These guys are playing the Beach Boardwalk in Santa Cruz for free this Friday night and I want to go. Don't know much about them at all, don't own anything, but I always thought the tune in this link was a great one. Anyone know how good the current band is? The singer in this video, Shannon Hoon, died of a cocaine overdose way back in 1995.

Great band. That whole album is top notch but they never did anything after the singer died. His voice was so distinct so it would be tough to imagine them playing with another singer.

Being at the show last night completely disproved your comments. Their new singer is AWESOME.............Travis Warren. They did two sets, the first 50 minutes, the second one hour, and they BURNED the entire way. I've got video to prove it and will post along with a review once I get them up to youtube. FYI, Warren is also a very talented acoustic guitarist, although he mostly just sings. He did Dylan's Don't Think Twice solo on guitar..............it was great! If these guys come through your town, go see them! It was a free show; I'd easily pay $30 to see them.

Check out my review and youtubes on "anything goes".

And all three had a lead singer who either OD'd or committed suicide. Great bands.........but somehow all had a seminal member just could not handle his fame..............tragic, indeed.
