Yeah we're into the second week of this and who knows what the hell is going to stop. It's driving me crazy man. I'm so stir crazy. It's like I want to go out and do stuff. You know how bad I wanted to go to. The phone unlocks music store the other day as wanting to go buy a CD. And I know all them stores are closed and even if they are open. I wouldn't go. I went to a local restaurant because they're trying to support the small businesses and they were doing curbside takeout orders and like chorus. They were backed up super long. And I'm sitting in my car reading a book and thinking this is more fun than being Al's awaited like forty five minutes for my food. I was like this is still better than being at home or like. Normally you'd be pissed for having to wait that long but in the circumstance like wow this the most exciting thing that's happened all day ask. We got out drove just drove around the country because we just had to get out of the house but didn't say anything all that special what it was like. At least we got out of the alphabet.

But the way it's going to work best when this shit all blows over and you're able to come back over here to the studio sit across from me and you and I can be here and take phone calls that way because man we get too many on the line.

Just share this week's episode quarantine sessions volume two. I'm sure you will because it's going to be a lot of fun. Well I guess we got to talk about it. Well I guess before we do. I should say we're playing some music today This is what I picked this. I just found this is one of my last finds before the quarantine began in all the music stores. Shut down the CDs called a tribute to pink. Floyd that's it. It's got some weird stuff on it. Another brick in the wall featuring fee waybill of the tubes run like hell featuring diesel Zappa and I think Glenn who sings on that one to note the dude from Chicago. This crazy album one. I'M GONNA out at the end of the show to awesome cover. Welcome to the sheen dig this featuring Doug Panic of Kings axe Gary Holy on guitar. Mike Caro formerly of toto on Bass Keyboards Derek. Charene and on Drums Greg Bissonnette. That's crazy grown for the end of the show. That'll be our playout song. Bob Kulich written all over it. Not this one actually really. I don't see no Bob Hewitt on here. Maybe somewhere on their hurt but junior eric singer plays on breathing. The air came out in two thousand four on platinum disc. Never heard of that so I dealt mad. Yes well start things off with the sad news brother. Make it a double official. GotTa say it. On the show I hate Saito loud mandate break smart Iraq and Pod is not happening in twenty twenty unfortunately damn you corona virus. I'll make it brief. I mean essentially. There was just a whole lot of factors that kind of came into making the decision. But they're all related to the pandemic and basically all the repercussions that come with a pandemic and things that fall in line on the business side just basically a bunch of Dominos started falling and it got to the point where it was like this. It's GONNA be disastrous. If we go forward and we were the success of it was gonNA be incredibly hamstrung between between South and being able to sell hotel rooms and also the touring. The industry has been turned inside out and even even in a good scenario A lot of the tours are GONNA get reschedule. Which means a lot of our guests would probably not going to be able to come. And as a promoter. You don't WanNa you don't WanNa promote a bunch of guests that are gonNA wind up dropping off and also You know people don't have disposable income so you know this is this is a situation has hit the economy hard and it's just one of the things took a step back and it's like okay. People's health is at risk. We don't know how long this is going to go on for and people are gonNA need every penny they can get going into the rest of this year so it just made the most sense to postpone the twenty twenty. One and I'm in talks with the hotel. Were hoping to make an agreement to do it there next year so we can just kind of keep the same set up. We were going to have But I'm waiting to hear back from them so stay but stay. Tuned refunds have already been processed. Everybody should get their money back soon and The that's where we're at now. I'm sorry it couldn't happen. You guys all know how much work we put into this thing. And it's heartbreaking but it just as the best decision right now I mean. What can you do man? I mean the they're telling us stay home don't congregate with people you know. And that's what rock and pot is a big congregation all kinds of people hanging out in the same place next to each other. Enjoying each other and that can happen with what's going on you know and even if it clears up tomorrow who knows how long until things get back to normal you know and I look things ain't going to be tomorrow so it's socks. I'm GonNa Miss so many of my friends that I was looking forward to seeing this summer. You know and a lot of people are going to be let down. Because they can't make it but I'm sure everybody's got to understand. Do you WANNA get on a plane. Right now really. Do you WanNa go to stay in a hotel room. I don't I don't want to do these things. It's just not safe out there so stay home and listen to podcasts sea. Yeah I mean every everybody that three act that has been very good about it from the castors to the to the guests that we had scheduled to the attendees at across the board. Everyone's been super understanding and and everyone that knows me and Erin know that you know. This event means a lot to us in. We love kind of being the the host of this thing every year so it hurts to not be able to put it on like you said. We're GONNA miss everybody this summer but you know we had that much more time to try to plant something really great.
