    TMZ reporting Chester Bennington hung himself. On Chris Cornell's birthday. Ugh.

    Huge bummer. I hadn't listened to them in years, but really enjoyed them when I was younger, through Meteora, probably.

    If any of you dudes are ever struggling with depression or whatever, don't hesitate to send me a message. I'm sure most everyone else on here would say the same and want to help, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with asking for help.

    Their latest stuff has been pretty weak, but Meteora is still one of my all time favorite albums. I still listen to the whole thing every few weeks.

    Well shit.
    Look at me post coming up...

    He once sat in front of me at my kid's Christmas play...which is how the school found out his kid went there. Afterwards he apparently stuck around for a couple of hours taking pictures with the high school kids. My wife was a tutor at their school, and worked with his son. Really sucks for his family.

    John Moreland is one of the best songwriters I've ever had the pleasure of seeing.

    I happened to check his tour and see he was in Charlotte last night. Bought tickets and drove straight up there from work. Man, he knows how to leave you feeling some kind of way.

    I'm hoping to catch him the next time he's back in the Midwest touring. Be amazing if he could come to Lincoln or somewhere close to me like that.

    That 'Break My Heart Sweetly' performance on Colbert was so good but I can't get into anything else, really.

    Friend is seeing him tonight so interested in his take.

    I'm a huge fan of "Gospel," "Blacklist," and "God's Medicine." Truthfully, I'm a big fan of all of them and as great as his records are, his live show hits you pretty hard.

    Likely a long post inbound, but I slept on an airport floor last night and I'm running on a lot of coffee. Here's a rundown of our experience at Newport this year.

    Artists I saw at least most of the set
    Friday:
    Matt the Electrician - great songwriting and a genuinely awesome human being on stage.
    Aaron Lee Tasjan - solid, very good guitarist
    Blind Pilot - great set with a great crowd
    Hurray for the Riff Raff - crowd was into it, but not for me
    Shovels and Rope - a blast as usual, they always kill it, especially for a two-piece
    Ben Gibbard - cool to see solo, opened with Such Great Heights, then a good mix of Death Cab stuff
    The Head and the Heart - not a fan, folk music for people that don't like folk music, plus the sound was rough
    Nancy and Beth w/ Nick Offerman - meh, not as funny as they thought, but Nick was great
    Fleet Foxes - awesome. If you're at all a fan, try to catch them on this tour.

    I'll break this up so it isn't quite the wall of text.

    Saturday:
    Mt. Joy - a lot of fun, especially since I'd not heard of them
    Chicano Batman - put on an excellent show, but I knew none of their music
    Grandma's Hand Band - Hiss Golden Messenger with Justin Vernon sitting in, they all performed Bill Withers songs, fantastic set
    Mandolin Orange - solid, but nothing special, I was a little disappointed since I really enjoy their studio stuff.
    Nikki Lane - wandered in on this by chance and she's a lot of fun live
    Jim James - I was excited to see him solo, but he seemed unprepared. His voice was great, but I wasn't enthralled, but I'm a big MMJ fan
    Avett Brothers - eh. Still a fun live show, but their last few albums aren't good imo
    Billy Bragg and Joe Henry - set of covers of songs about trains. Pretty cool to hear their stories and they harmonize so well.
    Wilco - holy shit. Plus, they brought Billy Bragg out for "California Stars" to close the day.

    Last one for now.

    Sunday:
    Choir Choir Choir - cool concept where they hand out song sheets and teach parts to the crowd. Finished with a thousand people all singing Cohen's "Hallelujah."
    Preservation Hall Jazz Band - goddamn can those dudes play
    Chuck! - a Chuck Berry tribute set with tons of artists sitting in. A lot of fun and Deer Tick did an amazing rendition of Run Run Rudolph
    Pinegrove - new band for me, but wow. There's a reason that stage was packed out. I'm expecting them to blow up soon.
    Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats - surprise set as it was listed as Unannounced until minutes before the set. Absolutely a must see any time. They brought out Preservation Hall for the last two songs, then concluded S.O.B. with a second line march through the crowd and around the area.
    John Paul White - nice chance to sit down for the first time, but just an okay set.
    Speak Out! - another collaboration with different artists covering protest songs. Margo Price, Jim James, Shakey Graves, and Nick Offerman made appearances. Closed with Nathaniel Rateliff leading a cover of Fortunate Son.
    American Acoustic - Joint set of Punch Brothers and a new Sara Watkins group. I only caught part as I had to get a good spot for the final set, but her and Chris Thile were excellent as always.
    John Prine - What can I say? The man is a treasure and still puts on a hell of a show. A parade of guests joined him, leading to everyone shitting themselves when Roger Waters made a surprise appearance. The set closed with tons of the artists coming out for a sing-a-long of "Paradise."

    Finally, bumped into Shakey Graves on my 5AM flight. Didn't bother him much, but told him it was a pleasure to see him and he shook my hand, then let him catch some sleep.

    Goddamn, what a weekend.

    Charles Bradley passed over the weekend.
    Here is a trailer of the documentary they did about him a few years ago, during his first album release.


    And here is one of his songs from his last album.


    He was an amazing person and will be missed.

    I took my wife and daughter to see him a few years ago at black mountain. I talked to him for a few minutes and he was one of the nicest people I have ever met. He was still amazed that so many people showed up to see him.

    RIP Tom Petty. One of the best (and most underappreciated) musicians of my generation.
