Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

Sorry, Vince. (And thank you) You have my permission to copy and paste it, with FFS taken out!

Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

Well, now I know not only who the 13th Floor Elevators are, but also that "Electric Love" is by BØRNS. I'm glad I chose my words carefully.

Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

Thank you for this article it speaks to alot of youngsters who could use the education. I would like to pass it along to my daughter, but the vulgar language prevents me from doing so. Watch the language, for fucks sake!

Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

I'd like to make some musical recommendations.

May I take you to dinner at the Folly Road Huddle House? It would be such an honor -- and please don't laugh at me.

Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

Factory Connection - the artist is BORNS, and it is very much a Velvet Underground cover.
LA1 - I've had a few turntables over the years - at least one in every place I've lived for the past 12 years. Currently there are three in my home! Also, I'm old enough to have actually bought 45s of Cyndi Lauper, Tina Turner, and Billy Joel when they first came out;)

I thought the future would be cooler.

But Peppermint Jack isn't sure.

Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

You may want to fact check that "Sunday Morning" article if the pop group who shalt not be named is Maroon 5. Because their songs of the same name have different structures, melodies and lyrics.

Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

I'm so glad you were a dmb fan girl or we would have never crossed paths. Also Dave got me into Lyle Lovett thanks to covering "if I had a boat". Now I'm a huge Lovett fan! :)

You're awesome. The end. #nanciesforlife

Side note: how is Dave Matthews NOT in the ADX prison in Florence, Colorado?

Touring with Dave Matthews Band? Boldest confession I've ever read in a paper.

I admire your courage.

Can you provide a link for donations, please?

Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

wickedmark: Well, I'm not saying that small list of artists is all I know about — that's a sample of what I began to thoroughly examine about a dozen years ago. I haven't stopped, I assure you:) And you're right, because there's always more where that came from. Thanks for reading!

Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

You've got a ways to go Kellie Rae. When I was a teenager, all those artists you are learning about could be heard on a transistor radio on a daily basis. Got the original vinyl LPs of most of the artists you have discovered. I got into a discussion the other day with a younger (20ish) black man about music. He slightly belittled me because I wasn't familiar with current popular black musicians. I told him once he could explain to me the importance of James Reese Europe, James P. Johnston and Jelly Roll Morton, then I'd worry about the new music.

Re: “Dig a Little Deeper: Confessions of a former DMB junkie

I know far more folks in the music community who know what's up than not, to be fair. For every person who hasn't yet discovered the 13th Floor Elevators (and I'm confident they will at their own pace, which I'm obviously trying to escalate!), there is another person who has something to teach me about an artist I haven't quite gotten to yet.(So much wonderful ground to cover — it'll take a lifetime, to be sure) A good friend recently urged me to get on a Randy Newman kick, for example, and that's been fun:) Thanks for reading!
