    Conan: Isaac Hayes was on and he sang "Shaft" using the MW7 plus about 12 other musicians and 3 singers. And he changed the words to "Conan," which was funny at first but then I got bummed because he didn't really sing "Shaft." But the band sounded great, and did an awesome extended ending. Mike Merritt played a black G&L Precision with what sounded like flats.

    Carson Daly: The North Mississippi All-Stars are on, and their guitarist is playing not only guitar but a 1 string guitar made out of a cigar box. He called it a "lobo." It has a round fretless neck, and sounded amazing. Chris Chew is playing a Lakland, as he has for the past couple of years.

    Anyway, I thought that all was pretty cool.

    I was actually bummed that Isaac didn't do one of his unknown songs (AKA not Shaft/Conan) so people can see him as a very talented artist... but instead he'll remain a gimmick icon in the public eye.

    I did smile at how Mike Merritt had a huge grin the whole time... everytime he looked at Isaac he smiled really big. Something tells me the dude is a fan... Even though he just does covers... the dude can play!

    Speaking of Carson: FIREBALL MINISTRY WAS ON a day or two ago! A Stoner rock band that isn't Queens of the Stoneage getting some mainstream props!!

    And a week or so ago Conan had a trio consisting of bass, drums, and UKELELE???? But the uke player was a killer.

    I'd even buy his CD if I had a clue who he was. But the shows are really bad about explaining whose musical performance you switched over during. Okay I know that is bad grammar, but I wrote it four times and none of them looked right.

    Jake also recorded with Bela Fleck & the Flecktones. His drummer is Noel Okimoto & I think the bassist is Dean Taba.
