Apr. 4, 2010 - HOLYYYYYY MACKERAL, ANDYYY!

Leon Russell / New Riders Of The Purple Sage (5/14)
A MUSIC HALL/MUSIC WITHOUT BORDERS CO-PRESENTATION
The ultimate rock & roll session man, Leon Russell's long and storied career includes collaborations with a virtual who's who of music icons spanning from Jerry Lee Lewis to Phil Spector to the Rolling Stones. A similar eclecticism and scope also surfaced in his solo work, which couched his charmingly gravelly voice in a rustic yet rich swamp pop fusion of country, blues, and gospel. His classic "A Song for You" is a mainstay on rock radio.
For most of the early '70s, the New Riders of the Purple Sage were the most successful offshoot of The Grateful Dead. They've attracted a considerable audience through their association with Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, and Mickey Hart and have been on constant tours of the world for the last 40 years.


WHOAAAA!!! WHAT A SHOW THIS WILL BE!!!   LEON RUSSELL  AND BUDDY CAGE AND DAVID NELSON?!!!  MY TOP 3  OUTTA  5  HEROES, ON THEIR RESPECTIVE INSTRUMENTS!  ALL ON THE SAME STAGE!!! ALL 3  ABSOLUTE VIRTUOSOS!!!  I GOTTA SEE IF I CAN GET TO THIS ONE!!!!

Mar. 26, 2010 - bad news

Found out today that Dennis Hopper (73) has advanced prostate cancer and has lost 100 lps. he got a star on the walk of fame today. doesnt sound to good for him and I want to post what a fan I always have been of his, especially in Easy Rider. He had the coolest harley in the movie, and the best actor imho. I hope he lives as pain free as possible, and lives as long as he wants to. Me and my bro had this poster in our bedroom when we was kids...

Hang in there, HOPPER!

Mar. 16, 2010 - New Riders - Rock and Roll Hall of Fame- why the Hall not?

 

 

----- Forwarded Message ----
From: Michelle McFee
Sent: Fri, March 12, 2010 11:27:36 PM
Subject: New Riders - Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

While electronic petitions have been circulating for some time requesting the correction of this egregious error (in my humble opinion, of course), the only way for requests of this sort to be taken seriously is to write a hand written letter and mail it to the induction committee at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Here is the information:
 
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation
1290 Avenue of the Americas
New York, NY 10104
 
I was going to include a pro-forma letter that you all could edit to make it your own, but decided that the committee may smell a rat here, so we should keep this on an individual basis. Feel free to share all information with your friends, as well.
 
Let's get Marmaduke in where he belongs!!!
 
Gee, maybe if all goes well, there could be a fun trip to Cleveland in our future.
 
All the best,
 
http://www.nelsonband.com

Michelle McFee
 
Thanks Michelle! Thanks Buddy Cage! Thanks Bob Miley!
 Everyone out there still own a pen, an envelope, a piece of paper, and a stamp?
 
Let's do it for the New Riders of the Purple Sage!

Rick, it was truly a pleasure meeting you and Dennis. While our time in San Diego was full of fun and many new experiences of SoCal life, our time spent with you guys The Baker Bros, was surely a highlight of the trip. So glad we had the opportunity to meet and I look forward to the next time here in PA. Also thank you so much for the gifts, especially the NRPS Home, Home on the Road hood ornament you made for me, I will treasure it forever. All my best to you and Dennis. Have a great time up north next week!

-Bob

Finally got to meet our good buddy Bob Miley and his bro Mike this weekend! they came into san diego to see the Eagles play the chargers on Sunday. the chargers squeaked out the win, but it couldve gone either way with the eagles right on their ass! it was a good entertaining game all the way up to the last two minutes.On sat afternoon the 4 of us(2 miley bros/2 baker bros. went to the old town section of SD, had mexican food and cervasas.lots of interesting conversations about football, baseball, and of course, the New Riders! learned some stuff about PA. and told them stuff about SD. Oh what a mighty time we had!  even got the 2 mexican guitar players to do an  awesome rendition of La Bamba (nrps's  "oh what a mighty time" has la bamba on it) but you know that..didnt get to spend as much time with the guys as we would of liked, but was happy to get to finally meet em.  the Miley bros are GREAT GUYS, we talked as tho we had known them for years(this was our 1st in person meeting. we have known Bob by email, my space, facebook, and our blogs for several years, now. were hopin we can get to Pa one of these days, and return the favor of the dinner and beers!  thanks, Bob!  we'll catch the bill next time!

Hey BC  was reading that post where you said you were watching Easy Rider for the millionth time?  at the end of that flick, right before the bikers get killed, there is a scene where they are riding around Louisiana after the Mardi Gras, and Dylans "its all right ma" is playing. in the background you see oil drilling platforms, (on land) and cranes, etc everywhere.  in 1979, me and my bro and our wives had moved down there to the thibideaux/Morgan city area of LA. that was 10 years after the movie was made.  anyway  we both were sandblaster/spray painters in those very shipyards for about 4 years(for me)  he stayed about 8 years. we went over that bridge every day for years.  everyone called that bridge "amelia mountain" (amelia, LA)because it was the highest point for many many miles.(ive been told) anyway  I always liked that movie anyway, and when I saw the background scenes, it was very cool to watch it again and again. the only BAD PART of this story is,  Louisiana was
a hell hole as far as Im concerned, because it is SO OPPRESSIVELY HOT, I mustve aged 14 years in those 4. being from CA, i didnt know how to handle that heat 70 hrs a week we were working, God!  im glad thats over, but I still pull out my easy rider dvd and watch it alot.
              thanks for listening to my "long story LONG".  lookin forward to seein u guys in Petaluma!  -Rick

Sep. 15, 2009 - This is where i got the H HotR sculpture Idea from John Dawson a few years back...

See, John wrote "does anyone know where the actual sculpture, of which this is a photo, is?" That got me thinking if he did not have the original, that he might like a "COPY" (as good as I could make, that is) I'm not a copper smith, but I can do wood pretty good. John got the 1st one I made, then other band members, then widows of band members soon followed, then friends and other fans etc etc...thats the story...
