Biography

There are roots-rockers and then there's Webb Wilder. The self-proclaimed "Last Of The Full Grown Men" is large enough for the big screen, hip enough to star in cult classic B movies, and tough enough to maintain a devoted worldwide fan base through a relentless never ending tour schedule. More Like Me, his first collection of new material since 2005, is classic Webb Wilder, an ... Read more in Amazon's Webb Wilder Store

Editorial Reviews

Born To Be Wilder (recorded live at WorkPlay in Birmingham, Alabama) captures the full flavor of Nashville-based roots rocker Wilder's live performances: booming baritone vocal delivery, blazing guitar licks, and a punchy rhythm section, overlaid with a healthy dose of his quirky humor.

Wilder has been called "a kind of Tom Petty for the trailer set" (San Francisco Chronicle), though he describes his style thus: "We play both kinds of music, Rock AND Roll."

Format: Audio CD
This is a great live show recorded in August 2005. It captures the energy of a Webb Wilder and the Beatnecks show.

Webb and the Beatnecks sound great. The lineup on this CD is Webb on vocals and leading the triple guitar assault with Tony Bowles and George "The Tone Chaperone" Bradfute, Tom Comet on bass and Jimmy Lester on drums.

I am a big fan of the man and the band and I must say it is one of my favorite CDs.

Don't just take my word for it. This is what the press has to say about Webb and the Beatnecks:

If bands were cigarette brands, Webb Wilder and the Beatnecks would be Lucky Strikes. Unhyped, unfiltered, and probably dangerous in large doses. - Macon Telegraph

"If Webb Wilder and his band are passing within 300 miles of your town, don't miss them!" - Vintage Guitar Magazine

"Wilder is one of America's most interesting characters, with a credo to call his own, raw talent, charismatic personality and rabid cult following." - Country Standard Time

"Webb Wilder might be lacking in a few things - such as massive record sales and mainstream notoriety - but confidence is not one of them. First of all he has a credo. Wimps don't have credos. Wilder also nicknamed himself 'The Last of the Full Grown Men' partly because he's a fairly large dude, partly cause other guys are sissies." - Broward-Palm Beach New Times

In closing:
Webb Wilder: Great Man.
Webb and the Beatnecks: Great Band.
Born To Be Wilder: Great Music.

If you ever get a chance to see Webb, go out and catch him if you can. One of the most entertaining and talented acts out there. Witty, comical, honky Tonk'in, Rock 'n Roll'in and at times, yes sensitive. Live Big, Rock Hard and don't forget the glasses.

I can't figure out why Web isn't as big as Tom Petty. His songs are great. They are clever and they rock. Webb is so unique and so much fun to listen to. This live album takes you to a typical concert and it's a party. If you want to boogie woogie down the highway, check this out.

I had never even heard of this guy but he can flat out play...and a great band. Perfect for a long drive. Just don't speed with the songs.
