It's A Lazy (Almost) August Friday...

No motivation for a new post.  You should listen to this intereview with the inestimably esteemed John Williams of We Are F#cked

To kick-off the weekend on a proper note, I thought I would share this video of Widespread Panic playing with Dottie Peoples and The People's Choice Choir at the 1st annual Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.  I'll never forget standing there watching this huge southern soul choir file on stage to perform with Panic - it was easily one of the coolest live concert events I've ever witnessed...(Steve Winwood came out in the 2nd set and played piano on two Traffic songs with the band).

Naked in the mud, girl
Let's sling a little mud, girl
Just looking for a place to shed our skins

We're gonna summon the Holy Ghost from the battlefield
And in the morning this old world won't be the same


  1. Dave,

    This is William's chart on GDP and it shows a dead economy for a decade.

  2. Widepread is great to see live! One of my fondest memories was standing in front of the stage at Farm Aid and seeing Dave Matthews on stage performing with Widespread.

    Been reading your blog for quite some time.
    Keep up the good work!

  3. thanks for the feedback DR - I've been to 60 shows LOL. Would love to see footage of Matthews playing with them! There's a good youtube video of Santana playing with them in Calif.
