Trying to find a recording I beleive in either 92 0r 93 at Soilder Field, Chicago of Jerry coming out and playing with Sting during Fields of Gold. Any help would be appreciated.

It was Soldier '93, and I believe the song was "Tea In The Sahara".

Wow. Don't hold back. Too bad. I love him...in a non gay way of course.

I think I just figured out what I'm gonna be for Halloween!! Thanks!!!

I actually dont mind Sting, (and wasnt Branford Marsalis a member of his band at one point in the late 80's early 90's? Good enough for Branford, good enough for me :hail: ) but the adverse reaction here made me laugh because it brought back memories of that summer tour. All my tour buddies on that tour used to call him "Stin(k)" As in: "What time is Stink's set over so I can go into the stadium?"

In addition to Tea in the Sahara I believe Jer also sat in on Walking on the Moon. (I like that song)

I seem to remember that in the late 80's .... ? The tour with 10,000 Maniacs and Violent Femmes ...
I remember seeing a documentary on Sting .... the band he had at the time was living in house recording an album ....he was trying to remember one of his tunes on bass ... he couldn't remember it and his bass guy had to show him ,.....
:D

The Police were good. Sting, I am not fond of. Or Brandford, for that matter. Seriously... he's like Kenny G but black.

I was just reading in McNally's book about how Jerry and Phil taught the original Warlocks to jam after seeing Coltrane. The big man would be rolling in his Giant Stepping grave over them playing with Sting.

Hah! :lol: Look out! It's friday, and I'm not pulling any punches today. :lol: I don't care how many Branford-lovers there are out there, or that the band finally played better when he came around.


If it helps, I like his brother a lot less. :mad: :twisted:



Poor guy... we've totally trashed his thread. :lol:

Kadlecik & I used to do "Walking In Your Footsteps"- actually that cover was a holdover from his Hairball Willy days. Good jamming song.

I have a video of Hairball doing that tune. It was very good. I also saw many of the Sting/Dead shows and liked them very much. Sting is a really great singer and bass player. But the sets were very much the same!

Saw Stink once on his dream of the blue turtles(?) tour. I had been given free tickets. As much as I found the writing clever and the musicianship excellent, he bored the hell out of me.
