The Clash played over the grocery store speakers this weekend (London Calling). I chuckled a little and wondered if The Clash ever thought they'd be so cliched as to be heard in a supermarket. It wasn't this song, but you have to appreciate the irony.

This one is just so fun because everyone on stage is clearly having a "ball". Dave Grohl stepping in for Frank Black while the Breeders play the Pixie's Surfa Rosa classic.

Gigantic


What a gas it was, to see.

It's the Winter Solstice today. For the shortest day of the year, have some Mott with Mick Ralphs laying it down.

got a $70 gift card as a rebate for buying a new set of tires.

So was in Mankato today, went to Barnes and Noble, and picked up the 50th Anniversary Box Set version of George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass."

also got a 3-disc set of the Grateful Dead Live at Madison Square Garden from March 9th, 1981.

go ahead, call me an old hippie. I'll be tripping out (sober) on U.S. Blues....

I'm Uncle Sam, that's who I am; Been hidin' out in a rock and roll band.
Shake the hand that shook the hand of P.T. Barnum and Charlie Chan.
Shine your shoes, light your fuse. Can you use them ol' U.S. Blues?
I'll drink your health, share your wealth, run your life, steal your wife.
Wave that flag, wave it wide and high.

It's a really well done collection. One of my all-time favorite album covers, especially Beatles related.

Went to five Dead and Co. shows in the last couple of years and they finally played US Blues at the last one. One of my favorite songs ever.

Oh... All Things Must Pass is my fav album ever..

My appreciation of Gram Parsons really essentially began through Evan Dando covering him. Perhaps the best is when Dando and Juliana Hatfield perform my favorite track of Grievous Angel.

Remastered version of $1000 Wedding

As long as we're doing $1000 weddings, how bout a thousand dollar car.

I've always wondered if it was the same vehicle for Henneman that inspired Stuck in Indianapolis.

Can't wait! Got a Saturday show!
Looks like the tune is still pretty solidly in The Dead & Co's setlist rotation. I wonder if it's a given that it's played on Saturday gigs?!?

It was at both of the Sat. shows I went to last summer.
