On Sept .3 we're scheduled to play at Wembley Stadium In London, England for the Taylor Hawkins tribute concert held by the Foo Fighters, we were invited by Dave Grohl. Many other acts will play. A second tribute concert will be held in Los Angeles at the Forum sometime at the end of September. A third gig is Joe Walsh's annual Veterans Charity concert on November 13th at Nationwide arena in Columbus, Ohio. Nine Inch Nails and the Black Keys are also on the bill. All Ohio bands.

    Dang. I’m near Tampa. Wish I was closer.

    But very cool, and thanks for posting it up here, Dale. I’ve enjoyed your playing since the early days. Such a great feel. Glad to hear you’re still rocking in the JG line-up. That’s gonna be amazing.

  4. Wow , Dale Peters!

    I've always wondered , this vid is from '71, so is that a Tele bass modded with a spit coil?

    Out there!
    Do a gig in Cleveland. I have never seen TJG in all the years I have been living there! Only Joe a couple of times. You used to jam with an old drummer friend of mine Dave Goodman.

    Hey Dale, I gotta say thanks!

    I started playing bass with James Gang songs as much as anything else!
    I didn't know who was playing bass for years.

    I site Dale Peters along with Pete Cetera, Jack Bruce, Phil Chen & Wilbur Bascomb (Jeff Beck) as first influencers.

    Enjoy your gigs!

    Your lines on Funk 49 were hugely influential to me in hearing the role of the bass and deciding it sounded like fun. Thanks!

    Regrettably, I won’t be able make any of those shows. :(. However, I am forwarding all info on the Columbus gig to my buddy who’s a Toledo native out here. He’d definitely be interested.

    Thanks again for all the great music you, Jim and Joe put out! :thumbsup: This album was a constant play on my phonograph! Love your live playing on Walk Away.

    You definitely formed my early bass style after hearing Rides Again and Live at Carnegie Hall albums (Yes I said albums). Lol. Any shows near North Carolina? Thankyou guys for all the timeless music!!!!
    P.S. I still have the "Bugsley" pick you gave me leaving the stage at Greensboro Coleseum in the early 70s as a young lad.

    I caught the show when the JG came to Irving Tx a few years ago. It was awesome. Still have my JG Rides Again Hoodie ! That album holds fond memories for me.

    “The James Gang” merits its own sub-forum…seems to me.
