Re: Candy From A Stranger 19 Years Old

No idea. They were considered one of the best live acts around for a long time, so it would have made sense.

Sorry for the late reply, I didn't read it until now. The bonus disc consisted out of 5 live songs from that show in Canada.

Re: Any Dan sightings?

Has there ever been an interview with either Dave or Dan explaining the latter one's exit from the band? Dan was quoted stating he was fed up with the music industry and that was the reason he quit the band and music in general. What aspects of the music biz was he upset about? Are they on good ter...

Re: Will Soul Asylum ever come to The Netherlands?

It really depends on the kind of festival and how big it is. I would love to see them at some of the real big festivals around here, Reading, Roskilde, Glastonbury, Rock Am Ring, you name them... those are the type of festivals they played in the mid 90s, but there's no way they could ever play ther...

Re: Will Soul Asylum ever come to The Netherlands?

SA could easily be part of a festival if the promotors doubt they could sell enough tickets on their own. I mean, there are so many irrelevant and less talented artists included in tons of festival line-ups out there that it's mind-blowing how a band of the caliber of SA isn't getting any offers. M...

Re: Will Soul Asylum ever come to The Netherlands?

Dave has been talking in interviews about trying to get to Europe, but I don't know if it will happen. They had a show in London and Brussels lined up about 6 years ago but they cancelled them at the last minute. I think it's probably because they didn't sell a lot of tickets. The fact that they hav...

Re: The moment SA figured it out...?

I think every album, more or less, represents the style they were going for at the time. They've always kept evolving, at least to some degree.

Awesome that they played 99%.

I'd rather see them play an obscured song like that from another album, GDU is already represented so much on the setlist, but still cool.

Re: Michael Bland shares his incredible stories...

I never liked 'Stand Up And Be Strong' that much either to be honest. It's an alright song, but there are far more catchier songs on The Silver Lining that probably would have been more successful as a first single.
