Steve Pellettiere commented on No Depression's blog post 'Contest: Interview Gary Louris, Win the Jayhawks' Deluxe Editions of Sound of Lies, Smile, and Rainy Day Music'
"Love your band and as a graduate of The University of Kansas, I've always adored the name of the  group as well. As a fan I should probably already know this, but how and why did you decide on The Jayhawks moniker...any ties to KU or…"

Steve Pellettiere replied to Nick's discussion 'Songs about Soldiers'
"Garry's earlier mention of Scott Miller got me thinking about another, more light-hearted song of his about a man in uniform, only this one getting dissed by his friend "Jody". "

Steve Pellettiere commented on Harrisonaphotos's blog post 'Barrence Whitfield & the Savages - Jumpin’ Hot Club (Newcastle, UK - May 8, 2014)'
"I couldn't get enough of a Barrence live show in the mid to late 80s...always high energy, fun shows with audience and band both drenched in sweat by the conclusion. Told a story in here before about getting so caught up during one performance…"

Steve Pellettiere commented on Gary Burnett's blog post 'B.B. King and the Roots of the Blues'
"" There will come a time, maybe pretty soon, when those around him might need to persuade the great man to call it a day" The above needs to happen, sooner, rather than later. Love BB and was fortunate enough to see him a handful of…"

Steve Pellettiere commented on Jela Webb's blog post 'Record Store Day 19th April 2014'
"I see what you're saying about eBay but I've actually used it as sort of extended Record Store Day resource, being able to purchase a limited edition (and usually at an affordable price) that I may have missed out on in-store. Of…"

Steve Pellettiere commented on Jim Morrison's blog post 'Bruce Springsteen's Revival Show'
"Only 8 shows for me (dating back to The River), but unlike with other acts that I've seen multiple times, there is always a clear memory of every Bruce performance that I have witnessed...more like, experienced. And this will probably make…"

Steve Pellettiere commented on Sad Songs Keep The Devil Away's blog post 'Drive-By Truckers - English Oceans (Album Review)'
"Good review of a great album and I agree, definitely their best since the Isbell days. I really dig this new lineup, perhaps the best playing from this band since their inception. Can't wait to see them perform some of these songs…"

Steve Pellettiere commented on No Depression's blog post 'Win a Copy of the New Drive-By Truckers Album'
"On the above tour list, that should be Columbia, MO btw. Will try and either catch them there, in St.L or Wichita as sadly they appear to be missing Kansas City this time around. Love the new record and can't wait to hear some of…"

Steve Pellettiere commented on Ken Abrams's blog post 'Crenshaw and Bottle Rockets Heat Up the Narrows'
"Two of my favorite acts...together. Doesn't get much better than that. They've been doing this for a little while now, but looking forward to my first opportunity to see this show on March 3rd at Knuckleheads in KC and your review did…"

Steve Pellettiere commented on Mike Seely's blog post 'Bruce Springsteen, Kathleen Edwards & the Importance of the End of an Album'
"Interesting that you would reference Springsteen's TOL as an example of how great albums of the past were conceived and put together in light of the fact that his latest is everything but a proper album as we knew them. Not knocking High Hopes…"

Steve Pellettiere commented on Neil Ferguson's blog post 'Barrence Whitfield and the Savages on a mission to rock (Interview)'
"One of my favorite live acts...EVER!  I saw them so many times during their mid-80s heyday that I ALMOST felt like I was part of the band. In fact, one time I was so caught up in their performance, I grabbed Barrence up off the stage and…"

Steve Pellettiere commented on Kim Ruehl's blog post 'Best of 2013 Closeup: Jason Isbell - "Southeastern" (Album Review)'
"Love Southeastern and like most, agree that without a doubt, it's the top record of 2013. Also agree with Mr.Vester that Jason has grown so much as a front man and with each performance that I've seen in recent years, he's become more…"
