I can't do festivals anymore for all of those reasons. I haven't been able to do them for years. Too many people, too much chaos. I say I'm never going to do them again and then I'll get sucked into one and it's HORRIBLE. The last was the Mile High Fest it's first year. There weren't enough bathrooms, not enough water, WAY more people than expected and the staff didn't know what wrist band was allowed where so even as artist guest they wouldn't let us "behind the scenes" to see our friends who got us the passes!
Then the second day they wouldn't even let us in VIP. And nobody would tell us the correct place to park. I finally parked between 2 tour buses and yelled to the security guard "WRITE ME A FREAKING TICKET!"
It was like 110 degrees and horrible. I had a total melt down while having lunch with John Mayer hahahahha.
That being said, I got to see Steve Winwood who TOTALLY killed!
And Tom Petty who is never not totally freaking awesome!
Mike Campbell was in rare form. And then Winwood got on stage with the Heartbreakers whis was TOTALLY RAD!
And it was one of the finest sets I'd seen The Black Crowes do in a long time.
And that's when Luther Dickinson had first started playing with them and it was an absolutely joy to see Luther meld with them.
Lately, I've been a total concert loser. I'm normally out at the shows a couple of nights a week. But I've had so much going on and still battling these headaches. So I've been kind of a hermit. But I am totally looking forward to seeing The Crowes this summer
I would have loved to have flown out to a few Conchords gigs, but life happened hahahahahah.
And I think that I will also got see The Dead Weather
