Oteil Burbridge Sings Lead For “China Doll” During Dead & Co’s Shoreline Run Opener [Video/Full Show Audio]
Dead & Co | Shoreline Shoreline Amphitheatre | Mountain View, CA | 6/3/2017 | Photo: Matthew Rea Load remaining images Dead & Company are fresh into their summer tour, which kicked off over Memorial Day Weekend. This past weekend saw the Grateful Dead act hit the Hollywood Bowl for two nights before the first of two performances at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, California, last night. Perhaps, the stand-out moment of the two-set performance was “China Doll,” which was used as a vehicle to finally let Oteil Burbridge sing. The Allman Brothers / Aquarium Rescue Unit bassist had previously hinted that he would sing lead this summer. However, to the delight of fans, that moment came sooner than expected at the start of Dead & Co’s second set following in the classic opening pairing of “China Cat Sunflower” into “I Know You Rider.” Burbridge’s stellar vocal debut with the ensemble is doubly impressive when considering it was a particularly difficult day for the musician, as his fellow band mate Gregg Allman was laid to rest across the country Macon, Georgia, a few hours earlier.Dead & Company Takes Hollywood Bowl On A “Dark Star” Space Voyage For The Ages [Video/Full Audio]Watch Oteil Burbridge sing lead on “China Doll,” courtesy of NalaThaBoxerOutside of the highly anticipated vocal debut of Burbridge, other highlights of Dead & Co’s performance that evening included the ever-popular “Viola Lee Blues,” which was lead in by show opener “Playin’ In The Band” with a particularly psychedelic jam through. “One More Saturday Night” closed out the first set, and though its position was uncharacteristic (the song has traditionally found itself used as a show opener, second set closer, or encore), the group’s performance of the night-appropriate song was a spirited way to end the first set. For the second set, standout moments included the seventeen-minute “Eyes of the World,” “The Wheel” which built out of “Drums” and “Space,” and the final number of the set, “Good Lovin’,” which the group noted on Instagram was originally supposed to be “Turn On Your Love Light.” You can check out videos and hear the full audio of the show below, as well as check out a photo gallery from last night, courtesy of Matthew Rea.[Photo: Erik Kabik]Setlist: Dead & Co | Shoreline Amphitheatre | Mountain View, CA | 6/4/17I: Playin’ in the Band, Viola Lee Blues, Tennessee Jed, Here Comes Sunshine, Candyman, Me and My Uncle, Friend of the Devil, One More Saturday NightII: China Cat Sunflower, I Know You Rider, China Doll, Eyes of the World, Deal, Drums, Space, The Wheel, Looks Like Rain, Good Lovin’E: Black Muddy RiverFirst Set Opener, “Playing In The Band”Second Set Opener, “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider”Listen to the full show audio, courtesy of Jeff Frank:
Although only half of the season has passed in the best leagues of the world, calculations have already started about who might win the Golden Shoe for the best striker of the current season this year. Edin Džeko is also mentioned among the candidates.At this moment, according to the latest data from October 15 this year, Edin Džeko is 12th in the race for the best striker of the world with 14.0 points. Seven other players, including Chelsea’s Diego Costa, have identical number of points as the BiH Diamond, which definitely announces the uncertain “matches” in which the players will fight for the Golden Shoe.What is interesting is that the only player above Edin Džeko on the list, in terms of the League of five, is Modeste from FC Köln, who is on the 11th place with seven scored goals and 14.0 points won, which is the score identical to the one of Džeko.Ten more players are above them two, but since the coefficient of the League of five is 2.0, unlike the coefficients 1.0 and 1.5, if he continues the great goal-getter performance this year Džeko might be on the top of the ranking for the Golden Shoe. The coefficient is very important because it is multiplied by the number of scored goals, which eventually gives the number of points that each player achieves.First on the table is Vitali Rodionov from the Bulgarian Borisov, who scored 14 goals in the league with a coefficient of 1.5 and has 21.0 points in total.In comparison with the best world football players of today, Džeko is better than Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. Officially the best player of the world, the star of Barcelona Messi has 10.0 points with five goals scored, while Ronaldo has only 4.0 points with only two goals.This is another one in a row of successes of the BiH Diamond. Congratulations and lots of luck in the race for the best striker in the world!(Source: radiosarajevo.ba)
Tags: English Amateur Championship Gregory’s tee shot to the par three 16th was straight at the pin, but ran through the green, while Sloman found the putting surface on the way to a winning par. However, he immediately lost his lead on the 17th which he conceded after hitting his tee shot into heather and then into further trouble. After exchanging a couple of early holes with birdies, the players steadily halved their way to the 11th, where Gaunt pulled ahead with a par. But Fitzpatrick’s par on 14 made them all square again and his birdie on 16 meant the 18-year-old was one up with two to play. In the last match, Jack Gaunt (Drayton Park, Staffordshire) found a similar solution, with his own birdie on 18 to defeat Alex Fitzpatrick (Hallamshire, Yorkshire). The other three games were intensely tight – and none more so than the match between Todd Clements (Braintree, Essex) and Jake Bolton (Ogbourne Downs, Dorset) saw only three holes change hands. Click here for full scores. He defeated Lancashire’s Jack Clarkson (Lancaster) 3/2, taking charge on the back nine with three birdies. The pair were nip and tuck on the outward half with Poppleton’s birdie on the first immediately answered by Clarkson’s chip-in on the second. The semi-finals of the English amateur championship at The Berkshire will see Nick Poppleton play Todd Clements while Tom Sloman takes on Jack Gaunt. They came through a series of exciting quarter final matches with only Poppleton (Wath, Yorkshire) winning before the 18th. On the 18th, though, Sloman made no mistakes, rolling in a 20ft birdie putt which Gregory was unable to match. 5 Aug 2017 Tight quarter finals go the distance Bolton birdied the fifth to go one up but lost the sixth to a par. Clements went one up with a birdie at the 9th and stayed there – with the players halving every hole on the way in and covering the back nine in two under par. Clements is pictured being congratulated by his sister (image copyright Leaderboard Photography). But Gaunt produced a blistering finish with birdies on both 17 and 18 to take his place in his second consecutive semi-final. They reached the turn all square and Sloman moved ahead for the first time with a birdie three on the 11th. He was never to drop behind, although Gregory got him back to all square with a birdie on the long 15, hitting the green in two while Sloman visited the heather. In the third game Tom Sloman (Taunton & Pickeridge, Somerset) ended the challenge of England international Scott Gregory (Corhampton, Hampshire) with a birdie on the last after a ding-dong end to their game. Clarkson twice edged ahead with birdies on three and eight but was pulled back each time, notably on the ninth which Poppleton eagled. After the turn, Poppleton pulled steadily ahead, getting to three up with a birdie on 15 and closing out the game on the next hole.
