Maybe it's just me but i get highly annoyed at folks who post shit on dax's page about how much they love acid bath, deadboy, or whatever.
To me, that's kinda like telling Rembrandt how awesome his childhood finger paintings were.

Whatta y'all think?

Maybe they/we/I don't post shit, but love Deadboy and Acid Bath.
I love his recent and new stuff, but the triple crown for me is ITIHIL, PTT and AOO. Putting them on a level with finger paintings (albeit of the insane) is kinda insulting.
This is like saying Metallica's "Master Of Puppets" is like a finger painting compared to the master piece that is "Death Magnetic". no

I agree with you to a certain extent, Kim, but I agree with Doomchild more, I think. For being childhood finger paintings, those Acid Bath albums hold up really really well 15 years later, especially PTT, which is probably my favorite Dax album still. Clearly, yes, he's moved on from those days, so if those songs are all that someone wants to hear from Dax, then yeah, they should probably move on also. But if someone's a Dax fan, what's wrong with telling him you're a fan of all his projects? I'm sure he's still quite proud of the work he's done, and as someone who loves Say Goodnight more than any Dax album but PTT maybe, I'd go absolutely nuts to hear him play Hangman's Daughter or Wither nowadays. Alice in Chains still play songs from Facelift, and they wrote that album back in their fingerpainting days. Maybe the level of sophistication isn't there on Facelift or When the Kite String Pops that is on the newer albums, but I don't see anything wrong with embracing someone's entire career. After all, it was those older albums that made fans of most of us in the first place, right? But yeah, I don't really want to hear people call out for Cassie Eats Cockroaches at a Dax Riggs show, either.

Also, to me, Deadboy shouldn't count as one of those old projects. It's part of his current incarnation in my mind. Maybe not the ITIH stuff, but he's been playing Stop, I'm Already Dead since what - 2003? - and doesn't he still play other stuff from We Are Night Sky? Plus, how many tracks from WSOOBOL were debuted as Deadboy songs?

This is a longer reply than I intended to write. Short version: people stuck in the 90's should move on, but all of Dax's projects are awesome, and nothing wrong with saying so!

very well said, fellas. I see your point. not sure why it bugs me so. (and you KNOW I love all and I mean ALL of Dax's incarnations) I'm just not gonna ask him on his FB where I can find copies of the stuff. I get the impression from the man himself that he has moved on and doesn't like to dwell upon his previous projects (as evidenced by his reluctance/refusal to play said material) ehhhh. whatevs! I think I was particularly bitchy yesterday maybe.. I know. SHOCKING. lol

oh btw Brent, I was talking to Anna yesterday and it looks like we'll be seeing each other at the Earl in a couple months! WHOOOOO!

They only problem I have is with people who haven't bought his albums and yet claim to love him and also the constant random prick yelling "Dead Girl" at his shows.

Can you imagine almost 20 years later a guy is still yelling "Dead Girl" at Dax's shows. One of the best bootlegs ever (06-04-2010, taped by Adam) has a guy yelling dead girl the whole time, and Dax even ascknowledges it at one point.

He goes "That's what she said" LOL

Someone will always yell Dead Girl at Dax shows. To be honest, I would rather hear some drunk hesher yelling Dead Girl, than "Freebird!" lol

Everything that I have heard Dax play, has been amazing. I don't understand why people gotta hate on the man for wanting to write and play new songs. Damn haters.

No I mean a few songs he covers I don't really like(comparatively) his cover but I still like it.
Like "Wall of Death" and "lungs" and "Wave of Mutilation".
Not my favorite covers he has done but I still like it all.
