I've got three of their albums - Fly Me Courageous (1990), Smoke (1993) and Wrapped In Sky (1995). An interesting band they are, playing some decent and consistent Hard Rock with some Southern/Bluesy elements. They sort of remind me of some of the more "alternative" sounding Hard Rock bands that released albums in the mid 90's. I haven't heard their early stuff though. Definitely HH's material.


In fact according to wikepedia "the more hard-rocking “Fly Me Courageous” topped charts and was one of the 10 most-played albums on AOR radio in 1991"


According to their website, this year is the bands 25th anniversary and they will be releasing a full-length feature documentary about Drivin N Cryin.

Wow, who'd have guessed they had that many albums? I'll keep clear, though. I really hate these guys. :(Well, their music anyway.

That's for sure. I remember that summer you couldn't go 30 minutes without that song popping up on the radio or MTV. A helluva tune on a pretty darn good album!

I once asked why they were not in the HH database...I don't think anyone knew or answered. They are not that great but I think they fit for sure.



Just what i think. They are not a great great band, but sure have some few good songs.


I just was surprised why some of their albums weren't on HH database.

Huge fan of these guys. Saw them live in Atlanta in 2001. Really didn't like Smoke but everything else is golden. I love Kevn Kinney's solo work as well. His vocals are definitely an acquired taste but I personally love them. Heard them described as REM meets AC/DC but I never really got that vibe. Hard rock with a folk presence at times. Certainly won't be everyone's cup of tea but count me as a fan.

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
