  1. The Mac Says:

    Gregg is a good dude, I went to Stoga with him back in the day. Good to see him become the rockstar he always seemed to be.

  2. just Says:

    good dude or not he should learn fans come to see and HEAR Chan, not him. ‘Just saw them at the Fox in Oakland. Every instrument he played was mixed louder than Chan’s mic. The lighting guy needs a kick in the butt too (wtf was that?!!). I love her new cd (Sun). I’ve been listening to her music for years and am truly endeared by her music and her way of moving through this world. I appreciate the beauty and love and confusion she sees in the world (i’m also a huge Dylan fan for similar reasons). All this comes through in her music. But not when some rockstar-in-his-own-mind, appointed “musical director” decides what he’s playing is more important than anything Chan is doing. At the very least Chan needs to put a leash on this dog and give it well intended jerk. Step off “good dude” or “rockstar you always seemed to be” or whatever you are. Love YOU Chan, but I doubt I’ll go to another show while this doof is in the band.
