William Hurt has been cast as the present-day version of Gregg Allman in the upcoming biopic Midnight Rider, Variety reports. The Allman Brothers Band drummer Butch Trucks, while aboard the Jam Cruise, shared the unexpected news that his nephew, guitarist Derek Trucks, will be leaving the band.
Shortly afterwards, it was confirmed that Warren Haynes would also be departing. Both musicians have highly successful touring bands independent of the Brothers, with Trucks winning a Grammy in Trucks and Haynes were both influential lead guitarists with The Allman Brothers. Trucks, a former child prodigy and now the driving guitarist behind the Grammy-winning Tedeschi Trucks Band, has been with the Brothers for 15 years, since he was twenty.
The move comes shortly after incorrect news from a Rolling Stone Magazine article, from a statement by Gregg Allman, that longtime bassist Oteil Burbridge would be leaving the band.
Burbridge and Butch Trucks adamantly denied the rumors, which appear to have simply been a matter of miscommunication. A total of 2. Holy Grail 1.

Many people were not as lucky. We feel so insanely thankful for the friends of ours, people they knew, and complete strangers who came out to help board windows, tarp up the roof, clean glass out of our walls, floors, and keepsakes, and the environment of compassion they created for our home and our neighbors. It will be a weird environment to come home to but I believe in the city that has made me who I am and I only wish that we could be there to love on our city in the moment that we need one another.
Which brings me to this fundraiser. The three of us are currently looking for new homes, replacing the items that are essential to work Jeremy and I are self employed and work from our home , and finding places for our items to be stored while we finish tour.
We lost most of the furniture in the house and a lot of the things that made home feel homely. Most of the workers helping strip the dangers from our home were people who had lost their jobs at Burger Up the night before.
This is a huge deal to us and a large chunk of this fund will be going towards helping the people who lost their jobs and went out to help others anyway.

LP Jazz. WMOE TODAY Perhaps one of the most revolutionary and influential people in the cannon of disco music, Cowley created his own brand of Hi-NRG dance music coined "The San Francisco Sound. During this time Patrick would create radio jingles and electronic pieces using the school's equipment, first a Putney, then an E-MU System and finally a Serge synthesizer. He would make experimental instrumental songs by blending various types of music and adapting them to the synthesizer.
By Patrick released a string of dance 12? Also that year, he founded Megatone Records and released his debut album. Around this time Patrick was hospitalized and diagnosed with a then-unknown illness: that would later be called AIDS. John had heard about Patrick's music from the legendary Sylvester and proposed he write music for his films.
Patrick jumped on this offer and sent reels of his college compositions from the 70s to John in LA. Coletti then used a variable speed oscillator to adjust the pitch and speed of Patrick's songs in-sync with the film scene. Influenced by Tomita, Wendy Carlos and Giorgio Moroder, Patrick forged an electronic sound from his collection of synthesizers, modified guitars and self-constructed equipment.
The listener enters a world of dark forbidden vices, introspective and reflective of Patrick's time spent in the bathhouses of San Francisco. The songs on "School Daze" range from sparse proto-techno to high octane funk to somber post-punk to musique concrete, revealing the depth of Cowley's unique talent.
Featuring over 80 minutes of music, this compilation contains soundtrack music from two Fox Studio films, "Muscle Up" and "School Daze", never before released on vinyl. The tapes were restored and transferred using the same speed and pitch settings, then remastered for vinyl by George Horn at Fantasy Studios in Berkeley, CA.

BUDGE But don't let all the references made just now lead you to believe this is anything other than pure, unadulterated Dino Jr. TINY LOSE Surpassed only in fame and visibility during the period by Michael Jackson's Thriller, the album remains idiosyncratic for its covetable combination of adventurous songwriting, precision-based performances, and reference-caliber fidelity.

GW ROQ SOME L. MARY J. This brings to an end five years of disputes and citizen outrage over potential proposals for the course.
Greenway was given the nod, according to the Council, because the Greenway plan involved significant renovation to the existing course with the aim of attracting more golfers as well as improving profitability. Greenway has a proven track record of going for "green" maintenance in which use of water and chemical fertilizers is reduced over other methods.
