"Young" is a relative term I guess. They're a hell of lot younger than me.

Anyway, that was really nice.

Guys in Viagra commercials look young to me these days. [smilie=icon_biggrin.gif]

My wife bought me the Broken Bones CD for Christmas not knowing that I'd ever heard of them. She had heard them on NPR.

I got an I-Tunes gift card as well and bought the Greyhounds Album with it.

Both albums are very good but what I find very cool is that both bands sound better to me live than in the studio. Perhaps there's some hope for music in the digital age after all. I was hoping that either band might play anywhere near hear but they are not. Sad thing is that if either band played here in Farthard, CT, I'd be one of 8 people that might go to see them. I wonder if they play Freebird or Mustang Sally at a bar gig.

FatherGino, check out Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, if you haven't already. Same vein as St Paul, but they play the northeast more often, I believe.

Very nice. Reminiscent of Janis Joplin.

Good for them. Maybe they'll get somewhere.

Here's another guy I've never heard of before even though millions of others have. I particularly like the second song in this clip: "I Need A Dollar". I love these quasi acoustic one-take videos.

Here's a studio take of the same song:

All of this makes realize that I have to get out of my defensive, grumpy old man, all new stuffs sucks and see what's going on out there. Just cause mainstream pop mostly sucks does not mean there isn't some real music happening out there. The same thing was true in the 60's & 70's.

Just going on personal experience trying to record with bands that made a name playing live, I attribute this to the studio being a starkly different environment. It's hard to replicate the energy of a live performance in the studio. IMO, YMMV, etc etc.
