I tend to run in phases with how frequently I visit this site over the years, but it recently occurred to me that I haven't seen anything from two posters who used to post all of the time 3 or 4 years ago. I don't wish to dredge up any bad blood or negative experiences if there is any, but whatever happened to the kid who used to get all of the photos with Derek and post them here. I think he ended up getting the DTB to play his HS (Westchester County area, I believe)??? Go to college and forget about us? I remember seeing him outside the Beacon with his camera one year.

And there was another guy (not sure how old), that i think used a handle with "Eddy" in it, and was a big fan of Steve Kimmock (sp?)?? he always made a lot of thoughtful post evaluating the shows....

Anyway, just curious......

I remember them both, but can't remember their names. Haven't seen them around in quite a while.

Just for kicks sometime, pull up the list of all your old posts (hit "find" under any post), go way back and pull up a thread, and look at the names of some of the regular posters who were around here for years but disappeared. It's kinda weird.

Remember Cliffsongs, later cliffntina, or something like that? Sometimes I think he might be some of the trolls here. He started a thread to get the forum to demand that gina leave, or he was leaving. As you can see, he's gone and gina is still here.

I miss Mikey, too! Great kid!

Eddie's still around I think. He usually posts around Beacon time. Another good dude!

I always wonder about Peter Nelson. He always had a wealth of information about various artists. A nice guy.

I once got Mule tickets from Vinsanity. I know he went to college on the West Coast and I have seen him here and there at some shows.

The last I saw EddieP might have been in the "shop talk" section talking guitars and gear, etc. I think he'll usually pop in around Wharfstock time, too.

I also really miss PeterNelson. Since he would frequently pop up at Chicago area shows, I considered him one of the local crew even though he lived down state a bit. I had a personal email for him, and I wrote him 5 or 6 times just to make sure he was doing o.k., but I never received any sort of reply.

I hope he's doing o.k.

Vinsanity's name is Jeff. I went to that DTB show that he organized at his high school and it was probably the best DTB show I have seen to date. Great atmosphere! He is a really nice kid. We sat right behind him at the Winter Of Love Mule shows at the Beacon a couple of years back. Hope he is doing well with school and everything.

The show was run as a fundraiser. The beneficiary was a parents group raising money to pay for artificial turf for local schools, to circumvent a state law limiting the spending spending in the district (one of the highest per capita income areas in the state).

When I spoke to Yonrico and Kofi when the show was announced they were not particularly happy about the situation.

The high fee paid for this gig (there was no venue cost since it was held in the local high school so they could afford it) helped to shut out a legitimate charity bid for the DTB for the Special Olympics of New Jersey.

I still have to give the guy a lot of credit for pulling off what he did, but I wish the circumstances had been different

I never understood the animosity against this kid and the cause of helping schools.

Interesting take that parents who volunteer their time and raise money for school facilities are circumventing laws. I'm working on a fundraising project right now at my kids' school because the local law is that schools should fend for themselves related to playgrounds.

Since I'm on this project, I've come to realize that charitable organizations tend not to give grants as easily to schools if the parents can afford it out of their pockets. The schools in our area don't qualify for certain state & fed funding programs that lower income areas do. So, you raise money in your community.

The only people this cost anything was the dTb and the community who paid for the tickets. I fail to see how the dTb was prevented from helping an additional cause in the hundreds of open dates they had as a band over their career.

There have been far bigger scams pulled here than that one, WBD.

EddieP - Setlist Predictor Extrordinaire!

PeterNelson - one of the best to ever post here. He didn't write posts, he crafted them.

I just ran in to some past HTW'ers this weekend. The general vibe, and perhaps the elephant in the room, is that this place has developed quite the negative vibe as of late. It has me questionning what keeps drawing me here. But I know why well enough

That really was a bizarre show. I remember it well.

I have it on my iPod. It's not a bad show.

Those of you who frequent the Trades and Vines sections should remember Merlin. Not only a very talented music archivist, but one of the most generous people ever known around here. What a great guy. I hope he's well.

Remember the original charity was the homeless in the Sudan.

Then once the band was booked it became artificial turf for the upscale towns' ballparks.

I took a lot of flak for pointing out some of those problems.

Maybe he's still wondering why Uncle Bob (the number three guy at MSG) couldn't get him backstage passes for this year's Beacon run.

I believe you have answered your own question.

Perhaps, but I voted for him every day. He made a sucker out of me, that's fersure.


Micah was also a very active taker of shows, promised to reoffer and never did.

He caught quite a bit of grief for his actions and had some very good people arguing with each other as to how he should be treated.

Some good regulars quit being regular posters because of his garbage.

Wasn't there a poster who had a family member who was ill, then died, and a fund was created to help them, and it turned out to be a sham? Someone can tell me to shut up if this is a touchy subject.

But can he get backstage for Banana Schpeel?

I can understand the switch in charities. Most of them don't have the significant amount of cash required to cover the up-front and guarantee costs for such a concert. And of course the point was to raise money for a charity, not necessarily a legitimate one.

But I bet Uncle Bob can help with getting him backstage for Banana Schpeel.