That anyone thought in the midst of the Great Recession it would be a good idea to raise taxes for swimming pools has a lot of folks up in arms, which is too bad as the emergency services definitely could use some help. Generally speaking, save for the pools thing, Measure C makes sense for a city that faces serious budget shortfalls. The new bike lane has some folks miffed, as they use their cars along what has become a main artery from one end of the Island to the other and has some others miffed over the loss of parking for an estimated vehicles.
This is a very bicycle friendly Island, and all of use would do well to get on and ride instead of putting more money in the hands of terror-supporting nations at the pump. Everyone slow down. We want to hear from Patty St. John on the issue before we make up our minds. Neither BikeAlameda. So who is stirring the pot here? So anyway Spring is holding a stiff arm out to prevent Summer from waltzing in wearing those thin dresses and lace-up shoes by keeping the fridge on pleasantly cool.
Unfortunately the cool weather seems to be prolonging the flu pandemic going on around here. Denby had to cancel several gigs due to the effects of this unusual virus, which appears to have a good 14 day incubation period before it sets in to strip the myelin sheath from nerves in the lungs.
Lungs not wanting to go around naked produce coughs and fluids about which adolesents like to tell jokes. The bug last a good week before the patient feels better, goes back to work, then has a relapse. This relapse can prove fatal in people over a certain age or with compromised immune systems.
While sneezing violently, Denby misstepped going down the stairs, tumbled, caught his foot between the stairs, and finally fell to the concrete, with a sound described vividly in certain cheap detective novels as "a sickening crack".
How many times did Nick Danger and Philip Marlow feel that sap on the noggin? No one knows but the Shadow knows. Denby lay there groaning as people stepped over him until he eventually crawled to the bus shelter, sat there groaning for 20 minutes, then got on with some difficulty to ride in his splendid made-in-Belgium bus, groaning, to his destination, entirely unable to really enjoy the continuously empty seats beside him, in front of him, and behind him.
No one wanted to sit near the man with disheveled hair, blood on his face, rumpled smelly clothes and a glazed look in his eye. When he got to his destination, he got off of the splendid made-in-Belgium bus and, there before the grand gates of the ER, fell down. So Denby holed up in his burrow, with his leg up in a cast sniffling, coughing, wheezing and generally feeling down instead of going out. From his window in the Island's Little Ghetto, he distracted himself by shining his flashlight through the bathroom window to startle the wood rats climbing the orange tree outside.
It is one thing to play the Blues, and quite another thing to have them. Jose came down with the same thing as well, so he missed out on a fine weekend that would have included Murmurana in the Uptown, the Greek festival up there beside the Mormon Temple in Oaktown, the Chinese celebrating something Chinese in Chinatown, and the SF Art Faire.
I feel guilty about my guilt complex, like, who am I to deserve such worry. The Editor did not have the opportunity to catch the flu. He much decided -- apparently against his will, if you can believe it -- to break bones differently from Denby. While working at the Jack Sparrow Orphanage, he stepped out of an elevator before it had completely risen to the level.
This is what happens when there is not enough money to properly maintain an Empire Elevator. Empire maintains offices in Petaluma, about an hour's drive away outside of commuter hours and if anyone had bothered to call Empire, well they would have had a maintenance man out there in a jiffy. Make that old elevator, creaky and clanking as it was, right as rain.
So, over time, the elevator took on the whimsical habits of an uncle going a little dotty, remembering the Great War, forgetting to stop in time, sometimes missing a floor entirely, often coming up just so far to pause tiredly as if nodding out, then jerk up suddenly again. The staff called the thing Old Sparky and the more experienced of them took the stairs in the old admin building, built in We could tell you more about Empire Elevator and its wonderful people, who do try very hard, and we could tell you more about this particular elevator, but that is not what you want to hear.
