no opinion of paul really he just had a great gig there for years...

dave was the funniest guy on the planet when he first started the show...

the last few years of the show he was a complete dick when every word out of his mouth was political.....

zero humor and his show and audience left in droves....but he didnt care

dave make me laugh i dont give a rats azz about your political beliefs...

they were proven wrong then and are wrong still today and i am sure he is a super dick now....

sit alone on your ranch dave and suck a horse dick.......nobody but your horse is listening to you...

:rofl:
nope - give someone a platform or live mic and your gonna hear it

just like veegans, cross fitters and yoga folk
Yep....obviously I have no "platform" but I never talk politics or even wear any political attire when I play. Gigs are hard enough to come by without alienating half of the audience.

one joke maybe for one side and maybe one joke for the other....to cover your ass for both sides works...

but then stop, no more...they will all chuckle then they want to hear you play and sing....

nothing wrong with that.

or try to find one good funny joke about politics then move on...dont repeat..
.

dave just got obsessed with it and it showed...it was his demise

Paul is uber dorky.
He is definitely not an entertainer.
He can't even tell an interesting story.
All his stories about the cat's he hang with. Are boring as hell.
It's almost embarrassing to listen to him use words.

But you have to admit, he is one hella musician.


I mean, holy crap !!
Look at the people that Paul got hang with !!!
and not just hang with them. JAM with them. As equals.

Persona aside. I sure envy his music carrier.

y'all can talk about all the people he's played with, and how many tunes he knows off the top of his head, and how great his chops are (and they are) but every time I hear Paul Schaefer talk I feel like I need to take a shower with a lot of hot water and lava soap.
