    They came close to breaking up from what I hear. I hope they stick it out, because when it comes to rock n roll they are one of the best of the past 12-13 years. I always have a stupid looking smile when I listen to them. They remind me what I love about music, the connection I feel I have with music is ignited when I listen to this band. There aren't many bands I love as much as the Hold Steady. Lyrically they run deep as hell. Love them!

    They were alright in 2009. Don't really need to see em again though.

    I absolutely love their music through Stay Positive, but they're just not as interesting without Franz Nicolay. C'est la vie. I'd probably check them out though.

    Seeing as they're one of my all time favorite bands, I would certainly support and attend an appearance. It makes sense, too, with the new album.

    I don't disagree re: taking a turn downhill over the last couple albums, though.

    I think Stay Positive was very underrated. I agree on Heaven is Whenever and Nicolay though. Does anyone think LFTR PLLR will ever get back together?

    I thought 2009 was a pretty rousing set. I would welcome them back.

    I would miss almost anybody to see The Hold Steady at Coachella next year. Saw them subheadling a festival this past year and it was a 10 out of 10. They even took requests

    Finn's voice was completely shot when they played in 09. They had been your very extensively before that set and it took it's toll. They're one of my favorite bands. The Echoplex show was great. They still sound great without Nicolay though they had to alter Stuck Between Stations to cover the void. The setlist was incredible and the first time I ever got one from a roadie.
