1969s rehearsal. Is there a show on the horizon? Yes!

We had a great rehearsal, and we are more than ready for a show. The 1969s will be coming at ya soon!

49th Vibration rehearsal in the park, sans Ape.

Tightening up the tunes for an upcoming show. Robbie and I took the acoustics out to the park to play for the squirrels.

Brees had another great year and the defense had another terrible year

NFL.com says "Last season (2015) marked a downturn for him (Brees)..."

Really?

In 2015 Brees was in the top 10 of every QB stat except for interceptions, which he was #12 (min 300 attempts). The Saints led the league in offense yards, and ranked #8 in points. You can't ask for more from the guy.

He can't play defense too. The Saints defense ranked #2 in defensive yards and points given up. An offense can't overcome that very often. With a terrible defense, they still managed to win 7 games. Hell, just a few years ago the Saints set the all-time record for the most yards allowed in a season.

I don't expect much different from the Saints in 2016. We are one game in, and it looks like more of the same. They scored 34 points, but gave up 35. Brees threw for 400+ yards and 4 TDs with no interceptions. He even threw a franchise long 98 yard TD to WR Brandin Cooks.

At 37 years old, we can't expect more than a couple of more good years out of Drew. Even the all-time greats (which he is one) hit a huge wall in their late 30s. By 37, most have already hit that wall, but even ironmen like Favre and Peyton eventually can't do it anymore, and 39-40 seams to be the absolute max.

Brees will be in Canton one day and the Saints will kick themselves for wasting his last few productive years. At least that's the way it's heading, but I would love to be surprised. We'll see.

4 miles done and pooped.

My run started out pretty warm. I think it was 91 degrees. But it's great now. cooled off and there's a breeze but I am spent.

Low Gear farewell show

9-3-16
I went out to the Curtain Club in Deep Ellum to see Low Gear's final show. I had not seen the band in over 10 years. My friends David Osbourn, Rob Wilson, and Roy Johnson got back in the band for the final show. The last few years Dave and Rob had moved on to other projects. One project being the band Driven Below, who also played that night.

It was a fun night. Both bands were awesome and it was good to talk to Rob and Roy, although I left before talking to Dave.


1969s rehearsal. New song in the works. Good jams.



The 1969s have been moving along pretty slowly these days, but we are keeping our chops up, and we have some new material in the works, so def progress. Hopefully a show will happen soon.
