Re: “Jimi Jamison 1951-2014

I finally found the courage to read all about Jimi now that time has passed since that most horrible of days that he left us. This is the most beautiful article I've read about Jimi. When you talk about how he sounds on "The Search Is Over", I understand it so well, only I could never express it as eloquently as you have. Jimi had the most beautiful, strong, emotional, unique voice I've ever heard and I'll miss it always and forever. Rest in Peace, Jimi, hope you're watching over us.

Re: “A New Booker in Town

How do you know anon and "others" were unaware of Loeb's actions before this? So in lieu of commiserating or supporting like minds, you dump om them. I'm afraid there's no free parking for people with your disability

Re: “A New Booker in Town

anon - you and others have watched Loeb flagrantly ignore Federal law protecting those with disabilities, use public tax money to provide their for-profit business with parking, and saddle their tenants with unnecessary expenses to earn their marked up management fees. And somehow you are now shocked they don't have YOUR best interests at heart. As Gomer Pyle said, "Surprise, surprise, surprise!!!!!

Re: “A New Booker in Town

Memphis had a thriving house party scene, but a dying bar scene. Then came MMF, who saw many musicians playing house parties, touring the country, making decent money, thriving. MMF decides to do some "research" and brings a bunch of musicians together to take a survey about gigs and money. All of a sudden cops start cracking down on house parties. All of a sudden house parties no longer exist. All of a sudden music venues all over town are getting shut down. All of Loeb's competition, somehow, behind the scenes, becomes suppressed. And into this vacuum created by the police and by government regulation, steps Loeb. Loeb, as you may recall, is a business owned by the family of the mayor under who's watch MLK was murdered. And now this same family owns a monopoly on night life in Memphis. Loeb owns Highland Strip. Loeb owns Overton Square. All the places the local musicians told them to buy in the MMF survey, Loeb bought. Then what did Loeb do? Refuse to book local. Only book out of town acts with no draw. Book coverband garbage. And the local musicians got screwed out of their house parties, screwed out of their dive bars, and screwed out of what little money they were scraping together. Stop Loeb. RIP MLK.

Re: “A New Booker in Town

Here’s hoping that he’s successful at broadening the mix of performers to appeal to a wider audience. And to appeal to folks truly interested in hearing good live music, not just in drinking and socializing with a live band as merely a backdrop. Much needed at Lafayette’s, in my opinion. (Special request: Please bring back Castro Coleman, aka Mr. Sipp, the Mississippi Blues Child!)

Re: “Wreckless Eric at the Galloway House

Whole Wide World is brilliant, and Wereckless Eric was onto the WWW 15 years before it was invented. But the ultimate punk song was 'Keys to your Heart' by the 101ers.
