At the conference I’m attending the closing event featured performances by Snoop Dogg and Lynyrd Skynyrd (not together). Snoop isn’t my thing but seeing Skynyrd live is almost a spiritual experience, especially with the way they handle Freebird (with video of Ronny Van Zant singing the second verse while his hat is placed on a microphone stand.  There’s only one original member left, plus Ronny’s younger brother, but they still sound great.
who is the original still with them?

Went to the Kennedy Center this evening to see another Nat, it was called Nat King Cole at 100. They had a birthday bash for Nat.  Featured a 4 piece quartet of a guitar, bass fiddle, piano, drum, the NSO and some singers including Nat's younger brother Freddie who had turned 88 this week (and looks every bit of it). They rolled him out in his wheelchair and he sang a few songs, actually sounds a little like his brother. The other notable singers were Dule Hill of West Wing and Suits. He did a good job singing and tapping. The crowd went nuts. Patti Austin did a great job also.  The other 2 were ok. Nice show and the musicians were on point. Great seats with free tickets, nice.  :)

Everyone needs to listen to some King Diamond at some point this month. No exceptions.

If you are a Skynyrd fan, check out this week’s Chris Jericho podcast featuring a long interview with Artimus Pyle.  Pyle goes into a long story about the 1977 crash and its aftermath.  He was on the plane and was the only survivor who could walk afterwards. While seeking help at a nearby farm house he was shot in the shoulder by the owner who thought he was an intruder.  Riveting stuff

Do any of the older DC people here remember Danny Gatton? The Master of the Telecaster and the world's greatest unknown guitarist.  I saw him at a club on Connecticut Avenue whose name I can't remember (somewhere near Cleveland Park) a few years before his death.

I want to say it was on the east side, but my memory may be failing me. Ireland's 4P's was on the west side, wasn't it?

Yes. There was another place on the east side just a little south of 4P.

watched the US Festival highlights from 1983 last night on AXS.  I caught Quarterflash, Triumph, Missing Persons, and U2's performance of Sunday Bloody Sunday, The Electric Company, and I Will Follow.

Fantastic stuff (except Missing Persons).

Richard Thompson can still bring it live and solo at 70. Gotdamn is that man a real treasure.

Saw him last winter at the Barns (Wolf Trap) doing an all-request show.  Everyone gets a slip of paper, writes down a song and drops it in the hat on the way in. He draws randomly, and plays the song.  If he needs help with lyrics or whatever, he hands it off to an assistant who runs offstage and prints off a crib sheet and he does it a song or two later.  Amazing ability to do so many great songs so competently.

We didn't even know it was a request show when we went - he played two nights and one was his own stuff.  I didn't care about other people's stuff, I put "Wall of death" in the hat, he drew it and said "finally someone knows I have my own songs" and he ripped of a fiery version.  Awesomeness.

Apparently he was too shy to promote himself much.  He named an album 88 Elmira St, which I presume is a former address.  My folks lived just a few blocks away on Joliet St. SW when I was born, moving across the line to adjacent Oxon Hill in 1960.

He really pulled out some deep cuts when I saw him last. Guy is easily one of the nicest guys out there.

Brian Johnson's "A Life on the Road" on AXS is really good.  I watched the show with Billy Joel tonight, and then the one with Mark Knopfler.  Definitely worth checking out if you are fans of the artists he interviews.  Other shows are with Mick Fleetwood, Paul Rodgers, Sting, Nick Mason, Roger Daltry, Joe Elliot, and Robert Plant.
