I always wear mask at any indoor establishment. I give the dirty eye to any who aren't.

Yesterday, we hiked at a trail on VA that was not very crowded. Like maybe we encountered 15 people in 4+ hours, none of whom we came closer than six feet to.

Then we went to Powers Farm Brewery. Outdoor table service. Picnic tables set apart very well. Most people not wearing masks. We put ours on when the masked server came to our table. Altogether, pretty comfortable.

THen we went to an outdoor ice cream place. Takeaway service only. Markings on ground where to stand, so parties 6 feet away from each other> Most people weren't masked. Wife and I were, daughter wasn't.

We drove through downtown Warrenton. Outdoor tables were too close together, and very few people walking around with masks. We had no plans to stop anyway, but probably too crowded and germy for our comfort.

Not sure why i typed all that. No grocery store music. Our first day out in VA since 2019. Was fairly comfortable.

I was thinking about Eric Crapton this morning...god since about 1971 he has sucked and yet people worship him
BTW read his autobiography....you will loathe him after doing so...a horrible person
well your in good company...Phoebe Bridgers says Eric Clapton makes ďextremely mediocre musicĒ

Yes... some artists music has aged very poorly... Crapton is one...

I think Phoebe is wrong to call him a racist

Frankly she sounds kind of like an idiot

Crapton was in pretty rough shape in the 70s and drunkenly made some racist comments which he has apologized for dozens of times

Elvis Costello has done something similar

This whole cancel culture is idiotic

A smarter person could have said something about all the work he has done with Crossroads...how he has disowned those statements about Enoch Powell...how he has come a long way

But Crapton is an easy target..just read his autobiography...itís all there.....like I said his music has aged so poorly itís hard to envision anyone under 40 being into him...

I donít like his music and he seems like a pretty fucked up guy but I wouldnít take a shot at him publicly if I were a musician


Kind of reminds me of Craptonís friend Phil... why does everyone feel like taking a shot at him?

It might just be generation vs generation thing


Glad to see the twins giving Phil some love

Well can't argue there...she does go a little overboard and the music press loves click bait

Hey her Boygenius bandmate Lucy Dacus did a cover of In the Air tonight on her covers ep
but PC doesn't seem to get the respect he deserves
The only reference he gets is from that scene in American Psycho

I didn't get your Twins ref, meant to ask
no didn't see that

Oh that reaction video thing...I hate that stuff
I guess that is good for Phil's bottom line and legacy

I will say, I really don't love any Genesis stuff before and after
never did it for me
I do love Illegal Alien, but that's about it

This line is funny
in 2009, journalist Mark Lawson told how Collins's media profile had shifted from "pop's Mr. Nice guy, patron saint of ordinary blokes", to someone accused of "blandness, tax exile and ending a marriage by sending a fax".


Phil phatigue has really set in.

Phil fatigue did set in but nevertheless it remains a fact that he might be the best triple threat - singer, songwriter and instrumentalist-of the past 50 years.


I donít think people realize what a body of work the guy put together 1970ish-1990

One may hate the gated snare drum sound he pioneered but it is arguably the sound of the 1980s

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=N6L_BG0Qhg0

His session work is everywhere...he has a whole box set focused on it ďPlays well with othersĒ...production work...You name it...you may not dig him but everyone you do dig wanted him on drums

Getting back on topic, at Trader Joe's Glover Park:
Spandau Ballet  "True"

I appreciate this song a lot more now than I did when it came out.
TJ's was rockin' the '80s, I also heard
The Smiths "How Soon is Now"

I just bought a German LP pressing of the True album...German presses are best


The other song on it that is pure gold is Gold!


Tony Hadley really had some great pipes


Itís such a great 80s tune...

Never a huge Spandau fan...the guitarist who wrote all the songs wa touring with Nick Masonís Saucerful of Secrets so Sidehatch and I saw him


Thatís all I got Twangirl!

I'm currently getting drunk in New Hampshire but just wanted to stop by to say agree with Twangurl about the SB song but wondering what Hutch must be smoking with his Phil post.
