Homeskoolin’ Bonus.... “Are…You Going….To San…Francisco?”

00:00 - Rehearsing Fleetwood Mac - The Chain
08:13 - Break & discussion
13:40 - The Band - The Weight rehearsal

Uncle Larry shares a few rehearsal memories from a super fun gig that happened in San Francisco over the last few days.

He got to see some old friends and play some good old rock and roll with some of his bosses, past and present.... and had an absolutely lovely time.

(and now, Tom Bukovac takes over speaking)

These clips taken from the Jimmy Irsay exhibit that happened on 12/10/22, in San Francisco CA, starring:
Ann Wilson, Little Johnny Fogerty, Stephen Stills, Buddy Guy, Kenny Aronoff, Kenny Wayne, Ebo, Tony Lucido, Mike Mills, Mike Wanchic, Danny Nucci, Stephen Barber, Jeffrey Gorman, Carmella Ramsey, Edgerrin James and others.

Special thank you to Paul Moak for letting me borrow his amazing sounding resonator guitar.
If anyone out there has one EXACTLY like this one for sale i will buy it.

Tony Lucido is filmed here playing the famed Alembic fretless bass that John Mcvie used on this little Fleetwood Mac album you may have heard called "Rumours". The fretboard is shiny aluminum....pretty cool bass. Jimmy bought it for a song.

Bottom line…let me say once again...i am SO thankful and grateful for all the cool places this instrument that i have worked sooooooooo hard at in this life has taken me....i will NEVER take it for granted. The magic equation that applies to basically everything in's 99% drive...1%t talent.
Work ethic trumps EVERYTHING.

and way more importantly than all this, i want to say goodbye to a dear friend....Zak Godwin II.

see you down the road bro bro
