The Afghan Whigs

Profile:
A soul-influenced alternative/indie rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio, the Afghan Whigs were formed in 1986 by vocalist/guitarist Greg Dulli, guitarist Rick McCollum, bassist John Curley and drummer Steve Earle (2).

After releasing 6 LPs, a number of singles and EPs and a couple of drummers (Paul Buchignani and Michael Horrigan), the group disbanded in February of 2001, temporarily reforming (with Horrigan as drummer) in 2006 to record two new tracks for a best-of compilation.

In December of 2011, the core group of Dulli, McCollum and Curley announced its reformation to play a number of 2012 concert and festival dates, augmented by touring members Cully Symington, David Rosser and Rick Nelson (3).

The rock/soul interface is difficult terrain to traverse. Most crossover attempts in the idiom have been failures as far as I'm concerned.
The Afghan Whigs have succeeded better than most. Some singers tend to bellow in an effort to sound 'soulful'. Greg Dulli developed an understated croak... an emotionally exhausted male, resigned to his fate. The songs he picked to cover were extremely well chosen.
I must admit - I don't have anyway near a full collection but I always thought that they were the real thing.
