Dave Matthews Band Video Provides Insight On New Album
My love of all things Dave Matthews Band has been discussed much on the show, so here goes again. Hulu.com has a video providing an interesting look behind the scenes of the writing and recording of their new album Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King. Lots of very interesting tidbits in this video, including shots of the band using legit charts, engineer Doug McKean’s thoughts on drum sounds, and the band’s thoughts on the passing of saxophonist LeRoi Moore, who died during the recording. Also, at one point you see drummer Carter Beauford go for it in the studio (8:02 minute mark). I’ve picked up the album, and I must say it’s pretty great. Definitely a solid effort from a band who’s entering their third decade of existence.
