Post Col. Bruce Hampton
I saw Col. Bruce Hampton here in Knoxville, TN at Barley's Taproom and Pizzeria.
What an awesome show. The band played for 2hours with a short 30min. break in the middle.

I asked Col. Bruce about coming back to Wanee this year and he said
"If they will let me play" so I asked "What do you mean by that" he said "I don't think the managers/promoters of that festival like me very much."

Is there anything we here on the board can do to get him to Wanee this year ?
I would love to see him play a set and then sit in with The All,man Brothers one night.

It just doesn't make any sense. EVERYBODY loves him, except, somehow, the folks in charge. I have never met anyone who didn't love the Col's music or at least admire his contribution and spirit.

I DON'T GET IT!

(You have to say it like a Val.)

I don't get it either.

The Col. said he loves Wanee and would love to come back but can't because the management won't let him.

Yes! As John Bell refers to him, he is the "Granddaddy of us all."

How does management NOT get this? Somebody must have a real hard-on about this. There is no other rational way to explain it.

I know, I know, looking for logic in all the wrong places.

He is so personable to everyone and will talk to anyone. He is a true ambassador. That's the part I REALLY don't get.

He is very personable. Last night he was very gracious to sign my CD insert and take a photo with me. When I asked him about one he he seemed like he was very disappointed in the fact that they won't have them back he loves playing the festival loves the crowd but the promoters won't let him come back and he doesn't understand why. He said he has never said a bad word about wanee or anybody associated with it and he doesn't understand why he gets such a bad rap with them
