  1. Booche, you keep hanging this bluegrass torture threat over my head. Were you on FORE tour in '87 watching Huey melt faces? Didn't think so. We can agree on Hornsby's greatness. You will never get me to like bluegrass beyond the appreciation for technical prowess. So same level as something like Steve Vai. Lol
  2. Toasted peanut butter and tomato sandwich. Don't knock it until you try it! Breakfast variation: Toasted peanut butter and beets sandwich.
  3. I did not know that! He also wrote Jacob's Ladder. Still prefer Huey's Version.
  4. There's nothing wrong with Don Henley except for Don Henley
  5. Pull the banjolele out of your ears booche. We're going to make beautiful music together. Love this fire/ice relationship. hahaha. EDIT: I swear to god, when I first ready your post I read something completely different. Re reading your post it doesn't sound at all argumentative. You can put the banjolele back in.
  6. The Ottawa show turned me into my 15 year old self and all I heard was GREATNESS. SO SO SO GREAT.
  7. So, I'm going to try and check in here more and participate. I always enjoyed the site but just kinda lost track of it. With Brad's absence, I'm sure there would have to be a lot of new/old people posting to keep the pages turning. I've been plugging away at a solo album for a long time. Never quite sure where to draw the line and put something out. I made this song after a phase of listening to a lot of "synthwave" or just retro 80's music. The first half is very that. Then it veers off in some progressive directions. I used guitar and manipulating it in different ways for most of the sounds really. I made all the sounds on this, played them all, arranged it and of course recorded it. These nice folks at Synthwave Music Channel made me this vid. It is pretty fun.
  8. Great band. Loved the album "Lost in the dream". I definitely got the dylan vibe, but also a real springsteen thing at times. Overall though, I'd sum it up as "Boys of Summer - Don Henley" No not really on that last point but they do remind me of that at times. I can listen to the whole record and enjoy it start to finish. Real nice. Reminds me a lot actually of M83's "hurry up we're dreaming". Different style entirely, but feels similar. Definitely a feeling I enjoy.
  9. the FUCKING HORROR Over the last few days I've just been trying to process this incredible loss to the extended social circle I am a part of as well as the extended community of music fans and musicians everywhere. It has been almost impossible to sit down and put fingers to keyboard because I really wish I could pretend it wasn't real. Brad was, well Brad. A total one of a kind. Legit, straight up unicorn. Based on the many many talks we had about an endless variety of music, I feel that Brad captured and held captive that amazing and beautiful feeling of positivity and endless possibility in terms of his experience of music.( Not to say he wasn't opinionated about things. He certainly would tell you how he felt. Straight faced. No bullshit.) But he was far less jaded than I or (especially) my older music fanatic friends. I feel like he really was just searching for the beauty in the music all the time. I'm sure everyone can picture Brad's facial expression after a set of music he loved. When it came to music, he was passionate. Constanty. In a way I wish I could be. That positivity was all around Brad's character. Guaranteed big hug, a cheers, maybe a shot. We could both go off on whatever guitar player or band had been blowing our minds in between having seen each other. When Brad retired I remember congratulating him and he had the best response... (imagine BradM voice) "Well Dave, in the 90's I didn't go out so much, I didn't have a girlfriend, and I didn't have a hard drug habit. So I saved a lot of money". Indeed! Every time I think about that, I laugh. As a musician, you really couldn't ask for anything more. Someone who pays close attention but is really actively seeking the beauty out of every moment. That being said, if you really stunk it up and managed to talk with Brad before he left, he wouldn't bullshit you. His mark on the Ottawa music community was massive. So much so that I think any of us will have a hard time even comprehending the scope of it. I'll tell my story, but then just imagine the hundreds of other musicians and thousands of listeners that were gifted so much by Brad. I'm very fortunate that Brad took an interest in every musical thing I did or tried to do. If it weren't for Brad, there would likely have never been any nero reunion shows. Because I had to figure out how to play that stuff somehow! lol. I can't tell you how many times I have been thanking Brad at my desk while trying to figure out how I played something. That's really just completely secondary though to the real gifts I got from Brad. I am a completely disorganized mess in terms of my music. I also have failed to plan ahead in any aspect of it. I'm so thankful that Brad recorded things that surely would have slipped into the ether. Brad was at almost every show that I ever performed in Ottawa. He also made it to a bunch of Toronto ones. Just going back and looking at a couple of things I found an early solo show with a song I had written for my infant son. Totally something I had lost track of. I was able to download it and email my now 12 year old son the song to hear. That is really something. Really a gift that Brad gave me. He also recorded a show that was a day after my grandfather passed. I did a cover of Daniel Lanois "the maker". I remember playing a solo in it and thinking about my grandfather and the bigger picture kinda stuff. Upon relistening, the solo isn't great. hahaha. But I know what was happening for me in that moment and I can go back and experience it. Thanks to Brad. Take those kinds of moments and multiply it by the hundreds of musicians he recorded. He really gave a lot. I'll miss him very much.

  11. https://youtu.be/9f_LnA1wWiI I think the title clearly explains that guitar music is over. What an amazing show. Standing next to his amps. Blown away.
  12. Really looking forward to this. Getting Death Cake back in the kitchen is feeling great.
  13. I hear this is a lock again this year: Lobster skinned drunk Vanierian ready to ROCK to classic rock hero and/or fist fight about it. My source is solid!
  14. Not sure if this has been posted here before, or even if I posted it before. It is a GREAT read. Life Is a Cosmic Giggle on the Breath of the Universe http://www.vice.com/en_ca/read/life-is-a-cosmic-giggle-803-v18n5
  15. Was just introduced to this. Love it why I can't embed is beyond me. What's next, being baffled by remote controls?
  16. Thanks for getting this uploaded Brad. The best nero I think I've heard. Glad it's out there.

    I spent four hours looking at properties in Costa Rica and re-evaluating my life. Not some knee jerk reaction to the election but more taking stock of everything as it is and wondering if an escape to the jungle is the best course of action. lol

    The vibes out on the streets were super dark. We all got through Bush and and Harper, so we'll live. I find the saddest part is that he convinced a bunch of down and out blue collar folks that he'd save them. That's never going to happen.
  19. not for everyone. He's an acquired taste https://youtu.be/2k1l-QVRHl0 why oh why can't I embed....
  20. BTW video catches up with audio at about 10 min mark I'm so challenged embedding media it's embarrassing. Hopefully this works. Not sure if it's been posted. Jimmy Herring, Michael Landau and my current fav guitar player Wayne Krantz in a band with Kieth Carlock on drums and some guy who should be mentioned but I'm fresh out of attention for on bass. DEADLY guitar.
  21. Coming up real soon! Get your tickets at Lauzon Music or online here: https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/riverboat-fantasy-featuring-the-hornettes-pleasurecraft-tickets-25850745275 It's the big boat this year. Two levels, Outdoor decks. Smooth living!
  22. How do you all feel about John Mayer? Personally I really love that guy as a guitar player. He's done some great stuff that isn't his total pop dribble garbage. Being not the biggest Dead fan, I'm not sure how qualified I am to say how he's doing, however I've listened to a bunch of shows and been blown away by his interpretation of the guitar playing.
