  1. Right on Dave. Keep on rockin' in the free world.
  2. (No edger, thank YOU!)
  3. Oh, Eddie. I've been doing a lot of listening since he died the other day and while I always worshipped the dude - and that never, ever waned - after barraging myself with examples of his playing both familiar (like his solos on Beat It and Jump and that heavy intro to Pretty Woman [Intruder] and..oh there is so much) and new (like that tune he did on SNL, the Hollywood Bowl solo, and several other gems that kept coming up in the feed of every social media platform in existence) and listening really, really hard has elevated my respect for his playing above and beyond even the upper reaches of respect that I had for him before. The dude was such a guitar monster, with a bag full of skills, licks, tricks, and devastating lines that was the size of a planet...it's all really rather incomprehensible and I'm so, so glad I got to share argons with him on at least three occasions. What a privilege. And though we can safely assume that his best musical days were either behind him or would soon be so, Eddie deserved to enjoy many years of laurel-resting, and it's a damn shame that he was robbed of that. But what a blessing that the world will forever have the echo of Eddie's astounding gift to the world of rock music and guitar on-the-whole ringing in it's ears. His memory will always be revered and his influence will always be pervasive. Thank-you so, so much Eddie van Halen, and goodbye.
  4. Wow...I do believe I've stumbled upon the ORIGINAL 40 Main thread. It's like an archeological find!!!!
  5. And our highly anticipated follow-up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fDWC14uPFZ0
  6. Pumpkin (My Cat's On Crack) by The Tummies, featuring drumming courtesy of Rockin' Jay McConnery. Please watch and share. This is my retirement plan. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWU9kUwott8
  7. ...that they are closing down? Anyone heard anything about this? It was just a post on facebook, so no big insider scoop by any means and just as likely to be fiction as fact.
  8. Well now, this is interesting. Any of y'all going?
  9. On Jamcruise I was really impressed with the guitar player from Robert Walter's band. Turns out his name is Andy Coe and he is from Seattle. Someone sent me this link to a show he played at the Blue Moon Saloon in Lafayette, which is a venue everyone should check out. https://archive.org/details/acb2018-12-17.busman/acb2018-12-17t01.flac
  10. Damn...coulda/woulda made it to this show if not for King Gizzard playing in Montreal the same night.
  11. I don't know how to vote.
  12. Anyone know the presale password?
  13. On sale today at 11am (1:30 in Newfoundland)!
  14. Concert spelunking. Featuring opening act Greta Thunberg.
  15. I think it's very interesting that CATS will continue without him. At his request.
  16. Things are going well, I've taken several names off the list and have mailed out almost a dozen packages so far, with several other people arranging to pick things up. I haven't managed to distribute a fraction of the CD's yet, but I'd say it's almost two spindles gone so far. This after the easy dump of about a half-dozen spindles to local musicians last year when I first picked these up. I tell ya, Bradm went to a whole lot of local shows. It's gotta be a record.
  17. I'm trying to get Jay's attention in another thread. If I do I'll mention KS as well.
  18. Hey everyone, I've undertaken the dubious task of returning Bradm's recorded shows to the bands. I've contacted 70+ bands in the last three days but have hit many dead ends. Do any of you know how I can get in touch with any members of the following bands?: A Plot Against Me Azuris Aurum Billy Mayzrk (sp?) Bomb Squad Clark Contact Digs Free Rein Grassroots Deviation Keryn Ellis Mandrake Root (is this the same guys as Chickenhead?) Mike Sasso Moonraker New Shady Groove Project Gold Ron Nick Brad Sarah Metzner Smokestack Sojourn Special Ed Spin Cycle Stefani Jaxsn The Nixon Tapes The Uptown Strugglers Tier Three Tom Foolery Twelve 34 Ubuntu Virgule
  19. I have over a dozen Slowcoaster discs here. Every single show has been uploaded to archive.org but I wonder if the band would still want these cd's? I've been leaning towards not bothering to contact a band if there is only one or two shows and they have been uploaded. But almost 15 discs? Thoughts?
