Hard to say at this point. Buddy has been a great inclusion though. And over the course of the tour I found he carved out his place a lot better in terms of tones, levels, and vocals.

I'll need at least one professionally mixed released Buddy show before I can judge, I think. I've spent a lot of time listening to all of the nuance Butch added.

I realize this is an elitist music asshole thing to say, but they all are so compressed I find them unlistenable.

Buddy fit in faster but not necessarily better.
Butch sound fits the dmb vibe overall better where Buddy is more rock

Buddy.

Butch solos bored me to tears. Buddy does a better job of complimenting their sound and that is all i want a keyboard to do in this band. Not be a standout instrument.

But I would argue he stands out more than Butch. His on stage personality and singing alone. Have you heard Stay from last year? Also, Superstition.

A few of them, but you have to admit the two step solo on CP is a masterpiece. I really liked his solos on Bartender too. LIOG ones were hit or miss but when they were good, they were great.

Posts 2 and 3 sum it up. Ď95 and Ď00 are my two favorite DMB years and Butch was a part of the latter, so...

Butch Taylor PROS & CONS

Pros:
Nuanced and subtle.
Better soloist.
Leaks unreleased studio material

Cons:
Doesn't get along with the band.
Some solos dragged.
Shares name with a porn star, so Googling him can be problematic.

Buddy Strong PROS & CONS

Pros:
Can sing his ass off.
Energentic.
More of a showman.
Band is head over heals in love with him.

Cons:
Not nearly as familar with the catalog yet.
Can be overbearing at times.
Keeps setlist in plain site on his keyboard for the cameras to broadcast at shows.
Hasn't leaked anything yet.

I dont want to hear keyboard solos. I felt like they went over the top trying to highlight him.

Buddy needs to vary his tone more. Not every song or every fill sounds best with an organ. Play some nice clean piano tones. Play some thick, funky clavinet.

This.

Butch is boring as hell and slowed them down way too much. He encouraged their lazy habits instead of making them step up and move a bit.

Maybe I have been drinking but I would almost pref the ladies over Buddy
Almost
At least they are not out there for the whole show but to be fair I'll see how Buddy does after some time
