Yes Kinsey I have to agree that Chris Gaines brought out a unique scale to G's vocal range and I felt like the harmonic melody "Lost in You" was so shockingly amazing I still get chills when I listen to it! Garth once said his Dad was so blown away by his voice on "Lost in You". I don't think he or Garth, knew he could sing like that!
Being a diehard Garth fan, oh these so many years it never bothered me that he went off the country path and tried something new. I just felt that all great ones have to explore, experiment and think out of the box with their music and path. I loved every track the minute I heard them! I completely got lost in the sound. I was very proud of Garth for making this step in his music and growth.
I still listen to my original, holographic cover, limited edition cd that I treasure and enjoy on a regular basis. I share with friends and family and with their little giggles and smirks when they finally realize who that really is that is singing there are no more giggles or smirks but wows and ohs...I slowly build a small legion of Christ Gaines fans still to this day.
If I ever have the chance to meet Garth, the Chris Gaines would be one I would love for him to autograph. It's a very special gift to us fans. With the excitement of attending 3 nights of his 4 shows this weekend I hope and wish that I do get to meet him and tell him how much that album means to me as part of his music collection. Have secretly wished he would do just a special edition Chris Gaines like one of his box sets. I know for a fact it would sell...just leave the wig and two toned tights at home. Bring the jeans and a stool and continue that channel when he got lost in the music deep down in places I don't think he knew was there.
Thank you for joining me in the admiration and accolades to Chris Gaines...
Use Uber instead of driving your own car. No parking worries!
uhhhhh, PBS made one a few years back
todd is the best and fuck the rest ! all that other shit is a joke . todd didn't die at 28 like others did because he is too smart.
Ok, he produced the New York Dolls album. Is that alone worth enshrinement? No. Spend an hour with Pandora or Spotify listening decade by decade to Rundgren's music, then compare each song with the hits of the same era, then watch Stallone's "Demolition Man" and see how in it's future top 10 radio plays only 20th century commercial jingles. That reality's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is where Lundgren belongs. And btw, CIA, you like the Dolls, you like Johannson because they were originals, you don't like Rundgren, he wasn't.
He produced the first New York Dolls Record, he still has all of his hair and hes still alive after 50 years in the music business, that should count for something. The Hall of Fame is a joke, John Lydon had the right attitude, "we're not coming, we're not your monkey and so what?" I think that perhaps the piss stain comparison is still pretty spot on as well. While Todd's music is not for me, I still gotta give him some mad respect for producing that first Dolls album that many of us still love, he gave us David Johansson singing Bo Diddley's Pills, now that is a real classic. Jesus, wish I didn't read this article because now all night and traveling all day tomorrow I'll be singing "Through my head, through my head".
This was a great show from a highly underrated artist. His solo work is impressive both musically and lyrically, and I recommend a spin around his web site or his youtube channel for some great footage of performances and insight into his new album, "New Year People".
There's nothing sadder than an aging punk who's still mad about that one time the cops told him not to skate in front of the library.
Modern American punk is built on the phrase skateboarding is not a crime and nothing else.
There is no philosophy against the government, organized religion, or Pink Fucking Floyd.
It's all just, this cop harassed me one time and watch me shoot this ball of snot out of my nose.
No truer words were ever spoken.
"...I don't even know what it means to be a punk band in 2016."
It means being completely beholden to exactly the sort of conservative, idol-worshiping bullshit that punk rock was supposed to stand in opposition to.
He ain't wrong about the Hall of Fame being a joke, though. http://www.lettersofnote.com/2010/09/rock-…
How is he not in the Hall of Fame? Listen to his catalog - formulaic pablum. From Nazz forward all he's done is ride someone else's shirt tails.
I feel like these spammers could use some Jucifer in their lives.
^What? Huh? I can't hear you. I've already seen them a few years ago and still have not recovered any hearing in my left ear. They slay it and their name cracks me up. O.J. (Juice) Simpson and Lucifer = Jucifer.
Take earplugs if you go to this show.
Awesome spot and even better idea! Go support this place, I found a lot of gems for $3
Neil Young tribute at CMH and Whiskeytown tribute at PoHo! Great night of music for ChuckTown.

your autographed CD 🎵 Amazing !
Just discovered these two talented young people.....they both sound so grounded and that's so refreshing from the "biebers" of the world....I hope they stay together...both talented but their style together is fantastic....I love Eva's style....she seems like such a sweet young lady with just enough little "imp" in her....maybe something a kin to the Carpenteurs. (sp) (I just hope they don't go in that direction personally)
