To add to the weekend’s celebratory drama, a rare snowstorm in the Asheville area prohibited many of Saturday’s Christmas Jam performers from leaving as scheduled. The predicament led to Warren and several of his talented friends returning to the nearby Orange Peel—where their pre-jam was held on Thursday—for a surprise, cover-filled pop-up concert on Sunday night.Night one of Christmas jam on Friday saw Haynes and Gov’t Mule channel their inner Pink Floyd with a full headlining set as their common alter-ego, Dark Side of the Mule. Saturday’s festivities picked up right where Warren and company left off on Friday, beginning with the guitarist reuniting with his old friends as part of the 45 Cherry Band. The live band included a mix of musicians who played at the very first Christmas Jam back in 1988, which took place at an Asheville club named 45 Cherry. The band would play through a few tunes before Jeff Anders joined in for a cover of U2‘s “One”. Next, Philip Ashley came on to play on Haynes-penned latter day Allman Brothers Band hit, “Soulshine”. The festivities continued with a performance from Joe Bonamassa, who jammed out to his own “If Heartaches Were Nickels” before giving fans a mix of classic rock covers from Jeff Beck, Led Zeppelin, and Cream.Jim James‘ performance followed shortly thereafter, with the My Morning Jacket singer/guitarist returning after his impressive showing on Friday to play some of the songs off his recent solo album, Uniform Distortion. Joanne Shaw Taylor followed with a trio that also included drummer Rocky Lindsley and bassist Johnny Jump. The three appropriately played a trio of songs, ending with a cover of Freddie King‘s blues power anthem, “Goin’ Down”.Foo Fighters‘ Dave Grohl took the stage next, beginning with the live debut of his lengthy “PLAY” instrumental. Grohl continued jamming with a sit-in from Haynes that saw the two rock heroes lead the way on a cover of the Foo’s “Times Like These”. Grohl would go on to repay the favor during Gov’t Mule’s headlining set, during which he joined the quartet for a killer cover of Neil Young‘s rock and roll anthem, “Rockin’ In The Free World”, featuring a mid-song interlude of Band Of Gypsys’ “Machine Gun”.Eric Church also took the stage as the evening continued for a mix of solo acoustic and full band performance. Some of the solo songs Church performed for his fellow North Carolinians included “Desperate Man” and “Record Year”. Church continued with full band covers of The Allman Brothers Band’s “Ain’t Wastin’ Time No More”, Bruce Springsteen’s “Atlantic City”, and The Band‘s beloved classic, “The Weight”.Finally, Gov’t Mule capped the memorable night with a headlining set including “Thorazine Shuffle”, “Revolution Come, Revolution Go”, “Million Miles From Yesterday”, “Dreams & Songs”, “Red Baron”, the Grohl-assisted Neil Young cover, and a set-closing “Mule” with the help of Audley Freed and Ron Holloway.Gov’t Mule with Dave Grohl – “Rockin’ In The Free World” (Neil Young cover) – 12/8/2018Sunday’s weather-induced pop-up show may have caught fans and Asheville residents by complete surprise, but Gov’t Mule and Grohl (on both drums and guitar) made sure that fans stuck in the city would have as much fun as possible with a two-set, 13-song performance that included covers of songs by Led Zeppelin, Nirvana and Tom Petty, just to name a few. The show began with another live rendition of Grohl’s instrumental marathon, “PLAY”, before continuing with covers of Zeppelin’s “Since I’ve Been Loving You” and Tom Petty’s southern rock masterpiece, “You Don’t Know How It Feels”. Set continued with more covers including Nirvana’s 90s grunge ballad. “All Apologies”, Petty’s “Breakdown”, and The Beatles‘ “Helter Skelter” with Jimmy Vivino on guitar before closing out with The Rolling Stones‘ “Bitch”.Sunday’s second Gov’t Mule + Dave Grohl set kept the moving with more fan-favorite covers, as the band began with Temple of the Dog‘s “Hunger Strike” before tearing into a cover of Traffic‘s “Dear Mr. Fantasy” and transitioning right back into “Hunger Strike”. The augmented band continued their classic rock run with a cover of The Who‘s “Eminence Front”, followed by a return to Zeppelin for their hypnotizing psych-rock power ballad, “No Quarter”. Finally, the was rounde out with one last cover of the evening in Lynyrd Skynyrd‘s “Simple Man”.You can watch videos from the surprise Sunday performance below:Gov’t Mule with Dave Grohl – “Since I’ve Been Loving You” [Led Zeppelin cover] – 12/9/2018[Video: Tom Libera]Gov’t Mule with Dave Grohl – “You Don’t Know How It Feels” [Tom Petty cover] – 12/9/2018[Video: Tom Libera]Gov’t Mule with Dave Grohl + Jimmy Vivino – “Helter Skelter” [The Beatles cover] – 12/9/2018[Video: Tom Libera]This weekend turned out to be quite the marathon of great rock and jam performances by Warren and company, making for a fitting 30th anniversary of his Asheville benefit show for his hometown community.

