"Ultimately a hero is a man who would argue with the gods, and so awakens devils to contest his vision." - Norman Mailer
Hands down the best show of this year, and perhaps the best show I've ever seen period. Definitely an Instant Classic: Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, BB King, Steve Winwood w/ EC for Traffic reunion, Willie Nelson, Robbie Robertson, Jimmie Vaughn, Hubert Sumlin, and John Mayer just to name a few. What an extraordinary day!
The Delaware Rag.... Folk Rock / Bluegrass / Acoustic
from Newark/Philadelphia, Delaware area
a very cool band to see.
Tomato Can is a four-piece blues/jazz band featuring 17-year-old guitarist Pat Kane (who's shared the stage with such acts as Johnny Neel and Derek Trucks), keyboardist Mark Bader, and Bassist Jon Pelkey, as well as recently added fourth member, drummer Bill Gardiner. The band's eclectic sound is a mixture of its influences, which include not only blues greats such as Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters, but also John Coltrane, the Band, and Tom Waits Check um out ! :)
Just caught Bromberg in Pittsburgh--great show, great musicianship, great audience--well worth the ticket price if you like roots/folk rock. He is a great showman and the shows are just plain fun.
Check this out if you've got the time.
John for sure brought his ax to the rink this night I'm here to tell ya.
Tour heads packing the rink, having straggled up from the previous show at Shea Stadium in New York, were lacking in sleep but not enthusiasm. The first power chords to 'Twist and Shout' signaled to all that this was gonna be one of THOSE nights. The jamming was intense; the transitions from song to song seamless. The boys were really listening to one another; I'll never forget Paul's bass solo during the jam in the middle of 'Act Naturally.' Ringo's ability to turn on a dime as the band ranged from melodic rock 'n roll to the dissonant outer reaches of deep space had me stoked. I basically never stopped twirling. And then George looked right at me during 'Dizzy Miss Lizzie.' The show closing 'I'm Down' was exhilarating. We headed out into the parking lot exhausted, not entirely sure how we'd make it to Atlanta for the next night's show. But we knew we had just heard something we wouldn't soon forget.
