Son Volt

Post by Godsownsinger »

I dont really see this as a "reunion", just like I didnt see Blue Sky as a "reunion" album for the Bottle Rockets.

There is only so much you can do at one time, now its time for the next Son Volt album, and Im glad! :D

Nice to hear Son Volt's back; I hope Jay doesn't regress because of it, though.

Or maybe he'll just balance a solo career and an SV career and make everyone happy!

Rock 'n roll rule #5: Reunion albums virtually always suck.

see: Stone Roses, Television, Sex Pistols, The Buzzcocks, etc.

As much as I love all things Jay, it's time for him to retire the Son Volt name and continue his solo work. I don't begrudge any of you for getting excited over the reunion, but you should consider seeking out some new & exciting bands rather than clinging to nostalgia for 1995. I'm just as curious as you to hear what the new Son Volt record will sound like, but I'm expecting a tired, rehashed effort.

I have waited for this since the old days on the Son Volt board many years ago. So long overdue. But many of us saw this coming and I must say I've had this feeling since Jay started playing w/ Canyon. Man I'm a happy guy.

Sounds like a last-gasp, desperate attempt to salvage a career. Hope it succeeds.

Just recieved confirmation from another source that tells me that what we have here is true :D :D :D :D Son Volt is BACK with all orginal members Eric Heywood always has been a bonus to the band but he is not considered a Band member. Unlike the added musician on "Straightaways" who place his name as a band member in the credit for that CD playing the tambourine. I think that was a joke because that was all this particular person did for Son Volt he never really tour with the Band.

Awesome news.

You know, there was something about Jay's voice in "Sometimes" - which everyone should get if they haven't by the way, great song - that made me think maybe the Son Volt reunion might be on. He just sounds like he's really digging it. I love Jay's solo stuff (I can't get SSBL out of my player) but I can't fucking wait for the new Son Volt album and tour.

i am so on clouds right now. my friend called and asked if i'd read the announcement yet and i automatically assumed it was bad news, but this is RAD. i thought he was going to tell me the jay show we're flying halfway across the country to see was cancelled, but no! SON VOLT! I'm off to play a record loudly...
