I can't deal with contemporary country -- as Tom Petty said, it's like bad rock with a fiddle.

I know, but I listen to them and I'm happy to say so.

I really like the first three albums -- a little filler, but a lot of the songs are brilliant. "Rush of Blood to the Head" is my favorite.

To me it's kind of hard to tell how good most of those guys are or were as musicians.

They're good at that particular thing, which is pretty limited and specific. I have no idea what any of them...

Naw -- punk/hard core punk served it purpose.

There's a mystique around it and a value as far as how it influenced what came after.

I know the band.

The studio stuff is marginally better -- but the idea that they are "masters of their instruments" is pretty silly.

They're just competent enough to do what they do -- and...

Heh.

To me, raw and straight from the gut is more about a real blend of emotion and great playing. Not just screaming and flailing away.

Okay -- this is one of my favorite songs by an Australian band called The Drones. It's just raw energy, straight from the gut. Sounds like Joe Strummer on meth.

On my mom's side, with her southern ancestry going way back -- no plantation owners, but merchants and cotton traders etc. Not much doubt that some owned slaves.
