Sorry, but Jeff Miller is dead wrong. Elvis Presley, the Everly Brothers, and probably many other rockers always played acoustics.
When Bob Dylan played acoustic guitar he was famous as a folk singer. It was at the prestigious Newport Folk Festival that Dylan played half of his set on acoustic guitar, and brought out an electric band to play the second half. He was booed off stage. You cannot begin to understand the betrayal his many fans felt to see him "sell out" if you were not there.
What Bob Dylan taught us, if anything, is that you cannot play folk music on electric guitar because it automatically becomes rock and roll. (Although hyphen lovers call it folk-rock.)
Seems like someone would figure it out and get The Old 97's and the original Twangmeister, Duane Eddy, in the studio together.
Chris Forsythe is the MAN! He is a very important fixture in the Colorado Springs music scene, and we are lucky to have him here!
Does the ego thing include Fred? Because that may be the most egoless, nice guy musician I have ever met. I first spoke with him when he was touring with The Color Fred and then again when he came through as part of The Lemonheads backing band, not only did he remember our conversation from years before but he was just as enthusiastic and cool as I remembered, seemed like he had nothing but good to say about anyone he had ever played with
The dancer is this video is 11 year old hip hop dancer, Emily Hoffman. She lives and trains in the LA area.
good article.Having had a long association with the band ,I'm thrilled that they still play occasionally and even happier when I can see them. If you like good Punk and live near Denver,This is rare opportunity to view the Mutants live. GO!

If you like hip-hop, you might like my blog, Rhymes and Reasons. It’s a series of interviews with hip-hop heads who discuss their lives and a few songs that matter to them. Pretty powerful stuff. Check’em out here:

Umm Tom Petty is one band and The Replacements are another, just saying
In 1968 my brother came home from his stint in the Navy. I was about twelve years old. He brought with him, among a host of other music, Tom Rush. My whole family has been in love with his music ever since. I try to catch every performance I find him at within 100 miles of us here in Colorado Springs. Can't wait for tomorrow night in Black Forest. Doesn't get any cozier than that place.
Who is this douchebag writer Parker? Dando made his peace with his career arc long ago and admittedly had a lot of fun while entertaining a bit of a "perverse streak" all those years ago. Now he has a loving cult audience and writes and performs the songs he wants to while his back catalogue keeps growing nicely. Sounds like the writer read all of the shallowest writing on the Lemonheads and then wrote the same recycled crap piece on Dando we've seen a million times without offering even the slightest glimpse into what makes the man one of the most underrated and least understood songwriters of the last generation. "It's A Shame About Dando." Really? It's a shame about two-bit writers like Chris Parker that don't do their homework.
Thanks to Chris Parker and the CS Independent for getting the word out about The Blue Ribbon Healers!
This band is so worth seeing and experiencing....like nothing else!!! Unique, clever, fun and you can dance to their music too!!!! So to the core moving!!!
Northern California loves the Hooten Hallers ! Andy and John are always welcome at their Modesto Dog Pound. Great Article !!!

Hey check out (and like) an awesome video interview with the Grammy Award Winning Producer Steve Lillywhite who has worked with artist such as U2, the rolling stones, etc at: http://culturecatch.com/vidcast/steve-lill…
While I'm sure Mr. Glier's music is therapeutic for the people he visits in the hospital, I must take issue with the title of this article as Music Therapy. A music therapist is a highly trained and credentialed specialist. Music therapists do not "own" music, but we do reserve the title of music therapy for work that is done by a board-certified professional.
