BAND WARS RD1: Foo Fighters vs Grateful Dead
How is this close?
What is wrong with you people?
Seriously this song alone sparks so many memories.
Williamson County pre-teen angst
I had the misfortune of playing in what gradualky exposed itself to be a Grateful Dead tribute band. They will never, ever get my vote for anything positive.
How can the Foo Fighters be squared with The Dead at 7?
Because not everyone are stoners
Garcia put together some very nice songs, and was far more prolific than the Foo Fighters. I can't say I didn't like a toke back in the day, but I don't think the Foo Fighters ever even glimpsed a following that the Dead had. The Foo Fighters couldn't hold the Dead's jock in real debate about the impact of music on a fan base, but I get your point. That was all so long ago that most of you were not there to remember it- I was, and still don't.....
Its amazing that a jam band could play THAT many gigs and still consistently sound like dog squeeze.
I like, but don't necessarily love, both bands. I really have to be in the right mood for the Dead. And even when I am in the mood I tend to get tired of it pretty quickly. I think part of that can simply be attributed to the fact that they are a jam band. If you're not stoned out of your mind 20 minute jams on a song like China Cat can get old in a hurry. They do have some songs I really love though.
Foo Fighters, I enjoy a lot of what I hear I just never got super into them for whatever reasons. I ended up picking GD mostly because I figured FF was going to run away with this one.
I voted FF because they are the last Rock band with staying power and Dave seems like a cool guy to hang out with - and I mostly do not like hippies, hippy music or tie-dye..
