I agree db9, when I saw him in Columbus it was very vanilla......boring show

I do really like his first album however.....

-EP

Heres the deal
As a good deal of you know Ive been to hundreds upon hundreds of rock shows over the last 3 decades.

Ive been very fournate for having an older brother-(Mr Deep) that worked close in the music industry that weaned me on good music and Ive been lucky to see intricate ecclectic live acts perform up close for free, along w/major acts up close live for free.

Musically speaking,Ive been spoiled

From the BuzzCocks and Clash-
Neil Young, Yes and Zepplin luckily Ive seen I ve seen alot of talent.

Pete Yorn is talented for sure.
I think he is over-hyped a bit.
Maybe w/this over-hyping I expected more.

I saw-
shades of Eddie Vedder
shades of Neil Young
shades of Jim Morrison
shades of Kurt Cobain.

I was looking for the "real Pete Yorn to please stand up"...
He never arrived.

I saw nothing really original. I enjoyed a few of his songs esp a Ramones song he covered.

I saw an artist that has been packaged well and and will prolly make it.
Pete Yorn reminded me of a deecnt garage band.
Pete was not the 2nd coming of Jesus as I was told.
Pete Yorn needs a hair cut.

thank you-
diamond
bruno.

i was really dissapointed in his live act and his second album, maybe I expected too much after musicforthemorningafter, which I still consider an excellent album.

Oh well, there certainly are alot worse shows to see.....

Or he's just a guy who plays rock music. So much has been made of artists being innovative or groundbreaking over the past few years that it's nice just hearing a performer play straight ahead songs.

that is funny, i saw a lot of people, both male and female in their mid 30's and early 40's at this show. not one person around me or in the balcony above were sitting.

it is nice to see an artisit who is not huge yet but can put on a good rock show.

Pete Yorn did not take me to 'that other place'..
Tom Petty has been playing straight rock n roll for 3 decades.
Tom Petty needs a hair cut too

Im sorry,Pete Yorn "Has been done already".

Until all you 20 yr olds realize what ever I say goes and that Iam your Daddy you will remain in your conflicted states
