The New York Times published a story recently about his non-existent upcoming solo album. That may have put him over the edge.

It makes sense in those terms I suppose. He wants the focus to go elsewhere. I think his Twitter posts are the best though!
"Im here for the rock. Folks."
"Gaslight myspace
back up soon, just a server crash, from our end. from all the pretty
backgrounds. nobody panic, there's food in the barn."

It's probably understandable if he's getting sick of people bugging him about solo stuff. I enjoy his Twitter posts too- that one about buying loads of stuff and having a Gaslight Yard sale made me smile!!

It's a shame, though I'm not one to quibble with someone else's decision.

Folk has been part of TGA albums since the beginning, if I think of tracks like 'Navesink Banks' and 'Red at Night'. And Brian is great at writing those kind of songs, as well as playing folky covers of TGA songs. I trust a solo project will be back on the agenda some time.

However, given their current high profile, it's probably better to concentrate onm the rock angle, not least with a new album about to be in the making.

I get the feeling it's mostly a move to divert attention back to TGA as a band. Fallon himself has been getting a lot of attention, both from the media and us fans. Some artists use the band as a springboard to launch their solo careers or think of the band as "theirs" (i.e. Roger Waters of Pink Floyd) while others think of it as entirely a group effort (Jim Morrison of The Doors). Seems Fallon's more the latter.

I think the acoustic covers didn't help and that respect. You hear it's a Gaslight Anthem session and all you get is Brian on his guitar (as much as I love those sessions). Best not to confuse the issue.

definitely too bad that he felt the need to do this but i can understand if it was becoming a distraction. tin pan alley and the blues mary are so great though.

Haha, new tweet:

Thanks for caring though! It doesn't go unnoticed!

At least they were up long enough to be ripped. Because we love listening to them, Brian, if you read this.

Does everyone here have twitter? I just thought we could all reply to one of Brian's tweets and send the same thing back, to get him to have a look round this forum.Becuase he obviously looks at his twitter beacuse he replied to people caring about taking down the myspace. Or is that too stalkerish?

Good point about the Jim Morrison/Doors observation.

that's why I don't understand what Dave Hause is doing. i think he is incredibly talented and i like him solo bu The Loved Ones are starting to make a name for themselves and now the hiatus is gonna hurt them a little
that's just my guess
