I thought my kids were a whiney pair, but I see a pttern here, year after year:

1. If the run is not at the Beacon, but at venue xxx, I am not going because...
2. The ticket prices are too high, so I am not going (not new to this year either)...
3. Get ready for the perennial: I did not get the Peach-O-Gram, and I have been registered since 1904, ...
4. The pre-sale sucked, all I got were upper balcony, so I am not going

5. Followed by: I thought the pre-sale seats sucked, but the general public sale was worse, so I'm not going.

6. Ticketmaster cancelled my order, so I am not going.
7. The crowd is obnoxious, so I am not going.
8. The band has no new material, so I am not going.
9. The guests take away from the show (remember the complaints about Hubert Sumlin??) or so and so- has no business being on-stage with the ABB so I am not going.
10. And my absolute favorite: (deleted) because it will start another 10 page rant

Funny stuff....

Here are the ones that stick out in my mind as appearing every year :

"I stand up to dance and people yell at me to sit down" / " I like to sit and there were dancers in front of me !"

" When will we get a new album ?!! " / " The show sucked. Eygpt > Instrumental illness >drums >Eygpt to close with Taj Mahal sittng in for the first set ?? I paid $ 100.00 !! No Melissa or Whippin Post !! Gregg owes me my money back !! "

" Bring back Betts !! I don't care that I've been here every year since 2001 and the band has taken on a great new sound and direction .....bring him back !! "

" There were drunk people all around me on a Friday night Allman brothers show !! - Who would of guessed ?? !!"

"Security threw me out for blatantly breaking the law by smoking weed out of my indiscrete foot long glass pipe !!"

" NYPD busted me for smoking a doob on some upper west side apartment's front steps. The nerve !! I'm a professional and live in the suburbs !! "

Looking forward to the shows !! The rest is just talk . The excitement is great wether you agree or disagree with all the ranting and raving !

Hahahahaha!

I have no excuses for not going altogether, but my days of '4 shows in a row' are certainly gone - that is, if I want to make my 5/1 ARM payments on time....

Another poor excuse- Derek is bringing both Clapton and Santana on the 20th.

I remember that show in Atlanta when a lady kept bellowing "Blue Sky" at the top of her lungs over and over and over. I kept thinking, lease shut the hell up, they are not going to play it"


Then they did a Blue Sky tease and she went nuts . Blew my mind.

I only have 2 reasons for not going.

1- Lack of funds
2- Lack of sanity.
