Beloved Irish band the Saw Doctors: Alive at 25 - their loyal fans and ongoing success


You just marked a quarter century with the greatest hits album 25:25. What’s next for the band?

We are going to take a long break. We’re not sure of what the future holds. We’re not going to do more gigs through the rest of 2013. It’s the first time we had nothing planned in the history of the band.

Are you working on new songs?

I go through periods where it’s the easiest thing in the world, and then there are times when nothing comes. I am in a dry period at the moment, though I’ve been collaborating with Padraig Stevens lately.

I haven’t been as creative as I’d like to be in the songwriting department and I want to fix that.

So, is this the end of the band? You’re making me nervous.

If we do get back together we need to have new energy and new songs, and I for one hope that happens. Stay tuned!

The Saw Doctors play on March 14 at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, a sold-out gig at New York’s Irving Plaza on the 15th, House of Blues in Boston on the 16th, and Philadelphia’s TLA on the 17th. Check out the full dates on www.sawdoctors.com.
