Man, tha’ts a catchy song….got a little blues and a little boogie woogie. Love it.
I was dreading the day he’d be gone. And here it is.
He had so many great songs. As a lyricist, few could match him.
“He was a jazz sage…”
Georgia is the largest state East of the Mississippi. Very long drive to get home after the game for many fans. Even before the advent of ESPN noon games, our home kickoffs were normally in the 1:10 – 1:30 PM timeframe.
We ask for the early games and try to avoid the night games so fans can get home to Brunswick, Valdosta, Albany est
2016 keeps on truckin’ indeed. I don’t recall acknowledgement here of Glenn Frey’s passing in January. RIP my man-
That would be in line with the blog’s stated policy regarding The Eagles.
Blutarsky and Lebowski Baby!
Unaware. Fair enough.
Where might one find said policy?
You can start here.
Officially established here.
Aw shucks, for those of us that might have been under a rock, just please tell us what the “stated policy” is, or tell us where it’s stated.
The Senator saw Dwight Yoakum at the Georgia Theater earlier this year. Peaceful, Easy Feeling was part of the encore. http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/dwight-yoakam/2016/the-georgia-theatre-athens-ga-43f0ffc3.html.
No complaint was uttered. That was very un-dude: https://youtu.be/h1WJqKWqUHQ
And if he posted a comment at GTP praising the Eagles, I’d let him know about blog policy just like anyone else.
I just think it’s funny that you paid good money to see Dwight, who I like too, and he throws Peaceful, Easy Feeling (as an encore) at you. Cracks me the hell up.
I didn’t take it personally. And the money was well spent on the rest of the show, for sure.
I was not there, but based on the set list you got your money’s worth.
Heard him do “Purple Rain” on Satellite the other day. Still not sure how I feel about that.
Thanks for the link to the policy.
Even the taxi driver agrees that Dwight’s cover is better than the original
Follow the link to the Who’s 1970 version. Before my time, but Townsend can flat play.. Great band. Thanks for a heads up into a deeper track than teenage wasteland.
One of the great live rock pieces of the 1960s — and that’s saying something.
Great selection. Did I miss your blog on Cohen passing away? Or is he in the “the band that shall not be named but did have Bernie Ledon in it and does have Joe Walsh in it” category.
LC’s one of those artists I admired more than having an emotional attachment to their music.
Understood, especially the admiring part–just for his ability to write. Only two of his songs, Bird on a Wire and First We take Manhattan, then we take Berlin, do I have an emotional attachment to. First for just being a great song and second one cause it is so amusing.
You are getting very close, Alamosa, to being in having your mouth washed out with soap territory. 😎
Do tell Senator, why the intense hatred of the icons of 70’s rock?
Familiarity breeds contempt. 😉
You mean like “sweet home Alabama” makes me want to kick puppies?
@GC: And bring back those fond memories of having my mouth washed out with soap. Kinda like Christmas Story, except my experience was in elementary school. Hell, I did not know friggin was a bad word. At least it was to my teacher.
It was MY grandma. My dad called people Shithead all the time! How was I supposed to know?
If you have never seen Christmas Story, watch it. Your story follows the movie line to the tee with the Dad and the son.
Forgot to add: Sorry bout the soap, but that is a funny story.
I’ve not seen it. Starz on demand has the Big Lebowski available, I’ll watch that tonight.
