A Thread For DMB* Questions/Facts

I thought we needed a place for people to ask random questions they might have about the facts involved in the history (and present) of DMB.

This isn't Fox News; we shouldn't require fact checkers, and we're not trying to spread misinformation. If someone asks a question, please know what you're talking about if you answer it.

There are no dumb questions, only DMB questions.

I'll start...

Did Dave ever live in the Pink Warehouse? I can't find a solid answer about that. I've read that he might have lived there. I've read that their first manager, Ross Hoffman, lived there and Dave would just spend a lot of time there. Anybody know?

Yeah, thats about the most I've ever been able to find about it. I have seen claims that he lived there, but it always seemed speculative. Never seen it mentioned by Dave or any other affiliation of the band.

The building is perhaps most famous as the site where, in 1991, the newly-formed Dave Matthews Band played its first official gig on the warehouse roof to a couple dozen people.

Matthews’ manager, Ross Hoffman, rented the bedroom next to Roulhac’s, and Matthews used to sit on the floor with his guitar and play his songs. Roulhac heard him through the wall.

That's funny, that's the same exact article I just read that prompted me to ask that question. Then there's this...

"Some have questioned Dave Matthew’s inspiration for the lyrics. There is a “Pink Warehouse” located in Charlottesville, Virginia where Dave worked and lived for some time. Dave was known for visiting that Warehouse from time to time and the roof of the pink warehouse was where Dave Matthews Band performed one of their very first shows."

Yeah, I have seen that on DBTP as well, that was the "speculation" I was speaking of. I just think that C-Ville Weekly article is about as factual as we will get short of a direct question and answer to Dave (nothing I have personally heard in interviews, doesn't mean it doesn't exist though). The fact that the publication actually rented space in the warehouse in the 90s adds a bit of credibility imo.
