The show was absolutely packed with smokin’ hot UM jams, but a section in set one certainly stands out for obvious reasons.The band called on bassist Arthur Barrow, who worked extensively with Frank Zappa in the 70’s and 80’s, to lend a hand for two debut Zappa covers. With Barrow replacing Ryan Stasik, the band went into “Soul Food I” before playing Zappa’s “Treacherous Cretins,” to the immense delight of fans of both Zappa and UM. Barrow stayed on for “Glory,” an Umphrey’s original, before Stasik closed out the set with “Piranhas > Wizard Burial Ground.”Leave it to Umphrey’s McGee to host a legend like Arthur Barrow for two debut songs for a tour closer. The remainder of the show was just as hot, with a second-set opening “40’s Theme” and a “Puppet String” that began in set two and concluded as the last song of the encore. Umphrey’s McGee are off until April 6th, where they’ll perform once again in Oxford, MS. They’re also playing an “All Night Wrong” set at the Major Rager, coming up on April 7th, with help from horn players Natalie Cressman and Jennifer Hartswick. More details about that here.You can see the full setlist below:Setlist: Umphrey’s McGee at The Wiltern, Los Angeles, CA – 3/26/16:Set One: Le Blitz > Educated Guess, The Crooked One > Example 1, Attachments, Soul Food I** > Treacherous Cretins** > Glory*, Piranhas > Wizard Burial GroundSet Two: 40’s Theme, Puppet String > Daffodils, Wappy Sprayberry > The Bottom Half, Hurt Bird Bath, HindsightEncore: Ignition (Remix), Upward > Puppet StringNotes:* with Arthur Barrow on bass** Debut (Frank Zappa) with Arthur Barrow on bassCheck out images of both bands from this great performance, courtesy of Steve Rose Photos:
Cream formed in 1966 as a “power trio” project featuring Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, and Jack Bruce. The three landed on the name “Cream” because they were considered the “cream of the crop” amongst blues and jazz musicians in the exploding British music scene. While the project was short-lived, Cream proved to be one of the most influential rock bands in history. Primarily active for all of two years, with minor reunions in 1993 and 2005, the eccentric sound of Cream is defined through a blues rock/hard rock hybrid that combines the psychedelic themes of the late ’60s with Clapton’s unique guitar playing, the bass-thumping notes and vocal extremities of Jack Bruce, and the jazz-infused percussive snaps of Ginger Baker. They came out with songs like “Strange Brew,” “Crossroads,” and “Badge” in their first year together, and went on to continue their fame with tunes like “Sunshine of Your Love,” “I Feel Free,” and “White Room.”On November 26th 1968–48 years ago today–Cream played their farewell show at London’s Royal Albert Hall. The final show–and the previous night’s performance–were recorded and broadcast by BBC in 1969. Selections from the gigs were later included on Goodbye, the band’s final release, along with previously unreleased studio material. You can watch video of the final show below courtesy of YouTube user Roger The Engineer:Cream were apparently unhappy with those final shows, and even die hard fans admit it wasn’t the band at the peak of their powers. “It wasn’t a good gig; Cream was better than that,” Baker said in the documentary Cream: Classic Artists. “We knew it was all over. We knew we were just finishing it off.”The “disappointing” goodbye, while perhaps not the band’s high water mark, represents an interesting time in their trajectory. Cream would go on to play together a few more times, with critically and commercially successful reunions in 1993 and 2005.

It’s nice to succeed. When you feel that you’ve truly accomplished something, it’s the greatest feeling in the world. Think of success like a busy commute. The majority of people get by, but some end up on the side of the road. While we each have our own definition of what success looks like for us, you definitely don’t want to end up like the guy in the ditch. Here are five things you won’t see a successful person do . . .They don’t blame others for their shortcomings: Successful people know that if you blame others for your own mistakes, you’ll never be able to feel in control of your life. Succeeding is about learning and sometimes the greatest way to learn is to fail. If you want to be successful, accept and learn from the mistakes that you’ve made. Your future self will be glad you did.They aren’t afraid to seek assistance: When you’re starting out, you may know a little about some things, but you definitely don’t know a lot about everything. Be smart enough to realize that you can’t become the best version of yourself without a little help along the way. Whether it’s from mentors or co-workers, you’ll need a few assists from time to time.They don’t get stuck in the past: If you want to move forward in your career, sometimes you have to let go of the past. Being successful requires the guts to take a chance every now and then. Don’t be afraid. Just because you experienced failure before, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take a risk again.They don’t fear change: For some, change is fun, and for others, it’s never easy. If you’re part of the latter group, focus on the change as an exciting opportunity with amazing possibilities. When you embrace new challenges, you’re opening yourself up to something that could possibly change your life for the better.They don’t give up: Most people don’t find themselves becoming an overnight success. It’s a lot of work and it takes intestinal fortitude. It’s cliché to say “when the going gets tough, the tough get going,” but it’s so true. You’ll never accomplish your goals if you give up. You have to keep pushing while keeping your eye on the prize. 381SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed captain Steven Gerrard will miss the next four to six weeks with a hamstring injury. The England skipper limped out of Saturday’s 4-1 win over West Ham with the problem and Rodgers on Thursday confirmed that the 33-year-old will not play again until the new year. “Steven is, as reported, probably going to be up to about four weeks or so,” Rodgers told Liverpool’s official website. Press Association “So he’ll go through an extensive treatment programme over the next numbers of weeks and hopefully we can get him back that little bit sooner. “But certainly at this stage, it was a four to six-week injury and we’ll see how we look with that.” If Gerrard misses the minimum four weeks then Liverpool will be without his services for clashes against Tottenham, Cardiff, Manchester City, Chelsea, Hull and Stoke, as well as their FA Cup clash against either Oldham or Mansfield. Rodgers did add that Jordan Henderson, who hurt his ankle in a Kevin Nolan challenge last weekend, had been training without problem.

Mount Maunganui: BJ Watling on Sunday became the first New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman to score a double hundred in Test cricket. Watling achieved the feat on the fourth day of the ongoing first Test against England at the Bay Oval. The 34-year-old scored played a brilliant knock of 205 runs. His 473-ball inning was studded with 24 fours and a six. Alongwith left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner — who also scored his highest Test score of 126 — Watling stitched a 261-run partnership for the seventh wicket.Former New Zealand captain Brendon McCullum earlier held the record for scoring the highest runs by a Black Caps wicketkeeper. McCullum had scored 185 runs against Bangladesh at Hamilton in 2010. Former India skipper M.S. Dhoni holds the record for the highest score by an Indian stumper. Dhoni had scored 224 runs against Australia at Chennai in 2013.The record for the highest score by a wicketkeeper in Test cricket belongs to Andy Flower who had scored 232 not out against India at Nagpur in 2000, followed by Kumar Sangakkara who had played a knock of 230 runs against Pakistan at Lahore in 2003.