You want to hear how the Editor, arms loaded with paper-stuffed folders, unable to see down to his feet because of the things he was carrying and -- it must be admitted -- the consequences of being overly fond of beer, scotch and Irish potatoes hanging over his belt to obscur the view and snagged his foot on the edge of the floor, to go down without any more parentheses or pause to hit the floor. To cut to the moment, this weekend saw the Editor staying indoors with his right arm in a cast and his Spring supply of Weight Watchers instant dinners along with a book he had just purchased from an NPR affiliate.
Javier tore himself away from his new girlfriend to get some work done, and Chad soldiered on with the HTML. The rest of the staff kept tabs by phone. How many times must I tell you Jane? Don't call me chief! Out at sea, Pedro fiddled with the dials on his radio, trying to get his favorite preacher on the air.
Unfortunately the man was preparing to take his show on the road, so all he had were radio reruns. So while an old tape of a girl Pedro imagined must be tremendously beautiful sang a song about birds, the light strains of her voice drifting out across the waters, he stepped out to look at the stars. His father, a fisherman like himself, or vice versa, had taught him the old style of navigation. The stars were not a confusion of spangles as they are to most people, but guideposts set up there with allowance to drift along a predictable course.
Earlier in the day that was nearly done lately he had bumped his start-out time earlier due to the pinch of the Great Recession, and the shrinking supply of catch so as to capture more working hours there had been a solar eclipse. Everyone was saying that had been remarkable and that the next celestial event would be the traverse of Venus.
He wondered about what that would be like. Something so bright as Venus most times becomes a shadow as she passes before the face of the sun. This is because Venus is too distant from us. Friday's Tribune lay in the cabin with headlines like. Back in the Editor's cube with its humming machines and its small pool of light cast on the desk while all around him there was a darkness, he made ready to put this week's issue to bed.
He got a phone call from his boss, Katy, who wanted to know if he was coming to work in the morning. Thinking of the kids at the Orphanage, and the TAY kids, and those who had suffered the unspeakable, he said yes. I will see you tomorrow. If only life were like it can be in fiction, where the bullies get beatup and the good guys win over evil all the time, the Editor thought as he pressed the final keystrokes and turned from the computer to pick up an old fashioned, analog, paper-based book.
He liked the feel of the new book in his hands, with its perfect binding, its clay-baked cover sporting a sort of film noirish image. Best of all, the warm feel of the paper inside. The typeface was aldus, designed by Hermann Zapf in Been around a while. The book was seductive, almost pulling him away from his yet unfinished Carson McCullers. With a tug inside him, he that one down to finish off the end of the book he had been reading.
But he first had to find the place where he had left off. From far across the water, the long howl of the the throughpassing train ululated across the lonely waves of the estuary and the grasses of the Buena Vista flats as the locomotive hunted its way past the dark and shuttered doors of the Jack London Waterfront beneath the transit of Venus, headed off on its journey to parts unknown.
Spring comes to other parts of the world and they get peonies and impatiens. We get things like this. Got a lot of scattershot items this week. Spring has arrived and things just get that way. Spring what it is, most of the events have been rambunctious, as when IPD took down a fellow outside the Lost Weekend bar off Park Street recently. Made him take his shirt off and set the dog Sgt. Trumpet on him , they did.
Trumpet took a piece out of that man's rear and that quieted him down a bit. That'll teach you to treat with respect. Islanders down by Otis near Grand may have gotten a nasty sense of deja vu when a couple squad cars, an ambulance, two firetrucks and a fire department CP wagon all clustered up there on the Strand along with a pickup truck towing a dingy.
Not to worry. It was all about a sailboarder who got himself into a situation when the mast on his rig broke off in the Bay. Chief Zombeck remained calm and on top of things -- his men had no intention of pulling in a "floater" on their watch -- and the fellow was returned to land and his girlfriend with little drama.
A neighbor admiring the view from his balcony on Otis made the call when he witnessed the mishap at sea. Our onsite reporter got too bashful to interview the fellow when his girlfriend ran to meet him, so we don't have his name. The latest flap in town is all about the hospital losing money and ex-councilperson Frank Matarrese's article describing the problems.
