Damn.He is the happiest dude I have ever seen behind a drum kit.Always wanted a one off show with him,Conrad,and Billy Zoom.Try to wipe the smiles off their faces. Glad I saw his last show(paying crowd pre covid)in Waterville Maine. And I only went because covid wiped out work at the time.Thanks Bugs,you did real good with LL.You will be missed :rimshot:

Open Forum / Bugs has left the band.
« Last post by voodoostrat on November 02, 2020, 01:25:55 pm »
I was browsing my social media late last week and saw a post that Bugs was officially on the road. It didn't really hit me until I didn't see him behind the kit over the weekend. Crazy to think that he was only 2 months shy of a 10 year run with the boys. I will miss seeing him and his warm embraces as I enter the venues way before showtime. Bugs will be missed, his energy, positive attitude and smile will be hard to replace. Hopefully Camilo can swing as hard as Bugs, Conrad is gonna miss his partner in crime.

 "The Third Mind" album is worth seeking out. It shows a different side of Dave's talent as a guitarist. I once interviewed Dave and he said the way to improve as a musician is to play with other musicians. That's why he's gotten involved with different projects over the years, such as the Guilty Women and his album and tours with Jimmie Dale Gilmore. In the latest issue of the American Music newsletter, Dave says he is hoping to tour with The Third Mind in May 2021. Time will tell. The tour has been postponed twice in 2020. It would be cool for Los Lobos try a Third Mind-type of album.

You all hip to "The Third Mind," the recent album by Dave Alvin and company?  I think it would be cool for the Lobos to do something similar, with some extended jams. Really stretch out a couple of tunes in the studio.

Open Forum / your favorite LL percussionist

THIS IS A SAFE PLACE
your opinion is not wrong


when i fell in love with this band Victor Bisetti was LL's percussionist. i really miss him. dude was a real gone cat. i haven't seen him in about 10 years (hung out with him for a minute when he played w/ the Delgado Bros. in SF). dude has a wealth of musical knowledge in his head.

then Cougar arrived, and he shared percussion duties with Victor for a few months. sometimes Victor was the 'main guy' on the kit while Cougar added some flavor on the side. sometimes Cougar was the main guy. they worked together really well. these were the days when 'Volver' = a rotating drum section...Victor > Cougar > Dave > Louie > Rick...fun times

then Victor bowed out, and Cougar was the guy. i miss Cougar so hard. dude locked in with Dave so well...just great instincts. even when he stumbled, he landed on his feet like a goddamn cat. not unlike Victor - he could just make eye contact with Dave and immediately know where to take the jam. i actually can't wait for this pandemic to lift so i can drive down and surprise him at one of his neighborhood gigs where he's playing an instrument i've never seen him play. if you're on facebook, he's a great follow.

Bugs...dude is a living breathing metronome. academically skilled. the 'Disconnected in NYC' album? yeah...those performances were his debut with Los Lobos. crazy. i love the fact that he likes a bunch of pop music that the rest of the guys hate. minicrack loves him.

All,

  Here's a link to Ameri'kana TV.  Last night they had an educational panel that Steve Berlin participated on.   I missed it, so no review.  (Bad Eagles game superseded it.)  Tomorrow night (Sat.)  Los Lobos is involved in telling "the story of American music unfold".  8 p.m. central.  It looks like it's free.  Has anyone watched any of this?
