    One of my absolute favorite players, seen him several times live and he is always awesome. A few years back he did the whole Beatles White Album show at the Sydney Opera House with a stellar band and orchestra, one of the best concerts I have been to in many years!

    So, living end aficionados, I dig their music, so what should be the first album to buy? I like rock with pop elements. Not too hard not too soft. I like a firm mattress and a squishy pillow.

    I like the first few, self titled and Roll On. Not an aficionado, got their first album in 1999 or so, saw them for the first time last year, great show and drew heavily from those two albums.

    I love this band!! And yes, I wish they'd offer his sig model in the States. Can't wait for the new record!

    Woo! this band is not my cup of tea but ... as I didn't know anything about this band I made my homework and this guy got the Gretsch virus for sure.

    I found this youtube, I don't know if it's coming directly from Chris himself (same guitar, same amps... I don't know), or if this is another Gretschoolic which need a Gretsch of every color, but one thing sure I was stuck by this massive drive tone just like a lightning bolt !

    This room is very cool btw...

    "From here on in", wouldn't be a bad place to start. It's their best of-singles collection album and has tracks from albums between 1997-2004.
