Xmas Jam – Lineup, Predictions and Wishlist

We’d like to welcome longtime reader and commenter Frank Sturges into the fold to give us a local boy’s thoughts on the Xmas Jam lineup…

The Warren Haynes Xmas Jam is a chance for North Carolina to remind the rest of the country that every winter it dominates the winter festival scene.

Warren always brings a stellar group of musicians to the stage to jam all night long, take on some covers and participate in interesting collaborations. This year the Jam turns 20 (no more teenage angst) and expands to two nights. So, who did Mr. Haynes bring to the table for this epic event?

Well, the answer is that it’s a solid lineup, but nothing really blows me away. The more you look at it, the more it appeals as an Xmas Jam lineup. As you’re looking, keep in mind that these acts don’t exist in isolation but as a set of musicians to work together throughout the event. And when you start to think of what can happen with this group, there is some definite excitement.

The B List: Grousing MTV’s Vault – The ’80s

The suits at MTV weren’t happy to see YouTube come into the picture a few years back to become THE place to watch old music videos. MTV made videos what they are before relegating them to MTV2 in lieu of such brilliant programing as The Real World – Weehawken and True Life: My Son Fucks Goats. This week, MTV finally got in the game by launching MTV Music.

The MTV Music portal features over 16,000 videos, Unplugged performances and exclusive MTV concert footage with the promise of much more to come. I spent a few hours combing through the site last night and found some really cool clips. Here’s ten great videos from the ’80s I hadn’t seen in years…

10. Every Little Kiss – Bruce Hornsby

Remember when Bruce Hornsby used to be a pop star? There are plenty of old Bruuuuce videos on MTV Music besides Every Little Kiss including Valley Road, The Way It Is and Across The River.

9. Foolish Heart – Grateful Dead

Most people focus on Touch of Grey when discussing the Grateful Dead’s music videos, but they actually made a number of promotional videos including Just A Little Light, Hell In A Bucket, We Can Run and this clip for Built To Last’s Foolish Heart.

READ ON for eight more videos from deep within MTV’s vault…
