Gov't Mule! Saw them last December in Toronto. Exactly as you described.ofender said:For me a good band is when each and every member of that band is allowed to *breathe* and express themselves. This goes without saying that every member of the band is mature enough to understand their place within the music they’re playing (no need to have everybody jamming 10 minute solos all at once).
Very often, bands going into studio to record will keep things a little simpler on the recordings but they make up and let loose when they play live. The one band that I think of is Tom Petty. It’s too bad because he is a good songwriter but man, is his music ever boring. It’s dead.
So a good band is pretty much anything that feels alive and like David said, musicians who are having fun.
