I am very happy to see that people are sustaining the memory of Rainer. Back in the 80's I clandestinely recorded sets he played at Tony's Steak House. I loved his music. Then one evening Rainer was doing a solo set at The Temple of Music & Art. I worked up enough courage to ask him (this time openly) to record his music. He said sure. A couple of songs into the set you can hear Rainer say, "Hey I want to hear that tape at the break." He did and he liked the simple recording I had made, saying that it reminded him of the way early blues artists recordings sounded ... simple. My girlfriend at the time heard the tape and w/out seeing Rainer play bought every CD of his music available at the time. I guess she liked his music too.
Just superb. Any music lover in Tucson should have this in their collection, and what a great support vehicle. Take the time to lend an ear and give a hand.
Thank You Mr. Ptacek
Thanx Linda and Tom what a great job you have done.
Yep, 40 people (maybe ) show up and it's an event. Nope....sorry just more half ass Tucson "musicians" who will go nowhere next year and the year after that.
Lived with Dick and his friend in their condo back in 87 or 88. My brother introduced me to them. My brother also painted two murals on the walls of the FineLine at its old location. It was a fun place back then.
Happy Holidays from myself, James Williams, who can attest to Mr. Tatum and his music. From Dec if 69 to Jan of 74 I was stationed at Davis-Monthan AFB and had the privledge of listening to andfor a short while singing with his banb The Haze Express. Every week they played at the NCO club. In 1972 4 airmen and myself formed a vocal group called Brother Love and for at least a year we performed with them at the club and on some of their Chitling Circuit Tours. It was great back then.
Congratulations! love you!
Congratulations! xo love you! -Ash
dope!! thanks for posting a killer event. The producers scene here in Tucson great!
Justin always puts on a great show. I can't wait to see this version of Los Guapos.
Here is our Bandcamp link, thank you! :)
Oops! Sorry for the error, I removed that for you. Justin, is there a video or a song on Bandcamp you'd like us to include?
Great write up!
*That video above is not this Los Guapos though*
Es ist denkbar, mit einem langen Leben weitermachen, und subjektives Wohlbefinden große den letzten Jahren mit der Länge des Wohlbefindens Kompass im Grunde das gleiche wie die Länge des Lebens schätzen.
Awesome article... I met Dale working for the Toro's for a couple of summers in the 80's, he has a terrific sense of humor, gentle way and you described him to a tee. It is nice to see great people like Dale get recognized. I have sent this article to some of my friends who knew Dale but have left town, they will get a big kick out of this.
"A few weeks back, some genius in Tucson Unified School District thought it would be a good idea to shift Dale out of Roskruge and over to another school. Before the day was over, word got out and the calls poured in. The order was quickly rescinded"
The word came down after Dale had voiced his support for a volunteer that received a complaint from a parent and was restricted from volunteering at the school. By coincidence the powers that be decided to send word that Dale was being relocated. This was no doubt a way to send a message that the power of those at the Morrow building was absolute. Things did not go as planned..........
Thanks Heather. Love your gushing!!
Sorry Kerry, I wasn't there. This is what I was told by a friend of mine who was there (or at least that's how I interpreted it). I'm sure that being a guitarist for Slayer and all got you the VIP treatment while you were there, so you would know better than I. Rarely have I attended a concert that occurs out of Arizona because I am not a thrash legend such as yourself. Speaking of which, how are those riffs which you have recycled endlessly since Reign in Blood working for ya? I imagine you still have the mansions and auto collection because of them, so more power to you.
Tad did not reform for the anniversary. The brothers played a short set of Tad songs with Kurt Danielson on guitar.
