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

    I spent a surprisingly long amount of time trying to figure out how this would sound before playing it.

    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.

    Esau. reacted to Velvet in 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"

    For me, The Grateful Dead hit those heights at a few different times through-out the years. Different line-ups, new tech, shifting social attitudes, drug addiction etc playing part in the evolution reaching those heights, for better and/or for worse. Forced to chose my favourite era I'd go with 69-72. Choosing a single point in time or even single year is impossible for me.

    Esau. reacted to Jay Funk Dawg in Best Seat In The House: My Time in the Jeff Healey Band   
    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?
