    DMB Saved My Life

    As a child and teenager, I always felt confused about who I was. I was supposed to have favorites-- favorite color, favorite food. I was supposed to know what I wanted to be when I grew up. I developed an eating disorder at 15 which stuck with me for a long time. ...

    Dave Is My Fantasy...

    Dave Matthews is probably the only person on this planet I would leave my husband for... and he is ok with that! LOL He once told me that he would let me sleep with Dave, but he wanted to watch...lol. He is probably as much in love with Dave Matthews as I am...haha No, seriously...

    Alpine Anyone?

    So I'm looking for someone to go to Alpine Valley with me to see the shows with my friends, anyone interested. I need to get rid of my extra ticket for each night since I have nobody to go with now, we're in out late 20's/early 30's so looking for someone who is the same.

    LOVE Is Powerful

    I kind of stumbled upon the great music of DMB.  Way back when, I was apart of one of those CD clubs, where you get 10 CD's for $0.01.  Well, I couldn't pick 10 CD's that I knew out of the list they gave you to choose from.  So, one of my randomn picks was DMB...

    Hypocrite

    I love the DMB, but I always feel like a hypocrite when I listen to it since I work for an oil company.  I always love his boundless hope about making the world better and loving your fellow man.  I guess somewhere I have an inner hippie.

    LeRoi Moore Will Be Missed

    I just saw that LeRoi, the sax player from DMB died.  That is very sad, they were a phenomenal live band and LeRoi was an integral part to their sound.  He will be missed.
