The Next Great American Band Results – Rocket And The Muggs Eliminated

November 09, 2007 10:56 PM by Joe Blackmon

RocketthemuggsOn the second Next Great American Band results show, two bands were
eliminated and the top eight bands performed a Billy Joel song in front
of the judges.  Franklin Bridge performed the Billy Joel song “Big
Shot.”  John Rzeznik said “Wow, that was amazing.”  Shelia E. said
“Everybody in the house was rocking.  It was awesome.”  Dicko said “You
are fantastic musicians, and I can see why.”

Cliff Wagner & The Old No. 7 performed the Billy Joel song “You May Be Right.”  John Rzeznik said “It was a really great version.  I just expected you guys to you know pound it up a little bit harder.”  Shelia E. said “You guys did a fantastic job tonight.”  Dicko said “I suppose I should be thankful, because I did sleep with half the audience during that song.”

Denver & The Mile High Orchestra performed the Billy Joel song “Tell Her About It.”  John Rzeznik said “That was really, really great.”  Shelia E. said “You guys arrangements are so well done that the songs just flow and it makes it so joyful.”  Dicko said “If you want to sell out arenas and have hit records, I think you are going to have to find something a little different, because it is a challenge recording-wise right now.”

Dot Dot Dot performed the Billy Joel song “Pressure.”  John Rzeznik said “That was a really solid, great interpretation of that song.”  Shelia E. said “I think you guys came back and really did something great.”  Dicko said “That was a terrific performance tonight.”

Sixwire performed the Billy Joel song “She’s Always A Woman.”  John Rzeznik said “That was a really solid performance.”  Shelia E. said “That was beautiful, it was incredible, and you guys are always amazing.”  Dicko said “You are the housewives’ choice.”

Tres Bien performed the Billy Joel song “Movin’ Out.”  John Rzeznik said “To me it lacked a little bit of urgency.”  Shelia E. said “I really, really like you guys as a band.”  Dicko said “I love you too, but I thought that was a bit sloppy.”

The Clark Brothers performed the Billy Joel song “She’s Got A Way.”  John Rzeznik said “That was the most confident performance of any of these songs that I’ve heard tonight.”  Shelia E. said “You guys are outstanding.”  Dicko said “Just fantastic, absolutely fantastic.”

Light of Doom performed the Billy Song “The Stranger.”  John Rzeznik said “That was the best performance that you guys have had.”  Shelia E. said “I really, really love you guys.”  Dicko said “A lot of the older singers can learn a lot from you, you give a 100% commitment.” 

The two bands eliminated from the competition were The Muggs and Rocket.  When host Dominic Bowden asked Dicko if the bands talking back to him last week had anything to do with their elimination, Dicko said “No, I don’t think it’s got anything to do with it.  Unfortunately, the common factor there is death by lead singer.”

    I totally agreed with Dicko last week, and still agree that both the singers of the Muggs and the Rocket were really bad. Both of them have attitude and it is not gonna help if they are looking for music career. Both of them sang flat (very obvious, even my 7 years old daughter pointed out the problem with their singing. They both need some vocal training
    I was afraid that American was gonna make mistake of getteng them through to the next round, at the expense of other good bands. Furtunately, that didn’t happen.

    Having said that, if I have to pick a winner, based on few weeks’ performances, the winner of the first season will be:

    I agree with Moa – my money’s on SIXWIRE to win it all. I really enjoy most of the other bands, they’ve got some great musicians and stage presence. But relative to what Dicko reiterates almost every week, if you’re looking for a band that can span across generations and various musical genre (which will sell records), SIXWIRE is the one that has demonstrated that to me so far.

    I’m betting on The Clarke Brothers or Dot Dot Dot. Sixwire is good too, just not my cup o’ tea. Franklin Bridge is good also, but waaay overrated.

    Muggs… What can I say, I liked them in the beginning particularly for their musicianship, but the singer’s delusional self belief in his singing is astounding, as well as his attitude towards anyone calling him out on the fact that he can’t sing. He’s changed from a sentimental favorite to an annoyance!

    Muggs, Dicko is right: Become a foursome.
