Back Door Slam RIP.

Sorry to hear that one of my favorite young bands have parted ways. I have to admit, I am not shocked. After spending 2 nights in the front row watching Davey Knowles play guitar and sing, I just knew it was a matter of time before he became a solo artist. Very talented and hopefuly wont turn into John Mayer (yuck). Please just play the blues and dont aim for top 40.

Sorry John, just my opinion.

NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Crap I stopped by to tell you I gave you an award on my blog and get this news. I hope Davey follows your words of wisdom. We don't need another John Mayer!

I think what I read in an email from BDS is that Davey will carry on and keep the BDS name but with new bandmates. Still, I agree: very sad news. Davey will always be genius but the band from the Isle of Man had a very distinctive charm.

(You don't know me; your post came up on a Google news alert for BDS.)

Anne D. You are correct. The BDS name will continue. Will be different without the original lads.

Thanks for stopping by!
