    It's amazing how disrespectful people can be. Last month I went to see Buddy Guy at an auditorium type of theater with excellent acoustics and some dumb a** kept shouting "Sweet Home Chicago!!!" in between every two songs. Finally Buddy looked up at the idiot and said..."Man, you sound just like Eric Clapton. Every time him and I play together he always wants to play that damn song...it's like the only blues song he knows and I ain't playing that song" The audience cheered!

    Shut that guy up pretty darn quick!

    One of the best things about RA covering Run To You or SO69 is watching the hipsters trying to figure out how to react. :lol:

    Like - they loathe BA and would punch the radio quick if he came on, they love RA and the fact he's not gigantically popular and is written about in the "right" magazines/press but they really aren't sure how to take it - ironic ? He (RA) can't possibly like this stuff right ? He's just goofing right ?


    Once again - if you have no guilty pleasures most things are much more simple.

    He's said that that's what the song actually refers to!

    There seems to be a small fire in that initial video.

    On CMT Crossroads, Bryan stated beyond a shadow of a doubt, the song was never about a year. At least that was his position on the subject...

    I hate this song so much haha. I love Ryan Adams though. He makes it a lot better but I still just don't like manufactured nostalgia for the sake of $

    It's like the main song from the non existent musical " the 60s on ice"

    Buddy Guy is not your buddy, guy.

    Wait - is he Canadian?
    When in doubt - BLAME CANADA!
