BAM Magazine back as online only publication. Lobster blogging there, too!
Some great things on tap for 2012. Your Crustacean / DJ is also blogging for Bam Magazine, that started in San Jose in the mid 1970s, moved to Oakland, produced the BAMMIES, the Bay Area Music Awards, and also started the BAM Walk of Fame in front of the Bill Graham Civic in San Francisco, the site for many of the BAMMIES. Lobster presented Carlos Santana with the first Best Guitarist award, and many audio presentations of the plaques in the sidewalk in front of the venerated hall. Look for the re-boot of that tradition, and read the blog about Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers and Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band at BamMagazine.com.
The audio referred to can be heard right here. An exclusive version of "Breakdown" from Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers first appearance in San Francisco at The Old Waldorf, August 1977.
