  1. I saw him at a concert last night and he is cool, laid-back and lacking the usual high-profile entourage.
  2. They can also go into a tizzy when you take up for Plant, so don't take it personally.
  3. Steve Martin (Bluegrass/Banjo at the Ryman), Alison Krauss and Union Station (Rounder Anniversary) and Kings of Leon. All in one week.
  4. Them Crooked Vultures earlier tonight at War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville
  5. Paul McCartney in Peidmont Park, Atlanta: Amazing. Simply amazing. Two and a half hours of pure magic.
  6. I am going to see Better than Ezra tonight in Nashville. In the upcoming three weeks I also plan to see Dead Weather, and I am ging to a benefit concert featuring Alison Krauss and Union Station, Cherryholmes and The Steeldrivers at the Wildhorse Saloon. However, I am too old and tired to keep up with Jahfin. He constantly amazes me.
  7. Actually I named her Stella after my favorite beer, so a bowlful of Stella Artois would be in order! Haha One of my friends gave her a sip of beer once (when I was distracted grilling burgers) and she hated it. I really hope she turns around in the next couple of days.
  8. I think she knows I am worried about her. I have done nothing but stay in and give her 100% of my attention. My usual weekend routine is quite hectic. We have both been lying around watching tv and resting. I am doing everything I can think of to spoil her. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon. If not, she will need to be x-rayed for kidney stones. The vet tells me she will not like the diet she will go on if she has kidney stones.
  9. My German Shepherd has a kidney infection. I know that is trivial compared to human sickness, but I hate seeing her in pain. Weekend has turned into a bummer.
  10. I saw "The Hangover" last night and laughed so hard I thought I was going to quit breathing. Funniest movie I have seen in years. Pure escapism, no intellectual value whatsoever. I highly recommend this movie an an antidote to a strssful day at work or a bad week.
  11. Looks like you have a great local music scene there in the Triangle!
  12. Not likely on the moving to Tennessee. I do appreciate all the positive attention and publicity he has brought to the Americana scene. Although album sales are flat or down, depending on genre, Americana album and ticket sales have increased since Raising Sand. I fully credit Plant for most of that increase. But there are no indications here in Nashville that he plans to relocate here. For those that are interested in the growth of Americana during the past year, here is a link to a recent statement from Americana Music Association CEO Jed Hilly: http://www.cybergrass.com/modules.php?name...le&sid=6317
  13. Comcast in Nashville moved it to channel 148. Try that one, it took me a few minutes to locate.....
  14. He won't end his legacy in country music. He will finish up in Nashville and be exploring something else, whatever captures his interest. He is nowhere near retirement, and his creative exploration of different genres keeps him young.
  15. Same thing happened to me, I went out for lunch and all the channel names were different on my XM. I did not read my email so I was completely stunned. I am thrilled to be getting Elvis and Springsteen in addition to Led Zeppelin. The Springsteen channel plays a lot of Bootleg stuff and concert music.....hint to whoever is programming the Zep channel.....
  16. I wish they would let some of the regulars on this forum "drive" it, the programming would be much better. I can think of several that could "fix" it because like everyone else, I am getting bored with the repeats. Steveajones, Knebby, Ninelives, Evster.....want to go work for XM/Sirius? Warning: one of the people driving and even DJ'ing the Country stations lives in my neighborhood and she claims it doesn't pay that well, so you probably would need to consider it to be public service.
  17. I really liked all those bands but I liked the Psychedelic Furs too. I had a horrible crush on Richard Butler
  18. When I first turned on Channel 39, I temporarily lost my signal (I was in my car), then the screen blinked "LOADING" for about 10 seconds before it came on. I found that strange. Sorry you had trouble but I think Sirius may be better anyway.
