  The Lost Dogs vs Lost Dogs Band

The last time the Lost Dogs were here in Athens GA (Mike Roe was here last night and it reminded me of this story) was in October of 2004. The local music rag, the Flagpole, mentioned who was in the band and where they were playing.

A few months ago, a friend called me saying "Hey! The Lost Dogs are in town!" playing at some bar. He and I were both surprised because the appearance didn't show up on their tour calendar, and in fact, the LDs were not even on tour at the time. I went out and got the Flagpole, and sure enough, it said the Lost Dogs were playing, with Taylor, Roe, and Daughertry specifically mentioned. We weren't about to miss out, so we headed downtown, me with my stack of CDs for them to sign.

We get to the dive - I mean, bar - and pretty soon this awful big-hair heavy metal cover band comes out. A half hour into the set we realized that someone had screwed up. It turns out the cover band was the Lost Dogs Band (see thelostdogsband.com for an idea of what we witnessed), but the Flagpole had pulled the old Lost Dogs band lineup from their database.

Needless to say, my friends - whom I had convinced HAD to see this show! - were not very impressed. The moral of the story is that The Lost Dogs band is not the same as the Lost Dogs Band. You gotta watch what you're doing!

I wouldn't be to happy if I went to see the Dogs and it turned out to be just a bunch of dogs. Tongue

Think Buddy Miller used the name a long time ago.

I actually got a concert video once someplace that had the name "The Choir" on the label, turns out it was some other band that later changed their name.
