With all this music, you've encouraged me to go figure out who these people are. Based on what I heard at amazon, Kenny Chesney seems to be feel good country with a twist, not my style, but you might like him better than I do.


Now why didn't I think of that? I just went to Amazon and listened to a few of his clips -- no, he's not for me, either. But I was wrong to write him off without knowing who he is!


I'd have to say the dead singer I'd want to see would be Woody Guthrie. I wish I had seen Morphine before Mark Sandman died or Danny Gatton before he took his life. And if you consider a broken-up band "dead," then I wish I had seen Talking Heads before they split up. I am glad that I saw Warren Zevon before he passed.

And I can't argue with your John Prine/Bonnie Raitt answer.


I've seen Bonnie Raitt and John Prine sing "Angel from Montgomery" together (one of my all-time favorite songs ever). It wasn't in my living room, of course, but it was sublime.

We have very similar musical tastes, it seems. I'm a huuuuuuuge Lowell George/Little Feat fan.

A Jimmy Buffett show is a lot of fun, even if you're not a big fan of his music. Lora is pretty right-on about Kenny Chesney-I've always thought he was a talentless hack, but he did a song last year with Uncle Kracker ("When the Sun Goes Down") that I liked.
