Garth Hudson and Taj Mahal To Join Warren Haynes, Dr. John And More For The Last Waltz Celebration In Chicago

first_imgIt is hard to believe that one of the most memorable performances ever, The Last Waltz, put on by The Band took place 40 years ago at San Francisco’s Winterland Ballroom. It is arguably considered the best single night concert in history, as The Band was joined by a plethora of uber-talented special guests and friends.In honor of The Last Waltz’s 40th anniversary, Warren Haynes, Dr. John (who also played the original Last Waltz), Cyril Neville, Don Was, Dave Malone, and many more will come together to perform at The Chicago Theatre on Sunday, April 9th. Original The Band member Garth Hudson and blues legend Taj Mahal will also join the lineup to pay tribute to the special performance. To top it all off, Mark Mullins will lead an all-star horn section, which will feature the original horn arrangements of Allen Toussaint.Warren Haynes had the following to say about the show, “Whenever you’re doing someone else’s music, you’re paying respect and bringing the deepest parts of your own personality to bear. And you hope for surprises. . . . These songs – so deeply ingrained in the zeitgeist of who we are in this country – hearing them now is like finding a rare jewel.” Grammy Award-winning musician/producer Don Was also chimed in about The Band’s role in music history, “People love these songs and they’ve become a part of the emotional zeitgeist of country. And unlike the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Beach Boys or Pink Floyd songs, there’s nobody that’s playing this stuff for folks. You can’t really go to a concert and hear anyone playing The Band’s songs.”Tickets for The Last Waltz 40 performance at The Chicago Theatre on April 9th are currently on sale and can be purchased here.[photos courtesy of Blackbird Presents]last_img read more

Powered by Firework In the history of head coaches of the Indian cricket team, the one name that has been associated with the most disputes and detested by the country’s cricket fandom is Greg Chappell. In just two years of his stint with Team India, the controversial figure earned much detest following his spat with former captain Sourav Ganguly, and a number of players who were dissatisfied with the former Aussie cricketer’s management. Such one name is Harbhajan Singh, as the iconic spinner recently opened up on how Chappell did the damage to the squad.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Reuters/HT PhotoFollowing the departure of New Zealand hall of fame John Wright, Greg Chappell joined as India’s head coach in 2005. In addition to his falling out with Ganguly, Chappell also earned slack for India’s poor performance at the 2007 Cricket World Cup, the same tournament that Harbhajan Singh dubs as ‘the lowest point’ of his career.In a recent chat in his former teammate Aakash Chopra’s official YouTube channel, Harbhajan opened up on the former Men in Blue gaffer, accusing him of damaging the squad during his tenure.Advertisement “When Greg Chappell came as the coach of our side, he disrupted the entire team, no one knows what was his motive when he came to coach us, no one knows how to disrupt a solid team better than him, he used to do whatever he wanted,” Bhajji said in the video.India were eliminated in the first round of the 2007 World Cup, followed by Chappell’s rift with Ganguly, which made him a detesting figure in the Indian sports media and the cricket fans. In addition to Harbhajan himself, senior faces of the team such as Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan spoke against Chappell and his coaching method.Advertisement “2007 50-over World Cup has to be the lowest point of my career, I thought we are going through such a difficult time and I also thought that maybe it is not right time to play for India, wrong people were at the helm of Indian cricket, Greg Chappell was trying to divide and lead, he used to do such things,” the 39 year old added.If you like reading about MMA, make sure you check out MMAIndia.com Also follow India’s biggest arm wrestling tournament at ProPanja.comAlso read-Cricketers and Indian athletes mourn the passing of Sushant Singh RajputWatch: Christian Eriksen scores screamer directly from a corner in Coppa Italia semis Advertisementlast_img read more
