Dead & Company Shares Free Stream From Smokin’ San Francisco Performance

first_imgLast Monday, May 23rd, Dead & Company performed a free show at the historic Fillmore venue in San Francisco, CA. A hotspot for Grateful Dead concerts in the sixties, Dead & Company filled the 1,150-person room with both eager fans and beautiful music. For those who couldn’t make it, the band has another free gift in store. Thanks to a partnership with Nugs.net, the band is offering a full stream from the performance for free. Not only that, but the group has promised to share high quality audio recordings from each of their stops on the summer tour, allowing for unprecedented access to Dead & Company show recordings. We recently spoke to bassist Oteil Burbridge and asked how excited he was for the tour to begin. “Excited like you can’t imagine,” said Burbridge. Last year was so much fun but I can tell the band is in a new place this year. Having the support from the fans really frees you to not think so much and just be responsive to the moment.” The band’s tour starts on June 10th.You can listen to the free stream on the Nugs.net app, which can be found here.last_img read more

Ozil: I’m one of world’s best

first_img He said: “The whole club can be proud to have such a fantastic manager with so much experience, playing with style and doing so many great things for 18 years here. “The boss has always blooded youngsters, and helped make them into some of the best players in the world. That’s also why I came here. I wanted to develop myself further.” Having got into the habit of lifting trophies this summer, Ozil is keen for more. “Of course Arsenal can win the Premier League,” he said. “We also want to show that we can play better in the Champions League. We have the potential to reach the final.” Mesut Ozil believes criticism of his Arsenal performances stems from high expectations borne out of being “one of the best number 10s in the world”. The Germany international struggled to live up to his £42million transfer fee after joining the Gunners from Real Madrid last season, though he did end the campaign as an FA Cup winner. That Wembley win over Hull was followed by World Cup success with his country this summer but still questions persist over whether he can impose himself in the Barclays Premier League. Ozil, though, told the Daily Telegraph: “The opinions of fans are important to me and I’m happy they have such high expectations of me. I have high expectations of myself. “I’m one of the best players in the world in that number 10 position. Fans, coaches, players and everyone knows that my best position is playmaker. It’s different playing on the left. “When I was in Madrid, I often played on the right. I enjoyed that because I’m left-footed and I was able to cut inside to give assists and get shots on target. On the left, it’s more difficult.” Manager Arsene Wenger defended the 25-year-old on Friday, likening him to a virtuoso musician and suggesting Ozil’s lack of aggression and defensive ability fuels a perception of him as ‘lightweight’. Wenger said: “People are very harsh on Ozil because he’s a player who is easy with his play. “When you watch his game back the next day you think ‘what a player’. Everything he does is intelligent and the timing of absolutely everything he does is absolutely perfect. “He’s like a guy who plays music with perfect timing. There aren’t many players like that.” Ozil is grateful for the Frenchman’s support. Press Associationlast_img read more
