    From Bradm's mom...

    Just received this email from Bradm's mother Lois today: "We brought his ashes back when he died and until yesterday (Sunday) the urn was in my bedroom closet. To back track, when his Dad died in 2002, Ken was on our condo's Board of Directors and in his honour, a white magnolia bush was planted on our condo property. Steve and I decided to put Brad's ashes around the base of what has become a BIG tree. Yesterday here was a bit cloudy and even though there is a walking a path close to the tree no gardening staff were on duty. We took a spade, loosened the earth and put the ashes around the tree. As you may gather the McFarlane's are not outwardly religious. Steve and Brad were both Monty Python fans and Steve said a few words as did I. We came back up to the condo and Steven found a video of John Cleese giving a eulogy at Python's Graham Chapman's death ( I think it was his) singing Always Look on the Bright Side of Life If you haven't seen it, check out YouTube. It was hilarious and we figured Brad would approve............Lois"

    Never lost power, thank goodness!! Impressed. Wind was totally nuts. The lane had well over a metre of snow, but it got cleared yesterday and i went to the grocery store today!! Velvet was/ is visiting his mom in FL and hasn't been able to get home. He would love to be here logging about the storm!

    This is a great piece discussing how Derek and TAB have been channeling life into their latest music: https://www.houstonchronicle.com/entertainment/music/article/Tedeschi-Trucks-turns-sadness-into-hopeful-14803313.php?fbclid=IwAR1jjlt521OicYCRygXbqgSs5YiP0VWD5nSiioKBqxG2ym6cQx84fllb1ZM

    Heavy news. As integral a part of The Grateful Dead as any non-performer in the history of music perhaps. RIP. "And it's just a box of rain / I don't know who put it there / Believe it if you need it / Or leave it if you dare And it's just a box of rain / Or a ribbon for your hair / Such a long long time to be gone / And a short time to be there"

    But then he has Jeff Tweedy onstage doing a Pogues song, so we are all good? Right?

    Hmmm....well all true that is certainly not how I would boil down my peach experience Fourth year in a row...thought it was my fifth but I think I'm losing count. 😜 The vibe of this festival is one of the best in my opinion. Magical shining people everywhere. You sure do have to work hard and arrive early to get a good set up (in the trees on less sloped, less rocky land) but so well worth it. They continuously put out one of the best lines ups of the year every year...the water park is a huge plus and a hydrating salvation. Yoga in the mornings to work out all that muscle soreness. I also splurge for a massage from the healing tent on most days...some talented intuitive individuals in there. Our first rain free weekend which made things so much easier...cleaner I generally make my own breakfast/lunch. My favourite vendor is Asian Sensation....their dumplings and spicy Korean chicken bowl are superb. Thursday night we kicked things off with Aqueous (surpassed my expectations...great set...I'd seen them before...appear to be gaining depth and are on the rise). This was followed by Billy effin Strings....he just rips on that acoustic. I hope he maintains the stamina and lifestyle to entertain us into old age. Caught a set of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong...they're great fun, lots of energy...I eventually get bored but good. Opted not to catch their late night set that night but mostly to pace myself. String Cheese!!! They came out swinging. Thursday was their first of three sets that weekend and every single one was a festival highlight. They just have a little bit of everything that I love. Friday yoga, followed by Infamous Stringdusters (solid, enjoyable set....hard to top seeing them at Nelson Ledges and dancing in the soft sand). Unfortunately missed Cory Wong (opted not to climb another hill and back as I wanted to see Blues Traveler). Blues Traveler was fun but I think I enjoyed them more the last time I saw them at vibes. Nevertheless their hits get everyone moving. Moe.....heard so many people expressing indifference towards moe. I don't get it. To me they are still a straight up delightful rock/jam band and I enjoy them every time. Seeing them in a bar is my preference but that's true for most bands. Two more magical sets of String Cheese, followed by the Allman Betts Band. I thought they sounded great! Both the allman covers and originals. Just happy to see that music kept alive. Didn't make it to Saturday yoga...in large thanks to the brahs who decided to plug in and amplify music throughout the hills at like 4 or 5 in the morning or whatever it was. If you're going to do that (and please don't) at least be good...or even mediocre. It was terrible. I heard they got busted by cops on the following night. While I wouldn't wish that on anyone and don't know what they were taken down for, I was pleased this charade was a one time performance. Ended up being a late start by the time I got into the music. I was disappointed to miss both Ghost Light and Stephen Marley....but there was a heavy night in store. Lettuce>Greensky Bluegrass>double dose of TAB> followed by JRAD. I couldn't have been more blissed out. TAB was a definite festival topper for me. We had anywhere from a half dozen to 20 Canadians clustered at any one time and I got a huge kick out of watching people get sucked into, energetically lifted, or just plain out puzzled by our 'infectious' swirling energy. I believe we were excellent ambassadors. There's always a few Americans that want to come home with us lol. JRAD's set was also a tonne of fun despite missing their master conductor. I was choked to hear of that very shortly before they were to go on, but congrats to the Russo family. Sunday we packed down....wavered back and forth because it is the last thing you feel like doing on day 4....almost stayed another night but was really glad to have a clean bed, shower and hotel to go to at the end of the night. As a result of the pack down and slow moving haze we were in we missed Yonder which was a shame. Caught the end of the Inaugural Guitar pull and had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Stanley Jordan. What a tasteful talented player. Next up was Marcus King Band. This is my third time seeing him this year and he was cookin' as usual. Truly one of the greatest vocalists of all time in my opinion. I ended up missing most of Warren and Grace but really needed a massage and a swim to straighten things out. Made it back in time for good ole' Phil and Friends including Warren, Scofield, Graeme Lesh, Holly Bowling and John Molo. Once they got warmed up they put on a great show. Scofield is still a monster. An absolute privilege to still be able to see Phil do his thing and play with such improvisational mastery at his age. I had the best company one could ever ask for and reflected on that many many times throughout the weekend and how delicate life is and how lucky I have been. Heart is full of love and I always have renewed hope about this messed up world when I immerse myself in this freaky free flowing crowd. And....back to reality...aches and pains and things to do, but never the same. I just try and carry a little bit of that magic through the rat race until next time.

