From Grass Valley to Grants Pass

From Grass Valley to Grants Pass

On the way up to Grants Pass we passed the Oroville Dam… I can see why the evacuated the town. Uneventful for us though… and then we were at the Rogue Theater.

The good old Rogue...

    damn!….32 song set in Spokane….AND the return of “Wolves n’ Lambs”
    Jorma, your ‘79 solo record has some of the best songs you ever wrote.
    “Roads n Roads”…”Valley of Tears”…”Song for the high mountain”
    is there ANY chance you and Jackson could bring “Da-Ga Da-Ga” back into the rotation?

    Never heard Wolves & Lambs live.
    As if I need an excuse to go to more shows

    Wolves & Lambs? Wow. Hope you keep that in the setlist for a while Jorma! I heard that at the Paradise in Boston once in ‘79 and never since…love that record…here’s to hearing more of it again.

    “When you’re lying awake
    Feel you’re body shake
    C’mon girl
    don’t let your spirit(?) break
    When the life your in
    Is more than you can take
    Got to once more look away
    If living for today
    Don’t satisfy your sensual(?) pleasures
    Once more look away
    And follow with your heart
    As the waves come crashing…miles apart”

    Not sure I’ve got all the lyrics right, but it doesn’t stop me from singing that great, great song.

    Wolves and Lambs….can Hamar Promenade be far behind?!

    Hey Jorma,

    Like everyone else said, “WOW”…haven’t heard Wolves and Lambs since the old ovation days…brings back some old memories. Hope you plan on breaking that out when you hit the East Coast in April.
    Great picture by the way…:-)
    Hope to be seeing you guys soon.
    Safe Travels

    So excited for the start of FPR 2017 but too excited to wait…so I’m coming to Charleston to see you and the Tedeschi Trucks Band tonight!!! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…I hope Police Dog Blues makes a comeback…I’m really glad to see that you’re revisiting some of your older material, hopefully I’ll hear some tonight ;)

    Hopefully we’ll bump into each other, but otherwise, I’ll talk to you in March…stay well, and keep on truckin!

    A lifetime doing what you love. What better way to spend one? The fountain of youth wells up from within, no? Hope we all still jumpin’ (at least metaphorically) when we’re 90! Yours and Jack’s friendship/careers are most inspiring.

    @carey georgas
    Great comment. You are absolutely right about Jack and Jorma. From someone who’s been following them since 1973 – your words are spot on. They are more than friends – they are a cosmic force in the universe. So glad I’m in their orbit.
    See you in Brooklyn.
    Short story, when I was a little boy my parents took me to Christmas parties in Prospect Hall. My grandparents lived in Brooklyn. Great little hall – you guys are going to rock the chandeliers and blow the roof off the joint. Can’t wait!

    OK a show of hands. How many people going to the Prospect Hall show in Brooklyn and also St. George Theater show the next night in Staten Island. LOL Also come on people plenty of seats left at the St. George. Lets buy them up and show the boys how much we love them. Also good children’s charity cause at the Prospect Hall show. And no I don’t work for the band..

    Just read in the Houston Chronicle that Willie is playing the livestock and rodeo this year. He’s also releasing a new album the day before his 84th birthday, April 29. Another attestation to the power of doing what you love.

    Just got my prospect hall tic, but all I have is a pay pal receipt. Drive eighty miles and “Beg, steal or borrow”, I guess to get in. Oh… I will be at At. George, but I prefer to buy at the door.
