Carroll's 55th Street - First jam of the new year brings Bill S. in to join us.
We did the 3 Beatle songs with I'm So Tired and Savoy Truffle being new to Deadstein. As Trister stated, you can't expect Deadstein to do too much better on those than we did last night. The Throwing Stones through the Good Lovin' was about 1 hour of non-stop music with transitions and Coffee-Boy was very nervous that the recorder was going to mess up that big file. From the looks of it, we probably got the whole thing. We were even done with the entire setlist with 40 minutes to go leading us to the GarBand songs until Trister's amp said, "enough is enough, I'm out of here." Lots of great out of the body and mind jamming going on and a place for everyone to get lost on the road going to the right place.
Speaking of roads, there was virtually no traffic coming into the city to the drive in was a pleasure. Traffic on the helix outside the Lincoln Tunnel made for a long ride home, but as Scotty just messenged me, "I'm So Tired." In the world, the 9.0 on the Richter scale earthquake in the Indian Ocean with the ensuing Tsunami hitting the coastal areas of Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand killing over 100,000 people. A crazy world we live and and we have the fortune to jam Deadstein through it all.
