@MayerHawthorne Wants to Replace Nickelback in the Lions’ Halftime Show

9 Nov

Ha! This is awesome and I sure hope it happens.  Mayer Hawthorne campaigning to replace Nickelback as the Thanksgiving Day halftime performer during the annual Turkey Bowl in Detroit where he just so happens to be from (well Ann Arbor).  I mean how can you have a Canadian band play Thanksgiving in the United States?  If they were playing halftime of a CFL game during Thanksgiving in Canada, okay, totally fine.  Better question may be, who’s bright idea was it to book Nickelback for this in the first place?

Check out THIS article from PASTE Magazine with the campaign video from Mayer himself.

If you decide to get in the campaign spirit, tweet @MayerHawthrone and use the hash tag #MayerForDetroit.

 

 

News: “Mickey Hart: Another Dead Tour Is ‘Always a Possibility’ (via Rolling Stone)”

24 Aug

Check out THIS article today from RollingStone.com by Andy Greene

Excerpt below:

The Dead last toured in 2009. “There was certainly personal tension on that tour,” said Hart. “I mean, there were people that didn’t get along. And there were musical differences. But nothing that couldn’t be negotiated. I mean, there are differences in any family. But I didn’t skip a beat. I’ve been in very interesting projects over the past few years and I have absolutely no inclination to join Furthur. Bob’s doing just what he wants to do and so am I.”

Hart refuses to rule out the possibility of another Dead tour, though. “I would never say never,” he says. “As long as we’re above ground, there’s always a possibility. I don’t see any reason why we couldn’t do more shows someday, but right now isn’t the right time.”