    It is the anniversary of 05-08-77

    You know what really grinds my gears? When this lumberjack mother fucker who would probably be happier in the woods shooting bears, or fishing in some secluded northern Quebec cabin, decides that he isnt going to go off with an insanely hate-fueled rant about his ex or whatever it is he is singing about. Does anyone else remember feelings? Where the fuck did they go and why cant I listen to and watch Brent Mydland piss all over whoever or whatever he wants to piss on? Is this the reason why we have yet to see the infamous piss tapes via the orange buffoon from hell? WTF? Get your shit together people. Brent Mydland is supposed to show and tell everyone his emotions like it is Kindergarten on steroids. Surely we can see, a little bit, but where is the rest of the story? Is he gas lighting anyone who chooses to watch that video? I fuckingly hope not or else I am going to start calling him on his cheezewhiz filled keyboard sounds. What are you doing bahd? Do you really think some of that shit hits? I gots a speedball on my Floridian property waiting for you if that is the case. We were at the show and he purposely took away the one thing that would take away the pain. Brent shook his head at the end to signal the rest of the band he wasnt willing to take shit to the next level with pure evil because he got fucked around and then he died 10 days later which I had to find out from a gaggle of women we hung out with back in the day. Sitting around a backyard pool drinking beers and smoking hash. Welcome to the party bitch. And that is what really grinds my gears.

    First Phish shows I ever did see, Clifford Ball, ended up drinking with a biker who said "If I ever meet Dickey Betts I will punch him in the face." He fucking hated him. Having said that, Esau has posted one of my all-time favorite covers by anyone. Godspeed and God bless and all that stuff people say. I got no problem if this thread keeps getting topped with that version.

    Geddy did an hour-long interview with CBC Radio host Alan Neal. The place was almost entirely full of Rush geeks of all ages. Geddy's hilarious stories were mostly about the interviews he did with other notable bass players when he put together his book, and also about the bass players and music that influenced his playing. He had a funny Jewish mother joke (not the 1st time I've heard him tell it) which earned a round of applause! After a handful of questions from audience members, all attendees bought the book lined up to get it autographed and to bask in his glow for 15-20 seconds.

