How Many More Times?

Treat me the way you do . . .

Jesus. Arm fatigue? Really? That’s what the mole is leaking now? How much more can trickle out of 4949 Marie DeBartolo Way in Santa Clara? Camp has apparently gone well by all the accounting of the local scribes, and the people actually witnessing the practices. But yet again, there’s another rumor from colin Cowherd AND Mike Silver that he need rest as the team is rebuilding his motion.

FUnny as this wasn’t an issue last year. Or it was under the radar? I don’t know. The Athletic’s Ted Nguyen asked a coach at practice today and he said “I’ve never heard anything about that…” so there you go. More grist for the bullshit mill of sportswriters. Funny thing is, Grant Cohn, the guy who shits on every 49er, has little to nothing to say about it. And at least he’s local.

So at some point soon, Trey will take the field and the world will see what we have. It’s funny that some scribes still point to the fact that Jimmy is on the team. As if we aren’t trying like hell to get rid of him.

No word on Deebo but at this point no news is good news. He’s under contract for the season, and we will work out a del at some point. Like 10 minutes after Jimmy G is traded to the Falcons.

    The crowd reception is epic.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    My sister saw them as the opener for Country Joe and the Fish at the Fillmore, but by that time in the tour, Zepplin was blowing them off the stage and they ended up headlining. She came to see Country Joe but said they were ‘pretty good.’

  3. Lurker John says:

    Still one of Zep’s best tunes and it came on their first album.

    I think we’re all ready for this endless fucking offseason to end. 11 more days. Oh, and Grant Cohn is a certified tool.

  4. Lurker John says:

    I love how subdued the audiences were in those early Zep videos. Check for a pulse! lol

  5. Winder says:

    That was a great Zep tune. They sure took the rock world by storm when they first came out.

  6. unca_chuck says:

    There’s a black and white vid of Hendrix playing in Stockholm Sweden, and the audience is just SO polite. Even they were a little more ecxited than the Danish crowd.

  7. Lurker John says:

    I’m not sure they knew how to react to new acts like Zeppelin and Hendrix and others. They were so much more intense than the earlier years of rock ‘n’ roll. It’s weird to see now, but maybe they were a little overwhelmed. Then came Sabbath, Purple, etc., not to mention the burgeoning prog rock scene. Reminds me of that scene from “Back to the Future” when Marty says, “I guess you’re not ready for that yet. But your kids are going to LOVE it!” lol

    I wish I could’ve been there for some of those shows. Still cherish that music, though, and listen to it all the time. It’s just not done like that anymore, to our detriment. Auto tune, compression, robotic drum machines, everything sounds too similar these days.

    Thank God for my ever-growing CD collection!

    Yeah, I missed it by 5 years. When I was 14 and just getting started in the druggie/stoner/music world, seeing the Dead, Dylan, and Neil Young in 1975 was pretty intense, but I mean my older sisters saw everyone that passed through SF. The Beatles, the Doors, Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Airplane, Janis, Quicksilver, Pigpen w/the Dead, on and on. Even still I saw a ton of shows myself but to go back in time would be epic.

    Yeah, the huge leaps in music from the teenybopper ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand’ to ‘Are You Experienced’ two years later is quite the seismic shift.

  9. Lurker John says:

    Yep, SF would’ve been quite the place to be during those years. Amazing music scene.

  10. Lurker John says:

    Take the Voodoo Child version above. People just weren’t doing that with the guitar yet. Jimi was quite literally ahead of his time. That’s an oft overused term, but 100% accurate in his case.

    Google “loudness war” for interesting info on what’s happened to the recording industry in the past 30 years or so.

  11. unca_chuck says:

    To me there are a few essential things to listen to by Jimi. The acoustic version of Hear My train A’comin’, The Woodstock Star Spangled banner, and the Fillmore East Machine Gun.

  12. Winder says:

    Hard drugs destroyed most all the good will that SF had. From 67-68 things just turned to shit. It was all pretty much an impossible dream anyway. Money still rules the world. The music stayed pretty good though and for quite awhile you could see really good shows for 6-7 dollars.

  13. unca_chuck says:

    I think it was $5.50 to see SNACK Sunday at Kezar in ’75. Yeah, when I got into smoking and partying, it was such a bittersweet deal walking around the Haight in the early-mid 70s as you could sense the edges of the summer of love and the beauty of what happened, completely unscripted, but wonderful. It was trampled down by greed, desperation, and misguided hope.

  14. unca_chuck says:

    Here’s Jim Morrison’s thoughts on the Summer of Love.

  15. unca_chuck says:

    I guess you had to be there to see and feel the shift from peace, love, and joy to greed, commercialism, and exploitation. It started in ’65 with the Merry Pranksters, the Dead, and the Acid tests.

    • Winder says:

      Yep, and it’s attraction was strong. But people being who they are fucked everything up.

    • unca_chuck says:

      The people in place at the time blamed the media for exponentially speeding up the downfall with all the incendiary articles and overblown hyperbole about what the people there were trying to do in the summer of 1967.

      Even through the be-ins and acid-fueled raves for a good 2 and a half years (from ‘late 64 to early 67) it was still a very underground and unknown movement. i mean, even Ken Kesey and Timothy Leary were at odd with each other regarding how to spread the message, but it was still an ethereal and subjective fight that was talked about in the media, but mainly as a think-tank kind of discussion. Once LSD was illegalized, the press ran with it and the Reefer Madness of the 30s became the LSD brain-melt of the 60s.

      Desperate (or even simply curious or bored) kids from all over the country flocked to the Haight driven by the talk of sex, drugs, and rock and roll, trying to catch the dream only to be used, exploited, and fucked over by the pushers, dealers, and pimps looking to score easy money. Most got fucked over by a system built to overreact.

    Maybe I should turn this into a music blog. This offseason will never END!!!

    • Winder says:

      It kinda already is. It’s a good thing. And, even though the Giants showed some spark recently I am so ready for football.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    Yep. That’s how it was when I was a kid. Baseball was a nice diversion until the Giants faded in the fall and football geared up in September.
