Man do I miss these guys
OMG that's a Beatles tune?!?!?!?!? I never knew.... and that's my favorite Satellites' song! I just saw Dan Baird & Homemade Sin a few nights ago (without Dan Baird, who is undergoing treatment for Leukemia) and they rocked it out of the house!
If you miss the Satellites, Dan Baird's first 2 solo records are awesome. I like Homemade Sin alot, but I don't think they are up to the level of the old Satellites... not on record, anyway. But it's still better than today's Satellites, which is little more than a novelty act, unfortunately.
I've always wondered what the hell happened... I mean, I know music changed, and they had their run, but I also know Dan and Rick were NOT getting along.... never heard any details, always wondered what the reason(s) were....
More Satellites love
ruger9, Rick Richards is for sure in my top 5 guitarists of all time
Homemade Sin, carryin' the torch! (with Warner Hodges of Jason & The Scorchers on lead)
IMO, the greatest guitar "duo" ever: Dan & Rick. No offense to Keef & Ron, or the Skynyrd guys, but for me, Rick and and Dan were IT, man.
"Three chords and a cloud of dust!"
Wow. A band I totally overlooked. Thanks for bringing up.
Rick Richards rules! Check him out for on the Izzy and the Ju Ju Hounds records. Kind of like Mike Campbell, just the perfect player.
They were a cool band, I enjoyed them back in the day. Here's my personal brush with them: My band was playing a private party at a hotel on a Sunday afternoon. When we pulled up to do the load in, we saw the Georgia Satellites' tour bus parked out front. (they were in town because they had opened for Tom Petty the night before) As we were bringing our stuff in, some of the Satellites' crew was bringing gear out - don't know why they had guitars and amps in the hotel, but they did. It was kinda funny as we passed each other in the doorway. We went to the lobby bar after for a pre-gig drink, and there were a bunch of long-haired, obviously rock n roll guys having a beer there. Some Satellites and some crew. We had just decided to offer to buy them a drink - when instead, they bought US one and wished us a good show! Very cool guys.
Don't Pass Me By...Ringo wrote that one, (White Album), good taste young man!
Exactly, people often take The Beatles for granted
Another fave! Another cover! My band actually do "Don't Pass Me By" and "Whole Lotta' Shakin'"
ruger9, that is awesome
I'm stealin' that line, if you don't mind
@blowtorch , thanks for posting. These guys came out of the Buckhead scene in Atlanta right after I spent a couple of years hanging out in bars there. When I'd check in with friends (after I moved back to Florida) they'd tell me about this great new band I was missing. Then they got big and I got to hear it for myself.
They could get sweet, too. I used to do this one in an acoustic trio. Like, 30 years back now
