Drive-By Truckers - George Jones Talkin’ Cellphone Blues

I think what everyone love(d)(s) about this band is that they’re all grateful humans who happen to be good drinkin’* pals.

*Jason’s struggles with the liquor, aside.

Drive-By Truckers March Madness Bracket →

Someone made a bracket for Drive-By Truckers songs. I made a slightly more print friendly version.

It doesn’t have all my favourites, but it’s still fun.

Quote with 13 notes

In the late 1980s, I happened to see one of Bill Hicks‘ HBO stand-up specials. I was frozen in my tracks and blown away by this guy’s courage and how far ahead of the pack he was thinking. I was still in my 20s, so I still thought everything had the potential to be life changing. But now I’m in my late 40s and coming across Bill Hicks is the only one of those experiences that continues to shape my thoughts and the standard I set for myself. I can’t imagine being any more amazed by the best show Bruce Springsteen ever played or going back in time and seeing Jimi Hendrix at his best. People made out of that stuff don’t come around often. Artists who don’t just hope they can make you think, but grab you and shake you until you do. Bill talked a lot about the corporate influence on our culture and politics. How it amounted to a lowering of the standard. How eventually we would expect less and less until we were buried in a sea of useless crap. I’m not saying the guy was a prophet, but he wasn’t making wild guesses either. It’s been 20 years since the untimely death of Bill Hicks, and he is still raising my standards.

I don’t know how the band feels about the article, but I think it’s a good read.

Regarding the Isbell-Truckers comment

I’m saying that Isbell is probably the most commercially marketable songwriter out of the bunch, but also the least “involved” in the band.

Jason Isbell is to the Drive-By Truckers, as Neil Young is to CSNY.
