  • RaymondGiuffrida If you could ask Gillian or Dave to cover one of your favorite songs, what might some of your choices be? This thought festered in my brain today as Radiohead's "Blackstar" came on my ipod. I immediately had to listen to the Gillian version right after because it is so damn classic. I feel that either of them could take on almost type of song and make it their own. If Sturgill Simpson can make a weird country version of Nirvana's "In Bloom", there are endless possibilities for taking a song and completely recreating the mood and tempo. I personallywould like to see how Gillian would sing Sam Cooke's "A Change is Gonna Come". But I would really love to see them try and cover Smashing Pumpkins "Today".  Slow it down and get some crazy Dave solos and I think they would nail the Pumpkins. Every time I hear Beach House's "Myth", I picture the Machine playing a more folky version w/ Dave singing lead. So much space in that song for some crazy Dave solos.

  • Brian1964Smith Sadly, our video system doesn't seem to care for this URL, but I'm quite sure that you will! Enjoy, and we hope that 2018 has gotten off to a good start for you & yours. Only 53 days until Dave Rawlings Machine returns to Santa Cruz. Hope to see you there.
