Drove past Hoffman's many times when my kid was going to school up there. Glad to know that it is as fine a purveyor of quality items as it always looked.

Wait, don't tell me...it's a bra made from a slice of pizza...

A good example of just one reason I never wear a pizza bra--it's inadequate to the task.

cool. i'll welcome a blues show for sure.

Matt Fiveash was playing some Buddy Guy about an hour ago that was tasty
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/23/17 3:50pm Michael 98145:

Matt did a fine job
  Wed. 8/23/17 3:50pm Mark R:

Yeah I agree--funky enough for the Duane Train audience but with his own spin on it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 3:51pm Carmichael:

I've seen Buddy Guy twice in the last three years. Took him about 30 seconds each time to start dropping the F bomb. If I did my math right, he should be 83 years old.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 3:51pm Parq:

Fiveash's show always is a blues show, in a manner of speaking, but i know what you man. Cee Dub @ 3:31, titled "White Year" or "A Very Good Rabbit"?
  Wed. 8/23/17 3:52pm Mark R:

Yep he can still play though
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/23/17 3:52pm coelacanth∅:

i practically never hear Matt's show, because of work.

The internet says there were 26 episodes, so ya Ken you're on track.

As I clarified, Wilson's tenure as host spanned 26 eps, but he did not host ep. 22.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 4:20pm Carmichael:

It also says Bob and Ray subsequently hosted an "untold" # of shows. Interesting idea ...

Tim Hardin can tear your heart out. Does that make him an icon of vampire-folk?

Really, it's a little embarrassing. Asking Grampa what he thinks of this new "rock" music all the youngsters love.

i think it odd that Tom had this particular guest....and then it turns out Bret's close-minded to the music Tom plays. he's not going to give it a chance.

And this is "wild and wooly".

He he ... yeah, WAY before. And the flautist stood on his own two feet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 4:29pm Parq:

Not to get so cranky as to take this too seriously, but there is just about no critical comment more meaningless than saying a certain kind of music you don't like "all sounds the same." Here's a news flash - every genre of music there is, and the music of every artist in existence, all sounds the same to people who don't like it. Name your favorite genre or performer; now find someone who doesn't like it/him/her/them and you can bet the rent money that person thinks it all sounds the same.
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 4:30pm Irwin:

Parq: I wonder if Wilson, tho outwardly polite, was cringing during this interview?
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 4:31pm Passaic River Blues:

@coelacanth: right. I mean, it's not like people were banging down Bret's door in 1968, and Tom is playing him the sweetest, most anodyne pop and Bret's still like, "I wanna hear the Andrews Sisters!"

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/23/17 4:38pm coelacanth∅:

why didn't Tom play "sister ray" for Bret Morrison's critique?

Ever see Gene Simmons with Totie Fields on the Douglas show? Historic encounter.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/23/17 4:46pm coelacanth∅:

someone i knew years ago told me she saw Iggy interviewed on a tv show, and when the host asked him what he's been up to, Iggy said something like " oh just sucking and licking mostly." i'd like to find footage of that one.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/23/17 4:50pm Parq:

I remember reading a while back that there's a series of print ads out there in which Iggy endorses -- not making this up -- a line of shirts.
  Wed. 8/23/17 4:51pm ChrisB.:

Is this a preview of Irwin's interview with Sabu?

Tony Bourdain visited Iggy once on his newest series. He laughed that Iggy was selling cadillacs, is a vegetarian and rarely drinks.

This might be the last of the paintings from Hoffman's. Or could be one more. Can't recall if I shot five or six. [Insert Dirty Harry ref here.]
  Wed. 8/23/17 5:09pm Laura L:

Aw, maybe try that lady who's Sabu's agent and ask her if he's feeling better? One year Connie was performing at the San Gennaro Feast in my neighborhood--that's coming right up in Sept...
  Wed. 8/23/17 5:10pm bill:

irwin, is your lee morgan stuff in stereo or mono

  Wed. 8/23/17 5:17pm bill:

you'd be surprised. a lot of the old blue note/impulse stuff that i own from cd does draw from mono masters
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 5:19pm Irwin:

I honestly haven't paid close enough attention. I don't even know if my opening theme is M or S. I just hear the performances and the compositions. And the DRUMS.

Bent knee have a bit too much of an Evanescence vibe for my liking
  Wed. 8/23/17 5:28pm bill:

Byrd is right up there and so is dizzy, but it depends. You have really fast guys like lee and don and dizzy, and then you have guyd like Bill Dixon and Miles, where it is more about carving out space

This Trummors tune is rather awesome.

Saw Bent Knee Live a few years back. They're more like King Crimson than Evanescence
Avatar    Wed. 8/23/17 5:29pm Listening Out There:

Freddie Hubbard played out of tune a good deal. Trumpet is a difficult instrument. Dizzy Gillespie was probably the best bop trumpeter, IMO. (All the Charlie Parker sides...)

The difference is that scaring the shit out of children with a guy with a bayonet through his back is a worthwhile pursuit, while scaring the shit out of African-Americans with terrifying celebrations of Confederate bullshit is not. (Also, the guy with the bayonet through his back is Polish, so insert Polish joke here.)
