Quincy Jones. Ace producer.
not their first all ages show in Tucson. Their first show, on the tour when they were 18 and just out of High School, was an all ages show. At the glorious Grumpus Room that none of you ever went to
yay Andy knows how to share his opinion to the world! You go Andy!
I hope one day music historians will write and focus more on this man's musical genius, songs and records, and of course guitar playing and make only a mere mention of his mental illness and troubles. Most "sane" musicians never have the career or fan base this man has and will continue to foster-which garners admirers from around the globe, and have included members of The Beatles among other well known and talented peers. His prolific and creative output has been incredible when considering his toils. Long before I was in the band or even thought more than a few moments about that town called Tucson, I heard "Lambent Flame" being cranked in a a record store in NYC. I too was stopped in my tracks, and became an instant fan. Then, twelve years later, I was in the band, and it was one of the best times in my life, performing at SXSW with the Black Sun and Jesus. He had a huge and good heart, and I can honestly say that I had a shamanic experience playing next to Jesus at the now just a memory 7 Black Cats. I had one beer in gut, not enough to rip the cosmos, no it was Prince Master Blaster's playing that caused that rip in space and time for me. He was a fucking incredible musician, more honest and true musically then anyone I've ever known. Thank you Prince, you are now an Angel of Light. JPM
No more folk - smart move IMHO. Winston is a genius too. Good luck!

Jesus called my old man on Saturday, saying he was suffering from a "panic attack". Hearing that he passed the day after is heartbreaking. Condolences to all who loved Jesus. Tucson has lost more than its share of local music legends.
As a post script, Carly Rae has been invited instead to perform for the Canadian Scouts - who, like most other civilized nations, do not discriminate:
I am grateful to Carly Rae, Train, and others for standing up to discrimination. It is through such actions that change happens. I hope and expect that BSA will make the right decision in May and end the ban. If not they risk continuing their trajectory towards becoming the Boy Scouts of Conservative Christians rather than the Boy Scouts of America, of all America.
Once the ban is lifted it will be a total non-issue and the fears of the right-wing will not materialize at all, just as happened with the military.
The first time I ever heard Black Sun Ensemble's music was just over 20 years ago and it stopped me in my tracks. The unique and bizarre mixture of Middle Eastern and hard rock influences were impossible for me to ignore. I was ten times as surprised to find out music this phenomenal was the product of a home town visionary. Local genius!
My condolences not only go out to his friends & family but also to the local music scene for losing a true original. A spirit like his will not die, it will simply transcend from the material world. I can picture a super group in the great beyond that includes him jammin' along with Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Cliff Burton, Bon Scott, John Bonham and/or Keith Moon.
R.I.P Jesus. . .
Fall Out Boy really do suck, you know.
I will miss, Jodie Cosmo, Loki Wolfey, Funny Bunny, The Seven Headed Dragon of ?, Apollo the Destroyer, and the rest... Maybe not The Shiek so much. More than anything I will miss Jesus. He used to talk about wanting to see heaven.

Can you guys re-format the Bandwagon section so it's easier to read? Either chronological or at least performers on the left and venue on the right? it's one of the most useful sections of the whole website IMO, deserves better presentation Thank you!
I love recording shows here. Great sound.