The article provoked a number of angry editorial letters however, Frank basically stated just the facts, which got further attention in the Sun's front page article carrying the headline "Alameda Hospital is Bleeding. The Island is a real island in all physical particulars, and a local medical center is essential for services in the event of The Big One, not to mention the basic day to day need to provide care for 77, inhabitants, so the issue is no joke.
It is interesting that one program meant to restore revenue involved taking over the Water's Edge nursing home, even though an early effort to cut costs involved dumping the geropsych unit as well as other senior care services. It seems the administration is belatedly realizing that the way to stay alive is to gather in all these satellite programs and offices to replace all the stuff they had cut out early on before the property tax levy that established the LAFCO.
There is encouraging talk about creating a Wound unit off campus, so maybe the place is finally getting on the right track after a few years of quixotic management. We hate to see the otherwise very well qualified primary care staff get dumped on for the sake of bad business decisions.
Had an abruptly rude experience visiting our Municipal Power website recently? Turns out the site was hacked in what is becoming the new trend in Black Hat activity on the internet. Gone are the "script kiddies" and irreverent smarty-pants geeks who loved to get into the UCSF system and corporate sites to play with logos like graffiti vandals.
Big syndicate international crime is now involved with all those viruses and hacks that some of you claimed were just fantasies conjured by consultants seeking more lucrative contracts. Most likely the hack, which sent visitors to AMP off to Viagra offers, was generated by a blind automated attack that trolls sites one by one looking for weak defenses. The bad links have been removed, but it will be a while before the world internet cache purges the shortcuts stored by DNS servers.
You may have noticed that Election Season is approaching. First among the endorsements that already are giving our embattled Post Office something to do, we find John Knox White, of the Alameda Point Collaborative presenting his mite of wisdom.
Without prejudice we quote his press release:. The Alameda Point Collaborative is holding its annual fundraiser on May 20 from at their award winning Ploughshares Nursery. APC strives to build a strong, safe and healthy community including quality and affordable housing and comprehensive services with units of housing and residents.
APC came to our attention during the latter days of the SunCal episode. If you recall, SunCal's promise to provide "affordable housing" was another promise that turned out to be composed of "vaporware.
Last week was notable in violent crimes, featuring an armed robbery of the Domino's Pizza on Lincoln near Pagano's Hardware, the armed robbery of a citizen which cost him his cell phone, and a number of strong arm robberies as well as assaults. Not reported but duly noted is a rash of car vandalism events featuring the smashing of the driver-side side mirror. O'Reilly's on Blanding reported over five visitors seeking replacement mirror material, or temporary mirror devices in a single day.
This does not include folks going direct to the dealer for repairs. If you got a fold-in mirror, do it. It's Spring, the kids are out of school and things happen.
Has anyone noticed the sudden proliferation of "questionable persons" downtown, accompanied by a rather silent and vacated Park street midweek despite the nice weather?
Time for the nicer folks to get out and visit downtown. Talk to each other and exchange the news. Its our town -- lets work to keep Alameda flat. Cloud-free skies and moderate weather brought out the locals to a barely advertised Park Street Spring Festival.
With barely a mention in either of the two local papers, no flyers and no program, thousands still came on down to gawp at overpriced tchotchkes and excellent photographs of someone else's vacation in Africa. Quite a number of people took the bait -- obviously these folks still have jobs -- and corn that costs 69 cents at Lucky's went for four bucks at a rapid rate. Okay, we confess. We did buy the Methodist tri-tip sandwich.
But only to reassure the Lutherans among us that the fare provided was dry as toast. We got the petting zoo with lambs and chickens. We got the corn. We got the corn dogs. We got the garlic fries like every town in Minnesotta. But we also got key lime calimari. This is California, of course. There was music, of course, and we are pleased to report that this festival improved on others with two stages over one measily podium.
Heard some hot blues from the Clapton cover band the Kevin Russell Band. They kicked out a nice and tasty, albeit short, version of Badge and had folks dancing in the street. Well, not for Badge, but you know.
There was all kinds of romping and wandering and wine-swilling and beer drinking and nervious jumping up and down. At the end of the day a fine time was had by all. So anyway May blew in flouncing the white dress of fog as she always does and nevermind the global warming, that gal had arrived purely to enjoy a good time. Bright blue clear skies decided to show themselves after the high fog was done and now we are well into Spring, the Most Dangerous Season and here is May, one shoe off and laughing too loud with her dress up around her upper thighs.
