: Mike cannot sing...and in all honesty, they remind me of a bland version of Bro4..and
: that's not fair to the Bro4. I also was horrified that they didn't know who wrote
: "Good Year"..and to hear them say that it really was Nick's band just
: burns me. Also, if you know so much..why can't you name more than ONE song that John
: Stewart wrote before he joined the group?
: It also is TOO self-congratulatory..and a whole lot of how great they are on
: stage....and it's sad that with this new lineup, the sheer joy of playing the music
: from a fan standpoint is gone..and it seems like they really don't want to try to up
: their game..or their knowledge...they are coasting on the memory of Nick

: Josh sounds like Nick. Somebody has fair guitar skills, at least for people being
: introduced to the music. They sing in a nice variety of keys and timings, but
: unfortunately all at the same time. You know, they're not unpleasant to listen to,,
: but they're only about as good as the kids I sang with in the student union, in
: 1968. I would strongly suggest they have an impartial vocal coach work with them.
: Remember, Dave, Bob, and Nick could all sing, but Frank required them to practice 18
: hours a day. It just might be that two of them stay together and find a better
: third member. The professional sound is absent. They sound fun, they sound relaxed
: and comfortable. They just don't sound really good.
