I think these guys have a godd, thick, original bluesy growl of a sound with pop sensibility. Can definitely hear Stevie Ray Vaughan and Steve Miller as influences; who can say who they in turn have influenced. I like 'em.
But Hall members they are not destined to be.

Nice group to check out; I recommened "Beautiful World" and "Sister Sweetly".

Good call, Shawn mc. I've been a fan of BHT&TM for a long time, but they are not original or innovative. Not really Rockhall material. Just solid, sometimes soulful, rock and roll. Todd's playing and singing does remind one of SRV at times, I agree. Yet they are not a blues band at all.

I would add "Riviera" to that list of suggested albums.

Why don't the two of you get a room?

Good, solid "Jam Rock" band. Todd Park Mohr is an excellent guitarist, and they've had some really good tunes (for anyone not familiar, I'd suggest a track called "Broken Hearted Savior"). They have an annual concert at Red Rocks (which is a GREAT venue), and always put on a good show. They're worth catching if they come to your area...

Never got a chance to mention this, but good call on Big Head Todd.

I remember when "Sister Sweetly" was out, but I never paid that much attention to them. I was more into Pearl Jam, STP, Alice, etc. at the time. As a matter of fact, I had completely forgotten about them until you brought them up... I went back and gave their stuff a listen, and it is quite good!

I think it's impossible to be able to take in everything from a given decade. I'm still going back and finding things in the 80's & 90's that I completely missed, or either forgot about.

Todd tours all the time - probably some of the best live music you can ever hear. Go to Telluride & you will know for sure. He never disappoints the crowd - go BHTM ..

I thought Sister Sweetly was an excellent album. Songs like Bittersweet and Circle are always worth multiple listens. Would put Todd Head and The Monsters and Grant Lee Buffalo as 2 groups who I think deserve more attention. One of the posters mention Stevie Ray Vaughn influence that was a really good call. They still play concerts every year. It would be tough to make Big Head Todd and the Monsters a RRHOF call right now when Chicago, Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Duran Duran, The Cure, Moody Blues still not in. Perhaps in 10 years when the logjam clears, BHTATM might receive some consideration. KING
