Spun: Matt Mays and El Torpedo

By Garth Paulson

Note to musicians everywhere: mixing rock with country is not new, exciting, or a foolproof recipe for good music. Just because you can throw a slide guitar and cowboy imagery into a paint-by-numbers, horribly sung, AABA rock song with simplistic drivel for lyrics does not mean you should. Please cease and desist immediately. If you insist on mixing rock and country at least learn how to write a decent song first. If not, stop wasting our time. Quit trying to impress people by going to a well which dried up 15 years ago.
