SAGE - Knoxville, TN

The band, Sage, was and always will be one of the best bands around, if anyone deserved to make it to the top, it was THIS band. What a ride, opening for Steppenwolf, Bad Company, and Bon Jovi... It is really a shame Travis decided to break up the band at the height of their success. For those of you who do not know about Sage, I would recommend you trying one of their CD's, although they are a rarity and very hard to come by, if you stumble onto one of them, I suggest you buy it. Their first successful CD was entitled Luv n' Lust, the second hit was State of Mind. The members of Sage were as follows: Doug Shock- vocals, Rob Martin- Bass and vocals, Travis Wyrick- Lead guitar and vocals, Vic Ilagan- Drums. What a stage presence they were and real talent, real musician's with a real passion for their music. The memories are always going to be with me, and I miss the band and the shows very much.....This is my tribute to my husband, Rob Martin... and the band Sage!!!

Rock on!!!!!!!!! :banger:

I heard them on the radio every Sunday night on 103.5 i believe. They were always the best "local" band and i knew that and i'm from Virginia, three hours away. I would have loved to seen what would happened if they would have gotten the attention about 1988, they would have been a big Mtv band. They really take me back to some memories. The song THINK ABOUT LOVE was all over the radio in our area. special memories. shame i never got to see the band. I can't wait to get the second album.

HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!

 

:lol::lol::lol:

 

That's good!

 

(And sadly, it is very true as well. Maybe that's why it's funny and unfunny at the same time.)

 

Still, dasa good one!

Sage is kinda hoping he is drunk at their show, that way he will look like a fool (and he is, hope I am not offending anyone...but hey) They are prepared to play some Crue toons with him if he decides to show up... :banger:

 

Oh, and I will have some "SAGE GREATEST HITS'' cd's after the show tonight, I have some thank you's to return...You know who you are, so be looking in you snail mailbox in the next week or so........... :drink: Any one who would like to purchase one, it is $5...yep that's right, just 5 bucks, all the proceeds go to charity......so just PM me and let me know...I am so ready for this show, tell you all about it tomorrow!!!!! ROCK ON......... :headbanger:

Cool, Thanks guys....I really wish you could be here, the support of the fans and the amount of people going to the show is overwhelming....I AM SO EXCITED, but a little sad :crying: , but who knows, in their interview with our local paper, Sage says they are not beyond playin' some local venues, now and again.........OMG, the boyz are at the club doin' their sound checks and then the hubby is coming home to get me...I am a nervous wreck, and all I can do is sit here and wait :wacko::jump:

OMG...................IT TOTALLY ROCKED......................We had a tour bus,& I mean A TOUR BUS, sitting outside the club, where all the guys(and the wives, but I was the only one there) just kinda hung out and warmed up before the show...and changed clothes...at 10:30 Sage took the stage to a packed house, and played for 3 STRAIGHT hours, the drum solo, guitar solos, and funking bass solo's were soooo awesome..........finally a show worth paying to see (of course I didnt have to)...we have 30 t-shirts left, and a about 50 greatest hits CD's....SAGE raged, and sounded better than ever.........such a tight band... if they play together again, it won't be anytime soon, Travis Wyrick is off to San Diego for two months to engineer and produce P.O.D.'s new release, colaborating with Mutt Lang, and right after that, he is doing Charlie Daniel's new release...at 2:30 a.m. the hubby and I were loading all the bass gear and cabs, we got home at 3:30 a.m. and believe me when I say WE HAVE BEEN IN BED ALL DAY...............

:blink::blink: We were up way past our bedtime :crazy:

SAGE STILL ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! :headbanger::headbanger::headbanger::banger:

    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg
