QuotePalace Revolution 2000 QuoteBungo "There were actually two shows that day." I'm not convinced of this. I've never heard of Lou ever doing 2 shows in one day. It is my contention that there was only 1 show that day and the two resulting records (RnR Animal and Live) is everything from that show. I can't explain the advert. Maybe management or the record company w

I have mixed feelings about RnRA and Live. RnRA was my gateway to Lou and the Velvet Underground as a suburban 13 year-old. And it's my favorite heavy metal album ever. But it's so cynical: It's as if Ezrin said "Get the best band money can buy and put Lou out front, drunk as a rat. Who cares if he's mumbling and slurring his words all over the place? The band is so f

Wire, Union Stage, DC 3/9/20 Went with my wife who is wheelchair bound from brain cancer. We were set up toward the back of the room, when a female fellow audient with whom we had spoken earlier asked if we wanted to see the show from up front. She led the way and got people to move so that my wife was able to see the Wire set from against the stage dead center, in front of Colin Newman's

QuoteMingSubu Quotekeefriff99 Quoteab Kenny Rogers folds'em. I almost posted that, but thought some might take it in bad taste. Certainly no sleight meant...great song, and a great reference to the departed Mr. Rogers. My cousin and I have an ongoing contest to get out the first tasteless pun when a musician/athlete/celebrity passes. None are suitable for mass consumption.

Dickey did a guest spot at the Beacon with Tedeschi Trucks Band in 2013. It was shambolic. He claimed to have other commitments last night, like washing his hair.

Quote24FPS Big picture: We've already missed the 50th Anniversary. The Allman Brothers formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969, and released their first album that year. What? Is the 51st Anniversary not commercially sexy enough? We have until the 51st anniversary, March 26, 2020, to celebrate the 50th anniversary. They got together for the first time on March 26, 1969. So the show took pl

The show was smoking! 24 songs in 4 hours, including a 1/2 hour break. Yes, Gregg was missed, but the band was ridiculously tight. Warren handled all the lead vocals except Blue Sky, which Chuck sang. Derek in particular was in top form. The seats that were visible on the webcast looked occupied.

They'll load the set with the later pop hits played in lower keys, with Phil singing from a chair and his son on drums. Seems a bit sad. I'd rather see Steve Hackett's Genesis prog show. He plays spot-on versions of older Genesis songs on which he was featured prominently.

QuoteGasLightStreet QuoteRocky Dijon Again, put it down to speculation only unless mpj200 or Soldatti confirm. The list was: All the Rage, Save Me, Scarlet, Fragile, Tropical Disease, Separate Ways. If this is credible, there are either more outtakes or some alternate versions because there will be at least ten tracks on the Rarities disc. I would imagine THE BRUSSELS AFFAIR with its o

QuoteAquamarine Speaking of the weather, I was there the year after Katrina (the whole festival area had been under about ten feet of water) and the weather was nice, except it started to rain just as Robert Plant was singing When the Levee Breaks--that was a chilling moment. I had the opposite experience. In 2013, it rained for five days straight from first weekend Sunday to second weekend Thu

Fest is at a horse racing track and features 12 stages spread all over the grounds. The food is excellent (hmmm... crawfish Monica). Check out local acts on the big stages early in the day and in the tents. Forget the VIP scene. Be among the people in the mud and stink and rain. Just prepare for whatever's thrown your way and don't whine. Avoid scuzzy Bourbon Street. See live music at n

As long as there's an archive vault, the chance of them fading away diminishes. Consider that we are closing in on the 50th anniversary of the death of Jimi Hendrix, who had about 3 1/2 years as a frontman and released three studio albums before he died. But the endless stream of archival releases helps keep him in the public eye, even where some of those releases aren't exactly wort

They're still in the mix. I like physical products, with cover art, and I can play CDs at home, in the office, and in the car. But I also have use for vinyl and hi-res files at home. I even use mp3s to play in the car and office.

QuoteRam Unfortunately the Allmans. With the deaths of Duane and Barry in 71 & 72, they were never the same band. Not the same, but the Betts-Haynes-Woody ('89-97) and Haynes-Trucks-Oteil ('01-14) lineups were pretty freakin' awesome.

I Keep all my concert ticket stubs in a large plastic box, alligator clipped by year, in chronological order within each year. And for the record: Home printout tickets suck. I try to get old school tickets where I can, even if so getting costs a few bucks in service fees. Don't leave me alone at the chicken farm.

Muddy Waters did a tasty version of I Can't Be Satisfied on Hard Again (1977) when he was a wee lad of 63. That's Johnny Winter on the slide. This version is the last word on tbat song. No others need apply.
