  1. A bit late to this party but a very happy birthday to the reason I pick up a guitar all those years ago as a young child. You and your talents are very much missed and you continue to inspire musicians to this day, 40 years after you left us.
  2. ......and UPS couldn't make their guaranteed delivery date. Paid for 2nd Day Air, too. Oh well. What's waiting another day to me after Tom spent years trying to release it? It'll be worth it.
  3. Hadn't heard about this, thanks for the info! Sounds like a good time Will be great to see Mike and Ben together again. I'll look forward to seeing it. Had the 400 days live stream on in the background tonight while I was busy doing other things. That was nice to see. Shame it was only in 360p, but grateful to get to see it again.
  4. Happy 70th Birthday Tom!! Love you and miss you 🎂 💔 Thanks for everything....
  5. It's only taken 26 years, but mine are out for delivery today! I'm going to avoid reading reviews and reactions to the box set for now and experience it for the first time on my own. I already have the Hi-rez files that came with the box downloaded but decided to wait and listen to them while going through the book and extras.
  6. Hey guys, Sorry I haven't been on in a while. It's been a very busy, often hectic few weeks and will probably remain that way for a couple more weeks. I haven't forgotten about this thread and have been thinking about the show, the question that was asked, and some of my favorite memories. Hopefully I will be less busy and get to them soon.
  7. Just came across this. This is a look at the 9lp boxset, but not the $500 version. Possibly some spoilers, so if you don't want to see it before you own it, you probably shouldn't watch. It was nice to see it, and it makes me even more excited to receive my 5 cd box in a couple weeks. It looks packaged very similar to An American Treasure, so they will look good together sitting side by side on a shelf.
  8. My pleasure and absolutely agree, so sad we will never see this incredible band again. I am beyond grateful for the shows I was able to attend over the years. As for Ron.... haha! No, he didn't pick up a quarter, but that was the first thought that came to my mind when I looked at the picture and saw how he was bent over looking at something on the floor of the stage. "Oooo, shiny!" 😅 Why yes I do own "Ron Found A Quarter"!! Limited SRC 180gram marbled vinyl with ultra limited reproduction quarter collectors coin, just like the one Ron found! Memories... so many memories. They are all still so fresh in my mind like it happened yesterday. There are little things such as, I can hear the crickets chirping in the trees to the side of the Bowl. Perhaps a more significant memory is that I can remember word for word Tom's greeting to the crowd before playing Rockin' Around With You. The videos posted on Youtube claiming to be the final show in full use the opening from the first night at The Bowl. Yes, it was somewhat scripted, he never ventured too far from the script, but, slightly different from the other nights. "Oh, I feel a little mojo building up in here! Can you feel the mojo in here?! Can you say yeah?! Yeah?! Yeah?! We're going to play you the first track from the first album we ever did. It's called Rockin' Around With You!" Now you've got me thinking more about the show and just that night in general. Let me get back to you after I've had a chance to collect my thoughts and I'll try and put together a brief recap and some of my favorite memories from that night. While I'm at it, I'll also go through my other pictures and things and see if there is anything else worth posting.
  9. In the past, on other threads, I've shared a few thoughts and memories on the final show, but this time, I just thought I'd share a few pics from that night. Nothing special, just memories from my personal collection. A lot of what I took was from the screen because I was sitting further away than I normally would and my camera/phone camera didn't function properly that night. The weather was pleasant for end of summer evening, hazy blue sky and 80 degrees at around 7pm (I know because for some weird reason I took a screen shot of the local weather that night) There were a couple fires in LA at the time so lots of people were standing around talking about them while waiting for the show to begin. Everyone seemed to be in a great mood and friendly, almost a family like atmosphere. Anyway, here are a few pics I thought came out decent. And finally, I call this one "Ron Found A Quarter." Miss you Tom, and this wonderful band.... 💔
  10. What a stunner!! Love that checkerboard binding. Hope it brings you years of joy, congrats!
  11. Very interesting and in depth article. Thanks for sharing. I am really looking forward to sitting down and diving into the box set in a few weeks. It hit me mid way through the article, when the author keeps coming back to "that September night at the Hollywood Bowl", they meant the show I saw, the final show. I was glad to hear Mike say how happy Tom was that night and how badly he wanted to be there. From my perspective, that night he did seem a bit happier than I had seen him in recent memory, so it's good to know it wasn't me or my mind projecting what I wanted to remember instead of how it actually was. Dang, in 3 days, will it really be 3 years since the last concert?? God, that hurts.
  12. Happy Birthday Benmont!! Wishing you and your family a very happy day! In honor of your birthday, here's a picture the back of your head that I took from the final night of the Hypnotic Eye tour. 🎂
  13. Very well done and incredibly fascinating. I watched it a couple times. Quite interesting to see the evolution of their stage show. Once Tom figured out what he felt was a winning formula when playing to the masses it became easier to predict how the show was going to go in the later part of their career. That's what made those shows in LA and NY in 2013 so special, the middle felt like such a toss up. Regardless, the shows were still so much fun and some of the happiest memories I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Thanks for posting!
  14. Thanks for posting this. I often forget to check the bands Twitter and Instagram pages, so I frequently miss their posts. Can't wait for the release. Happy the ol' Farm is still around 😀
  15. Listened through it a couple times this week. It all feels fresh and exciting to me. Lots of fun stuff. I'll jump on the bandwagon and say Something Ain't Right is a highlight of the show. I hope that some of the stuff on this and up coming episodes sees a proper release one day, but with All The Rest finally having a street date, it feels highly unlikely. No matter what, I'm happy and grateful to even get to hear it at all. Thanks again Dylanfree!! Can't wait to hear more.
