"Guys like Rosalie and Conolly are good for their respective overall band sounds, but far from "great" players.

"Anybody mention Jerry Roslie? Or Michael Brown [Left Banke]? Rod Argent HAS to be a contender, surely...I like his piano in 'Remember You', alongside the aforementioned 'Just Out Of Reach'. How 'bout John Cale's work…"
Sorry for the late reply... been on vacation and trying to catch up. Anyway, there's not much of a garage scene here in STL, but there are some good bands and venues, and we do get good touring bands coming through town once in a while. I really don't go out much anymore due to family (having two kids pretty much kills your social life) not to mention tinnitus, getting older/lazier, etc. Wash U. is a great school, though, and it's close to the U. City Loop... lots of shops and a couple good music venues. Other areas of town to check out would be south city, including S. Grand and Cherokee St. Record stores: Vintage Vinyl, Euclid Records, Apop Records are the best. The Record Exchange is good, too, for used vinyl (TONS of it there). Bands to check out: Doom Town, The Nevermores, Kentucky Knife Fight... hmmm, that may be about it. Yikes. If you're on FB, join this page: http://www.facebook.com/stlrocknroll
