For several years, as part of my annual Masters Tournament coverage, I’ve dropped snide remarks about Darius Rucker ruining Rock Fore! Dough. In fairness to me, it really has become the Darius Rucker (and friends) Show. I recall, fondly, Cheap Trick’s dynamite delivery back in 2007. Remember waaaay back then?
But, I have to now admit that Rucker is a fine fit with the finest of festivities. Attention, RFD people: just add a little R-n-R variety if possible. Rucker and the Blowfish are pretty damned good. That I gathered from last night’s (non-RFD) concert, which also featured Sheryl Crow. It was a REM cover that convinced me. Not too bad. Rock on.
