    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...

    Where Are You Going?

    'Are you looking for answers To questions under the stars .... '   'I am no superman, I have no answers for you... but I do know, where you go is where I want to be.'   His voice is so sexy, it just resonates to me.

    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.

    Before I had gone to see DMB live I had only heard their songs on Crash and a few others on various albums. After I had seen them in concert for the first time, I fell in love. I had listened to them for months non stop after seeing them. They are still pretty much all i listen...

    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. ...

    My Love Of DMB

    In 1995 my girlfriend told me to listen to them. I bought Under the Table and Dreaming. Well that was it. It is an addiction that is unexplanable. The music, the band, the songs, the fans, the energy, I have been going to their concerts since

    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.
