Holy ****...that was a long way off back then.  For some reason I thought your post was about his first leg.

In this case, I'll let you know how it goes.  Don't know how I'll fare on the psychedelic substance front, but I'm sure I'll imbibe something.

Saw the show last night. It was pretty epic. I'd never seen anything like that.

Excellent.  The show here is about two weeks away.  Very much looking forward to the show.

I was still a little groggy when I posted that, but I'll just say, it was far and away the coolest thing I've ever seen. So much more than a concert...it was a whole theatrical performance.  The meaning has changed a bit, too, so there is more than just spectacle. Instead of being almost self-indulgently introspective about the difficulties of being a rock star, it's taken on a bigger meaning about society and togetherness in spite of institutional and commercial forces. It was just amazing, and really a dream come true to have seen.

Geez, maybe I will have to get stoned to enjoy it.  Sounds way too serious.   :P

Rock Am Ring in Germany was great. Awesome performances by the bands of old, like Metallica, Machined Head, Lamb of God. I'm not much for alternative rock anymore, but Shinedown put up a good show. Tenacious D was hilarious and man, do they have a fanbase in Germany! Unbelievable!

Skrillex was also there. My buddy's all over that guy, but I just don't get it. I mean, R2-D2 can do the same trick.

Anyway, I'm super happy my home town has a genuine, decent venue now (www.metropool.nl). I used to drive 100 miles to Amsterdam to see live music, but haven't been there in a long time, now that I can just hop on my bike and go see whoever I like. Prices are still really fair as well, so I'm gonna see Fear Factory, Soulfly, Gov't Mule for sure :D

Scored 4th row center for the Fresh Beat Band in October - whoo hoo - rock on!!  Bought the party package for my 7 year-old.  Backstage pre-show dance party and meet and greet with the band and a bunch of freebies.  Her head is going to explode!  (Mine probably will too after about the 3rd song)  Those tickets were harder to score than for any other show I have been to.  I have to drive all the way to Ashville from Charlotte because everywhere else sold out in minutes.

Saw Neil Young and Crazy Horse last night.  Pretty damn enjoyable.  Not the most rambunctious crowd I've been a part of, but most everyone in my area seemed to enjoy the show.

Walk Like a Giant was epic and stole the show.

I can't believe I'm just seeing this.  We actually debated taking my daughter when they were here in Dallas.  However, tickets were over the top expensive and my daughter's interest was starting to wane.

A little late in adding this one, but last month I got to attend Love for Levon at the New Jersey Meadowlands.  It was a tribute to the late singer & drummer of The Band, Levon Helm.  Levon passed during the spring, but his dying wish was that his friends and family keep his Woodstock, NY barn / studio running, along with the series of performances called the Midnight Ramble.

This was really an amazing experience, and one of the more moving concerts I've ever attended!  Especially when you look at the roster of artists who turned up:


•Roger Waters (Pink Floyd)
•John Mayer
•My Morning Jacket
•Eric Church
•Ray LaMontagne
•Dierks Bentley
•Joe Walsh (The Eagles, The James Gang)
•Gregg Allman (The Allman Brothers Band)
•Grace Potter (Grace Potter & The Nocturnals)
•Garth Hudson of The Band
•Marc Cohn
•Jakob Dylan (The Wallflowers)
•Mike Gordon (Phish)
•Warren Haynes (The Allman Brothers Band, Gov't Mule)
•John Hiatt
•Bruce Hornsby
•Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna)
•The Levon Helm Band
•John Prine
•Robert Randolph (Robert Randolph & The Family Band)
•Mavis Staples (The Staples Singers)
•Lucinda Williams
•Don Was


The whole show was recorded, and I expect that it's going to be released on BluRay / DVD some time in the next year.  Proceeds from the concert went to helping keep Levon's barn going.
