Celebrating 20 years of Deadstein

This was a pretty momentous week of Deadstein as it celebrated the 20th anniversary of Deadstein's first jam on October 9, 1990. For the occasion we had Larry Brent, Deadstein's original lead guitarist, back in his lead seat. It really was a surrealistic experience playing with Larry again and thinking back to those jams now spanning two decades ago.

There were too many guests to name them all and probably the only ones I knew were Ken and Stu as well as Michael. We also had Jeff, who played with us last week play with us this week who came with his friend and connection to us, Peter. The rest of the peanut gallery was suspect and Alan probably picked the right week not to show. There was a lot of guitar going on and a lot of mischief. One off those assholes probably tore down part of the bathroom and will be a neg-black eyed on Deadstein's steal your face.

I mentioned that Jeff was jamming with us and last week we geared our setlist toward his style. This week, celebrating the 20 years, we had no such mercy. We decided to play the entire setlist that we played 20 years ago which was big and meaty. Even when Rich asked for some mercy on the setlist for a You Win Again, I also had no mercy. I was determined to finish the setlist from 20 years ago. It took us until 12:15, but we did it all the way through the Going Down the Road. It was a good thing Russ was there to help out with the drums because I don't think Scott would have made it all the way through on his own, but this week, Scott was going strong at the closing. It was a big night of music and scop only to end with the neg-scop of the bathroom incident. WTF.

Anyway, look forward to another 20 years of jamming, the first 20 was a life saver and we will all need a life saver for the next 20. It all starts next week unless we have been kicked out of Carroll's. Whose friend was that bozo
