I find myself more in to hard rock/heavy metal since the ABB are no longer in existence as I have found many jam bands to be boring as the Brothers took jamming to a whole different level and the voice of Gregg was just beautiful.

My taste in music hasn't changed but I guess I've probably listened to a bit less of the ABB than I used to when they were still around.

And I agree with the second part of your post. Although, I've always found other "jam" bands to be rather boring compared to the ABB. The ABB always did indeed take it to another level. And yes, Gregg had a very soulful voice that stood out from so many others.

Been listening to live Brothers even more. Not just the Duane years but many of the Instant live shows of the Trucks/ Haynes years as I think that band is the closest to the original in mojo and spirit of the music.

Will be spinning the final Beacon show on my 3 hour drive to my baybro's house today for family Easter.

Mine has shifted a little as well. I have always liked hardrock and metal and have definitely been listening to more of that the last several years. I still listen to ABB quite a bit, and solo Gregg and Dickey stuff. A little less Mule and even less TTB. On XM radio where Jam-On used to be a go to station for me, I rarely find myself there and tend to listen to more of the other rock stations now. And some outlaw country Ray Willie Hubbard and Shaver and the type.

Good topic.

I think of the ABB as a rock band that jammed vs a jam band like Moe or Phish. Typical "Jam" bands are way too noodly and boring to me. I guess I primarily listen to the ABB family bands but have listened to more Americana like Jason Isbell, Turnpike Troubadours, Uncle Lucious ect.

I sure miss the ABB. I got into them in the 90's and few things were as enjoyable as a warm summer afternoon at an outdoor venue and an evening with.... I also miss the Black Crowes, Blues Traveler, and the Horde type of shows too. Now it's more about weekend festivals which are hard for me to make.

It's a shame this site is so slow now. I've got a lot of good listening advise here.

Blues Traveler to my knowledge still exists although John Popper always has side projects going on. I saw them only two summers ago, 2017. Of course they were very good.

I sure do get what you are saying though about missing HORDE. It was that Festival here in the Bay area, 1994 @ Shoreline Amphitheater, that reintroduced me to ABB. I had seen them only once before, 1975 at The Forum in L.A., the excellent Chuck Leavell and Lamar Williams lineup. Of course, they were amazing, a mostly instrumental and very jazzy show. ABB just blew me away that night at HORDE; I had completely lost touch with them and was in shock at how great they still were. After that I never missed it if they came around, ended up seeing them 21 times, some of those out-of-state.

And yeah, what an incredible HORDE lineup that day: ABB, The Black Crowes, Blues Traveler, Ziggy Marley and Sheryl Crow. Only bigger, multi-day Festivals have lineups coming close to that one day show.

I can no longer listen to guitar based music....for some reason I lost my interest in watching guitar players...I've tried to understand why but it just doesn't have the same impact it use to on me. I've tried to listen to Marcus King and he is very good no doubt but again it seem so contrived now...

For me it all ran it course and I just enjoy more "song" based music now and not so much long extended guitar solos

Funny thing, I've been into more DTB lately, digging up archive.org shows.
The last TTB album was a disappointment. I did give it a good try, left it
in the truck for months and like some of the songs. but. The kicker
was taking a 6 hr round trip drive with no CDs (forgot em) except that one,
which I never listened to. It went to the Goodwill store.

I wonder if TTB will fold eventually with Kofi gone, he was musical jet
propellant.

Great thread. I would say the answer is yes and that makes me appreciate it even more when I do.

I'm retired and one of my primary hobbies is working out. Like everyone I don't always feel like doing it but 99.99% of the time I make myself because I know how good it makes me feel. Two or three times a year when I'm really struggling I put the Fillmore album on and like magic the exercise becomes pretty easy. The last time it happened was several months ago and I got so into Liz Reed that when it was over I didn't remember the last 15 minutes on the elliptical. It was like an out of body experience even though my heart rate was really high.

