You will have a tough time making a charge of cynicism against Hiatt - he has consistent track record of commercial indifference.

Saw them 10 years ago and it was excellent show in an old ballroom. God almighty, I wish more of these RP bands would tour.

Man, I incredibly don't understand this reaction. Is there just a short list of pre-approved templates for songs about death? The melody is fast-paced, but I sure wouldn't say it's upbeat, exactly.

Be careful!  Nothing rankles the ire more of RP listeners than disliking one of the cult heroes played here.  Hiatt is definitely one of them.  I agree.  I just can't stand his voice.

I saw him play here last week doing an acoustic show with Lyle Lovett, boy he sure can whistle!

Doesn't sound to me like she killed herself, just left.

I'm in the "love JH" crowd. Saw him once with Richard Thompson and Roger McGuinn. Hiatt and Thompson scorched, and McGuinn was dreadful. Two out of three ...

Not sure who shit in your Cheerios a few years ago when you wrote this, but I hope it's all better now. 8—->9.

It's a beautiful, sad tune, but I hear him singing "He's crossing Muddy Waters" and I think it should be the theme music for a film noir of betrayal and revenge involving blues musicians.  "You gonna double-cross me?  Nobody crosses Muddy Waters!"

Two of my many favorites, make a great couplet here!  Almost always great selection wizardry :o)
