THE UNKNOWN: The Black Crowes - Rustic Cabin Evergreen Woods

Everybody out there who is on Facebook raise their hand. Okay, everybody who isn't on Facebook, go join then come back and read the following.

Recently I found an old high school buddy on Facebook: Dave C. or as we called him him...Super Dave. Super Dave could and would do anything. Super Dave could pound a 6-pack of beer then surf his friend's station wagon at 30 mph. Super Dave could eat a 3-foot long Subway sandwich then run a mile in under 6 minutes. Super Dave once talked a police officer out of arresting him for driving naked and drunk. Super Dave was Super. I can't tell you how happy I was to find Super Dave and add him as a friend. I instantly emailed him and asked him what was up...surely he was doing things I could only dream of. This was his reply...

Hey guy, I'm married with 3 little girls. I'm a statistician now. Off to ballet soon.

The dream is dead.

Band reunions are like finding "super daves" on Facebook. At first you're excited...but they are always letdowns.

I am looking forward to the new disk. Where do these tunes come from?

Dude, you have my sympathy! My "Super Dave" is now a Mennonite Preacher!

You're pretty spot on about the new album. It's not outstanding like their early stuff, although I'm really digging it.
