Oh. Wow. Um…Irving Azoff?

“Yes, hello. How are you?”


“Wonderful. I see this is some sort of alternate trimension where everything occurs simultaneously and American life is examined through the prism of a semi-defunct choogly-type band.”

Um. Yes. How did you do that?

“I have my moments of clarity now and then.”


“We gotta make this quick, though.”

Yeah. You look like you’re testifying before Congress or something.

“That’s because I’m testifying before Congress.”

I will let you go, then.


We’ll talk later.

“If you feel it necessary for me to be in character in whatever this is, then: fine..”

There’s just not a lot of material in Oteil Burbridge, man. I got space to fill.

“Makes sense.”

    looks like he’s got a peaceful easy fee-ling-uh in that pic

  2. Not enough material on Oteil? He sang Franklin’s with the Allmans. Originally, he played barefoot on an oriental rug and he would scat while slappin’ tha base in a solo out of drums.

    His sprawl into the Other One is gonna be fiercer than anything Phil’s done in years. (See- any Black Hearted Woman 1997-2014)

  3. Dude, what are taking that’s powerful enough to make Irving Azoff interesting? I’m going to Dead & Co tomorrow night and looking for a concert enhancer 🙂