    Just read the new book by drummer Tom Stephens called Best Seat In The House: My Time in the Jeff Healey Band while on vacation. I couldn't put the book down. There are incredible stories including a tale about getting his big break by meeting & playing with BB King at Expo '86 and a lot of anecdotes of tour antics by Jeff and the band. It's a classic story of the rise to fame and playing with the best musicians in the world. The latter part of the book is about Jeff's transition from a rock icon to a club owner and jazz trumpeter. Jeff Healey died on March 2, 2008 from sarcoma cancer at 41 years old. I've been a big fan as a kid as he grew up in South Etobicoke and we would always hear stories that he jammed at local bars. I seen him play once in Halifax and it was without longtime drummer Tom Stephen who explains how his role as manager/drummer ended very poorly with Jeff. Here's my favorite song: check out the dual guitar solo at the end. Anyone else have any thoughts on Jeff Healey?

    Allman's Tribute at MSG

    Nothing but mega love and gratitude to The Brothers and the original one and only Allman Brothers.... I thought they sounded fantastic. Good ole cheeky fiery gospel. Made me a little sad to see Jaimoe deteriorating but he was clearly happy to be there. Those Trucks brothers...hot damn. Would love to see this line up live if our current collective global panic right now doesn't tank the live music industry entirely.

    I don't usually post here but just wanted to point out these tickets are on presale at Ticketmaster for the next couple of days. Use the code SMOKEFAN I paid 40 bucks for general admission. While they are maybe not technically a jamband I guess. They have been known to drop a Grateful Dead tune in the setlist on occasion and are currently opening for Tedeschi Trucks in Europe. Spread the word. I would love to see these guys come back through Ottawa in the future.

    Radiohead

    Radiohead Public Library! Radiohead have launched a new online archive of their work, called Radiohead Public Library, as well as releasing previously unavailable rarities to streaming services. Hosted at radiohead.com, the site features archival material grouped around each of the band’s nine studio albums, including music videos, live TV performances, artwork and the group’s quarterly w.a.s.t.e. newsletter series. It also links to the frequently bizarre, nightmarish and labyrinthine previous iterations of their website. “Radiohead.com has always been infuriatingly uninformative and unpredictable,” the band wrote on Twitter. “We have now, predictably, made it incredibly informative.” Visitors can create a downloadable library card, featuring a QR code that takes the holder to the website for data protection initiative GDPR. Out-of-print T-shirt designs from each era of the band’s history can be custom-made via the site. Each of the five band members will curate a selection of the archival material on their social media channels this week. The band have also uploaded songs that were previously unavailable on streaming services, including their first ever release, 1992’s Drill EP; the 2005 song I Want None of This from charity compilation Help! A Day in the Life

    Well I guess it's been about three years exactly since I had the pleasure of seeing moe. at one of my all time favourite venues (town ballroom...not a bad seat in the house). Soooo tight as per usual. Sat night's set in particular was a burner but Friday was also full of less familiar jams that put me right in the zone. Ended up about third row centre left both nights. Right in the pocket. And with good sight lines for Jim...im not sure if what he plays is technically considered a xylophone but he is a sonic genius. I get completely entranced by him every show. Ridiculous. Long live moe....

    Agreed on wishing some of them were longer, and also that Dana Carvey was great. I gotta say though that I didn’t enjoy the Neil Young one as much as I had hoped. It wasn’t bad, and I would even recommend it, but it didn’t really go anywhere as a discussion. It was mostly just Conan telling him how great he was in a few different ways. It seems that Conan does better as an interviewer when he is talking to people whose experience is more similar to his own and he can relate to them easier. That said, still worth a listen, and the series as a whole is quite good.

    UdomeU( pronounced you-do-me-you) used to be a song called Mustashat, years ago, when the band was called blue hat cove. When we needed a new band name I suggested mustashat, and everyone agreed, but then we had to change the song name, so, you do me you(UdomeU), is the last word of each of the 4 lines of the chorus. who are YOU, what do you DO, you know ME, I know YOU. We like playing original music and are fortunate that people like our music and still come to shows and dance and have a good time. This is Must Stash Hat's 15th year active. It seems strange to me, cause when BNB celebrated 10 years at the opera house at the legendary show, I though 10 years was a long time. Through the years we have jammed with Mike and Jeff from BNB, Josh, from the Fatties, and Ryan from Diesel Dog. Thanks for checking it out! I feel fortunate to have met and hung out with BradM many times, through the years, and it was a real honor to have him tape and upload our shows from Ottawa. He really loved music. We have over 110 live shows on Live Music Archive https://archive.org/details/Mustashat If you are still reading this and are interested in the current jam scene in Ontario, make sure to see Zuffalo and Roadwaves live. Trust me. Also check out Flat 5 and Conor Gains.
