Well, I missed Los Texmaniacs bit have heard a couple of live-streams now via Facebook: Mia Borders and Anders Osborne. It isn't an in-person show but it's interesting, a live TV performance without a studio audience. Tips made through Vendo. Better than nothing!

I am really eager to see what LL comes up with.

Also, Steve Berlin produced the Greyhounds' new album, "Primates". The first released song, "Tune In", is here:

Stay safe.

Just had a conversation with Mando and he told me the guys are trying to do something,possibly on Zoom.Said he`ll keep me informed and I will pass any info as soon as I get it.Not sure of time frame but looks like sooner than later.Hey,the guys gotta be chomping at the bit themselves. None of us has been through this shit before.One thing I would suggest that I have not heard talked about with this fucking virus is not having more than two people in a car.I want to lose my fucking mind when I see 4 or 5 people get out of a car.WTF!Are people really this stupid?I guess so.And it should only be parent/child,spouses,and that's pretty much it.No grand parent/grand children,though with single parents there could be exceptions.And especially no friends.I know we are social animals,but until the stupidity stops,this battle is just going to drag on.And on.And on.Hang in there folks.Be smart and we`ll get through this mess.

Open Forum / Some suggestions for streaming and positive thoughts for John Prine

   I hope all is well with everyone out there and youse are being smart and safe.  Our options for music are now limited to radio, personal collections, streaming devices, and our own creativity.  I miss live music quite a bit and have already realized that some shows that we had planned on for spring and summer will not happen.  No Billy Strings, no Jason Isbell, sadly no John Prine and Emmylou shows for me.  Positive vibes out to John Prine for a full recovery.  I was lucky enough to see him for the first time at a free show with Emmylou back in the late 70's and then afterwards multiple times over the years with one of the best being with Steve Goodman at Navy Pier during Chicagofest.  Lets hope an American icon can pull through this and grace us with more of his essence.
   Recently I came across some videos on The YouTube of a collaboration of musicians throughout the world playing wonderful versions of popular songs called Playing For Change (Song Around The World).  How I missed this earlier is dumbfounding.  The first song I came across while I was on a reggae dive is "Soul Rebel" with Bunny Wailer, Manu Chao and others.  Follow that with Keith Richards and co. doing Words Of Wonder/Get Up Stand Up",  and then a litany of musicians doing The Weight, Higher Ground, What's Going On, Ripple, War/No More Trouble, and then a few familiar faces doing La Bamba, then there is Guantanamera with subtitles in English for gringoes like moi.  Then you can move on to some Natural Mystic with Jack Johnson, Watchtower and more.  Just absolutely wonderful and heartfelt performances.  To see all these musicians from all over the world leaves me in awe.  I never heard of Roberto Luti from Italy playing slide or Vasti Jackson from down south.  Grandpa Elliot?  Who knew?  These are worth viewing on a good monitor with good sound. 
   After you have exhausted those options find Jason Isbell's cover of John Prine's "Hello In There" and give a virtual hug to all our wise elderly sentients, including my 96 year old mother, a WWII veteran.  And if that doesn't get you then just listen to Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's Over The Rainbow with the video of his "Celebration Of Life Memorial" woven in at the end. Mahalo big IZ.
   Until next time take care of yourself and those around you.  It's gonna be tough but we're gonna make it.

That article is especially good because it lists websites that are compiling these virtual live shows and updating the lists daily. Thanks.

The BB King tribute with Dave from last month....webcast

Well, my smart TV is apparently too smart for me but I eventually got things going in time to catch Dave. I liked his different approach to BB King's music. More understated.

Thanks for the tip.
