    Any Drive-By Trucker fans?

    These guys have become one of my favorite bands, and I was just curious if any other Clones have discovered them. They are a great blend sonically between 70's arena rock and classic country/folk rock. Their lyrics tell some great stories with a wicked sense of irony/humor and I can really relate to it, whereas the "country" music you hear in the radio is just mindless drivel with a fake southern accent, imho. I saw them in IC back in October (they were great!), and plan on seeing them in Omaha in February, as they'll be touring behind their new album, which comes out in January. They definitely rock!


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Which tunes do you cover? When I'm drinking with my buddies, I like to play Marry Me (i do it slower and acoustic) and Nine Bullets and just rock out.

    Love 'em! I was first introduced to them when I moved to NC.

    haha! Marry Me is probably my favorite Drive-By song, and one of my favorite of all time.
