(1) I know jam music is hard if not impossible to define as a "style", but other than "music that appeals to shak", what else makes MMW or Steel Pulse fall into that category?
(2) You should hate Tea Leaf Green, because the have the audacity to combine jam music and hip hop: http://youtu.be/2rAwU-14NNA
(3) All sorts of things might have contributed to the demise of veoose, langerado and rothbory, maybe even the bands they booked. But there is no way in hell you can back up your claim. Because there are dozens of jam oriented festivals out there still going strong who have booked hip hop in the past and continue to do so (Jam Cruise being one of them).
(4) Thank you, thank you, thank you for making it so much easier for me to miss JC 11. All I needed was a reminded of how many boneheaded, intolerant asshole moe. fans there will be on the boat this year to realize that I am better of staying at home. It was hard to imagine that I could have an even lower opinion of you, but to come in and piss on a thread were music lovers pay tribute to a recently deceased musician, one who during his career did so much more than only make hip hop, icing on the cake I guess. I used to be sad for people like you, because I believed you miss out on some truly great art, but now I am just glad that I don't have to deal with your type and some of the shows I like to go see.
