  1. The day Jerry passed I was fishing on a party boat in San Diego. At one point, I went into the galley to get a drink and noticed they were playing Dead tunes on the local classic rock station. About an hour later, I went back inside and they were playing another Dead tune, and it was a song they never played on the radio. I briefly thought, I wonder why they're playing Terrapin Station? Did Jerry die or something? We got back to the dock and hopped in my buddies van for the ride back home to L.A. As soon as he turned the radio on we heard the sad news. Needless to say it was a very quiet ride home as myself and my buddy had close to 200 shows each under our belts. We were both shocked but neither of us were surprised. His health had been in decline and it was obvious he had gotten back on heavy drugs after about 4 years of being semi-clean. The quality of the shows had declined as well. To the point that I didn't travel long distances any more to see them play. All I could think of on that ride home was that I essentially watched that man die on stage.

  2. Black Uhuru-Solidarity, Frankie Paul-Pass the Tu Shung Peng, Half Pint - Crazy Girl, Peter Tosh - Stepping Razor, Little John - Pregnant She Pregnant, Sugar Minott - Herbsman Hustling, Tenor Saw - Ring the Alarm, Freddie MacGregor - Bobby Babylon, Cocoa Tea - Lost My Sonia, Pinchers - Bandalero, Michigan & Smiley - One Love Jamdown, Wailing Souls - Have Mercy......

  3. Exile on Main Street - Rolling Stones

  4. 10/16/21 whole show but if you have to choose a specific jam check out the Carini, it’s in my top 3 ever witnessed in my career and I’ve seen some good ones.

  5. ^This is the way. Just add some Dennis Brown to the list. Reggae has a deep, rich Jamaican heritage that informs the current scene.

  6. How dare I forget to add the Prince.. Good catch

  7. Indeed... I would think that while risking his life thousands of miles from home, he'd have the sense to apply sunscreen. Stage was facing the sun and dude got cooked...Show was fire though.

  8. Some punk rock songs had a message. Some were just dumb fun. You telling me “Who Killed Bambi?”, “Suzy Is a Headbanger”, or “My Girlfriend’s Dead” had a message? No more than any of the other trap songs listed here.

  9. Blah blah blah blah blah blah Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

  10. I will be downvoted for sure...but he really just doesn't do it for me.

  11. I'm with you. Was at Dodger Stadium. All I can say was it was very OK. Mayer was good, but the term that kept popping into my head was, "lacking" . Mayer is an amazing guitar player but not an amazing improviser. His riffs are very repetitive and to my ears, his improvising during the jams is just, lacking..

  12. Not enough west side geezers chiming in around here....

  13. Rasta straight riding that punanny riddim like that train ride di tracks! Fiyaaaaa! 🔥🔥🔥

  14. Its a draw between 3-22-93 and 11/2/98
