Anything Ralph was involved in was interesting, fun and lively. I was a big fan of The Cottontails:

A real character. Lots of sad folks walking around the Mission these last few days. It's just horrible.

Re: 1985 , King Of America sleevenote

So sad to hear this news. When I heard he was leaving SF for Portland a few years ago, I was sad. No more Ralph in SF - smiling and playing his horns. This is just all around horrible. RIP, Ralph. Bummed out today.

Re: Elvis playing Vegas, Feb/March 2018 -'only shows of 2018' !?!

Vegas - ugh. not my scene at all. I've always hated Vegas and the only reason why I've ever gone was for a work conference/trade show.... Oh, and the Brooklyn Bowl show... which was great, but I was so ready to leave the next day, I had an extra pep in my step just to get the "bleep" out o...

Re: ATUB Font on cover

Wow, dedicated to EC and his music. Just curious - where will this tat reside on your body? How many tats do you have right now and does a font type really matter? Good luck finding the font. Your tat artist should knows the font. If he doesn't find a new tat dude.

Re: Elvis & The Imposters play 'Beaver Creek Hike to the Mic', Avon, CO, 16 Sept. 2017

Yep. I know where it is. Would like to see a "hike to mic" fest in California with EC/Imps on bill. I'm not into flying to see a show unless someone else is picking up the bill and it doesn't impact my work week schedule. Plus, flying really bites these days.

Re: Elvis hints at new release: Lupe-O-Tone's vinyl singles

That's a spotify database issue most likely. They want to join the two tracks together but have no other way to assign it or call anything else other than an album, so the tracks are together. Not knowing anything about nothing is my expertise, call it American laziness at it's best? Hell, yes!

Re: My Aim Is True: 40th anniversary

This was a great show. I had tickets for the first show and after it, I got right back in line for the 2nd show it was that good. Worth a listen.

Re: Elvis hints at new release: Lupe-O-Tone's vinyl singles

It would appear from emails that my copy has been despatched and delivery will be between 2 and 6 weeks. I assume this is because the cost has ensured that the disc won't be warped since it will be taken by husky sledge over the Arctic and then down through the Artic and North Sea by trained porpoi...

Re: Elvis hints at new release: Lupe-O-Tone's vinyl singles

Hi Fi Entertainment, the distributor, is jacked. Try checking out Wise Ghost from their storefront. The shipping costs are nutty. Is someone smoking meth over there or what? I feel bad the promotion didn't go down as planned. That's lame and I would be totally pissed. It's angered some fans and they...

I don't think it's age. Raising young boys + constant touring... That's exhausting. Maybe a bit more focus on himself - exercise/rest/diet might help? Don't we all need to focus on these things as we get older? Everyone knows loosing some poundage increases your energy level, right? I read it onlin...

Mervis pulling a bit of jerk move as a so called music critic. I wanted to get a look at him, and in my search found no photos, but did see that he plans to respond and that he in fact was invited back stage by the promoter to meet EC & Imps. He did in fact meet Elvis that very night before the ...

Nice review. Thanks for wanting to see this show again and again while I am 1000+ miles away from the next group of shows. Hope this show circles back to the west coast again. Yeah, what is up with the mix? Every spot has its own nuances for sound, I guess, but isn't the sound / mix sorted out at so...

Yeah. The setlists keep on changing (a bit) and getting better as the tour continues. No fair. It seems like the Berkeley show was a warm up.

Ok, maybe someone on the IB tour didn't scope out the proper fan and screen displays... Such as this:

Nonetheless, Summer still rolls on... Elvis rules! This show is right up there with the wheel tour. Let loose and have fun.

This tour isn't backed by a label, is it? I enjoyed all the low budge qualities of the show. Especially the Target/CostCo fans blowing the mist around the stage. Love it! I'm all about campy/tongue-in-cheek presentations. What a gas!!! (My key lime pie breaks helped enhance the NorCal show. No doubt...

Funny, I was thinking the same way about the show in which he describes it in this interview... a sense of humor to it w/ a twist of mischief. EC & the Imposters crack me up. Elvis with his red and white hats (good vs evil)... There was a classic slide on the screen with Elvis as a angel (white)...
