Dan Baird

"Dan Baird used to be in Georgia Satellites. Now he's in the Yayhoos. Here's a bit about them, from Bloodshot's official Yayhoos bio: "Many Fridays have found the Bloodshot staff drinking beer and rocking out. A one-hitter may or may not have appeared. At any rate, the Yayhoos provided the soundtrack. Now, thankfully, everyday is Friday. We're overjoyed to finally be the label of record for this bona-fide, genuine, supergroup of southern-rock and heavyweights. Of course you remember Dan Baird from the Georgia Satellites (c'mon, "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" a guilty pleasure? Hell no, nothing guilty about it) and may even know of his two criminally underappreciated solo records. Fans of the roots-rock know Eric Ambel from the Del-Lords and his ongoing stint as part of Steve Earle's band. Drummer Terry Anderson has played with the Backsliders and bassist Keith Christopher has backed Shaver and currently tours with Kenny Wayne Shepard. "Big Deal." you say, "They can all play their instruments." But it is a big deal. We started this stupid label becuase there was a shortage of bands that inspired us to turn the knob to eleven. They are also one of those bands that rightfully recognizes that all rock music is derived from the ONE riff that crawled out of the sludge on Chuck Berry's right hand. The Yayhoos will have you creasing that ballcap right down the middle and cranking their riff-a-licious sound."
