Always surprising to hear Derek speak. He's very well spoken. Strange he chooses never to sing on stage

"If you're not making somebody mad, you're not trying hard enough."--Derek


Based on the reaction of some DTB fans, I guess Derek is definitely trying hard enough

I honestly think Derek sees the criticism of TTB as validation in a sense. The more certain elements of his fanbase resist it, the more certain he is that he is doing something right.

So pissing off his loyal fanbase that that has stuck with him his entire career is "doing something right?"

Doesnt make sense to me.

Chuck, if music pisses you off, you may need a bit of a reset...

It's only a portion of the fanbase and IMO dTb shows from 2000-2009 had plenty of music in the sames styles that TTB plays. There is less of the "out-there" instrumental stuff for sure, but I chuckle when I hear criticism that there isn't enough guitar work / soloing / focus on Derek at a TTB show.

Lots of folks loved dTb and are enjoying TTB too. If you aren't a fan of Susan T's voice, then I can understand why you don't like TTB. That would apply to any group where you someone doesn't like the lead singer.

In other words, whenever you go in a new direction or step outside of your traditional comfort zone, you are bound to alienate some who liked what you were doing before. If you don't, you likely haven't forged anything different. I like TTB, but don't love it. Some tunes I really hook into, and others I rarely listen to. The same goes for DTB, however. I love to hear Derek play in either case, but I'm not enamored with either singer. I like them both alright.
I have a lot of respect for the way they've made a career work so tightly with their family; touring as a family, recording studio in the back yard, etc. It is admirable. And although, the DTB is not touring, several albums worth of music is available to us. No complaints here.

In one early interview - maybe the Hittin' the Note one in 2010 - Derek mentioned that he's changed direction several times before and lost a bunch of fans every time. It hasn't deterred him from doing what he felt he needed to do. His first band played straightforward blues rock. Then he started playing more jazz and Indian stuff and lost a bunch of his audience but kept at it. Later they started playing more song-oriented, less jammy stuff. They lost fans, kept at it, and got bigger. I probably left out a step or two but that was the general idea. There are some people who've been with them the whole time, but it's a few. And how is this relationship really supposed to work anyway? 'I've bought your music, so you have to keep doing stuff I like instead of trying to grow as an artist?'

Their attitude seems to be that you have to keep pushing yourself and testing yourself, and if you do the right things you'll find an audience. It sounds like TTB has done that. From what I can tell they've been very successful in their first couple of years.

I didn't like TTB in the first few months. A year later it was unbelievable. Now its even better.

At the same time, 1999 DTB shows at the Grand Emporium in KC where I got to stand 2 feet away from Derek and Bill McKay are some of my greatest musical experiences and memories of my life. Derek used to do things that simply blew my mind and left me speechless.

In the present time, Derek continues to simply blow my mind and leave me speechless.

That's also true. This band is different, but it's not THAT different. To hear some people tell it he was playing free jazz and now he's playing pop country. There are plenty of elements in this band's sound that were also part of the dTb sound, and if you look back at Already Free in particular you can see some hints about where they were going. There's also the earlier Soul Stew tour and the fact that they added a horn section on Roadsongs.

"Enjoying it"....I wouldn't say I enjoy it, tolerate it is more like it. I go to these shows because I don't think I could live with myself if I missed a chance to hear/see Derek perform.

I don't mind Susan's voice, when she sings ..it's the screaming that turns me off, completely. But there's a price to pay there as well. "Singing" usually means a, s l o w ballad, which puts me to sleep.

At the risk of repeating an oft written opinion, the STB & the DTB worked for me, not only because the DTB had become my new musical "Fix", but also because it was a jazzy, rock fusion, sans Susan and her Imho, very average guitar playing....There was separation. If Susan's band rolled through town, I would go as well and I would enjoy it, but it wasn't even close to the dtb experience. Same goes for "Soul Stew", another chance to hear Derek. Add, I really miss Mike M's vocals!

TTB is one righteous band as was DTB. I'm real glad they enjoy being together and playing together in the same band. It's their life and business and I'm happy if they are happy.

Finally watched last night, so thanks Pete.

I really liked how Derek was honest about another ABB album (unlike some people!).

That's pretty convoluted thinking. I am sure Derek (or any other musician) would be happiest if their fans shared their vision and direction. Losing fans because you have changed the nature of your music does not mean it's "better", only that it's different (whether it's "better" or "worse").

He does not need disgruntled fans to know that the TTB is nothing like the DTB.

The larger venues and bigger crowds that TTB plays to is also enough evidence that something has changed. It does not mean the music is "better"or "worse" just that it appeals to a different audience. In this case (and in my opinion) an older, more middle of the road audience who like song oriented music with short guitar solos and a pretty woman out front.

Nobody said it's better if you lose fans. I think he's talking about challenging yourself, doing what you want to do, and trying to grow as an artist as opposed to doing the safe thing and trying to please people who already like you. The fact that some people are upset and not willing to come along is being taken as evidence that this is a big change and not just a safe move. That's supposed to be the important thing.

I don't think anyone who has seen the DTB and TTB needs to be convinced that the move was a major change rather than a "safe" move.

First - what a great interview. I wish it would have lasted longer and I was glued to the screen as he was talking about ABB and the Beacon. As an attendee you know how you feel about it but I often wonder the band's take. Wonderful to hear how special it is to them.
Second - I saw TTB for the first time at Wanee and was blown away by the talent in that band. To me having Derek in ABB where he and Warren can just tear it up and then have him in TTB with more traditional songs, horns and Susan's vocals is perfect in that it provides a showcase for Derek in a variety of settings. The perfect balance imho.
