They are awesome, indeed!!! The singer, Charlie Starr is my son!!

Charlie recollects: "When I was growing up, we'd all sit around the piano singing, and I'd grab my dad's guitar every time someone put it down. About the time I turned six, I guess he figured he'd better get me one before I broke his.”

Thanks Pop Starr

Saw these guys a few nights in a row up in the midwest and they rocked. Very cool, had drinks after the show. They opened for Cross Canadian Ragweed and only played for about an hour but they were jammin.

I'm so, so stoked about seeing them at Wanee. I love their sound and think they'll fit SO WELL. I've been playing one of their shows On Demand for a while and my kids are all super into them too. :D


Here's the part that really makes me smile:
When Gregg was on his book tour over the summer, I went to a book signing in Atlanta. Charlie Starr & another guy (I'm not sure whether or not he was in the band) were there, books in hand, in line, geeking out like the rest of us. While there were a ton of people there trying to act like they were important and "in the know" (and a bunch of really, really sad looking former groupies), these guys were as down to Earth & humble as anyone could be. The only thing that drew attention to them was Charlie's crazy beard. People came up & asked for pictures, and he'd kindly oblige and then turn back into an excited fan, waiting nervously and wondering whether Gregg would be cool to him (I was in line right behind them).

I bet they're psyched. :)
