What a shame the band members all went their seperate ways.
In answer to marcialobell's question, the show is Friday, May 28, at the Triple Nickel. Full details are in the box to the right of the story, up near the top.
love this! WHEN is he coming to CO?
Thank you for this website. I'm from out of town and appreciate the access to information to go jam!
I just picked up the new album today. It is such a refreshing mix of styles and each song has its own uniqueness. I usually buy a cd because I like a couple of songs on it, but this new cd has me loving every song on it. It is also affordable.
I bought my son his first guitar there Ed was very knowledgable and when it's time to move up we'll be back to deal with Ed. Thanks Jim Hazard
Thank you for the great article about Los Lonely Boys. Be sure to attend their upcoming acoustic set. I went to six of their acoustic performances last November on the East Coast and loved every second of it. I can never have enough of their music. It would be great to have a review of the concert from you.
All the Best,
I totally aggree with BNB, The whole article was off.
Before you write an article and publish it, you should know your history of the subject and make sure that the contents of the story are correct.
What a spectacular show! House rockin' roadhouse blues in it's truest form!
When I heard they listenend to Merle and Willie I got pretty excited, then I listened to their cuts...bummer, sounds like another cookie cutter band turned out by the Nashville Country Music Machine that dictates what is on the radio. That's too bad. For some real country visit wayne the train hancock, the Hacienda Brothers, oh yeah and don't forget Deke Dickerson and the Echo Fonics. Don't be a slave to pop radio! Some great tunes out there, give em' a listen.
Lurrie Bell verison of Elmore James "I Believe" is really Good!
There has not been a band of musicians in Colorado Springs since Auto-No. There have been bands of hacks and egos with instruments, or a skinny punk or two thinking he plays Hendrix but doesn't even play Stevie who couldn't play Hendrix. There has been some talent and some gracious artists but Chuck and The No could play it real five nights a week, week after week. Alas, the Springs has always been kind of "Dumbtown" in a musical sense which explains the constant "No music scene" complaint I have heard since the late 1970's. You want a "scene"? Then pony up the dough for the good pickers and then shut the f*** up. Chuck played one of the best renditions of "Voodoo Chile" I have heard and I saw Hendrix play it too! Local DJ lady played Hendrix' version on radio once and announced it as "Voodoo Chili" from "Electric LandLady". Yeah, dumbtown alright... quick: what are the opening words to Positively Fourth Street? If you don't know then Dumbtown needs a mayor and a village idiot... Rock on Chuck, I'll stomp a mudhole in anybody's ass who says you ain't shit. That would make us both Happy Boys!
I was stationed at Fort Carson, after returning from Vietnam via Walter Reed. It was July 68. We hung out in the park, where we sold pot, hash and acid. At night it was Kelker Junction and it seems like Alice Cooper was there, not sure. Then at Reed's Ranch I saw Quick Silver Messenger Service with the Steve Miller Band along with the best light show I had ever seen on the best acid I'd ever done ,Owsley" Purple Double Dots". At the City Auditorium I saw either the Vanilla Fudge or the Cream doing "Season of the Witch" on great hash which seemed very plentiful at that time.
It's just the title of the article. It's not comparing the band to The Beat Farmers.
Tales Of The New West? Country Dick has to be rolling over in his grave.
A dam good show at the Gothic it was. Was wonderin if you have the song list they played? or if anybody else knows it.
They are really amazing...
But once the Indy writes about the new basement venue, it will get shut down. Happened before.
I am looking for Royal James Bennett who use to live in St. Petersburg Florida. Steve Cook 7274580555
