    I don't know. Lyrics are much less important to me than the music, but Rooftop's lyrics seems to be inoffensive at worst. I don't have a problem with them at all. And as long as Dave's lyrics aren't cringe-worthy, I'm fine.

    Cringe-worthy/awkward off the top of my head (at least a phrase or two in each song):

    Funny
    Hunger
    Cornbread
    Dreamgirl
    Belly Belly Nice
    Dive In
    Seven
    Smooth Rider

    Gaucho's gotta be on your list. It's their most cringe worthy song to date, hands down, IMO.

    Totally agree with this. gaucho is awful. worst song on AFTW. the lyrics to drunken solider aren't far behind and are terribly lame as well. don't like either song at all but at least drunken solider has the cool intro and the darkside of the moon stuff at the end. it's just those few minutes in the middle where he sings that i cant stand the song.

    Jamal Millner and Joe Lawlor are probably my favorite 2 electric guests.

    i really enjoy when lawlor comes out. i wish they would let him do it every night being that he's there every night. he's a cool dude. i met him after one of the camden shows a couple years ago in a bar. got to talk to him for like 25 minutes. told me a little bit about life on the road with the band. said that dave makes sure that the crew is taken care of (so there is likely truth to the no red rocks because the crew hates it story). i asked him about him guesting and he said its only when dave comes to him and asks him to play that night.

    I've always seem his name on the packaging of live releases as recording engineer and wondered if it was just coincidence and it was actually a different person. I wish they'd let him play more. He's got a really good feel for the songs and that makes sense being he's at every show

    Nah, I've always like Gaucho, including the kids' chorus. Not great lyrics, but the verses are pretty good.

    I don't remember the general reaction on Ants, but mine was, after watching it live on Fallon (?), "Really? That is the song you choose to debut on national TV?"

    Seemed like such a nothing little song then, but now I really like it. Love it on AFTW.

    yep, same guy. its kind of odd being at a show when he guests. you see him on stage running lines and setting stuff up, then you see him tinker with his guitar for a few minutes before going back to setting stuff up. then 2 hours later he comes out and plays with the band. then an hur after that he's tearing the rig down.


    i think he is also the guy who writes the road crew notes that dmbalmanac has on some of the show pages.

    I'm here because I really enjoy the other sections of the message board. Lots of interesting discussion. DMB is just a small part of this board.

    I don't mind anyones opinion. Just a question on why waste your time on something you hate. 90s are over, get over it.
