A Fine Time In San Diego

October 21st, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last night I played a new venue in San Diego… the Anthology. What a great place this is… Vanessa went to see Tommy Emmanuel there earlier this year and said, ‘You gotta play this place,’ so there I was. It’s a fabulous playing and listening room… and yes, the food is great too. Here is my set:

    “It’s got cop shocks, cop tyres, cop brakes, cop engine, and the engine was designed pre catalytic converters so it will run ok on regular diesel”

    Safe travels Jorma

    Bummed that Barry isn’t with you, and for the reason he can’t be there. Nevertheless, absolutely stoked to see you tonight at Compound!

    Well, so much for going by memory..I really buggered that one up…..corrected BB quote

    “It’s got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it’s got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It’s a model made before catalytic converters so it’ll run good on regular gas”

    K…..Question….Does the cigarette lighter work??

    FYI…Clip up on YT already of Genesis from last night at Anthology….Sa-wheat version!!!

    Oops…here comes the Boss….back to work

    You are, and have always been “On A Mission From God”. From the first time I saw you, back at the Academy of Music on 14th St. back in ’73, with the late show ending with the sun rising about 5 am. You always were a special spirit. You, your music, your lyrics – you are quite an extraordinary soul – thank you for helping me on my spiritual journey.

    I enjoy your thoughts on life. I just turned 60 and my thoughts often turn in the same direction as yours. Thanks for sharing. I love the new CD, especially your new songs. The lyrics touch my heart and I thank you for that.

    My first “cop” car was a 63 Buick Wildcat. Pulled up to a pump back in the seventies during the gas shortage, asked the attendent for a gallon
    of gas, to which he replied,”is that for here or to go?” I loved those cars!

    Post a pic of the Blues mobile Jorma..lets see.

    Wish I was going to be there for Jack’s award tomorrow I think it is..or tonight. Pass on my thanks to him for being an A No#1 Primo bass man and show man all these years. I would tell him direct if he had a blog of his own, however you seem to be the conduit..he is the man..

    Yes, I would love to see a pic of that Blues mobile as well. The energy you put into your touring schedule is amazing, no, it’s more than amazing……..it’s ??????……..gotta find the word.
    BTW, I saw Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings last night at the Beacon Theater and as part of their second encore they ended the show with “White Rabbit”………. that was a surprise. Enjoy your travels!

    Before I had my stroke – I produced auto shows all around the country – all new cars, every year. Great job got to see and some cases drive some of the most famous cars in the world. That we would bring into the show as attractions. i.e. The original James Bond aston martin db-7, The ghostbuster cadillac, The back to the future delorean etc, etc. But my favorite was the Blues Brothers car because of my love for the blues, belushi and the movie.
