Just because I don't want anyone thinking I'm still confused over Whirlwind Heat; They're basically one of my favorite bands. 12 year old me does not equal 17 year old me.

I just learned that the Black Crowes ex-(and hopefully future) keyboard player Eddie Harsch, who is probably the best living keyboard player on Earth, was in the Detroit Cobras a few years back when the Crowes were on hiatus. I knew he was from Detroit but I didn't know he was in this band.

I hate the Detroit Cobras.

They just cover really obscure covers that really weren't that good to begin with most of the time and they don't make them any better. I don't like their singer much either.

I don't think it has anything to do with King Khan and BBQ. It has to do with being sucky and obnoxious. :)

I disliked them waaaaaaay before the whole King Khan and BBQ thing went down. I saw a bootleg DVD shortly after joining the forum and I found the singer to be obnoxious and she really put me off.

Rachel Nagy is a bitch. She is one of the most visually and personally unappealing people I have ever seen on a stage. I hope she is not like this in person, for her sake.


Update: She is. :P

Yes. Thank you.
And you can probably find posts from me trashing this band several years before the whole KK&BBQ Show incident. They're like some huge joke.

THAT IS A CROCK OF SHIT!

Say what you want about the Cobras, but they do pick really GREAT old SOUL / R&B songs.
Nathaniel Mayer (a detroiter) etc. Shnagri-las, Shirelles, Irma etc....
I don't think you've heard the originals.
but you sure can pretend.
Isn't the latest issue of NME waiting in the mail box for ya?

The D. Cobras are what they are...they sound like a cover/bar band...nothing to despise, at least I don't think,
I probably wouldn't go out of my way to make it to one of their shows nowadays, BUT their stuff doesn't make me punk and gag
like some people are putting on..on here...Other WAAAY worse shit is praised on this board CONSTANTLY.

If the dweebs who like Regina Spinchter or the YEAH YEAHS YEAHS are talking shit about the D.Cobras, you have NO ROOM TO TALK....THAT SHIT IS WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAy Worse.

so to rest my case,
I'm not a huge fan, probably not even a "fan" but they are nothing to start a hate thread about.
its like dissing on a decent karaoke singer.!!!!

my 2cents: detroit cobras have a good back catalogue. ok, they're a cover band, they're not cool, and the singer is (by all accounts) a bitch, but i don't really see what difference that makes to me. i mean it's not like i'm her friend / touring with her / going to her shows! it's just a cd at the end of the day. i think sometimes people are asking too much in looking to form some personal attachment with these people they've never met, and probably never will meet, through their music. if i based my musical purchases on if i thought i would like the individual members of the band or not i don't think i'd buy half of what i do... but maybe that's just me.

and anyway there's no need for things to get all heated in here about it - we'll all just have to agree to disagree :lol:

Here, here right on man, right on-

and while the singer may be an absolute cow what effect does that have on their sound? none
it's all just kk/bbq resentment to bring that point up-

No one said she was a cow, people called her a bitch, and yes, tone of voice and delivery has a lot to do with your music, so being that annoying would ruin it. You're sadly mistaken if you think what's in here is KK/BBQ resentment, sure, it may have added some (not too much the tour was almost done anyways) but the people who criticized the cobras in this thread have Im fairly certain all expressed distaste for the cobras well in advance.

I know Leo hasnt liked them for a long time, Shaylee and I both walked out on them at their dallas show almost two years ago because they were playing horrible, couldnt get their shit together and we'll be damned if the singer could shut up and do something other than make really bad jokes. And hell, tron probably didnt like them over 7 years ago.

Cool, they do covers, they even do obscure covers, great, but your claim of it being KK/BBQ resentment is blind stupidity.
