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.
