Saving Abel and Puddle of Mudd
August 5, 2015 9:00 pm - 11:00 pmSince 2008 Saving Abel has embodied the definition of “Southern Rock.” Even before their “Self Titled” debut LP, they were barnstorming the country making fans everywhere they went, just by being themselves. Saving Abel are simple, down home, charming, country-boys with immeasurable talent; that was destined to take them straight to the top.
Given the band's radio success - "Blurry" was the most-played song across all rock formats in 2001, delivered on the heels of their breakthrough single "Control, " aka "the smack my *ss song" - it might seem a stretch to call Puddle of Mudd underrated, but they really are. Some judged the band by Scantlin's grunge-meets-surfer shoulder-length hair, while others chose to write them off as little more than a radio band. But those critics have been proven wrong on all accounts. Puddle of Mudd are who they are, and they are not trying to be anything else. What you see is what you get, even if what you see may be, at times, a little blurry.
