“And then there was the Chicago jam band Umphrey’s McGee, which offered its twist on the Grateful Dead by injecting a hint of progressive rock…

As Umphrey’s endless, meandering solos wafted over Grant Park like billowing clouds of pot smoke, somewhere, James C. Petrillo had to be wondering about the smell.” [Sun-Times]

While it’s annoying to see “the media” compare every jamband in the world to the Grateful Dead and reference pot smoke, my reaction to this article was simply to laugh out loud.

There ya go. LOL. That is all.