Your stockings are all torn, you have lost a shoe, your hair is a mess, and your dress is hiked up way too far. You are drunk! Go home! Although Spring has sprung, the nights remain cool such that the Household of Marlene and Andre remains packed and close to home for sleeping hours. Javier has been off gallivanting with his new girlfriend, which offers a bit of space, but things have been cramped as the Nation ventures into what many consider the seventh year at the minimum of the Great Recession.
Jobless Recovery? What is that? Who, then, is recovering? Those who have jobs see diminished paychecks. Those have none see none. Who is benefitting from this supposed "jobless recovery? Down at the Old Same Place Bar, the apparent survivors of the Conservative Primary shakeout have been gathering to compare notes, commiserate, and berate the Liberals as the cause of all their troubles.
That is the difference between Rightist and Leftist. The Leftist blames the System. The Rightist blames the Leftists. Nick Vilespew has been spouting the usual sorts of anti-humanist venom he is known for, but now that the President has vaguely suggested in a sort of liberal way he is, after all, a liberal from the liberal party that gay marriage may not be such a bad thing after all, Nick has been unaccustomedly without words. He has always been without soul or thought, but never before without words.
Well that takes a lot of courage. To say that this person and that person have a good right to get married. Still it sets some folks aback, those folks who had taken seperate but equal as a given.
Babar, as the presumptive Primary candidate nominee, has expressed reservations. He has expressed reservations about everything, largely because in a field of wannabees, Babar is a Real Conservative. Babar would rather hew the line toward the economy, save that this wretched economy is largely the fault of his Conservative predecessor and his handlers are worried that the Public will suddenly develop something like long term memory capacities.
Meanwhile Papoon, on the other side of the fence politically, has not had an easy time of it, for he and his party have been blamed for all sorts of social ills, chief among which is the failure to fix the doomed economy by the next commercial back in The night draws on, the fog rolls in, and the crew begins to clean up the detritus of the Native Son's Spring Fling.
Others got to go out dancing and go home with whomever for whatever to make whathow for how do you do and here's looking at you. Some folks lives roll easy as a breeze. The others rollmop up the spilled beer. A police helicopter hovered over some section of downtown Oaktown, where some kind of protest against the usual outrage was going on.
From this distance they could not hear the screams, the crump of explosives, the bullhorns, nor could they smell the tear gas. But they could see the chopper hovering. Welcome to America in the 21st Century. Welcome to the New World Order. A small form darted down from somewhere and flicked among the blossoms of jasmine.
From far across the water, the long howl of the the throughpassing train ululated across the 99 percent waves of the estuary and the Spring grasses of the Buena Vista flats as the locomotive wended its way past the dark and shuttered doors of the Jack London Waterfront, headed off on its journey to parts unknown.
Our headline photo this week continues the avian theme with a shot of this fellow feeding near a construction site. The quick brief life of birds teaches us. Make the most of May, for time shall soon be a dyin'. That Alaskan caboose rattled through here last week with what we think is the last of gully washers for a while. We saw temps into the 80's around here with more on the way. The fog belt hung offshore until sundown the way it normally does so what passes for normal around here has hopes of happening.
The times are harsh. The talk is all about reproductive rights and womens rights, not a day goes by without some outrage about racial injustice while gays find it increasingly dangerous to walk down the street because of vicious gangs. So a few folk set up a place in a ghetto where they can walk free on the streets, be themselves and just live undisturbed. Sometimes it seems the best one can do is just flee the country entirely to go make a living in France.
Sound like today? No, we are describing the historical setting for "Blues for an Alabama Sky", a play that is experiencing some kind of revival around the country. The Beatles continued to absorb influences long after their initial success, often finding new musical and lyrical avenues by listening to their contemporaries, including Bob Dylan , the Who , Frank Zappa , the Lovin' Spoonful , the Byrds and the Beach Boys , whose album Pet Sounds amazed and inspired McCartney.
