Fuck that guy. Everyone knows it's Robert Cray.

You should discuss Clapton with them next.
BigSteveBigSteve on Last Man Standing: Band of Brothers (or Sisters or…)
Pub trivia is my jam, and games resumed a month or so ago. I'm part of a group that runs a music-only trivia game every Monday night, and this past week was my first chance to host and write the questions. Thanks to this thread on RTH I had a pool of information to write two categories, and I thought I'd share the questions. Brothers 1. Which band was named after three brothers – Barry, Maurice, and Robin? (The Bee Gees) 2. I would walk 500 miles to avoid Craig & Charlie Reid. (The Proclaimers) 3. Which band has three brothers and a cousin, all surnamed Followill? (Kings of Leon) 4. Liam & Noel Gallagher (Oasis) 5. Name the group built around brothers Josh, Jake, and Sam Kiszka. (Greta van Fleet) 6. Which boy band had brothers Jordan and Jonathan Knight? (New Kids on the Block) 7. Eddie on guitar and Alex on drums. (Van Halen) 8. Isaac on guitar, Taylor on keyboards, Zac on drums, and all of them on vocals. (Hanson) 9. BONUS Name all members of the Jackson 5, not including Randy. (Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael) 10. BONUS Name all five Osmonds, not including Jimmy. (Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny) Sisters 1. Which vocal group had two sisters who were the daughters of Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys? Wilson-Philips. 2. Ann and Nancy Wilson. (Heart) 3. Name the two sisters in the Bangles. (Debbi and Vicki Peterson) 4. June, Bonnie, and Anita. (The {Pointer Sisters) 5. Martie Maguire and Emily Strayer are sisters who use their married names in the band they founded in 1989. 6. Contemporary indie pop duo Tegan and Sara are twins. What is their last name? (Quin) 7. Debbie, Joni, Kim, and Kathy are the sisters in this R&B/disco vocal group. (Sister Sledge) 8. BONUS June Millington and her sister Jean led one of the first successful all-female rock outfits. (Fanny) 9. BONUS Name the three sisters in Haim. (Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim) Btw Bonus questions are intended to be harder, because the team that chooses to answer a Bonus question gets double points.

The Gibson Brothers, who were, apparently, the Francfort brothers

cam, I got into the same SRV argument with two in-laws. They were raving about and grooving to hIm when I said (admittedly looking to provoke) that he was unoriginal and I could reel off 20 better guitarists without thinking or pausing for breath. 10 years later the discussion still periodically rears it’s head.

Disgust was the word, I guess I’m finally going to have to figure out how to disable spell Czech

I put several ZZ Top songs on at the bar I was lubricating myself at this afternoon and made sure to digest one and all with the story of “the pleaser”

The Hawkins brothers believe in a thing called love, in their band, "the Darkness."

Mrs H objects to music, especially the kind of music I enjoy, being played in the house. When we met she owned about three CDs, Queen's Greatest Hits, Return to the Forbidden Planet soundtrack and some panpipe music she bought from a busker. She accompanied me to Glastonbury before we got married and objected to every act I took her to see apart from a couple of comedians, John Otway, and a very fine band called the Lost T Shirts of Atlantis who deserved more than they ever got. Oasis were completely beyond the pale, we missed Pulp's legendary appearance, and she made me take her home before Page and Plant appeared, although they were running about three hours late. The last gig I took her to was Gorkys Zygotic Myncki, which I enjoyed but she ran away and sat in the bar. Despite such provocation, we remain together and tolerate one another's peculiarities. I made the fatal error of admitting to my the first girl I loved that Duran Duran weren't to my taste and she never seemed so keen on my company afterwards. If I'd fallen out with everyone who ever declined an invitation to accompany me to a Fall gig,. I'd have no friends left. The great unrequited love of my life did come to see them with me at a festival, and stayed for more than half of their set, which left me adoring her more than ever.

1. A guy I am tangentially related to one time try to claim that punk was "invented" in England. I shut the conversation down very quickly but I think he actually believed that, and he totally got a rise out of me. . 2. I got into an argument with a customer at one time while I was bartending because he said it he thought Stevie Ray Vaughan was the greatest blues guitarist of all time.

