Ugh. I am.

Mark - It's about a 2 hr show, live in front of a small audience, and the artist, JM in this case, just takes call in requests. This show was done in Indiana, his home state. I didn't catch the whole thing, but people just call in and most had a little story about one of his songs and then he justs plays away. Then they take another call. There's a host who kinda directs the flow, but it's almost pure live requests. Obviously, most people want to hear his old stuff, but he played some more recent tunes. Man, that guy was on in the 80's and 90's - had his finger on the pulse of American folk music. He did one of my favorites, Jackie Brown. Awesome song.

They've had a bunch of others that I musta missed - Tony Bennett, Earth, Wind & Fire, Willie Nelson, Elvis Costello, Don Henley, Vince Gill, Reba McEntire, Neil Diamond, BB King, John Fogerty, Lyle Lovett. I think it's being rebroadcast (yes - http://www.aetv.com/global/listings/series_showcase.jsp?EGrpType=Series&Id=11996509&NetwCode=AEN) tomorrow morning at 11.

This guy never stops being great! Joe Satriani.
We met him a couple of weeks ago in a local music store for a mingle and signing session!
We went to this show at the House of Blues Chicago that same night and it was the best!
Keep in mind, pic phone. Whoops, I don't think taking pics is allowed at the show! :D

We saw RUSH in August, 30th anniversary tour, they left nothing on the table. They gave us 3 hours, 2 90 minute sets. :worthy:

If you are a RUSH fan, this is the tour to see.

I saw them in June. Another great show. How did you like their tribute to the bands they grew up listening to? Summertime Blues and Crossroads absolutely ROCKED! :headbang:

That's a band that I never did see that I really wish I had.

Too old now...

I had never seen them till last year, but they do a great show. I would like to have seen them way back, but they play the old stuff as well as I could have wanted them to back then and they have more material to play now, anyway.

I have seen Rush many times and they are always very professional! They never rip off their fans!! But the list of bands above that were on A&E are all pros.

JimN

Yeah, nothing like seeing a band that just seems to be going through the motions, eh? The bands listed care enough to not put on bad shows. Too bad there are bands that think the universe revolves around them so they may put on a bad show or tour, but they don't care at all.

I could think of a few that I'd love to see do that kind of format, and first on the list is probably Paul Simon, but after that, Steve Winwood, Sting, Dylan, Bonnie Raitt, ...

I saw Rush when I was in high school, and felt ripped off. Probably among the worst shows I've seen. And this is when I was really into them. It was very mechanical. Probably just a bad night or whatever, but that's the way it went and I haven't felt any desire to listen to them since then.

I thought it was excellent, especially since I grew up listening to those tunes too. Their show in Rio is on DVD, available at their website. I don't have it yet but I have heard it is outstanding.

When they did the intro to Summertime Blues, I was amazed because it was the Who/Blue Cheer version. I thought I was the only one who likes that version.

Now I could kick myself for not giong to see Rush this summer. I was busy that weekend and figured they would probably be "over the hill" by now. Best concerts ever, RUSH is right at the top of the list. Their Presto tour back in ? '89-90 was awesome, as was Roll the Bones a couple years later.

Those two shows were excellent. Although I enjoyed it I think that the Counterparts show was the weakest. R 30 without question was the strongest.

Get "Rush in Rio", that should help.

Yeah, I saw 'Knoxes' and thought, wow I haven't seen that guy on here in ages. I remember he and MarkP got into a classic war of words in 2004.

I didn't know they issued social security numbers to annoying women in Texas.

Well that's not entirely true. We use "Social" and "numbers". The physical is the numbers and the emotional represents the social....

I don't remember my join date, nor do I have any polaroids or anything like that but I remember knoxes and fitzgerald slightly not agreeing with my politics or economics ;)

You are right.
I started a thread about him a couple of weeks ago.
Search and check it out Some interesting replies. I picked up some other great guitarist from it.
