For the last 25 years or so, I have been part of an online group of friends called Postcard from Hell (or Postcard for short). It started as a discussion board for Uncle Tupelo, but has become a network of a few hundred people who have now known each other forever. I am not too active on the list, more of a lurker, but I have met many people in person and made a lot of friends.
A few Postcarders went to Cancun for the Sky Blue Sky fest happening now. Postcarder Rob and his wife Crystal were in a very serious car accident down there- Rob is in ICU now. I can’t stop thinking about them and pulling for their well-being. Since they were there to see Wilco (and others), I thought I would start pulling some tapes from when I taped Wilco back in the mid-90s. Here they are at the Horde fest, with Black Crowes guesting on a couple of songs!
Please get better and come home soon, Rob and Crystal.
I don’t know if Rob is in any condition to listen to these, but I can do an all-Wilco week if it helps make the hospital stay better.
