Dispatch writers! Listen up! Song titles are placed in quotes, album titles are italicized. Stop getting it wrong!

And there is a good reason this band never caught on.

The old clannish jock has a way or ruining everything, or at least trying. Pollard is very good, Pollard + Sprout is magical. I have never seen anything in print or in his actions in which Pollard demonstrates that he truly gets that. And the biography makes it look like all members left on their own accord.. BS!
He should pine for Toby and this combo the way we all have. Not because the money and respect are rolling in for the first time ever, but because there is magic in this combo. Unless he sees the magic this will be short lived.

I was at this show. There was magic onstage, indeed. It blew away the previous four times I've seen (Sproutless) Bob. This is America's Greatest Rock Band. Sorry, Cheap Trick. Never has a six-hour round-trip been so worth it.

Double-live album, please.
