I felt I got to know scott at his birthday bash in Chicago last year. There may have been a few factors involved, but Rob K's eulogy was one of the most emotional talks I've ever heard. I felt like I really missed out on meeting an amazing person who went out of his way to befriend as many people as possible and spread his positive vibes to everyone he touched. It was an amazing speech and it touched me and I took it to heart. I wish that you guys would release that audio track from that 7-3 show. Rob K's eulogy should be heard by people who knew scott as well as those who didn't. It was inspiring and needs to be heard and shouldn't be just for the few who saw it in Chicago. As soon as Rob k finished, I instantly regretted that I didn't have my iPhone recording as I would have been able to spread inspiration for years to come to DSO fans and non fans alike. Please release that audio.

Happy Birthday, Scott. 

 

Sometimes those who who live just a short life have a lasting impact. 

 

I’ll find  a sandwich to eat in Boulder and think of your vision.

So funny, I am eating a sandwich as I read this thread. My favorite memory of Scott is at the Grand Opera House in Wilmington, De. A childhood friend’s parents worked there and let me in to take a peek before the show started. I cracked the door from the lobby into the venue and there’s Scott strolling across the stage, belly button first, while the band is getting everything just exactly perfect before them old doors flew back. He was grinning from ear to ear. That is how I choose to remember him.

I have a treasured memory from the NYE ‘04 show at Denver. I was actually able to find room to move up close in the Scott Zone and just remember him playing while looking out over the audience. He had the best grin. It spoke volumes.

Saw him perform one time only, and it was my very first dso show. His energy lured me on the DSO bus, where I currently reside. Been all dragonfly since. I had a boarshead teriyaki chicken, spinach, and multigrain bread for lunch today, in Scott's honor.

thanks Chuck for bringing our old friend to the forefront. ..

 

I think I speak for both Chuck and myself when I say the friendship we formed with Scott went beyond the music... 

 

 

 

Amen.

 

It has been 14 years now. As so many had said in the old In Memoriam section for Scott, he helped found something that has grown beyond belief. This is a testament to both the vision and talent shown by the band to this day and to the fans who help carry the torch on this side of the rail. I am blessed beyond words to have known him and to have been welcomed into this family.

Miss you buddy...he brought so many of us together...a regular guy always wanting to meet the DSO regulars and their friends.....at the time I started seeing DSO in 2001, Scott was dating a bridesmaid that had been in my 1995 wedding...he made it clear to me that he would treat me like family and he always did...wow, brand new in the scene and boom...it was like that!

 

I'll never forget the time..maybe in 2002, 2003 in Salt lake City, he joined me and my buddy Jim in the audience at half time.....I can't remember that ever happening since...if it wasn't for him, there would be no DSO!

      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.

      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

      Has DSO ever played this song? I would love to hear it live
    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
