The date of the next jam is Tuesday, December 26, 2000.  Have a Jerry Christmas.

 

It was another mish-mosh night as we are in the holiday season and out of the political wrangling season, Indian summer style.  Larry was late and didn't make it till Duprees.  Andy was a no show, probably based mostly on the pending snow storm and our unimpressive performance from last week.  Maybe vice versa.  Anyway, we started and ended the night without our traditional bevy of lead guitarists.  Larry was missing for first five and the last two songs, experiencing PDLS, post diner liquefaction syndrome.  His egg sandwich probably soaked up the excess butter I tried to put on Kevin's cheese burger cheese omelet. Johnny is lucky he didn't eat that thing.

Tommy was there doing an inspirational job as usually.  He's getting good on those bongos as there seemed to be a lot of songs he didn't sing tonight.  Tefillin Ken was there for the first three song and was off.  Dave was there with my POD for the first songs till Larry got there.  We had the long Riders on the storm epic which went places after if fell into a groove. 

Getaway was marginal to better than would be expected with the makeshift lineup.  Looks like Rain  was off kilter but also had some moments. Thanks for letting me take my first Looks like Rain lead of my life, well at least with you guys.  Lazy River Road had a nice sound till it fell apart at the end due to a lack of structural integrity.  Rider on the Storm was Dave's wet dream.  Let him tell you the gooey details.  I'm already nauseas.  Picasso was the last song without Larry, at least until he lost his intestinal fortitude, and it too seemed to work and hold for most of it.

Duprees was pretty good and tight and Tom Thumb worked into a nice climax.  I always thought Larry and Tom had many similarities but when I heard they both used "If I had the World to Give" as their wedding song it confirmed my theory.  The song was almost there but can use a little work.  It is a beautiful song.  Each of them, and there are only three or four live versions, is super hot with long runs of Jerry notes at the end.  Check them out.

Deal was good, it had a nice bounce and the Victim was tighter and bouncier than usual.  Second set Birdsong Other One Birdsong was long, hot, never meaningless and complete.  I liked it.  The jams had some nice harmonies in them.

Snow for the second week in a row going home.  This one was cake unlike last week and was a neat sight on the way home.  Giants win the division some how and have home field in their hands if they win Saturday.  Go Big Blue.  Rumors of Christine Todd Whitman as head of EPA under President G.W. Bush.  It makes a lot of sense.  The country is going to be in good hands, so it seems.  Happy Hanukkah, Christmas and get psyched to play our last jam of the year.  Number 51 jams in 2000 if any one's counting.   We also did 51 jams in 1999 and 53 in 1998.  What is the over-under for 2001.  I say 32 unless some other miracle hits us.  The Freakabies need butter for their rice balls.

yes my "goo-filled, guitar playing" dream did occur...thanks to all of you for that....just to add to the mystique...that was the first time i played it on the electric guitar, those 17 practice runs were all on the acoustic...anyway thanks again.........i also thought the LLR was pretty good......"32" seems like a good number (you should be a bookie gind)...i'll take over with one condition, that a jam is a jam if at least 5 of us are there---5.1 if you included johnny-neg

Wow Gind, you wrote an epic! You made me laugh at some of the notes too(post diner liquefication syndrome). Riders on the storm was perfect...I have been playing with David on and off for 20 years and he never nailed a tune the way he did Riders on the Storm! I never heard him play lead guitar that way! (sorry Dave, but it is true) He also did a nice job of drums sans Scott on Shakedown. I also had to laugh at Larry when he was sooo happy to be back at WWI that he did not let me sing for quite a while! He had to get "it" out of his system. Shame on Kevin for not playing World to Give. It is a groovy song that I think Jerry intentionally made sound like JOhn Lennon. The boys only played the tune 3 times in 1978 (I have them all of course) and then it was over, he never got the groove. Yes, grate guitar work on the end of all those showings. Birdsong>OO>Birdsong was nice. Next week is my "birthday show" and I get to pick the setlist! where is my sheet music to World to Give??.....

You mean get pshyched to have your last hour and a half meal in the WWI basement of the year, don't you Larry?

Go Giants, go Republicans (sorry, Penny) and good luck in the studios. It's really going to hurt when you're paying fifty bucks an hour to sit around and do nothing. The studio will appreciate the lack of wear and tear on the gear, however.

Later.

That may be why you make money in the first place, Dave, but not me. I'll have no part of paying to sit around and watch you guys gorge yourselves.

Yes, dammit I'm coming tonite. I'll bring some cards so I can play solitare during the humungous scoppy breaks. When it comes right down to it, I really do love Deadstein, it's just be come a collosal effort for me to get there. To go through it all to witness what happened two weeks ago drives me nuts.
