RE: concert nostalgia and name-dropping
said, Ted. Amen.
Some of you all may groan
at what i'm about to say. Perhaps I say it 'cause I never opened for Santana
(or Cher) or anyone else most folks have heard of. So, y'all can take the
following with a grain of salt.
I can die a happy man (please, not soon
though Lord, I hope) because I've "opened" for . . . or shared a stage with .
. . folks that next to nobody outside of this list (comparatively) have really
ever heard of.
It has been my sincere and great privilege to know and
to have heard play live and up close . . . in no particular order other than
the randome firings of these old synapses in abjsect gratitude:
Brian Kenny Fresno
. . . and a whole lot
more whom you'll have to forgive me for not mentioning.
Just 'cuz y'all
weren't music idols whose names were writ large across the national
consciousness and musical landscape doen't mean that someday some old geezer
(me, hopefully) will not fondly "remember when" back to the halcyon days
of the ''80s, 90s and '00s (zeros?) when looping way still relatively
new (and nobody knew which way it'd go) all of these people were actually
inventing different little bit's of it's vernacular language.
not forget our LD list host/moderator Kim Flint. I've never heard him play. I
don't know what he plays, in fact. But he's responsible for the creation of
this forum and community and had no small part in making the EDP what it 's
been. The very idea kicks my ass whenever I think of it.
Y'all have a
great holiday season . . . whichever holiday it is (or none) and may we all
have a great 2006 to look forward to.
