Stephanie, His music doesn't suck. It is just ungood
I think you're missing a big point. Edwin McCain's music sucks. BOH's does not.
I think you're splitting hairs. But Murray is certainly more of a local than someone who has never lived here before. The article starts off by admitting it could be a stretch to call BOH a local band. But the fact is, Ben Bridwell is from SC, and the band now calls Charleston home. Edwin McCain, while also from SC, wasn't born in this area and doesn't live here currently. That's the only distinction the article makes, and it is accurate. You're starting to sound like one of those people who thinks Obama isn't a U.S. citizen. Wait, maybe you ARE one of those people. Come to think of it, your bio says you moved to Charleston twenty years ago. Are you a local?
So, adman, using that logic Bill Murray is an actor from Charleston?
Ima Oldman--actually it's neither favoritism nor hypocrisy, but fact. The difference is that McCain is from Greenville originally and lives there still. Members of BOH live in the Lowcountry. http://www.edwin.com/biography.html
In before "list fails without"....
You call Band of Horses a local band, but say Edwin McCain doesn't count because he's from Greenville. Personal favoritism or hypocrisy?