I listen to a ton of alt country, outlaw country, R&B and new bands from a lot of various genres.

I post a lot on the thread we have on What Are You Listening To Today? I get a lot of great band/artist ideas from other people off of it.

I find it hard to listen to blues guitar players these days as most of them sound alike to me. For example the bands I am going to see this summer are Candelbox, Sammy hagar and Godsmack.

This is probably it for me too. Greensky Bluegrass, Billy Strings, Infamous Stringdusters, Kitchen Dwellers, Larry Keel and others have taken up most of my music buget post ABB. (Although I was pretty into Yonder Mountain String Band before Jeff Austin left).

On the jam side i listen to TTB, NMAS. JRAD and Spafford, this is mostly because at work I download shows from Archive.org and then play them on an external MP3 player/speaker and WSP/ABB/Mule arent available.

I have been into Blackberry Smoke the last couple of years. Ironically the one BBS song that Gregg added vocals too -Free On The Wing- helped me dig deeper into the BBS catalog. JJ Grey, Galactic, TTB, Mule and Phish are all included on my workout playlists . The song that I've been coming back to almost daily lately has been The Velvet Underground's O' Sweet Nuthin'. The Black Crowes cover of that tune has also appeared often lately during my workouts.
No question about it for me though that The Brother's are still part of my daily listening. Listening to shows from 73- 76 that have popped up on You Tube over the past year or so have proven to be very satisfying .

Those were great shows. I preferred a day packed with great bands vs a weekend with a lot of fluff and 1 headliner at night. Sorry, just my opinion. I know new bands need to get there start, but some of the these festivals are actually too much music. If that's possible.

More Dead & Co, also found a great new spinoff group Ghost Light.
Back to my Pink Floyd roots saw Nick Mason last month.

Of course I drool at all the new Duane era releases finally seeping out....

I just accept what the good Lord giveth me. I like certain venues and when bands play the venue I will give them a shot. I have Ryan Montbleau balancing out Kris Kristofferson at the Winery later this week and I just saw Tokyo Motor Fist. I have an ear out for bands like Bishop Gunn, Allman Betts, & Billy Strings. I like Luther Dickinson, Amy Helm, Anders Osborne, and Jackie Greene among others and will always see them and their little offshoot projects. Scott Sharrard too, he's doing a lot of good things. I just picked up Marcus Kings cd, my wife says he sings like Susan. She loves Susan, she says his vocals are "in the style of". I have over 8K cd's and do deeper dives on occasion sooo many great bands from the last 60 years, blues, folk, classic, alternates?, etc.

That's awesome. 80,000 plus songs.

Do you have them ripped onto your computer and playlists created?

No one can ever accuse you of not supporting artists.

Hard copy cd's, My son and I built a wall shelf 15 years ago and I now have boxes all over the house, not only on the shelf, but in boxes in the guitar room, the attic, and basement. I'm a hoarder. 2k live DVD's (with very few doc's), 19 guitars, 3 mandolins, & a ukulele. I breathe music. My kids are 24 and 25, I'll be downsizing within a couple years, I have no idea what I'm going to do. Most likely a Military Package donation hopefully a Musical Therapy Place. I have over 200 guitar tab books. I think Musical Therapy is the best Therapy.

I've really gotten into Iron and Wine, which is funny because it's like polar opposite of ABB, very minimalist.

Our Endless Numbered Days and Around the Well are two of my favorite Iron and Wine albums that are so minimal but so amazing. Beast Epic released a couple years ago has more instruments but is basically a return to the minimalist style where Sam Beam came from.

I did get to enjoy Gov't Mule's 4/20 show from the second row this past weekend and yep, I still love getting my face melted!! What an amazing setlist unlike any Mule show i've seen prior.

Hasn't changed. Still locked into the same stuff I grew up (and old) with. Every now and then something that piques my listening ear and I'll tune in but my taste? Still the same, I don't go from fillet mignon to Spam.
