Never going to happen

They have chosen to leave sleeping dogs lie.

Neil can do whatever he wants and it will be huge.

Stills and Furay are washed up and might as well check into the old folks home.
Those two cause a lot of trouble and why would Neil want to deal with their insecurities. It could be a perfect world and Stills would bitch and cause some kind of conflict. Mr Stills is well known for being one of the biggest jerks in the business.

I think MOCA should try to get a blue grass band to do a concert like Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs.I know they are dead but there is other blue grass tallent and Arlo Guthree lives just down the road. Maybe he could get something going.

there's something happening here...
what it is ain't exactly clear...

those days are gone. sure, the man with the gun is still there, but we as a people just don't care. we're wrapped up with dancing with stars, and the latest electric cars.
the boomers they once were a force, but anymore, they are only a farce.
when they passed those thirty long years, they gave up, eaten up by all of their fears.

so now the man is always in charge... and we all are toting his barge... we'll pull it to the end of the earth... till we regret the day of our birth.

yeah, let's go back when life was sweet.

Jethro, MoCA should have a whole bluegrass or Celtic Festival. I just went to Flurry Festival in Saratoga. There were well over 5000 people there for the weekend and it was great.

Well, hopefully if they have another successful festival with Wilco this year, they'll add more and branch out as far as styles.

that wilco thing may be a good idea. just have to wonder if the area will be able to adjust, provide all the ancillary support, be welcoming and feed the thing in order to capitalize on a festival.

it'd help if NIMBYs stay in their backyard.
