It is always good to see your handle in these parts -- good memories of the good old days, and glad to read that you've got some Good New Days ahead of you. Retirement and sobriety are both huge accomplishments that you should be proud of and build on.
I had no idea that Johnny was writing about Ed. That is absolutely beautiful.
I broke down and saw "The Black Crowes" when they were practically in my back yard this summer. It was good, and it was fun. The band sounded great, incredibly competent, and obviously not even a sniff of the magic that was once there, that the principals never seemed to actually appreciate anyway. It's always been nice to come here to remind myself that others heard the same things I was hearing back then, but it was also nice to have a night out and enjoy some old songs that I've always loved. Its a tough transition to go from loving a band b/c it presented the illusion of endless possibilities that makes you ponder the future.... to one that competently plays familiar passages and centers on nostalgia. It's all part of getting old.
Keep getting Wiser, and hope to see you 'round here in the years to come.
: Retired after 47 years. Four years of Trump and two years as an essential Covid worker kicked my ass. Three years sober on the 21st, tired but oh so wiser for the time.
: Thank you Black Crowes for getting me through 31 years and Pink Floyd for all 47.
: Love live music, having seen everyone from Elvis to Pink Floyd (four times in three different decades all in the last Century) but nothing, NOTHING lit my candle like the Black Crowes. Lucky me, my first BC show was Title Song debut.
: Johnny Colt is publishing a book about Eddie and my honor of meeting him day after 9/11 will be in it.
: Thank you Webmaster for keeping the open sign up.
: Peace out everybody.
