How could a band that came to be in the heart of the 1990s alt-rock spell find a footing and a following without a guitar player? That's what Ben Folds Five did, and the band's reputation continues to remain in good standing despite just one album released from the group in the past 15 years.
Folds himself has put out plenty of music, much of it esteemed. Chip Patterson, sportswriter at CBS Sports and a Ben Folds Five freak, joins host Matt Norlander to gab about a group that still clearly has plenty left to say. Darren Jessee, Robert Sledge and Ben. Let the trio play on. Ben Folds Five fans are proudly anti-emo but geeky in their own right at the same time. For those of y'all that wear fannypacks: come on. Give it a listen.
