STOP THE MADNESS!

I'm sorry that I ever asked what happen to the former band members. I actually wanted a real answer.Not some work of fiction from some jerkoff. Nontheless it's about the music,and what great music it is. Chuck you never cease to amaze me. Record after record. You are absolutly brlliant. I have to thank Lucinda Williams for turning me on to you.She always has great openers. Had she not put you on her 2002 tour I may still not know who the hell you are.Again and again I must request that you come back to the DC area as soon as possible.You are an inspiration to us all! Keep us goovin'!

Truth gets in way of good story…....

Saul and the Dixie Chicks forgot the part about Rob and Winston leaving the country for Costa Rica after caving in Mr. Prophet's rather large cranium. They are now working for one of the largest Drug Lord/White Slavery/Amway distributors in the Americas. Winston, on the other hand would not play "second banana" to his Costa Rican drug lord/slavery/amway host, so he now runs a whore house in Buenos Aires. Rob at last count was working on a Self-Help audio book series for Rageaholics in Truth or Consequences, NM. His new Info-mercials feature, Anthony Robbins, Flea, Joey Buttafuco and Tom Boseley. We wish him well. We suggest anyone possessing further information on these men come forward and bring us out of the darkness.

What Happened to Winston and Rob? (One man’s "story")

It was always known on the inside (even back in the GOR days) that Chuck liked to tease. But, a year or so ago, when he quite smoking, I heard somewhere (maybe on this message board) that his teasing became unmerciful. It apparently came to a head one night on tour last fall when Chuck called Rob a "retard" on stage and later slapped him without warning as Rob went to light a cigarette after the show. Of course, this made everyone angry, but especial Rob and Winston who had long felt Chuck's wrath of subtle taunt and the humiliation of Chuck's so-called benign ridicule. Everyone knows that Chuck is the master of turning a phrase and when he places his caustic bull-eye on you, you don't stand a chance. This night it was Rob's turn. Rob and Winston had begun talking among themselves about this aspect of their otherwise satisfying musical position. But Rob felt doubly hurt and betrayed by the final humiliation of the "retard" comment—because, not only had he endured this on stage in front of a half-packed crowd of mostly uninterested people, but the "retard" comment, he knew, came from a conversation where he apparently bared his soul about some problems he was having in school and some testing or something while he and Chuck were the only ones awake in the van driving the dark roads of the South West. So from what I heard anyway, they were in some town on Route 80, like Winnemucca, or Elko, or Lovelock and when Stephanie was napping and Max was out "looking for some guitar strings" (he apparently knew what was up), Rob and Winston beat the crap out of Chuck so bad that he had to cancel that night and have some friends drive up from San Francisco to finish out the next week of gigs—black and blue, no less. I never heard what happened to Rob and Winston. I know they rented a Plymouth Alero and drove a hundred miles an hour back to Tuscon with only three piss breaks and casino/whore-house stop for Winston. By the time they got into town they were arguing constantly about the shitty car Rob had rented and how Winston wasn't paying the high drop-off fees. I guess Stephanie, as always, is doing better than everyone expects and devoting most of her time outside the band to her beloved cat, Danielle Steele and her "witchcraft". And Max, by far the most spiritual and genuinely grounded member of the group, is willing to endure Chuck's slights and occasional emotional cat-o-nine-tails knowing that, as hard as he tries, he will never be able to find such a staunch Republican band leader in San Francisco.'

New Convert!

I never heard of Chuck Prophet before hearing him recently on the radio here. I don't even have the album yet but there is one song I can't get out of my head. The song is "Have a Duty," and I'm not sure what it's about, but I love the groove. Is it what I think it's about? If so, I really admire a songwriter that can write such a cool song about a bowel movement.

Tab?

Does anyone know where I can get the tablature for `Pin A Rose On Me' off of Chuck's newest? I would love to learn to play it, but don't have the talent just to figure it out!

Post regarding drummer and bass?

There was a post on here about the drummer and bass player's departure. Does anyone know if it was true? It must have been a joke. It seemed like one and because I went to read it tonight and it is gone, I thik. Anyone know the story??

"Styrofoam," "Shoot ‘em all down"

Chuck opened his recent St. Paul show with a great rocker called Styrofoam. Does anyone know where this song comes from? Is it newly written or an oldie, maybe Green on Red? And there was a beautiful duet they sang, Steph playing guitar and singing into the same mike as Chuck, where the chorus seemed to be "Shoot `em all down." This latter one rings a distant bell. Could it be an oldie they're covering? Can anyone provide information? I would love to see these great songs included on an upcoming studio or live cd.
