    Default The Hold Steady

    These guys were on Letterman last night.
    The debut disc is supposed to be pretty good.
    Any thoughts anyone?
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis

    I saw them on Letterman last night as well, and as usual I don't see what all the fuss is about (I'm a jaded 44 year old- haha). The thing I'd really like to know is why does the lead guitarist have a pedal board bigger than any I've ever seen in my life? It looks like he walked into Guitar Center and picked up two of every pedal they sell and then put them all on the pedal board. Yet, despite all of the floorspace he consumed I couldn't detect any unusual or interesting tones eminating from him...

    I think these guys are pretty great. Their latest album is actually their 4th one. They get compared a lot to Springsteen due mainly to the lyrics and vocal style. I have the newest disc (Stay Positive) and the previous one (Boys and Girls In America). Both are really good.

    I picked up "Stay Positive" over the weekend, haven't given it a full listen yet, but i'll post some thoughts on it soon.
    I like what i've heard so far though.

    Thanks guys for the heads up on this band, I think I am going to definitely get into their music. Kind of midway between Springsteen and the Replacements, with good stories for songs. The main reason why I did not get into them before their name sounded almost like it was some "techno-rave crap" that was of no interest to me, but it is good ole' rock and roll so it is up my alley.
