I used to make fun of these guys back in high school, just because they seemed so cheesy... but damn, we cover a few Matchbox songs now, along with many others I laughed at (remember, this was in my Slayer/Pantera/Megadeth/Cannibal Corpse days), but as I've grown as a musician with a better ear and not just a bass player, Rob Thomas writes some amazing songs, and one only needs to look at their "VH1 Storytellers" DVD to see that. His band is top-notch, and dead-on the entire night. Their "SHOW" DVD (it's pretty new) is also very good. Plus, finding out what "3 AM" is really about, and then watching him play it solo on the piano is pretty moving. I would've never thought it being a song about his Mom dying of cancer. It just doesn't have that vibe or feel in the regular recording... Anyhow, jus wanted to say that.
