    Looks like Dickey is recovering from surgery to relieve pressure on his brain... good news! One of my childhood heros. He is why I bought my Custom 22 in dark cherry burst in 2000. Saw pictures of him playing one in my guitar magazines...

    I've lived in a lot of places, but in "The 80's", I lived in Florida. If you liked in Florida and liked hard rock and were old enough to get into the clubs, there was one band down there that was HUGE, and they went by the name of STRANGER. (Today I think the only surviving member is Greg Billings of the band bearing the same name.) They were one of those bands where the crowd knew every song and sang along. Even more remarkable than that, if you were in a cover band in Florida during the 80's, your band was playing STRANGER cover tunes. STRANGER had the following and perks of a national or international act, except they were just in Florida. Everybody LOVED them! Here is a video of their biggest "hit"... Swamp Woman.

    I grew up in the hot bed of 80s rock, Iowa! Our local residents that should have been bigger was Lynn Allen. Love these guys circa '85. Nothing Southern about them, though.

    Does the rock get harder the farther West you go?

    I find it no small coincidence that both guitarists appear to be playing Dean Dimebag model guitars... aCk!!!

    Also no coincidence that the initials of the band as well as that for which Dime's nickname came about are two dots which can be connected.

    It does if it's got a husky ginger singer that does what looks like his best to channel his inner Phil Anselmo and a couple of Dimebag fanboys that should have at least flipped a coin to see who got to play their DBD Sig guitar for their video shoot that day. But yeah...it's totally possible that they do rock harder...they most definitely metal groove pretty hard, and they were obviously touched by the cowboys from hell at some point.

    That’s just not a true statement on the Crowes, Bill. That’s probably true for the first album as far as the stones/faces reference. Some of their stuff is straight rock, but there’s plenty of southern influences there too.

    Doesn't Dave Matthews live in Virginia? Southern Rock? Uh... no, I don't think so.

    What style of music is that anyway? It certainly isn't Chesapeake Gumbo.

    A couple of more modern ones...
    Hopefully at least borderline within the genre :)
