in my opinion, boyd's biggest contribution (when he was at his best) wasn't his sound, but his energy and stage presence. the music he played was never really especially interesting, but the crowd always went nuts for him anyway. was the crowd going nuts for the violin? would anyone up there playing the violin make the crowd go apeshit? for me, the answer to those two is "nope". it was really just his stage presence

that's not to say i wouldn't want a violin player back in the band, but for me whats more important is the chemistry and musicianship with the rest of the band.
Couldn't agree more with this.
Long live the Matthews Band
