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: “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.

Re: “Soundbites

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

Re: “Soundbites


Filter is technically a two-hit wonder. Take a Picture, with its annoying refrain of "There goes my aeroplane", was actually a bigger hit than Hey Man, Nice Shot.

Re: “Soundbites

Really interesting Stephen, thanks​!​

I think that you would be really interested in some recent research that I have come across about crowds and citizen science.​ ​

It’s called “The Theory of Crowd Capital” and you can download it here if you’re interested:…

Really powerful stuff!

Re: “Soundbites

I heard Doo Rag is reforming for this.

Re: “Soundbites

Primus is one of the most original and talented hard rock bands that exist. Within their sound one can find a great mixture of funk, absurdity and a quirky sense of humour that musically & lyrically remind me a lot of the late & great musical genius Frank Zappa. It's a shame that Mr. Seigel doesn't much care for them; but I guess when a person can settle for the dreck an "artist" like Daniel Johnston performs, the music from Primus must come across as very complicated.

Re: “Soundbites

The 'CSI show with Chris O'Donnell' is actually 'NCIS Los Angeles' and has nothing to do with CSI other than sharing some letters.

Re: “Soundbites

Sounds like a lot of fun, Stephen. Is there a place we can see which musicians are playing at the SXSW Tucson showcase?

Re: “Soundbites

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!

Re: “Soundbites

I *still* want to know what that was. :-) I can't wait for My Jerusalem again tonight. So glad they're coming back to town...

Re: “Soundbites

I've never heard it, Dylan. Based on your comment, I trust it's worth seeking out?

Re: “Soundbites

How can you give the gatefold glory of Stomu Yamashta's Go: Live from Paris such an oblique reference?

Re: “Soundbites

Yes, bad timing to dip out as Grunge was peaking into an inertia for the next decade; And for whatever reason, the band went sideways;


Say hi to Rich, my grand-mom grew dope (good "kindbud" before they called it "kind" bud with Steve-O) at ERL; Thanks
