Re: Matt Abts
Saw Gov't Mule at the Fillmore in Denver this past Friday night and WOW.
Now that Andy and Danny have had quite a bit of time to get into the groove - these guys are slaying it. The show was amazing,
Matt's new Pearl Reference kit sounded great (of course that's just a matter of having a good sound guy to tweak your mic EQs and such). It's fun to watch Matt play - he just seems so perfectly relaxed that it lulls you a little and then BOOM - wicked (but tasteful) double-bass fills.
This is the first time I had heard the band cover Zep's No Quarter. Usually, I don't like Zep covers, but this was impressive.
I'll be downloading the 4/27/2007 SBD show from muletracks.com for sure.
Insert witty saying here....
