Welcome. We're a decently pleasant bunch, and most of us will never ask you what you're wearing. So steer clear of those chat rooms, make yourself comfortable here, and tell us what you think of Bush!

Yeah, I've been a big fan for a long time. What didn;t you like about his concert? I know a lot of people get turned off by the political banter between songs, but I like that part. I couldn't go the last time he was here, but I heard it was excellent.

Or could it be like the first time I saw Bob Dylan...he just didn't want to be here...actually thought he was in Saskatoon. It was near the end of the tour and it sucked bad, so I never went the next time. Of course the next time was excellent, so I missed a good show.

Well Steve Earle was a disappointment because he was kinda outta tune, and it took about 3/4 of the show before he was really warmed up. Yeah, he was into the political stuff when we saw him, but then a lot of entertainers have made it their mission to slag Bush. It was acoustical and his guitar string broke - I think - so he did 'Copperhead Road' on the mandoline (i think!). Why would you do something like that to begin with? Anyways, it was bloody awful.

BUT.....before he came out they had Harry Manx - who plays lap slide guitar, mohan veena, banjo, tamboura, etc. His music is definetly worth a listen. Try to see if you can't snag a copy of 'West eats Meet'. Good stuff, and his vocalist that night was Emily Braden who was awesome. Everyone around us wished we had a couple of hours of Harry and then just called it a day!

Oh, Haggis. You're going to scare our newbies away. At least let them get comfortable here before you start to stalk them....

Hey I'm not stalking her, I just want her to get nekkid. Or at least tell me what she is wearing. The stalking comes later, once I find out her home address and telephone number.

Yes, well, same difference really. You are going to scare away our new blood. It's really unacceptable. Try to control yourself!

Hang on... okay, I've installed an anti-stalker device onto my brain hard drive. We're okay now. I. Am. Controlled. 8-|

Rats.

System failure.

Earle has been into the political stuff since the beginning, he's a folk singer, his first big break was at Farm Aid. That's one of things I like about him. He's been playing 'Copperhead Road' on the mandoline since about a year after the album first came out. It's kind of a rebellion against that being his biggest song and being expected to play it no matter what the venue.

As for the tuning thing...well I wasn't there, so I can't say, but he does tend towards the Keith Richards' tuning method...kind of theoretical. Maybe it was just a little more theoretical that night than usual.

If you want to hear him live at his best, try the documentary DVD/CD. Oh, and buy his latest CD 'The Revolution Starts Now'...it has a love song to Condoleeza Rice on it.

The reason it was not good rev, was because of where it was held. The ascoustics are terrible there, always have been, no matter who plays there. That is why Idid not go with galaniomama and her spouse like unit to see the Earle when he was here. I would not even go see rusty if he played there. Don't worry tho rev, galaniomama's husband is just about as crazy about steve earle as yourself...we always know what to buy him for christmas.
