"bands I'm Just 'meh'/ambivalent Toward..."

Keller Williams: sometimes it rubs me the right way, but usually I feel like he's an act on Sesame Street (no disrespect to Keller fans)

Hmmm...guess I brought it up, so:

1. Pearl Jam - phenomenal musicians, some of their music I believe is as good as it gets, some just "meh"

2. Fleetwood Mac - again, incredible talent with some serious work, but overladen with popitude

3. The Cars - well crafted and clever with some great 80s hooks...see how the reunion works out for them.

And the Stones are gearing up for a 50th anniversary "final" tour. What I want to know is, where does the time go?

Chuck, in my opinion each of the 3 bands that you mentioned share a common characteristic........they are each essentially one-album wonders.

Pearl Jam - Ten

Fleetwood Mac - Rumours

The Cars - The Cars

I actually really like each of these albums......I would consider them classics (yes, even the Cars). Everything that followed, for each of these bands, paled in comparison. Fleetwood Mac's early stuff (pre-Stevie) was so different.......hard driving blues/rock.......pretty cool.

Again, my .02

Good point...about each of those albums, and about Mac in particular.

Pearl Jam certainly has the courage of their collective convictions (I remember Vetter showing the "K" on his shirt in the '94 SNL show, and their tilting at Ticketbastard). Their release of their shows as band-produced SBDs is a testament to their faith in their fans.

The Cars were a great blend of 70s New Wave evolving into 80s intelligent dance pop. I liked their videos too...

As for Mac, I think "Oh Well" is genius. What can you say about a band with three original members from the Bluesbreakers? Then Peter Green left...

This will be heresy to some but I feel this way about the ABB. I really want to like them but it just hasn't clicked with me.

I dig Keller....a show here, a show there. I wouldn't follow him cross country though...it starts to sound the same.

    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.

      A few years ago I had been in seriously deep dark depression.  I was essentially a walking dead.   The various chemistry the several doctors gave me did nothing. Then one day this song came on the radio…I had not heard it since my hippy days many years ago when we would sing it around camp fires, festivals and occasional church meeting.   Hearing this song broke me out of my depression illness.  I came alive again. Peace and Love, Doc
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie

      Arlo was in Atlanta about a week ago. It was a very good show with his daughter, Sarah, and son Abe in the band. I've been fortunate to hear Arlo many times over the years and frequently play his CDs in the car.  The last couple years his shows often start with "The Motorcycle Song" as a video cartoon played on a big screen before the band comes out for the last chorus.

      TR, very cool you posted. I'm a big Arlo fan. Saw him about 91 or 92 play at Queen's College in Charlotte. It was a school theater holding about 500 or so people. He came out in tattered blue jeans, holey t-shirt, and barefooted. Just came to the front of the stage and sat down on the edge with his feet dangling. I don't even remember him using a microphone. He played and told stories for a couple of hours, including the motorcycle song. What a great memory that is for me. Thanks for taking me b
