Tribute to Col. Bruce Hampton A Special Inside Out with Turner and Seth Podcast
Atlanta, GA -- The Podcast "Inside Out w/ Turner and Seth" offers Col. Bruce Hampton Tribute which features interviews from his final performance. This is not an episode. This is a tribute to the man who breathed Zambi life into this program and into just about every conscious person in the organic music world, Col. Bruce Hampton. Hosts Rob Turner and Seth Weiner were the only journalists set up backstage at the Hampton 70! Tribute at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre May 1, 2017. In cosmic keeping with the truly singular history of The Colonel, the event remains one of the most powerfully joyous musical evenings in Atlanta entertainment history, despite the fact that it ended with the death of the man being celebrated. A tragedy to all in attendance except perhaps the man who began his journey to the beyond in arguably his own ideal fashion, on stage with his favorite musicians, shining a light on an outstanding young player and goofing on just about everyone in attendance while the band played on. In this episode the hosts share some of their own thoughts, and then portions of some of the many interviews they conducted at The Fox that day. Here, The Colonel’s friends Jeff Sipe, John Bell, Jon Fishman and Rev. Jeff Mosier talk about all things Colonel. These musicians who knew him well explain many examples of why Col. Bruce Hampton was widely considered not just a shaman, but a particularly shaman-tastic one, even when he was having tea with other shamans.
This program believes that whether you are a musician or a fan who was at The Fox Theatre on that night, the best way tohonor The Colonel is to remember the event and his death not with sadness, but with laughter. It was frightening and confusing that night. But as time passes, it should be increasingly revealed that it was even more of a delightfully twisted final exclamation point on a joyfully “outside” life that touched an absolutely stunning array of people. As Jeff Mosier says, “choose gratitude.”
Amazon Announces the cast for their Upcoming Grateful Dead T.V. Show.
This was my April Fool's Joke!
Amazon just released the cast members that will play the Grateful Dead band members in their upcoming show about the band's life. I am not an acting coach but I must admit there are more than a few head scratchers. Before we announce the cast, one odd moment actually delayed the production team from casting the respective roles of the show. When executive producer and GD member Bobby Weir insisted on playing Jerry Garcia. The uncomfortable week of dealing with this unrealistic request came to an end when Bill Walton pointed out to Bobby that he has in fact been playing that role already since Jerry untimely death in 1995. One thing Bob was adamant about was picking the actor to play him. He insisted on 80's child star Corey Feldman, Bobby was quoted of saying "Just watch "Dream a Little Dream" 1 threw 6 if you think he does not have the chee…
Some As#hole Screamed "Free Bird" at a Recent Bob Dylan Show. The only actual news is Bob obliged and played a note-perfect rendition of the dueling guitar solo in Lynyrd Skynyrd's Rock Anthem. Watch!
Bob Dylan has never met a cover he did not like. He has incorporated countless tunes by many artists in his live shows since the early sixties. Ironically, the Never Ending Tour is supporting Dylan's latest release Fallen Angels which is his second installment of Frank Sinatra classics. I have had the pleasure of seeing Dylan live well over a hundred shows and witnessed him cover everybody from The Grateful Dead to Warren Zevon and all genres in-between. But I never thought I would hear the Great One cover " Free Bird". Of course, some asshole yelled to hear it or be funny. Hell, maybe he was trying to impress a date and had a low I.Q. Whatever the reason he yelled it, is less fascinating than why Dylan played it. I think he finally got sick of hearing song…
