Last week at The Hamilton in Washington DC, Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell was joined by John Bell (Widespread Panic), Mike Mills (R.E.M.) and Paul Riddle (Marshall Tucker Band), for the White House Correspondents’ Jam II. The group performed under the moniker “Phil and the Busters“, which kept very much in line with the DC vibe, albeit in a tongue-and-cheek manner.The show was put on by Mother Nature Networks (a leading source for environmental news, advice on sustainable living, conservation and social responsibility), and features a crowd made up of mainly journalists dressed up in anything from blue jeans to black ties. The supergroup put on a lively set, which featured a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Jumpin’ Jack Flash”. Check out video of the performance below via Mother Nature:
The Fare Thee Well shows brought together Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead a few summers ago. While three out of the Core Four have currently assembled as Dead & Company, a group which is currently on fire halfway through their summer tour, the four former Grateful Dead members previously toured together over the years following Jerry Garcia’s death. One such touring iteration featuring Weir, Lesh, Kreutzman, and Hart was The Dead, whose 2003 configuration also tapped Jimmy Herring, Rob Barraco, Jeff Chimenti and Joan Osborne to round out the group’s stellar lineup. Following The Dead’s one-off February show at The Warfield in San Francisco that year, the ensemble launched a major tour that summer.After hitting Bonnaroo in its second year ever, the band worked their way up the East coast, eventually landing at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center later in the month in June. On this day fifteen years ago — June 20, 2003 — The Dead’s headlining performance featured opening act Steve Winwood to get things going. Winwood not only opened but later joined in for a little fun on the classic Traffic tune “Dear Mr. Fantasy.” However, that was not the only special collaboration that went on that night. One of the bigger surprises of the show came after a rockin’ “Drums/Space” segment when the band was joined by Phish bassist Mike Gordon for a bass-fueled jam session. The magic between Mike Gordon and Phil Lesh was unstoppable following the jam and was carried all the way through a supreme rendition of “Eyes Of The World.”Thanks to the work of Ken Doughty and Matt Cole, we have full audio to share from this performance. Tune in and listen to the magic of The Dead (along with some very special friends) below.
The legacy of the late Mason Hammond (1903-2002), Pope Professor of Latin Languages and Literature in the department of the Classics, will be honored at a ceremony In Palermo, Sicily, on Saturday, March 24, by the Superintendent’s Office for Cultural and Environmental Patrimony of Palermo. Professor Hammond, a Lt. Col in the U.S. military from 1942–46, was an original member and officer in the Monuments, Fine Arts and Archives Office, and was instrumental in the reconstruction of the historic monuments damaged in the bombings during World War II. An exhibition on view now at the restored Basilica Real Magione in Palermo, one of the buildings heavily damaged during the war, was organized by Attilio Albergoni, chairman of the Associazione Culturale Mediterraniae and a military historian with a special interest in the Italian/American joint recovery efforts at the end of World War II. The exhibition displays photographs, maps, pamphlets, and other documents illustrating the destruction of the city from Allied bombing and its recovery. Also included is correspondence between Lt. Col Hammond and his Italian counterpart Mario Guiotto, superintendent for monuments in western Sicily. In addition, civilian and military artifacts are on view and help characterize what life was like in the last years of the war and the immediate aftermath. A publication accompanies the exhibition: “La Guerra dell’Arte” by Attilio Albergoni, Navarre Editore, 2018.Students from Classical Studies 112 traveled to Sicily during spring break and were able to view the exhibition and visit with Mr. Albergoni.Professor Hammond graduated from Harvard College in 1925. He earned a second B.A. and a B.Litt. from Balliol College, Oxford where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He returned to Harvard in 1928 where he taught, interspersed with stints at the American Academy in Rome and The Villa I Tatti in Florence, until his retirement as Pope Professor of Latin Language and Literature in 1973. His critical role during World War II as one of the Monuments Men earned him a Bronze Star and he was decorated by the governments of France, Holland, and Italy. On Saturday, officials from the Office of the Superintendents in Palermo will present a plague and citation to Professor Hammond’s daughter, Elizabeth Hammond Llewellyn, recognizing the significant contributions Hammond made to the rebirth of the city after the war.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Some followers of the QAnon conspiracy theory are now turning to online support groups and even therapy to help them move on, now that it’s clear Donald Trump’s presidency is over. Former adherents interviewed by The Associated Press say the process of leaving QAnon is akin to kicking a drug habit, and urge Americans to show empathy to those who fell for the hoax, which suggested that Trump was fighting a secretive war against a sprawling conspiracy of powerful Satanic pedophiles. Yet while some QAnon supporters are leaving the movement, others are concocting ever more elaborate explanations to keep their faith alive.

