The Bass player and Drummer are smokin'. The guitar player didn't give them enough space though, I would have to say that he is over playing.

I used to do the Erica Ehm and Dan Galliger Road shows whay back in the ?? Late 80's earlly '90's ?? she was allways smokin'.

I listened to it again.

I keep hearing the same thing. Obviously just my opinion, but I like some space. I've always been of the school that what you don't play is just as important as what you do play.

The bass player and the drummer are pretty tight, and I find my self trying to block out the guitar so I can zero in on them. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying I don't like the guitar player - I just think that there were alot of oportunities that he could have layed back a bit and let the rhythm section drive for a while. Again, my opinion, but I think the whole thing would have sounded more tastefull and the guitar playing would have had more impact.

I realize that they were booking as Robben Ford and the Blue Line, but the drummer and bass player are just as good as He is.

I can't play anywhere near as well as He does, but I've seen alot of players who have had more impact with less talent by playing less.

Now this was '93, I am not that familiar with the man's work myself, but I bet his later work has more breathing room. Is this assumtion correct, or is this like his signature style?


Fell free to slap me if I'm wrong, I'm wrong alot and I find my writing style comes off as a little condensending (much more so that I actually am in person), but I'm trying hard to correct this.

Just remember that the "good ol' days" were not actually all the good. Playing stuff like this was still very rare back then and we shouldn't hold this up as an example of how awesome MM used to be . . .

I've never really been able to dig this guy. Awesome chops but I find the music SO generic; I've heard this "guitar thing" a billion times before and it just seems completely tired to me. Not flaming anyone nor saying you're crazy for liking it. It just doesn't do anything for me.

Yep, to each their own. Nothing is more redundant than people arguing about "who rulz" (especially when we all know it's Neil Young None )

I'll have to stand up for Traynor Garnet here. That stuff just sounds like generic background music for shows on the Discovery Channel. I have no idea how people can get off on listening to it, but then again, I have no idea how people like Nickleback either. Or Inuit throat singing. Haha. :tongue:

I definitely agree with the "you'll never see stuff like this on Much again" though. It's a shame how bland and teeny-bopper that channel has become. I know people that work there and they all agree. The channel is just out for numbers and money now, so they go for the broadest base they can attract. They days of hearing a wide variety of music on channels like Much and MTV are over. Everyone has a video now- it's mandatory, but when they started they were scrambling for content, which is why you'd see such contrasting music on there.

And the personalities are gone. Instead of the Dan Gallaghers, Kim Clark Champnisses, Simon Evanses and Erica Ehms, there's a parade of generic, good looking early twentysomethings that know jack shit about music other than what they read from the teleprompter. As much as I found Steve Anthony an annoying idiot back when he was on, the dude looks like a genius compared to that Devon kid. I think that Rick Campanelli was the last of the VJs that gave a crap.

If you are going to mention Rick then you also have to say George snufalufagus or what ever the heck is last name is.

Yeah, George was great, but he wasn't really much of a host by the end. Just did the news or whatever. You can tell that he really cares about music though. Smart dude.
