A guy I play with swears by Kensington Shoe Repair if you're in the east bay. Although he also says the guy is a little prickly about not being rushed . . .

Not to steal dbax's turn to ask a question, but it was a dollar (just to see 'em in the tree museum), Big Yellow Taxi.

Don,

I''l be there on 5 November, come by the merchandise table and introduce yourself.

I was there last night to see Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe, and Jim Keltner, Elvis Costello was the special guest, very fun show.

Well, I was referring to Ronnie Wood -- he played bass for Beck (who I agree is a great guitarist), but despite now being a Rolling Stone, isn't near Beck's class.

Joncon, I had to look up the answer, so won't give it away or pretend to win, but you'll have to tell me which guitarist from that band is your favorite. I hope I know the answer . . .

BTW, I do some volunteer work for Little Feat, they're touring now and are still a great show.

Right you are. LOTS of songs to choose from, those are great examples. (Others are Mona (I like the Quicksilver cover), Who Do You Love.)

Your turn . . .

A rock and roll pioneer died this year, but leaves behind the "beat" named after him. Name him, and a song that uses the beat.

I've always heard (and agree) that it refers to Janis Joplin. (Sadly, never got to see her perform live. Festival Express has some great stuff in it, though.)

Right you are. (Mick Fleetwood and Peter McVie, after whom Fleetwood Mac was named, were also in the Bluesbreakers; it took a while to convince McVie to leave, so the first couple of Fleetwood Mac gigs had a different bass player.) Green was a helluva guitarist.

Your turn . . .

Sorry for the delay, was traveling.

A not-so-tough one: who replaced Eric Clapton in John Mayall's Bluesbreakers?

That one I know -- it's from the name of the "sex toy" in Burroughs's novel Naked Lunch, as I recall.

Discussion: Shoulder joint replacement

Haven't had it, but did talk to a surgeon about it (he said I would need one eventually), and talked to someone who had it and a firend who's a doctor. All seemed to think that throwing overhand afterwards was pretty much out of the question. It's also a long, slow rehab -- the advice was to hold out as long as possible. (The doctor/friend did think that I could play golf after 9-12 months.)

Good luck -- I'd love to hear other folks' takes/experiences.

Hey, Steve,

Hope to get a chance to see you in Reno, though the 50 AAAs are in Carson City. Been a long time, hope you're doing well.

Topic: Rules of the game
Discussion: how do you see this call

Nope, the rule is specific that it doesn't matter if it's touched or not. That's different if the runner is hit by a batted ball -- if the ball has been touched, the ball hitting the runner doesn't make him out. (In fact, the rule says the runner is only out if the ball hasn't been touched OR hasn't passed a fielder, but in practice the latter exception only applies if no fielder COULD make a play on the ball. Years ago, in a fastpitch game, I was going from second when a ground ball in the hole got past the third baseman and hit me. The ump said the shortstop had a play, so I was out. I wrote to Hal Lebovitz (who used to do the rules column in TSN), he said the ump was right.)

Discussion: born in 48

hey steve, don't know if you found a team, but it'd be great to see you at a tournament, or even a practice, and catch up on old times. FWIW, Etch always was damn good, he'd be an asset to most any team. Steve, drop me a line at frampton54 at hotmail if you read this.
