Well whatever, he still doesn’t have to be pleasant but he is. Rashawn is more lucky than Fonz but he’s an ass

...and tour every summer.

Meh, I think he’s a really solid player.

I listened to BTCS in full the other day for the first time in ages and he’s as good as anyone on it. Great stuff in there.

This is not really a fair assessment. Not surprised though as this fan base doesn’t typically appreciate him.

I agree. We like to shit on him more than he deserves - and he's a talented musician.

He just also happens to be the same talented musician that laid the groundwork for Hungee for the Great Light.

Isn't Stefan also responsible for Black Jack or whatever?

At any rate, I didn't say Stefan isn't talented, just that he was extremely lucky and is also the most replaceable in the band. He also never had to do anything but get better at bass. He never had to hump a day job and was pretty much born on Dave's coattails. I'm sure there are many bass players with more talent that never got such an opportunity. That doesn't mean Stefan is talentless.

There's nothing anywhere to say Stefan was responsible for Blackjack. All we know is it was from the 2006 Batson sessions and brought back later.

Blackjack had a lot to do with Rashawn I believe.

I mean there are a lot of musicians who were in the right place at the right time. That's kind of just part of making it big for almost anybody, you have to have a little luck. The guys in the band picked Stefan to play bass and they toured their ass off and saw success. I don't think that's reason to basically invalidate what his musical career has been about.

Agreed. He's really good and seems to keep getting better. He obviously had enough talent to pick him at such an early age.

I could have sworn I remember a Twitter rant where Stefan cited several shit songs as stuff we wouldn't have without him. But I may very well be mistaken.

At the end of the day, Dave makes the calls. Stefan is a solid bassist that rarely fucks up, and that can hold a groove with Carter like no other. I can't rip him musically, because he doesn't really fuck up when he plays. Sure some of the songs he has credits for writing, suck. But then you listen to him do his thing on songs like The Stone or Dreaming Tree live, and I can forget about the shit like Hunger

Yea, we make fun of stefan here, but I always thought we did that with the appreciation that he was a super solid player and a perfect fit for this band. I have neverhad a bad thought about him on stage. Dude is a pro’s pro.

Having listened to the latest version of Shotgun from 2016, I still think it isn't finished. The song still seems to be a mishmash of ideas. Too many verses and choruses, etc.

I'm surprised the song's only been played 45 times. Then again, maybe I souldn't be.

Didn't know where to put this so I'll ask here. For anybody who's gone to a show this year already, buy chance are they checking signs as you enter? Has anybody seen signs mentioning Boyd? Or signs that could reference Boyd i.e. I'm in full jerk mode or just a sign with socks drawn on them?

Shotgun, Sugar Will, and others that have been worked on and even other songs that have been released seem to always try to be "tightened" up. I really wish they would stick with their original form when they first played them. Grey Street and Raven are examples of the lyrics being tightened up for the benefit of it, but the format of the song wasn't tightened up.

For Shotgun I wish they would have stuck with the Charlottesville 06 version. Sugar Will, stick with the 04 version.
