I am not trying to be an A$$, but I don't get the new fascination with this band.. I am not big on the new rock scene, they are much better than most out now so I will give them that...Have watched a few videos on youtube..
Still I don't get it myself still sounds like most power pop bands just a bit better..

Ty, I agree with ya on today's crap that is out there..... I really like the melody and hooks in "The '59 Sound". That's what grabbed me and I have been listening to some of their stuff a bit more. I am more happy listening to old rock and what not, the good stuff.
To be totally honest, I came across them on youtube when I was looking up some Springsteen vids (the Boss is my all time fave) and seen the clip from Hyde Park with Springsteen joining them. It was cool so I thought why not give em a listen.
I've seen that video a dozen times, and it never gets old. If you've ever seen Gaslight Anthem live, or heard any of their tunes, the Springsteen-love/influence is so apparent. You can only imagine what was going through the singer's mind during that 4 minutes. Playing in front of 70,000 people, joined by Brice singing one of your songs with you. Unbelievably cool - I;m guessing that Brian Fallon will be telling that story to his grandkids in 50 years time.
(Just got tickets to see them again in the UK in October!)
GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.

GuitarZ: Arggh! We had it on the calendar to stop out and see you but got caught up with holiday stuff. I could have met you & Frank & my wife could have connected with her friend from back in grade school. You snooze you lose. The FB videos sound great!

GuitarZ: Why is it once you finally clean the junk off your work bench, within 5 minutes, you find yourself ready to deposit some other junk right back on to that now clean space?

rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
