DC REMAINDERS UPDATE
Last night the band was interviewed by journalism legend Sam Donaldson, shown below with me and Roger McGuinn as we waited to go on. Later on everybody went to a Mexican restaurant where some of us had more margaritas than we really needed.
True Anecdote: Amy Tan brought a portable karaoke device on the tour, and we were using it in the hotel, and we got Roger to sing along to "Turn Turn Turn," which he sang on the original Byrds recording. The machine rates each performance on a scale of zero to 100, and it gave Roger a 96 on "Turn Turn Turn." We told him he's going to have to do better if he wants to have a career in the music business.
Roger will be playing with us tonight in Washington at the 930 Club. Come on out and join us. It's for a good cause, and you can rate Roger's performance on "Turn Turn Turn."
UPDATE from the s.b.: Ted tells us there will be regular video updates on the Remainders blog, so keep checking back.
