Ryan Adams. My friends who I went to lots of Allmans, dead, and phish shows with love his music, and we would listen to his CDs on the rides home from shows, bars, or parties and it was not bad but I never liked it enough to buy or listen to any of his music.

Nick Cave-boring.

moe.-saw them open up for the Allmans in Philadelphia in 2005, and they were very, very, boring. No improvisation and it was like listening to them on CD. We skipped them and just stayed in the lot drinking beer at the Scranton PA show.

Mars Volta-Again my friends loved them and would put on their CDs or albums but the music did nothing for me.

WSP-The playing isn't bad but I can't stand JB's voice at all.

Marcus King-See above for WSP.

Warren Haynes solo/modern day gov't mule the past decade or so-I bought Dose and saw early mule before Allen Woody overdosed on heroin, and went to more shows on other tours but the new songs suck, the covers which were always part of mule shows are now a parody of themselves and Warren's histrionics, and I have seen Warren and/or guests completely ruin and bring down the overall flow of songs or setlist/vibe/energy of shows with covers or badly placed songs. The overall band does not play nearly as well as they once did and my friends and I are done with them.

TTB-They are not bad but I have no desire to see them live again. Susan sings and plays way too much, and they are basically completely copying the early late 1960s and early 1970s roots rock bands, shows are very boring, and pretty much all the same.

Savoy Brown-Yes but Foghat-no, TTB in one ear out the other, Sheryl Crow, Grace Potter, never got Springsteen, post Dead 95, Alice Cooper, Blackberry Smoke (cashin in on that southern thing), Mother of Invention, Beach Boys, I could go on forever as I'm sure everyone can too.

Top of the list, easily, Grateful Dead.

A few other bands/musicians/genres but it's quite a list and nobody gives a sh!t anyway.

The fervent disdain for TTB on this site continues to fascinate me. I'll see them a couple times a year if I can swing it.

It's interesting since their facebook fan page is one of the most diehard fan pages, and crowds at their shows have been pretty intense.

At a recent Wanee, Warren performed an intense, almost darkly serious, dub version of Steve Miller's "The Joker". It was awful.

This is disturbing to me and I can't pinpoint why.

This is a fun thread. I can't listen to much Jeff Beck after Blow by Blow and Wired, which costs me guitar guy cred, but whatever. I'm basically blues and jazz based in my taste. Prog rock is a pretty much total no go for me, with a few notable exceptions and I can't listen to Rush at all. Any combination of opera and rock should never have happened. I saw Dream Theater at Roseland once and was so digging the first 5 minutes, then the singer came in. Yikes. Yngwie is terrific for 2 songs.

I get the thing about SRV being to many notes, and I originally felt the same way, but saw a life-changing show at 1990 JazzFest that made me reevaluate everything and having gotten super deep into him over the past few years for obvious reasons... there's a lot of material that transcends that. and he was a great, underrated singer IMHO.

Porkchop - the reason "Rockin Horse" was left of the album is Warren wrote it for Gregg, who read the lyrics and said, "I ain't singing this." I think in context, those lyrics are actually pretty good.

Oh, you heard blackey's story about that too? I kid

Different strokes, I know a lot of people love that song. To me the lyrics aren't as poetic or original as the other 12 songs on the topic from Where It All Begins

AlPaul, you pretty much nailed it for me. Rush, Yngwie, prog generally all make me want to hurl.
