You are right. The backlash is often as much directed toward an artist’s new found popularity and the crowds that it draws as much as it is against the song or album that spawns it. Think Nirvana’s “SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT” or Metallica’s “ENTER SANDMAN” although in both of THESE cases, many...
Yes. Of course TOUCH OF GREY, the only Dead tune that suffers from BACKLASH which means it is so good and therefore so popular (Top 10 BILLBOARD Hot 100 single) that Dead Hipsters reject it heh.
AND as u mentioned @Jon Silberman, TERRAPIN STATION the album. Absolutely...
Yes definitely AMERICAN BEAUTY. And I will add:

Have to agree here and I usually welcome contrary opinions as they can enliven a conversation. But this was a particularly virulent statement. Why not just create his own MAYER SUX IN D&C thread? The negativity on TGP can be overwhelmingly toxic sometimes.

Great essay. Mayer really has, IMO, earned his place here.
He makes a point that I have thought about a lot. It’s that, viewed one way, a Dead show is a three hour guitar solo. How is it possible that Jerry was able to solo so inventively that, to Dead fans at least, it rarely got boring and...
No I don’t. Thinking about a Katana to temporarily replace a bunch of stolen gear (tube amps, pedals, guitars) as I wait for a check from my insurance company.
I didn’t intend my comments to be disrespectful. But here you say the Katana is the best combo amp for the money. What makes you say...
You said yourself that you don’t expect better results. Why bother? There a MANY “nice combo amplifiers” with which to use your Moor multi effects unit. In fact, why would choose an inexpensive multi-effects amp do do it with anyway?? Perhaps an inexpensive tube amp would be a better choice?
Why on earth would you give it another try?? If you didn’t like it, you didn’t like it. There are about a zillion other options. If I were you I wouldn’t consider giving it another try. Unless I were being paid to. Time is money. I’d rather be playing...
Was gonna ask how AC/DC Live from 1972 isn’t from from “that classic 70s period”? But I checked. It’s a 1992 release. :)
