Patterson Hood & Mike Cooley of the Drive-By Truckers Take Your Questions!

Chris Klimek

(Okay, my questions. But still.)

The Drive-By Truckers are one of my favorite bands, and I've had the privilege of speaking with singer-songwriters Patterson Hood and Mike Cooley on several occasions during the last three-and-a-half years. I talked to them again, separately, for Washingtonian about their plans for their year-ending three-night stand at the 9:30 Club, which kicked off last night.

One of the things we discussed was Cooley's two-night-only battlefield promotion to full-time frontman when Hood fell too ill to perform just before a weekend of 9:30 Club concerts in February 2009. I reviewed the first of those shows for the Washington Post.

FURTHER READING: My first interview with Hood was in May 2008 for DCist, and I spoke with Cooley for the first time in February of this year.

Anyway. I'll be at the 9:30 watching this great live band play tonight and tomorrow night. Say hi if you're there.
