I think we all agree it would be great to have a fiddle back. I don't think it needs to be Boyd though.

The sax is still there, but it is certainly not the soulful sound of Leroi, and moreso has morphed into this horn section / wall of sound that is not at all what made dmb unique.

100% correct. Steve may be somewhat of a dick, but he knows the band and what makes them DMB

So I have always been sort of curious about Tim’s voice. It’s just so unique when he speaks. I didn’t know if something happened to him back in the day or that was just his voice. But I just read a comment on the DDT’W from radio city and someone asked about Tim’s voice, and someone replied back “he was in a severe car accident and his vocal cords got severed in the car accident. I’m not trying to pry much or know the details really but is this true? I’ve been on dmb boards since 2004 and can’t recall reading/hearing this before about Timmy.

I've heard this too. I assume it to be true.

This is from a 2011 interview with Tim

TIM REYNOLDS: Yeah, in 1980 I was a in a car accident that severed the nerve to the left vocal chord, so for a while I could barely even talk. So that gives it a rougher sound and I struggle with it sometimes because it gets tired easy, like if I talk all day and sing all night. So sometimes the voice is a challenge to sing. Some of the older TR3 songs are a little harder to sing because of they’re a little higher. I mean, even if you have two vocal chords that issue comes up. But I really enjoy doing it but once in a while I think I shouldn’t do it at all, just play guitar. But then once in a while someone will say, “why don’t you sing that song?” So I try to balance it. I know it’s not like some “American Idol” kind of voice where you can just get up and sing the shit out of any song and people are blown away by your singing chops. It’s definitely not that at all, but I like singing and I try to check out voices that have that rough quality and try to get stuff from that. Like some older blues singers like Sonny Boy Williamson and John Lee Hooker. If I could sing like that it would be awesome. All TR3 music with John Lee Hooker singing would be the shit. I mean, I know I don’t really sound like that, but that’s something I hear and can go for and grab some of that.

Wow thank you for sharing that, had no idea about that.

As I had said before in the unpopular opinion thread, I skip over all his solos almost every time I listen to d&t besides like stream. Honestly didn't know he sang on his albums either.

Wasnít Tim on each of the Big 3?

There’s a difference between what Tim and Buddy do now, versus what Tim and Butch did 94-98. You see that...

Here’s what I noticed while listening to 1998 shows. Tim was an absolutely perfect addition back in 1998. His fill weren’t too heavy, but he gave the songs a bit of a darkness to the music. Like almost a haunting vibe but tasteful. Especially on Seek Up, Don’t Drink, and the Heartbeat intro. His solos had a very distinct tone to them, and you knew it was Timmy playing. He moved away from that tone when he came back in 2008. Now of days he’s still a fantastic player, but it sounds much more generic.

With Butch in 1998 he hadn’t quite found his way yet in the band. He had some spotlight solos like Seek Up on live trax 1 for example. I just don’t notice him that much in 1998 and 1999. He was much more noticeable by 2000. His peak was 2002-2004. I mean he was awesome in those years.

100% accurate. Tim needs to step back an awful lot. He's a shredder now. The guys you see on street corners. Very generic. I like Buddy a lot and really glad they brought back the keys. I'd prefer more Buddy Seek Up and Bartender and less Buddy Everyday. Piano please, the organ cheese stuff can go away. Way too generic. Not DMB.

Believe it or not, he has stepped way back since Buddy joined the band. It was an immediate difference I noticed when listening to those 2018 Texas shows. Now whether that is toned back enough for some, I'm not sure.

Yeah the band has certainly become more jazzy since then. I think a part of it is also Dave can't really scream the way he used to, which I think helps bring the music down from being "over the top".

Well Tim doesn’t have to cover for Boyd anymore. And adding Buddy makes the sound more jazzy, though I agree with whoever said get rid of the organ and stick to keys.

Yeah Boyd is done for good at least for the current time, unless years down the road he can get his shit together.
