The Dave Matthews Band fan community has been abuzz about the Phillip Phillips Dave Matthews mannerisms on American Idol. Here are a few clips including Phil Phillips lesser seen solo performance where his Dave-esque´ dancing and facial expressions show how much of an influence Dave Matthews has been to his budding musical career. After a few performances, and following Phillips’ cover performance of “In the Air Tonight” (originally by Phil Collins), Judge Randy Jackson mentioned that Phillips reminds him of Dave. A few weeks later, Phillip Phillips covered the Dave Matthews Band song, ‘The Stone.’ Phillips Phillips’ raw talent carried him to be the winner of American Idol in 2012. Dave Matthews commented in an interview that he had not seen Phillip Phillips perform, and joked about Phillips imitating him. Dave said, “I wouldn’t imagine that imitating me would bring any quality of popularity, but that’s OK if it does.”Read the rest of this entry »
Boyd Tinsley was on TMZ last week – a busy week in the worlds of Dave Matthews Band fans. We received the official announcement of a new Dave Matthews Band album releasing in 2012, with Steve Lillywhite tapped as producer. We also received the Dave Matthews Band tour dates for the Summer of 2012. Some of these topics were mentioned in this TMZ interview with Boyd, which is just funny to look at… Boyd Handled the reporter/fan with prototypical DMB class.

If there isn’t a new Dave Matthews Band album being recorded in 2012 with Steve Lillywhite producing, then us fans are reading far too deep into the tweets. In the tweets (pictured) Lillywhite seems pumped about traveling “west for a while” and Stefan tweeted about heading up to Seattle after New Years Eve. The tweets alone are nothing to write blog about… but my grapevine was also buzzing about the January 2012 studio sessions with Lillywhite before I noticed the tweets. Though I try not to post rumors on this site, seemingly enough info is out there to place Dave Matthews Band in the studio with Steve Lillywhite next week.
Edit: The album has been confirmed by the band to be released in 2012 and produced by Lillywhite.
Here we have the Dave Matthews Band Halloween video, professionally shot at the Atlantic City DMB Caravan. DMB opens his version of Halloween with an Ants Marching tease and seamlessly bursts into Halloween as the opening snare to “Ants” is completed.
In this vintage video from 2009, Rashawn Ross jumps in and sings vocals during Robert Randolph’s “Golddigger interpolation” within Louisiana Bauou. Dave Matthews and Robert Randolph finished the song as Randolph smirkingly took part Dave’s last verse. Enjoy the video!
