    Saw Kevin Bacon at GC a while back and his band is supposed to be pretty good but I only have heard from others. Keanu Reeves was in a band called Dogstar that actually toured global. I talked to him not long ago and he still plays and is self taught.

    I've seen a couple of clips of Kevin Costner's band Modern West, and they weren't as bad as I thought they'd be. I just wish he'd stop making movies.

    KC & Modern West...

    CMT (here in Canada) had an hr of them 'live' in a Toronto pub, and I was quite surprised -- he can sing and strum, had a tight band (and incredible fiddle player!).

    Zooey Deschanel's duo - She and Him - is good, if a bit of an acquired taste, and I think better live than recorded. She's got a strong, clear voice. There's one particular set of YouTube videos of them in Canada that is very good.

    Billy Mumy is a really good musician. I can't vouch for all his stuff, but I've heard him on some late night radio playing some stuff, and it was very good. Songwriter as well.

    Steve Martin played banjo as part of his act in Disneland before making it big.

    Some of "Will Robinson":

    Agreed. Seeing how M. Ward is the other half of the duo, how could it not be good???
