The footage is tough to watch.

I can't even.

It's brutal...

Yeah I'm not ready to go there. This one hurts a lot... as a performer I put him right there with Prince, just an absolutely captivating presence on the stage, and I was lucky enough to see him in tiny clubs a handful of times. Fuck.

That's one video I'll never watch. This was a tough day at work.  :shakehead:

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

Wow. Just... wow.

What a way to go.

This one is hurting me. Fuck.
Phish makes me happy.  It's as simple as that.

I was just watching an interview with him, and he is lamenting the state of music these days lacking soul and what not, and he says "Mumford and Sons is about as sexual as a brick."   :hereitisyousentimentalbastard

What a crazy way to go out.

I saw him once in GA. Was some wild music.

I gotta say, that while I'm aware that ARU was a big influence for Phish I'm not really very familiar with their music. 

But the above statement definitely makes me feel an affinity for Col. Bruce.

RIP, now is probably as good a time as any to get acquainted with his work.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Aww damn I haven't checked out the Paug for a hot minute and I see this plus other bad shit...I need to seek enlightenment and understanding so there can be another voice for healing.
The events in our lives happen in a sequence in time, but in their significance to ourselves they find their own order; the continuous thread of revelation.

Yeah, at least check out the YEM from the last Albany Palace Theatre show.  You must be familiar with that jam.  Pretty sure it is Spring 93 but it could be 92....all time YEM.

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Well yeah dude, 5-5-93.  And obvs, it's amazing.  I think they are on the Tiptina 91 release too. 

Just haven't really heard much of his own music.

And the first ARU album is amazing. Stream it wherever you stream things or listen to it on the tubes...
