I'm not accusing the band of anything, that was rhetorical, I just got the U.S. Blues and I guess I can't stand that song. The last time I saw em play it was in 04 and it depressed me so much I walked out of the show. Bobby and the band have been real nice not playing it at the shows I'm at I'm sorry to have been a little negative as they just finished an awesome tour.
But too late to take it back! :(
If this was love then how would I know?
you don't get it
Friend of the Devil is a fictional song. What does that have to do with the current murder of a child?
Much great art whether novels, poetry, paintings, music portrays the dark side. It isn't all light and peace and love.
I guess in your world I wouldn't be listening to the blues or reading the beats.
The outlaw tradition is huge in American History and in the American arts and entertainment. Especially that of the west.
Your association of this song with a current event has no thread and the accusations you make towards the band are just pure bullshit and meanhearted. Saying have a nice day at the end of ranting against the band like this rings pretty shallow and two faced.
If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.
Saw Bobby and the boys had a fine tour and played Friend of the Devil twice in seven nights!Didn't see any of the reviewers say how much they enjoyed that one. I wonder how the Persuasions, a group with a strong gospel background, felt about it. The last show they played it was a couple days after the national news ran the story of the sweet little seven year old girl who was kidnapped, murdered, and found dead at the dump. Do you guys approve of that sort of thing? Are child murderers your friend? That's what that song says. Maybe they're just fine musicians but not very bright. When you sing "without love in the dream it'll never come true" do you mean it? Have a nice day! :)
EXCELLENT shows:):):) Good times were had by all:):):)
Thanks for makin it happen Bobby:):):)
