but they really rock.
I happened to hear about Widespread Panic recently and was chagrined, nay, upset to find that they've been going for 20 years and have been a recording/touring tour-de-force (sorry about that) for the last 10 of those. Shame on the pathetic thing the UK radio market (AKA "kiddie-pop marketing machine") has become. Apparently, their music is a mix of southern boogie and San Francisco jam rock.
Check out their website (espesh some of the album reviews) and this Rolling Stone article.
