    Booche 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"

    Booche got a reaction from Esau. in Epic Covers   
    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.

    Booche reacted to Freak By Night in So, anyone else saying hello to Geddy Lee next week?   
    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.

    According to the book, Jeff's jumping out of his chair was an ongoing gag.  Musicians would get really close to Jeff and he'd surprise the hell out of them by jumping out of his chair and stealing the show.

    You are correct sir and your prompt to explain what that quote means is required .....thank you DB2.0 once again for pointing out that my intended messages either get lost or misconstruedly misunderstood.........
    The Grateful Dead hit their highest of heights, from my perspective, prior to their hiatus at the end of 1974. "water fallen" in the above context refers to them as slowly dripping downwards, like a waterfall, while "crestmark" points to them having still maintained a peak that had been developed a few years prior. Having said that, any Deadhead will give you their opinion on when all of that happened. Luckily for us fans, they kept having some amazing shows/tours after that point. 
    I could have simply wrote "it was the beginning of the end" but that wouldn't be accurate to how I feel while also sounding too Simple.

    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?

    Celebrated Easter with DaveyBoy 2.0 and Catphish. Porch dwellers with hockey and tunes. At one point their playlist offered the Infamous Stringdusters doing Midnight Moonlight > Bathtub Gin jam. I fucking love that band.
