Re: “Sound Bites

I'd just like to add one event coming up this Sunday, Sept 29. Tribute to Michael Begala at Valley of the Moon, form 1 to 8, featuring 4 bands he played with here in Tucson: Linda Lou and the Desert Drifters, Wayback Machine, and Top Dead Center, plus members of West River Band. Bring a cooler and chair, or you'll be able to get refreshments there.

Re: “Nine Questions

Figurative gun to your head, what is your favorite album of all time?

Boom. I'm dead. Couldn't decide before they pulled the trigger.


Damn, Dan, you are merciless...

Re: “Soundbites

I knew Michael off and on for many years, and saw him play in various different bands over those years and was always amazed by his guitar playing. He put something into it that few are able to do. He was also such a gentle and kind man. I remember talking to him at a show at the Rialto not too long ago, and he told me he remembered the guitar and the amp I was playing at a gig I had done and that he had attended many years before (at the Route 66 Bar, of all places). He had that much attention to detail, and he was one of the most generous and nicest people I've ever know. He will be missed by so many in the Tucson music community, for he was genuine, a true gentleman and a very special spirit.
R.I.P Michael, we loved you, man.
R. Walker

Re: “Blues Explosion!

Always did like that band. Love the raw sound and the randomness some songs have.

Re: “Soundbites

Randy was right when he said... some people could play Jerry's notes... Mike could play his MUSIC. RIP

Re: “Love Their Way

Saw Richard and Tim in Charlotte at The Chop Shop on July 31st and was blown away by Richard's presence on stage and how tight the entire band sounds. I don't think many who have heard the Furs recently would dispute that they sound better today than ever before. And Richard's smile and pure joy is nothing short of infectious. One regret is that we didn't bring our 11 and 14-year-old children - this set would be a fantastic experience to share forward with the next generation. Hope they keep touring and that we'll have the chance to see them in North Carolina once again. Favorites from the 90+ minute set: Heaven; Love My Way; Heartbreak Beat; The Ghost In You.

Re: “Nine Questions

Chicago Store was the only instrument store in Tucson that actually supported local musicians back in '96. They sponsored the local television show with in-kind donation of rental gear, "Let's Get Into Trouble, Baby". Wasn't Rainbow, wasn't Beavers, wasn't Guitars, Etc. nor any of the others that were approached. Chicago Store really came through.
