  1. I admit to being very wrong about this. Be interesting to see who they get to play in the rest of the band. And how much tickets will cost. The book is awesome for fans of the crows. Gorman doesn't hold back at all. Some amazing stories about the band.
  2. Only happens if everyone in the band plays for flat rate, except chris who gets 98% of $ from shows, merch and any future albums. Despite what Gorman says, I dont see it happening. Rather the continuing saga of competing shitty crows cover bands featuring various ex members. Cant wait for his book though, who-boy time to air the dirty laundry!
  3. I live an hour away but cant do this year. Have fun folks!
  4. SRV said he was the future of guitar playing because he utilized 5 fingers. All this reminiscing is making me kinda sad about Jeff being gone but I love hearing everyone's stories and fond musical memories.
  5. I had the incredible good fortune to see Jeff sit in at Grossmans Wednesday night jam's many times and he is without question the best blues guitarist I've ever seen. Watching him and other Toronto guitar great Philip Sayce jam was a master class in guitar. Absolutely unbelievable tone and emotion in his playing. Also lucky enough to see his jazz wizards at Healy's and they too were amazing. I was really saddened when he passed but so grateful I had the chance to see him live many times in small clubs like grossmans and his. Thanks for recommendation Jay, will def be picking up that book.
  6. Good job on playing original music and not being a dead cover band. Also, good job on playing this long, seems like you guys have been around forever.
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/may/22/how-to-change-mind-new-science-psychedelics-michael-pollan-review This book is really awesome and gives insight and history into medical and therapeutic uses of psychedelics. Really fascinating and very validating if you have experience using them.
  8. Damn, some serious sad news. RIP
  9. Am I the only RA fan who feels the quality of his work as been steadily declining through the last few records? Some good tracks here and there but overall just not that strong imo. Sort of looking forward to this years 3 releases but I thought doylestown girl was weak...
  10. I showed the video for "Baby Makes Her Blue Jeans Talk" to some female friends and to say they weren't fans would be a bit of an understatement. It's always a cliche to say times have changed but in terms of that video, wow, times have changed. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7iYpboTjtoQ
  11. Wow, TTB tribute. There's a good idea. Definitely need more cover bands. Why not assemble an 11 piece band that plays their own music, rather than put so much effort into attempting to recreate really really good music played by really really good musicians? You got a guy that can play Derek or thinks he can? This I gotta hear.
  12. The ledges is an interesting place. No real rules other than no bottles and stay on your damn campsite area. Also, if you prefer to sleep at night while camping, ledges isn't for you. Amateur dj's don't believe campers merit sleep.
  13. What an incredibly bad idea. Also, no dead cover bands? Isn't every other cover band in the world now required to be a dead cover band? If not, we sure could use a few hundred more. Also it says that the bands are "nearly as good as the original." Wow, that is a bold claim. Can I get my money back if they aren't?
  14. Seeing the hip at the horseshoe in last week of 1999 as a warm up gig for the acc show NYE. Then getting to go to NYE show later that week. Almost bumping into Gord on Broadview ave in Toronto as he was putting his kids in the car and he stared at a giant bandage I had on my nose from a hockey injury. I think he was startled by my appearance as I was by him being Gord Downie. I'm very sad to be in America right now as no one but my wife has any idea who Gord was and what has happened. Thank you Gord for the music. Rip.