Philip Hobbs is looking to see Defi Du Seuil put his Queen Mother Champion Chase disappointment behind him when he bids for back-to-back wins in the Shloer Chase at Cheltenham on Sunday.A prolific Grade One winner over hurdles and fences, Hobbs remains at a loss to explain is below-par run in March.- Advertisement – With both Altior and Chacun Pour Soi late absentees, Defi Du Seuil was sent off the 2-5 favourite for the two-mile blue riband, but could only finish fourth behind Politologue.Hobbs said: “Defi is in good form and everything has gone well up to now. I’m very happy with him.“He was maybe a bit flat before the Champion Chase and Barry (Geraghty) felt during the race he didn’t run with his usual zest and he found nothing at all.- Advertisement – “There was nothing wrong with him in any way afterwards and we’ve not found any real reason for it.“He is in good form now so hopefully we can put that (Queen Mother run) behind us. The penalty he has does give the others a bit more of an advantage, but hopefully he can cope with it.“We will just take it race by race with him as it depends how he runs as to what we do next regarding the trip. As he has got a bit older he has got a bit stronger, but he is very enthusiastic – as he always is – and he seems in good form.”- Advertisement – Put The Kettle On won the Arkle Trial at this meeting 12 months ago and was then put away until March, when she returned to land the Arkle itself.Her trainer Henry de Bromhead feels there is every reason to take advantage of her apparent love of the Cotswolds.When asked if getting further track experience was behind the decision to run, De Bromhead said: “It’s nearly as much that she loves the place so much.“She’s really progressed on her two runs there, so she seems to really enjoy it. It’s as much that as anything, to be honest – that’s probably why.”Rouge Vif was ultra-impressive for Harry Whittington when winning a handicap on his reappearance, and now goes up in class.Whittington said: “This is a horse that ever since we’ve jumped a fence with him, he has just been electric.“There have been so many question marks about the undulations of Cheltenham, but he put that to bed in his run three weeks ago.“We had the Haldon Gold Cup as our Plan A, but we thought we’d put the Cheltenham entry in, just to look at it. We then thought we’d be mad not to run because of the good ground and because we wanted to learn about the track anyway.”Duc Des Genievres has his first run for Paul Nicholls having left Willie Mullins, for whom he won the 2019 Arkle, while another Grade One winner in the field is Nigel Twiston-Davies’ Riders Onthe Storm – but he is dropping in trip.“I’m very interested in trying him at this two-mile trip seeing as there aren’t a great deal of two-and-a-half-mile races around for him at the moment,” Twiston-Davies told William Hill.“We can always go back to two-and-a-half after Sunday if things don’t work out, but I’m keen to see exactly what we’ve got.“He’s very quick, proved he can mix it with the best last season and is as fit as anything we’ve sent out first time so far this season.”Brian Ellison’s Forest Bihan, having his first run since winning the Old Roan at Aintree over a year ago, completes the field. – Advertisement –

The 27-year-old midfielder was reportedly driving a black Nissan Skyline GT-R Nismo luxury sports car when it is claimed he hit the bike near his home in Altrincham, Cheshire, on Sunday night.
