  • Allez Rouleur

    The early aughts called and they want their bands back…

    • Wily_Quixote

      How many 2010+ bands have been as influential and accomplished as Wilco? And none have their drummer.

      • Allez Rouleur

        Not sure. I used to see live music shows a few times a week. Life has gotten in the way of that, so I’m not that up on new music. Mainly records these days of much older groups. However, I’ll say this as my own opinion: I’ve never really liked more than a handful of Wilco songs. They’re okay, but nothing great. Death Cab for Cutie is not appealing at all. While I think Wilco is good, just not my thing, I genuinely don’t like them. Saw them live with Franz Ferdinand and had to leave after a few songs.

        Drummers. Hmm, never noticed him. I like Danny Carey. I like Phil Collins. I like Levon Helm. I like Stewart Copeland. I like Matt Tong.

        But, I’m not going to be thrilled to see Wilco at a bike race.

          Glass half full kind of guy, I see…..

            Not sure. I just don’t see the appeal of pairing those bands with bike racing. I don’t find them particularly worth listening to and I’m not sure who it’ll bring to watch a bike race.

            I’d rather see them bring an up-and-comer with some new appeal and talent, as opposed to bands far past their peak. Good doesn’t have to be expensive.

      The inane spewy joke store has called and it wants its spew back.

      • Allez Rouleur

        I don’t like any of those bands, which is purely an opinion. But I also wonder who exactly they’d bring out to a cycling event. What demographic are they addressing?

    I realize the weather and the Thursday afternoon start we’re not ideal, but the lack of spectators in Colorado Springs was disheartening. We figured it was about 1/5 the people that were downtown for the 2012 Pro Cycling Challenge. I hope things are good in Denver.
