I was fortunate enough to see 6 shows,great seats all nights, and every show was awesome, though some were better than others. Best guests imo Buddy Guy, Clapton, and those 2 white guitarists brought out together... not johnny winter... one of em kinda looked like jerry the other played the slide unbelievably... And oh yeah, Taj... and page mcconnell.

Trey i thought was ok in some places and embarassing in others... warren had to cut him off at one point, and he rarely cuts anyone off... I think it was during dreams or it might have been liz reed....?

Some people complain, say the band is "warren and friends now"... but i think it's cool they love to mix it up with so many diff people (kid rock, not looking in your direction pal). They pay homage to their roots, acknowledge others who are doing their thing and franklly, if they are going to play 13 nights they gotta come up with different stuff to do to keep folks entertained...

~~~~~~~

Now on to Kid Rock... The problem with him is that he is oppositite of what is so admirable about warren, derek and the bros....style over substance... arrogance instead of humility... flash over creativity... self-promoter vs of one of team.

I like many, was a little puzzled that he'd be invited. i figured they must have been out of guests, (i'm sure susan was available)... but then i read here that he's got some association w/ mule and dickey or whatever so i guess it makes sense.

The problem is the Bros don't function that way. Seeing kid rock up there with them just didn't work for me. I kind of feel bad for him. To me, he has no talent and and he is just such a wannabe...

But alas, no big deal, i took a piss, got a drink, found some friends... The beacon rules, can't wait till next year.

I find it funny that the two guests least liked by the fans (Sheryl Crowe and Kid Rock) had a really good hit together a few years ago. I think it was called Picture? It might have even been a cover but it was very good and at the time it was really different for the both of them.

I don't recall Warren cutting off Trey. They've got the utmost respect for each other...I doubt he'd do that.

How about Boz Skaggs? He killed ! Loan me a dime was sooooo good. His voice is still there. The Juke horns sounded great . It was really authentic sounding to me . In my HUMBLE opinion. Also it was a gas to see and hear Thom Doucette .

I think the two white guys you are referring to are "Steady Rollin'" Bob Margolin and Sonny Landreth.

I liked Kid Rock on the Marshal Tucker song i thought he sounded great and added a lot to the song. Soulshine...not totally sold.

i do agree that his attempt to "fire up the crowd" was a bit odd but that is his style so you can't fault him for that. Kid Rock is a huge fan of the southern rock genre and a big proponent of it. he is constantly trying to get rock n' roll into his music and spread the word on some great musicians that his fan base may not already know about. again i found it a bit odd but i thought he did a great job (aside from the "let's get rowdy" comment or what ever he said).

My .02 here. Why not?
I also attended 6 shows and have caught most of the others on Moogis.
My favorite night was 3/26, the night without guests. I really liked some of the guests and really disliked others. My favorites were TAJ MAHAL, CHUCK LEAVELL, KINGPINS, Clapton (both nights were great for different reasons. Night 2 was a much looser more relaxed performance), Jimmy Herring, Billy Gibbons, The Jukes, Cowboy, The Bramlett ladies, Bob Margolin was great.

I can't believe there hasn't been more discussion about JIMMY HALL. I think Kid Rock's lameass performance overshadowed that fact that Jimmy Hall is a freakin' monster talent! I'm a little too young to have delved too deeply into the Capricorn thing that was happening in the '70s, but JEEZUS, I gotta pick me up some Wet Willie PRONTO. I was floored by the guy's soul, great great vocals and tastey harp and sax work. He dragged his last "lead" performance out a little much, but I can't say enough about how great he sounded.

In the "Good for business, but who gives a f*ck" category, I'll throw in: Kid, Crowe, Bruce Willis, John Bell, Popper, and Weir/Phil.
Kid is a joke, plain and simple. Those who think Kid Rock did a fine job are probably the same folks who believe Gregg Allman sings better now than he did in the early 1970s. Its called pitch. Kid can barely carry a tune. His Moogiview interview was insulting and showed that he doesn't have a clue.
Sheryl Crowe was just a waste of time. I would have rather heard a 20 minute instrumental.
Bruce Willis is a big movie star who wanted to sit in = good for business.
John Bell's vocal performance was just the worst I've heard at a show I've paid $ to see, EVER. Nails on a chalkboard. I thought his segment really slowed the proceedings. If you dig him, good for you, but I pray that this doesn't happen on every ABB/Panic show in the fall.
John Popper is a monstrously talented musician. I know this. But I'd rather hear Tom Doucette take a harmonica solo in any ABB tune than Popper. Sometimes after listening to a Popper solo, I feel like I've been assaulted.
I just watched the DEAD sit-in from 3/28. I went in with an open mind, and came away feeling very grateful (no pun intended) that I didn't pick up Dead tickets for this spring. Bob Weir is becoming shockingliy bad. I've never been a Bobby fan, but he is becoming an embarrassment. His vocals are awful and his playing is just meaningless. Those meandering jams went NOWHERE. Even Derek couldn't save that mess.

These are just my opinions, so please don't get your panties all in a wad. That is what this site is for, to voice opinions and observations and agree and disagree.
When all is said and done, it was a great run. Excited to see some guests, not so much to see others. I can't wait for Beacon 2010, just hoping for a few less guests

Kid Rock's comment "let's make some racket." IMO kinda sums up his musical ability right there.

I have a high opinion of the musical talents of the members of the ABB - can't say that about Kid Rock. From reading this website I think a lot of folks agree with me.

I agree about the Margolin comment. Would love to see some more Steady Rolling Bob Margolin with the ABB. Maybe at Wanee this summer?

I never heard it before that night, but now I can't get Ain't No Love In The Heart Of The City out of my head...and ithen t rolled right into Loan Me A Dime, so sweet. Other than the sheer excitment of the Clapton appearances, Boz was my fave guest of the run (at least as of right now, I reserve the right to change my opinion depending on whatever show I am watching/listening to at the moment )
