they've got mad indie/punk cred and i know i should check 'em out, but my first experience with them was Corin ruining live PJ staples every night and that's a grudge that's hard to get over.

Give The Woods a shot. If the voices are too much, it can be a tough sell, but if you like them like I do, it's one of the hardest rocking and best albums in years.

Seeger Sessions ROCKED

I love the different spin they put on all of the originals (Johnny 99 in particular). Then you have American Land, Pay Me My Money Down, O Mary Don't You Weep, etc. What a fantastic concert

On the pop guitarist spectrum, Jack Johnson is relatively harmless in comparison to the likes of Jason Mraz.

I've been watching the Paramount performance of Darkness On The Edge Of Town tonight, and two things have struck me;

- Springsteen is a fucking awesome guitar player. He almost preceded punk rock in the way his solos focused on viciousness and the willingness to include his mistakes into it.

- Darkness On The Edge Of Town is the best album he ever made, and one of the best albums ever made.

I can hear that, though I prefer Springsteen. There's this gut feeling, for lack of a better term, that I hear when Springsteen or Neil Young takes a solo, that it just feels like it's coming right out of them. McCready appeals to me for the virtuosity, but (with some BIG exceptions), I feel like Stone plays more from his gut.

It's strange; there's a ton of songwriters who I think are incredible soloists, some of whom aren't even well regarded for their soloing; I mentioned Springsteen and Neil Young, but Jeff Tweedy's another one. Maybe it's just cause I feel like their playing is an extension of the song they wrote.

Lost In The Flood from Hammersmith is one of the greatest performances I've ever heard

i definitely know that "from the gut" feeling you're talking about, they can come across as sloppy solo's but i love them for that very reason. jack white is another.

Damn, he'd been in bad shape lately I had heard, but that sucks. Hoping for the best.

An article I read doesn't make the situation sound too promising. Apparently he's had two brain surgeries and the members of the E-Street Band were advised to get down to Florida as soon as possible. Here's hoping.