Back in the 80s the Gatlin Brothers (Larry, Steve, & Rudy) were big on the country charts.
Crackblind on Last Man Standing: Band of Brothers (or Sisters or…)
I once had to seriously restrain myself from getting into it with an old co-worker's fiance who insisted that The Ramones were brothers. Which brings me around to Sibling Rivalry, Joey & his brother Mickey Leigh's band.

Not even an hour ago a friend forwarded me this Facebook poll with the note that it was one of the first questions I asked him. I have absolutely no recollection of that (it's been over 30 years) but I guess he answered correctly because we are still friends. I'm just hoping the question doesn't cause any schisms in these here parts! https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=343458760607574&id=108724400747679 Side note: I like the header photo but these days, this is what I think of when someone mentions Country Ham: https://thewhiskeywash.com/reviews/whiskey-review-bookers-bourbon-country-ham-batch-2019-03/

I call out EPG to call out BigSteve on his casual dismissal of the fabulously successful Journey. 50,000,000 Steve Perry fans can't be wrong!
BigSteveBigSteve on Falling Out
Not so much a falling out as hvb's "suspicions about romantic incompatibility." A guy I was interested in a ways back was ten years younger than me (my first mistake). When I got around to asking him who his favorite band was, he said "Journey." Ouch. I think I literally winced. He was actually not really into music at all, and Journey was just the band that was popular when he was in college, so he had fond memories. Still it was obviously not to be.
cherguevaracherguevara on Last Man Standing: Band of Brothers (or Sisters or…)
Another popular family band is Clannad. (But Devo is a much better answer.)
hrrundivbakshihrrundivbakshi on Falling Out
Speaking for myself in real life, there have been many occasions when my suspicions about romantic incompatibility were confirmed by a partner's shitty taste in the arts -- and music in particular. A small number of you know that I was married once, before my very happy betrothal to the wonderful Ms. Bakshi. This first wife, though in possession of some mind-bending attributes that kept me hangin' on much longer than I should've, liked a number of artists that were serious red flags. One in particular was a crappy 90s band called "Guster," about whom I remember nothing except a deep, abiding hatred — and the Verve Pipe, which -- okay, look, I'm sorry for being petty, but just look at this guy's hair, willya? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1umEXpGHc0E In retrospect, I should've paid attention to the warning signals these two artists were emitting.

Do you mean aside from when Garlic Salt and EPG were touting the virtues of Meatloaf a few weeks back? How bad does the falling out have to be?

I can't believe this thread made it this far without anyone mentioning the Mothersbaugh AND Casale brothers in DEVO. Cdm mentioned DEVO in passing with no mention of this, so I AM the LMS!
cherguevaracherguevara on Last Man Standing: Band of Brothers (or Sisters or…)
The Corrs, which is a "family band."
H. MunsterH. Munster on Last Man Standing: Band of Brothers (or Sisters or…)
Bootsy and Catfish Collins of Funkadelic.

Happiness, I did not. Well played.
chickenfrank on Vaya Con Dios, Dusty
That is sad. They must certainly be in the top 5 for longevity of bands keeping their original members. I wonder if he realized before his death that he'd been pronouncing Tush incorrectly all those years.
Happiness StanHappiness Stan on Last Man Standing: Band of Brothers (or Sisters or…)
Just twigged that the original lineup of Sparks included Earl and Jim Mankey, a second set of brothers. CDM, did you intend for these to be included in your original post? If not, LMS!
Mr. ModeratorMr. Moderator on Vaya Con Dios, Dusty
You just beat me to it. I was going to post something simple from my phone. Sorry for your loss, HVB. Sincerely. He was a great...man!
cherguevaracherguevara on Mystery Date!
Interesting! I never would have connected Everclear with any Americana-type music.
chickenfrank on Mystery Date!
Hey, I remember them! I really like that Santa Monica song. "I am still living with your ..... ghost". That song is very catchy.
BigSteveBigSteve on Mystery Date!
I remember owning that Sparkle and Fade album, and I liked it fine, but they became deeply uncool for some reason. Actually I know the reason -- they were commercially successful.
cdmcdm on Mystery Date!
And your mystery date is..... The Easy Hoes, featuring Art Alexakis of Everclear fame. Art played guitar and wrote two songs for the only Easy Hoes album "Tragic Songs of Life". He rerecorded both songs for his next band Colorfinger (one is the middle song above). The rest of the album is a mix of originals and covers of songs by the Carter Family, the Louvin Brothers, Hank Williams, etc. Everclear never did that much for me. Their breakthrough "Santa Monica" was okay. I always thought it had a Springsteen's-younger-brother quality but I never heard anything by them that made me want to dig deeper. I would have liked to see the Easy Hoes in a bar though. I'll bet that would have been a fun night. Thanks for playing.

