moe. Paid Tribute To Butch Trucks With An Awesome “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed” Encore At The Georgia Theatre [Recap / Setlist]

first_imgJam stalwarts moe. continued their winter tour last night with a tight two-set performance at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, GA. The band filled the show with older, fan favorite material, awesome and poignant covers, ambitious improvisation and slick transitions.Set one opened with an energetic take on “Sensory Deprivation Bank”. “All Roads Lead to Home” followed, before a fun version of “Queen of Everything” was trotted out. “Don’t Wanna Be” came next, before an awesome “Opium” into “New York City” segment that was the highlight of the first set. A big “McBain” brought the first set to a close.Set two started off with the familiar falsetto of “Blue Jeans Pizza”. A heartfelt “The Happiest Days Of Our Lives” was up next, and that started off an awesome three-song segment that featured Pink Floyd‘s ever-poignant “Another Brick in the Wall”, and a raucous “Lazarus”. The band then kicked into high-gear with a seamless, four-song set-closing run through “Hi and Lo”, “Don’t Fuck With Flo”, “Ricky Marten”, and “Meat”.For the encore, the band stepped on the stage and busted out an improv-heavy cover of the Allman Brothers‘ classic “In Memory Of Elizabeth Reed”. It was a touching tribute to the recently deceased Butch Trucks, who sadly passed away earlier this week. They turned in an emotional version of “Liz Reed” in honor of their fallen compadre, as they toured with the Allman’s back in the 2000s.See below for a full setlist from last night’s moe. show at the Georgia Theatre.

Don Felder Announces New Solo LP Featuring Bob Weir, Chad Smith, Slash, & More; Shares First Single [Listen]

first_imgFormer Eagles guitarist Don Felder has announced the forthcoming release of his first solo album since 2012’s Road To Forever. His star-studded album, titled American Rock ‘N’ Roll, is scheduled to arrive on April 5th via BMG. The 11-song album will have a much more of an expansive sound than his last effort, which heard the rock musician playing all of the guitar parts on his own. Felder has recruited the help of a few well-known musicians to play on the album this time around, including Bob Weir, Slash, Sammy Hagar, Joe Satriani, Chad Smith, and Mick Fleetwood.Felder shared the album’s title track to go with his announcement on Thursday. “American Rock N’ Roll” sticks pretty close to the traditional classic rock sound, acting as a tip of the ‘ol cap to some of America’s rock heroes ranging from Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin to Duane Allman and Guns N’ Roses, all of whom are mentioned in the song’s lyrics. The song’s recording process actually featured two different drummers, with Mick Fleetwood coming in first and Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Chad Smith taking over in the latter half. Fans can listen to the audio-only video for “American Rock ‘n’ Roll” below to see if they can hear when Fleetwood’s playing ends and Smith’s begins. Listeners should be warned, though, that an impressive guitar solo courtesy of Slash also comes in just after the song’s halfway mark.Don Felder – “American Rock ‘N’ Roll” – Official Audio[Video: Don Felder]“I wanted to bring in as many people as possible to share the experience with me,” Felder explained in a statement about his desire to work with as many of his musician friends on this album as possible on the new record. “I knew it should be bright, cheery and fun or it wouldn’t be worth doing. It should be a labor of love, not a labor of work.”Related: Sammy Hagar Taps Bob Weir, Dave Grohl, & More For “Acoustic-4-A-Cure” Benefit ConcertFelder kicked off his 2019 concert campaign earlier this month with a show at the Thunder Valley Casino Resort in Lincoln, California on January 18th.
