I saw B.B. at NOLA Jazz Fest last year. I was so excited to see him, but his performance was really painful to watch. He had an hour long set, didn’t make it out onto the stage until about 15-20 minutes in, talked for another 10 minutes before playing his first note, and then only played three songs (he played parts of three songs, where he would play for about 30 seconds, pause and talk to the crowd, play another 30 seconds and then let his band take over). The man is a legend, and at 87 years old (at the time) he had already gone way beyond any expectations one could reasonably have for an artist, but it was still a depressing performance to say the least. Even so, anyone who could boo an 88 year old legend has no soul.

WHAT??? I was out of the country for the last week and Gabe left VG? NOOOOOO! This is terrible news to come back to.

We will miss you, Gabe! Thank you for all the laughs, for making me think, and most importantly, for getting me through work each day. I couldn’t have done it with you and VG.

Please come back and visit from time to time!

“I saw a commercial on late night TV, it said, ‘Forget everything you know about slipcovers.’ So I did. And it was a load off my mind. Then the commercial tried to sell me slipcovers, and I didn’t know what the hell they were.” – Mitch Hedberg

The best.

Maybe he should have hedged his bet though. It might have turned out better for him.

Wait, he was a ghost? I thought they just bought a new dad at the store and put him on the roof to take him home, like a Christmas tree.
