Re: “Robert Cray & Hi Rhythm at Loflin Yard

Pretty pathetic that you failed to mention that the incomparable Steve Jordan(Booker T and the MGs, John Mayer Trio, Hail Hail Rock n Roll, Keith Richards Expensive Winos et al)plays drums on the album

Re: “Big River Block Party

Folk Alliance was a cancer, and the local music scene has done nothing but expand and thrive since their extremely fortunate departure.

Have we forgotten the time when black progressive artist Knowledge Nick attempted to synergize with South Main Trolley Night, and was raided by cops where non-violent and non-resisting positive artists were MACED?

Folk Alliance and their regressive ideas on how music should be performed and produced had an profoundly NEGATIVE effect on the local scene, where the word "jazz" was spoken in hushed tones like it was some sort of dirty secret that traditional american music does not have it's history in any white tradition at all.

The vast majority of artists in this city are rappers.

Full stop.

If rappers are not welcome at your event, you don't represent Memphis.

Full stop.

FAI is a cancer. Apparently Memphis needs some chemo to keep it from coming back.

Re: “Concert Review: Buckethead at the New Daisy

Not for nuthin', but the "red button(s)" on his LPs are "kill" switches. The Atari style buttons turn off (kill) the sound. B also uses (quite often) a "pitch shift" pedal, which literally raises whatever note an octave (or more or less depending on how you set it). So when the writer said, "The red button is something like a Wah-Wah pedal for the face of his guitar...", what he was hearing was the kill switch in conjunction with the pitch shift pedal...far from a 'wah for the face of the guitar'. Understandable if you're not a guitar player...

Re: “Support Local Music

I'm in one of those guitar center butt-rock bands, and I still appreciate you actually taking the time to talk to me and write about the show. You didn't have to do that, and yet you did. Best of luck on your new endeavours! Memphis is going to miss having guys like you that actually care about the local scene!

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

Thought of Jerry tonight and looked this up again to see if the pos that did this was ever caught. I can't seem to find anything about an arrest. I hope they find whoever did this.

Re: “River Records' Jerry Gibson Killed in Store

We were at River Records just in July. When my husband and i started dating back in 1998 he took me to see Jerry Gibson and River Records. Well, needless to say we made it a event about twice a year. Truly a wonderful person and We loved Jerry. Got a picture with all visits. He will be missed. He had hoped to move to Ark. and retire. I ask Jerry was he scared here and of course Jerry said No. And a lot i cant repeat. LOL... Rest in Vinyl Heaven.
