Although I have an E30 now, I just can't stay away from you guys...

Okay... I assume we're talking driving music, so here we go.





But seriously... it depends on what I'm doing. Tearing up the twisties with heel-toe downshifting, braking so hard the front tires try to lock up, and hearing my tires protest through every turn?








^^^WATCH THIS ONE^^^



Am I driving leisurely and just enjoying the breeze?

Thanks for that! I had never heard of him before. His playing is amazing. I had to google him. Shame that he died at such a relatively young age. I'm going to have to see what's available from iTunes.

If you liked that you'll probably eventually get all his work. Some of it is more full production with vocals and more instruments but he's such a gifted composer...... Who also reinvented the acoustic guitar. This piece and many others are just mind blowing, especially if you play guitar.

Start w aerial boundaries, then breakfast....., then live on double planet, then watching..... Then see if you can make the transition to his later stuff. Another one of those that was painfully taken from the world far too early...... Skidding off a rain-slicked cliff in CA in his 325, no less.

I saw exactly one Dead show but they stopped touring shortly after I saw them. I was never a big fan but got a free tick from a girl i was.... uh, seeing at the time. I like em ok, but not a huge fan. I do remember it, though - outdoor stadium show, thunderstorm popped up in the middle and after a big crack of thunder the power went out for about 20 mins. But it was a really good show. And driving home....... from Raleigh to Chapel Hill. Lets just say the long line of taillights in front of me at 70 mph just kind of....... flowed.....

Dead concerts were always a great party (which is probably why people attended a lot of their shows)....we usually took a large roll of clear 6 mil plastic sheeting with us, as it was normal for a thundershower to pop up at any time at those outdoor summer shows. And with opening acts like The Band or The New Riders, plus the typical bizarre "halftime show" of impromptu performers, then the Dead`s typical 5-hour playlist, you were in for a long show....we went prepared.

One of the strangest shows was the Dead`s RFK Stadium, Washington, DC affair....It was freakishly hot....on June 3rd, it was 105 degrees. On the infield of the Stadium, it was probably a bit hotter than that. People were passing ice cubes among the crowd....you would just rub it on your face, then pass it on to the person next to you.

And the Dead just continued playing....they were real troopers about it. The positive energy flowed from the stage to the audience, and back again, the waves of energy reinforcing each other. It was an amazing thing to be a part of....

Good stuff, Riv ! I dig good sax players too....first became aware of David Sanborn when I saw him touring with Bowie on the Young Americans tour....he just lit the place up with his incendiary playing....



Here`s a smooth number with Bob James...

It was June 9th, 1973....the Allman Brothers and the Dead....the Dead played first, during the brutal heat of the afternoon, and the Brothers took the stage around sundown, and played until around 1 in the morning. That was an intense day.....

3 carloads of us had driven down the day before the concert, and we set up camp about a quarter of a mile from the Stadium. After dark, a cop approached us on foot, and said we`d have to move our campsite to the other side of the railroad tracks, a few hundred yards away. Luckily, we had built our campfire on top of a shipping pallet, so we just picked up our fire, and took it with us. There were lots of heavily stoned people walking around, many of whom started following us, like we were Olympic torch bearers or something....it was pretty hilarious....

Thanks Bob! Only recently discovering JD McPherson sent me to the stacks for some older Rockabilly (Revival) and Bluesy stuff. I still get off on this kinda' sound after all these years... Stevie Ray Vaughan, Stray Cats and such. Here's a few others that may not be as much in the common lexicon.

Edit: Hmmm... vids not showing up. I'll try again.

LOL...

There was some great stuff back in (what I assume to be) that era that's hardly a flicker in anyone's memory now (before my time, but I grew up with my Mom's record collection!)...

Slightly before my time. I started going to Dead shows only a few years before Jerry died. Awesome musicians.

Indeed....now it`s up to the likes of Phish, Widespread Panic, and others to carry on....

You know that somewhere, Jerry`s smiling when he hears this one:
