RE: keller williams/howie day

Yeah, I have read some recent Howie Day interviews and he has a full band right now. He was having a hard time keeping the attention of the audience and filling up big stadiums with a solo looping rig. Some reviewers even attested to that as well.
Considering the fact that he made the cut and is in heavy rotation on the new MTVUniversity channel and is about to blow up big, he probably didn't want to risk disappointing audiences.
Although he has also commented that a full band is giving him opportunities for sounds and textures and arrangements he could never get as a solo performer - though you always wonder if that is just saying what the kids want to hear. He sounds sincere though.
I just got the Madrigals EP myself, and have watched that DVD about 20 times in the last two weeks. I just had it looping endlessly on my DVD player for a whole day one weekend. My 6 year old daughter loves it! Watching him do percussion on his guitar, and sound effects with his picks. . . . .pretty cool.
There is a whole collection of articles on the Howie Day fan site, related to looping, tours, band, etc. (and some teenybopper mags)
