The Pat McGee Band, Save Me

The Pat McGee Band, Save Me

The Pat McGee Band’s latest album, Save Me, plays like a real rock n’ roll album should. It goes right in the CD player, spins around really fast, and some kind of laser picks up some kind of digital information, and…other stuff happens…anyway, as I was saying, this is a total rock n’ roll album. It’s just like the Goo Goo Dolls, and thank God for that, because Bon Jovi haven’t released an album in too long, and I started to feel like real rock n’ roll wasn’t going to be played anymore. But along comes Pat McGee (and his Band, too!), and boy oh boy, do they put the “guitar” in “guitar rock.” They have drums too, and a bass! Sometimes, they even include sensitive orchestration, which is so cool, because strings aren’t just for guitars, and people who play violins shouldn’t have to be gay just because they don’t play guitar. But most important is Pat himself, because he plays rhythm guitar, and that means that he can sing also with that golden throat, which coats his bittersweet lyrics with rock n’ roll. Pure rock n’ roll. The fact that they even look like Bon Jovi and the Goo Goo Dolls placates my ultra-desire for lover-boys that like to play music, but that never matters unless the band actually plays real fashionable radio rock, and this band does that, too. Thank you, Pat McGee, for all that unoriginality.
