Ramblings on Music, Texas, Etc.: Best Albums of 2008: #6 Drive-By Truckers - 'Brighter Than Creation's Dark':

"Once again, Drive-By Truckers made inclusion in the annual list inevitable. How else to measure a new DBT album than by the number of cuts that are destined to be noted as 'classics' in the future? If so, there's a good half-dozen or more on the sprawling 19-track monster that is Brighter Than Creation's Dark."

Daytrotter: Hold Steady/Drive By Truckers: Demand And Crave Liquor And A Crowd:

"Will rock and roll be in our history books?

You couldn’t escape the question tonight in Los Angeles, the final stop of the Drive-By Truckers/Hold Steady dual-headline tour entitled, righteously, “Rock and Roll Means Well.”"

Great cum of Year in List from Ed over on the DBT Yahoo Board. Ed also has one of the best sig lines of the year.

dbts : Message: Lists of Year end Lists:

"I'm sure I'm not the only one that loves lists of the best books, music, movies and what have you at the end of each year. There is a site I have visited every year for the last few years that compiles lists from all over the internets. It's a fun resource.

Ed, always here to help

Evel Knievel hurt himself for you."

Muscle Shoals Sound

Swampers reflect on 'Sweet Home' shout-out | | Florence, AL:

"While Shoals music fans may be aware of the Swampers' accomplishments, how they came to be mentioned in one of the most popular rock songs ever might not be."

Recording studio moving to downtown Sheffield | | Florence, AL:

"Jimmy Nutt is bullish on Sheffield.

The recording engineer who has worked with the likes of Jimmy Buffett and The Drive-By Truckers is doing what the city's redevelopment authority would like to see more of: He's investing in downtown Sheffield."

"That famous philosopher (and banjo picker) Steve Martin once said, ''Talking about music is like dancing about architecture."

Was it worth it dude? Really?!?

Whatever sentence they give you, Axl Rose should get triple for birthing that POS to the world.

Let us never speak of Chinese Democracy again.

Blogger pleads guilty to G N' R leak:

"A man accused of leaking nine unreleased tracks from the Guns N' Roses album 'Chinese Democracy' has pleaded guilty to a federal copyright violation."
