Unimpressed with that demo Andrew put up today.

It's a 1 take, live in the studio jam, not a demo.

Sounded killer, especially for a live jam session.

What I thought was funny about Mitch's story, is that some of it mirrored Gary's.

Both Mitch & Gary say that when they saw DLR go on TV with them, that A- they were under the impression that THEY were in the band and B- they thought it was a bad idea.

How could both Gary & Mitch think, at the same time, that they were in the band?

They played it, and discussed it, on the Howard Stern show today. Howard said "it doesn't matter who the f*ck sings the song, listen to Eddie's playing, it's genius".

Personally I didn't care for it, IMO he was too screechy and over doing it a bit....less is more in a lot of cases.

I heard it on Howard 100 as well this morning. I agree with your criticism's concerning MM's over-singing. I did think he sounded a bit like GC in a few places in the song.

If THAT were true, Gary Cherone would still be in the band.

Howard Stern's comments are still relevant? Were they ever?

Agreed! I stand corrected. This track sounds awesome. What a voice!

The answer is never. Stern went head to head in Indy a few years back with Bob and Tom. Bob and Tom are still there.

It sounds like the music from the song "That's Why I Love Ya" that was left off of VH III
