I don’t think there’s closure, per se. That seems to me like the wrong word. You obviously move on and the world keeps spinning and the gigs keep coming and stuff like that, but sometimes, especially like on the tour bus late at night when there are no sounds going on and it’s really silent, I start thinking about Layne and stuff like that, still to this day. And I don’t ever want to stop thinking about Layne.
Easy Street's 25th Anniversary celebration continues with a very special event - a Shadow reunion show & record release party! Formed circa 1982, Shadow features Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready, Danny Newcomb, and brothers in rock Chris and Rick Friel. They’ll be taking the stage to celebrate the release of a new 10-inch single featuring two classic Shadow anthems that haven’t been heard in 30 years! Taking an already outer-limits event into the stratosphere, they’re also bringing Sweet Water with them! Take a ride on the Rock ‘n’ Roll Time Machine with Shadow and Sweet Water August 27th at 7pm - it’s free and all-ages!
