The Truckers show the other night was terrific. It was my first time returning to the Georgia Theater since the fire. I think it's safe to say it is a perfect venue for shows such as this. The sound system is top notch and the new layout is amazing. It's still a little small, but that only adds to its uniqueness.
Despite some very recent changes in staff, the Truckers played an amazing set with their usual high energy and solid symbiosis that you expect from a group who's core has remained together so many years. As Tyler mentioned the next day, the only thing that would've been better would be a Southern Rock Opera show. For old times sake.
Oh well, maybe one day. All that being said, the show had one small drawback. My top three songs are (in order): Whiskey Without Women, Where the Devil Don't Stay and 3 Dimes Down. Cooley didn't do Whiskey Friday night. So I decided to look at how often this happens since the shows I've seen, heard and read about almost all had the song included. Luckily Truckers fans are serious about their Rock Shows and the website One of These Days has a ton of info on the 1400 shows DbT has played.
Here's what I found of the top songs played:
|Gran Gran's Box of Spiders|
- Let There Be Rock, 641 times
- Zip City, 567
- Sink Hole, 559
- Marry Me, 531
- Lookout Mountain, 515
- Where the Devil Don't Stay, 390
- The Living Bubba, 333
- 3 Dimes Down, 329
- Buttholeville, 321
What I stood a 100% chance of was getting my face melted off by the time the EZB walked off the stage...angels ringing bells in my ears and fuselage scattered everywhere.
