"I have to say that the first time I heard The Last Good Year I was blown away! Huge fan of their stylings and song writing, not to mention their chops. Singer's got some pipes as well, which in my book is always a plus. Great band and great group of guys." - Kevin Martin, Candlebox
"The songs are well written with great lryics and the band rocks live. Great group of guys and down for the cause. The Last Good Year is up and coming for sure." - Rick DeJesus, Adelitas Way.
"To me, The Last Good Year is one of the best new acts, that will probably out last most of the rest of bands, strictly because they've got the goods. These guys are the real deal, they're not faking it, and there's not a bunch of machines doing their work for them. I, personally, like what they do and the way they do it. If you're not a fan, it's because you've never seen them. As far as new bands go, I highly recommend them!!!" Jon E. Gee - Bass Player for John Mellencamp/ Ted Nugent
