There's Party Music, Then There's After The Party Music | WABX 107.5:
"That's where you'll find the Drive-By Truckers. If bands are tagged by chiches. their mantra might be 'Y'all ain't from around here, are you?' The greatest Southern party bands make you feel as if you're sitting back with a smile, surrounded by friends, and looking forward to the adventures you'll have before the night is over. DBT music is about when all the good liquor is gone, you're slumped like a millstone in someone's living room and you're drinking warm Boone's Farm because it's the only fucking thing these assholes have left in their cooler. We've been there -- when you decide this party sucks anyway, but you're too pissed and too wasted to get up and leave, which is okay because you have no where to go anyway."

The Gibson Interview: Drive-By Truckers’ Patterson Hood:
"Few contemporary bands have furthered southern rock traditions quite like the Drive-By Truckers. Beginning with their 2001 opus, Southern Rock Opera, the six-piece group settled on a three-guitar approach that’s involved personnel changes, but has never wavered in its ragged spirit."

Relix - Reviews - CDs - Drive-By Truckers: The Big To-Do:
"In 2009, the Drive-By Truckers spent time in the studio laying down tracks for what would turn into two separate releases. The Big To-Do, the first of the two albums, contains a batch of potent rockers with an edge that has been missing since the days of 2001’s Southern Rock Opera. The Big To-Do is an album that will draw you in on first listen. “Drag The Lake Charlie” juxtaposes a catchy, twisted tale against a punchy groove that would make Tom Petty proud. Other standout moments include *Shonna Tucker*’s tender vocals on the bittersweet “You Got Another” and the crunch of Paterson Hood and *Mike Cooley*’s guitars on “This Fucking Job.”"

After hearing arguments from local tourism directors as well as those in the music business, committee chairman Johnny Mack Morrow, D-Red Bay, said he planned to recommend the 1974 Lynyrd Skynyrd hit 'Sweet Home Alabama' instead of 'Stars Fell on Alabama.'"

Pink Floyd takes record company EMI to court | Raw Story:
"Their lawyer Robert Howe told the High Court that the dispute was about online royalties and whether EMI was entitled to sell individual tracks 'otherwise than in the original configuration of the Pink Floyd albums'.

He argued that this was 'expressly prohibited' under their contract but said EMI argued that the clause did not apply to online sales. The case is likely to run for days."
