I really shouldn’t love the Gaslight Anthem as much as I do. Catchy choruses, semi-punk guitar riffs and amazing lyrical content — these all make for a bad party in my mind. Right? Yet, they have been the only constant on my playlist since 2008. The ‘59 Sound was basically the soundtrack whenever I left work on my bike back in 2009 . Casanova Baby drove me home many, many times.
Oh, I forgot my point: Brian Fallon talks about why he loves the Replacements — amongst other things. I have never met the dude, but he seems like a solid gentleman.
