The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon Rants on Tumblr
After a few too many requests for cover songs…he hopped on tumblr to express his thoughts. You can read the full post HERE, but here’s a taste:
“…We are The Gaslight Anthem. We play Gaslight Anthem songs… My name isn’t Bruce, It’s not Eddie, or Joe, or Paul either. If you’d like to hear their songs they are readily available and the former two tour quite often.
“Don’t come to see Bruce, he won’t be there. Don’t come to hear a cover, it probably won’t happen.”
“For some reason I’m the one with microphone, which may be a mistake entirely. But if you want one and have something to say, please start a band, get in the van, sleep on floors, and work your butt off –maybe one day I’ll find your band and I’ll come see you play.”
