We show a little respect in the City of Brotherly Love, Anthony! Stay cool, man. Put a sock on it. The All-Star Jam is the place to do your thing.

    Hey, Chet Flippo died the other day. I really liked the stuff he wrote about The Stones. He wrote about them like they were just people, which they are.

    Looks to me like those Philadelphia guys mistook Anthony for Jackie Robinson.

  3. Any of you Philly folks go to the Stones last night? I may attend on Monday in DC at Verizon Center, but only if my pal scores me F-R-E-E tix, It’s still not sold out.

    Went to see Dwight Yoakam at the 9:30 last night. Had not stepped foot in the place for at least five years. I got a little choked up. I’ll be back soon — Dwight killed and the 9:30 folks do a great job. Dwight recalled that he played the 9:30 when it was the address of the club — ahhh memories. I don’t miss the bathrooms or the rats at the old one.

    9:30 now has a kick ass restaurant that is open before the show, and Mrs. funoka and I had a brew next to Dwight’s soft-spoken keyboard player/dobro/back up singer in the still cool basement bar that has vintage 9:30 fliers framed on the wall. If you drive — parking is easy — now at the back of the club, but pre-paid parking is probably the way to go. Still one of the best clubs in the U.S. in my book. Right up there with First Avenue in Mpls.

    I hope we are all very much aware of the impending Big Star rocku: http://www.magpictures.com/bigstar/

  5. This looks like it will be good, at least until the final third, when the grand tribute show comes together and that stinking M. Ward and Evan Dando – and probably even Don Was, Van Dyke Parks, May Pang, and Thurston Moore – hitch on with the Posies, the REM guys, Robyn Hitchcock to take up the tale and Serious Musicians with ponytails and unbleached 100% cotton clothing begin tuning up their cellos for the grand tribute performance of the band’s beloved catalog.

    Hey! I spent an afternoon with May Pang once. She seemed very nice.

    Whoa. I had no idea. Kewl.

    Big Star question- I’ve never heard or tried Third. From what I’ve read it is one of the followig; an imploding-masterpiece, an unfinished-masterpiece rivaling SMILE or cold diarrhea on a paper plate.

    I guess it’s a masterpiece of cold diarrhea. It sounds like everything falling apart, and it’s kind of depressing, which kind of sucks, because the first two Big Star albums aren’t depressing at all. It’s interesting, though. But I hardly ever play it.

    My two cents. There’s no comparison between Third and the first 2 albums. It sounds like a completely different band. If this wasn’t a Big Star album I probably wouldn’t own it. That being said, it is a must have for any serious music collection. While most of the up tempo songs don’t get off the ground (exception being Jesus Christ, For You) the best stuff the sombre, dour, haunting shell of Chilton on songs like Holocaust, BigBlack Car, Nighttime). It took me a long time and several listens to “get it”. Like 2000Man I don’t listen to it often but I can’t deny it either.

  10. Hard to believe, Sammy, considering all the time you spent in my wallowing, bummed out company way back when. It’s not an everyday album, but it’s really good for drawing the shades and sinking into the ashes. It’s Chilton’s second Syd Barrett album.
