Dan BairdBy Buckshot George
Anyone remember owning the self-titled debut from The Georgia Satellites on cassette back in the 1980s? If not, then you at least heard ‘Keep Your Hands to Yourself‘ a zillion times back then and chances are great that to this day, you’ll hear the song at just about any neighborhood bar that hosts cover bands. Yeah, it was actually a decent song with a cool video that not only played on MTV and FM radio a little too often but even crossed over and aired on CMT (Country Music Television). If that tune or their second minor hit ‘Battleship Chains‘ is all you’ve heard from Dan Baird, then you’ve missed out on a good career in roots rock n roll.

Both albums have since been remastered and re-issued. These days Dan Baird is a busy indie artist and performer as a solo artist, with The Yayhoos and other projects.
