Say Goodbye

Dear Dave Matthews Band,

Wow. I’ve been your willing audio slave for over 4 years now. Imagine that! We’ve been through 4 concerts and countless new CDs. You release a CD every few months now — most of them live shows in places way cooler than Camden, NJ. And that’s great.

But lately…I dunno…I’m starting to feel a bit used. Like you take it forgranted that I’m going to buy every live CD that you do. I got the “Red Rocks” one for Christmas. And it was fantastic (esp “Hunger for the Great Light” — you know how I feel about that one). But it seemed comfortable…too comfortable.

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I think I want to start seeing other bands. I…um….met some Barenaked Ladies music over the last few weeks. And I had a fun time listening to them. They’re pretty cool, and I hear they do great live shows too.

But I still want to be friends and even see you regularly. Just not exclusively. I hope you’ll understand.


  • I can’t say that I am familiar with DMB because I’m not. However, what DNB is doing is something that has typically been done by a lot of Progressive Rock bands. Two bands that I have seen do this are Phish and the Allman Brothers Band. These two bands have a reputation for never playing the same set twice – and always playing each song a different way.

    DNB has built the majority of their following by going on the road and playing live. It was a matter of time before they found their way to terrestrial radio. But when you are a “road” band, there is going to be the demand for these CDs.

    With the “Radio Ga Ga” that has littered the airwaves now, I find DNB at nice change of pace – even though I can’t say I’m a big fan.

    BTW….like the red hair 🙂

  • I love the BNL, they just played in Sewell. I was then able to download from their site, that particular concert. Have a great New Year!
