Do you like THE WALLFLOWERS?

The Wallflowers and U2 are my two fav bands (in no special order, I love both). That's the reason why they always "appear" at the end of my posts. There are 4 records:

~ The Wallflowers (1992)



~ Bringing Down The Horse (1996)



~ (Breach) - 2000



~ Red Letter Days (2002)



yeah, I 'borrowed' the cover pics from their site...hmm...I've seen the last pic somewhere... hehe

They are very talented and so awesome! I've been to a show and it was great, no words can describe how amazing their shows are.

btw, they are gonna be special guests of the Counting Crows during the next month in San Francisco and Los Angeles. More info in their official site:

http://www.wallflowers.com/index_main.html

I wish I could go...

You can also read the lyrics and articles, watch the videos, send a question to Jakob Dylan (the singer), and if you go to their message board, you'll be welcome , I live there too, hehe but I use another sn...

If you are interested in them, just tell me and I'll give you some interesting links.


I The Wallflowers!

I like what I've heard by them. They're definitely a good band.

Plus, it doesn't hurt that they like Tom Petty. .

I think they're pretty good Jakob's not bad to look at either

I heard their cover of Into The Mystic this weekend on the radio, and thought it was beautiful

I totally agree, The Wallflowers rock! and their shows are amazing, they and U2 are my 2 fav bands. RLD is such a cool record! I think it's one of those cds everyone should have...

I love the Wallflowers for sharing their amazing talent with us, being awesome guys, posting in their board (I was really surprised the first time I saw their posts, they made me register ), the q&a with Jakob (you can send questions to him), Greg's picks (he has a great taste in music), the shows (awww, so many good memories...). I have friends who have met them and they all say the WF are very nice guys. I would like to go to another show...why I'm not living in LA? *sigh*

btw, have you seen their new guitar player? he is great! Much love to Yogi!!



Yogi (guitar), Greg (bass) and Fred (drums)



Rami (keyboards), Jakob (voice, guitar) and Greg (bass)



I've always liked their music, but I'm addicted to them since I went to a show in February, aawww, I was in front row, just in front of Jakob, and I have one of Yogi's guitar picks! yeah! That was so awesome...

yeah, I know the WF are cute, but the most important thing is their amazing talent. And I live in the Invisible City...

Yeah! I'm a fan since I listened to BDTH for the first time! If you have RLD too, I'm sure you'll love "(Breach)". "Sleepwalker" is such a great song...

The first album has a different sound, they had a different 'style', but it's cool too.
