  1. Thanks for posting, like it. Didn't know Dion had turned into such a cool old bloke. And you know what this made me think of? That the world definitely needs a fourth Patti Scialfa album!
  2. I'm pretty sure the only "substance" Patti indulges in these days is coffee, and it's been that way for a long time. On the other hand, judging from her books and instagram account, I know the amounts she seemingly consumes wouldn't leave me unaffected, that's for sure ...
  3. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-biden-inauguration-meme-idUSKBN29Q2ON
  4. My top ten studio albums in no particular order: - Bruce, Letter to You - Bob, Rough & Rowdy Ways - Neil, Homegrown - Phish, Sigma Oasis - moe., This Is Not, We Are - American Aquarium, Lamentations - Paul Weller, On Sunset (probably my most-played album this year) - Circles Around the Sun (same) - Bright Eyes, Down in the Weeds Where the World Once Was - Band of Heathens, Stranger Numerous spins also got new albums by The Dream Syndicate, Lambchop, Calexico, Lettuce, Bruce Hornsby, Jason Isbell, Khruangbin, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Shelby Lynne, Emily Barker Live albums: Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets/Live at the Roundhouse (totally blew me away), Ghost Light/Cervantes, War on Drugs/Live Drugs Overall musical highlight of 2020: Trey Anastasio's Beacon Jams, an eight-week residency at New York's Beacon Theatre this fall with different musicians coming and going (background vocalists, horn section, strings), acoustic reworkings of many old songs and NOT A SINGLE REPEAT. Check out the pro-shot videos on YouTube, sounds and looks amazing.
  5. I don't think getting into the stadium is going to be a problem at all. But prices of and demand for front of stage tickets are going to be insane.
  6. I'm definitely with the Rainmaker fan club here. On first listen, I was very disappointed with PoP and HOATG - most of his recent albums have had a lackluster song that sounded like filler to me, but two in a row? Rainmaker got me back on track. The different production and overall sound is a bit of a problem here, I agree, but lyrically I think it's one of his best this century. Love the way he sings the chorus, how he rolls the "r" at the end of "rainmakerrrrrr", and that chord change on the second "so bad" (as opposed to on the more obvious first one) pushes it over the top. I can see this working really well in concert, the build-ups to the chorus, the raw emotion. I think it sounds more real and heartfelt than for example his vocals at the end of HOATG. Compare that to the end of Janey or his singing on Back in Your Arms. Just a totally different world.
  7. Anybody remember those stickers on LPs back in the eighties - "Home taping is killing music!"?
  8. This is one of my favorite Phish posters, hell, probably one of my favorite concert posters of all time:
  9. Maybe I'm missing something here but why is it that none of these shows have surfaced on jungleland? Bob's Theme Time Radio Hour was traded heavily back in the days and I'm sure you can still find compilations of all his shows on some tracker. I can't find anything on Bruce's sets. Would greatly appreciate it if somebody could point me in the right direction. Cheers Romas
  10. Third verse of Promised Land, after the solos. Gives me chills every time I hear it.
  11. Have mostly been a lurker, but looking at my profile I just realised that I joined October 22, 2002 - two days after the Rising show in Berlin. Talk about inspiration! I remember that Europe-in-two-weeks-tour to promote the new album back then pretty much knocked my socks off. And to think of all those great Crystal Cat boots that came out of it ...
  12. Yeah, that was related to 2019. However, I don't think Crazy Horse are doing any real "tours" anymore. Neil's last shows with them were all shorter stands with a couple of nights in a specific region, so this shouldn't be a problem if an E Street tour comes along. I'm sure Neil would understand ...
