How cool would it have been if Django Reinhardt lived long enough to perform a cover of Van Halen's Unchained?

Debatable but would say this is his best song. Great voice.

So many to choose from and he continued to write, record, and perform. Incredible talent and dedication. Sad that he's gone.

Hey. Neil and Stephen ain’t dead yet. Good tunes though. 

I had forgotten until reading today that Wooden Ships was written by Crosby with Paul Kanye of Jefferson Airplane.  They did a good version of the song also.

David wrote this one with McGuinn and Clark when with the Byrds. Clark left the band right after and is not in this video. Have to love the hat. Many stations would not play it as a “drug” song.

Crosby and Nash worked with Gilmour on Gilmour's "On an Island" solo album and toured with him afterwards. Here's them doing Shine on You Crazy Diamond.

My first thought of Bando was not of the As world series but rather the breakup of the team in 1976. He wasn't involved in the deals when Finley sold Rudi and Fingers for $1 million each and Vida Blue for %1.5, butFinley was absolutely right that he needed to cash out those guys with them, Bando, Tenace, and Campenaris unsigned after 1976. They had already dealt Jackson and Holtzman to Baltimore before the season. In the end,  the As lost all of them to free agency with no compensation,  killing the club. That $3.5million could have paid for talent.

Gary Oelze, who helped transform the Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria - once a quiet neighborhood venue for folk and bluegrass musicians - into a major stop for world-renowned acts including soul and country performers, died Jan 23 at his home in Alexandria.  He was 80.

I'd heard he was in poor health, he even missed one of our last shows.  He typically would hang out near the bar with the crowd before being seated inside the Listening Room, and would check tickets himself at the entrance as numbers were called.  Quite personable, happy to share a story or chat.  He wrote a book last year about the Birchmere, which I bought.  Amazing history, walk down the halls and view the hundreds of autographed photos from artists, many who played there before making it really big, some who played there despite being big already.  Anyway, he will be missed and  :pray: the club continues more or less like it is now.  We typically go to 6-8 shows a year there and it would be awful for us to lose that experience.   (we currently have tickets for 2 upcoming shows, Lyle Lovett and Richard Thompson)