Originating as a skiffle group, the Beatles quickly embraced s rock and roll and helped pioneer the Merseybeat genre,  and their repertoire ultimately expanded to include a broad variety of pop music.
Although the song "Yesterday" was not the first pop record to employ orchestral strings, it marked the group's first recorded use of classical music elements.
Gould observes: "The more traditional sound of strings allowed for a fresh appreciation of their talent as composers by listeners who were otherwise allergic to the din of drums and electric guitars. The band's stylistic range expanded in another direction with their B-side "Rain", described by Martin Strong as "the first overtly psychedelic Beatles record". Innovation was the most striking feature of their creative evolution, according to music historian and pianist Michael Campbell: "'A Day in the Life' encapsulates the art and achievement of the Beatles as well as any single track can.
It highlights key features of their music: the sound imagination, the persistence of tuneful melody, and the close coordination between words and music. It represents a new category of song — more sophisticated than pop There literally had never before been a song — classical or vernacular — that had blended so many disparate elements so imaginatively.
Author Dominic Pedler describes the way they crossed musical styles: "Far from moving sequentially from one genre to another as is sometimes conveniently suggested the group maintained in parallel their mastery of the traditional, catchy chart hit while simultaneously forging rock and dabbling with a wide range of peripheral influences from country to vaudeville.
One of these threads was their take on folk music, which would form such essential groundwork for their later collisions with Indian music and philosophy. George Martin 's close involvement in his role as producer made him one of the leading candidates for the informal title of the " fifth Beatle ".
Collaborating with Lennon and McCartney required Martin to adapt to their different approaches to songwriting and recording. MacDonald comments, "while [he] worked more naturally with the conventionally articulate McCartney, the challenge of catering to Lennon's intuitive approach generally spurred him to his more original arrangements, of which ' Being for the Benefit of Mr. Compared with Paul's songs, all of which seemed to keep in some sort of touch with reality, John's had a psychedelic, almost mystical quality On the other hand, I would be stupid to pretend that drugs didn't figure quite heavily in the Beatles' lives at that time Not only was I not into it myself, I couldn't see the need for it; and there's no doubt that, if I too had been on dope, Pepper would never have been the album it was.
Perhaps it was the combination of dope and no dope that worked, who knows? Harrison echoed Martin's description of his stabilising role: "I think we just grew through those years together, him as the straight man and us as the loonies; but he was always there for us to interpret our madness — we used to be slightly avant-garde on certain days of the week, and he would be there as the anchor person, to communicate that through the engineers and on to the tape.
Making innovative use of technology while expanding the possibilities of recorded music, the Beatles urged experimentation by Martin and his recording engineers. Seeking ways to put chance occurrences to creative use, accidental guitar feedback, a resonating glass bottle, a tape loaded the wrong way round so that it played backwards — any of these might be incorporated into their music. Along with innovative studio techniques such as sound effects , unconventional microphone placements, tape loops, double tracking and vari-speed recording, the Beatles augmented their songs with instruments that were unconventional in rock music at the time.
These included string and brass ensembles as well as Indian instruments such as the sitar in "Norwegian Wood" and the swarmandal in "Strawberry Fields Forever".
Former Rolling Stone associate editor Robert Greenfield compared the Beatles to Picasso , as "artists who broke through the constraints of their time period to come up with something that was unique and original They not only sparked the British Invasion of the US,  they became a globally influential phenomenon as well. Their musical innovations and commercial success inspired musicians worldwide. According to Gould, the Beatles changed the way people listened to popular music and experienced its role in their lives.
From what began as the Beatlemania fad, the group's popularity grew into what was seen as an embodiment of sociocultural movements of the decade.
As icons of the s counterculture , Gould continues, they became a catalyst for bohemianism and activism in various social and political arenas, fuelling movements such as women's liberation , gay liberation and environmentalism. Other commentators such as Mikal Gilmore and Todd Leopold have traced the inception of their socio-cultural impact earlier, interpreting even the Beatlemania period, particularly on their first visit to the US, as a key moment in the development of generational awareness.
