  2. For 1977, the tickets for the Dallas show went on sale only at the Dallas Convention Center Box Office. For the 1977 Ft. Worth show, the tickets went on sale only at the Ft. Worth Convention Center Box office. Both shows went on sale the same morning. I waited in line at the Dallas site starting at 4pm the previous day. It got very cold that night. I used some Jack Daniels to keep warm. There were two long lines formed to the left and right of the entrance to the Dallas ticket box office, which was inside, unlike the Ft. Worth box office, which was outside. But, by 7am, there were no lines, just a mass of people in front of the doors. I was initially about the 30th person in line. And when I got into the box office area, I was about #30. The ticket office broke their own rules, and out of panic sold the first person in line 100 tickets. Being # 30 in line, the best seats I got were 10 rows back.

    What Made You Un-Happy Today ?

    They are cutting and edging the grounds today where I live. It's a FUCKING National Holiday (US Memorial Day Observed).... Don't they have anything better to do ? ? ? ? Oh, right.... I guess it's not a Holdiay from where they are from (South of the Border, I'm sure!!)

    Does Jimmy Still Play ?

    Jimmy is 75 now. Is he going to get back into playing? Here's a guy, a Buddy "Guy", that's 82 performing last year at Austin City Limits, with another show planned for March 28th of this year. https://www.pbs.org/video/buddy-guy-august-greene-gsyu24/
  8. A Salute to Buddy Holly is the feature story on the cover of the current Texas Music Magazine. HOW A SKINNY KID FROM LUBBOCK BROKE — AND REMADE — THE TEMPLATE FOR ROCK ‘N’ ROLL The Article: http://www.txmusic.com/articles/2009/01/bu...y-changing-game February 3, 2009 is the 50th Anniversary of “The Day The Music Died,” the anniversary of the crash of the flight that took the lives of ‘50s rockers Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper, and finally, the vault of rare Buddy Holly tracks will be opened wide for two multi-disc sets on October, 21st, 2008.

It will feature rare early undubbed recordings by Buddy with his original partner Bob Montgomery, all of his hits, and will conclude with selections from the legendary “Apartment Tapes.” At the same time, Geffen will release a two CD, 59 song set of rarities. This package, entitled, Down The Line/Rarities, will also include both the entire undubbed legendary “Apartment Tapes” and the entirety of the undubbed “Garage Tapes,” recorded with The Crickets in Holly’s family garage. The set is rounded out with outtakes and alternates of familiar recordings by Buddy and The Crickets.

    Presence Reiusse

    My Critique of the bonus photos in the 2-CD package. And please, if you don't care one way or the other about these photos, just pass this post by.... The Booklet: Page 3 has the classic picture of the band before the LA premiere of TSRTS. For the most part, I am disappointed with the photos chosen, considering the amount of photos taken in 1977. The RP on p.4 has his arm rising, hiding his face. Bonzo on p.5 with a baseball cap on. Really?? The best and classic pictures of Bonzo from the '77 tour were with the bowler hat on. Jimmy, on p.5 - what the hell is this revisionist photo?? The hat has been airbrushed. Here's the original as posted on Jimmy's site: But even with the original photo, the classic photos of Jimmy from the '77 tour are with the white dragon suit. P. 6-7 - Seem blurry and color altered. Like this is what I was wanting. P. 10-11-12-13 - Just more of the sometimes out of focus and color treatments I don't like. How about one of Jimmy playing the bow in the green laser pyramid... The CD sleeve - Why is the live picture so grainy? Does Bob Gruen take anything but grainy pictures?? The Pennie Smith one from the rehearsals is rare, but it also appears grainy and out of focus.

  11. I use great LZ songs that *were not* on the Mothership, or Early Days / Later Days to judge if someone that claims to be a heavy LZ fan, is or isn't.

    Seattle 3-17-1975

    Robert was onstage the entire time I believe, but honestly, I was too transfixed on Mr. Page, during that part of the song to have noticed Robert's horizontal depature... They all get bathroom breaks during Bonzo's solo, excepting Bonzo, of course!!

    Things You've Heard From The Audience?

    "Louder....Louder....Louder!!!" As they began their acoustic set in Dallas, opening night of the '77 Tour with "The Battle of Evermore." I know, because it was me from 10 rows back. Robert acquiesced, and gave the index finger up motion, and the amplification for Jimmy's mandolin was raised.

    Colorado and Washington legalize Marijuana

    Young people in liberal states use more cannabis, but have lower rates of dependence https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/24/18196003/marijuana-legalization-politics-health-liberal-conservative Young people living in liberal states consume more marijuana, but have lower rates of marijuana dependence, according to a new study from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. Crucially, this finding is true regardless of whether the state legalized medical marijuana, suggesting that the broader political climate affects how people use the drug. It also serves as a reminder that the effects of legalization will look different in different states. In general, people in both liberal and conservative states are consuming more marijuana. In a span of about eight years, ending in 2011, the percentage of people ages 18 to 25 living in liberal states consuming cannabis grew from 33 percent to about 37 percent. In contrast, the numbers for the same age group in conservative states went from about 25 percent to 26 percent. Similarly, fewer people in both liberal and conservative states are struggling with cannabis use disorder. People with CUD experience withdrawal symptoms like mood and sleep problems if they don’t consume cannabis for a while, and can’t stop using it even if it negatively impacts their life. The rates of CUD fell to 17 percent from 20 percent in liberal states. However, CUD rates only fell to 18 percent from 22 percent in conservative states despite fewer people in conservative states using marijuana to begin with.

    For $25k, it should come with the shirt and the bow. Pants are optional. 😐
