The banter before Nine Bullets is hilarious (and fantastic!)

Re: Post from Patterson On New Record

While we're throwing our two cents in here I like the Perilous Night 45 and when I saw the band live I thought Babies in Cages was cool as shit. The only song in the band's entire canon that I don't like is What It Means but that's a Hell of a hit rate....they're at the 99 percentile with me. The st...

Re: RIP Dick Dale

Yep that's the one.

Speaking of Washington (Post), saw Dick Dale play the 9:30 several decades ago. He is a virtuoso guitar player and loud as fuck. What a combo. He also played the trumpet at this show! RIP.

On the original album, the inner sleeve has a picture of a Leonard Skinner Realty sign. By the time they got famos Mr Skinner had left coaching for real estate. The phone number on the sign was Mr Skinners real home phone number. Perhaps a little get back at the guy who kicked them out of school an...

As is usual for these sorts of things I am late to the party. Just saw the Skynyrd documentary (2018) If I Leave Here Tomorrow last night. I have to say it is the best one I have seen on the band. Didn't pull any punches. Hearing about what a mean drunk and bully St. Ronnie was made me wonder why so...

Patterson's e-mail seems like a direct response to the good members here who posted in the Recording in Memphis thread.

You have to appreciate this kind of interaction with the artist. I know I do.

Re: Ode to the greatest Dylan song many have never heard

I don't know myself or Bob Dylan's catalogue well enough to know why but I know this song. It's familiar to me, I know the melody and I have an mp3 of the recording but I don't know how I acquired it. Steven Hyden is right - it's brilliant.

I now see it was released in 1985 on the box set Biograph.

Re: 33 1/3 - Southern Rock Opera

Can't recommend it at all. Too much written about Rick Hall, The ABB and Skynyrd and not enough written specifically about The Truckers in general or the album in particular. The author didn't even interview anyone in the band. I'd say if you post on this board that you already know more about this ...
