|2006 for me:
Woke up … got out of bed…..dragged a comb across my head…
Best DVDs: Mike Stern, Dream Theater. CCEB even though it came out in 2005 this is a best of for two years so far.
CDs: Landau Live, Scott Kinsey, Oz Noy Live.
Shows: Robben Ford at the Coach House I also saw Buckethead there this year. I love this theater, very organized, fantastic sound, San Juan Capistrano is absolutely beautiful, thoroughly enjoyed visiting there.
Steely Dan/Michael McDonald, Michael Landau 3 shows, Jeff Beck, Zappa Plays Zappa, Pat Metheny, Vegoose festival. I will think of more later I’m sure.
Played lots of music, my band is going strong and we are playing better then ever, Friday night jam tonight I can’t wait. No new car for me I am still driving my 1997 mini van that I bought new and paid off in 1999, it fits my 2 X 12 cabinet perfectly, along with a PA and all the trimmings, great sound system too. No new animals just the same 2 dogs and one cat.
My favorite disk of the year is a recording I got from someone across the world from a show that was right next door. Robben Ford / Michael Landau / toss Panos / Jeff Babko and Travis Carlton on Bass at the Safari club in LA. They did a few shows there the playing is as free as it gets. RF and ML are major influences on my playing and listening, to hear them stretch out like this is the ultimate for me.
