Cover band that doesn't know who Barlow is

Post by KC.Jones » Fri Feb 09, 2018 10:46 pm

So I'm seeing this mediocre at best cover band (yeah i know, sorry us fiends need our fix sometimes) and they're at set break right now. They haven't played ONE Barlow song or even said his name. Seriously? Must be they don't know any of his songs, but seriously some of the most entry level GD songs are by Barlow. Just needed to vent to you all.

KC, here's my response...to those of us that live and breath everything GD, the names Barlow, Hunter, Ramrod, Parish, Rosie etc. are as recognizable as Lebron, Clinton, Bush, Travolta etc.
The rest of the world hasn't a clue who these people are tho. A friend of mine who's seen the GD around 50 times and named his daughter Cassidy didn't know who Barlow was. I know...crazy to us who have read every book / lyric associated with the band.
I'll leave you with this...most of the world has absolutely no idea who Bob Weir is.

That's pathetic! They needed everyone in the audience to start yelling "Cassidy!!!!!!!" at them!

I left after the fourth song of the setlist and they still hadn't played any of his songs :lol: i don't think anyone in the audience knew/cared. that's crazy about your friend boxorain

I go see a local cover band a couple times a year that plays a very straight forward rock style with NO transitions

So u will get scarlet but no fire

Just eyes...no estimated

But they throw in a couple JGB tunes so they are excused...

A fun cheap nite out with nice friends still beats passing out on the couch at 930 any night of the week

I need a show...
