I really liked Mark Sandman and Billy Conway's pre-Morphine band Treat Her Right.

I'm kind of indifferent about Morphine.

2. I've got one that's the opposite of that

Julian Casablancas is the lead singer for The Strokes. I like a few of their songs, but nothing nearly as well as I like from Casablancas' solo album that came out a year or two ago. Here's "Tourist."

4. Those bad boys from Boston, the incomparable J. Geils Band.
"Give It To Me", from 1973's Bloodshot. Three minutes of Jamaica funkin', then three minutes of chooglin' jungle funk.

Yeah. Centerfold makes me cringe. With Freeze Frame, Seth Justman wrecked what Peter Wolf had built.

5. I am kicking myself for passing up on seeing Treat Her Right several times
Edited on Sun Sep-04-11 11:54 PM by Tom Ripley
I just always assumed they would be generic while wearing blues hats, playing Litigator custom guitars and BluesLawyer hand-wired tube amps. And a harp player who never knows enough is enough

I was wrong.Very wrong.

6. Does The Dream Syndicate with Karl Precoda qualify?
When he left, and was replaced by Paul Kutler, they morphed into a different band (still named The Dream Syndicate, though)

8. The Doobie Brothers
They changed personnel and went totally flat. It was a great disappointment because their early music was sweet and righteous.
