Steve Lillywhite must like them enough to have produced three albums and an unreleased 4th.

I heard the VA bartending story. The story where he goes around the world searching for the best musicians sounds funny and more unlikely.

DMB has great lyrics for a lot of songs and crappy ones for others... not any different from ant other band. To be honest shallow doesn't always come to mind. He writes some "happy" songs but that shouldn't make a song shallow.

Dave Matthews' voice can either be a love- hate thing. Personally I enjoy it and a lot of times I view at as another instrument in terms of the way he sings.

Generalizing about DMB fans is just as bad as me generalizing about U2 fans. Not real cool IMO.

I like DMB and have a few albums and have been to one show. I plan to see them this summer too. But they are not, in my opinion on the same level as U2. What I'm most surprised is how many of these 17-21 year old fans of DMB know so little about U2. I mean, just look at U2s body of work before DMB was even a band!
Anyways, I'm looking forward to hearing the Lillywhite sessions since, from what I hear from the zealots, its what they should have released instead of Everyday. But I think Everyday is great as well.

Thanks DiGi--I think it will be great , especially since it's such a small venue (6,000 seats plus lawn area for 6,000...pretty intimate compared to the arenas they easily sell out).

I'm also looking forward to hearing the Lillywhite sessions...I don't care for Everyday at all (love the single, but not the album) so it'll be interesting to hear the other stuff.

I like many DMB songs, but never bought any of their records and don't really consider myself a "fan." However, I have never understand the hostility that many U2 fans have against this band. They're very talented musicians, Dave's voice is unusual, but I have never minded that in singers, as long as they sound sincere and the words they're singing aren't utter crap (see: Billy Corgan, Thom Yorke, Eddie Vedder, Bjork, etc). But of course, if you don't like the sound of something, you just don't like it, end of story. At the same time though, that doesn't mean they "suck," it just means you don't like them. As far as the lyrical content, at times Dave seems like he's trying too hard and throws a few too many cliches in the songs. Bono has written some crap lyrics in his day, too.

DMB is a fine band. Unfortunately most people make the mistake of judging their whole body of work based on a few songs they here on the radio. As many of you know, this is unfair for most bands. Some of DMB best work are album tracks. Good stuff IMO.
