    Following up on the maple tree saga, I've had an Arborist look at it - in fact he had lots of "master arborist" titles - and he thinks we can do this. They'll end up drilling through both halves of the split and put a big bolt through there, to try bringing them back together, or as close as possible. Then also there will be cabling connecting the damaged section across to the other large portions of the trunk for support. It's going to be nearly $1,000 but my wife and I agreed we owe it to this beautiful tree that we've loved for over 20 years. It's the least we can do. So here goes....

    Maxwell House

    Pretty adamant about the Maxwell House coffee thing - and completely contradicted by Adria or Annakim who said he never drank it in his entire life. I think we need special prosecutor Robert Mueller to investigate "CoffeeGate". I know he's busy at the moment, but as soon as he's free......

    Yikes! Even if I was a drummer, I don't think I could spring for that kind of money on a kit.

    Tell your guy at Sweetwater about the $800 deal. They are usually pretty aggresive about matching prices. I've only ever beat their price once. And they may have even matched it that time, but I was tired of messing around with it. But $800 must be close to wholesale on those pieces.

    Mike's Instagram is blowing up, y'all!

    Sorry, I've missed the back story on these 2 ladies in the shower with Mike. Who are they? They sure sing nice.
  6. You're welcome. It's not my share, but it was too good to not let everybody that I know become aware of it.
  7. Hi, atse. I'm sure you're aware that all 3 of those songs that you mentioned ("Melinda," "Black Leather Woman," and "Two Men Talking") were released on the "Soundstage" DVD. That show happened within a few days of the Vic concerts back in 2003. And I think Tom considered a new DVD to be an actual release. I'm sure I heard him say such a thing on-stage. Or maybe it's the Mad Cow. Anyway, welcome aboard.
  8. This is unbelievable - especially with headphones on. An outtake of "Alabama", and Neil's Gretsch White Falcon is in stereo at the beginning of the recording. This will only be up for a few days. https://wetransfer.com/downloads/d9f031a0271276807fc48d3d70907df020190218193606/c25ca8?fbclid=IwAR2GGfbUUdKrU37XBjjWfE9BPOaxm-9QJDGtyH5rWLf-k6Aw-gHoUNwRbVU

    That's awesome. I don't have drums, but the Ringo kit would be the one I'd want. We need to play some music, Nurk! Maybe it's time to organize a Mudcrutch Forum bash! See what I did there? Volunteering you to host a big party? LOL

    I'd have to put a Beatles bass drumhead on there. It just looks too cool, and the blue oyster pearl is enough like the black that it would look great!

    Nurk - do you have the Ludwig "Black Oyster Pearl" set like Ringo's?

    Cautiously optimistic. I talked to an arborist today and sent him some pictures. He's going to come by early next week and look closer but he thinks we could absolutely try to save it. So we'll see. I'll report back later on it.

    Superman drawing by Frank Quietly

    My brother has been a comic collector forever and he goes to Comicon and often commissions original work like that picture. It's pretty cool to see original artwork from these illustrators.

    Classic Rock Video of the Day II

    Oh, they should have left the actual performance in there instead of overlaying the studio recording. The video is actually from "The Beach Boys "The Lost Concert" DVD - which was from early 1964 when they opened for the Beatles. Leslie Gore also on the bill. The performance is really good. It was recorded and aired in movie theaters packed with screaming fans. I love the lineup of all white now-vintage Fender guitars, and the blond Fender amps. A time capsule!

    For Real

    Feels like a "Highway Companion" outtake to me. I rarely spend time trying to analyze lyrics, but musicially one thing stands out for me - the song is not tuned to pitch. You have to re-tune your guitar to play along with it. That almost never happens with a Heartbreakers recording. I assume the tape speed got changed for some reason.
