Listen To Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Recent Tributes To Leonard Cohen & Leon Russell

first_imgTedeschi Trucks Band will continue their fall tour tonight, November 15th, in Louisville, KY. 2016 has been a tough year for music fans, with too many legends lost to count. The past weekend took two more from the Earth, in Leonard Cohen and Leon Russell. The two greats have influenced so many current musicians, and the Tedeschi Trucks Band has had the opportunity to show their appreciation while on the road.As TTB played three shows last weekend, the group had the opportunity to honor both artists’ legacies. The run started last Friday, November 11th, when Tedeschi Trucks opened up their fall tour run in Minneapolis, MN. There they included their cover of “Bird On The Wire,” a song written by the great Leonard Cohen.Listen to a full recording of the 11/11 performance featuring “Bird On The Wire,” courtesy of Jam Buzz.Setlist: Don’t Know What, Within You Without You > Just As Strange, The Sky Is Crying, Crying Over, Bird On The Wire, I Wish I Knew, Let Me Get By, Leavin’ Trunk, Laugh About It, Get What You Deserve, I Pity The Fool, I Want MoreEncore: Let’s Go Get StonedThe run continued with a performance in Peoria, IL on Sunday November 13th, the night after news broke of Leon Russell’s death. Having collaborated with Russell numerous times in the past, the loss of their musical colleague certainly influenced their song selection. The band opened up with “Space Captain,” a tune from the Mad Dogs & Englishmen album on which Russell was the musical director. They also encored with “Delta Lady,” another tune from the Mad Dogs release.Watch videos of “Space Captain” and “Delta Lady,” streaming below, courtesy of YouTube user Rick Maddox.last_img read more

Sherwood: Spurs up for the fight

first_img Sherwood’s future is in serious doubt, but the Spurs manager is determined to make sure the club finish the campaign as strongly as possible. He said: ” At this stage of the season it’s about trying to get the points. It can’t always be pretty, sometimes you have to dig in and work for each other and I thought we certainly didn’t look like a team who had their sunglasses and flip-flops packed ready to go on holiday. “They’ve realised there’s still a job to be done for the great travelling support that we bring and they will try their best right to the death. “We’ve got two more games. We go away to West Ham, which is a derby that we need to win, and then we come home and we’re going to send them away happy after beating Aston Villa in the last game of the season. That’s what the plan is. “I continue to do my job, prepare the players the best I can and make sure they are up for the fight right until the final whistle of the season. If we continue to win, then all good.” Tottenham had a man advantage for the final 38 minutes of the match after Stoke captain Ryan Shawcross picked up a second yellow card for a foul on Rose. But the hosts responded to the crowd’s sense of injustice and finished the game looking much the stronger team. Sherwood said: “It’s a tough place to come, and we knew that. They’ve taken some big scalps here, they’ve only been beaten three times, and probably on everyone’s coupon this was a banana skin, but it never looked like that. “We should have come in at half-time more than two goals up. We dominated the game. I said to the players at half-time to be a bit more patient on the ball, a few more forward runs and we’ll create something, but it seemed to give them the initiative after they went down to 10 men. “The crowd were fantastic, drove them on, and we had to fight it out. But there were some good performances. “The criticism of Tottenham teams in the past sometimes was they didn’t want to fight it out but this team don’t roll over and they’re willing to put their bodies on the line for the cause. I demand nothing less than that.” Stoke had hoped to reach two club milestones of five home wins in a row and 47 points, equalling their best tally for a Premier League season. Surpassing that mark and achieving a first top-10 finish have been major targets for the Potters throughout the season, but they have work still to do in their final two games against Fulham and West Brom. Manager Mark Hughes was proud of the showing his players produced in adversity but was left ruing a failure to make the most of their opportunities. He said: “We had any number of chances that we could have created when we went down to 10 men, and that’s the disappointing part because we put in a great performance and had no reward.” Spurs still have an outside chance of finishing in fourth place, although it is much more likely they will qualify for the Europa League rather than the Champions League. Danny Rose scored the only goal of the game in the 33rd minute – his first for Tottenham in four years – to hand Stoke just a third home Barclays Premier League defeat of the season. Tim Sherwood hailed the fighting spirit of his Tottenham players in overcoming Stoke at a hostile Britannia Stadium. Press Associationlast_img read more

California inferno sets off political firestorm

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.The rebuff outraged Republicans. Many attacked the vote as a scheme to take advantage of GOP absences. Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas accused Democrats of acting like “vultures circling above the burned-out homes of California families.” Republicans maneuvered three times to shut the House for the afternoon. Each attempt failed. Extension of the children’s health insurance bill ultimately passed, 265-142. The vitriol was the latest in a series of searing partisan bickering over global warming, federal funding and patriotism that have erupted since the fires broke out last weekend. As crews battled more than a dozen blazes from Ventura County to the Mexican border, Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats linked the fires to global warming. Several Democrats used the issue to take swipes at the White House. WASHINGTON – The blazes in California this week sparked a political firestorm in Washington on Thursday as House Republicans tried to block a vote expanding children’s health insurance. With seven GOP lawmakers in the Southland touring fire damage and helping evacuated constituents, Republicans asked Democrats to delay until next week votes on a revised but still-controversial bill expanding the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. Democrats refused. The Californians’ absence would not affect the final outcome, they contended, while also noting that the House conducted critical votes in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina even though Louisiana and Mississippi lawmakers rushed to their home states. “We all understand how important it is for members to be home with their constituents. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t continue with the work of government,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “The threat of global warming is significantly the risk for wildfires. The Bush administration has ignored this,” said Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Sen. Barbara Boxer and presidential hopeful Chris Dodd, D-Conn., accused Iraq of sucking away National Guard resources that might have gone to firefighting. The California National Guard’s equipment, she noted during a hearing, is down 50 percent, Boxer noted at a hearing, “because they’re all in Iraq.” Both accusations infuriated Republicans. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-San Diego, called the National Guard contention “nuts ” and noted in a television interview that only about 10 percent of the Guard is in Iraq or Afghanistan. And Rep. Brian Bilbray, R-Solana Beach, said the global warming and Iraq war concerns are coming from “the `blame America first’ crowd in Washington.” The fires, Bilbray said, “are caused by winds that have been around for thousands of years.” Rep. Jerry Lewis, R-Redlands, issued a statement excoriating Democrats for holding the vote on SCHIP. He and other California Republicans have objected to the $35 billion expansion that would cover 10 million additional kids. “The Democratic leadership is once again showing that they only care about scoring political points,” he said in a statement. “They are showing a blatant disregard for the people we are elected to represent and are trying to help.” Waxman, whose district includes Malibu, where an estimated 4,400 acres were scorched, said California Republicans could have flown home either after Thursday’s vote or earlier in the week. “The day they chose to go out was calculated,” Waxman said. “The fires have been going on for a week, and I think they just chose today to go out there because they wanted to complain.” Pelosi, meanwhile, suggested that California’s Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger – who supports expanding the health insurance bill – personally urged her to go forward with the vote.
