  1. The last of the original Wailing Wailers has passed. RIP Bunny Wailer... https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/bunny-wailer-obit-1035643/
  2. It's 1/3 for "Moderna second dose reaction" at my house so far. We'll find out about me in 3 weeks!
  3. Got dose number one yesterday! Now the whole family has the vaccine. No reactions... Two friends had Covid bad! One (40 years old) spent four days in the hospital with a pulmonary embolism, she's on blood thinners and can only work for an hour a day. The other guy (60 years old) has been down for six weeks, says he still can't breathe. He's working about two hrs. a day.
  4. Yeah, I just saw this! RIP! I been there many times...
  5. My first Allmans show was in 79 in Oakland, been hooked ever since. Check out the July 10 (Usually mis-labeled as the 26th), 1970 version of Mountain Jam with a Dark Star riff and a big Circle Be Unbroken Jam!
  6. RAIN! Finally! It's been almost a year since we got a decent soaking here in the SF Bay Area...
  7. Dude was an obvious SubGenius!
  8. RIP S. Clay Wilson His Checkered Demon comix were the best!

Long epics can be really entertaining and inspiring as you are there interacting as an audience to those musicians. A lot of 60's and 70's bands tried for that "jazz ethic" of never-play-it-the-same-way-twice improvisation; Zeppelin, Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, Yes, King Crimson, and many others. There's a bit of "ya had to be there" to some of those long jams. I saw a '77 show and I enjoyed No Quarter, and the guitar and drum solos, but I do
  10. My youngest daughter got her first dose yesterday, no side effects. My older daughter will get her first dose Friday, my wife will get her second dose that day too. Waiting my turn!
  11. Bill Russell got more rings than fingers!
  12. I believe that there is a "God" or "gods" or a "spirit world" or whatever you feel comfortable calling it. I believe that it is accessible to humans. I believe that "faith" or "belief" has some kind of power.
