3 Reasons Why A dcTalk Reunion Is A Bad Idea by Kevin Thorson on 2013-04-13 10:23:13
Obviously this is not something that Jesus Freaks would probably agree with, but hear me out. I've come up with three pretty good arguments as to why dcTalk getting back together is not a good idea. In fact it really would be a bad idea.
DcTalk fans have been waiting for years for a reunion of Christian music titans Tait, Max, and Toby but it has just continually failed to happen. Even after attempts by fans to get them back together through multiple Facebook pages and Twitter accounts every desperate try has fallen short. I used to agree with a reunion and even hoped for it by following or liking a lot of these pages/accounts but I've recently changed my mind.
While a new dcTalk album would be absolutely huge in the industry and would no doubt be extremely successful, I still think it would be an unwise choice. Maybe a one time reunion album sometime down the road could be fine but a full blown touring dcTalk, I don't think so. Unless they do it the way I am recommending which is even better. I'll let you in on that later, but first my three reasons for not bringing the group back together. My three reasons are actually extremely simple and quick.
#1 Reason - Michael Tait is in a band called Newsboys which releases amazing music on their own.
#2 Reason - Kevin Max is in a band called Audio Adrenaline which releases amazing music on their own.
#3 Reason - Tobymac has his own band and releases amazing music on his own.
See it's that simple. If it were dcTalk we would get just one amazing album every two maybe three years. No thanks. I'll take the three. But don't be too sad Jesus Freaks because what I'm recommending or begging for is a dcTalk tour via Newsboys, Audio A, and Tobymac. Wouldn't it make for an incredible short term tour. Play a few cities together, tape one of them live, sell it on blu-ray billed as the dcTalk "Reunion At Last".
Slightly Obsessed #197: Are We Spiritual Darwinists?
Two secular scientists recently stumbled upon evidence challenging their evolutionary assumptions. Do we subconsciously doubt God's power and quietly live a similar Darwinian existence? Are we ready to be challenged to believe in His power to intervene in our lives?
Slightly Obsessed #229: When Pain Is a Good Thing
The pain takes us down and drives us to our knees. We long for relief, for a way out. But in the secret place of suffering, we discover that pain is our friend.
Slightly Obsessed #228: The God of the Grateful
My world had just fallen into a pit. We had a young daughter, four other children, and no insurance. I was so sick that I didn’t even know if I could get to the doctor for tests. Despair rolled over us in waves.
Then God spoke.
Slightly Obsessed #227: Release the Beautiful
As we smiled at the people we met on our walk I wondered at the social custom that requires face-to-face congeniality on a bike path among strangers who would soon be in our respective cars fighting over a lane change. It’s easier to be mad at people when we can’t see their faces.
Slightly Obsessed #226: Triune
In its most basic element, our very existence mirrors His Godhead in trinity. Each person enters time and space as three: body, soul, and spirit.
Slightly Obsessed #225: Why Lightning Doesn't Strike the Wicked
The popular radio host was on a rampage, vehemently damning God. He crowned the diatribe by flinging a challenge at God to strike him down at that very moment. He smugly interpreted heaven's silence as proof that there is no God. But what was really happening?
