Hey, Dr. Michael Osterholm mentioned and read the lyrics to When I'm Weary at the end of his recent podcast as a "pep talk" to cheer up listeners. Seems many folks requested it for his "Closing thoughts" section.

Those who arrived today are getting a full refund however, so a free vacation. Not a bad situation if you ask me.

I guess. I wouldn’t call it free though considering guests paid their own airfare, which is a significant chunk of the cost. Free stay at the resort itself though. For those who went just to party, I guess that’s alright, but if this was DMB, and this happened to me, I would still consider this a loss and a huge bummer. That being said, 3 days at a Mexican all-inclusive is low on my list of vacation preferences.

Its not exactly the same situation though. First Billy Kreutzmann dropped out for medical reasons last week, then John Mayer had a positive COVID test on like wednesday and they had replacements lined up for both. They are also in Mexico and they have offered a free mexico trip to everyone in this first set of shows if they want to still go to the Half Moon Resort. Thats a pretty nice offer if you ask me, all inclusive Mexico vacation for free? I dont know if DMB refunding me the ticket prices at the gorge would have been nearly the same thing. It seems to me like Omicron overwhelmed the DeadCo crew and there was just way too many people with positive cases, not just carter and stefan (and i assume a few other crew guys too).

Oh yeah, totally different scenario for sure. The free resort costs is about as good an offer as they can give. Definitely commend them on that. For me personally though, if I was one of the people already at the resort and found out this news, I think it would still ruin the vacation. The shows would be the entire point of going for me. I would see it as going to a really good tailgate for 3 days without the actual shows at night.

It just hit me. DMB really went from Everyday to Stand Up, obviously with two brief detours to rerecord most of the LWS and work on the 2004 songs and the SD songs they ultimately rejected. What a fall off a cliff. I mean, compare most of the songs from Lws, Some Devil and 2004 with Everyday and Stand Up (not counting the mangled 2004 songs released).

Oh yeah, and Loving Wings came out in 2002.

Actually it was one of the guys on the dead co message boards. He never met anyone in the band and has no pre existing chemistry with any of them but he has a really cool silver sky guitar just like John. Someone mentioned he was learning guitar to Bobby about 6 years ago when he was at an airport in Chile so they called him.

It was actually Tom Hamilton from JRAD

Dave's 55 today. Wow. I remember watching his Today Show performance back in 2004 where they presented him with a cake. Good versions of Some Devil and Stay or Leave.

55 and singing Can't Stop vs. Sugar Will. Party Band vs. musical integrity.

How good does that guitar sound on stay or leave? I know we’ve all discussed it but those rockbridge guitars are so dull sounding.

And its intonation is good on the raised B tuning. The Rockbridge's intonation is off badly - anything Dave plays up the neck on the Rockbridge raised B guitar sounds off. I know there's craftsmanship involved with those instruments, but it's objectively clear that the Taylors sounded better in pretty much every setting. I own seven boutique guitars and I've yet to hear anything remotely like any of Dave's Rockbridge's. They simply don't sound good.

Is he tone deaf? Or is it simple solidarity with a friend? He's gotta know they sound bad. Or at least different? Maybe nobody has the balls to tell him?

Dave Matthews and Brian Calhoun are simply great friends.
And for him it is probably one guitar like the others
