    Don’t worry it’s only a west coast sushi alert. Fukashima is giving a whole new meaning to Hot Tuna.

    I think I remember that show as well, maybe a little pedal steel? and no drummer? Anyway, a friend made me an offer I can’t refuse, so I’m in for shows 3 and 4. Looking forward to whatever else is revealed. Another thought from last night, first time I had heard “In My Dreams” live, absolutely loved it. Hoping for some more great “Audibles”

    I was at a long weekend of 6 shows Hot Tuna at McCabes in I think it was 1991 or so. I have homemade tapes of every show as evidence. Michael Falzarano and Pete Sears were members at the time.
    Just sayin’.
    Thank you for the program share, Jorma.
    One is too many, too much is never enough.
    You’re a huge inspiration.

    Jorma, I’m wouldn’t eat any sushi on your West coast swing. I just read they’re not testing the seafood for radiation. You could glow green tonite.

    I’m at a loss for words on how good last night’s show was. I think it was the magic of McCabes. The thing I like about Mccabes, they make you shut your cell phone off.. nobody is worried about posting a picture on FB, or chatting with their buddy over the music. Like Lincoln said at least the NSA will not know where we are for an hour and a half. It was just pure magic from beginning to end. I think and I hope that Jack enjoyed himself so much he will come back next year! Only wish I had bought tickets for Sunday as well.
