Photo montage video I put together for “Beijing Blues” the title track of Woodie Alan’s debut CD and the song that really began to turn us into a real band.
“I Don’t Care” at the Xiamen Beach Festival, in front a crowd of 5-6,000. As described in the prologue of Big in China. This multi-camera shoot for and broadcast on Fujian TV.
Original tune “Sri Lankan Sunset” at the Star Live on Beijing Blues tour of China. May 2009. This performance was part of a drummer’s showcase and highlights Lu Wei.
Bob Dylan’s “Meet Me in the Morning” at the JZ Club, Hangzhou, China. This was a memorable gig and we’re happy to have this clip documenting it.

Acoustic “Beijing Blues.” The Stone Boat May, 2009. CD release tour.
Bob Dylan’s “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go” at Jianghu Jiuba, Beijing. March 2008, just as we were starting to really gel. We got much better than this, but it captures a moment.
“Will the Circle be Unbroken” from our second night at the Xiamen Beach Festival. Another performance discussed in Big in China. With Dave Loevinger back in Beijing, we performed as a 4-piece. That made us weaker, but we were so much more confident and relaxed.

Bob Weir returned to music for the first time since he cancelled all remaining tour dates early in the summer. Alongside pal Phil Lesh and San Francisco Giants third base coach (and musician) Tim Flannery, the trio sang the National Anthem at Game 3 of the NLCS before the game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Ah, San […]
Check out the video below: a pretty great Geraldo Rivera report about the Allman Brothers Band and their 1979 reunion: Geraldo is a legit fan and did a great radio interview with me when One Way Out came out. Lots of great lines in this report, including, “Their music is old fashioned… they don’t even play disco.” Cool interviews […]
