    I know, that is the amazing part.

    I am not the one comparing him, it is places like Rolling Stone and Guitar World that are.

    I have a friend who has similar Rock oppinions as you, and he was blown away the first time we saw them. Same with another Guitarist friend of mine.

    They were nominated for two Grammy's last year, Played at the Grammys in the P-Funk tribute and their album, "Unclassified" was rated top 50 of 2003 by RollingStone.

    They are good and a very fresh breath of air for music today.

    i knew i liked you just from the sig pic! lol!
    when it comes to GP the limited library is the only drawback
    he was definitely taken too soon!

    not to put him on par with GP who is revolutionary in music
    but as a singer/songwriter one of my other fav's is richard buckner
    anyone who likes GP will likely dig him too
    his album Bloomed or Since is the best place to start
    if you ever decide to take a chance on bloomed
    i recommend holding out for the import version
    because it has like 5 extra tracks!!

    here is a link to check out some of his stuff if you are interested
    it is a mix from all of his albums which range widely in style!!

    look for the small radio tower and "Hear the artists on KDAV"

    let me add, "a goodbye rye" & "lil wallet picture" are two of my all time fav's!!

    My favorite bands are: Prince, Frankie Beverly and Maze, Earth/Wind/&Fire, and The Isley Brothers.

    Wouldn't you classify a band as a group or duo that sings and/or play their own instruments?

    No mention for Tool?

    Danny Carey is an amazing drummer and the band is unlike any other.

    I like the first two the best (One Big Cake, Heat Miser).

    But their shtick isn't really the studio album. Like everybody on my list, the live experience is the best way to enjoy them.

    I noticed somebody listed Rober Randolph. I have seen his band twice and seen him play with other groups at least a dozen times. He is an amazing guitarist. He is referred to as a "festival whore" because in addition to playing his own set he shows up to jam with everybody else :)

    Another poster mentioned Jay Farrar. Uncle Tupelo and Son Volt put out some really great stuff. Another along those lines is Whiskeytown. This was Ryan Adams' band before he went solo. For some really good music with a slight country twang, check it out. For those that have never listened to the alt.country genre, it's not the country you're used to hearing. It can be depressing, but very, very good music.

    it is almost all i listen to anymore! i am so hooked on jay farrar's new live album it is ridiculous! what can i say? i am a big fan! :)

    BTW Uncle Tupelo IS GOD!!! it simply does not get any better than that!!

    some other EXCELLENT bands in that genre are Old '97's, who most people in TX ought to have heard of, as well as Blue Mountain, Bellewether, Mulehead, the Jayhawks and even Mike Ness of Social Distortion has a couple of real good solo alt-country albums!

    The best bass player I have ever heard shares your screen name.

    Victor Wooten, bass player for Bela Fleck and the Flecktones.

    As Forrest Gump would say, "We are of no relation." I've seen Bela Fleck and the Flecktones and Merlefest and here in Richmond, VA. I believe they are playing here again soon. They are a great band to see live.

    A band/musician I really like out of TX is Robert Earl Keen. He's a blast to see live in a bar setting.

    Is he still active?

    I have never heard him but you are not the first person I have heard rave about him. It's been 6-7 years since I heard of him though.

    I love how the greatest talents stay under the radar of national exposure and are passed along via word of mouth.

    Just like I was shocked to see somebody from Arkansas familiar with House of Large Sizes, a band majorly famous in Iowa/Illinois but pretty much unheard of outside of the midwest.

    I agree with this. Wooten my personal favorite on the bass as well.
