“The desert punk-rockers…” I guess “Desert Punk” now passes for “jam” music? Come on guys…what WONT you cover here?

Befud… you ever see these guys live? I’m guessing not… while they are not your “typical” jam band… they still fit nicely somewhere in one of the corners that makes up the definition of a jam band… seems only reasonable that Jambands covers any band that is either a jam band, or a band that helped define the jam band scene… and that is a huge rainbow of music which I personally think helps create the magic that is a jam band!

Yeah! How dare you cover music on your music news website?!? The Meat Puppets are awesome, btw. Hope they play west too.

Please keep giving me info on good music playing anywhere. Nothing wrong in that. I like being introduced to things I may not have checked out before. Jerry introduced me to Irving Berlin, and I still love it.

If you dont know the Puppets, then you don’t know dick. Meat Puppets!

No the meat puppets arent a jamband….thank fucking Dog. 99% of jambands suck big cock. Especially but not limited to Moe. the Cheese and YMSB.
None of the mentioned bands could tune the Puppets guitars.

o.k. the meat puppets saw them in 1990 open for the chili peppers (when the peppers were good rite before blook sugar it was the last show of the mother’s milk tour actually) they were awful to say the least!!! but i bet they r better then the chili peppers now!!! LOL

First, a comment for all the respondents: My point is that they are NOT a jamband, no matter how hard you try and squeeze them into that box. I’m NOT saying they aren’t worthy — I know ‘em (DUH!) but they (and many other bands) I see written about should NOT be covered here. Or IF you’re going to feature this news, change the name of the site. Simple as that. Now, to your specific comments: @me: Nope, never seen ‘em, but certainly know ‘em. But they are hardly a “jamband.” That’s all I’m saying. Personally, I’m glad to see they’re back. @Uncle Eb: Don’t be a douche. This isn’t This just ain’t the place I expect to find this kinda news. @Stoked: You make good points, and I agree, I love being turned on to new stuff. I just think they are getting away from the original mission of this site. There are plenty of other sites get news like this… @Funkyriddims: Sorry, I was too busy listen to The Clash to fully read your comment. @Charles Brown: Heh Heh, I hear ya. And I think you’ve proven my point. @dankerator: You saw them open for the Peppers? a) That’s cool, b) you’ve DEFINITELY proven my point… November 27, 2013, 23:35:27

Does a effortlessly declining testosterone level produce the signals and warning signs of growing older?Not necessarily. Fellas can know-how quite a few signals and warning signs as they age, and several will probably happen as a result of cheaper testosterone degrees and will embody:
