Thanks for the re:create appearance...my wife remembers a couple years ago going to your house with the re:create wives. She said she regrets not taking a Third Day bobble head! ;-)

I was there in Franklin and it was so amazing. Just to see the relationship between you and to see you not know what to do was cool. Hope you don't mind me saying that. Thanks for being there with us. Your hearts were the best!

Oh, you may also want to check out my friend Jeremy's blog. I noticed that you have Relevant Magazine in your blogroll and he writes for those guys. His blog is here.



Did I see correctly about a Grammy win?

Hey Mark!

Despite not having met you in the last two days, I am a musician and a blogger and I've I've bookmarked your blog's feed for about a year now. I just don't comment very often!

Have you worked with Nigel James from Ignite? We're supposed to be getting him up to our island this summer (Lewis off the NW of Scotland - Remember Scotland? Saw you guys at Frenzy a couple of years back). We're putting on a youth conference where our band will be leading worship and doing a show.

My blog addy is above if you want to check it out, and you can see the kind of youth events we do at www.xtremeevent.com. We just did one on Saturday and my voice and body are destroyed now!

I'll make an effort to comment in the future instead of reading all your posts in a parasitic fashion!


Iain :0)


Man, I hope you guys still kick it for another 15!


I have also noticed that bands that keep all or most of the same members for years tend to be good bands. Some great bands are around that are together shorter times. I mean, if you get good musicians together, it's not going to be all bad, but there is a cohesiveness about bands that have stuck it out that just makes them a joy to watch and listen too. Third Day is a prime example. Keep doing what your doing because it works. I also appreciate that you assist others. It doesn't go unnoticed at the fan end, I assure you.

BTW, I've mentioned your policy about being home at least every 14 days to some bands, and I think if more of them had that policy it would make a difference. Family is a big reason a lot of musicians quit and it's the best reason I can think of. You have to be connected.

O.K. I'm not only a "motormouth" in person, I'm turning into one on your blog. LOL What would you call that on the keyboards? (Almost afraid to ask.)



Awesome! :)

I like hearing these tidbits about how you guys work together and have all these years. ;)

Sounds cool Mark. Wish I could have been there. Maybe next year.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
