Should be a real good time! I'm glad to hear Warren is playing with them.

He;s been ripping it up too! without putting too much of his own flavor in it. I like him a lot, but with phil and friends, his sound was getting a little heavy for me. steve kimock would be my dream fill-in on that spot with jimmy herring #2.

When I worked in KC at Avis, one of the bus drivers I worked with there was a Weir and was Bobs first cousin. He told me once he had a Gibson SG autographed by the whole band, including Jerry. Wouldn't mind having that thing!!

In my opinion this was the best post-jerry group of the boys i've seen since the 1998 other ones with kimock and mark karan sharinglead guitar with bruce hornsby on keys.

jeff chimenty (of ratdog notably) blends together with the rest of the core four pefectly, and although sceptical of warrens overpowering ability, he played really well. he did many jerry-like solos and vocals, when appropriate, say on like Standing on the Moon vocals or Touch of Greys upbeat solo.But he also got down and dirty-south style on vocals such as Mr. Charlie.

All in all it was great! The light show was spectacular, the setlists (available on jambase and dead.net) were stellar! and there were many show highlights! The first night a large group of wisconsin kids i'm friends with had a box-suite reserved so i got VIP that night, and the second night a buddy and i found a great spot by the wheelchair section to dance.

the cops were actually really chill, and let people camp overnight in the parking lot both nights, but i had a room right next to the venue at the wyndam. i helped my friend sell beer and cleared about $300 a piece selling beer in the lot those two nights and i was able to pick up some cool souveniers for me and my family.

Phil, bobby, micky and billy far exceeded my expectations and i'd highly reccomend catching them this fall or summer if they roll somewhere close by. hell, i'd even reccomend driving cross-country for it.

i'm glad to be back though. had the boat out running well today and i have four different rod and reel selections all ready to go for a little midnight bridge action up my way...peace!

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.
