This sounds like a very good man paying tribute to a very great man. Thank you, Yim. The dark horse runs within you and without you.

wikipedia my friend... his given first name was Jim. He went by Jim James in the early days of MMJ, now he's going by Yim Yames. Because he can.

can't get into mmj/jim/yim/whatever-mr. rockstar-wants-to-call-himself.....but harrison is THE MAN and i fully support anything that brings his music to the world. so, thanks jim/yim for the tunes....now get rid of that awful drummer and guitar player in mmj, grab some musicians with above-average talent, and gimmie some original music that can hold a candle to your amazing voice.

Hallahan is a beast on the drums you are obviously a fool to think otherwise...

this is definitely my favorite Jacket moment... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4XMsUmOEVY it was incredible... the entire Nashville show blew me away.

Actually, I dig that 21mmer has an interesting opinion, but I most definitely disagree - especially with the guitar part. I love the licks and riffs and sounds of jacket strings. Just for studio references, "Lay Low" on Z continually makes me shake and twitch with energy. I don't know who is playing the guitar insanity at the end, but whoever it is is "above average." I'm sure there are many more examples. This is the one that rocks me the most. Give another listen, see what I mean.