Everyone's favorite band, Barenaked Ladies, had a pair of brothers - the Creegans. LMS!
Mr. ModeratorMr. Moderator on Woo
I've been hiking around New Mexico, but for the record, my relationship with Sloan is simply that I got bored by their reliance on easy-does-it '70s rock moves. The last album I heard by them, from probably 10 years ago, was a winner.
chickenfrank on Woo
I like when the music stops and Lee Michaels gets to do a solo Woo in "Do You Know What I Mean".
mockcarrmockcarr on Woo
There’s a pretty good Woo in Hello Susie by the Move. You could have thrown the Mod that bone.
mockcarrmockcarr on Woo
The master of the Woo is I undoubtedly Little Richard. While Long Tall Sally is the most musical Woo, I am partial to the Woo quotient in Keep A Knockin.
H. MunsterH. Munster on Last Man Standing: Band of Brothers (or Sisters or…)
Link Wray's backing band, the Ray Men, included two of his brothers.

I assumed an antipodean was a mollusk.
mockcarrmockcarr on Woo
Pretty sure I know 4 from that clue now, but I will use the Mockcarr option.
mockcarrmockcarr on Woo
No - Money City Maniacs. That’s where that line is from.
mockcarrmockcarr on Woo
Good clue on 5, it’s Sloan. Is it The Good In Everyone?
hrrundivbakshihrrundivbakshi on Woo
2. — CORRECT! It’s from “She’s So Selfish.” 3. — CORRECT! 4. — You’ve actually seen me perform this song live 5. — INCORRECT! Clue: “And the joke is…”
cdmcdm on Woo
2. This one is driving me nuts. From the clue, I'll guess the Knack, but not one of the songs I listen to very much. The one about the monkey on his back? 3. Whole Lotta Rosie 4.I got nothing 5. I don't know much about the Tragically Hip and this doesn't sound like the handful of songs I've heard, so I go with BTO?
hrrundivbakshihrrundivbakshi on Woo
Sorry, the fist clue above is for woo #2.
hrrundivbakshihrrundivbakshi on Woo
#5: Mod has a love-hate (or is it a hate-hate?) relationship with this Canadian band.
hrrundivbakshihrrundivbakshi on Woo
#4: “Tryna make it REAL, ___________.”
hrrundivbakshihrrundivbakshi on Woo
#3: from a touching ode to the joys of sexual intercourse with morbidly obese antipodeans
hrrundivbakshihrrundivbakshi on Woo
Thanks for your Dogged persistence, cdm! Your clues follow: 1. Was this band the ultimate late-70s LA group, or just another failed attempt at seizing a lasting beachhead for “power pop” music?
chickenfrank on Mystery Date!
I haven't seen the Woodstock 99 documentary yet and have no memory of who played it besides RHCPs and Limp Bizkit. I'm sure I'm not going to get this.
cdmcdm on Mystery Date!
This band was in San Francisco around '87-'89 or so. The guitarist relocated to Portland OR (funny, I always thought they were an LA band) and went on to form a successful band in '91, although their breakthrough single didn't happen until their second album which was released in '95. They were initially a trio. They performed at Woodstock '99. Let me know if you want more clues or if you are ready to give up.
cherguevaracherguevara on Mystery Date!
Grrr... I had a post all typed and managed to delete it by accident. I hear a bar band where the playing outstrips the writing, which I suppose is the norm. As noted by others, it is well-recorded and produced, and I suppose the hints above would put this band in the late 90's, early 00's? I can't imagine what band a guitarist would go on to join or form... Porno for Pyros?
cdmcdm on Mystery Date!
These guys got the drop on Hayseed Dixie by over a decade, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were the inspiration for HD. If I can figure out the technology, I'll try to upload their version of the ACDC song, and the rest of the album if anyone is interested.
