Shorties

The Stroker Ace, Mike Cooley of the Drive-By Truckers, talks to the Riverfront Times. "The 'Southern rock' label doesn't annoy me. When you put out a double album called The Southern Rock Opera, you can't bitch. It's gonna get said, so I'm not gonna throw a fit. We were never really a part of that; we were kids during the Southern-rock period. It's our culture, but we don't want to imply that coming to see the Truckers is stepping back into 1976, though some of it is. Thank God."
