As the band progressed even before Roi's passing they took more of a traditional solo spot in the songs, and then once 08 came around it seemed Boyd was just playing 3-4 times a night in his featured songs, and not the rest of the show as much...

Boyd is why I started listening to this band. I thought his style of playing mixed with the music was so intriguing and different.. I dont miss the skree's either, especially in the last decade as they became more noticeable..

And agreed on Jeff too, Jeff is a more dynamic player and defintely more of a "trained" musician... I really liked his contributions in 08-10 before they decided to reel him in or he reeled himself if. #41 was just a blast those first couple years. After finding out Roi was not a #41 fan, it just brought so much fun energy to that song.
100%.. Boyd and Roi were the bookends if you will. You can replace the sax and violin with electric guitar, trumpet, oboe and so on but that doesn't mean they sound better. But those bookends that started with the band were the reasons why i started listening too.. It was so wild to have a sax/violin in an alternative band back in those days. I was into hiphop and RnB bc i didn't like alternative at the time and i heard DMB and was completely flipped on my musical tastes in a period of weeks while absorbing the Big 3.

You're right.. back then they played more together and fluidly while transitioning into solos... now, as my friend says, "its your turn, ok, now my turn and now lets make a lot of noise on this part." haha i try to fight that but the more i do the more i realize its true.

    Oh yea!... taking any emotion out of my feelings for Boyd and moving on from that, a new violinist is what this band needs. I have no doubt the naysayers would come around after hearing/seeing them for the first time.

    Dmb needs to return to a 5 piece. Buddy, Tim and especially rashawn need to move on.

    That’s never going to happen but it would be a breath of fresh air.

    They need to be a 3 piece now like back in the old days. It's time. Tim, Carter and Stefan. It would really be refreshing.

    Throw dave in and it might actually work!

    In seriousness, an acoustic quartet would be really cool for a tour. Dave, Carter, Stefan, Tim.

    I agree, or a Dave & Tim & Stefan tour. Always wondered why Fonz didn't join D&T more often than the one or two shows in '96 or '97

    I think the current lineup has the band in a really great place and I wouldn't want it altered in any way...Buddy fits in perfectly with DMB

    I wonder if they'll do another 2 sets and do just that. I agree about Buddy. He's an awesome fit and love his sound.

    A Tim, Victor & Carter tour would be really something to hear.

    Dave, Tim, and Stefan on an acoustic bass would be interesting.

    That would be cool but it wouldn't be the same without Fonz

    Yes, it's awesome. They did a few shows in the 90s, check out Warehouse 10.3(?)

    Interesting, although it would be the Carter Victor show Iím afraid.

    Carter and Victor are on a completely differently level and Tim can usually only feel it for 10-30 seconds before he fades (in a band setting. D&T, heís a different animal).