Arsenal news: Club rival Liverpool for £85m man and Ramsey to be used in swap deal?

first_img Premier League Team of the Season so far, including Liverpool and Leicester stars Every time Ally McCoist lost it on air in 2019, including funny XI reactions huge blow Emery’s early Arsenal career has been rather positive 4 MONEY Gianluca ManciniEarlier this week it was reported that Arsenal have sent scouts to watch Mancini, the Atalanta defender. The 22-year-old has emerged as a real star since establishing himself in the Serie A club’s starting line-up, and he’s even shown to be just as effective in an opponents’ area as his own – scoring four times in just 11 matches.The Gunners have taken note of Mancini’s performances and, along with Borussia Dortmund, are keeping tabs on him. And they may be rushed into moving for Mancini given the interest in him, which could mean they approach the player when the transfer window reopens in January.Junior FirpoThe 22-year-old Betis star has been linked with a move to Arsenal for a number of months, with their interest in the wing-back renewed earlier this week. The Gunners’ interest in a new left sided defender makes sense given Nacho Monreal, now 32, is still first choice for the position. Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ shining Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era? Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury A long-term replacement would be a wise purchase, and Firpo has shown he has the potential to get to the top of the game. He possesses all the traits of a modern day wing-back, with his remarkable tally of four goals in 27 matches proving his attacking talents.However, Arsenal will be forced to shell out almost £44million to sign Firpo, as he has a release clause written in his Betis contract. Nonetheless, talkSPORT told you earlier this month that the Gunners are not put off by such a high asking price.Patrik SchickRoma are expected to loan Schick out during the January window due to his struggles in the Italian capital, and Arsenal want to take advantage. The Czech Republic international was highly-rated during his time with Sampdoria, but he’s failed to hit the back of the net with the same regularity since joining the Giallorossi.This has not turned Arsenal off the 22-year-old, with the Gunners seriously considering moving for Schick when the transfer window reopens to replace Danny Welbeck, who faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines with an ankle injury.Various reports have suggested Arsenal could offer Roma a player-plus-cash deal for Schick, with the north Londoners ready to use Aaron Ramsey, the Wales midfielder, as a makeweight.Nicolas Pepe 4 Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move Pepe has been prolific in front of goal over the past couple of seasons Firpo hit the headlines when he scored against Barcelona earlier this month In the Premier League the Emirates Stadium club sit just three points off the top four after 12 matches, and they’re currently on a run of 16 games without defeat in all competitions.However, Emery is not entirely happy with his squad and he intends to strengthen it when business gets back under way.But who have Arsenal been linked with signing and what deals could they get over the line in January?talkSPORT.com have searched around to find all the latest rumours involving the Gunners, and you can read our Arsenal transfer round-up below… Barcelona are rumoured to be ready to cash in on Dembele Arsenal are prepping themselves for a busy January with just over a month to go until the transfer window reopens.The Gunners have been linked with a host of players heading into the new year as manager Unai Emery plots to continue his fine start to life in north London. Son ban confirmed as Tottenham fail with appeal to overturn red card REVEALED Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade Latest Football News BEST OF Ousmane DembeleWhile Liverpool are reported to be preparing an £85million offer for Dembele, Arsenal also remain in the hunt for the Barcelona forward. The Camp Nou club are believed to be ready to cash in on Dembele, and the Gunners may look to take advantage of their willingness to sell the France international.While the financial outlay to buy Dembele would be huge, the potential of signing him is a rather unique situation. The 21-year-old is widely regarded as one of the best young players in world football, and he remains hot property despite his apparent struggles in Catalonia. 