“When it comes to his music, some people undoubtedly will find Alligator Dave's songs offensive and well past the boundaries of decency.
He routinely writes about sexual escapades and the joys of smoking marijuana. He has been told more than once that he's going to hell for the songs he writes and performs.Alligator Dave's response? He doesn't have one.
"Some people just can't get past the lyrics. I'm not worried about them and I'm not going to change."
The unfortunate part for people who find Alligator Dave's subject material intolerably outrageous is they're missing out on a talented musician.
His bluegrass style, mixed with elements of reggae and hip-hop, features masterful finger-pickin' guitar licks.
Second only to the comments about his lyrics, Alligator Dave said people approach him to compliment his guitar prowess."It differs from person to person, but usually they say, 'Wow, that guy's really good on the guitar, but he's got some nasty lyrics.'"-email@example.com.”

“This whole CD is vulgar, fun, shocking, and ladies it will explain men completely. Everything they think about, how they act in situations, that is what his CD's are about.Not only is it funny but it also is perfectly constructed, perfectly in beat and in tune the entire time. I love it… this is definitely not a CD that you play with your parents or children, and it is most definitely a CD for mature audiences only. If you are not offended easily I guarantee you will love this CD and the vibe it puts out. -Renee Caldwell, www.theeasttexan.com”
“Three years after his terrifically addictive Stoned and Confused, Alligator Dave has once again put out an album that will shock, appall and entertain. I Drink, a collection of 14 songs about debauchery, drinking and drugs, uses all the usual themes of previous Alligator Dave songs --crass and perverted lyrics combined with wicked-slick guitar picking-- to create an instantly recognizable sound. Whether you like him or not, his style is both lyrically and musically original to the extreme. - www.pegasusnews.com”
