  2. 8-12-17 Asbury Park, NJ

    6 PM sharp.There are many great restaurants in Asbury, depending upon what you're looking for. Porta which is right behind the Pony, is an open air bar/ restaurant where most folks will be. Asbury has been revitalized, and is thriving. There is an retro pinball arcade there that is really cool. It's right on the boardwalk near Convention Hall. The beach is very nice also, but in Jersey nothing comes for free so there is a daily fee of 7$ Water temp is in mid 70's. Safe travels,. http://pizzaporta.com/asbury-park-menus/ http://silverballmuseum.com/asbury-park/about/

    "DEWEY" have to?

    I wasn't a big fan of the venue either to say the least. With that said,still found great space thanks to Scott and Kris. There was a hard 1030 curfew. Very short set break. The venue is located almost right in the middle of a neighborhood so there was a noise ordinance in place. I believe they couldn't go over 98 decibels. After Hampton where the walls were shaking that was quite the contrast. The rotating stage was very strange to me also. Has to be pretty difficult on the other side for them. Had such a great time this past weekend with beautiful souls. An amazing journey! Did over 1200 miles on the vehicle. I drove every single one of those and even made it through the checkpoint without a problem. The 5-0 presence in Hampton was certainly there but it wasn't really over the top. HB got pulled over but by the time he was through with them their heads were spinning,and he left like the champ he is. If I had to pick a musical highlight it would be the 4th Street on Friday. Although the band is so good ,and so tight that everything is gold .Post show blues are always rough.Trying to get back to some sense of reality. It kinda slaps you in the face anyway. Twas' a grand ol' time. Be well sisters and brothers. See ya again soon on the playground. Peace.
  5. Summer tour plans

    Speaking of the road. These guys and gal will be hitting it soon. I know how hard that's going to be so soon after laying their brother to rest. I'm sending all the healing energy, love, and light I can to them.
  6. Summer tour plans

    Kevin picked his last song as a regular member of DSO. It's really special, and a big moment in the history of the band. First and only time I ever heard Eaton say " Shut the #%@! up" At least from the stage anyway. Everyone pretty much listened. Ernst filmed this.

  8. Long Strange Trip - the documentary

    https://www.yahoo.com/music/phil-lesh-grateful-dead-doc-172749201.html Phil is always pissing on someone's parade. No mention of Vince or Tom C. at all, and very little on the keyboardists as a whole. I saw it last night at The Cap. The director introduced the film. Definitely a must see for any head. Loved seeing footage I had never seen before.
  9. Questions about DSO?

    So after all these years Robert- were you better off not knowing? Now you can check out anytime but.........
  10. I wasn't able to make this show as we were in the midst of a battle, that eventually was lost. I do know this- I have been blessed to call the folks here my forever family. I love you. Lala so good to see you here!
  11. Count Basie Civic Center!!!!!

    SMOKIN' !!!! As Vegas would say this show was a 3 wringer. Bands energy was way up from the opening chords of Promised, and it didn't let up. Really one of those special shows. Space was tight but found a nice spot with great sound. I thought the crowd was respectful. Say what you want about Jersey, DSO shows up people come out. Doesn't matter which the day of week. No worries for them doing 3 shows here in a short span, you won't saturate this market. Afterall it is the heart of Dead Belt..Blew off Penns last night because I didn't feel like driving 3 hours one way in a monsoon. Plus I have the DSO Open early afternoon, and need to be well rested. Hopping back on for Princeton, Morristown, Boston, Caps, and Wilmington. Happy Mothers Day to all the Mom's in DSO land. See ya on the playground.
  12. Roger Goodell is an idiot

    Both of my knees are torn up badly from years of playing sports. I've had scripts for Percs, and have had Cortisone shots numerous times. I would start off with taking one perc a day, then it became 2, then 3 then 4. You get the picture. I had to tell my ortho not to write me anymore, he was giving them out like candy. The banana boats, like they were nothing. Couldn't shit for 5 days sometimes. It was tough to get off them, but I did. A very close life long friend of mine who I toured with back in the day got so caught up so bad in them he was feigning a serious eye injury, and writing fake scripts in Pa. He got popped once didn't stop him. Got popped again, didn't stop him. Got popped a 3rd time. Bang 5 years in prison. Just got out a couple of years ago. He has seen DSO numerous times. You've prolly met him MC. Was in Foxboro for the Dead one year, had no idea my buddy was on dope. We had rooms at the Red Foxx Inn which was some shit hole down the road. Walked into the ajoining room, and there he was tieing off. I wanted to beat the piss out of him, but there was no stopping him. He wasn't there with us the following year. He was dead. His mother found him in his room with a needle in his arm. I agree with you 100% MC.
  13. Roger Goodell is an idiot

    He should follow the NBA's lead. The whole damn league puffs. And he's an idiot for more than just that issue. P.S. Was looking forward to your annual 350 $ donation to the L.I.T. Fantasy Football league.
