Saturday Matinee – Going Fishing, Rock & Bluegrass, The Flying Burrito Brothers & 1929 Elders

by

This is kinda cool [found here].

1971 – When Rock & Roll Met Bluegrass. It’s part of an Earl Scruggs tribute video. Click on the link to the Utoobage to see the awesome lineuup of players. “Easy Chair” is sappy as hell, and it’s one of my all-time favorite songs.

1969’s Altamont Speedway Concert was to be California’s answer to 1967’s Woodstock, but turned to disaster once the concert promoters thought it was a good idea to hire the Hell’s Angels as security. (It was as stupid as if the promoters of Burning Man had hired M-13 and the Zetas to keep the peace out in the middle of the desert).

Now THAT is important. 90 year old voices from 90 years ago. Just think of what they witnessed in their lifetimes, and think of what your grandchildren will witness in theirs.

Have a great weekend, folks, and it’s not too late to plan for a crockpot full of Bunk’s Chili for your Sunday StuporBlow Party.
