Unfortunately Big D wasn’t there. I spoke to Donny after the gig and he said Big D had a foot issue that needed a doctor’s attention. Here’s to his speedy recovery. His guitar sounded as good as ever at the Broadside.
    yup

    Yes, he was. I was there and have a pic but don't know how to post. He doesn't play with him often as he has his own band and gigs going on (per Renee, she knows a lot about his band).

    Always nice when he does play with Jon. What a great guitarist that guy is. His solos are things of beauty.
    I heard Jon King Cleary interviewed on OZ a little while back, to promote the gig at the Broadside, and I think he that he said that Large D resides some were in Texas these days.
    And that he was delighted to have him and other guests that evening.

    Ear Robert was at the Broadside Gig and told me that it was very good.

    Big D has been gone for several years now. I did see him play with Jon last October or so at a free thing in City Park but that is a rarity.

    Nothing beyond what has been reported, that he had a serious back injury and other health issues. I did see him and chat a couple of times during FQF and he has done a couple of gigs of late.

    Jon did start on guitar so there is that. From last night:

    Not jammed at all. I thought no one was coming at first but it started later than I expected to let the Festers filter in. You could get to any spot you wanted. So much better than packed HOB shows that can be very uncomfortable. It truly was one of the best nights I've ever had in there.
