Robert Hunter

Same here GRTUD, he isn't posting on his site very much. I think he's writing. This week I just got a broadside of Ripple I am going to frame and a copy of his book Idiot's Delight. I had the pleasure of shaking his hand at one of his shows. That is an honor, just like having that dollar bill that the good Dr. Hunter Thompson signed. Not often in life does one get to interact with one's heros, one of the great lyric voices of our time. Have you heard the Jim Lauderdale CD he wrote the lyrics for?

wow

3rd time dropping acid, 2nd time at Nokia, 1st time seeing Phil (hey I'm only 16!) and it was the most amazing night of my life. Shakedown Street was more groovy then I ever could have imagined and what were the chances he'd play Help On The Way/Slipknot (my favorite songs in the whole universe). Seriously last night was so wonderful I can't even put it into words. Thank you Phil and to all the kind heads that shared their pot with me last night. Peace to all.

One More Thought

The entire concert in NYC, I was thinking about Robert Hunter and how much I miss seeing him. Robert, if you're out there, I love you too brother. Thanks for everything you've given me through your music. I can't tell you how much it has meant to me.

Sound Resonator Tests

GRTUD left me with the job of describing Phil's bass. I spent some years of my life building what I thought were sound resonators capable of making sound that would change the fabric of time and space. I wasn't fully successful but Phil has succeeded and mastered this device. "Dark Star" was almost too much for me. I almost lost touch with reality at several points and mercifully Phil turned on "Franklin's Tower" and saved my mind from being "lost at sea". GRTUD also left out the very touching version of "Ripple" in his review (I even have pity on him, knowing the all out effort he gave "on the rail" - the guy truly never gave AN INCH the entire show). The crowd literally had tears of joy in their eyes as we all communed with our own spirit worlds. "Uncle John's Band" was equally heartfelt but more raw edged and equaled the spirit emanating from fans, basking in the supernatural glow that only music can provide. What a great show! Never had such a good time, in my life before...

Yeah marye! He was great! Also, I meant to say, baritone sax (I know it wasn't alto, sorry my brain is still in NYC).

Ryan Adams - Encore Posting!

I can't say enough about Ryan coming out to thrill us Monday night. It takes real skill, patience and a love of music to mix in with our crowd and he did so in spectacular fashion. I can easily say that was the best "Wharf Rat" I've ever heard and the "China Cat" and "GDTRFB" were off the hook, as well the other tunes. Thanks Ryan for making the night even more special by playing for us. You're awesome!
