William Weiss Interiors Studio - Scott not getting over his bad foot which wasn't operated on.

  • Dave was back for the second week and it shows continual improvement.  He has these really cool wireless headphone that really monitor the situation nicely.
  • I had no real amp problem for the first time in weeks.  It is amazing was happens when you tighten a few screws.
  • I have my gig with Stormwind's band this weekend.  Two jams. Rehearsal then a party in a house.   All Grateful Dead.  If your are in the Boston area contact me for directions.  An appropriate name to go along with the night's weather.  I'm psyched to get into some of that hot Wind action.
  • Scott delayed his foot surgery so that wasn't a factor.
  • I provided lots of real audio, whole songs.  We filled up Kevin's server so I have to take a different different plan of attact and store the real audio at www.SWIMTechnologies.com where we have a lot more space.  Nevertheless, I am going to post longer versions of the weeks jam and then erase them.  I'll try to save everything on zip drives for prosperity's sake.   In the meantime, I am going to start moving the old real audio files from Kevin's site to mine so not to incur any additional costs.  We had about 6MB of real audio at Kevin's.

  • Considering we just jumped in the playing of the Might As Well, it was powerful and well done.  Few mistakes and one of our best efforts in that song.
  • The Miracle was good, had a better final jam that usual.
  • Bertha was strong and confident.  It didn't have the coordinated big bang in the jam and the verse afterwards, but it wasn't missed either.
  • I didn't get the It's All Over Now on tape.  That's too bad because I was doing some nice G - E - D Rock & Roll Bass stuff, them I figured out my delta blues riff that went real well with this song.  Finally, I threw in my new short stubby, glass slide ("That's what she said") and it was nice stuff.  I wanted to play in but it's just blank tape on my tape.
  • Birdsong ended with a fierce, wacky and wild tour through the metaphysical RP-6.

  • Johnny pulled pulled off the pre jam Carnegie Deli.  Kevin had plenty of complaints while the rest of us stuffed our faces.  All the potato products sucked.  I ended up with a spare pastrami to take home.  You gotta love that.
  • I brought in Entenmanns Doughnuts and Danish that went well with the great columbine/French roast blend Scott brewed up.  Umm!
  • Larry and I had some nice riff trades in the Music.  It was pretty hot. 
  • The Big Railroad was really tight, it moved like clockwork.
  • Ship Of Fools was very nice also.

  • Super strong rain and winds for the ride home.  Flooding on the roads but inside it was beautiful as usual.
