    Oh wow! That's great news. Now if they'd only venture reasonably close or get back on the festival circuit. Seeing them at hookahville a few years ago was great times
  2. Oh and the Gimme Shelter was also great. I thought the female vocalist owned it. Despite the guy behind me mowing over top of it (and many other songs). Oh and I somehow didn't know that Karl Denson played with them! That was a sweet surprise. The brass in general was great
  3. Sooo...what did you guys think? I had a fun show. So many legendary songs. I thought Mick seemed incredibly healthy all considered. My highlights were the Angie, Dead Flowers acoustic bit plus Midnight Rambler, honkey tonk woman, brown sugar plus so many classics. But Jaimoe you were right I thought the venue was very poorly run. Too bad as the site itself seems decent. Tonnes of room which inevitably filled. I don't even want to admit how long I stood in line for a t-shirt. Only reason I did so was for my son. Ended up not eating at all from 3 on as the lineups were so bad (literally hours) and so few vendors and washrooms for the crowd. To be so under resourced and then not allow people to bring in food or drink and have no water filling stations is shameful. Made me wonder whether the organisers actually ever attend large festival's. But the weather was beautiful and my son was so joyful and pumped about it. He knew how special it was. I actually thought the beaches and glorious son's were pretty good. Those women rocked it. The lead singer for glorious sons had a bit of a Shannon Hoon vibe going on I thought. Some decent melodies going on. I had never even really heard of them before but the crowd seemed to be very familiar with them where I was situated. During their set we were behind some brahs that were diggin it so much it was hard not to crack a smile and hop on their happy anthem train. Not sure what would bring me back to the venue but so glad I was able to be there for this and share it with my son. And super grateful I was able to head north east at the end. I can't imagine the level of nightmare Toronto bound traffic would have been.
  4. Me, me, me, me! My son has been so stoked for some time now. Looks like good weather. Wish the opening bands felt a little more enticing. Could have gone for a Blue Rodeo or something. I've heard Dwayne Gretzky (after show) is very fun, but we'll probably high tail it out of there.
  5. Jesus...and with three young kids at home. That is devastating. Very sad. I can't imagine having to lose someone that way with rumours and comments flying around. I hope all involved find their peace somehow
  6. Awww.....most excellent. Thanks for sharing
  7. It's a strictly high-class affair alright 🥴
  8. I can't remember the last time I saw a roll call thread on here. I thought the occasion warranted one. Soooo....whose in? Limo bussing into Toronto from Hamilton with a bunch of folks and then off to Blossom. Looks like weather is going to be nice which is a feat these days. Excited.
  9. Yes I hear this is sold out. Although no after show for me....resting up for Blossom with any luck. The Gratefully Deadicated Sound System is also doing a free after part at Miss Things.
  10. A new record to be released posthumously...he made sure he had one more kick at the can: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/dr-john-last-album-846783/?fbclid=IwAR30dGT8ATO44N1m9kCeC4u7H39c6GNRrTBKfsiW8notzpjIB0oLNB9kLO0 Here is one window into his second-line send-off....made me cry. Can't think of a better way to fly away
  11. Almost a year later...no curveball this year but looking forward to Toronto and Blossom. Next week folks! In the meantime stumbled across a good piece on the role of phish in paving the way for Bonnaroo https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2019/06/11/bonnaroo-2019-how-phish-paved-way-for-festival/1417421001/?fbclid=IwAR1r8GgVXZZTTsGFNGdgtBroU--_qKzzyE38-YBiYOBliHp-_eqgc6inrjU
  12. I thought this thread was as good a place as anywhere to put this. Guess it's a couple years old but new to me... an excellent piece on Derek Trucks reflecting on the life and legacy of Gregg Allman. Love these guys.... https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-features/derek-trucks-reflects-on-gregg-allmans-life-advice-and-legacy-195079/?fbclid=IwAR37FhzN_i-wHTvFtaWvesW_BSBOtUt_Mtm46uH7yxXpru2AGTcFWtK39DU
  13. Absolute legend. What a life and what an imprint. Sad to see him go. I imagine he will spark one hell of a send off 🎶
  14. And...Adam weighs in...with grace https://www.theaquarian.com/2019/05/29/circles-around-the-sun-simply-serendipitous/
  15. Chris Robinson weighs in... https://www.jambase.com/article/chris-robinson-brotherhood-interview You can count me down for giving a fuck about Adam. Jeez. Having said that not sure I'm ready to watch the Brotherhood dissolve completely. Ball in Neal's court? Everything changes. If only we could all change with some grace.
  16. They have announced their substitutes for the summer tour https://liveforlivemusic.com/news/chris-robinson-keyboardist-sears-robinow-2019/
  17. Billy Strings brings the heat there is no doubt. He really blew me away despite being warned
  18. Long live Willie! He is a living breathing historical archive
  19. I'm really saddened by this. I love this band and they are not CRB without MacDougall. What a blow to not get to experience them one more time. I follow them closely and this certainly appears to be very sudden and disruptive. He has also left As the Crow Flies. Jeeeez.... So grateful for the countless life changing good times I have had with this band
  20. A silver lining perhaps? Kudos to Billy Strings. I hope more will follow https://www.jambase.com/article/cashortrade-billy-strings-partnership
  21. Steve Gorman is going to be releasing a memoir. I will definitely be reading this (love my musical biographies) https://liveforlivemusic.com/news/steve-gorman-black-crowes-book-2019/
  22. Nice post! And agreed on the up and comers. Many of which have already put some respectable time in already. Long live Canjam!
  23. No photos allowed! I'm personally fine with this policy. Just be there folks. Although I do appreciate looking back on others sweet photos. I'd say for the most part though if you are in the audience, I don't really want to have the show obstructed by your phone screen. What do the rest of you guys think? I'm usually so into a show that I wouldn't remember to take photos even if I wanted to. Any rate...Bob expressed his discontent https://www.msn.com/en-ca/entertainment/celebrity/bob-dylan-is-not-a-fan-of-you-taking-his-photo-onstage/ar-BBW38kT?ocid=spartandhp
