Derek Trucks Is The Best On Earth

Been a long time since a post, but something I saw this weekend compelled me. Friday night I went down to Washington DC, home of Samuelson’s Buyers, and saw a spectacle – The Tedeschi Trucks Band. I’ve seen them a few times and have seen the Allman Brothers several times with Derek Trucks. In fact, [...]

Grateful Dead Soldier Field July 3-5, 2015 – WOW!

Well, I guess dreams really do come true. I started a blog post before I left that I never finished titled, “Is This Really Happening? The Grateful Dead With Trey?” Well it happened and this could have been the best musical experience of my life. Here’s how the post before I left started: “How many [...]

Summer Time’s Come and Gone…

Not a lot out of Ramble On Ron lately but a lot of exciting developments for Samuelson’s Buyers in the fall. For now, check out a smokin’ US Blues from Jerry and the boys (Bobby and his short shorts) at Rich Stadium 7/4/89.

Phish Halloween 2013 – A Big Dud!

So I traveled again to see Phish. This time to Atlantic City for the anticipated Halloween run. I saw one of the best shows ever in Hampton that reviewed in my last post, so I was really pumped for Halloween. Traditionally, Phish plays a very special Halloween show which includes two sets of Phish and [...]

Phish Hampton Coliseum 10-20-13

Plain and simple, there’s just no band on earth who gets it done like Phish. I see a lot of live music, and the energy, crowd, and flat out jams/guitar ripping at a Phish show is way beyond any other live act. So I headed four hours south to the Hampton Coliseum, AKA The Mothership, [...]

Allman Brothers At The Beacon – Southbound

It’s that time of year again! I will be going to see the Allman Brothers at the Beacon Theater in NYC this weekend. It’s the best place to see them. Here’s a great clip from a few days ago with a horn section and Eric Krasno from Soulive playing Southbound. Derek trucks looks especially happy [...]

Found It! Dire Straits, Rotterdam 1978

This was just picked up by the Associated Press yesterday. AP (Baltimore) October 8, 2012 Area man Steve Sherman found a copy of Dire Straits Live At Rotterdam 1978 on You Tube and excitedly forwarded  the link to his friend Ronnie Samuelson. The concert featured one of the greatest unknown guitar licks of all time [...]

Eric Clapton’s Patek Philippe Watch For Sale

Now this is cool! I’ve posted about large diamonds like The Graff Pink going up for auction and there are often famous guitars and instruments for sale though various action houses. However, when I saw that Eric Clapton’s Patek Philippe watch was going on the auction block, it gave me goosebumps. Granted, the star of [...]

Warren Haynes Solo, Jessica

It’s been a while (all summer) since I’ve posted, as I am still “Lost in Transactions” but I want to show a short video clip of Warren Haynes playing Jessica that I saw at Merriweather Post Pavilion. Enjoy! This was taken with my iPhone, not bad

The Dirty Mac – Yer Blues

My friend Glen sent this to me and I can’t stop watching it. Now here’s a band – John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards (on bass!) and Mitch Mitchell playing Yer Blues from the White Album circa 1968. Does it get any better? The interview in the beginning with Mick Jagger is great too. Enjoy!
