I think it is time to this highly underrated band to gain its own thread. I have notice at least some members like this combo too (Jimmie D?). Who else digs this unique blend of american music?<br><br>ARf ArF aRF

I remember liking Truth and Soul a lot, but then they started swapping out personnel and what I heard from that point on was inconsistent at best. Are they still alive?

The albums I know best are "The Reality of my Surroundings" and the "Give  Monkey a Brain". I like both very much...

Love Fishbone! Definitely one of THE greatest live bands Ive ever seen...They were awesome....Truth And Soul is a great album, and The Reality....is good too, but not a patch on TAS....I gave up on em after Give A Monkey... was released, as I wasnt into that at all.....I would tell everyone here to go see em though!( if theyre still going that is! )....

I think Fishbone are great.  Truth & Soul is by far my favorite, but I haven't heard alot of their newer stuff.  The Amsterdam DVD should be kick ass.<br><br>I had a chance to see them but missed out for some retarted reason.  <br><br>Rocky George, former Suicidal Tendencies guitarist is playing with them now.  <br><br>That should be interesting.<br><br>God, I can't believe I missed them.

Early Fishbone was raw and fantastic. Truth and Soul is still one of my all-time favorite albums, and their live shows are full of energy. Somewhere around the release of the single Sunless Saturday my interest began to wane, but I still hold the group in high regard.<br>I think the original drummer for Fishbone now drums for Justin Timberlake. If that's true, I wonder if he plays shirtless so the prepubescent audience can see his massive Fishbone logo tattoo on his back.

Truth And Soul is a great album. The Reality.....is good too, but not quite as good.

I thought Give A Monkey...... was awful.

One of the best live bands Ive ever seen though....

I have limited knowledge of Fishbone, but I think "Sunless Saturday" is an amazing song (from the album Reality of My Surroundings). I also recall liking the faster songs on Truth and Soul, and "Party At Ground Zero" (an early hit) still gets played on the radio over here quite a bit. Nice band - not quite my cup of tea, but I definitely respect their talents.

After sharin' some nature with Norwood, the bass player, he gave me his home address and thumbs up to record from the soundboard. It's an outstanding recording (which I EQ'd), if I say so myself.

I saw Fishbone at the first LA Street Scene in I think 1980, they brought out their good friends who had just formed a band to jam on some songs with them...The Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Where's that documentary?????

You know, talk about the band that can't catch a break:
They re-united for a Pepsi commercial, and they're only on it for like TWO SECONDS... and, they don't even use a Fishbone SONG!!!
