    They suck. (but glad you enjoyed it). Did you go anywhere for a beer before the show? The old spots (P&G, etc.) spots are gone now.

    Could not agree more. Never heard a song of theirs I didn't go BLECH about pretty quick. Just don't like the style of the band. To each their own however.

    Babs and clean willie were in love they said
    So in love the preacher's face turned red
    Soon everybody knew the thing was dead
    He shouts, she bites, they wrangle through the night
    She go crazy
    Got to make a getaway
    Papa say
    Chorus:
    Oh - no hesitation
    No tears and no hearts breakin'
    No remorse
    Oh - congratulations
    This is your haitian divorce

    I know we had this exact thread a while back....didn't realize that it was in 08'. That's a while back. But I posted the same thing (i.e. these guys suck) and its amazing the diametrically opposing views that people have on them. Some love them, some hate them (and some think they're just OK - Mitch Hedberg).

    Wish Borgo were here to weigh in on this debate.

    +1.

    My 2 cents -- I don't mind Steely Dan at all . . as long Jim Hodder or David Palmer are singing lead vocals. I'm willing to concede that this probably means that I do not really like Steely Dan.

    Yes, and he used to think it was the most vicious character assassination imaginable to tell fans of the band that Fagen and Becker are "two talentless hacks" or words to that effect.

    LOATHED is the word that comes to mind.
    Hell maybe this thread brings him back.


    No marigolds in the promised land
    There's a hole in the ground
    Where they used to grow
    Any man left on the rio grande
    Is the king of the world
    As far as I know