4 Where Ancelotti ranks with every Premier League boss for trophies won REVEALED Arsenal fans are hoping to see Emery strengthen the wide attacking positions in January, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang forced to play out of position on the wing at times this season. As previously mentioned Dembele is one player the Gunners are looking at, while the north Londoners have also been linked with moving for Lille winger Pepe.Pepe enjoyed a great 2017/18 season, scoring 14 goals and creating a further five, and he’s continued his fine form this campaign, already netting eight times and registering seven assists. Able to play anywhere across the front line, Pepe was frequently utilised as a centre-forward last term, but he’s returned to his strongest position in 2018/19 – the right side of the attack.A couple of months ago it was claimed Arsenal are keeping tabs on Pepe ahead of a potential January swoop for the 23-year-old, though they are believed to be rivalled by Manchester United and Bayern Munich in the race to secure the Ivory Coast international’s signature RANKED REPLY 4 no dice ADVICE last_img read more

Not Afraid to Put an All-new Team against Oman: Igor Stimac after India’s 1-1 Draw against Afghanistan

Dushanbe: India secured a point against Afghanistan with a late equaliser from Seiminlen Doungel but Indian football team coach Igor Stimac has already shifted his focus to Muscat where his wards will face-off against Oman at the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex in Muscat on Tuesday.”Oman are much better now than the team we played against in Guwahati. We know for a fact that match is going to be very difficult for us. We need to see how quickly we recover after the difficult game that we had just played,” Stimac said after India played a 1-1 draw with Afghanistan at the Central Republican Stadium in Dushanbe. “We have many new young players coming through and it’ll be difficult to expect great results from them immediately. I have enough players in my disposal and I’m not afraid to put an all-new team against Oman,” Stimac added.”Earlier, it was not very common when India used to come back after conceding. In the last two games we came back and snatched points in the dying minutes. It clearly shows that we are not ready to give up until the final whistle,” Stimac said.”This is a primary trait of a football team who loves to challenge themselves. We are a team who prefers to push their limits when they’re behind – that makes me proud.””Whoever watched the match, must have enjoyed. It was an action-packed exciting match. In the end, neither of us could have been happy with a draw but that’s how it is. I feel we deserved more. We created a few more chances than Afghanistan and so, we deserved at least a point if not three,” the Croatian coach analysed.Seminlen Doungel, who was introduced in the 77th minute at the expense of Pritam Kotal, scored India’s late goal to provide much-needed relief to the Indian dugout. The agile midfielder expressed his “joy and satisfaction” after scoring the equaliser which earned India their consecutive third draw in the campaign.”A footballer always nurtures a dream of representing his country. I’m no different and then scoring for your country when it was needed, gives me immense joy and satisfaction. But, it’s just the starting of the journey for me, I need to keep my head down and continue the good work as long as possible,” Doungel said.On being asked about the upcoming Oman match, Doungel said, “Oman’s football acumen is there for everyone to see. They are a formidable force at home and we have a steep mountain to climb. We have garnered some good results in the past and if we can execute our plans, we can be hopeful.” AfghanistanIgor StimacIndiaIndian football team First Published: November 15, 2019, 2:44 PM ISTlast_img read more
