She is so lovely. And based on her live shows, she is a lovely person as well. Very gracious, and heaven forbid, grateful to her audience. I am hoping she will tour here again before too long - her Australian shows always sell out.

I have a friend whose baby was diagnosed with adrenal cancer at 6 months of age. Adrenal cancer has about a 5% survival rate. The mom told me that during the baby's surgery she listened to "I Won't Give Up" on repeat over and over and over again... the baby is 2 today and fit as a fiddle. That song has such a special place in my heart, I still feel absolutely overwhelmed everytime I hear it. I have been dying to see her live ever since...

That's a really great story, and what a wonderful outcome. On stage she is a tiny woman with an enormous voice and an even larger smile. She would probably be really touched to hear about your friend and her little one.

I know she would, I just know it. She just seems so real and unspoiled by her celebrity. She seems genuinely honored to be where she is.



I told Mr. Adams a similiar tale about one of his songs when my own little one was very sick. He told me I was an asshole.

Are you serious B? I know a few of you had tumblr drama with Ryry, but I didn't realise he was that much of a cretin.

In fairness, that wasn't all he called me.

He's a odd man, for sure. I approached it all wrong (not knowing what the hell tumblr was- I thought it was a fan site) and I posted (my first post) my opinion of his lousy show with Oasis.

He came at me guns blazing, it's really startling.

So I started 'talking' to him giving my reasons (and apologizing) for being disappointed in his show... and he must have written 3 pages about how I 'must have mistaken him for someone else' and I was an "asshole" and 'people expect too much' from him.

Needless to say my first tumblr experience was a wild one.

Patty Griffin knows his type....

"You're a sad little boy, anyone can see you're just a sad little boy
That's why you're carrying on that way
Why don't you burn it all down, burn your own house down, burn your own house down
Try to kill your own disease
And leave the rest of us, there's a lot of us, leave the rest of us
Who wanna live in peace to live in peace"

This is new to me - Patty and Melissa Etheridge performing 'When It Don't Come Easy". Good stuff.

I don't have all of her cds, but my favorite so far is Impossible Dream. Though I don't think you can really go wrong with her...

We are Pattying TBY

And tangled up - like taperoo said, all her albums are good. Living with Ghosts is her debut album although either Impossible Dream or 1,000 Kisses are equally good starting points and probably more indicative of her overall sound.

Re: The Patty Griffin Appreciation Thread

Rumour of the week is that Patty is dating former Led Zeppelin rockgod Robert Plant. This might explain why she is touring with his Band Of joy instead of working on a new album. Good luck to them.
