Re: 26Live & New Single!

What a lineup and set list! Fall 2019 in SoCal was gold.

Tweedy

I have spent about 15 years boasting of Jay Bennett and Jay Farrar’s immense talent.

There is no compromise. Now all the names are called. Packed house full of believers. Like a six string belief. Guitar revival Amen! Rural route sleeps while LA bleeds all over itself

Mark Patterson is an amazingly solid drummer. A joy to rock with I bet. Chris Frame is a veteran of SV and man is he amazing. His tone from a slew of what seems to me like Fender Telecasters is every bit mix of Brad Rice, Boquist, Walbourne, David Gilmour and every perfect Mick Taylor lick you can t...

Neal Casal

I’d expect love on this board for the man that colored Ryan Adams greatest work.

So sweet a vocalist and guitarist-RIP

I adore the nasty guitar licks on live version of "Union".
It’s like a new song.
