When the next O/L tour happens.....

What one (if you could only pick one, but it's so hard to do) song do ya wanna hear them do that they didn't do on the '05 tour?

To see with my own two eyes and hear with my own two ears, Gary's guitar playing of the song "Let The Critics Wonder".

that "rolling the strings" sound he projects in that song.....we crank it up on the Bunkhouse L.P. when it comes on, just to hear that roll, and I imagine what it must look like in my head to watch how he plays that......I can just picture it, and hear the crowd going totally nuts as he wails that one out.

So, that old 80's demo they did, "Roadside Mama". Same thing, that one gets cranked by us as well, just for getting to hear that "stunning string roll". Now that's really going back in the vaults.....perhaps that song's roll is even more stunning because it's a lot faster than Let The Critics Wonder.

It's not just me. Both the Mr. and I....when we hear either of these songs we just kinda look at each other and go "how the heck does he do THAT?!"


Scott has been playing guitar since '79 (and is very good) and yet he still cannot get the strings to move quite like that.....but Gary makes it sound like it'd be easy.

Thankfully, with the Jayhawks we get spared the cheese flavourings.

Ha! Haggy is full of wit tonight....that's a good one mate!

BTW, We MISSED you and the Mrs. sorely last night at the party at Sandy's house

Chiefcrowe brought his guitar, and Angelyne and I (mostly, but the others did some too) sang Jayhawks songs w/him while he played. It was a lot of fun.

Mmmmmmmm.......Lou Malnati's Chi-town pizza......mmmmmmm

what a beautiful home our webmaster has.....music memorabilia and art everywhere, and and we toured the famous office where this here fanpage was created

Dammit! This week just got away from the Mrs and I in the end. As it turned out, Wednesday my work told me I would be on extended hours from Thurs through to April 5 so there was no way I could have made it in the end. Totally fed up at missing it though. Especially as that is now twice I have missed Ravi I think.

Yes...Haggy! I missed seeing you. Ravi did too... We had a wonderful evening like Kim said. It would have been even greater if you had been there though. Great seeing everyone again by the way....

Kim's right, twas mainly she and Angela singing. All for the best though as I can't carry a tune at all! Ravi played his guitar great too! A fun night for sure..

Ditto Joyce. I can't even carry one in a bag.

Sorry to have missed you last night - I am sure there will be plenty other opportunities though.
