"A few songs later, Abts was hammering a wicked drum line to a Warren Haynes solo when Angie White Rikard, a fan from Charlotte, declared Abts “the best rock ‘n' roll drummer still alive.”

Hey Stoner, "give me Neil Peart for 200 Alex."

He couldn't hold Neil Peart's jockstrap.

Do us all a favor and don't comment on music when you obviously know nothing about actually playing any of it.

Go figure the first comment would be about someone in the audience rather than the music.

Stay home next time you idiot. We can all argue who the best drummer is, for my take on that it's Ginger Baker (you probably don't even know who he is).
Incredible night of music (as usual)and a great introduction here in Asheville to Tal Wilkenfeld, this young lady has talent.

Thanks to Warren for providing and incredible night of music and for helping Habitat for Humantity continue to provide housing here in WNC.
You ARE the best!

I wish they would release set lists before the shows to make sure you are able to see what you came for.Us old folks have a hard time doing the nine hour entire thing but if we knew about when the artist we want'd to see were playing we could adjust.

After all of these years, The Christmas Jam just gets sweeter. Last night was an incredible show. Every year I discover new artist through The Christmas Jam and revist with familiar favorites.From the begining of the night around 7:00 with Government Mule 'till the conclusion of "One Way Out" by The Brothers near 4;30; it was a constant showcase of talent."old Teacher was right about Tal Wilkenfeld, her enthusiasm in each set was something to both see and hear.One of the most incredible fusions of the night,had to be the high energy jam between The Del McCury Band and The Lee Boys.Their excitement was contagious.
If tonight is anything like last night, every reader should do every thing possible to attend the show tonight. Be there at 6:00 in order to find a seat if you do not want to stand all night.Dress comfotably and in layers. Warren Haynes is one of the finest guitar players around but more importantly,he is a reminder to all of us about the importance of being kind and the value of friendship. Go and enjoy the show! You will not be sorry and it benefits a great cause.

Ginger Baker, can't argue with that, at least you brought someone qualified to the table. I like him also, just not as technically proficient as Peart.

The Prince of Darkness, Ozzie, was tops in Saturday's performance. Can't believe he bit that poor bat's head off.

Thank you Warren Haynes for such an incredible two nights! My friends and I appreciate all the hard work you and your wife put into this event! The musician line-up was more than words can express! It was so emotional with the Johnny Winter standing ovation! Joan Osborne and Ruthie Foster were great! We have always been fans of The Del McCury Band and now love Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphank! They ROCKED! Hate we missed The Derek Trucks Band but maybe next time! Asheville is such a beautiful place to visit and the work you do with Habitat for Humanity is truly Blessed! Merry Christmas! A fan.
