Judy Wong RIP

The show was fun, but Eat Skull got chewed out for going about 40 minutes late. It's not really realistic to expect a show to start at eight and be over by ten, so I hope that doesn't mean there can't be shows at Delta anymore. The Singles played right on time and they were great. The Ganglians seem to have learned to set up faster on tour and they played a pretty long set to an appreciative crowd.
Doesn't Ryan look like Mick Fleetwood. I'm reading his autobiography right now. Did you know that Christine McVie's god-given real name was Christine Perfect? Also, the Mac had a good friend named Judy Wong who was from Sacramento. She seemed to be a real scenester who knew everybody and lived with Patty Boyd, the woman who was married to George Harrison, and didn't he like steal her from Clapton or something. I was convinced maybe I could find her in Sac but I guess she died. Here's some pictures on Bob Welch's website.
Here's the Singles
And some pictures of the underappreciated rhythm section

Tomorrow is the Sammies. Who's going?

Actually, Clapton stole Patty from George and they were still friends afterwards. I don't even know why the hell I know that.

On my "Book a Day" desk calendar, today's book is "Hotel California: The True-Life Adventures of Crosby, Stills, Nash, Young, Mitchell, Taylor, Browne, Ronstadt, Geffen, the Eagles, and Their Many Friends."

I'd read it, but the fact that he failed to list Linda Perhacs among those 40 other names makes me think this might not be a very conclusive look at the scene no one will ever shut up about.

Were they even trying to be over by ten? The time between bands was pretty long. And the guy did ask them to stop, and either they didn't hear or just ignored it. Which made me feel stressed to no end. And a little sorry for the DOV dude.

and elderly, but I am going with it. Part of the selling point of the show was the claim it would be over by 10. Again elderly. Screw it, old is the new old.

The Ganglians were great though!

stop the presses-someone left george motherfucking harrison for eric clapton?!?! patty boyd's sister jenny boyd was married to mick fleetwood but fucked another guy in the band and they all stayed friends.

yup. and then they all got together and recorded the weirdest, most abysmal version of 'Bye Bye Love' ever. If i remember right it's on Extra Texture, George's weakest solo LP.

I'm mad for the Kirwan Mac songs. They're pretty much the only ones I like on the early records.

yeah, he mentions kirwan but so many of their early members went crazy that i get them all mixed up. there's a gnarly picture in the book of peter green all crazied out with super long fingernails.

there's a story in the book about how henley had been macking on nicks over the phone but they hadn't met yet, and the eagles and the mac were playing together at a stadium in san diego (omf's dream bill), and nicks got a bouquet of roses delivered to her dressing room that said, "stevie-the best of my love....tonight? love, don" and she got all pissed thinking that don henley thought he had her in the bag but turns out it was a prank and mick fleetwood sent it!
