BATTLE OF THE BANDS: “Doing Nothing”/”Doin’ Nothin” Results

In my most recent battle, we featured the Christian hard rock sound of Phil Keaggy against the soft Southern rock/yacht rock stylings of Bruce Blackman, former lead singer of the band Starbuck. This was suggested to me by Stephen T. McCarthy, which I really appreciate, because I thought it turned out pretty well. The voting was lopsided, but not a shutout.

Phil Keaggy: 2

Bruce Blackman: 7

For a while, I thought we were headed for a shutout, but Mike, who liked both about the same and cast his vote for Phil to avoid a shutout, and Debbie, who preferred Phil over Bruce, kept that from happening. Thanks to them and all of you who voted, and congratulations to Bruce Blackman and thanks to Phil Keaggy for providing a worthy alternative.

My next Battle of the Bands will be Sunday, December 1. Be sure and join us then!

  1. JOHN, I’m glad you were pleased with the Battle. I was pretty certain that Blackman would beat Keaggy, and I did worry about the possibility of a shutout, and that’s the reason I hadn’t run with this match-up myself, even though it occurred to me a couple years ago. You seem to be a more courageous BOTBer than I am, and I’m pleased that no shutout did occur.

    In case you’re interested in using it somewhere down the road, here’s another potential BOTB match-up that came to my mind about a week or two ago: ‘Sunday Morning’ by The Velvet Underground with Nico versus ‘Sunday Mornin” by Spanky & Our Gang. Although I suspect Spanky would win, that might actually be a closer contest than Bruce versus Phil.
