Re: “Rodgers, Beck and Wilson prove they aren't too old to rock

First time to see Jeff Beck and I wasn't disappointed. Jeff does know his way around a guitar and his drummer is no slouch, either. His drummer has a great reputation in his own right. I would have preferred to have only had one other artist on the bill so Jeff could have played longer, but I'll guess having a couple of other names was to help sell tickets. Ann voice is good and her band was impressive. Doing all but one cover was actually nice. I've always thought Paul Rodgers is a good singer, too, but maybe because it was after Jeff's performance, I was ready to go after a few songs. If Jeff was playing 1:45-2hrs a night, I would have made the trip to Atlanta 3-days later for another round.

Re: “Cover bands — making money off those with talent

Yep! I agree with all of this.

The worst thing is the audience or the fans who associate the stolen song with the performer.

It gets complicated too... Some artists are not cover artists yet they sing songs written by others.

If a cover version is an improvement, then it's difficult to criticise.

Re: “Wolf Alice delights, energizes Charlotte crowd

Great band, really glad they're playing in places like Charlotte on this tour. One thing is the penultimate song before the encore is "Visions of a Life".

Re: “Cover bands — making money off those with talent

I just wish the Charlotte crowd would go to shows of original music. I used to be in a cover band and we always had a decent turnout and got paid. The same is not true now that I'm in an original band. It's a struggle to get people to come and see you here. We have better luck in other cities. And it's not just my band. I went to a show last week of a pretty good band and I was the only person who showed up. It's all about demand. If people would show up to original music, maybe venues like the Visualite would take a chance on more local bands. It would help if Creative Loafing would write more articles about underground bands that don't fit into a typical mainstream genre.

Re: “Cover bands — making money off those with talent

Here is my take as a musician and writer of almost 40 years. Most of the cover bands I saw at local bars when I was in my 20's (in the 80's & 90's most if not all venues in St. Paul were cover venues and the good original music was happening in Minneapolis and I stopped watching cover bands a long time ago ) were mediocre at best. Some seriously had trouble even playing their instruments or vocalizing and that was early on in the 1st set so I don't think it was alcohol to blame. Occasionally on their breaks I would go up to various members and talk to them because I guess I felt some sort of kinship with them. When they found out I was also a musician and a writer they would usually say they wish they could write original music or they had already composed a song or two but were having trouble with the lyrics and so on. The bell in my head didn't go off until years later that maybe the main reason they were doing covers is that they lacked the ability to write. Just because one can play an instrument or sing doesn't mean one is also able to create something from nothing. With some cover bands I saw that did "write" and mix original music in, well quite honestly it was better that they stuck with 100% covers if you know what I mean. Comparing what the Beatles or the Stones did with covers and the current situation of music is pointless and somewhat dangerous. The culture of music was completely different then. In the late 50's and early 60's it was just becoming acceptable to musicians to write their own material and even then. If you wanted work you were expected to do a lot of popular covers. In the last 2 to 3 decades a band can go into a local venue, draw 20 or 25 people playing 100% of their own songs and be just fine. I was last in a cover band about 10 years ago with my current guitarist/vocalist whom I play original music with now. I don't believe either types of bands or venues are taking money from the other. In Minnesota, most of the cover bars are concentrated in the suburbs and small towns where as the venues that do original music are mainly in downtown Minneapolis and a few in St. Paul. Those who enjoy hearing covers probably aren't interested in a band playing their own music and vice versa. Having said that we don't in my opinion have the music scene like we did when The Replacements, Husker Du, Soul Asylum or Prince were playing around town. Much of that may be due to local bands going on the road to actually attempt making a living so only part time bands stay behind. I think the other half is the venues themselves not devoting a enough time and effort into promotion to get people off their asses and away from Netflix on a Friday or Saturday to make stars out of some of the local bands. The talent is there and I know because I book my band and find other bands for the bill and we have played with some phenomenal acts that are still unknown.

Hi, guys - Your dad was able to hook me up live and it sounded great. Wish I could have played it through the iPad so it was bigger, or better yet had been therein person. If I had known he was going I would have had him pick me up. Love you, grandma.

Re: “Scowl Brow Singer Robby Hale Burns Cross, Posts Pic to Facebook

I'm really disappointed in Creative Loafing for printing this article. I guess with what was going on in Charlottesville at the time you needed to get something out quick to remain relevant and trendy. Truth is Robby is a good guy. He just likes to go against the grain so to speak and push buttons to get a rise. He would give you the last dollar out of his pocket to make sure you got home safe after a night of drinking no matter what color/sex you are. Bringing up a picture that is almost 2 years old without knowing the facts - ambulance chasing journalism at its finest. I guess everyone that has called him out and talked bad has a squeaky clean past and has never said or done anything they regret.

Re: “Listen Up: Special Edition of 'Local Vibes' Discusses Bigotry and Inclusivity in CLT Music Scene

It's amazing how some of these folks on here are blaming the current administration for the problems we are having now. Last year under the former administration BLM was marching in the streets chanting "What do we want? Dead Cops". What did we get last year? A whole bunch of police officers assasinated in cold blood, hate crimes. What did Obama do? Well he invited BLM to the White House! Obama inviting people to the White House who called for the death of police is way worse than a drunk guy having fun with a burning pallet made into a cross and making a stupid Facebook comment. But I'm sure no one on this panel see it that way because the media treats Obama like he walks on water when he's really more like a slithering snake. All over social media these days you see "I wish all white people would die" etc etc. I seriously doubt any of the SJW's on this podcast make a big deal out of comments like that when they see them because it doesn't fit their agenda. An agenda brought to you by Elites who are purposefully trying to separate us. The person who brought the Facebook photo to light after 2 years wanted to spread hate against someone he hated, plain and simple. Especially after the tragedy that happened in Charlottesville, that was a super lame move and even more lame of CL to publish it at the time they did. Some of y'all are pointing out the splinter in Robby's eye and don't see the 2x4 in your own.

You seem offended. Maybe you will just label me a 'racist nazi' because I'm not in line with your judging left. If your a stand up person Robby will have your back no matter your skin color.

This guy has been a bigot and a bully around town for years. No one took a public stand against him or his clique of bro-nazi rednecks. As a community we can't continue to give these fuckheads a pass. He's not the only one in the scene who proudly uses the N word. Don't believe his bullshit cop-out "some of my best friends are black."

Re: “Remembering Stevie Ray Vaughan - 20 years later

I was, also, at the 7/7/90 concert in Holmdel. I was lucky enough to first sit in the lighting booth with Eddie, the lighting guy, and his girl Laura, who was my friend. I was also on his bus that afternoon and got to meet him as I was exiting his bus. Then, after he was finished playing, Eddie, Laura and I walked across the stage to sit stage right for Joe...I just sat down on the black stage luggages when the bandshell fell! I had just walked under it! The concert went on but SRV was freaking backstage! About halfway through Joe's stint, SRV came over to Eddie, Laura and me to discuss the damage with Eddie. He had calmed down by then and stayed with us until Joe was finished......memory of a lifetime!
