from bad synthesizer rock and worse yet Jefferson Starship...at least that is what I have gathered from In Through the Out Door. They were also really not getting along towards the end apparently and on verge of implosion anyway.

    I think the world caught a good amount of the Beatles, but that may have been one of the few bands truly deserving of a reunion once everyone got their collective creative jollies out in the 70s. It would have been great to see them not hate each other and collaborate with all their newfound musical influences...which in turn could have made things a lot different for the 80s. But who knows...

    King Crimson....the Fripp/Wetton/Bruford/Cross line-up....three studio albums*, a live album and dozens of bootlegs is all we have to enjoy of this sonic circus. I am glad that the Japanese apparently love this line-up and extensively bought and sold bootlegs of their live shows. This has lead Fripp to officially release many of those shows in the last couple of decades. :(

    *The "Starless and Bible Black" album was mostly recorded in front of a studio audience, but all crowd was edited out. It was then marketed as a studio effort would have been.
