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!)
kdridnour: Update! I got a Shugaung Rectifier in my Plus now and my Plus sounds great!

GuitarZ: Thank You Z-Talk! I blew the dust off of my Signa Drive to plug in and was scratching my head on my old settings. I finally thought to do a search here and found a Z-Talk thread from 2011 with my settings. Nice!

GuitarZ: The Mrs jumped into action to find me a cancellation & called multiple spots. One said they had one now if the person didn't show up. She said GO! Went & got the shot. Called the Mrs. She says Where are you At? Went to the wrong one. Guess I don't listen.

j4gitr: Second Pfizer shot gave me a sore arm I felt sluggish, but played a couple hours of guitar with a friend, and ran an errand. Afternoon nap just about set me right.
